1. “You’re so much better than I was, in so many ways.” Touching. I wonder if he shed any tears when a CIA drone killed a 16-year-old American citizen on his watch without any shred of due process.

      1. Pump the brakes, Paulo. You’re getting indignant with someone who agrees with you. The killing of a citizen isn’t worse; it’s just bad for a different reason. It is a decision to ignore the constitution that this man (whose supporters like to note is a Constitutional scholar) swore to protect and defend. The civilian toll from drone strikes is horrific, to be sure. Combined with wholesale lawlessness it’s worse.

        This kind of theater is a great way to make people with a conscience forget about what their vote supports.

    1. I’m confused – his staff don’t deserve thanks for their hard work because a drone fucked up? Was he supposed to tell them ‘we’re done now, fuck off’?

      1. The point is that these “human” moments feed into a caluclated narrative that distracts constituents from the horrible things that the people running our country do.

  2. thats really sweet of him to thank the people who worked so hard for him. its also nice to see a politician be so humbled.
