I'm trying to work out if it was a master stroke of 'bluff pulling' to see what their reaction would be...
Or he is really that dumb...

North Korea warns of super-mighty pre-emptive strike...
Am I the only one thinking...?
What do we expect here. North Korea apparently continue to develop weapons capabilities while making threats to other countries. As they stay this course, it seems a war with them is inevitable regardless of who is running the show...on either side. Either they will do something stupid or the threat level will reach a tipping point and things will kick off.
Plus it would also give the Americans a good old fashioned war, with an obvious enemy, that have their own country, military installations and assets. They love that sort of thing.
I doubt it. Think 1984: N. Korea threatening the whole world with war is strictly for home consumption. The purpose is to control its own population. Classic abuse control tactic: make the victim feel that the outside world is even more scary and abusive and that only the abuser can protect them.
Whereas most of the rest of the world sees this -
“The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists.”
― Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism
and - no wall
Doing well so far:
Here's the video.
A bullshitter caught bullshitting.
This is worth a read https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/poli...-now-know-exactly-why-clinton-lost/ar-BBAyW55 There's a danger the Democrats will follow the Labour approach of "Since everyone I know thinks Trump is awful, we need to just concentrate on telling our base what they want to hear and wait to win the next election automatically".
I guess his supporters don't see it as bullshitting, not much sticks to Teflon™ Trump despite his heroic level of stupidity.
American politics has really jumped the shark this time.
It truly is a spectacle to behold. "President Trump".
Congratulation on passing a bill that will kill more Americans in a single than terrorists did during the past 16 years.
