  1. Whether you agree with the US pulling out or not, how do you feel about the way Trump did it - by tweet without consulting the Pentagon or any of our allies? Just a random tweet after speaking with Erdogan?

  3. And partisan. Even the Trump appointees side with the Dems and the Deep State. Apparently.
  4. Cowardly response Unless the president issues his own statement, it does seem weak. The man tweets about everything else but he, so far, can't issue a personal statement about this?
  5. The WH press secretary tweeted this statement, but nothing first hand from the president. Stephanie Grisham, the White House press secretary, tweeted Monday morning that the president “has not yet seen the video, he will see it shortly, but based upon everything he has heard, he strongly condemns this video.”
  6. Investigated and found to be "credible and urgent" by a Trump appointee. So partisan.
  7. Framing it as a "coup" is setting up his reasons to not leave office when he's voted out.
  8. "Idiot". Because was he really is would get us banned.
  9. From Forbes: Fox News announced Friday that Shepard Smith would be stepping down from his role as Chief News Anchor and Managing Editor of the network’s breaking news unit and anchor of Shepard Smith Reporting. Smith’s last time anchoring was today. Smith, in a statement, said he had asked Fox to be released from his contract. “Recently I asked the company to allow me to leave Fox News and begin a new chapter,” Smith said. “After requesting that I stay, they graciously obliged. The opportunities afforded this guy from small town Mississippi have been many. It’s been an honor and a privilege to report the news each day to our loyal audience in context and with perspective, without fear or favor. I’ve worked with the most talented, dedicated and focused professionals I know and I’m proud to have anchored their work each day — I will deeply miss them.” Seems abrupt.
  10. I'm old enough to remember when Trump followers complained when the Dems held public hearings, calling them "a circus". Now they complain when they're held in private? Make up your damn mind!
  11. Who listens to the call? Traditionally, officials from the US national security council (NSC) brief the president before a call with a foreign leader. Then the briefers sit in the Oval Office with the president while he speaks on the phone with the foreign leader. "At least two members of the NSC are usually present," according to USA Today. There will also be officials sitting in a secure room in another part of the White House, listening to the president's call and taking notes. Their notes are known as a "memorandum of telephone conversation", and like many things in Washington it has an abbreviation: "memcon". The president's calls with foreign leaders are also transcribed by computers. Afterwards, as former White House officials explain, the human note takers compare their impressions with an electronic version of the call. The notes from the officials and from the computerised transcriptions are combined into one document. This transcript may not be perfect, but it is done as carefully as time and resources allow. IIRC, up to 12 people listen in on all presidential calls with foreign leaders.
