Pierce: The President* Is Having Another Episode. Get the Net.

The President* Is Having Another Episode. Get the Net.
Trump observes that the Kurds did not, in fact, fight at Normandy.

BY CHARLES P. PIERCE
OCT 9, 2019

And we conclude our blog-cast day with these words from...The President* of the United States.

The Kurds are fighting for their land, just so you understand, and somebody wrote a very, very powerful article today. They didn't help us in the Second World War, they didn't help us with Normandy as an example, they mentioned names of different battles. But they're there to help us with their land and that's a different thing. In addition to that weŚwe have spent tremendous amounts of money on helping the Kurds in terms of ammunition, in terms of weapons, in terms of money, in terms of pay, with all of that being said, we like the Kurds.


Normandy.

Saving Private Ardalan?

Normandy?

Get the net. Do it immediately.

4. The Kurds died in thousands fighting ISIS

Why shouldn't we support them now while Turkey is trying to wipe them out?

The closest he's come to billionaire status was in reverse, when he claimed to have lost $900 million.

15. And whose side were they on in the Civil War?

How can we trust them when they fought with the Yanks? Oh wait, I'm a Yank. I mean, how can we trust them when they fought with the Confederacy? Or somebody, or were they there at all? Maybe they were invisible. Anyway, we like the Kurds.

16. What about the War of 1812?

Where were they then, hmm? Really, it's all about them and their property, how rude. We know no one who only considers those things.

(Because it seems necessary these days: )

Kurds should have their own country but somebody gave it to Turkey, Iraq & Syria. BushI fucked the Kurds, too, when Sadam gassed them. I always pull for the underdog.

Where they fought off the Dreaded 45 Bone Spurrers led by Gen. Covfefe insuring the American forces a victory.

24. Brain salad. But not even that good. Old slimy slaw.

So why does any news outlet spew this garbage into our airwaves.

Leave the old senile bastard alone with his rantings. Build that wall. Encapsulate him, his family, his sycophants into a cocoon for future generations to study.

28. Anyone know if Trump is referring to an actual article?

Seems like he might be.

At any rate, this tweet is a rambling, incoherent patch of confusion produced by a dementia-fogged brain, the brain of the President of the United States of America. (I just vomited in my mouth a little writing that last bit.)

Is the betrayal of the Kurds the last straw? Will the GOP now desert this terrible, terrible man? I'm not kidding myself. The betrayal of the Kurds by a brain-sick old man is NOT the last straw for his base or for Republicans generally. They will stick by him until pariah America stands isolated, bankrupt morally and fiscally, from the rest of the world. They will stand by him because Mexicans are drug-running, murderous rapists; because Liberals are all communists who want to take your guns, murder your unborn child, and make your white sons and daughters marry black or brown people of the same sex; also because wealthy people shouldn't pay taxes.

So, finally, this is how America ends: a brainless old man leading his cult of drooling idiots and stupidly ambitious sycophantic lemmings off the edge of a cliff, dragging the rest of us with them (because, in the eyes of the world, we are all of us tarred with the same Orange bristled brush).
