    I'll rephrase.

    What has "the BLOTUS and his supporters" 'emoted' instead of 'thinking it through'? I'm looking for examples.

    Are you denying that your BLOTUS consistently uses negative fearmongering terminology in order to inflame the emotions of his supporters?

    https://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/06/...f-them-ominous-from-donald-trumps-tongue.html

    Did your BLOTUS "think through" the ramifications of abandoning our allies in Syria?

    Did your BLOTUS "think through" the implications about LYING with respect to his ineffective "wall"?

    Did your BLOTUS "think through" the political impact of firing the FBI Director while he was investigating "the Russian thing"?

    Did your BLOTUS "think through" the damage he would cause to American farmers before he arbitrarily and capriciously imposed tariffs on China?

    Did your BLOTUS "think through" the harm he would cause by reneging in treaties?

    The list goes on and on and on...

    Yes. “Something bad is happening” is not 'fearmongering.' Many of the things Trump is trying to fix are seen as 'bad' by the people who elected him. That's why they elected him to change them. If anything, he's being redundant.

    I'm willing to assume so. Can you explain why our allies would not be able to pull out as quickly as we can?

    'LYING' about what? The idea that a wall is ineffective is incredibly disingenuous. Most of the worlds controlled borders are protected by some sort of barrier that would qualify by any reasonable definition as a wall.

    I'm guessing he thought the same thing I did- that the troubles associated with firing him were less than the troubles associated with keeping him on. He was obviously biased and not serving the interest of The People.

    Its funny, I know a lot of farmers where I live and they all still love Trump. Isn't it possible this 'damage' has been greatly exaggerated by a biased media?

    Renegotiating treaties that are screwing us is not harmful... not to us at least, which is what the president should be concerned with.

    Are you suggesting that I'm 'emoting'?

    It is patently obvious from your responses that you have never bothered to "think through" any of those issues so draw your own conclusion.

    Its seems more 'patently obvious' that you're stuck on the idea that establishment talking points arent refutable...

    I guess we'll just have to let future readers decide which for themselves.

    Why are right wingers (who always claim to be moral Christians) so criminally corrupt?

    I don’t know. But something tells me it has something to do with believing in the tooth fairy. Trump is popular because making stuff up just seems natural to them.
