The BBC gets it ...Trump 'encourages' Russia to attack non-paying Nato allies

It was the constant, insidious "but her emails" that helped bring Hillary Clinton down.

I do not know it they-the Repugs-have a single motto yet-but they will.

Trump 'encourages' Russia to attack non-paying Nato allies

New York Times wrote 3,562 articles about Clinton’s emails in 2015-16

Times now has 4 stories about Biden’s age on the front page while burying Trump’s outbursts

Cable TV suggests Biden’s age is a *bigger* prob than Trump’s indictments

Media, y’all haven’t learned a damn thing

1. Argumentum ad absurdum

Trump can't unilaterally pull out of NATO, but let's say he and Congress don't pay into it.

Trump has put on record that non-paying NATO nations should be susceptible to attack by Russia.

If the US is non-paying, doesn't that put us on the proverbial list? And should we expect NATO to come to our defense?

They assume they are safe as long as they let Russia have Europe.
The GOP is so naive and arrogant they assume no one can touch them.

They will apparently have to learn things the hard way.
And all of us will suffer.

I was pleasantly surprised when the local CBS station reported on Trump’s comments on the local news this morning. I quit watching the NBC affiliate in the morning because one of the anchors couldn’t help but show her right wing bias. The CBS station is much more neutral (as in unbiased reporting, not “centrist”). They report on Biden’s age (which certainly seems like the right’s only line of attack these days), but they also talk about Trump’s myriad trials and the crazy stuff he says. Still, this was given the gravitas it deserves. Even for a station I appreciate for not overtly playing to one side, this was a strong statement about how he crossed a line even magats will find difficult to defend.
