Okay, that is double think, what is the relevance of bringing up doublethink in this context?  I would think that President Trump is too shallow for double think, he wears his id on his sleeve.  So apparently you are talking about someone else, everyone else?

When I say that President Trump is shallow, I do not mean that as an insult, but an observation.  Donald Trump in the past has extolled the virtues of shallowness.  Most of what the public sees is the obnoxious side of Trump, but I also understand that he can be quite charming in person.  Still shallow, but quite charming.
I agree with McConnell that we could have less drama coming out of the Whitehouse.

It was interesting with President Trump a few days ago, after the Alexandria shooting, being the voice of unity.  I guess his speech writer wrote out the script and Trump made sure he stuck to it.  It is nice that he can stick to a script if he sees it as necessary.  Trump is learning some, I don't know if it is enough or fast enough.

I almost call Trump the voice of reason for a moment, almost. <grin>

It is interesting that the shooter was a Saunders supporter, it is not only the right that is pissed off and angry these days.  People don't feel that the system is fair, they feel there is favoritism, that there is not a level playing field.

It shouldn't be a surprise that Bernie Sanders fool lost his mind like most of the left. Especially when you consider the hate being spewed by leftist organizations like the mainstream media and the dnc.

By the way, lots of people were appalled by what Obama did in office. You never saw this violence and vitriol from conservative groups meant to impede all progress. Now free speech on college campuses is a thing of the past because of cowards who can't cope with the f***up that Obama delivered to the world.  

Now it's hate speech and it's OK because it's falling from the sky like snowflakes.

Maybe you haven't noticed but the greatness dwindled during Obama's apology-fest. Are you wishing for failure? Sure sounds like it. Maybe someday academics will fix their own plumbing, fix their own cars and grow their own food. Until then it's just hate speech because academics don't provide anything of value to the quality of life. In fact academia has resulted in 40% of the population attaining useless degrees and on average a master's degree in a useless field will cost a quarter million$ with graduates working at Best Buy.

Hillary is a disaster of biblical proportions, could never create jobs, deal with the mobs inspired to murder police (encouraged by the dnc) or handle NK or Russia. Some reset. She's an unapologetic power monger.

No adult over 40 thinks that Trump is religious. And and he was a democrat for most of his life. So you are labeling all of Trump's voters as rednecks? The fringe? Nonsense. Then give me rednecks. 

Why did Mr. NYC win these people over? It's because Obama failed miserably and Hillary is a see through liar who posed as an honest person. Trump always distinguishes his political agenda from provocative comments that are a response to the 97% of negative news stories by liberal bed wetters. If you can't see the distinction then you your tuition was wasted.

Liberals Mock Warmbier's captivity. And these are the "Good" people?

You think because Trump doesn't indulge in grandiloquence it makes him simple minded? He spent his life learning about the world, media and making money. Maybe you are impressed with that nonsense gibberish meant to obscure the plain and simple truth but just an aside, your pal Hillary is a pretty dim bulb especially when she opens her fat mouth. Oh, right you like proper names and don't like the word fat. 

Well take your own advice fransicosan. 

I mean really, will the people of the FUTURE know what the ho's war was? Don't be such a hypocrite.

"ho"? you mean like pimps call women?  I imagine that those who get into depth into history in the future might now what you are talking about, but I don't.  I try to use the full name or title at least once in a post, towards the beginning.  Of course sometimes I am talking about the campaign persona of Donald Trump (up to and including today) and so I will talk about just "Trump".  The "Trump Presidency or the Trump campaign or so forth."
hypocrisy recognizes that there are various virtues/values that it is important to strive for, even if we fall short.  Trying to be virtuous, is itself virtuous, although it is not as good as succeeding.
  
I don't follow the news closely and so I don't know who mocked Warmbier.  I feel sympathy for him, but I wonder why anyone would willingly go to North Korea in the first place.  He is (was) a pawn in a much bigger game than he realized, and I am afraid he paid the price.  It is not a matter of guilt, it is the matter of convenience for the North Korean regime.  The North Korean regime was looking for an excuse to use him as a pawn in the game, and he gave it to them.  This is a country that tested nerve gas on the families of political dissidents.  R.I.P, for all of the casualties of the regime.

But on the same token, I believe that fools rush in where angels fear to tread.  It is of no use to get mad about it, and then go off half-cocked because one is mad.  I have always thought of it as a liberal mistake to believe that one must do "something," because "cares" so deeply.  "Caring" is not of much use to anyone, unless you know how to care in the right way.  Radicals thought that Reagan (Ray-guns) was the devil, and because of that they don't recognize that he did what they said they wanted all along, end the cold war, and the MAD policy (Mutually Assured Destruction).
