It was Clinton that gave them money and nuclear reactor technology. What did Bush add to this? But Obama knew they were developing nuclear weapons and did nothing.

I'm sure others can chime in with more.
Agree, Clarallel!

Another: Loyalty is a one way street to both of them. They want it from others, but don't return the favor. Note all the Trump feuds, usually over minor things and several firings/forced resignations in less than 7 months.

I think I started to take a walk when Scaramucci was hired, then Priebus resigned and Scaramucci was fired before I finished. Yet 5 or 6 here will probably defend Trump until the end, regardless of what happens to the nation.

Bill Maher has nothing to say that interests me, or influences me.

Really a silly thing to say. Not based in any kind of actual thought out logic. The founders created this country with checks and balances built into the constitution. No one man or branch of government has that much power.

Oh please, the USA will never be North Korea because even the Republicans would get tired of kowtowing to Trump every single day..... well I hope.... most of them anyway .... except for the hardcore Trumpers.

Bill Maher should be more afraid of his nose, which looks like a train ran over it...

It was not a failed attempt at ridicule. It was quite good.

You can list similar characteristics among dozens of good and bad leaders. It's a silly exercise and deserves ridicule just like when many compared Obama to Hitler.

Maher's biggest fear is being ignored.

What a stupid comment. People who care or put thought into what these talking TV heads have to say to keep their ratings high probably should turn their TVs off read a book or something.

These type of shows shows and most of the news media has created a nation of largely brainwashed nitwits.

Imagine it however you want. You could take any two people and say they had two legs, arms, etc. Was a fail IMO. You are entitled to yours.
