Crimes committed by Muslims will be proof of a pan-Islamic plot and Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand, crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of mentally ill lone wolves who do not represent their professed belief system at all.
The probability of someone secretly participating in homosexual acts is directly proportional to the frequency and loudness of their publicly professed disapproval and/or disgust for homosexuality.
If Donald Trump accuses an individual of malfeasance without evidence, it is almost a certainty either he or someone associated with him has in fact committed that very same malfeasance to a greater degree.

The red hat capacity for cognitive dissonance is remarkable.

Trump hires the best people because he's a great businessman, not a politician, so he recognizes talent!

Also, the record breaking turnover in his Administration is because all those people he hired were stupid, lazy and incompetent!

Ah, context...
The biting words came after Tillerson, in an appearance at a charity event in Houston, said their relationship soured over Trump’s repeated demands that Tillerson do things that were illegal.

“So often, the president would say, ‘Here’s what I want you to do, and here’s how I want you to do it,’ ” Tillerson said at a fundraiser for the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, in his first public remarks about his truncated tenure since he was let go in March.

“And I would have to say to him, ‘Mr. President, I understand what you want to do. But you can’t do it that way. It violates the law,’ ” he said.
...
In his remarks, Tillerson did not offer any specific examples of which requests he deemed illegal. He said he offered to work to change the law, but that apparently did not curb Trump’s frustration.

“I’d say, ‘Here’s what we can do,’ ” Tillerson said. “ ‘We can go back to Congress and get this law changed. And if that’s what you want to do, there’s nothing wrong with that.’ I told him, ‘I’m ready to go up there and fight the fight, if that’s what you want to do.’ ”
Everything for the cat.

So basically Trump says another stupid thing on twitter. I wonder what news he is trying to overshadow this time? Maybe the stuff about it looks like we might be heading for another recession?

This is a very satisfying and plausible explanation.

Between this, Tucker getting Coulter-pissed enough to air his beef ("He's not going far enough! Damn him!"), and a more-than-possible John Kelly resigning... I feel a draft.

Is it fresh air? Time will tell.

Yeah, Austria-Hungary and Germany were just trying to create a European army. That’s the sole reason for both wars. And it didn’t work out, so that’s game over I guess.

Shall we tell him how nationalism worked out for Europe?
