Trump politicizes Thanksgiving call with troops to attack migrants, judges

President Donald Trump used a Thanksgiving morning call with military members to weigh in on a wide variety of sensitive political topics, a stark departure from typical holiday greetings from the commander in chief.

Even by Trump's standards of bare-knuckled politics, his comments on an array of controversial issues during what is typically a ceremonial and routine Thanksgiving call was striking.
"This was, sadly, predictable and avoidable," said retired Rear Adm. John Kirby, a CNN military and diplomatic analyst. "The President's conduct on that call, the manner in which he politicized it, demonstrated an utter and complete disregard for what military service means."

The Right elected a complete moron president. Years ago, one of them suggested to me that a ticket of Rush and Sean would be ideal.

Well, I believe he got his wish. At least he is thankful today.

I read the title of the thread thought Trump had over cooked the Turkey:lamo

Though I doubt the man has ever cooked a meal in his life.
But hey I could be wrong.

Trump has no respect for the military. Never ever did that I can recall.

He's too chicken**** to visit our troops overseas in kinetic theaters. A big fat chicken**** *****.

He didn’t ruing Thanksgiving.

That said, does Trump not have advisors who tell him the way these things are supposed to work? That you don’t politicize holiday messages to the troops...or to cub scouts? Or does Trump have such advisors but just ignores them?

He had such advisers and fired them all because he doesn't like what they say.

I just cannot imagine Donald and the the three kids sitting at a table, even back in the Ivana Trump days.

I am sorry that your Thanksgiving has been ruined, calamity. Maybe next year's will be better.

An impeachment trial might cheer me up.

TDS is real.

I see a lot of Trump threads being posted on DP the past year that just are personal attacks against him and his family. Nothing about his policies... simply personal attacks you would see in a playground.

After such sensible advice, he calls Hannity to see what he thinks. Then he tweets and talks.

Seems you ruined your own Thanksgiving. No family to spend it with?

Hope things get better for you...

All you would start doing then is a bitch about Mike Pence. If you not held accountable the democrats that have failed this country.

He and his family are criminals. And Trump is the worst president we have ever had. #45 is ranked 45th.

Ruined Thanksgiving?!?!?!?! Heck - this clown has ruined every single day since he was sworn in.

Only for those still not emotionally recovered over the results of the 2016 election.

Perhaps he is upset because he thinks Trump pardoned the wrong turkeys. He probably would prefer that Hillary and Stormy's lawyer should be pardoned.

Calamity has said he does not believe Bill Clinton did anything wrong. He called Monica a consenting adult

lol..since she was born in 1973, she would have been 22 or 23. Are you going to pretend that is below the age of consent?

It does not matter. It was an abuse of power and an impeachable offense.
