I see a link on FB from "the comical conservative". Title: "Watch Putin rip out earpiece and destroy NBC Airhead Megyn Kelly". So now we're supposed to be openly rooting for Putin? Goodbye conservatives of 2012 who thought that Russia was the greatest geopolitical foe of the US.

If you can resist what I'm sure is an overwhelming desire to scream FAKE NEWSSSSSS! and recoil at actual, you know, data, check out the dozens of polls that have been conducted internationally that show that across continents the US's status in the world has slipped drastically under Trump's "leadership". Then find me even one (outside of Russia) that shows that we are viewed more favorably with Dolt 45 at the wheel.
 
Here's a global poll just conducted by Wharton and USN&W:
 
"Among the 21,000 surveyed, 75% said they lost some respect for U.S. leadership after the 2016 presidential election."
 
While you're at it, here's something else you can try to discredit:

I'm not talking about what they think of us. Respect is entirely
different. It isn't a popularity contest.

I don't know why we want the good opinion of our competitors in
the global economy. It's not like the "good opinion of Obama" got
us anything.
 
The rest of the world is, alas, both admiring and envious of the
United States. Perhaps you think everyone admires the Patriots, or
admired the New York Yankees back when they dominated. The fans of
those teams don't give a rats ass whether they are liked -- they want
to be respected.

That would make sense, con, if y'all weren't working so hard to turn us into the Detroit Lions.
 
Hey, it's an outside the box solution to the "immigration problem", right?

I love how every TDS sufferer was an expert on middle eastern military installations.
 
Half the DNC must write for Janes.

Nope. I didn't know we had a base there.
 
But I'm not the commander in chief.
dotslashderek@gmail.com: Jun 09 05:13AM -0700

I like how pseudoconservatives who thought the idea that trump would even win the primary a year ago was laughable have nothing to offer but TDS and ButHillary.
 
Same as it ever were, I guess (hey to ButBush).
 
Cheers.

Please do not confuse the prediction with the belief that it will not come with a lot of help from the outside.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Solari said
