    That red line in Syria almost got my brother killed, thank you. :(

    Also, I would say working with Iran is gonna be a good deal in the long run.

    Trump's handlers convinced him that was a bridge too far. What is going on?

    Herbert Hoover got 40% of the vote in 1932. Friendly reminder.

    This is one of Trump's best teleprompter performances. He's usually very flat when he reads; he still sounds a bit unnatural, and is forcing it a little, but it's still much better than his usual job.

    If a doctor retired early during the recession at the age of 62, he is unlikely to come back once the recession is over a few years later because why bother.
    Trump says that “14 million people have left the workforce entirely” since Obama took office in 2009. It’s not clear where exactly that figure comes from; the labor force is in fact 4.7 million people larger today than when Obama took office in 2009. But it’s certainly true that as a share of the population, fewer Americans are working today than when Obama took office. Despite a bit of a rebound in recent months, the so-called labor force participation rate is near a three-decade low.

    Much of that decline is due to the aging of the baby-boom generation, which would have happened regardless of the state of the economy. But the recession accelerated the process
    , pushing millions of Americans out of the job market; many of them have never returned. Earlier this year, I estimated that if all those people were counted as “unemployed” rather than “out of the labor force,” the unemployment rate would be nearly a point higher than it is.

    Yes. On conflicts started by the Republicans.

    He's had four day of underlings and fanatics stoking his ego. Probably the happiest he's ever been.

    Imagine if you could actually directly either begin or end literally every single problem you're dealing with?

    Imagine if it was only our own mistakes that ever led to issues
