Both Clinton and Biden have since, apologized for their votes for H.J. Res. 114 because they did not think at the time that President Bush would use it as an excuse to invade Iraq. The irony is that now the vote is being used against President Obama's vice president in the same manner he used it against his 2008 primary opponent.
In the Trump era, time runs faster. That can be a good or bad thing. The sooner Trump's four years are over will be a massive relief to most Americans and people around the world. However, as days and weeks speed by, many events that would haunt a politician to his grave are too quickly forgotten.
TRUMP: "All I can say is that families should count their lucky stars that their loved ones died in the military while I was president."
In a way, much of America seems to be just stunned, standing in the middle of a house where an orange-faced arsonist is pouring gasoline everywhere and threatening to drop the (Nazi) torch he's carrying if he gets mad enough.
Skeptics in the press corps questioned Trump on both the fictional basis of the weapon and the decades that building such a massive ship would take to which Trump replied, "That's just more fake news. The Death Star is real, we have it, it's up there, and Mexico paid for it."
Trump declared that it is important for the world to see the US perform its responsibility to appear as a moral leader and that he hopes they appreciated this performance...also mentioning that it's available same day on Blue Ray, DVD and pay per view.
With such an unpopular and xenophobic agenda so desperately desired, might not Trump and Bannon see it to their advantage if a terrorist attack did take place and a frightened public fell in line behind whatever they wanted to do?

What could be more Republican than appearing on the biggest Russian-controlled propaganda network to denigrate America's democracy, its free press and provide cover and support for Russian attempts to sabotage and manipulate America's election process? A lot...if you're not Donald Trump.
Republicans have been lobbying Trump to change his campaign persona into a "more presidential" one, to go by a script and stop saying incendiary things. In other words, they want Trump to pull a bigger con on the American public than he has been, deceiving voters into thinking he's not the sociopath he really is.
