Dealing With Dingbats

Via Charlie Pierce, Drumpf on Putin at his press conference:

“I want to thank him because we’re trying to cut down our payroll, and as far as I’m concerned I’m very thankful that he let go of a large number of people because now we have a smaller payroll. There’s no real reason for them to go back. I greatly appreciate the fact that we’ve been able to cut our payroll of the United States. We’re going to save a lot of money.”

Via Media Matters, Fox News anchor says the the media is showing a double standard by expecting more of Trump than from Kim Jong-Un 😈

I wonder – if I was a North Korean general responsible for the demonstration of force by firing four missiles to land off Guam, I would scheduled it a week or so later to give the ship with the four explosive charges that would indicate success time to reach the area off Guam. Four missiles would be fired from North Korea, and then there would be four explosions in the sea off Guam. The record of North Korean success is not great, and Kim will definitely get upset if the missiles fail.

Wait, you’re saying, won’t intel know that the launch and the explosions are unrelated? “Fake News!” just like the White House…
