The biggest unifier
Is war. Unless it's the biggest divider.

A little while ago Trump tweeted:

Quote:Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump Jan 15

For many years our country has been divided, angry and untrusting. Many say it will never change, the hatred is too deep. IT WILL CHANGE!!!!

Add in the seething remarks about eliminating all of Isis......

Is he planning the biggest world war yet?

The Liar In Chief really has no idea what he's doing.

A pathological narcissist with the nuclear football within reach? What could possibly go wrong?

One can only hope that some of his inner circle will keep Cheeto-boy reined in. Alas, given that many of them are Russian sycophants, I'm not hopeful.

He is a malignant narcissist. That describes a narcissist with the need to go after everyone and everything he perceives as dissing him or devaluing him.

Plain narcissists are annoying but not dangerous. Malignant narcissists are dangerous under the best of circumstances.

His twitter feed is chuck full of examples of his malignancy...

RE: The biggest unifier
War is a big money maker for the ultra wealthy

War would provide jobs for the thousands of people he promised to 'help'

War is an excellent tool for propaganda

These are all 'positives' for him to start a war. I am not hopeful.

Generally this is true but I think in this case it might not hold.

The vast majority of the US voting age population either didn't vote for Trump or voted against him. He has the lowest approval rating of any incoming President in a generation.

If he decided to go to war, only ideological sycophants will support him. Everyone else - the vast majority in the US, and most civilized nations around the world - will condemn him.

When George H. W. Bush invaded Iraq, he didn't lie about why: it was to get Iraq out of Kuwait, and he enjoyed popular support. Still does.

When W invaded Iraq, he lied about why, everyone knew it and he had little support. The biggest protests ever seen, right around the world, were against W's illegal campaign in Iraq. Source: http://world.time.com/2013/02/15/viewpoi...y-ignored/ While the protests didn't achieve their stated goal, W is now rightly recognized as one of the worst Presidents ever, right up (or down, as the case may be) with Harding and Nixon.

So with that in mind, I can't see a Trump war being a unifier.

RE: The biggest unifier
I donno, there's a lot of the world that hates trump. He's quite the lighting rod for so many to hate that it's almost inspiring. It's galvanizing people to fight this asshole like I've never seen before.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Watching Chris Wallace and his panel on Fox News this morning.

When even Fox is calling Trump a liar, you know there's trouble.

Kellyanne Conway called it "alternative facts". What an ass.
