Trump Officially Worse Than Obama With Drones

The worst thing about Donald Trump is that he’s making former president Barack Obama look better in comparison, especially when it comes to drones.

Since taking office, Trump has increased the number of drone strikes by 432 percent! He’s managed to approve more drone strikes in one week than Obama had in a year. And that number is set to only grow now that he’s going to scrap Obama’s drone strike restrictions.

You’d think more Americans would be more upset at the increased carnage being carried out by our own military against civilians overseas. But of course, everybody being targeted by these strikes are brown foreigners rather than white Americans, so—hey!—who cares, amirite?! /s

Sigh. To think there are more people with their undies in a twist that a video game critic failed to give a perfect score to the new Zelda game—to the point where’s he’s been inundated with death threats!

Perhaps this is why we Americans are so apathetic to foreign policy? After all, if we're willing to threaten someone with death over a video game, why should we bat an eye when our own military so carelessly carries out the deaths of countless innocent civilians?

Our violent culture is sure one hell of a drug!
