UPDATE: The Washington Post just changed their lead headline this morning.

They dumped the shoddy phrasing suggests he'd disregard to this:
Trump SAYS he’d disregard NATO treaty, urge Russian attacks on U.S. allies
📌NOTE: THIS is what happens when we stay engaged, people."

After seeing the dreck from the NYT it's nice to see this little bit of improvement from WaPo at least.

him keep saying these threats and maybe people will realize this orange pus job is a sick MF'er. He is truly a threat to everyone. Again, we are the only ones to stop him. VOTE, VOTE, VOTE

"if you support Trump, don't talk to me again"

Pretty much the outright supporters don't talk to me anyway. I'm thinking about the ones who still have some thought that Biden would somehow be worse than Trump. Ugh.

Every time I read about his latest outrage, I want to lash out. My anger is directed toward my sister who is a trumpcultist. I can't stand that I can't stand my own little sis any more. I think I need counseling, before I lose my mind altogether.

someone posted on DU they are canceling subscription. This could change their minds to stop publishing
dis- information and mis-information.

their subscription for variety of reasons. A better tact, IMO, would be a letter to the paper expressing your disgruntlement, but still continueing paying for their reporters to be able to do their jobs.

I've been so disgusted with the NYT, ever since they were cheerleaders for the Iraq War.

The outpouring of support from the world, and then sending their own troops to help us in Afghanistan and Iraq (not that I approved of those wars). That's what allies do! They back each other up!

GOP front-runner said he would encourage Russia to ‘do whatever the hell they want’ to member countries he views as not spending enough on own defense.
