How sweet.

President Trump doesn’t want the kids to worry. Mommy and Daddy still love each other. They’re just disagreeing, right now.

Something like that.

So hopeful.

Now I just want to hug something.

I really do like the added, messianic promise of “lasting peace” tossed in, at the end. Who knew that for the world to become a utopia, we just needed the touch of a philandering, serial adulterer and reality TV crook to do what the Christians that supported this man have been taught will only happen when King Jesus returns?

Say… You don’t think…

Nah. The “Cheeto Jesus” thing only works for the most indoctrinated.

Meanwhile, here in reality, everybody is pretty aware by now of just how tense last week’s tomahawk strike against Syria has made U.S. – Russia relations.

Even Trump knows.

During a press conference Wednesday, Trump refrained from criticizing Putin directly but declared that the U.S.-Russia relationship “may be at an all-time low” after a U.S. missile strike on a Syrian airfield where the gas attack is believed to have originated.

Trump also lauded China for abstaining from a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning what the U.S. and its allies said was Assad’s decision to use chemical weapons on his own citizens in the country’s yearslong civil war. China often sides with Russia on Security Council votes.

We can assume Trump’s latest tweet on the matter has more to do with straddling the fence with voters, who are split on the issue of whether the Syria strike was the right thing to do, or not.

Trump spent so much time praising Putin during the run up to the election, as well as calling for a warmer relationship with them, that these new tensions seem foreign.

But, hey… At least nobody is talking about Russian collusion, anymore.
