Blacks have been waiting 150 years. How long do you think they should have to wait?

Very few people believe anything you say any more Trump. Your credibility is shot.

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-...rotests-n804901

President Donald Trump said Tuesday he felt “ashamed” by “disgraceful” NFL-wide protests and accused participants of disrespecting military members who died or were injured defending the United States.

“I was ashamed of what was taking place,” Trump said during a joint press conference with the Spanish prime minister in the White House Rose Garden, referring to the numerous football players who knelt during the playing of the national anthem before NFL games.

“I don’t think you can disrespect our country, our flag, our national anthem,” Trump said. “Many people have died,” he added, referring to fallen military members.

“Many people are so horribly injured,” he added, before recalling a recent visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

“I saw so many great young people and they are missing legs and they’re missing arms and they’re so badly injured. They were fighting for our country, they were fighting for our flag, they were fighting for our national anthem,” Trump said.

“For people to disrespect that by kneeling during the playing of national anthem I think is disgraceful,” he said.

The president also denied that he was “preoccupied” with the NFL after being asked about the attention he gave the league over the weekend in which he tweeted about the protests several times.

“Not at all,” Trump said. “I have plenty of time on my hands. All I do is work.”

He also urged the NFL to create a rule that would “not allow people” to kneel during the playing of the national anthem.

Trump has spent the last four days railing against NFL players for protesting by kneeling during the national anthem.

On Friday, he called those who kneel "sons of bitches" and tweeted that NFL players who don't stand during the anthem should be "fired."

He continued to tweet about the issue throughout the weekend, prompting players or owners on nearly all of the teams to take action or issue statements against the president by Sunday's gameday. The president was still at it Tuesday morning.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/09/27/politics/donald-trump-puerto-rico-north-korea/index.html

You know a president is in trouble when he has to insist he's up to the job.

But stung by a worsening post hurricane crisis in Puerto Rico, an escalating North Korea nuclear showdown, the humiliating failure to repeal Obamacare and the stunning defeat of his favored candidate in Alabama's Republican primary, that moment has arrived for Donald Trump.


The President is being forced to deny that his Twitter blasts and culture war shots at NFL players protesting racial grievances show that he's too distracted to lead amid creating political storms.

"I've heard that before, about was I preoccupied? Not at all, not at all. I have plenty of time on my hands. All I do is work," said Trump, when asked at a Rose Garden news conference whether his feud with NFL players had caused him to take his eye off the ball over the fast worsening hurricane crisis in Puerto Rico.

Given the magnitude of issues he's facing, it was not surprising that Trump sometimes seemed to be flailing Tuesday, a day of upheaval that served as a microcosm of his turbulent eight months in power that has delighted his fans but rocked much of the rest of the nation and the world.

History shows that any hints of incompetence at a time of national security crisis can deal a devastating blow to a presidency. A sense that a White House is powerless, meanwhile, to control the political winds of Washington can be equally as damaging -- especially when a commander-in-chief is as polarizing as Trump.

But the President, while flashing characteristic defiance, also showed hints of political self-awareness suggesting he understands the gravity of his political plight as intense pressures bear down on his White House.

This White House, for all the loyalty of Trump's fervent political base, could soon find itself facing up to any of these realities if it allows the myriad crisis facing the President to spin any further out of control.

Noose Tightening Around Trump Family in Russia Probe, Top Democrat Warns

Even though President Donald Trump has calmed his firestorm of tweets about the investigation into alleged ties between Russia and his campaign—he hasn’t called it a “witch hunt” in weeks—top Democrats say that the noose is tightening around the Trump family, and that it is now crucial to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller so he can complete the investigation.

"As the noose starts to close around the White House and around the Trump family, a very different set of behaviors could emerge,” Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-Rhode Island) told Politicoon Tuesday. "It’s under those kinds of pressures that the special counsel needs to be able to continue its work.”

He was talking about two bipartisan bills introduced last week that could block Trump from firing Mueller. One bill would requires a review of any terimation by three federal judges, and the other would require top officials at the Department of Justice to go before a panel of judges to explain any decision to fire Mueller.

Do they print crap too? Do you read anything other than this forum? Where do you get your information and opinions from? That is the big unknown. I read a lot and from a lot of different sources all across the political spectrum. I can only assume you read nothing.

I can only assume that you never read anything since you refuse to tell us what it is.

I don't post opinions so much as I cut and paste links with facts. You do very little of that so we only have your opinion to go by.
