And Now He Is Accusing Obama of Terrorism

He is essentially accusing our President - someone who has been leading our nation and allies in a long, bloody conflict against these terrorists - of literally being co-founder (with Hillary!) of the Islamic State (ISIL, Daesh, what have you).


Considering all of the things Trump has accused our President of doing - lacking any evidence to back his claims, and in fact going against all evidence we DO have - out and out Treason is a new low.

This is the standard attack plan of the con artist demagogue, since even before the days of Tailgunner Joe. Just accuse your opponent of anything and everything, including the aid and comfort of our nation's enemies, and never mind any consequence because you can claim First Amendment right as you campaign for public office. Never mind the outright lies, never mind the libel and defamation, never mind the distortion of history and reality. As long as your people eat it up, you'll keep serving it.

At some point, what Trump is doing is so obviously criminal that SOMEONE has to fucking arrest him for this. Force him to bring these charges to a grand jury, have him under oath, see him squirm then. Put him in jail for perjury, lying to a grand jury, lying to everybody. DO SOMETHING.

We should have ended all this crap back in the last century.

Isn't he still claiming he will "loosen up the libel laws to make it easier to sue" people who say mean things about him?
As I have said elsewhere, he only missed this one by one. One president, that is. ISIS was called into existence by the invasion of Iraq by George W. Bush and his merry band of neocon liars.

I might be wrong about that. I just read somewhere that ISIS was founded in 1999, before W was even elected, and when Obama was a state senator in Illinois. I'll check my facts on that, but stand by the basic premise: we wouldn't know anything about anyone calling themselves ISIS if not for the Iraq war.
