Ellen DeGeneres explains to Megyn Kelly, and her audience, why she would NEVER have Donald Trump on her show.

Courtesy of Truth Examiner:

Ellen DeGeneres spoke with Megyn Kelly today about her new morning talk show on NBC. During the interview, DeGeneres asked Kelly if she would have Donald Trump on her show. “Definitely,” Kelly said. “I mean, I wouldn’t say no to the sitting president of the United States. Absolutely not. Would you?” Without missing a beat, DeGeneres swiftly said, “Yeah.” 

As the audience began cheering, Kelly seemed genuinely surprised by DeGeneres’s response. An awkward silence ensued until DeGeneres explained, “He is who he is. He has enough attention. He has his Twitter account and he has ways to get his message across. There’s nothing I’m going to say to him that’s gonna change him.”

I think that Kelly's response proves that once a Fox News bimbo, always a Fox News bimbo.

She spent years spewing Right Wing talking points and outright lying to her audience, while flashing her legs in short skirts to attract the mostly male demographic and cloud their primitive little lizard minds.

On the other hand Ellen DeGeneres is a host who actually grew an audience based on her intelligence, compassion, and talent.

Her explanation is a good reason for ALL talk shows, and cable news programs, to keep Donald Trump at arm's length.

By the way I would not watch Megyn Kelly's new show with a gun to my head. 

In escalating war of words leader of North Korea calls Donald Trump a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard.”

Courtesy of New York Times:  

Responding directly for the first time to President Trump’s threat at the United Nations to destroy nuclear-armed North Korea, its leader called Mr. Trump a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard” on Friday and vowed the “highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history.” 

The rejoinder by the leader, Kim Jong-un, who is about half as old as Mr. Trump, 71, added to the lexicon of Mr. Kim’s choice of insults in the escalating bombast between the two. 

“A frightened dog barks louder,” Mr. Kim said in a statement, referring to Mr. Trump’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday in which he vowed to annihilate North Korea if the United States were forced to defend itself or its allies against it. 

“He is surely a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire, rather than a politician,” Mr. Kim said.

Damn I hate to agree with a deranged North Korean lunatic, but that is a fairly accurate description.

Of course the problem is that we expect this sort of name calling and childishness from the life size Weeble dominating the people of North Korea, but now we have our own man-child egging him on by flinging his own preschool level epithets, like Rocket man, in Jong-un's direction.

And all of this might simply be good theater, if it did not potentially devastating real life consequences.

Courtesy of US News: 

Hawaiian officials are reportedly preparing for the possibility of a nuclear attack, and they're doing it quietly. 

The Honolulu Civil Beat reported earlier this week that Hawaii lawmakers attended a closed-door briefing Tuesday by emergency officials on the topic of such an attack from North Korea. Officials reportedly viewed slides on the potential fallout from a nuclear attack that included information on where an attack might target and the fatalities that could result.

That's right we now have American citizens now terrified of being decimated by a nuclear bomb.

Only nine short months ago there was no such fear.

And there are no signs that the rhetoric will come to an end any time soon.
In actuality Trump is simply increasing sanctions: 

President Trump ordered a widening of American sanctions on North Korea on Thursday to further choke off its trade with the outside world, in what some experts described as perhaps the most sweeping set of punitive economic measures enacted by the United States in many years. 

A new executive order signed by Mr. Trump aimed to cut North Korea out of the international banking system while targeting its major industries and shipping. The move suggested that for now, at least, the president was still committed to applying economic pressure rather than military action, despite his vow this week to “totally destroy North Korea” if the United States were forced to defend itself or its allies.

That may have some effect if others were not trying to remove themselves from the line of fire if this thing escalates any further.

Courtesy of CNBC: 

South Korea on Thursday approved $8 million worth of humanitarian aid for Pyongyang in a move likely to muddle international efforts aimed at isolating the nuclear-armed state. 

The package will include $4.5 million in nutritional products for children and pregnant women through the World Food Program in addition to $3.5 million worth of vaccines and medicinal treatments via UNICEF. The timing of the delivery has yet to be confirmed.

The news indicates South Korean President Moon Jae-In isn't backing down from direct engagement with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un even as other major players in the long-simmering crisis push for a tougher approach.

Yeah, that is because South Korea realizes that the minute somebody decides to call the other's bluff it is their asses which get fried first.

There is a reason that voters are supposed to choose the most sober, experienced, and mentally stable candidate to the President of the United States.

John McCain has killed another Trumpcare bill.

Courtesy of the New York Times:

Senator John McCain of Arizona announced on Friday that he would oppose the latest proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act, leaving Republican leaders with little hope of succeeding in their last-ditch attempt to dismantle the health law.

Mr. McCain, who killed the previous repeal effort with his dramatic “no” vote in July, released a statement saying he would not support the latest proposal, by Senators Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who is Mr. McCain’s closest friend in the Senate. 

“I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal,” Mr. McCain said. “I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried. Nor could I support it without knowing how much it will cost, how it will affect insurance premiums, and how many people will be helped or hurt by it.”

With McCain out this deal is dead, because I am convinced that both Senator Murkowski and Collins will also likely vote no on this bill. And right now the Republicans cannot afford to lose even one of them.

I imagine this was hard for McCain since his bestest buddy in the whole world, Lindsey Graham, put his name on this, but the man has brain cancer so how COULD he in good conscience have voted any other way?

Somebody in another thread asked if this meant we had to forgive John McCain for Sarah Palin, and the answer to that is no, no we do not.

What John McCain has done may seem admirable, but seriously it is the bare minimum that people should expect from their representatives.

Sarah Palin is a plague on this nation which keeps on giving, and there is NO undoing that.

Sarah Palin talking up Alabama Senate candidate: "Judge Roy Moore was deplorable before it was cool to be deplorable."

Courtesy of Raw Story:

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin campaigned for former Judge Roy Moore at a wall-less barn in Alabama Thursday evening. 

“Judge Roy Moore was deplorable before it was cool to be deplorable!” Palin said of the insurgent Republican who was twice suspended as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.


“I don’t think there’s a cooler nickname than ‘The 10 Commandments Judge,'” Palin noted, referencing the 2003 controversy that resulted in Moore being removed from office by the Alabama Court of the Judiciary. Moore was suspended as Chief Judge in 2016 and resigned in April while announcing he would be running in the special election. 

“We voted for a big beautiful wall and not more amnesty deals,” Palin said. 

And then there was this tortured logic.

“A vote for Judge Moore isn’t a vote against the president,” Palin claimed. “It is a vote for the people’s agenda that elected the president.

That is kind of a hard case to make with Trump scheduled to come to Alabama on Saturday and stump for Moore's opponent Luther Strange. 

My favorite part of this speech, and trust me it had no competition, was when Palin claimed that she "put her reputation on the line" to endorse Trump and support his policies.

Please, this woman, with help from her family, destroyed any positive reputation she may have had LONG ago.

It appears during this speech that Palin's argument is that Donald Trump has essentially been rendered impotent by "the swamp" and that the only way to preserve his vision is to go around him and elect candidates which he will not support in order to force him back into line.

That is a rather amazing development, as it seems the people who were the most energized by Trump's craziest campaign promises are simply incapable of believing they were played for fools or that after becoming president Trump learned that those things were impossible or ultimately hurtful to the country.

I think this is a glimpse into the insanity that Sarah Palin would have brought to the White House if by some batshit crazy miracle SHE had been elected president.

There's a thought to inspire nightmares.

Kremlin goes all in on with attempt to discredit actor Morgan Freeman.

Courtesy of BBC: 

Russia has aimed its entire media arsenal at the veteran Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman over his appearance in a video accusing the Kremlin of waging "war" on America during last year's presidential election. 

The video shows the Oscar winner accusing President Vladimir Putin, a "former KGB spy", of launching cyber attacks and spreading false information in order to avenge the collapse of the Soviet Union. 

He urges President Donald Trump to tell the nation that "during this past election, we came under attack by the Russian government". 

The clip was produced by The Committee to Investigate Russia, a group set up by Hollywood director Rob Reiner to expose what it calls Russia's "aggressive effort to subvert the American democratic process". 

The committee includes former National Intelligence Agency director James Clapper on its advisory board.

The Russian media claims that Morgan was "duped" and compared him to Colin Powell who famously made the case to attack Iraq based on fake and inadequate data.

Clearly that is not the case with Mr. Freeman, who seems to be well informed as to what Russia did during the 2016 election, and whose opinion falls right in line with the folks currently investigating the Kremlin's interference.

Also keep in mind who else the Russians tried desperately to smear.



For those who forgot what all of the hoopla was about here is that Morgan Freeman video again.

By the way, the group that made this video, Committee to Investigate Russia, is in no way stopping with just this one video. And you can ascertain that for yourself simply by visiting their website.

Sean Spicer kept copious notes?

Courtesy of Axios:  

When Spicer worked at the RNC, he was said to have filled black books emblazoned with the party's seal. Spicer was so well-known for his copious notes that underlings joked about him writing a tell-all. 

One source familiar with the matter said that the records were just to help him do his job. 

"Sean documented everything," the source said. 

That surprised some officials of previous White Houses, who said that because of past investigations, they intentionally took as few notes as possible when they worked in the West Wing. 

When we texted Spicer for comment on his note-taking practices, he replied: "Mike, please stop texting/emailing me unsolicited anymore." 

When I replied with a "?" (I have known Spicer and his wife for more than a dozen years), he answered: "Not sure what that means. From a legal standpoint I want to be clear: Do not email or text me again. Should you do again I will report to the appropriate authorities."

Well that's an awfully defensive response.

Kind of makes one think that Spicer has already been legally required to hand those notebooks over, and is not allowed to discuss it.

Yes in case you are wondering Spicer is indeed one of the people identified as on Mueller's list of folks he wants to interview.

One White House official said that people are going to wish they had been much nicer to Sean Spicer because he was at a whole lot of meetings.

Methinks that Donald Trump might be one of those who will regret how he treated Spicer.

During 2016 election the Russians apparently used Facebook to try and set up pro-Trump rallies in 17 Florida cities.

Courtesy of the Daily Beast:  

Suspected Russia propagandists on Facebook tried to organize more than a dozen pro-Trump rallies in Florida during last year’s election, The Daily Beast has learned. 

The demonstrations—at least one of which was promoted online by local pro-Trump activists— brought dozens of supporters together in real life. They appear to be the first case of Russian provocateurs successfully mobilizing Americans over Facebook in direct support of Donald Trump. 

The Aug. 20, 2016, events were collectively called “Florida Goes Trump!” and they were billed as a “patriotic state-wide flash mob,” unfolding simultaneously in 17 different cities and towns in the battleground state. It’s difficult to determine how many of those locations actually witnessed any turnout, in part because Facebook’s recent deletion of hundreds of Russian accounts hid much of the evidence. But videos and photos from two of the locations—Fort Lauderdale and Coral Springs—were reposted to a Facebook page run by the local Trump campaign chair, where they remain to this day.

It seems like almost everyday we are learning just how involved Facebook was in helping Russian operatives hijack this election. 

I have a feeling that we are still only seeing the tip of the iceberg.

Sarah Palin on her way to defying Donald Trump. Update!

So Palin and Wills are on their way to, and at this point have probably arrived in, Alabama where Palin and Sebastion Gorka, will stump for Judge Roy "Hang'em high" Moore.

(Apparently the SuperPAC "Great American Alliance" is footing the bill. Cause you know Palin does not go ANYWHERE on her own dime.)

However as we have pointed out before Palin's support is for a candidate that is challenging the candidate supported by her old boyfriend Donald Trump.

Donald Trump is scheduled to arrive in Alabama on Saturday to make his pitch for Luther Strange, however Roy Moore is currently leading Luther Strange in the polls by a comfortable margin.

Which means that Trump could end up with egg on this face and another embarrassing defeat that will surely not sit well with him, and that could mean a certain Wasilla Wendigo may find herself on the pointy end of one or more of Trump's early morning Twitter rants.

Popcorn?

Update: Here is a little of what Roy Moore said during tonight's debate:  

Controversial former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore warned that America was falling apart because of things like transgender troops in the military. 

“Our foundation has been shaken. Crime, corruption, immorality, abortion, sodomy, sexual perversion sweep our land. When we become one nation under God again, when liberty and justice for all reigns across our land, we will be truly good again,” he said in his first and only one-on-one debate against appointed Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL). 

The comments came shortly after he said he wanted to free the country and military from “political correctness and social experimentation like transgender troops in our bathrooms.”

Well I think that helps to explain why the newly minted Internet-Evangelist Sarah Palin is backing this guy.

Twitter to testify before the Senate concerning their role in the Russian interference during the 2016 election cycle.

Courtesy of The Hill: 

Representatives from Twitter will meet with staff from the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence next week in connection with the panel's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. 

The social media company says that it will address fake bot accounts as well as the dissemination of hoax stories and false news on its platform with committee staffers. 

“We are cooperating with the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in its inquiry into the 2016 election and will meet with committee staff next week,” a Twitter spokesperson told The Hill on Thursday. “Twitter deeply respects the integrity of the election process, a cornerstone of all democracies, and will continue to strengthen our platform against bots and other forms of manipulation that violate our Terms of Service.” 

Senate investigators are expanding their probe into Russia's use of social media to influence Americans during the election.

I have been waiting for Twitter to be called to testify about their part in helping to steal this election.

I think they are at least as complicit as Facebook in what happened, and I am sure they have a lot of valuable information to share with investigators.

If they really wanted to demonstrate their patriotism they would close Donald Trump's account.

Barack Obama slams Republicans for trying to once again repeal Obamacare. Update!

Courtesy of Yahoo News:  

Former President Barack Obama mocked Republicans in a speech on Wednesday for repeated efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, his signature health care law also known as Obamacare. 

“The legislation that we passed was full of things that still needed to be fixed,” Obama said at an event hosted by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in New York City.

“It wasn’t perfect, but it was better,” he continued. “And when I see people trying to undo that progress for the 50th or 60th time with bills that would raise costs or reduce coverage or roll back protections for older Americans or people with preexisting conditions — the cancer survivor, the expecting mom or the child with autism or asthma, for whom coverage would once again be unattainable — it is aggravating.”

“All of this being done without any demonstrable economic or actuarial or plain common sense rationale, it frustrates,” Obama said. “It’s certainly frustrating to have to mobilize every couple of months to keep our leaders from inflicting real human suffering on our constituents.” 

Obama said Wednesday that the people who worked on drafting the Affordable Care Act weren’t just politicians and “policy wonks” but parents “who had the experience of a sick child or crushing medical bills that threatened to bankrupt them.” 

“And for the first time, more than 90 percent of Americans know the security of health insurance,” he said. “Paying more for insurance or being denied insurance because of a preexisting condition or because you are a woman, that’s not a thing anymore. We got rid of that and people are alive today because of it, and that’s progress.”

“Those of you who live in countries that already have universal health care are trying to figure out what’s the controversy here,” he said. “I am too.”

I think that these are the strongest statements that Obama has made on this topic so far, but I hope they are only the beginning because I think he really needs to fight to protect the progress he made while in office, or it will be erased for good.

The good news for him is the the Left has been mobilized: 

The liberal activists roused into the streets by President Donald Trump are revving up for one last campaign to save Obamacare. 

The sudden resurgence of Republicans’ repeal push appeared to catch Democrats and their base by surprise. But ahead of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s plans to vote next week on a new bill to dismantle the health law, the Democratic grass roots is on what one leading activist called “full war footing.”

From a new six-figure advertising campaign by the pro-Obamacare group Save My Care to a flurry of rallies planned on the ground, the left is throwing everything it can at the new repeal bill from Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

 "The reality is that the progressive coalition has never been more unified or determined than they are right now,” Organizing for Action spokesman Jesse Lehrich said in an interview.

Well that is good news indeed.

If you yourself have not yet joined the fight then please try to find local groups to join, or at the very least send those emails and make those phone calls to Senators, both Republican and Democrat, and tell them how important Obamacare is to you and your family.

Somebody the other day mentioned that they did not think phone calls worked, but the reports from the Senate are that they are currently overwhelmed with calls, and Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins both mentioned that phone calls and emails from their constituents helped to shape their votes last time around.

So yes, your voice does make a difference.

Update: It appears the Republicans are working hard to buy Lisa Murkowski's vote:

A Republican Senate aide told Independent Journal Review Thursday that Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.) are attempting to buy Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski's support through new changes to their controversial Obamacare repeal proposal before an expected vote next week. 

According to the aide, here is a summary of what the new draft of the bill entails: 

"This draft includes 3 separate provisions benefitting Alaska.
  1. Alaska (along with Hawaii) will continue to receive Obamacare’s premium tax credits while they are repealed for all other states. It appears this exemption will not affect Alaska receiving its state allotment under the new block grant in addition to the premium tax credits. 
  2. Delays implementation of the Medicaid per capita caps for Alaska and Hawaii for years in which the policy would reduce their funding below what they would have received in 2020 plus CPI-M [Consumer Price Index for Medical Care].
  3.  Provides for an increased federal Medicaid matching rate (FMAP) for both Alaska and Hawaii." 
This is repugnant as it would have Alaska receive special treatment while other states do without.

The ACA was set up to benefit ALL Americans not simply those living in blue states, Murkowski cannot think this is a good idea.

Alaskans are known for their generosity, to do this would be undermine our very identity.

Former Trump campaign manager offered private briefings to a Russian billionaire with ties to the Kremlin.

Hello Russia? I'm in.
Courtesy of WaPo: 

Less than two weeks before Donald Trump accepted the Republican presidential nomination, his campaign chairman offered to provide briefings on the race to a Russian billionaire closely aligned with the Kremlin, according to people familiar with the discussions. 

Paul Manafort made the offer in an email to an overseas intermediary, asking that a message be sent to Oleg Deripaska, an aluminum magnate with whom Manafort had done business in the past, these people said. 

“If he needs private briefings we can accommodate,” Manafort wrote in the July 7, 2016, email, portions of which were read to The Washington Post along with other Manafort correspondence from that time. 

The emails are among tens of thousands of documents that have been turned over to congressional investigators and special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s team as they probe whether Trump associates coordinated with Russia as part of Moscow’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. election.

There is no evidence that this billionaire took Manafort up on his offer, but then again there is no evidence that he didn't.

And while you are processing that, there is also this.

Courtesy of Politico 

Former Donald Trump aide Paul Manafort used his presidential campaign email account to correspond with a Ukrainian political operative with suspected Russian ties, according to people familiar with the correspondence. 

Manafort sent emails to seek repayment for previous work he did in Ukraine and to discuss potential new opportunities in the country, even as he chaired Trump’s presidential campaign, these people said. 

Manafort had been a longtime consultant for Viktor Yanukovych, the Ukrainian president until 2014, and his Party of Regions. During the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, Ukrainian investigators said they had discovered evidence that Manafort received millions of dollars in off-the-books payments for his work there. 

In the emails to Konstantin Kilimnik, a Manafort protégé who has previously been reported to have suspected ties to Russian intelligence, the longtime GOP operative made clear his significant sway in Trump’s campaign, one of the people familiar with the communications said. He and Kilimnik also met in the United States while Manafort worked for the Trump campaign, which he chaired until an August 2016 shake-up.

I think it is pretty clear that Manafort was certainly not representing American interests while working on the Trump campaign.

I don't know if there is quite enough evidence to claim that Manafort was a Russian spy, but it is pretty easy to see why Robert Mueller had his home invaded using a no knock subpoena. 

Hillary Clinton's book is now a number one bestseller.

Courtesy of CNBC: 

Last week, Hillary Clinton released her new book, "What Happened," a first-person tell-all that documents her surprising loss to Donald J. Trump in the 2016 presidential election. 

Now the book is ranked No. 1. on Amazon's Best Sellers list. 

It's beating out New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady's "The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance," which comes in at No. 2, as well as two novels from 1986: Margaret Atwood's dystopian classic, "The Handmaid's Tale," and Stephen King's horror classic, "It: A Novel."

The book has already sold more than 300,000 copies, and is still going strong.

I am less than halfway through the book but so far I have found it to be the most authentic and unguarded book from Hillary Clinton that I have every read.

At times Hillary is almost plaintive in her attempts to understand what it about her which inspires so much hatred.

She points out that her political ideology is right in step with her husband's, with Joe Biden's, with President Obama's, and even with Bernie Sanders who she voted in synch with 93% of the time.

And yet the hatred directed at her was substantially more intense than that faced by most of her colleagues. (With the possible exception of Obama, and we all know why that was the case.)

Very early in the book Hillary addresses her mistakes, though some reviewers have suggested that she only focuses on others. After that she really seems to be attempting to examine as dispassionately as possible all of the other factors which helped determine the outcome of  the election.

Some of that focus is definitely concerning the deeply entrenched sexism which is still a big part of the political DNA in America.

As a man I recognized the accuracy of some of Hillary's observations, but I really feel that women are going to understand it in a more fundamental way than I ever could.

I am not yet sure if I will ultimately find this book cathartic, because right now it is still just ripping off scabs, both hers and mine.

However if you have not yet purchased the book I do recommend it, especially for those people who still deeply dislike Hillary or think she was a "flawed candidate."  For THAT audience I think this book may serve as a revelation. (And yes I recognize that most of them would never even consider reading it.)

Speaking of sexism and hatred, the other book mentioned in the CNBC article was Katy Tur's book "Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History," which is currently number one in Amazon's Humor and Entertainment category.

I have not yet purchased that book, but it is on my list. 

The good news is that the Russians do not seem to be doing much to alter the outcome of the German election. The bad news is that the American Right Wing seems to be taking up the slack.

Courtesy of USA Today:

An alliance of mostly anonymous online trolls and extremist agitators are meddling in Germany's election, but researchers say Russians aren’t to blame. 

Instead, they say, right-wing groups in the United States are behind materials popping up on YouTube, messaging board sites like 4chan and reddit and texting service Gab.ai. 

The evidence comes less than a week before Sunday's vote that is likely to hand German Chancellor Angela Merkel a fourth term. 

"So far we have not been able to track down any specific Russian activity," said Simon Hegelich," a professor of political science data at the Technical University of Munich who has advised the German government about the threat of hacking and false information. 

"A lot of the stuff we are seeing in Germany can be linked to, or is at least inspired by, the 'alt-right' movement in the U.S.," Hegelich said, referring to a loosely defined group whose far-right ideology includes racism and white nationalism. 

Many denigrate both leading candidates — Merkel and her conservative Christian Democratic Union party, and her chief rival, Martin Schulz of the left-of-center Social Democratic Party — with the hashtags #Merkel and #Schulz. 

And many of those posts originate in the U.S., adding to the impression that right-wing social media users in both countries may be trying to sway German public opinion. It's possible that some of this alt-right messaging coming out of the U.S. may be connected to Russian interference; that, too, is difficult to determine, Hegelich said. 

Really the take away from this is that it is now almost impossible to differentiate between Russian and Right Wing trolls.

I think that explains why despite the investigations into Russian collusion, Donald Trump is not losing much support from this particular demographic. 

So this happened yesterday. Melania Trump spoke out against bullying at UN luncheon. No, really.

Courtesy of Politico:  

First lady Melania Trump on Wednesday called on the international community to better protect and support children, speaking out against bullying and calling parents and leaders around the world to “come together for the good of our children because through them, our future will be defined.” 

"No child should ever feel hungry, stalked, frightened, terrorized, bullied, isolated or afraid, with nowhere to turn," the first lady said at a luncheon hosted at the U.S. mission to the United Nations. "We need to step up, come together, and ensure that our children's future is bright."

Just my luck to finally get my irony meter out of the shop only to have it see this and explode in my hands again.

Keep in mind that this is only one day after her husband referred to the leader of North Korea as "Rocket Man" and threatened to "totally destroy" the entire country.

Donald Trump's entire presidency is founded on his bullying tactics, and here this Slovenian mail order bride is suggesting that the rest of the world needs to start treating people better. 

Sheesh!
