I am reminded of this clip for some reason
Law Enforcement Against Prohibition
Drugs are bad, prohibition is worse
I agree that Obama shouldn't have lowered himself into actually giving Trump what he was asking for. That said, its political smart since he let it go long enough that Trump got a lot of attention, began to be painted as a serious GOP candidate, and then had his big crusade made to look like a joke. The fact that some are claiming him a hero is so ****ing ridiculous. "YAY! Thanks to Donald Trump we discovered today what everyone but conspiracy theorists already knew 2 years ago. WHAT A HERO".
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
