  1. Why do we have generals in the arm forces with their main job is to advise the president as to what to do with our US forces when the president is making decisions on his own on a whim, and through tweets?

    • Trump openly admits he trusts Putin more than US intelligence, also he responds to Fox and his favorite anchors, kinda makes you wonder who else has his number…😒

    • Trump listens to no one

    • John David Wolf | October 8, 2019 at 4:45 PM | Reply

      He appears to listen to Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Vladimir Putin, Sean Hannity, Kim Jong Un and whoever those people on ‘Fox and Friends’ are.

    • Would you be interested in knowing that a Saudi Prince is now the second largest stockholder of Twitter – the communication platform that tRump supports each and every day with his personal “twit” account? How much $$$$ is that Saudi Prince making from tRump’s daily support of Twitter which keeps it’s stock value healthy? Is this just another example of “quid pro quo”? How much lower would the stock price of Twitter be if the President no longer used it? How many different ways can tRump make serious $$$ for himself, personally, through his position as President? No wonder he wants us to distrust Journalism and truth and ethics. tRump can’t operate when the Rule of Law is applied. Time for him to go, go, go.

    The only one who should be packing up is cadet bonespurs.

  3. So I guess his puppets are going to go on TV now and claim Trump was “just needling” the media LoL

    • We are all connected I’ve seen trump supporters say even dumber things in person so it’s hard to navigate what’s real anymore haha. My bad

      @uhohhhsteven I get it…I should have said a disclaimer….but man, everyone piled on me! For a minute there, I felt like the Queen in Mel Brooks’ History of the World! 😁

    Traitor in chief.

  5. OH yea trump has Two Towers in Turkey so once again Trump is putting his property and profit over country and human life

  6. Alessia C***** | October 8, 2019 at 3:38 PM | Reply

    Everyone can thank trump and the Republican Party for this mess that keeps getting messier by the day.

  7. Kofi McBaiden | October 8, 2019 at 3:39 PM | Reply

    The clown is trying to wag a dog.

  8. Wait what?! So he was just joking?! How fuggin disjointed and sad!! He was just needling the media right?!

  9. Trump bowes to any country that he has property in to protect his money no matter of the human cost

  10. So what did Trump get out of this betrayal? Deflection from his disgraceful conduct in Ukraine? Money from Turkey? Praise from Putin? All of the above?

    • Sheila W Yes, Trump will throw anyone under the bus in the name of distraction. That’s what this is. Master Distractor does it again.

    • Turkey said his 2 towers in Turkey can stay if he pulls out of the Syrian border area

    • Man, what a horrendous mistake putting the clown in the White House

    • Common Sense A Super Power | October 9, 2019 at 11:54 AM | Reply

      Trump is getting either:
      • New hotels/towers in Turkey
      • Fake dirt on Biden
      • Money wired to his offshore account

      Erdogan must have offered one of these to get bone spur Trump to pullout of Syria and betray his allies. Just follow the money…

  11. I, in my own great and unmatched wisdom.. “The Commander In Cheese Strike again!’ 😲.🤔

  12. “I know more than the generals.” Donald J Trump, who’s never served a day in the military. You can feel the frustration in that reporter’s voice.

    • @Lienlin Huang Nono.. you have to get the quote right or you’re fake news. No, sorry, corrupt news is his new tag line because he can’t keep calling it fake when he himself proves it’s not. 😛 “… in my great and unmatched wisdom…”

      The statement of a wannabe dictator if ever there was one!

      I remember when the military brass disrespected JFK because he was only a lieutenant. Yet they treat this bozo with respect.

      Previous month I managed to withdraw my first five figure check ever!!! I’ve been working for this company on the net for 24 months now and I never been happier… They are paying me $95 per hour, and the most desirable thing regarding this is that I am not that tech-savvy, they only asked for basic understanding of internet and basic typing skill…The best thing about this is the more time I got with my kids. I am able to devote quality time with my relatives and buddies and take care of my children and also going on holiday along with them very often. Don’t skip this opportunity and make sure to respond quickly. Check it out, what I do… *worth48­.­c­o­m*

    • @Frank Winkhorst That was just the excuse they used for their disrespect. In truth it was because he was a Democrat. The military has never favored Democrats because they are more about supporting domestic concerns and not wars. There’s a lot of money in murdering people under the guise of “war”.

    • He attended a military Academy which puts him head and shoulders above most presidents who fought in the infantry or other branch.
      And while generals also attend those academies they speak and act as individuals. The president is surrounded by advisors as well. But there is nobody on either side of the aisle politically who can claim any expertise in middle east policy. after 70 years nobody has gotten it right. Whichever side you’re on its time to agree that a new approach is needed

    The self professed “Chosen One” thinks the presidency comes with a crown and a scepter. In reality what he needs is a pacifier and a rattle. Followed by a blindfold and a cigarette. In between some tar and feathers.

    • Michael Linkroum | October 9, 2019 at 4:35 AM | Reply

      I’d rather throw tRump in a padded cell and execute Moscow Mitch,but that’s just me!

      Our jerry springer president

    • You people still dont get how he works. After 3 years of talk and tweet followed by negotiation or discussion the right thing has gotten done. He puts it out there. He didn’t send an order which as commander in chief, he absolutely could do. He made a statement that he would do it and sat back and watched and listed to what plays out.
      That makes Erdogan the villain now. He is after all the NATO ally with the US. So the US can’t legally side with anyone against them. The Kurds certainly helped the US against ISIS. But what else were they going to do ? Join them.? It was motivated self interest.

      But now if Turkey is attacking a region where its greatest NATO ally is stationed then it’s own future may be in question.

    • @P.D. Evans I get how he works. It is called the Putin factor. Do whatever daddy Putin wants.

    • @Boyd you have to be either joking or brain dead. It’s the dems who were subdued by Russian influence. Trump just rode the wake of that Wave into the Whitehouse. He said wouldn’t it be great if they were allies instead if enemies. Then he imposed the toughest sanctions ever on Russia. And despite his non involvement in Crimea which the dems just let him take with no argument until it was too late. Trump is now making it is official policy to maintain sanctions until Russia restores control of Crimea to Ukraine.

  14. Another, “Hey, look over there!!”?

  15. There is no excuse for allowing trump to stay in office when he is jeopardizing our troops and the relationships with our allies. Those making excuses for trump and defending his indefensible behavior should have to go with him.

  16. This puts OUR TROOPS AT RISK. Come home safe

  17. Sorry Republican lawmakers, you’re going to have to cut this guy loose.

  18. They just can’t call it stupid adderal fueled despot gate

  19. One simple threat from Erdogan to his two Hotels in Istanbul, and Turkey get’s what it wants.
