    The Pelosi / Schumer rebuttal was...odd
    Is dedicated national TV time voicing opposition to the President going to be a thing now?

    So after the president addresses the nation, we'll have a politician doing his best Cousin Vinny...

    Very productive.

    That's been going on for years. It's really nothing new.

    They do it after State of the Union - that's a thing and accepted as normal.

    But other than campaigns - I don't recall anything like that. Opposing views are generally expressed via statements and interviews. Maybe I'm not remembering the other times an opposing viewpoint was granted a national TV audience immediately after the president addressed the country? I don't know - it felt weird.

    That's also because the President generally doesn't address the nation like this unless it's a natural disaster or a declaration of war. Things where generally there's at least a projection of unity between the parties. This was Trump campaigning and naming enemies followed by two assholes looking like vampires.

    Pure shit show all around.

    Yeah. I guess Trump's addressing of the nation was more political than your typical situation, so that's a little odd in itself.

    Defeated as in their control. There was a map that showed isis control before trump that was fully red with a little green and the other night the map was fully green with a little red. They have lost their control and lost all that they had. They are defeated. They are not eradicated and never will be. You can’t stop Muslim extremists. Trump is doing a great job and lots of great things have happened under his watch. I’m sorry you can’t see it, I’m loving it over here. Must suck to be on your side lol

    It feels like we are settling in for a war of semantics.

    Dems agree we need better borders, but want nothing to do with a "wall"

    Trump has been talking about a "wall" for so long he will see it as a loss if he concedes to anything other than a physical barrier from the Pacific to the Gulf.

    Unfortunately I don't know that there is a single adult in Washington that can mediate the issue so we can all move forward.

    Maybe they could settle on a border "solid-fence"

    I assume you mean under control?

    And ISIS isnt under America's control or the National Security Advisor wouldnt have stated America needs to stick around until ISIS is actually defeated.

    You have a strange definition of a defeated enemy.

    This UN commission has been working with western nations cooperatively for decades. What has changed when Trump came to power?

    You're assuming that I ever thought western nations should cooperate with the UN.

    No defeated. If my team defeats another team we won, they were defeated but not gone. Under control is also a good description as well though.

    The UN needs to join the League of Nations in history as the failure that it is.

    You don’t really want a discussion. You are simply attempting to score points for your team, which is why you are being willfully blind.

    As long as a single member of ISIS exists, you will not concede that they are defeated. The fact is, the command structure of ISIS has been dealt a crippling blow and at this point, their sporadic attacks are simply a ‘hangman’s dance’ of sorts.

    ...but you don’t like Trump and cannot be objective, so i would have a better chance at jumping to the moon than convincing you anything that doesn’t fit your narrative. Everyone familiar with your partisan opinions knows exactly what you would be saying if Obama was making the claim. (Something to the tune of #BigWin #ObamaIsLit )

    that would not be the gargantuan unprecedented, unscaleable, impenetrable mega wall financed by Mexico trump promised his voters. it would be a moving of the goal posts.

    Oh, but it is.

    "We built that wall. They don't want to call it a wall, but believe me, it's a wall. The most beautiful wall you've ever seen."

    "Did Mexico pay for it? Of course they did. all the money we saved from deporting Mexicans was what we used, so you can see we clearly had Mexico pay for the wall. It's a good, good wall."

    Still undecided if I should take your word for it or stick with the opinion of the National Security Advisor.

    ISIS may have been dealt a crippling blow but they are still enough of a concern that Bolton feels the need for American troops to stick around and continue to fight them.
