That is a scary article and to think this is the guy with his finger on the nuclear button such that he could end us all any time.
He was too soft on Russia and Syria, as the Dems cried out collusion with Russia and pointed to the bloodshed in Syria. He then lauds 59 tomahawks into Syria and gets tougher on Russia and North Korea and now he's a warmonger, hell bent on WW3. Gosh, make up your minds people... Damned if he does, damned if he doesn't.

I don't think any Dems were saying he was too soft on Syria or North Korea before. Not sure where that notion is coming from. As for Russia, it's been a mixed bag. I think he is taking the right tone with them now though.

Interestingly, a new poll suggest that most Americans think there was some sort of inappropriate thing going on with Russia.

When I first saw that I thought it was a joke.
Donald Trump presses a red button on his desk and a butler brings him a Coke

While there has been a great deal of speculation and consternation about the prospect of Donald Trump pressing the nuclear button, it turns out there is another button the Presidentis privy to.

Mr Trump has a special wooden box on his desk in the Oval Office of the White House containing a single button which he has been using to order glasses of Coca-Cola.

The rectangular box is located on the Resolute Desk which Presidents have used for decades.


President Trump's penchant for the soda was revealed in his Associated Press interview inside the Oval Office ahead of his 100th day as President.

“A man accustomed to wealth and its trappings, Trump has embraced life in the Executive Mansion, often regaling guests with trivia about the historic décor,” wrote the journalist Julian Pace.

“With the push of a red button placed on the Resolute Desk that presidents have used for decades, a White House butler soon arrived with a Coke for the president.”

Hmm...after reading this I had to go on a shopping expedition as I didn't even know such things existed. And found one. Maybe it's even the one he is using! Might have to pick one of these up myself to summon the husband. LOL
