    I wasn't a fan of hers. But that doesn't justify putting Trump into office. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face.

    But that's OK. We are at the brink of WW3 with NK. But Hillary's emails were so much more important.

    I didn't vote for either, but it wasn't the emails that turned me off. It was ALL the crap that came with her. The emails were just the cherry on top.

    Does asking a question fall under Presidential power? Yes. 100%.

    And once again the snowflakes and haters fell for the raw meat he skillfully and most likely gleefully dangles before them. Every time he asks an interesting question like that, they jump on it as something equivalent to a papal bull. And the message boards and talking heads on the MSM talk about it as if he said he was actually going to do it. And for the President, mission accomplished. He succeeds once again in exposing them as the dishonest and/or incompetent shills that they are and reducing their influence with thinking people.

    Just proves the fact that two people can look at, let’s use a painting, for example, and come away with an entirely different view of what was right in front of them!

    Yes. And honest criticism of the President is fair game. But I am getting very frustrated with people so careless, ignorant, intellectually dishonest, and/or hateful that they twist, misrepresent, distort, or blatantly lie about what the President actually says in order to try to diminish, hurt, destroy him. That is hateful, unAmerican, and wrong. And I will continue to say so as long as I have the means to do so.

    Carry on! The majority of the responses show that the rhetorical question was crystal clear, to them.

    Those who treat a tweeted question as a statement of intent are not seeing anything in a crystal clear or any other comprehensive manner.

    I see. Couldn't come up with a better case than that?
    Maybe if Obama had threatened to pull Fox's FCC license, it would be a better example.
