A few days ago I read something, somewhere, about how if Trump announced some other nation had launched a missile attacking our country the writer would want that announcement verified before he or she believed it. At the time my reaction was "Yeah, so would I." After 9/11 I was concerned that the nation was so upset we'd rush to find the guilty party and attack the wrong people. So apparently I'm not quick to believe the government, but I also had the thought that if Obama said (on tv or the radio where I could hear him say it) that North Korea had launched a missile strike against us, I'd have believed him right off the bat. I don't know if that means anything other than I trust Obama and really wish he were still our president.

Today I ran across this during my morning wander through the news: http://theslot.jezebel.com/we-redacted-everything-thats-not-a-verifiably-true-stat-1793571837.

Sigh.

You know, I've had Presidents I didn't think were honest, but Trump takes it WAY beyond that.

I miss Obama, too. I miss having a president who is intelligent, well-spoken, sincere, compassionate, and diplomatic. Gotta say, however, at this point, I even miss George Junior.
