Maxine Waters slams trump for doing nothing while Putin invades Korea

I'm not sure whether the congresswoman was talking about the north or the south, there's been a news blackout on this

There is this quote in the article: "We live in a country where the truth matters."  He obviously recognizes that he is not in Kansas.

Then why did he lie in the first place? And self-praise is no praise. aka 'Haagse bluf'.

When in a hole, stop digging. So stupid, on several levels.

fake news from  CNN

Trump and Bolton have been discussing for weeks how he could replace McMaster. According to what a source familiar with those negotiations told me, Bolton promised Trump "he wouldn't start any wars" if he selected him as the new national security adviser.

Kaitlan Collins (CNN) on twitter

Not true. This wasn't discussed

You have to be more clear in your bombastic statement. Trump and Bolton did not discuss firing McMaster or they did not discuss Bolton’s starting a war?

lol, they discussed neither.
McMaster left in short order because he leaked that the president had been advised (by mcmaster) not to follow the lead of other western countries (including france, germany, japan, and israel but not the uk) and obama the last time round by congratulating putin on securing another term.
If mcmaster hadn't done that, mcmaster would still be NSA.

the new york times had to issue a correction:
“An earlier version of this article erroneously included a reference to Palestinian actions as an example of the sort of far-right conspiracy stories that have plagued Facebook. In fact, Palestinian officials have acknowledged providing payments to the families of Palestinians killed while carrying out attacks on Israelis or convicted of terrorist acts and imprisoned in Israel; that is not a conspiracy theory.”


they labelled a story about the palestinian authority paying terrorists and their families as a far-right conspiracy theory.
Too bad the story was true.
