Does Trump strike you as the type of guy who takes advice from anyone seriously?

Who here would blink if they learned a general advised against it and his answer was "Noted. Now, bomb the **** out of 'em."


Is this satire?

Is Trump an idiotic puppet for Bannon, Putin, etc or someone that doesn't take advise?

I guess it depends on the narrative of the day I suppose.

And it didn't seem like rage either...but, carry on.


That's because it's fake. Did I not mention the fake part?

He, himself, has said he doesn't need advisers. But, yea, I guess it depends on his narrative of the day.

I don't think I like such a drastic escalation.

First time in Afghanistan maybe.

They dropped at least one in Iraq after they field tested one​about 20 miles from where I'm sitting.



Everything I've read today says this was the first use outside of testing.

Perhaps the media got it wrong.

I guess your interpretation of rage is about as conventional as your comma utilization.

No. Daisy cutter was a smaller 15,000 bomb that was previously used in Afghanistan.

Trump Gives Generals More Freedom on ISIS Fight
Pentagon brass take lead on decisions that were made by White House under Obama; ‘I authorize my military,’ Trump says

U.S. military commanders are stepping up their fight against Islamist extremism as President Donald Trump’s administration urges them to make more battlefield decisions on their own.

Do we have a consensus in this forum that the President has at the very least been underwhelming in the job thus far?

I ain't even trying to bash the guy, but he's not exactly killing it up there.
