  1. "Trump continued his attack on the NFL calling their patriotism in question. Trump attempted to buy the Buffalo Bills in 2014 and was denied entrance into the exclusive boys club. The other stunningly obvious reason for his war on football is his unmitigated bigotry and that of his supporters. Trump is playing the race card by inflaming the emotions of his bigoted base, who are wholly threatened by the concept of wealthy men of color fighting for change" http://www.politicususa.com/2017/10/22/opinion-12-days-silence-niger-tragedy-exposes-donald-trump-fake-patriot.html
  2. Muslims living in western non muslim countries - because they choose to migrate for economic reasons ( not because they dreamed of western way of life and culture) - maybe, as you say and repeat "condemn Islamic terrorism" - BUT - they rather should condemn clearly the ideology behind - and denounce and boycott the places where this ideology is taught and spread, and avoid keeping a blind eye when family members, relatives, friends are involved in suspicious or delictual activities . But they are more active at speaking up against islamophobia. It's easier.
  3. Maybe for Trump, simply a memory loss symptom.. "Trump won’t say name of Sgt. Johnson after Niger death: ‘I was so nice… I spoke the name of the young man. President Donald Trump insisted to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that he knew the name of a soldier who died in Niger even though he referred to him as “the young man” during the interview" https://www.rawstory.com/2017/10/trump-wont-say-name-of-sgt-johnson-after-niger-death-i-was-so-nice-i-spoke-the-name-of-the-young-man/
  4. "We should worry about a president who hides behind bright medals and pressed uniforms. Doing so may help Trump escape his current political scrape, but he’ll do so at the cost of the long-term reputation of the military, and its proper role in society." http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/politics/2017/10/john_kelly_will_make_america_s_civil_military_divide_an_even_bigger_problem.html
  5. the results of their tribal and clan mentality.

  7. "In attack on Frederica Wilson over Trump’s call to widow, John Kelly gets facts wrong" http://www.miamiherald.com/news/politics-government/national-politics/article179869321.html "Just like his boss, the president, Kelly never once uttered the name of Sgt. La David Johnson or his pregnant widow, Myeshia. Much of the mainstream press was predictably breathless over Kelly's forceful performance. Interestingly, many of the military commentators were not as impressed, correctly observing that it was Trump and Kelly who were politicizing the fallen. And the president just kept going:" https://www.salon.com/2017/10/20/trumps-hatchet-man-john-kelly-and-the-big-lie/ Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/news/politics-government/national-politics/article179869321.html#storylink=cpy
  8. Thank toTrump , Niger attack's fifth victim http://www.politico.com/story/2017/10/19/trump-john-kelly-gold-star-families-243970
  9. "Russia could have launched it efforts by assessing who within the Trump team would be amenable to working with a foreign power. “The two things I look for as an intelligence officer looking to recruit someone is ego and greed,” Sipher said. “If I look at the Trump team, I’m saying, ‘holy shit. " https://www.rawstory.com/2017/10/how-trumps-collusion-with-russia-would-have-worked-from-first-contact-to-election-day/
  10. "President Donald Trump’s attack on the NFL is down to a long held jealousy he has for the league after failing to buy the Buffalo Bills in 2014, the Jacksonville Jaguars owner says. Here, it’s about money, or messing with—trying to soil a league or a brand that he’s jealous of.” https://www.rawstory.com/2017/10/trumps-problem-with-the-nfl-comes-down-to-jealousy-says-jaguars-owner/
  11. Even for non-Americans, it's painfull to watch "America" as brand deeply damaged by Trump as POTUS combining paramount arrogance with abyssal incompetence in every circumstances.
  12. "Americans can “take a knee” during the national anthem thanks to the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Being able to protest is actually a long-established right, and it’s a right that was established in the most American of circumstances: by a religious group, before the Supreme Court." https://qz.com/1102238/americans-can-take-a-knee-during-the-national-anthem-thanks-to-the-jehovahs-witnesses/ Hertha Berlin players ‘take a knee’ in solidarity with NFL protests – http://www.businessinsider.fr/us/german-soccer-team-hertha-berlin-kneels-during-national-anthem-nfl-protest-2017-10/
  13. "But Rep. Frederica Wilson defended her statements, saying others who heard the president can corroborate her account. And when she actually hung up the phone, she looked at me and said ‘he didn't even know his name.’ So that's the worst part." http://www.politico.com/story/2017/10/18/trump-fallen-soldier-widow-frederica-wilson-243899 " What Trump did was insult a pregnant widow, and show that he has no respect for the men and women in uniform. His name was La David Johnson, and he deserves better than Donald Trump." http://www.politicususa.com/2017/10/18/trump-disrespects-hero-green-beret-knowing-speaking-widow.html
  14. "Trump’s sabotage politics: Break things, then take the credit when others fix them" "Trump doesn’t have a strategy, on health care or anything else. He lurches from one hostage scenario to the next" https://www.salon.com/2017/10/18/trumps-sabotage-politics-break-things-then-take-the-credit-when-others-fix-them/
