President Trump said on Friday that he wants "his people" to listen to him like North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's people listen to him. "He’s the head of a country. And I mean, he is the strong head," Trump said of Kim in remarks from the White House north lawn to "Fox & Friends." "Don’t let anyone think anything different. He speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same," Trump said.

I give it another 6 months and he'll be signing a bill that requires us to display a picture of him in our homes.

Today is June 15, so that would make it December 15 that YOU say he will be signing this bill. It's calendared on my cell phone and the post is screen copied. Your credibility is on the line.

I didn't exactly say who "he" was though did I? This will be easy enough to legitimize.

LOL!! I laughed at the explanation, it WAS genuinely funny. Would be even funnier if he actually did it, however, I also copied the header which plainly identifies Trump as "he".

I'll be back in December (wink)

The header is a direct quote from the article in the link that I shared. Nowhere in my own explanation did I mention Trump's name. You can't take words at face value in one thought and then make assumptions in the next thought. What a dangerous contradiction.

You better have a Christmas present for me when you get back. How about a framed portrait of Trump I can hang in my home?

Yes, I'm sure Trump would love for everyone in the country to lay down and roll over at his command not to mention sit, stay and play dead.

He already has his wish, the Trumpettes already sit up at attention with every tweet or utterance from Trump. It's the 70% of the rest of the country who will never even show the guy much respect.

You might have left a little bit of the story out, but Trump should know by now that anything he says will be taken in the worst possible way. Plus, he doesn't do sarcasm well at all.

"I was kidding," he said. "You don't understand sarcasm."

This does remind me of how the right would look at Obama's comments and the fear of losing gun rights, and FEMA camps, and becoming a dictator. There really is not much difference except the news networks just switched sides.

Our loss of privacy started with Bush, continued with Obama, and is still going on with Trump. People love to cry chicken little, but I didn't find it useful before and I still don't. JMHO

The article has been edited since I shared it this morning since Trump gave his presser later this morning and stated that he was kidding. But even before he said that I wasn't taking his comments seriously...just more surprised than anything at his choice in topics when it comes to kidding around, lol. Like you said if a Democrat mentioned taking away everyone's guns and then said "just kidding" it'd be just as equal a dramatic overreaction.

BREAKING NEWS: EXPLODING HEADS AS TRUMP WITH LEFTISTS

HA HA HA!

"I was kidding," he said. "You don't understand sarcasm."

Everything Trump does is spun to the worst possible scenario by leftists. Everything he says, does, or Tweets has everyone up in arms and running around declaring "THE SKY IS FALLING!" It has been ongoing since he took office, before really, and after a year and a half of it, I gotta tell ya...I'm just going to sit back and watch the show. (biggrin)

Lol like Will and I were discussing above..imagine if Obama had come out and said on Day 1...."I plan to take all your guns!!!.............just kidding". The reaction from the right would be no different. Right wing and left wing extremists alike have very easy heads to explode.

That's true.

You must admit, though, that the left has been particularly...excitable with this particular president...and he does seem to enjoy stirring them up.

Well it has been more excitable because of the man that is President. I don't think Obama received any less hate from the right than Trump does from the left. Like you pretty much said though...Trump is a bit of a troll and he knows how to stir up the masses. I don't see it ever dying down either. I honestly think the 2020 election is going to be ten times the circus that it was in 2016.

Yes...and no.

Obama may not have been hated less, though I believe that to be debatable, but he was far more accepted as president, albeit reluctantly. Certainly there were the birthers who never accepted him and actively sought to prove him illegitimate. Those were a minority, however. There were many who did, may still, believe that, but reluctantly accepted he was president nonetheless. They didn't protest, riot, scream at the sky, or repeatedly and openly call for Obama's assassination as has happened with Trump. Nor did the vast majority of the media constantly dog every move Obama made.

Trump is unlike any president we have ever had. He is not "presidential" in that he is not PC, he's prone to hyperbole, and when attacked, he attacks back.

Combined that pretty much guarantees it won't die down as long as he is president.
