NATO Nonsense

It just never seems to end.  The mainstream media just twists and lies and so do the Democrats.  Everything Trump is bad in their book, even if they have to make it up as they go along to justify things.

Today's episode of the ongoing media soap opera, "Trump is Always Wrong" starts in Brussels where the President gave a speech to the members of NATO.  President Trump said in his speech that the USA is strongly committed to NATO.  This horrified some in the media and among Democrats, but not for the reason you might suspect.  They are upset because President Trump did not specifically state that he accepts Article 5 of the NATO treaty which states that an attack on one NATO member is considered to be an attack on all NATO members.  According to these "experts", Trump questioned that provision during the campaign, so by failing to make the statement in Brussels that he now accepts that article of the treaty, he is implicitly rejecting it.

It's hard even to right the explanation of the media criticism with a straight face.  It's just another moronic episode of media bias and general dishonesty.  Think about it.  NATO is not a country or an ethnic group.  NATO exists only as a result of the NATO treaty.  President Trump said today that America is strongly committed to NATO.  Needless to say, that means the USA is strongly committed to the NATO treaty.  These morons, however, are trying to twist a statement of support for NATO into a rejection of the NATO treaty.  That makes about as much sense as arguing that if someone says "I love and support the United States of America" it really means that the person is rejecting the Constitution which is the document under which the USA exists.  I don't think so.  Even the crazies on the left have to be embarrassed at this nonsense.
