If there is one thing for which Donald Trump has distinguished himself, it’s his interminable compulsion to inject his transparently self-serving, usually incoherent, and always lie-riddled opinion into every discussion on any subject regardless of how ignorant he is on the topic. Which is pretty much every topic. Trump’s mouth is a perpetually gaping hole that excretes waste product at all hours of the day and night.
So it’s curious to note that Trump has been uncharacteristically silent on one particular subject for the past 24 hours. On Friday, President Biden’s White House announced that the U.S. military had deployed an armed drone to a remote province in Afghanistan where it successfully terminated a high-level ISIS-K operative. This strike was an opening salvo in retaliation for the terrorist bombing that took place at the Kabul airport the day before.
Ever since the airport bombing that took the lives of 13 American service members and an estimated 150 Afghan civilians, Trump has been flinging vicious and unfounded attacks, not at the terrorists, but at Biden and America’s military. He complained that “This is what you get when you have weakness in the White House.” So you have to wonder if he meant that to apply to the 80+ soldiers who were killed while he was occupying the White House.
Trump would not shut up about the tragedy. He pretended to care about the victims, although he has previously insulted fallen soldiers as “losers” and “suckers.” and he callously exploited it to whine some more about having lost the 2020 presidential election. But what he hasn’t done is to acknowledge the military’s achievement in hitting back at the terrorists so quickly and efficiently.
It isn’t that Trump has been busy with other more important matters, like golfing or watching Fox News. On Saturday morning he released four official statements via his spokes-shill, Liz Harrington (whose proxy Trump tweeting is violating Twitter’s rules against circumventing a ban). Each statement was a bitter and flagrantly false anti-Biden outburst:
- “Biden’s Hostage Crisis of Epic Proportions”
- “‘They Showed Weakness’: Pompeo Hits Back At Biden, Says Trump Admin Had ‘Conditions-Based’ Withdrawal Plan”
- “Rep. Ronny Jackson to Newsmax: ‘Bad Things Going to Happen’ on National Security”
- “Trump says Kabul airport explosion wouldn’t have happened if he were president”
- “The Presidential Election of 2020—a disgraceful moment in our Country’s history!”
UPDATE: It’s now been 48 hours and still no comment by Trump acknowledging the successful strike against ISIS-K. However, there were more of these rage-tweets (all linking to Rupert Murdoch’s New York Post)…
- “This debacle has exposed Joe Biden as a failed president”
- “Afghanistan Reveals All the President’s Weaknesses”
- “I ran Team Trump’s Afghan withdrawal—Biden’s attempt to blame us is just sad”
- “In the midst of a White House breakdown: Goodwin”
So Trump had plenty of time to express those derogatory thoughts that serve no purpose other than to bring down America. But he hasn’t had the time or inclination to offer a bit of praise for those who are defending the nation under dangerous circumstances.
Trump is simply a malignant narcissist who is too jealous and emotionally warped to allow Biden to get any credit, even if that means denying well deserved commendations for the hard work and sacrifices of American heroes. But then that’s “what you get when you have weakness” in a treasonous, lying, twice-impeached, former TV game show host, who still has authoritarian aspirations.
