I wonder if Trump knows that shouting "9/11" at the top of your lungs isn't actually a legal argument.

It is exactly what people are doing when asked "What's the legal basis for deploying ground troops to Syria?"

Pretty much. The post-9/11 AUMF seems to be treated as authorization to get involved in any fight where at least one combatant is either a Muslim or has Muslim friends.

Well if they're brown, they're probably friends with the Muslims.

There are a lot of people out there who think Truman was a great President. Most of them are left/green. I would love to shove this in their faces with the admonition "Remember that anything the government does for you, it eventually will do to you."

Of course. As long as those 'millions' of illegal voters were kept from casting ballots.

I recall reading a theory somewhere -- dunno if a professional pundit, someone commenting here or on another forum, or what -- but the theory was that Trump does not "lie" in the sense of saying things he knows to be untrue; it's more that if he says it he believes it, as though he thinks he can make his own reality or something. Whoever came up with that theory, I daresay this story lends credence to it.
