What will be the moment when the hicks, hayseeds, and rubes who voted for Trump and still support him, finally give up?

I think it will be war with North Korea. What do you think?

Do you think Trump's supporters want or don't want war with North Korea?

Is war with North Korea also war with China? If so, is Trump willing to go to war with China? I don't think he is.

As Senator John McCain said, "Sometimes it's important to watch what the President does rather than what he says."

No, I don't think Trump supporters want to go to war with North Korea, which is why I speculated that it would be his Katrina moment.

No, I don't think Trump wants to go to war with China. The bigger question is: is Trump capable of realizing war with North Korea will likely trigger war with China as well? That I am not so sure. Only the fact that we have generals calling the shots is the only thing that gives me comfort.

I mean, Trump just called the U.S. Constitution "archaic". Who knows what he is capable of doing, if left to his own devices?

This is kind of interesting. Trump’s take on Andy Jackson & the Civil War offers up some insight into his thinking.
