Mattis and Trump need to answer for the F-22s damaged/lost at Tyndall. Shameful that there wasn't a contingency plan to get them trucked out before the hurricane. Hurricanes happen on the Gulf Coast. How does our readiness and preparation not involve a plan to move extremely expensive and important aircraft when threatened by a high-end Hurricane???
Keesler Air Force base on the Mississippi Gulf Coast dispersed all of its aircraft in less than 48 hours when Hurricane Katrina's track shifted west a few hundred miles in a 12-24 hour period. Obviously, the rest of the government's response to that disaster was dismal...

Overall, the base was devastated with close to $1 billion in damage but that did not include any aircraft.

From what I'm reading, the FEMA response has been really bad. Lots of small inland communities devastated with no assistance.

When does that agency perform to a standard that is acceptable? Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Maria, 2016 Louisiana Floods, Hurricane Michael, etc...

The kids in "cages" happened while Barry was president.
PR is a territory run by corrupt liberals for decades. They did receive aid.
Rome was not built in a day and NK will not disarm overnight. Give the man time. He looks dumb to people that don't know what they are talking about.
The FBI deserved it and then some.
No it was not.
Because it contained funding for the military including a pay raise. said he would not sign another bill like it. We will see about that.

Face it, we are much better off as a nation than we were 20 months ago.

Each F-22 costs circa $350 MILLION a piece. But that actually understated their value because production is over and they can't be replaced. Really hope all are repairable. Nonetheless, it never should've happened.

Weren't the planes left behind there for repair? Maybe the could not be flown out in that short of an amount of time.

Absolutely no excuse for this. Heads need to roll. What a terrible blow to our national defense.

I mean how hard is it to correctly spell one of the most common names in the English language? It is rare when I see Michael spelled correctly.

Not sure why there is so much inclination to claim Native heritage. Like, okay? And?

It’s almost like people who are vegans. That’s the first thing you ever know about them. And they somehow use that as a status symbol or something...

It really does. She played right into his hands and stooped to his level.

She should also know that you have to be a porn star to expect to make Trump actually pay up.
According to Trump she has to win the nomination and submit to testing by his service.

This entire thing is laughable and stupid and so Trump. Shame on Warren for taking part in it. It’s just more of reducing politics to the tmz level.

Warren's lying about her heritage for decades, likely to try to gain an advantage, is the only reason this is even around to be a story.

I don't think it makes Trump look good to get into these dumb quarrels. I don't think it makes American politics look good to have something like this be mainstream news. All this proves is that Warren is your typical sleazy politician.

I've never understood the coddling of the Saudi government. For the last couple of decades, both Republicans and Democrats have turned a blind eye to their exportation of radical Islamic terrorism...and their involvement in 9/11. Obama relentlessly defended the Saudi monarchy. Trump is continuing this. Can he change his tune and be as tough as he was on some of our allies during the trade negotiations?
