Well, almost anything the current administration is trying to change is naturally the fault of the previous administration.

Or it could be changing for the worse or changing to undo one's own fault.

I think China should be pleased with the US losing leverage in East Asia and the international venue. Trump's distaste for international trade agreement and attempts to make old allies and other smaller economies cave on bilateral trade disputes may open up more opportunities for China calling the shots.

Yeah Trump is full on disaster mode right now on the international scene, but it is not having an immediate impact, so his followers don’t know or care of the consequences.

Because I was writing it tongue-in-cheek as from the narrow perspective of any current administration.

As a rule, if it sounds too dumb or simple for anyone to believe, assume it's a joke.

I'm not watching that. I can't stand Oliver, and I'm not interested in anything Xi Jinping-related. And it's way too long.

Algren is concerned about his social score dropping if he is ever interested in commenting about Emperor Xi. :P

The stock market keeps going down and things are getting worse. If this trade war continues, the country will probably be a recession by next year. I have also noticed fruit prices are much higher than they have been in years past. I am guessing there isn't anyone to pick them.

Plenty of economists, but unfortunately too many ignorant people who voted for him didn't pay attention to them. I did see Drumpf caved on keeping children in cages. I imagine the optics became too bad and the democrats didn't blink and give him the wall funding.

Trump, a few days ago: "I hate this policy too but there's nothing I can do about it. It's a Democratic law!"

Supporters: "See? Stop blaming Trump. He can't solve it!"

Trump, today: "I am officially ending this policy, because it is in my power to do so."

Supporters: (crickets)

Not to mention he didn't even have to sign an executive order to do it. It's all a show. He's creating these problems only to blame Democrats and anyone else he can, and then comes in to "fix" the problem.

The person who wrote the executive order to get rid of the policy said the policy didn't exist two days ago.

BREAKING: "Trump signs executive order to end policy that separates families". :mer:

Seriously, though, the miscommunication in Trump's administration is baffling. They make everything so much worse, themselves.

Interesting take.

It’s encouraging that Sarah Huckabee Sanders was judged not by the color of her skin but by the content of her character.

I think the restaurant has the right to not serve Sanders, and she seemed to accept it. However I don't think this is as analogous to the gay wedding cake situation as some people are claiming right now. A key is that the baker was willing to otherwise serve gay people, but did not want to make a gay wedding cake. Making an anti gay marriage baker make a cake shaped like a dick, colored like a rainbow and saying congrats Matt and Steve for example, would be a lot harder for them to stomach than just feeding gay people chicken.

Of course they are different. Ruling elites is not a protected class in Virginia while sexual orientation is under the anti-discrimination law in Colorado.
