Trump Just Wrote the Truest Tweet of His Presidency
On Saturday, President Trump wrote what very well could be the truest tweet of his presidency.
“If anybody but your favorite President, Donald J. Trump, announced that, after decimating ISIS in Syria, we were going to bring our troops back home (happy & healthy), that person would be the most popular hero in America,” he wrote. “With me, hit hard instead by the Fake News Media. Crazy!”
Does anyone doubt for a second that he’s 100% right? We’re used to watching Democrats and liberals change their tune at the drop of a hat, but their reaction to the Syria pullout has been nothing less than disgraceful. These idiots have been screaming about American imperialism for the better part of a quarter-century! These morons have gone as far as to call for international war tribunals for Cheney and Bush! They have been decrying our Middle Eastern presence since the day after 9/11.
And now, when a president finally begins to make inroads towards bringing those conflicts to an end, they say he’s a child throwing a tantrum? They say there are no more “adults in the room?” We say Michael Moore the other day saying he’s only now truly “frightened” with James Mattis out of the government. Who ARE these people? And where were they when the very same James Mattis was fired by Obama for being too focused on the threat from Iran – a focus that was getting in the way of Obama’s increasingly-cozy relationship with the Islamic regime over there?
NOW these people are concerned that Iran will have the run of the place in Syria? None of this makes any sense at all, and one cannot possibly take it seriously.
Trump slammed media reports that treated the resignation of U.S. envoy Brett McGurk – an Obama appointee who was already past his expiration date – as a big deal.
“Brett McGurk, who I do not know, was appointed by President Obama in 2015. Was supposed to leave in February but he just resigned prior to leaving. Grandstander?” Trump tweeted. “The Fake News is making such a big deal about this nothing event!”
Of course they are, because everything is a big deal in the Trump era. Well, everything except the booming economy. Everything except that historic criminal justice bill that just got passed. Everything except the Republican tax cuts. No, only the stuff that (supposedly) puts this president in a bad light. That’s the only thing the media cares about, and then they turn around and feign offense when Trump calls them out on it.
We should be used to these hypocritical double standards by now. Even after all this time, though, the sheer brazenness of the fake news sticks in our craw.
