"Bomb The S_ _T Out Of Em", Secrecy And More Lies

The language in the following video is unfit for the ears of young Americans. The nation's 45th President as a candidate did not hesitate to spew vulgar rhetoric about his intent to bomb indiscriminately (and even "kill their families").

After Trump authorized the recent Tomahawk (cruise missile) attack ( or fireworks show) against a Syrian airport, We predicted a key dynamic. Our thought was if Trump received approval ratings rise from the attack, he would become a wild firing maniac.

In 1998 Bill Clinton experience a slight jump in approval polling after the missile strike on Iraq. December 1998. A Google search regarding Trump's approval ratings after the Syrian missile attack yields as partisan results as any matters in the US Congress and across the greater society. As we perused the survey result fields a CBS Poll stands out as an indicator of Trump's boost in ratings after the "fireworks" Tomahawk attack.

As reported by The New York Daily News:

1,006 adults across the country
Fifty-seven percent of respondents approved of Thursday’s air strike, according to a CBS News poll released Monday. Along party lines, 84% of Republicans and 40% of Democrats supported the move.
MSNBC offers a stark graphic:

Full support from conservative America and probably too much attention from non-conservatives. Are we as a nation egging on a president who could have failed to fully cognitively and experientially develop to a level required for service as US president?

When the erratic, attention loving and the immature person receives a positive response, what does the person generally react? They repeat the behavior and await the next round of praise. We are seeing just that dynamic regarding Trump's lobbing bombs across the globe. Of course, you noticed the vast difference in support for armed actions via the nation's conservative poll respondents. Sadly we previously followed conservative dogma into a nation killing abyss in recent US History.

While many in the nation are lauding Trump's meandering jingoism overseas while ignoring his complete and utter failures domestically, Trump shows us the extent of his immaturity.

Earlier in the week, Mother Jones published a piece inclusive of what follows.  As you read through the excerpt, think about a time when you could imagine an American President speaking as such.  In a segment of the interview, Trump spoke about communicating his decision to launch the Syrian missile attack.
"I was sitting at the table, we had finished dinner," Trump told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo. "We're now having dessert—and we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen—and President Xi was enjoying it." 
Bartiromo then said it was "brilliant" that the missiles were "unmanned."
"It's so incredible. It's brilliant," Trump agreed.
Then Trump appeared to momentarily forget which country the United States had attacked last week, naming Iraq instead of Syria. 
"So what happens is I said, 'We've just launched 59 missiles heading to Iraq, and I wanted you to know this,'" Trump said in the interview. "And he was eating his cake. And he was silent." 
"Syria?" Bartiromo corrected. 
"Yes, heading toward Syria," Trump said. He followed up by mentioning Xi finished his dessert.
Where did Trump head from that point? Where did he go as his cabal comes under increasing scrutiny for interaction with savory Russian operatives (in the past)? He moved to another exhibit of fireworks for effect. His "authorized" military decided the perfect time to drop the largest single ordinance (shy of a nuclear device) in the history of humankind. 
Of course, that leads to a public statement of the possibility of a pre-emptive strike against North Korea. The timing is almost bully-like.
The end of this piece would have been natural at this point, However, we cannot resist embedding a couple of short additions from CNN regarding Trump's increasing erratic behavior. Trump and company's decision to return to a more secretive White House visitor list is profoundly amazing.  That is unless we consider how Trump utilizes his weekend visits to Mar-A-Lago. The Koch brothers apparently visited with Trump last weekend. Lest we forget by authorizing the Keystone XL Pipeline construction benefited the Kochs in the range of $80 to $100 billion.  

First a few minutes on vacation hypocrisy.

In an earlier segment, CNN host Erin Burnett related to the clamp-down on publishing the White House visitor list. Watch as noted Trump presstitute literally made a fool of himself spewing Trumpism related to security issues as a reason for the policy change.

We wouldn't serve properly if we did not remind of the following:
