    I know, you're an Obama and HRC fanboy, so you'd much prefer if we went ahead and actually bombed a place into a total shithole like Libya, then went on national TV to brag and say things like "We came, we saw, he died" like some pompous cheerleader celebrating the destabilization of a country.

    Good grief. Are you simply not capable of holding this administration accountable for anything? If leaks are coming from the White House (which it appears they have been), then someone in the White House needs to fix it. That is the common sense answer. If you think the media isn't going to run news then you are delusional, and if you don't think the media has tried to get these types of things from every administration you are delusional. This administration is just especially bad at stopping the information from getting out. It could also be fixed from the inside, but that would actually require them doing something right.

    I thought you were hell bent on defending Trump's self-congratulatory televised interview??!?!?!? But now you're gonna play the 'b-b-but THEY DID IT too' card?

    For the record, Hilary's comment that you quoted was picked up off the record in a break from formal taping--you know. just like Trump's 'you can grab 'em by the pussy when you're a celebrity' comment. If you wanna talk about pompous cheerleading, that gem takes the cake.

    Shookster thinks that Trump simply describing how he arrived at his decision is worth going into hysterics over yet voted for this display of horseshit:

    I agree it should be addressed. It'd probably be easier if there weren't people who actively want to take down the President and are willing to do it from the inside in coordination with the media.

    But the point stands- the NYT didn't have to run it. I am 100% sure that they have received information in the past, during other Admins, that they knew contained information that didn't belong in print and chose not to run it. Yet during the Trump Admin, every single thing that is leaked from "anonymous sources" has ended up being run by the media. It's pretty easy to see what's going on here.

    It's exactly what I described -- or are you going to tell us all now that the clip you shared was actually part of a formal interview???

    And regarding Trump "simply describing how he arrived at his decision," ask any General who has advised the President regarding Presidential greenlighting of military operations and he'll tell you that Trump gave a great display of horseshit.

    I see. So gloating to your buddies in the media that you just destabilized a northern African country as Sec of State, and did so without any sort of stabilization plan is just fine and dandy, so long as it was done off script and informally before the actual interview.

    Got it. Bravo on that thought process.

    Yeah, riiiiiiiiight. No news agency would ever break an exclusive news story if it might hurt a Democrat President. :)

    Yes, it's pretty easy to see what's going on here: An administration in chaos.

    Yeah, it is easy to see. This administration has no control over it's staffers.

    The NYT can run whatever they wish. If they obtain it illegally that is another story, but someone inside the administration just giving them information is perfectly fair game for them to run. The NYT (and other papers) have a history of running this type of information. The NYT's ran the Pentagon Papers for goodness sake. You are simply trying to re-write history by trying to make it out to simply be something against Trump.

    Gloating? That's how you're going to describe that clip??? :)

    Sure looked like she was joking around to me.

    ANTI-GUN CANDIDATE ERIC SWALWELL BECOMES FIRST DEM TO DROP OUT OF PRESIDENTIAL RACE
    by Kevin Ryan

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) has become the first candidate to drop out of the 2020 Democratic presidential primary. The congressman made the announcement at a press conference this afternoon.

    Swalwell’s signature proposal was a $15 billion buy-back of semiautomatic “assault weapons” and a ban on their possession. The plan drew the ire of gun owners, some of whom warned such a confiscation could provoke war. To which Swalwell responded “It would be a short war... the government has nukes”.

    Swalwell has languished for months near the bottom of the polls. Montana Gov. Steve Bullock looked set to bump him from the July debates, and Swalwell was unlikely to make the October debates, which have much higher qualification thresholds of 130,000 voters plus 2% support in four polls.

    He also announced he will launch a reelection bid for his fifth term in the House.

    Anyone can run on the democratic side. Just one up the other candidates on free stuff (aka stealing from the productive). Simple plan!
