Here's a really good takedown of a Republican that stated that Democrats love terrorists and mourn the death of the general that was killed on Trump's orders.

This falls into the rhetoric coming from the right, lead by Trump whom has said many times that Democrats hate America.

You are not a talk radio host or a carnival barker. You are a pastor, an attorney and a sitting member of Congress. Therefore, the evidence would suggest you should know better. To utter such garbage, which you know to be false and defamatory, goes against all the training and teaching you must have received. But you got your cheap shot across, and perhaps that's all that matters to you.

It's more of the same old Right Wing garbage.

Nothing more.

A cheap ploy to appeal to the deplorable base, who eats this crap up.

The better question is: Doug Collins and Nikki Haley; why do you pledge Alliance to a terrorist like Trump.

Assassination is a terrorist game. And that is exactly what Trump did.

Trump is a terrorist.

Guess Collins and Haley love a terrorist.

We know what sort of people support cruel liars.  History teaches consistent lessons on the topic. The Bible even tried to address it.

OooSo now, the Trumpster line of defense for engaging in terrorist activity is that Soleimani was plotting to blow up the American embassy in Baghdad.

No proof, of course.

Hmm.

Again, if the intelligence is as good as Trumpsters want us to believe, why not have US military forces take out the ammunition?

And just because Soleimani is dead, does that mean the alleged bombing plot is dead too?

Common sense tells us otherwise.

Who really believes that Soleimani was the only force behind wanting the US out of Iraqi?

Nobody.

May the illegal assassination of military general, from a sovereign nation we are not at war with, haunt Trump for many years to come.

We're in the position of having concrete evidence of the bold dishonesty and outright lies of the president and his sycophants and understanding that nothing that Trump says or writes can be believed. Our executive branch and the cabinet cannot be trusted to tell the truth, and the entire world knows it.

Pence says the proof is too sensitive for congress to know, so we'll never know. Even if Trump offered up proof would you believe him?  Again, we're in the position of believing a man that lies multiple times a day and a VP that supports those lies.

I laughed aloud when I read Pence's lame excuse.

Surely, Trumpsters such as Doug Collins and Mike Lee could be trusted.

Lame excuse.

If Trumpsters at least offered some kind of proof of "imminent" attack, the media could verify or disprove.

But of course, when you offer no proof, and instead make vague statements that include such time frames like days, weeks or months to explain "imminent," no one believes you.

Rational folks think you are LYING.

And now, we know Trumpsters are LYING, because they were planning similar attack on another Iranian military officer, at the same time, but in YEMEN.

And we know about a meeting with Saudis prior to Soleimani assassination.

Hmm.

What are the Saudis doing in Yemen?

Bombing.

Why?

I am also really torn between trying to decide if I think Trump has turned the US into a Banana Republic, complete with illegal assassinations, or a Soviet-style occupying force.

What do you all think?
