But are the stories true? Politics isn't a football game of popularity contest. How would you feel it, Trump, if we had a nuclear war?

The MSM has been on a riot of anti-Trump stories because they're reporting the NEWS - and the NEWS is every time we wake up, the dotard-in-chief has done/said/tweeted something absolutely, positively APPALLING.
Thanks from Athena and Clara007

I have heard Trump is hurting human rights around the world. Is the link true or false?

Activists at Amnesty International have catalogued 100 ways Donald Trump’s administration has threatened human rights at home and abroad during the first 100 days of his presidency. Assembling the list, according to the group’s U.S. head, “didn’t take long.”

Amnesty USA executive director Margaret Huang said the new list of Trump threats highlights a “level of abuse and fear” that’s unprecedented in the grassroots organization’s 55-year history. It stands in stark contrast to a White House tally of claimed accomplishments since Trump’s inauguration in January.

“Unlike his predecessors, who have at least rhetorically talked about the importance of human rights as a U.S. national interest, this president has been dismissive of human rights, dismissive of communities who’ve been subjected to some of the worst violations, and has rejected efforts to hold other governments or his own appointments accountable for protecting human rights,” Huang told HuffPost on Thursday.

It took Amnesty staffers just “a few days” in “a really easy effort” to assemble 100 human rights threats by the Trump administration, Huang said. In fact, “we had to pare it down,” she added.

Trump has armed, emboldened and repeatedly failed to condemn human rights abusers. He has downplayed hate crimes and proposes potentially devastating funding cuts to foreign aid. He also has issued direct threats to some demographics, including those within the U.S.

NK, Mianmar, Pakistan, Syria, Cuba... i.e. have been violating human rights long before Trump considered running.
Think about the women in Afghanistan under the Taliban. Women ins SA are just now being allowed to drive.
Do you remember the Tiananmen Square protests? Prague Spring?
Iranian protests? The Rwandan genocide?

Wear a Chey Guevara shirt on campus, get treated as an enlightened hero. Wear a MAGA hat, get attacked. Truth be damned.
