  1. Why aren’t any journalists asking trump what favors he asked of Erdogan in return for doing what he wanted?

    • @ DMT Selfies …Because it’s all scripted, if these journalists were real journalists instead of paid actors pretending to be journalists they would be asking Trump why he just pimped out 3000 US soldiers to protect the oil interests the country he blamed for 911.

      “Who blew up the World Trade Center? It wasn’t the Iraqis….It was Saudi —
      take a look at Saudi Arabia, open the documents.” – Donald Trump

    Trumps got Twin towers in turkey
    Its all bussiness for him.
    He deserves to be stripped of power and hung

    • It is hanged. It is not like clothes, they are hung on hangers. Humans are executed by hanging. They are hanged.

    • Logical Conservative Yes the pipe bombs, mass shooting in Texas, killing in Charlottesville, the synagogue mass shooting and the domestic terrorism. ALL FROM THE NON VIOLENT RIGHT, you’ve certainly picked well. Or is it words and not actions that upset you?

    • Bert H Please don’t say that because innocent people would be killed for Trump’s stupidity and greed! Let’s hope the people who own the towers take off his name and he loses his revenue flow!

      @Swampy Congratulations! You win the Internet!

    • It’s “hanged,”, not “hung.” A picture is hung on the wall. A person is hanged. 🙂

    It’s hard to believe that we have a president that is this stupid.

    • Penny Hollifield | October 17, 2019 at 9:17 AM | Reply

      @Logical Conservative Listen sonny, I’ve been around a long time, & became aware of the Kurds’ plight since the 1st Gulf War (when I was an adult in my 30s). Again, you have the ignorant arrogance to tell me what I know/what I think. You love to project & stereotype, don’t you? I am done with you.

    • Logical Conservative | October 17, 2019 at 9:35 AM | Reply

      @Penny Hollifield
      “I’ve been around a long time”
      Irrelevant.
      “to tell me what I know”
      So bring facts that disprove my claims. Oh that’s right. You haven’t.
      The Turks and Kurds have been at odds long before we got there. Democrats have spit and railed against being the world police since at least 1963, so don’t start pretending you want to be, now. How many other conflicts are going on in the world? Where is your outrage that Obama’s actions in Libya re-ignited the African slave trade? What about socialism starving Venezuela? Oh that’s right. All those things have gone out of vogue and nobody cares anymore.
      Case closed.

    • vidsbyme

      Nothing good.

  5. Trump is in no position to be judging the Kurds.

      @david olong “you had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides.” Seems to be Trump’s constant star.

    • @Laurence Battin Laurence mate, You sound like Trump, commentating on Charlottesville in August 2017, Trump is no star General and a constant fool, He is a wannabe king, who has sacrificed his Queen, and because he hates to read and Check. his facts mate, he has now found himself in a check position where his opponent, has seized his opportunity as he the prime minister of Turkey studies reads facts and CHECKS mate.

    Trump is the exact reason abortion should be legal in all States.

  8. Who else suspects that Trump is taking orders from Putin on the Syria front?

    Putin is an ally of Assad, and Trump appears to be Putin’s puppet.

  9. Trump is a draft dodging coward with no intelligence or common sense. He is a Russian asset

    • Cornelius Tacitus | October 17, 2019 at 1:42 AM | Reply

      He’s an Israeli asset. Moscow has zero pull with Trump or within Washington. Trump’s son in law is his closest advisor.

    • @Mike C nov 9th. sixth floor.

    • @ Yo-yos Tenbucks ….”Sounded to me like Trumps a pretty honest guy”….If Trump was such an honest guy why is he pimping out 3000 US soldiers to protect the oil interests the country he blamed for 911?

    • It is not “Trump,“ it is “Trumpsky.“ Winner of the Russian Hero.

    Clown trump is the biggest dipsh*t to ever sit in the oval office.

    • Carsten Andersen as you mentioned that was 100 years ago, and that is what Armenians claim to be true. so it’s time to move on right? What’s the limit of going back in the history? Let’s go back 500 years or 2000 years perhaps 10000 years. We are discussing what’s happening in 2019 so that’s more important than what happens over 100 years ago.

      Except for Obama and Clinton you mean.

    So many children dying under this administration

    Pro life angels huh

  12. How can a US President talk like this.?

  13. Above All, United | October 16, 2019 at 5:33 PM | Reply

    I don’t think he’s sniffing what everyone else is smelling

    • @Janet McGibney Adderall?

    • @Hooyahfish I’m the daughter of a WWII vet & I’m so disgusted. He would be appalled. I want to thank you for standing up as a veteran for what’s just. Thank you for your service. I just don’t understand how Vets can support this fool.

    • @Crimdor What are you hallucinating about? The foreign trolls are pro trump….. Or are you another believer that the Russia scandal (6 felony convictions, 12 spawned additional investigations, 90 documented LIES about speaking to Russians from the Trump team, Manafort reporting weekly to a Russian oligarch, etc) was a hoax?

    • @Et x….Fox convinced struggling US citizens that the issue wasn’t that 90% of all our wealth was landing in the pockets of very few, but that immigrants (and women, and black people) were coming to steal the crumbs that the billionaires left over for them.

  14. We weren’t even fighting over land we were fighting ISIS.

  15. “Turkey has been wanting to do this for a long time.” Since when is that a valid reason? And Congress is just standing by and letting this happen.

    • Hector G. Voice of liberty not all of Congress just the GOP aka gluttony ole predators/ gansterous ole predators

  16. Just because you are *NO ANGEL* does not mean everyone else is like you.

    • Look at the history of the Kurds. They have been murdering the indigenous Christians of that region in order to control land. Their murderous reign began in 1914 and continues today. So no, they definitely aren’t angels, they’re more closely related to devils.

    • @A You And America slept with those devils when it was in it’s interests. That’s what America did with the Taliban, funded it, armed it and used it against the Russians and then discarded it. What a bunch of losers and hypocrites. Did you only learn that great truth about the kurds now?

    • A You And the Christians signed up with anyone they could, especially the British, to screw the Kurds, so nobody’s an angel.

    So sad we have a president that knows nothing about history.

    • Roelof Hopster | October 17, 2019 at 3:10 AM | Reply

      He doesn’t know anything about anything except corruption.

    • marvelousmarvin71 | October 17, 2019 at 5:53 AM | Reply

      Seems like you are forgeting history too, quite recent history at that.

    • Brett Garamella | October 17, 2019 at 8:09 AM | Reply

      @health seekers home We are dealing with a terrorist organization. The US and Kurds both want to get rid of it. Obviously we don’t want to endanger innocent civilians. It was a mistake, but you have to stand your ground and fight this terrorist group. Knowing the history of what has happened to the Kurds, what is the alternative?

  18. Sniffling once again. The swine is higher than a kite.

  19. This does not take the blood off of his hands, and that’s children’s blood.

    He’s using anti-US rhetoric by Russia, PRC and their cohorts

    • As did Tulsi Gabbard at the CNN debates. That was, shall we say… *’curious’* , indeed. 🤔

    • Cornelius Tacitus | October 17, 2019 at 1:40 AM | Reply

      He uses a lot of rhetoric, often without knowing the origin of memes. What he actually DOES has little to do with what he SAYS. I wouldn’t put too much stock in his rhetoric.
