    Maybe electing a reality TV host who dodged the draft was a bad idea…

  2. I think I am crazy or I am dreaming all of this. Is these things happening? Seriously?!

      REMEMBER HOW OBAMA GAVE TERRORIST THAT KILLED AMERICANS BILLIONS? TRUMP KILLS TERRORIST THAT KILL AMERICANS AND YOU HATE HIM. OBAMA GIVES TERRORIST MONEY AND YOU PRAISE HIM. YOU ARE A TRAITOR OF AMERICA.

    • @DankNDoughnuts Calling Iran’s military a terrorist organization is a big part of the problem. They’re not and have never been, the billion dollars Obama gave was for the Iran nuclear deal, which Iran had been following until TRUMP for no reason pulled us out.

      In 2014 were on great terms with Iran and they’ve been cooperating with us to fight ISIS, (they’ve actually been doing the majority of the fighting and we just support from the sidelines.) But pulling out the deal wasn’t enough for Trump since then he’s been constantly needlessly escalating tensions with Iran, imposing sanctions, labeling their military terrorist, and finally airstriking their fucking general.

      Now we’re on the brink of an all out war with the middle East’s super power because of Trump’s dumbass.

      @Will Reese Brink of an all out war😂🤣😅 where did you hear that? CNN? The same ones that told you for three years they have proof of crimes on Trump, impeachable proof on Trump. Wake up fool you are being lied to. They have tried to push Trump into war with Russia, Syria, Afghanistan and now with the coordinated attack on the embassy. He has resisted every DeepState attempt to get him in a war. The left cheered for the attack calling it Trump’s Benghazi. Y’all want Americans to die to get Trump out. You are sick sick people that need help. Obama paid terrorist. Trump kills terrorist.

  4. Was eric in charge of the letter?

  5. Has anyone check with Putin about what is going on ?…. he’s being awfully quiet about all this !!!!

      Kenny Olivier you’re in denial. Wake up! You helped elect a moron.

      dady dad duh 🙄

    • Well, of course! Trump consulted with and got permission from Putin!

    • Putin is smiling widely. He’s been hacking both Iranians and Americans to create deep divides in their societies, to weaken them. Who gave the President the idea that attacking Soleimani would be a good idea? Who knew many in the Middle East would be furious with the USA for assasinating a general successfully fighting ISIS? How could The Stable Genius miss this?

  6. I love his answer when asked how imminent of a threat and he completely danced around it

  9. Elect a clown, get a circus. Deplorable!

  10. Hes gone off the deep end since the impeachment vote

    • oh make no mistake that he didnt see this impeachment coming and prepare for it long ago. He has never been in this for the money, or even his position – he’s in it for the glory -He wants to go down as one of the most powerful “leaders” in the history of all mankind.

    • at any, and all cost

      ​@Bucket Head Then why would he be trying to take America down with him now if he saw it coming “long ago”?

  11. Mr Magoo leaving a trail of destruction in his wake. Can some one find his letter of resignation? That is the only one I’m interested in.

    • @Bucket Head it’s been awhile since he has responded….I hope I didn’t scare him off by asking for a civil conversation

    • I’ll write it for him and just get him to pull out his sharpie and sign it.

      DankNDoughnuts : if you support trump YOU are the traitor. Putting party before country is all you Are concerned with.

  12. She needs to stop saying “caving to Iraq”. If a sovereign nation tells you to leave the country through a majority government decision you don’t have a choice but to agree lol. That isn’t caving

  13. Briefed several times a day? Hard to concentrate on national affairs when you’ve got a long putt to deal with.

  14. Does this remind anyone about “weapons of mass destruction “??

  15. “the troops are coming home…SIKE! HAHAHA we are never leaving the middle East” – trump

  16. Does Pompeo look like and sound like a person who’s been hypnotized?

    • zoinks! someone been diggin deep in them Scooby Snacks

    • yeah, with a hand up his butt

    • @Grim Reefer HA! and his mouth closed while someone else throws their voice in his direction

    • V S You are so Correct, Pompeo is talking fast, more so than usual, he is not wanting to answer any question. He goes into a hyper mode, trying to explain what’s going on…….He Knows More than what he is saying or admitting too……He has to stand by Trump, it’s pressure for him! Period.

      Soleimani was caught with the head of a terrorist organization, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis who founded Kataib Hezbollah which was the very group that attacked the U.S. embassy in Baghdad when they both got droned in the same car.

      So Soleimani was caught red-handed with the very guy directing the Benghzai-style terrorist attack on the U.S. embassy, just like in Benghazi and Tehran before. What was Soleimani doing in Baghdad far from his home in Iran with a terrorist leader?

      There was nothing legitimate about his presence in Baghdad right after the U.S. embassy by Kataid Hezbollah. He got what he deserved being droned with al-Muhandis.

    “The Russian puppet” lost his last marble! And he only had one!

  19. “Increasingly unhinged” is an understatement. The very fact this nut job uses twitter to notify Congress of his silly intent to declare war is ludicrous.

      @NateMcBrady probably most of of it. We will have to wait a day or two for the retractions and apologies to come out.

    • If Obama was the one who got this guy Soleimani, the media would be cheering. This guy was a KNOWN TERRORIST LEADER…. but the fact that you still hate Trump proves you can’t even see past your own party hatred.

    • right!!

      @Joy Phillips yea and if Obama was spending so much time golfing and using tax payers money for it the republicans would be ready to hang him but yet your guy Trump has spent more money golfing at his golf courses in just 3 years than Obama spent in 8 years. You Trump followers just can’t leave Obama alone.
