So, for just a couple of minutes, let's drop the Left v. Right BS. We've all seen the footage of Trump and Putin in Helsinki. We all heard what was said, the body language, and a fair understanding of the message being sent. And now, a day later, Trump is saying that he simply misspoke and used the word 'would' when he meant to say 'wouldn't'. I have to ask, is there anyone here that has listened to Trump's retraction and honestly believes it's legit?
In that same vein, who cares?
What has changed?
Is our country less safe?
A politician said something.
He questioned the intelligence services.
Don't we do that daily?
Don't we scoff when "intelligence" says Iraq has WMD's?
This is just an opportunity to attack Trump.
That's all this is.
Unless you can identify the global or national ramifications from what he said, the past 24 hours has been hyperbole on steroids.

Exactly. I see all of this hyperventaling as a complete joke. People are walking away from the ideology and the party for that reason among many. Being manipulated and lied to on a regular basis.

That’s how I felt about all the uproar on Hillary quotes. She wasn’t my choice, but come on.
Everyone on the right threw a fit when she said “we came, we saw, he died”. Really? That’s the worst thing ever? Big whoop.
“At this point, what difference does it make?” — I thought some people were going to have a stroke over that one.
And don’t even get started on the deplorables statement. I still hear people claim she said everyone who voted for Trump is a deplorable. Talk about fake news!
