Obama acts, Trump reacts

Trump says get on with bigger and more important things than cybercrime but will take some time next week to meet with our intelligence folks.

First real threat slugged off.

That would do although sluff is an alternative spelling.

If we're getting picky (as we are wont to do), it should be alternate, not alternative.

And couldn't you have avoided all this back-and-forth by using an alternate verb? Shrugged off is easy to spell, and can mean to dismiss as unimportant.

Let's you and her fight.
I enjoy reading NorthAmerican's posts. So well-written and interesting except for the dull parts.--Nines

Oh pooh NA. I'm on a bloody phone cause my computer has no working keyboard. I am lucky anything I write makes any sense at all.

And today Trump praised smart man Putin. At what point does this become treason?
