    “Maybe someone else will want to tap her for something…” Phrasing, Greg. Phrasing!

    As for Greta, those who take a mentally-ill youngster and program her for such things should be lined up against the wall.

    I was upset but not surprised to hear Jim talk about Trump’s strongarm tactics in the Ukraine scandal. That is over the top.

    He can’t help himself. I let that pass. Doubly-ditto on today’s. He sees the world through a glass darkly.

    Jim Geraghty is doubling down on his earlier condemnation of Trump’s siding with Turkey instead of the Syrian Kurds.

    In the end this turned out to be rather inconsequential, and everyone else has forgotten all about it.

    Should President Trump have left 50 soldiers to be between two enemies that live there and have always had this turmoil.  We shouldn’t be there.  And there are American Nuclear missiles in Turkey that we can’t just remove.  Not good to tick off the Turks just now.  I wish they didn’t exist but they do, so we have to play the game carefully. Oh, and Jim, Trump did not put the Missiles there, or the 50 soldiers.  You make no sense on this. There are times I really have to decide if I’m going to listen to 3 Martini or not.  Your unfair criticism of President Trump can be found on all the Cable shows, and everywhere else.  Not cool!
