Mike Pompeo Urged Trump To Kill Gen. Qassem Soleimani: Report | Morning Joe | MSNBC


    1. @Stay Casual holding hands and chatting about any little thing, while strolling down the sidewalk… cuddling together on the porch swing and watching the sun set… gently caressing her chin and kissing her full lips… … …

    1. @Shelley Ross Trump has made more than 12,000 false or misleading claims …
      https://www.washingtonpost.com › politics › 2019/08/12 › president-trump-…
      Aug 12, 2019 – President Trump has made 12,019 false or misleading claims over 928 days. By … 5, his 928th day in office, he had made 12,019 false or misleading … a percentage that has grown since the government shut down over … In fact, his most repeated claim — 190 times — is that his border wall is being built.

    2. @and the truth is It’s ridiculous isn’t it. I don’t have any respect for anyone still defending all his lies.

    3. @Oracle of the Most High How can they be wicked if the churches and their sheep voted them into office? Trump is perfect. Just ask him.

    4. @speedstick77 perfectly.wicked 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 frfr tho!
      They will hold themselves not accountable. They think that their kingdom & power will last 4eva!

    1. SkyGemini dude get over yourself those clearly awoke hav common sense to comment realistically speaking get some political education than we will hear from you ! #USA

    1. You know it’s impossible to breath and talk at the same time? Stop supporting the terrorist Soleimani who burned and drilled young children in front of their parents, or not, it’s your choice.

    2. Lol quit pretending to care you lying scums. We all know absolutely nothing will happen to people like Pompeo or Barr after trump leaves office. Americans have always enabled war criminals, that’s why trump’s even in office in the first place, because americans have been enabling trump’s base for over half a century. You can save your fake crocodile tears, everyone’s been watching this on repeat for so many decades, it’s absolutely hilarious americans think they’re fooling anyone but themselves by spewing more lies

    1. @Delroy Brower you’re a smart man..Trump wants peace this is why both parties hated him trying in north Korea..the military industrial complex runs America!!!$$$$$$$$. Both parties want war. The generals want war because it’s what they practice and the politicians for power and money. Israel could have leaked bad info then trumps advisors forced his hand knowing iran response hard and bingo there is your war $$$$. President Kennedy ignored his generals during the cuban missile crisis thank god we where this close to nuclear war. Scary stuff ..its not going to change delroy

    2. Area 51 raid 20th of April when they are occupied with Iran. With cyber trucks we will be protected against the bullets. Hope you can come 💪🏼

    1. Is that Mrs. Covina (“Cov”) Fefe? You’re absolutely right. Most politicians dance around questions when it is inconvenient to answer them. Secy Pompeo does it so clumsily, haltingly, incompetently, though. He might as well have a tattoo on his upper lip saying, “This too is a lie.” I’ve heard five-year olds deal with accusatory questions better when they are innocent, and about as badly when they are not.

    1. Dayna Jones Given the impulsive and overkill-type nature of this act, I believe, is evidence that Trump is actually behind this, and Pompeo is taking the fall. I could be wrong, but I would not be at all surprised if Trump were allowing other officials to take the blame for him, for his own decisions. The US election is less than a year away, and Republicans are desperate to save face. Their “face” is currently Donald Trump, so they are perhaps now trying more desperately than ever before to save his face leading up to the election.

    1. You would think that but if that were really true, Trump would have been impeached and removed long ago. The Republicans are responsible for the Orange Man still being in the Oval Office.


    1. Because selling out the lives of American citizens, who happen to be brown AND journalists who probably had dirt not just on Saudi Arabia, but also this administration and gop, is worth the arms deal money and the return on the investments gop leadership bought in stock, made with an extremist dictatorship. Silly goose 😊

    1. He Killed ISIS. That is a good thing. USA had no business bombing all those countries and criminally occupying foreign soil.

    1. He’s got the cheating and stealing down pat. His lying could use some work though – he’s a patently obvious liar.

  2. Pompeo saying “The American people are smart” is like a pedophile pitching children to play a game.

    1. Poe Lou Chan Pompeo saying “The American people are smart”, with this administration, that is code for “Oh yes, we’re definitely hiding something important from the American people”. In this particular case, I believe what Pompeo is hiding is that Trump ordered the Iraqi general killed, and Pompeo is possibly taking the fall for it. Why? Because the US election is just months away, and the Republican party’s “anointed one” Trump has to look as squeaky clean as possible from now until the election.
