  1. The troops are coming home, they are just going to circumnavigate the earth first.

  2. maybe it’s all got something to do with trump tower in Azerbaijan

  3. Perhaps Jared could be assigned to solving the Iran issue, after his superb work bringing peace to the Israelis and Palestinians.

  4. “The rest of the world has sized him up” We have indeed.

      @Crystal Giddens Yes, republican are stupid for supporting a racist sexist criminal known as turd tRumpo.

    • ​@Susan Sullivan Honey, you should not type on mommy’s computer until you learn what big words mean. Go play with Barbie and Ken now.

  5. Today’s vocabulary word: Diplo-tainment. I love it.

    • Marcus Anderson | January 2, 2020 at 9:10 PM | Reply

      That’s the best new word to describe this fool and his cronies practices.

    • Hey, don’t bring Diplo into this…I don’t want to associate anything enjoyable with President Sh*t for Brains

    • Peter Jeffery | January 2, 2020 at 9:50 PM | Reply

      Is there a Pulitzer Prize for wordsmithing? Diplotainment ( it felt good to un-hyphenate the word) in the Trump Era has a ring of truthiness to it. Bravo Eli!

    • yuo may like it, know it’s all organised….let Irak chase the mentally deranged Mobster out of Office

  6. Diplotainment

  7. WE want to hear witnesses, under oath,

    • @Rich Winder If you heard it from CNN, it must be Trufe. Sadly, they do not know, the meaning of proof.

      @Texas75023 Ah, check your spelling for one- typo. The GOP and the right need to take a civics class and actually study the Constitution because then you wouldn’t post such dumb statements bashing Democrats. P.S. The Democrats were following the procedures for Impeachment hearings voted in by a GOP majority in 2015 so too bad baby if they used them against your dirtbag guy now.

      @Some Person Yeah, I said the same thing too before I saw your post. Actually the GOP and the right are the ones dumbing down the schools and against Public education so Texas’s post is just DUMB.

      @Rich Winder 😁😉

  8. You’d be a fool to think 45 puts any thought into foreign policy in Iran

    • @nailbiter I’m not even sure he has object-permanence.

      I’d love to see someone hit him with a simple math/English/or geography question during a press conference/debate. He would sh*t the bed so thoroughly.

    • @superman superman The only thing he’s ended is the USA’s reign as a superpower. We are a worldwide joke now.

    • Ivanka speads for Quincy Jones | January 2, 2020 at 10:03 PM | Reply

      @superman superman your president got impeached by a girl

  9. This is not a mistake, he is implementing putin’s policy. The US needs a new enemy that isn’t Russian, he’s picking the fight on purpose.

    • HighL0W Putin’s policy? Are you seriously this stupid? You’ve successfully been indoctrinated by the media. Seek help!

    • @Rod Allen
      I trust the NSA, FBI, and the DoD, more than YOU. Lesser of evils, ehhh!

    • @Rich Winder I’d rather trust the US Intelligence Community than some guy online like Rod Allen who just cries about others beliefs. At least our Intelligence Community is known to have US interests at heart, unlike Trump who *trusts Putin* over his own goverment and openly says it…

    • Roald Shakleton | January 2, 2020 at 10:31 PM | Reply

      I don’t understand either. Iran is a surrogate for Russia.

    • Simon Esposito | January 2, 2020 at 10:37 PM | Reply

      This is a time to pray that Vladimir Putin really _does_ have a prevailing influence over President Trump, because _that_ could be the last thing standing in the way of a cataclysmic war against Iran. The rightwing US-Israel elite has been trying to start it for over a decade, but both country’s presidents are at maximum temptation to use it during the the next couple of months to help their political survival.

    Impeached Trump can’t handle a single crisis. He’s weak and impotent.

  11. When everything is about “winning” and a photo op, reality goes by the wayside. When a megalomaniac hires a bunch of yes men instead of seasoned experts, reality goes by the wayside. The nuclear threat from North Korea is NOT over. There is no “great new Iran” either. Strangling Iran with sanctions after leaving the JCPOA they begrudgingly agreed to is foolish. Thinking ANYTHING North Korea promises or says is foolish also. Damned shame America now governs by whatever trump can spin to look good for him instead of what our National Security interests are. We gotta fix America after trump and “republicans” in the Senate are gone.

  12. *_DIPLOTAINMENT!!!!!_* nice…just great.

    Sean Spicer on Dancing with the Stars (wait is he a 🌟 star??) and now diplotainment. What next, FORMER staffers, the West Wing dance-off. (geeesh 🤦🏽‍♀️)

  13. i thought we got out of iraq

  14. The mans is as incompetent as he is corrupt, god bless America, more like god help it.

    • @Bubba Nelson *Low Intelligence Quotient Reich Wing Turd Alert*

    • Good thing god isn’t real.
      Trump The Chump Has a Fat Rump.

    • @Bubba Nelson Yawn.

    • Kathy Franklund | January 2, 2020 at 10:11 PM | Reply

      Bubba Nelson Oh yes we are surprised just look what happened in the news today. Trump claiming responsibility for killing a high ranking official in Iran! If you’re so happy to be one of Trump supporters why don’t you sign up for war and go over to Iran and just hack your way through improve America is the best.

    • Kathy Franklund | January 2, 2020 at 10:13 PM | Reply

      Rod Allen, why don’t you join up for service be one of the boots on the ground over in around right now.You’re also gung ho for a war and Civil War why don’t you go ahead and get a Headstart and join the military.

  15. very well said, ty everyone.

  16. cameron williams | January 2, 2020 at 9:23 PM | Reply

    This helps Russia. Iran is buying up Russian nuclear material. Why does this surprise anyone anymore. He starts a conflict then pats himself on the back for getting us out of it.

  17. “And they’ll be home by Christmas”.

    You can ask my momma!!! I told her when he got elected, he’s gonna get us all killed!!!

  19. An unparalleled IMBECILE that might indeed plunge the world into its next WORLD WAR.

    They resumed their program in Iran because tRump got rid of that treaty and never replaced it with anything.
