    They'd be flipping out if the group did ANYTHING but head straight there at full speed and making a single stop.

    It's not like they have much to work with here - what are they going to do, side with North Korea?

    Oh they are ...
    Gizmodo had an article and 99% if the follow up comments were progressive frothing at the mouth
    - Trump LIED
    - Carrier not headed to Korea anytime soon



    like until the carrier is off the Coast - Trumps a lair
    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    Which is weird because if you go by that, then virtually everyone at defense lied about it.
    On the face of it, it becomes a "lie" because what the Pentagon said didn't align with what the press thought it meant.

    You know, they're REALLY going to have to pick their battles better.
    I don't care how much people hate Trump, when the news story is about Trump telling Christie "you HAVE to try the meat loaf" or Kellyanne having her feet on the couch - how is anyone going to take you seriously?

    They think if they just hit every facet, they'll win points.
    It means people who hate him will love every morsel - but everyone else is going to eventually ignore it.

    I like the battles they pick. Helps show how wrong and really stupid they are.

    Trump is headed to a 2nd Term at this point

    Depends on what your definition of the word "is" is.

    Saw that. He said it will be going there when he decides it should go there, but it will be going.

    Liberals should tread carefully over splitting hairs over precise interpretation of words - it's bitten them in the ass before.

    My wife goes to church every Sunday - by way of Dunkin' Donuts - which is in the opposite direction.
    If she says she's going to church, I KNOW she's going to DD first, but she is still going there.

    Only liberals would wet themselves because the group isn't steaming there directly.
    Heck, they must think the carrier group can move 100 miles an hour by sea the way they've bellyached.

    Apparently both Russia and China are taking it seriously, since they've both taken measures - which aren't cheap - in preparation.
    Only American liberals are whining about this, but - whining is their native language.
    Stealing it.
