But there are three questions we must ask ourselves:
1. What is Trump’s real motivation here? He doesn’t know where Syria is, he thinks Assad is a true “Leader,” and he wouldn’t know a “chemical weapon” if one pissed in his mouth.
I think this is partially distraction. Look, Trump is virtually plagued with scandals. The Russia investigation, Stormy, Comey’s book, his “Fixer’s” arrest… the list goes on. Lie after lie is becoming undone, and each truth is leading to another thread of lies and deceits. The Republicans are jumping ship like rats leaving the Titanic.
We know that Trump doesn’t give a shit about children – especially swarthy brown ones. So, we need to ask ourselves why this “crisis” really is a crisis. Or IF it’s one at all. The man who would never telegraph his actions telegraphed the shit outta this.
Assad and Putin both were warned days in advance. Last week, Trump told us he’d singlehandedly defeated ISIS, but this morning his Generals said ISIS remains the #1 target in Syria.
The question when dealing with someone like Trump must always be – what do YOU have to gain. Because if Trump doesn’t see a quantifiable and personal gain, he’s not going to do anything. He works for himself. So, again. What is his REAL motivation behind this?
2. The second question is, how do we even know if any of this is true? With Trump, we really can’t know if Assad did anything, nor can we know if the attack was successful. In fact, we don’t even REALLY know if there was an attack at all.
The whole fuckin’ thing could be stock footage. Trump has told 3,000 DOCUMENTED lies, just since the coups d’état… I mean, the election. Trump’s primary disseminator of “news” is the “National Enquirer” for Christ’s sake. The paper is most well known for pairing Elvis’ ghost with Lobster-boy. If Mueller isn’t the one saying it – I’m not believing a word.
3. And lastly, we need to ask ourselves how we as a nation can rally behind a leader whose every action is followed by the above two questions.
After December 7th, when FDR made the “Day of Infamy” announcement, the nation pulled together like no nation in history ever had. We put aside our differences and joined in the fight. But we knew FDR was telling us the truth. And we knew he wasn’t doing it to develop financing for a bankrupt casino somewhere.
With Trump, we know none of that.
