    Some discussion on the fact that it's played outdoors and he's indoors so can ignore it - not really sure on the protocol, maybe military vets here could explain. It seems some audience stand and react to "Retreat", regardless for somebody who champions himself as the great defender of the flag and showing respect for it it seems a little gauche to be joking that the bugle is being played for him or celebrating Hannity's ratings.

    This is what Fascism looks like. Mandatory allegiance to the state flag and now trump wants to shut down media critical of the state. This is textbook fascism after the false promises are jettisoned. Now we talk about tax cuts for the rich, a healthcare plan that is really massive tax cut for the rich, the degradation of government oversight of business...no EPA, unenforced regulations and disposal of constitutional checks and balances.

    Fascism starts on the Left as Socialism bc that is what the people want--a better deal than what they have. Once the putative leader becomes the actual leader with political power, the socialist promises are jettisoned in a hard 180 to right wing fanaticism.

    Take that concept and apply it to Capital and you have Monetary Fascism, which is the operative politic in the USA for decades.

    Monetary Fascism: "a system where financial interests control the State for the advancement of the financial class. This is markedly different from traditional Fascism: a system where State and industry work together for the advancement of the State."

    I used to think fox should have been required to take "news" out of their name, because it was misleading. Not because I want to restrict the press... The press has drastically changed right along with the market; when entities get too powerful they control the narrative, instead of react to it.

    CNN and msnbc have been bashing Trump even worse than Fox bashed Obama. It's not healthy, and it's not news. It's narrative.

    He's touching that flag like he's groping a woman in that gif.

    It is news when the sitting president says that "we can't stay in Puerto Rico forever" and tosses paper towels to people affected by a disaster like he is tossing candy bars out to african children who haven't eaten in a week.

    It is absolutely news when a current president acts like a child and is completely ignorant of every issue being faced right now. It is absolutely news and CNN is doing a wonderful job reporting on it

    Until they have stories pulled because they didn't vet the information.

    He speaks plainly. Probably too much so. I'm the rare not huge Trump fan, who also doesn't hate him. The movement was good, but the media painted it as racist because they hated the resistance to their agenda.

    We can't stay in Puerto Rico forever. We have SOME dominion over them, but they are still their own country, and have to wear their "we are our own country" big boy pants. It really is reality. Were you thinking we had to do everything for them? I'll agree, Trump should be more tactful when speaking the truth..

    Nobody said we have to do everything for them. They are on an island. What happens when an Island gets wiped out? Someone from somewhere else has to bring supplies in. I'm sure we are helping out a ton over there as we should but the rhetoric from Trump is just so juvenile and petty it's getting old quick. Why does he constantly talk shit about our allies and friends but won't say a think bad about Putin? Pee Tape?

    They're American citizens you fuck. They deserve all the help we can possibly offer.

    If we can afford countless dollars and American lives with un-winnable wars in the middle east for ungodly amount of time, then shame on you if you don't think we shouldn't give unlimited help to Puerto Rico.

    I believe Trump spent years at a military academy as a young man so it’s hard to believe he didn’t know what was happening.

    I thought CNN only did the crowd planting.

    Funny the same people that circle jerk in the CNN threads will be noticeably absent from criticizing Hannity for the same thing.

    BTW news has went from reporting the news to manipulating it. We are fucked as a country.

    Explain how Puerto Rico is its own country even though it is part of the United States.

    If he's so upset with how Puerto Rico is handling the aftermath of this hurricane, maybe their President should resign.
