The real meaning of the Trump slogan "America First"

Step 1. First, sellout America to foreign dictators.
Step 2. Tell Trump supporters that we are winning.
Step 3. Repeat steps 1 and 2.

Another Fox False Equivalency About A Bill Clinton & Tony Blair Conversation

Ah Tucker, it is clear that your parents spelled your name wrong on the birth certificate.

While Democrats have been calling for President Trump’s impeachment over his alleged soliciting of assistance from foreign countries ahead of the 2020 election, an unearthed comment from February 2000 might show stones were being thrown from glass houses.

On his show Monday, Tucker Carlson discussed a transcript of a call between former President Bill Clinton and then-U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair -- the same year as the election pitting Clinton's vice president, Al Gore, against George W. Bush -- during which the ex-president asked his British counterpart for a political favor.

“You’ve heard endlessly on cable news that it is unprecedented the president would seek political gain from a conversation with a foreign leader. Well, turns out, it has happened before,” Carlson said.

“Back in 2000, President Bill Clinton had a conversation with Tony Blair of the U.K. and asked him to intercede in a dispute between British Airways and two carriers. The president, at the time, was much more direct than President Trump was in his conversation.


You know Trump will go full dictator any minute

Like his authoritarian heroes in Russia, North Korea, Brazil, and the Philippines, Trump will increase his dictatorial ravings and try and declare Martial Law, dissolve Congress, and use the justice system to prosecute his political enemies. Critics falling accidentally out of windows, being shot by people in passing cars, and being jailed en masse will be just the beginning.

Right-wing splinter groups will fall in line to support him, the military will fracture, and we may just see a full out American Civil War again in this country. Sound ridiculous? Remember who we're dealing with here and the money and power behind the GOP, Trump's GOP. Trump has already raised $125 million for the 2020 campaign. That ain't a lot of people backing away from his insanity.
