The Morning Rant

"So with Trump meeting with Whoa! Fat in Singapore, I'm being buried in an avalanche of whataboutism. That is, Trump haters on both sides of the aisle are squealing about how conservatives would be flipping out if Obama sat down with Kim. But this is one of those "all things being equal" false equivalencies. Because things are definitely not equal here. Trump has lots of experience negotiating deals; in fact, he actually wrote a book on the subject. Obama, on the other hand, was a feckless incompetent. Obama's idea of a deal was to suck up to the Iranian mullahs and give them truckloads of cash with which they could use to ramp up their military capacity and nuclear research. Also don't forget the Bowe Bergdahl fiasco where we gave up five big-league terrorists for one traitorous scumbag. In what universe is that a good deal? Trump, however, is negotiating from a position of strength: he's giving Li'l Kim reasonable alternatives after threatening to blow him up. There's an iron first in that velvet glove. The only contents of Obama's glove was a limp wrist and a sweaty palm."

"Hmmm... No wonder Hillary had to be
tossed into the back of that van like a sack
of potting soil. She was probably tanked."
