    And can you still support him?

    Consider these two events:

    1) Trump asserts that he would have never allowed the CIA to recruit Kim Jong Un's brother (despite later attempts to claim that is not what he 'meant')

    2) Trump explicitly and without apology asserts that he will take dirt on a political opponent from any foreign power or foreign adversary that provides it:

    This was the President of the United States -- the man charged with protecting the Constitution, American democracy and the Western world -- sitting at the Resolute desk in the Oval Office, saying he would accept damaging information from Russia and China on his 2020 opponent.

    So I wait. Can you continue to support a president that is so completely willing to publicly and without apology undermine our intelligence community and our democratic process?

    You're way too invested in the whole 'Trump is eeevil' thing to have a sensible conversation with about this. Sorry.

    Promising a cancer cure and risking the US security intelligence are two different things.

    Jim you mean like the Clinton campaign using Russian sources for the infamous dossier?

    Nope, not like that at all. First your characterization of the dossier is not accurate, but more importantly, this is an open request from a sitting president for foreign adversaries to affect a public election. That is unparalleled, it has no analogue in US history I know of, certainly not any previous candidate in my lifetime. the Dossier, at best, is a mere stepping stone on the journey to what the president just embraced openly, publicly.

    But I see that so far the TWEB pro-trump actors are not yet even willing to even admit this is a bad thing - with the possible exception of MM whose post I've not looked at (yet?).

    How far the Republicans on TWEB have fallen. 3 Years ago no person alive in public office could have done the two things listed without evoking the most intense rebuke and scrutiny from those who have posted thus far in this thread.

    inch by inch, compromise by compromise, you are losing your principles over this man.

    Jim, this is nonsense. The only campaign that actually did use foreign sources against their opponent was the Clinton campaign, using a British national to do it. No mis-characterization here.
