News Flash Mike Pence is an idiot too. He doesn't know the difference between eminent and imminent

On MSNBC about 20 minutes ago.

Very rough quote, "Soleimani was ready for eminent attack."


eminent adjective

(of a person) famous and respected within a particular sphere or profession.
"one of the world's most eminent statisticians"

Imminent about to happen.
"they were in imminent danger of being swept away"

1. Eminent threat?

What's the Pope up to now? You go away from DU for 20 minutes and the Pope turns out to be a terrorist?

4. Maybe it was a very prestigious attack being planned?

All the best people, all the celebrities and notable scholars were going to do a human wave attack. It was going to be eminent!!
