Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud President Trump for backing away from next month’s summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, proving he is not desperate for deal and keeping Kim off balance. While denouncing kneeling during the national anthem as the time or place to make a protest, they also slam Trump for suggesting maybe NFL players who kneel for the national anthem “shouldn’t be in the country.” And they unload on former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper for randomly concluding that Russian efforts to meddle in the 2016 campaign definitely made the difference in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania and flipped the election results from Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump. Jim points out that Clapper and other Trump critics simply refuse to believe that voters made a choice they don’t like.

    I write user documentation for a software company. There is no freaking way I can insert political comments — or any opinion at all — in the documents. They hired me to write about how to use the product. Full stop.

    Are you going to wring your hands about the restrictions my company puts on me? Is my right to free expression being infringed?

    See how when you change the context the issue becomes crystal clear?

    Yes, indeed.

    Oh come on. Trump didn’t propose the knee-takers be thrown out of the country, but that they find a home that makes them happier.
