“‘That’s not the America I know’: Obama accuses Trump of stoking hate’

So says the world’s greatest living killer, a man who runs wars and bombings in half a dozen places as well as running an entire system of extrajudicial killing.

A man who destroyed Libya, has worked at destroying Syria for years, still kills in Afghanistan and Iraq, a man who has pushed, with no justification, his military into the very face of Russia and threatens the Chinese in a sea ten thousand miles from his home, a man who supports Saudi slaughter in Yemen, and still other horrors.

And I wonder how many readers are aware of his latest arms deal, the one with Saudi Arabia’s absolute princes for $115,000,000,000? Nice piece of business as reward for supporting blood-drenched tyrants.

I don’t know about you, but for me, killing hundreds of thousands of people, complete strangers, is about as great an expression of hate as is possible.
