    BAIER: Kim Jong Un is “clearly executing people.”

    TRUMP: “He’s a tough guy. Hey, when you take over a country, tough country, tough people, and you take it over from your father … if you could do that at 27-years old, I mean, that’s 1 in 10,000 that could do that.” (via FOX) pic.twitter.com/R8FfkREDYX

    I think the salute was a reflex. It looks like he went in for a hand shake and got caught up in an awkward “don’t know what to do with my hands” moment. He’s a total military wannabe though that seems to love autocracy. He seems to really want to be like Putin, the leader of Turkey, Franco, ect.

    Just making sure you aren't having selective outrage.

    New Zealand imposes tax on tourist because they put too much strain on infrastructure.

    "so wealthy tourist put too much strain on the country's resources, but the USA is supposed to take in millions of poor people, many don't speak the language, many don't have skills, but need housing & healthcare. Makes sense. It will be good for us."

    Just saw a commercial for stuffed bear with a red toupee called Trumpy Bear.

    The people buying that are truly followers.

    I hate it when people worship politicians.

    We were laughing at that a couple weeks ago. I’d have gotten one for my left-leaning sister as a joke but they’re damn expensive for $5 of fabric and fluff.

    The only thing Corker is mad about is that he is not interesting enough to have his own cult. Simply jealousy.

    Isn’t this why there’s high sales taxes in tourist areas? Granted the revenue isn’t exclusively for infrastructure, but it goes into the pot where all the dirty hands are.

    I think people are having a hard time grasping the notion that North Korea is functionally just a province of China, where nothing happens without first being run by Beijing. Does anyone wonder why it was such a huge deal that China agreed to put sanctions on Noko? Does anyone believe Trump and Xi didn’t talk through all of this during one of their dozen meetings in the first hundred days?
    Trump is trying to create seperation between N. Korea and China so he has to woo them over. He has to make them believe that we would be much better acquaintances than the Chinese. The North Koreans want to be done with the act, and Trump is trying to give them a way out, and diminish the power of the Chinese. This is all choreographed and you need to trust Pompeo’s guidance. Give it time, and you’ll see it all play out.....

    Which in the words of liberal lawyer Dershowitz a crime since he hasn't even been to trial or convicted of anything. This may taint the case against him.

    But again - not connection to Trump wrong doing.
