Bloody Kurds, they're getting what they deserve for not helping with the invasion at Normandy...

 

Mark Meadows thinking, "Oh <deleted>, we're screwed."

 

 

So, he really did say that. Every time I hear a report of Trump saying something outlandish, childish, ignorant, my first reaction is to think it's just something being exaggerated, made up, or twisted to make him look bad. But you go to the source, and I'll be damned if it doesn't turn out to be for real 99 percent of the time.

They did not hate the US, but things may have changed now. What has Afghanistan to do with the Kurds?

Ah but maybe Thomas J is right, the Kurds didn't help us with the Normandy landings (Yes it appears the idiot really did say this) which is a clear sign that the Kurds hated the USA!

 

How did they find enough morons in the US to elect Trump..............Oops I forgot we've managed to get Johnson..........more or less same same, although Johnson probably knows that the Kurds don't live in Europe.

"Turkey's operation in northeastern Syria is a result of steps taken by U.S. in this region," Lavrov said. He added that Russia warned the U.S. of "not playing a Kurdish card" while making Kurdish and Arab tribes to come face to face. The minister reminded the reporters that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin had a talk prior to the operation. Now, we will try to establish a dialogue between Damascus and Ankara. We think this is in the interest of both sides," he added."

 

Lavrov said Russia also will put efforts to foster dialogue between Syrian regime and YPG/PKK.

Trump cast his decision as in line with his long-held belief that the United States cannot be the world's policeman and must bring some troops home.

 

DoD says deployments in the Middle East are up 20,000 this year to 60,000 in total.

 

 

And the president annoucned sending more (2,000 - 3,000) troops to Saudi Arabia. (Hearing from merchant seamen in the U.S. that there are plenty of slots now for ships bringing supplies to KSA.)

 

But are you ready...Saudi Arabia has agreed to pay for the troops.

 

Can't wait to see the MoU and payment schedule on this one.

 

So much for promises kept, bringing troops home. Pfft.

There's always a video, audio or a tweet. Often all three.

 

It's hard to round them up, esp.. in a format suitable for posting here, but it best to just show the raw video or tweet. Defenders are then left with little defense, other than "he was just joking", or "he was trolling the media".

 

It would be nice to post excerpts from his two most recent rallies: Minneapolis, Lake Charles, LA. They are quite shocking in that he's turned up the bombast to 11, and looks like a madman.

 

Note that after apologizing for his behavior on the Access Hollyowod tape, he immediately began telling confidants that the tape was "doctored".

He is confident His Faithful will not watch the fake news/corrupt mainstream media, keeping a strict diet of Fox News and screwball conspiracy sites.  How can he be joking when he has no sense of humor?

He (and a lot of other right-wing politicians propped up by Fox) are depending on the viewers to be easily confused and losing interest. Saying something, and then moments later contradicting it works a charm.  (that thing Rudy played on Cuomo on CNN 2 weeks ago was right out of Monty Python)  Funny moment in the 2015-16 campaign when Ted Cruz accused DT of using this tactic, which is how Cruz himself plays it.

I'm waiting for one of them to come out and proclaim this is simply Trump making another masterful move in his game of 4-D chess and we are too stupid to see what he's actually doing.

Actually I still somewhat suspect that he is on his own mission to destroy the Republican Party, some act of vengeance because he was once snubbed or something like that, and his own words and deeds have become so convoluted he's lost his own thread.  He is supposed to have been a Democrat right up to The Day of the Escalator.  But take this with a few grains of salt, plus a shot of tequila (the hallucinogenic kind).  Already I get the impression that no one calls the GOP 'the party of Lincoln' anymore.

 

In the series Veep it turns out one of the entourage kept a journal of everything (and then lost it); asked why he wrote all that he said that they were telling so many lies that he had to write down the truth in case he forgot it.  "Note to self..." Donnie!  You would think that somebody who lies so much would be better at it, no?

It's easy for them, Trump said it crystal clear, it's all a matter of money, period

- the Kurds were paid to fight against jihadists and ISIS

- now the US are paid by the Saudis to defend S.A economic interests

What has 9/11 to do with that?

Wow, so I watched, he really did not say what you refered to. Maybe other lies have been ascribed to him? Fake news?
