Trump's body language has always been a very strong indicator of what he's thinking. Look at him when he makes his threats. Arms crossed almost too tightly to be comfortable, his eyes are going all over the place trying to lock in on someone. As far as I can tell, this is the first time since he took office that he's shown himself to be legit scared.


Well, yeah.
His golf courses will suffer if they get nuked.

I so want this to be true because it's hilarious.
I've heard this rumor and given Trump's constant assertion of how great he is, I'd be surprised if it was false.

So get this: I have no problem with Trump's warning against North Korea. Indeed I think it's about time someone threw the little dictator's violent rhetoric back at him. I don't think there's any real threat of nuclear war because I don't think Kim would be willing to lose everything over a pissing contest and I think he knows he won't win a war with us, and I seriously doubt Trump's threat changed anything. I think Trump showed some balls which is one of the first commendable things he's done in his presidency.

And those who say they fear the president might strike first, I personally find the prospect of Kim striking first much more frightening.

Given that North Korea is only furthering its arsenal, it would probably indeed be better if the USA set the timing of any hypothetical war.

Yeah, but if he believes Trump will attack (and I for one believe it) he may just attack anyone in a 'do as much damage as I can before they kill me' move.

do you want ants a dictator?  because that's how you get ants a dictator.

I am not super-familiar with constitutional law surrounding elections.  Is there any mechanism by which this can be done legally?

Eh...its an iffy poll with a low sample size and pool.


I'd wager the actual number is much lower.  Maybe 10-20% of republicans.  Still enough to take over the country

oh, for sure.  none of the republicans i know would support a delayed election, so it's tough for me to buy the 50% figure.  plus there's a zero percent chance that establishment republicans would ever back such a thing.

lol but that won't stop me from being smug.

Trump is literally pissing off a Nuclear nation while on vacation.  Where this Obama, Fox would be bitching about how Obama is taking a vacation while such a crisis exists.

And his own senate.

"Mitch, get back to work and put Repeal & Replace, Tax Reform & Cuts and a great Infrastructure Bill on my desk for signing. You can do it!" Said the president on Vacation.

Also, blaming the senate when he claims to be the great deal maker is like a master baker blaming his assistant for not having a good cake made.

Well sure, Fox gonna Fox. It's not like there's any expectation of objectivity from them; they're a propaganda machine, not a legitimate news channel.
