Trump “essentially” fired Mattis

In the same sense that I am “essentially” as sexy as George Clooney.

Related: Trump’s most unhinged comments of the day

From the comments section:

Actually the Orange Buffoon’s most unhinged remarks were in his little mini-seminar on the relationship of Russia, Afghanistan and the USSR.

“Russia used to be the Soviet Union. Afghanistan made it Russia, because they went bankrupt fighting in Afghanistan. Russia. … The reason Russia was in Afghanistan was because terrorists were going into Russia. They were right to be there. The problem is, it was a tough fight. And literally they went bankrupt; they went into being called Russia again, as opposed to the Soviet Union. You know, a lot of these places you’re reading about now are no longer part of Russia, because of Afghanistan”

Wow. Where do you start? As Kelly Bundy might say, “It wobbles the mind!”

      Good post. I consolidated your two posts into one.

      I see why you made two – because the first one didn’t show up.

      Here’s what happens: if a post contains a link, the anti-spam software automatically considers it a red flag, and places it in a queue for me to review. Since I’m not online 24/7, there is a lag between when you post and when I get to the queue. When I get there I typically put the link inside some text to make it look a little slicker, then approve it.

      Anyway, thanks for all you do.

  2. I wondered what happened. Much thanks. The man’s absolute ignorance is truly scary. I think I knew more geo and hist by the 8th grade than Trump knows now (and I haven’t stopped plowing through it either since then).
    All the stuff they said about Reagan being a dolt (he wasn’t) is actually true about the Orange Buffoon. Except you have to throw in a 1.5 multiplier in to make it accurate.
