These actions by the Trump administration are going to go down in our history alongside the Japanese internment camps in WW2, and the myriad ways throughout our history that our country has viciously treated people of non-white skin. It is nothing less than infuriating.

I show up. I vote. I try to spread awareness and change minds with thoughtful engaged debate. I volunteer to help the needy. What else can I do?
Stockpile food, medicine, ammo.

That and on Friday, Manafort is probably getting his bail revoked, at which point I think the chances of him flipping go up exponentially. Both Manafort and Cohen know where the skeletons are buried.

There is also a theory out there that Cohen fired his attorneys because they wanted him to cut a deal and he wants to fight.

Or he can't afford them anymore because the RNC isn't giving him any more money for his legal bills since they got outed in January. From what I heard, he's like Trump. Not cash rich, but real estate paper rich, so his money is tied up in properties that he can't sell quickly or so far in debt to the banks for the properties, he can't do anything at all with them.

Default Most recent preposterous lie

Trump's claim that the parents of Korean War Vets asked him to bring the remains of their sons home during the 2016 campaign is hilarious.

Just another example of the pathological nature of his lying.

18yo who would have died in the last year of the Korean War would have been born in 1925 or so. That kid's parents would have been born in ~1907, making them ~111 yo now...

You are a bit off. The Korean War ended in 1953. So an 18 year old would have been born in 1935. The parents in, say, 1917.

101.

I think your math is off by 10 years (Korea didn't end in 1943), but that would still put the parents at around 101. He might have met with Vietnam vet parents, and seeing as Trump is not the best with "details", probably mixed the two up in his very good brain. On the other hand, he blamed Canada for burning the White House in the War of 1812, so he might not be aware that the Korean and Vietnam Wars were separate wars fought against separate countries. Maybe if he had actually gone to Vietnam he would be able to discern the difference.

Kneeling on football field unpatriotic. Saluting a North Korean general?
