Trump startled a lot of us when he said, "NATO is obsolete" in 2016. Here's where we are now. @PaulRLePage1https://t.co/IjuDdKyGU0

@greenfield64 The scruples of the GOP have gone south under Trump.

@greenfield64 I can no longer explain anything to anyone under 30... @40AcresBuilt ...and turning them into cesspools. @MaxBoot @AC360 @PostOpinions That will be an easy argument to make Max!

@KlausRieneck Yes, but ever more laws will not protect people from their own gullibility. Exposing stuff like this here may help somewhat.This is such a destructive, corrosive political message, no matter which side is touting it. https://t.co/OdOtdo2OnU

Thanks. @olgaNYC1211 This seems to have changed recently. @KlausRieneck I thought it was largely due to the need for natural gas coming from Russia after coal burning was cut back in the 1990's.
