Trump gave "a requiem for our (post WWII) alliances" -- STUNNING commentary on Nicole Wallace's..

... program today. If you missed the comments by Robert Costa and Nick Confessore, they are in the first 22 minutes, before the first commercial break. The entire hour was awfully good, but this just shook me.

They said what we've all been saying, that DT is horrible wherever he goes and whoever he's with. Right there at the graveyard he gave an interview with Laura Ingraham that was utterly inappropriate. Then he gave his prepared remarks, written by someone else, that could get a passing grade.

But look again. The US President did not talk about Europe, where all this carnage took place. He didn't call out our enduring alliances. He talked about America. America's "sovereignty."

Costa and Confessore said it did not sink to the level of some of his nakedly nationalistic and isolationist language, but it was very much there. It was "a requiem for our ... alliances."

1. Odd; the hot take this morning was about how presidential Trump was

He didn't drool or fall over, so maybe this is The Pivot, finally? As the day wears on (and they said it was The Longest Day in 1944!), it seems the initial spasm of support has faded badly.

2. People respond to visual images more quickly, with more emotion

than words. I think thatís part of it.

6. You mean Trump? He's hardly irrelevant, as he is our first wannabe dictator president...

...a complete authoritarian propped up by the most corrupt group ever to seize power in our nation's history as a republic.

4. Think about the knuckleheads

that are on in the morning on MSNBC. Then in the afternoon sanity begins to creep in and Nicole Wallace is the first in line. I presume Ali Velshi also showed some sanity. MSNBC is not watchable in the morning.

5. Yeah, Andrea Mitchell is such a bullshit liberal

Why is she even on? They were all so busy jacking off on Dump's "reset." I almost trashed my television.

10. She was really moved by the veteran she let discuss his D-DAY landing.....

I felt she was really shook with what he was saying.

11. I'd be overcome with emotion in that case, too

But respectfully, to give that orange fuck a reset today is too much to bear. He is foul. He dragged his entire family to Europe on our dime. And he's a ridiculous asshole.

7. It's all about "owning the libs".

We're respectful, they aren't. They try to find ways to push our buttons, we find ways to fight back. It is really that simple.

9. The latter part of her program included playing the taped voice mail. When asked what he heard...

...Butler said: "I heard a federal crime."

Smoking. Gun.
