  1. There you go, American arrogance at its best even when it’s clearly the transgressor.

    • Communists in America only vote for Democrats. I remind this to people. You can see their eyes light up. They’ve seen the light.

    • @D MAN – tacit implication – basic ‘consequences’, not Trump’s strong suit…

      jose arguijo What do You mean, technically no? Turkey is invading a sovereign country, where kurds have been fighting for their living space. Just like R Mcdud comments ”with approval of Trump”. Turkey oppresses kurds. Kurds fight for their existance and have helped americans to fight their oppressors, ISIS and Turkey. Now Erdogan sweet-talked and outfoxed Trump to withdraw American troops and let the play ground gate open for Erdogan to finish his own egotrip.

      D MAN isn’t it obvious. Erdogan called the jerk-in-command the day before his decision to withdraw the US troops. Maybe Erdogan said to him ” in your unmatched wisdom” – everybody else laughes at him but Trump takes flattery for real – and Trump paid a favour. ”I will withdraw our troops because you are so nice to me” . A laughing stock of the world, Trump is but the sad thing is, people die because of his stupidity and complacency. Devastating stuff.

    • Just the demonrats syndicate

  2. Fuc the mnuchin

    He is and his actions will never be forgiven

    • Plus his mouth is all wierd looking.

      John Dozier An author would describe it as ”his mouth is wide like a stable door, it is open for a stallion to have a ball. With innocent puppies it wipes the floor and never responds to a final call”.

    • There aren’t very many Republicans left that aren’t on the wrong side of History right now.

      They may be smiling on the way to the bank now, but our future generations will read and learn of their horrendous deeds in US History books.

    • Don’t disagree. Just love how what you wrote was still edited🤣

    • Although, I thought you were talking about trump. Pretender to the throne.

    He can shove his PR significant authorities.

  4. This administration is ridiculous. No normal government agencies function like this. No normal cabinet secretaries behave like this.

  5. So we abandon these people to a country who wants them dead, and are now surprised that they are being killed? makes sense

    • @Judith Aldridge The fact that Trump is transferring the responsibility of the Daesh prisoners to the Turks clearly shows his full betrayal of the Kurds. Trump has business interests in Turkey which means more to him than human lives.

    • Andrew Stupak did you know isis did more bombed in Turkey then any other country? Idiot

    • I live in the USA for 19 years. my best friends are Kurds. I am actually going to hang out with them right before I leave this comment. American people have no clue that neither kurts or turks want American and Israil to be there.

    • Judith Aldridge | October 12, 2019 at 5:11 AM | Reply

      @Michael Brown I fully agree with you.

    • ​@Judith Aldridge I would not be surprised if the Kurds were to release all of the Daesh prisoners. Who could blame them, they lost over 10,000 soldiers doing the dirty work, while fewer than 20 Americans died in this stupid war. The Trump towers in Turkey do not belong to the orange clown, he only got a million dollar + for giving them the right to use his name. I guess Trump is counting on more business in Turkey, to add some values to the lives of the Kurds he sold out.

  6. Is it just me, or does Mnuchin look like he sucks firehydrants to you as well?

    • @Gm Dave no that means you need to wipe your mouth. You have a little bit of obama dripping off your chin.

    • @Reg U the commonality is on their chins

      This stopped being about compromise when the President of the United States decided to verbally paint a target on the back of someone potentionally running against him. Open invite for countries hostile to our democracy to open up ops on a United States citizen. We’ll heal just fine. Our country is plenty resilient so by all that is remotely rational stop trivializing and thus supporting his criminal actions by trying to tell people how they should or shouldn’t feel about how f#@ked up this is. There is no compromising {let’s all just get along and say nice things} middle ground. This has nothing to do with party affiliation and everything to do with preserving the checks and balances between our branches of government that keep us a democracy and not a dictatorship.

  11. I still can’t believe that these corrupt, self serving parasites are running our government! INSANE! Such a joke!

    • @BigBlocksRock LOL at you trying to feign false equivalence between the 2 parties. They aren’t even close. Look at the number of indictments between Republicans and Democrats over the years, Republicans are far more corrupt than Democrats and it’s not even close, the number of indictments prove that. Also, remind me the last time any Democrat has ever been accused of what Trump and his cronies are accused of. Once again, not even close.

    • @BigBlocksRock I’d rather my tax dollars go to poor people who actually need and could use it versus the Corporate Welfare scam that the Republicans are in favor of. Giving tax breaks to Corporations and the top 1% don’t sit well with most people. Trickle down economics didn’t work before and they won’t work now.

      @CWS89 Ah, the “I’m Rubber, You’re Glue” argument. That’s okay, if you had a cogent response, or even an original thought rattling around in there you wouldn’t be a Trump supporter in the first place. I don’t even know you, and yet I know all I need to know about you. Sad!

  12. How does this robot speak without ever opening his mouth?

  13. Umm he okayed the military strike by his own actions he’s responsible!

  14. “WE ARE NOT ACTIVATING THE SANCTIONS!” This is just for show.

    • It really is! This is a lie, it is to push back the uproar and backlash Trump is receiving for betraying the trust of those that fought with and along side America to conquer ISSIS. This is for show, no Sanctions will ever be activated, its all lies. The Kurds are being slaughtered by Turkey right this moment all because of Trump self serving decisions!

    • Very true. Distract. Deflect. “Look here, people, over here. See what I’m doing.” At least there’s no talking impeachment. He really believes some Americans are too busy working four jobs at minimum wage , for example, to acknowledge and take note of the corruption of him and his enablers. Big miscalculation.

I am able to spend quality time with my family and friends and look after my children and also going on holiday with them very often. Don’t let pass this opportunity and make sure to react quick.
