Pride of Trump - Warning: footage of Turkish supported militia slaughtering Kurds who are sitting on ground

Recommended Posts

Trump throwing out all kinds of conspiracy gibberish to Graham's base in South Carolina.  International embarrassment? No worries.  just shout out the oldie hits: (Obama, Comey, etc) and coordinate with Hannity & Co to repeat it during Fox evening programming:

 

President Trump on Wednesday fired back at close ally Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) over Graham's criticism of Trump's withdrawal from Syria, arguing the senator should focus on investigating the 2016 election instead of the Middle East.

 

"Lindsey Graham would like to stay in the Middle East for the next thousand years with thousands of soldiers and fighting other people's wars. I want to get out of the Middle East," Trump said at a joint press conference with the Italian president.

 

Trump said Graham should focus on his role as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee investigating allegations of corruption during the 2016 election involving Obama administration officials. The president suggested he look into former President Obama, former CIA Director James Brennan, former FBI Director James Comey and others, alleging without evidence that they acted corruptly in the lead-up to his electoral victory.

 

"That’s what Lindsey ought to focus on," Trump said. "That's what the people of South Carolina want him to focus on." "The people of South Carolina don't want us to get into a war with Turkey, a NATO member, over Syria," Trump added. "Let them fight their own wars."

 

The senator dug in upon hearing of Trump's criticism, tweeting that he will "NEVER be quiet" on matters of national security. "The worst thing any Commander in Chief can do is to give land back to the enemy that was taken through blood and sacrifice," Graham tweeted. "I fear those are the consequences of the actions being taken right now."

Watch out -- another hit for journalism:

 

ABC correspondent Ian Panell reported on Sunday that the video “obtained by ABC News, appears to show the fury of the Turkish attack on the border town of Tal Abyad two nights ago.”  The pictures show massive explosions lighting up the night sky. But it turns out ABC may have been hoodwinked, according to its own account.

 

A tweet issued by ABC News on Monday morning reads: “CORRECTION: We’ve taken down video that aired on ‘World News Tonight’ Sunday and ‘Good Morning America’ this morning that appeared to be from the Syrian border immediately after questions were raised about its accuracy. ABC News regrets the error.”

 

According to National Review, the alleged error was uncovered by social media users who compared the supposed combat footage to a YouTube video of a Kentucky military show — and it appears to be identical. (National Review credited Gizmodo with first reporting on the alleged error and publishing the videos side by side for comparison.)  ABC’s correction is the right move, of course. But I don’t think that’s the end of the story. It’s yet another in a long series of pretty serious media mistakes that never should have happened — and, arguably, would not have if appropriate journalistic standards had been deployed.

"3rd rate politician"  LOL, that would still leave Pelosi as 10x more capable than him.  Pelosi has kicked Trump's ass at pretty much every turn.

 

Meanwhile, Trump again shows he's an impulsive idiot, who cannot self-regulate.  It's awesome watching Trump's cowed repubs flanking him while he's ranting. They make that cold stare-to-nowhere look, just hoping this nightmare would end. LOL.

This what triggered Trump's meltdown.  Republicans in the House vote against him.

 

The House on Wednesday approved a resolution formally rebuking President Trump over his decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria.

 

The measure passed in a 354-60 vote, with four lawmakers voting present. All 60 votes against the resolution came from Republicans, with the present votes coming from three GOP lawmakers and Rep. Justin Amash. The top three House Republicans supported the motion in a rare split from the president.

Trump clarified his position on this issue in his presser with the Italian PM. He said that all the groups involved, Assad Syrians, Kurds, Turks, Russians all hate ISIS. That is the main issue. He said the best way to deal with these countries is economically. That way nobody dies. 

 

As I said before a very liberal approach and libtards hate liberal ideas. 

 

I brought this issue up quite some time ago that Trump does not mind Russia straining their resources in a wasteful military campaign. He is right.
