"This is as close to general martial law as we ever have been and, I fear, not as close to it as we're likely to get"

Yes, again.

"The President Is a Coward."

That's what they like about him.
His supporters are cowards.

I Cannot Remain Silent (op-ed)
www.theatlantic.com

...It sickened me yesterday to see security personnel --including members of the National Guard --forcibly and violently clear a path through Lafayette Square to accommodate the president's visit outside St. John's Church. I have to date been reticent to speak out on issues surrounding President Trump's leadership, but we are at an inflection point, and the events of the past few weeks have made it impossible to remain silent.

Whatever Trump's goal in conducting his visit, he laid bare his disdain for the rights of peaceful protest in this country, gave succor to the leaders of other countries who take comfort in our domestic strife, and risked further politicizing the men and women of our armed forces.

There was little good in the stunt....

Calling Trump a coward seems to be an insult to cowards everywhere.

Commodore Bonespurs is a coward? Shocked, I say, shocked!

Trump is finally getting what he's always wanted, columns of military vehicles, rolling down the streets of Washington, DC.

How extraordinary, DR netizens!
We will be able to tell our grandchildren that we lived through the most disastrous presidency in our nation's history.

As evidenced by their faux victim complex whining while they took their balls and stormed off to Boaz's sausage house.

Future historians will be writing about the worst economic collapse in world history since the Black Death.
The riots are an outgrowth of a shrinking economic pie.
This is just the start of many more to come.

The $64,000 question has always been "What's wrong with Trump?"

True he's a coward but the answer is much more simple than that.

Trump is a Dictator.

Dictators don't fare well in a Democracy. (as we can see for ourselves)

One of them has to go ~~ which is a decision America will have to make on November 3rd.

If you are dumb enough to believe that, it explains why nothing gets fixed.
