    Weakest. Commander in Chief. Ever. - The Washington Post

    I wholeheartedly agree with my Post colleague Charles Krauthammer when he writes:

    The military told the commander in chief to go jump in a lake. Generally speaking, this is not a healthy state of affairs in a nation of civilian control. It does carry a whiff of insubordination. But under a president so uniquely impulsive and chronically irrational, a certain vigilance, even prickliness, on the part of the military is to be welcomed.

    The brass framed their inaction as a matter of procedure. But the refusal carried with it a reminder of institutional prerogatives. In this case, the military offered resistance to mere whimsy. Next time, it could be resistance to unlawfulness.

    The military is walking a very fine line here. But it seems increasingly clear that this is a unique president, one who has no idea how to wield power or issue credible threats.


    That last bit, "one who has no idea how to....issue credible threats", is the bad one imo.

    What country fears a leader like Trump, whose entire repetoire of skills is insulting someone, then holding his breath until he get's what he wants? Other countries know they can treat him like a six year old, and it will work.

    Trump only wants the wall for personal reasons and nothing more. Building the wall will not prevent illegals coming into the US. The other side is saying that money would be better spent on other things that will actually make a difference in security.

    Hopes dim for immediate progress on ending partial government shutdown

    WASHINGTON—President Trump abruptly walked out of a meeting with congressional leaders Wednesday after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told him the Democrats wouldn’t approve funding for a border wall, dashing hopes for immediate progress on ending the partial government shutdown.

    Mr. Trump tweeted that the meeting with Mrs. Pelosi (D., Calif.) and Senate Minority [paywall]

    That was not the people. It was the electoral college. He lost by almost 3mil in the popular vote and that continues to be his problem. The majority of the people are not with him.
