I thought this was some kind of joke at first so I checked his actual Twitter page and sure enough, it's there:

if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey
Source


Look, I'm extremely glad that he beat Hillary and all, and I'm totally all for his crusade against the lying manipulative MSM outlets and internet censorship, but sometimes he says stupid things. This time I think it went beyond stupid.

i have no problem with it. Turkey is ran by a really messed up dude. He needs to be talked down to in any case of conversation with him.

So the problem is with the wording of "great and unmatched wisdom" but if he had left that little bit out, Everyone is fine with what he is DOING?

I get it... should he say half the things he says or pronounce it YUGE, maybe not... but is he doing a great job, and do we care about the words that much?... He can come out tomorrow and say "I in my great and unmatched wisdom, do declare that all ducks were once chickens!" and I would ask..... "so? but my taxes were lowered right? ok cool"


You seem to be selectively ignoring the fact that both my thread title and post also mentioned his threat to Turkey.

Trump's threat is meant as a warning to Turkey not to do anything that looks like genocide against the Kurds. That's the only legitimate reason for US forces to be anywhere within a thousand miles of Syria. Certainly the Syrian civil war is none of our damn business. Assad may be a bad guy, but so are the Rebels. The rebel groups are all either Al Quaida affiliates, or they're proxy groups for the CIA, MI6, Mossad, etc.

My guess as to what will actually happen is the Kurds will quickly reconcile with the Syrian government, who will then re-occupy the territory to stop any potential Turkish aggression. That's almost certainly been the goal all along.

That's all fine... But regardless of whether or not Turkey deserves to be threatened, there are more appropriate ways of doing so than publicly on Twitter immediately after telling the entire world about your "great and unmatched wisdom". This doesn't make him look like a strong leader, it makes him look like a child having a tantrum.

Trump is completely off the rails over impeachment and is pulling out all stops to deflect and try to own the news cycle.

Tail wagging the dog much?

He might just start a war with (who? Canada?) to get the media off the topic of the inevitable impeachment,

He has lost it, and is screeching REEEEEEEEEEE into the wind...

The wisdom to pull out of Syria is indeed great.
As for unmatched, well that's quite a claim, howvever compared to past Presidents and war mongers in the US Congress, he's more or less correct on that point too.

Poor liberals and Neocons won't get to play war with other peoples lives. How terrible for them.

But he's not impeached. How can he be off the rails for something that has not happened. If you mean potential impeachment inquiry then maybe but saying straight up impeachment is putting the cart way before the horse. The whole process will take damn near a year and right now it has not even started.

It's hard to imagine what would qualify as "off limits" by Trump's unmatched wisdom. I mean, he protected the Saudi guy who had a journalist chopped up, he's silent of China's aggression against the Hong Kong protesters, and the human rights violations of certain religious factions within their borders, or North Korea's human right's violations.

I guess anything that adversely affects is political outlook.

I think impeachment will happen by Thanksgiving.

The crime is out in the open.


A now-public whistleblower complaint details reports “from multiple U.S. Government officials that the President of the United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign county in the 2020 U.S. election.” The complaint describes a July 25 phone call between President Trump and Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky during which Trump pressured the Ukranian president to investigate one of Trump’s political rivals. The White House has released a summary of the July 25 call that corroborates the whistleblower’s account. In particular, the call summary indicates that, with Congressional aid for Ukraine on hold, Trump told Zelensky that U.S. support for his country has not always been “reciprocal,” and then asked Zelensky for a “favor”: to work with Trump’s personal attorney, as well as the U.S. Attorney General, to investigate Trump’s potential 2020 rival, Joe Biden. Tweetable quote: These facts not only reflect a startling abuse of executive power; they also unambiguously demonstrate that Trump broke the law by soliciting valuable assistance to his reelection efforts from a foreign government.

That kind of their thing though. If you take that away, what would they have?
