President Trump must have been a fan of the Batman television series. This evening, he was "The Riddler".


President Trump raised eyebrows Wednesday evening when he told members of Congress and health care practitioners that "I think I know the answer" to America's opioid crisis.

However, the President added that he was "not sure the country is ready for it yet."

Trump was speaking at an Oval Office ceremony prior to signing legislation aimed at giving Customs and Border Protection agents additional tools to stop the flow of illicit drugs.

"Does anybody know what I mean?" Trump asked the group gathered around his desk. "I think so." He did not elaborate.

Any guesses as to what Opioid crisis solution President Trump has in mind? It must be very radical, if Americans are not be ready for it yet. The word "yet" implies that we will be ready for it in the future, if the crisis continues to worsen.

Sure he will single handed kill all the family members that made some 34 billion dollars from the sale of opiods under the name of Oxycontin and then claim himself god of all mere mortal men.

yeah he wants to reboot the drug war, Opiat crisis what an effing crock of shi.

What about the nicotine crisis in America? Smoking kills 1 in 5 americans every year LMAO 1 in 5 440,000 just Americans a year.


Why is this a crisis and not that? how about the strain on our healthcare system from smoking alone?

Well now I need a smoke.

Prisons, he wants to build more prisons and lock everyone up.

That is my guess anyways.

He wants a hard stance on all drugs. I think the reason he says that people are not ready for that yet is that he is afraid of all of the marijuana support. Him and his buddy Jeffy Sessions have a real nice plan, I'm sure of it (sarcasm).

Because he doesn't know. Or more correctly, feigning he knows secretly. They don't the war on drugs to ever end, its good business.

The "war on drugs" was started by Nixon in the 70s', lol.

Like ever other war fought against crime, poverty, education, even the War on Terror, its designed to go on forever.

Here we are.

Oh dear. He's not the Riddler, he's the Bloviator. I doubt he knows the answer and has a secret plan, he's just flapping his gums again.

I'd be super excited if Trump said, "I know what's going on with UFO/Aliens, but the world is not ready for it yet".

Does that solution we're not ready for include Sessions headlining it?

Interesting, then why would we be ready in the future?

Legal opium for the masses! Yay, the east coast will get one over Cali with the liberal opening of weed shops combined with opium dens.

After Trump leaves office, the news will go back being boring. You'll miss him too! Enjoy experiencing history in the making.

I'm thinking that it would include arresting doctors who over-prescribe.

That's what the government can do with Marijuana. Legalize it and add a big tax, like they do with cigarettes.
