You don't get satire? Sometimes people need to learn to laugh at themselves. Maybe you progressive liberals should try it. Don't take yourself so serious.
Oh, i get the satire, just thought it odd that you would post something so satirically anti-trump. Admit it, you miss obama don't you? :lol:

It isn't anti-Trump. It's a joke. I acknowledge the guy isn't perfect. Unlike Obama and Clinton sychophants.

WOW, and you think I have a problem spotting satire? A survey based on one demographic? Read that article again, it is as satirically anti-trump as anything from late night tv comedians. Although it did make me chuckle considerably more! Good find!

You continue to prove you do not understand satire. Hahahahah!

Satire and irony are usually most appreciated by the intelligent among us. Babylon Bee makes fun of dems, republicans, Christians, Baptists etc. It's all in fun unless you are just a hater that has to glob onto anything that promotes one's hate filled agenda.

European leaders think maybe they need to rely less on the US for their defense.

About time. I hope another American does not die defending Europe.

Trump Signals Consequences for Michael Cohen Over Secret Recording early Saturday morning (before golf of course) Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter. “Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client — totally unheard of & perhaps illegal. The good news is that your favorite President did nothing wrong!”

I get that trump doesn't understand the law, even when it comes to taping another person, after all, why would anyone tape trump? His story never changes, right? The most confusing part of the tweet for me was why would trump be concerned about my favorite president? I mean, Harry Truman passed away years ago?! (For those in doubt, that's satire ;-) )

I do not believe any American has sacrificed themselves to defend a foreign country... rather I think such sacrifice was made by Americans on foreign soil to insure that those wars were not fought at home causing extra hazard for Americans. The choice is whether to engage the enemy at a distance, or wait until they bomb your ports as they did on December 7, 1941, or on 9/11.... isolationism is a poor form of defense that has never proven effective over the long term.

President of Iran threatened the US with the mother of all wars.

Trump responded like only Trump can. Iran probably won’t say things like that again.

Trump is not Carter or Obama.

“NEVER EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKE OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE,”

Trump’s tweet in all caps.

Doncha just love the MSM. Trump's statement called, "a threat," Bolton called, " hawkish" (twice), Pompeo's statement called, "a rhetorical assault," but Hassan Rouhani was only "cautioning" by saying: "War with Iran is the mother of all wars."

The media's bias is totally out of control.

I get a kick out of the MSM, using the term "dog whistle" whenever Trump gives a speech, or makes a comment about something. I got to thinking maybe they're right, but not for the reasons they think. To me it's more like Pavlov's dogs, everytime Trump speaks, the left foam at the mouth. :mad5

While I would hope that no American would have to die to defend Europe again, relying on the Europeans to defend themselves without us there is a big mistake (not my opinion, I listened to Victor Davis Hansen discussing this issue, will try to find the video if anyone is interested). He believes that WW II in Europe would have never happened if the US had remained in Europe after WW I. He also believes that things could have been nipped in the bud very soon after Germany began their actions if we had sent troops over very early (when France and England got involved). Who knows but I am opposed to the US getting out completely. I do think the rest of NATO does need to pony up their fair share.

If I remember my history wasn't it the Europeans among others (Japanese) killing us? Germany and Italy were not our friends. Russia was our friend. So many Americans did fight and die defending what is now our allies and they are of questionable value to us right now. Germany, the great killer, now not paying their share for defense and becoming beholden to Russia for energy. Russia has threatened to cut off the pipeline to others in the past. Just wait for a cold winter and see what happens if Germany is on the wrong side of Russia.
