    I wonder if all of those "patriots" that have such a problem with someone kneeling during a song will see the problem with this?

    So, he said military involvement in Africa is rough. Including the terrorists themselves being rough. Adding, the life of a terrorist is hard, cause they were chased out of one part of the world into another.
    :drake

    The only fault of Trumps here is he should of remembered a fallen soldiers name. He should of briefed himself better on that.

    Laughing at how rough the terrorists are having it. Not the whole situation. Especially about the four dead US soldiers. There is a difference.

    Whatever bullshit excuse you want to make. This President continues to show disrespect for the lives of US service members which isn't surprising considering who he is.

    To top it off, you know if Obama had been photographed smiling at a fucking baby the day he was told a soldier died in a skiing accident unrelated to war it'd be top story on Fox News for two days.

    No doubt that the president is not an upright guy and yes there are double standards portrayed by the media, with this instance against trump being one of them. Trump isn't guilty here tho. It's simple exaggeration over a guy that many do not like so they want to get him any chance they can.

    It's simple reading. Nothing more nothing less.:kanyeshrug

    Article is kind of garbage.

    He is laughing at the terrorist.

    He is still a fuckwad and a terrible person, but this story is a non story.

    You don't joke about anyone when discussing the bodies of freshly dead soldiers. What the fuck is wrong with you people?

    And the title doesn't say anything about him laughing at the soldiers, just that he was joking when discussing them.

    Trump was chosen by millions of Americans, so they must like his mentality.

    Because he is making America great again.

    It's remarkable the way people bend over backwards to treat the casualness of this situation as something that wouldn't have been a big deal ten years ago.

    I remember people getting mad that Bush was taking golf swings after conducting business. Even that fucking idiot wouldn't be cracking jokes in the same sentence that you told him about the loss of four soldiers.

    Well if stories like these are mixed with headlines and narrative like that I can understand why some people question the credibility of some of the us media

    Has this been an article from some serious news outlet or is it more kind of a buzzfeed stuff?

    He wasn't laughing at the dead soldiers dude. From what I read here it's more bemusement than anything. The sensation dulls itself when it happens often enough, I assume a military commander would voice much the same sentiment in this situation, acknowledging the scrape their men had gotten into but appreciating how much the other side had to pay for the shit they tried pulling.

    Expecting Trump to swoon like a dainty flower over every soldier killed in the line of duty is a little silly.

    Niger BTW a strong candidate for Worst Country in the World.

    They have a GDP/capita of $300, only 15% of them are literate, and they have a life expectancy of 60 years. Women there bear on average 7 children.

    Yeah but consider those things together. He doesn't do his research on the soldiers, gives a briefing when he seems to know even less than his aides, and then starts making jokes. It all points to the fact that he is not engaged at all as the executive.

    I also know people who are familiar with the Presidential briefing process. Apparently, the President doesn't read anything and needs information showed to him by video to pay attention.

    It's totally ridiculous.

    Another misinterpreted non story. Nobody cares. Seriously.

    Trump widening the Overton window with his discourse has benefited America Bigly, even the libtards get to join in the fun because it gives them something to whine about.

    I cant conclude with the dates
    If this joke come at same meeting discussing fallen US soldier i can say US didnt care about US soldier at all..he didnt even pretend to care.

    If the joke cames week(s) but still discussing the attack. It shows Trumps lack of empathy.

    If the joke come in unrelevant meeting (didnt discuss the attack) that is acceptable.

    P.s. Also he avoided draft.

    I'd give the same speech about actions>intentions I did in another thread, but the issue is this wasn't meant to be communicated to anyone (outside the room). This was a private conversation that got recorded without permission, and people looked into it and didn't like what they got. Whether or not you believe the comments about the soldiers were offensive, private speech is private speech. There's nothing illegal or dangerous here, and the comments would only mean that Trump has a poor social etiquette. Which... we already know.
