Trump Fumbles Words to National Anthem

quote [ Along with the fans in attendance was President Donald Trump who was present at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. According to a report in TIME, Trump's attendance was seen as an opportunity to protest as groups like the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP (The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) and Refuse Fascism had planned demonstrations and protests in and outside of the venue.

However, what caught the world's attention was how the president miserably failed at singing the National Anthem. ]

None of that addresses anything I said, Norok. That explains at best why YOU are resistant to the idea.

Please, humor me. Assume I am not looking to take out Trump so my side wins. To my mind, Pence is far worse politically. He's a dominionist and it seems his sense of social justice is somewhere in the 1950's. Unlike Trump, he could have political support that he could easily exploit within his party (damn near lock step.)

Now, I get where you are coming from. Pence, an establishment Republican would just be another way of trying to discredit his achievements and is just as unacceptable as any democrat.

But here is the thing... to me? That's not true. Pence is an existential horror to me an atheistic secular rationalist. I'd prefer that Trump continue to flounder getting not much done rather than Pence be in place and get work done that I will hate.

And here I am, saying I think Pence is the better option right now, because as much as that asshole bothers me, I am pretty sure he's not going crazy or demented. He would not pose nearly as much a risk to our long term security if he was allowed to be alone with foreign leaders.

There is a point where there are more important things than how I feel about the president's politics. This is that.

Fuck dude, if possible to find, I would say okay to someone literally a carbon copy of Trump stances to replace him, if that is what it took. The issue for me, right now, is the man, and not his politics.
