    Oh, Look over there!

    Wonder if the NFL/NBA brouhaha means that Robert Mueller is hitting a nerve!
    Leave it to DJT to make even Sunday more political and divisive than it has gotten on it's own. Enjoy your games!

    I'm not sure how you tie the two together. But maybe. I don't know how he stands all themcriticism even without Mueller. He has nerves of steel, I guess. Maybe Trump thrives on stress. Some people do. And Lord knows he must have plenty of it.

    I think he was simply playing into his base. I'm sure the crowd loved it.

    I think Rexedgar is talking about misdirection. Get everyone talking about the NBA/NFL crap so they don't notice what Mueller is doing.

    Honestly I think he's incredibly thin skinned. I don't think he takes criticism well at all. Yes he's getting beat up daily but that comes with the territory these days for politicians. He seems to take every thing personally and spends an enormous amount of time getting in petty tit-for-tat ****.

    Is anyone who supports Trump a Russian bot? Or only those who get paychecks?

    Trump is not a politician. He wasn't elected by most of those who voted for him to be one.

    He is a real estate developer and salesman. He is also in his 70's.

    If you want to understand how and why he is acting the way he does, that should explain much of it for you.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    I don't know if we have any Russian bots, but it's weird how supportive of Russia many of our conservative posters are these days.
