While it's hard gauge the context of what is shown, the lack of respect is appalling. The bottom line is that he put his hands on the leader of
another sovereign state. That happens in reverse, an individual would be at the bottom of a dog pile of SS agents. Finally, unscripted reality tv.

Well I'm glad you have called yourself out as the kind of person who still appreciates the big highschool jock giving kids swirlies cause its so
cool/edgy/funny to assert ones dominance for no other reason than to stroke a weak ego.
Sometimes I think there is a portion of the population that devolves from maturity back to cave man chest thumping barbarism. This is a good example
Haha, he wont get reelected....its pretty much a given Russia helped him win the election...with that being said. Hillary won the popular vote, and
very well may have won the election, but thanks to Russia that did not happen. Don even said they should hack the election! What kind of person do
you think he is? Have you ever in your life heard a politician say such a thing? Well that is exactly what happened. I cant wait for this to all go
down. It may not be today or tomorrow, but it is going to happen.
If we were concerned about natural order, Trump would have gotten his teeth knocked out for being such a dick.
It's a good thing manners prevailed and not machismo, unless you are a congressman from Montana.
I think the Montana incident will be good for all. Gianforte will learn a lesson that he's going to be in trouble if he lashes out (one he should
have known). It will hopefully serve him well now he has won the seat and his heading for Congress. The reporter received a valuable education on
what can happen when you continually poke the bear.
Well, if nothing else, the OP proves out the reason Trump did so well in elections. There are a lot of people for who the bluster, ego and swagger of
Trump is more important than things like I dunno, qualifications, intelligence on foreign policy and political savvy. Because everyone knows that
pushing around other countries with our "U.S.A. is best!" attitude is clearly the best way to get things done!
I also imagine his grabbing a woman by their lady-bits comment was actually applauded by lots of these people as well. Gotta take control of a
situation after all! Trump is excellent at that, at least in his own head.

Believe he's your savior. Believe he's a brilliant businessman and will run the country like his casino...
Jesus is my Savior, Trump is only my, nay OUR President.
Yes, he is currently OUR President. God and Jesus help us all.
Genuinely interested. What is it exactly that you're afraid of with Trump?
1. President "Loose Lips Sink Ships Oops I Did It Again" spilling highly classified intelligence information that puts American lives at risk and
causes our international partners to withhold information lest he blab it -- like the N. Korea nuclear sub revelation to the Duterte, and him
telling the Russians about the awesome intel he daily receives and giving enough detail for this operative to be discovered by ISIS and killed. In
the case of the subs, that is how wars start. In the case of the operative, his intel might stand between us and a major attack, but "oh no" he's
eliminated by a few careless words from our President to the freaking Russians. And then there is that interesting relationship he has with
2. Russians. Yes you guys don't believe that all that choking black smoke could possibly have any fire underneath it but it does and you will
eventually see that...hopefully before Trump starts a major war to distract us from it. He owes them Big League for saving his bum from ultimate
financial destruction many years ago. They've been grooming him ever since... You don't have to believe me on this one, because this is so freaking
complicated I can't explain it in a sentence other than to say I've seen how the dots connect and the Special Prosecutor will bring it to light. It
goes back to when Trump couldn't get loans from US banks. It ties into Paul Manafort most certainly... It's all there - the greatest treachery our
nation has ever faced in its entire history...
3. Putin? Really? You gotta be Putin me on...
On the campaign, Trump described his admiration for Putin. Putin is a BAD MAN.
4. Media Attacks - a sign of dictators everywhere.
He says the American media are "the enemy of the people" which can easily translate into "I don't like what these guys say so I'm going to try and
destroy them and establish news outlets that say what I want them to and that make my awesomeness apparent to the people who should be worshiping me!"
In my opinion, he wants his very own "Russia Today" except with "America" in the title so he can spoon feed us those White House lies without any
checks and balances from real journalists.
(See Putin video above)
5. Lies. Tons and tons and tons of lies. His lies don't seem to matter at all to his followers. They will, however, when their own lives start
getting worse. Oh, Trump will manage to blame that on anything and anyone other than himself for as long as he can, but eventually, people will get
angry and the pitchforks will be sharpened -- that is, if we can still get enough accurate information to put two plus two together and IF we still
have SOME semblance of a free election.
(this is funny, if you can forgive the source)
6. Incompetence. Trump has left crucial positions in the government unfilled. This isn't just a "let's have a smaller government" ploy, but rank
incompetence. Another example would be his "travel ban" EO that was so badly drawn up from a legal standpoint that even its second iteration has been
easily shot down. "The Wall" - Mexico will pay for it? No. You and I will pay for it if he can get Congress to budget for it...
7. Budget. oh yes, and his "budget" - another sign of complete incompetence. It is "dead on arrival" according to Republican Senators because it got
$2 TRILLION WRONG in it's basic math accounting, AND, it assumes a magical 3% growth rate when the maximum expected in 1.9%. It is an Austerity
budget for the middle class, while being a money-vacuum back up to the very very rich, which of course benefits Trump. He wants to create more of an
American Oligarchy from which to rule.
8. Healthcare. He and the Republicans are imploding healthcare. Unless the Senate can save the day, Trump would be fine with "whatever" Mr. Ryan
came up with and he even promoted it, while OBVIOUSLY not knowing the least details of what was in the bill. My son is very very sick and needs a
massive scary surgery or he will eventually die. We have good, solid and affordable insurance right now that they are about to rip away from us. I'm
not even sure the Republicans in the House understand the bill. Mark "Freedom Caucus" Meadows didn't seem to understand that he was destroying all
hope for major pre-existing conditions when showed by a reporter that the bill he voted for was grossly underfunded in the "high risk pools" he
advocated for...he almost started crying then.
9. General Ignorance. Trump has very little knowledge about things yet seems to think he knows everything. "Who knew Healthcare could be so
complicated?" "I just got back from the Middle East..." (while in freaking Israel, which is in the Middle East). Tweeting about what's on Fox or CNN
when he can just call up the freaking NSA or CIA or whomever and get briefed at a top secret classified level beyond anything the journalists have
available to them.
10. Whining instead of Winning. He whines about what a victim he is because the media doesn't say nice things. He is a super rich, super entitled,
had everything handed to him, never known a day of hunger in his life kind of guy. The problems he's faced, like his casinos going bankrupt and the
US banks not lending to him anymore because he was a bad risk (thus starting all his Russia problems and entanglements, btw, including money
laundering for them), are ALL OF HIS OWN MAKING. Still he complains we don't give him enough credit for his crowd size.
11. Corruption. Trump is corrupt. He is making money hand over fist for his children and himself by using the Presidency to do that. There are
multiple ways this is happening. They are out there. I'm getting tired of typing so you can go google that if you like.
12. Environmental Disaster - EPA regulations slashed that actually protect our drinking water and air, etc. Because Corporations need more sweet
sweet money for their all-powerful shareholders.
13. Nuclear Disaster. Ok. I know this is in the raw fear category, and we aren't there yet, but with all this N.Korea posturing and such, it feels
like more of a possibility now.
Well, that's all I could come up with off the top of my head.
I admit I've been afraid of people like Trump my whole life. I even dreamed about him as President long before he was nominated and posted it

Being the biggest power doesn't mean respect needs to be withheld or lacking toward the world. In the past we didn't see small nations as lesser as
far as world members.
Otherwise the US starts to look like a bully.
But I am not meaning to say it bows down and does not take a firm stance when the time is right for that action.
Being a bully is the only way that works in today's geopolitics. We're not taking about a perfect world where peace and love dominates. We're talking
about a world full of conflicts and where the ALFA leads and the rest follows. Being a pu$$y like Obama is not the way to make it clear who is the
toughest kid in the block. Trump is making sure the world starts getting it again who USA is.
Lol at this entire thread...I mean seriously there is 20+ pages on this?? Oh for #s sake I can only imagine what page 2-20 are like. I've already seen
it in the other 50+ threads talking about the same #!.
I read page 1 and already had enough. Trump is an alpha male. He is not like Obama so get over it. Alpha males tend to be aggressive it's a simple
fact. They also tend to be the assholes. But guess what they are go getters and they get # done! I know, my wife is an alpha female and I am a
conservative male. She gets # done while pissing people off sometimes.
Is there any reason Trump, as the representative of the most powerful nation on the planet, should show any deference to the representative of
Montenegro? Nope, no real reason at all outside of superficial platitudes and political theater.
And THAT is the backstory...The leader he shoved out of the way during the NATO meeting?
On Sunday, a Montenegrin prosecutor said “Russian state bodies” had played a role in an attempted putsch with the aim of stopping the Balkan
country from joining Nato.
Montenegrin police arrested a group of Serbian nationals on the eve of the 16 October vote and two Russian suspects are wanted over the alleged
plot to seize parliament and assassinate former president and prime minister Milo Đukanović.

Making his way to the front is fine and appropriate (after all, we do carry the majority of the burden of NATO on our shoulders), but to just slap
someone out of the way without making eye contact with them, and then turn up your nose and stand there like your fecal matter is anti-fragrant is
But that said, that is who Trump is--he's a narcissist and thinks more highly of himself than 50 of his mothers combined ever could. I don't think
that he does it with intent to anger, but I do think that it's his form of marking his territory. I just wish that he knew a more dignified way to do
it, because he does deserve to be at the front of the crowd, for sure, but not if it means belittling another human being in the process.
So, an arrogant, entitled AH, pushing his way rudely through a crowd of foreign dignitaries fills you with American pride? You sound like a ex-high
school football player who still gets off bullying smaller people, or like a 7th grader. You go feel good about the leader of our country appearing
to be an obnoxious moron, while the majority of the country/world roll their collective eyes and waits for President Wacko to get kicked out of
