This week told what must be his 70,000th lie. He made up a story about “imminent attacks” which were planned by assassinated General Qassem Soleimani. Here’s the problem; Secretary of Defense, Mark Esper, who has access to everything the CIA, the DIA, and the Pentagon knows, was not aware of any threats to United States’ structures or personnel. Very interesting.
“The president didn’t cite a specific piece of evidence. What he said was he believed,” Esper said on the show. “I didn’t see one, with regard to four embassies. What I’m saying is that I shared the president’s view that probably—my expectation was they were going to go after our embassies. The embassy is the most prominent display of American presence in a country.”
Hey Esper, double talk is another form of a lie. Stop trying to cover-up for a decision maDe by Trump and Pompeo alone. They hate Iran and are eager to wage another unwinnable war in the Middle East. This sad and criminal situation reminds me of what occurred in 2003 between Rumsfeld, Cheney, and Bush 43.
I have no choice but to condemn the millions of ignorant Americans who voted for Trump. To cast your ballot for the least qualified, least experienced, and least intelligent man in history is a sign of extremely poor judgment and chosen ignorance.
I cannot remember when a single member of the Trump administration told the truth about anything. The fact is that the entire Republican Party would not exist without lies. They are incapable of governing and are not loyal to the American people. They will say and do anything to win elections. The party of special interests is your enemy.
Let’s stick together and end Trump’s ‘reign of terror.’ Vote every Republican who is up for election on November 3, 2020 out of office. Take back your country.
