It has never been more clear that Donald Trump will lie about anything. After launching an attack that killed Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC’s) Quds Force, Trump and his team claimed that Soleimani was plotting a “major” attack on Americans. Of course, he provided no evidence of that, despite how implausible it seems. Why would Iran suddenly want to provoke an armed conflict with the United States?
Naturally, Trump did, as always, have Fox news to cover for him. They are his Ministry of Propaganda who will eagerly and obediently affirm his lies. But regardless of how determined they are to construct a fantasy world wherein Trump is an infallible hero, the American people are not that easily fooled. A new poll by FiveThirtyEight and Ipsos has more bad news for Trump:
“A majority (57 percent) of Americans said they think Trump committed an impeachable offense. Fifty-two percent said they think Trump’s actions regarding Ukraine or his refusal to cooperate with the impeachment inquiry constitute enough evidence to remove him from office.”
Once again, a significant majority of voters have expressed their desire to see Trump impeached and removed from office. This is not a new development. Many other polls have shown the same thing over an extended period of time. However, this poll is proof that one of Trump’s most frequent assertions about impeachment is patently false. As recently as last month Trump declared that “Impeachment has backfired thoroughly on the Democrats.” As usual, he provided nothing to support that claim. He just expects his glassy-eyed disciples to believe whatever he tells them. And, sadly, many will.
This poll not only demonstrates that the public favors Trump’s impeachment, it also shows that this sentiment is growing, not backfiring as Trump says. The poll also reveals that most Americans want the Senate to conduct a fair impeachment hearing with witnesses and document production. During the House hearings Trump whined bitterly about wanting witnesses to testify, while simultaneously prohibiting them from doing so. Now he is opposed to such testimony and is pressuring GOP leader Mitch McConnell to decline to have hearings at all.
Trump is obviously afraid of a reality that places him in political peril. so he concocts an alternative version of it that better matches his narcissistic world view. And he passes that along to his cult followers who are just as anxious as he is to latch unto some comforting falsehoods. It would be a pathetic state of affairs for any individual. But when that individual is the President of United States it’s downright dangerous.
The situation currently unfolding with Iran is an excellent example of how Trump’s pathological dishonesty impacts world affairs. Not only do the American people doubt everything Trump says, so do nations that would otherwise form alliances with the U.S. to combat terrorism. Trump’s lying results in forcing America to drift alone in a sea of uncertainty and disrepute. The sooner we are rid of him, the better.

Impeach him, charge him with his crimes, find him guilty and send him to prison. Maybe the Hague will want him, too, after the assassination of the Iranian general Soleimani.
The House of Representatives should punish traitortrump for escalating a war situation with Iran by adding additional Articles of Impeachment to those that they already have. How about Obstructing Governmental Administration or something like that because he did NOT consult with Congressional majority or minority leaders. Trump is NOT an American monarch or the dictator he imagines himself to be. He must be slapped down, and hard, by Congress or soon, he’ll be ordering the deaths of anyone he perceives as his enemy, whether that person is in another country or is actually an American. What? You think that can’t happen here? Traitortrump is on that slippery slope right now, and it’s up to our elected leaders to grow a strong spine and STOP him- NOW!
And THIS is the Tyrant’s latest tweet:
I think the Tyrant has now made this country a terrorist nation. What do you think?
He most assuredly has made us a terrorist nation. I think Dubya/Cheney may have started us down that road when they lied their way into war they wanted with Iraq. They paid no price, personal or political, for lying repeatedly to the American people, or abuse at Abu Graib, use of torture, or the trillions of $$$ we still haven’t paid for any of it, etc., etc…
So, here we are again. This time, Iran ~ which Cheney, Bolton & the rest wanted then & now. Behind Trump’s gilded throne the same guys are hidden & in power, making sure they get what they’ve been wanting for so long. Those who have never been to war shouldn’t be allowed to make war! They have no idea the horrors of war – the sights, sounds, smells of war & death have no meaning for them.
I doubt Trump, vacationing at his resort, had much advance knowledge & still has no understanding of what he’s done. He’s just being the threatening bully he always is, with a big mouth & threats not done face-to-face.
Yes, we are the terrorists that we accuse others of being. We weren’t in danger, under attack. This war will be 1 that we’ll regret starting. No one likes a bully & eventually they get their ass whuped.
Everyone shooting their mouth off in support of Trump & his war, need to go right now — sign up for military service. If too old, sign their kid up to go to war. Too EZ to be here, safe & be pro-war, waving flag around, watching FauxNews.
Try living where bombs are dropping from drones, killing those you love & destroying everything around you. War doesn’t look so good from there!
Remember, of course, that the Tyrant joined the Reichwinger crowd in condemning Obama for authorizing the use of drones in other countries….
He is the ultimate hypocrite…they all (R’s) are no different I guess.
Noticed in ’90’s that whatever BS they were saying Dems doing, turned out Rethugs were doing it instead. Now, it’s so prevalent that if wanna’ know what they’re up to ~ just hear what they accuse Dems of & can bet $ they’re the ones doing it.
Dirty rotten little shithead bastards! Any decent people left in R Party should either get out(!), or get them out & reclaim their Party from thugs who have it nów!
Have talked to people who actually think the bombing war drones are about the same size as ones people “play with”!? (“A little bigger.”)
What…they dropping mini-bombs the size of bullets? I asked & they did think tinier bombs, not huuugge military drones. (People must be crazy!?!)
Only thing the drones have in common is the remote operation of them.
Maybe the MSM news should show what military drones really are & how big?
I think use of drones – not risking our own lives when killing people from far away – has made it too EZ for War Dept. to kill more… it’s not real to them maybe? Like a video game war.
Sure is real to those getting bombed!
…and his un-American supporters LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this s*it. NO matter what he does or says, to them, he’s ALWAYS right. They DON’T fcking get it. They DESERVE all the s*it, ridicule, scorn and contempt they get, for being so d**n STUPID, for their continued support for that lying, racist, sexist, clueless, un-American, a*swipe, dump. God almighty, WTF is WRONG with them?
If we only knew what is wrong with them, how they lost their minds & their ability to observe, recognize truth vs. lies & to think with clarity when it comes to the ultimate crooked con artist, DJ Trump.
If we knew where their brains short-circuited maybe we could help them return to reality. Otherwise, their misguided loyalty, translated into votes, could be the final straw that dooms the USA .
Then, we all suffer, not just them!
