Put down your drinks because you ain’t gonna to like this one. Donald Trump is laughing in our faces by literally looking into the camera and telling us, that we have no right to get a straight answer from him or his administration on why he ordered the strike on Iran’s top general in Iraq.
Trump gave an interview to Fox News Laura Ingraham, which will air in full tonight, but clips that have already been released feature an all new Trump lie about the intelligence behind the drone strike in Iraq. But before we talk about that, let’s see how Trump outright stated that he does not owe us any reason as to why he carried out the attack.
“Don’t the American people have a right to know what specifically was targeted without revealing methods and sources?” Ingraham asked Trump. “Well, I don’t think so. But we will tell you that probably it was going to be the Embassy in Baghdad,” TRump responded. GOP, wake up. How is this not reason to impeach?
He won’t tell Congress why he did the attack and he is essentially taunting the public by saying we don’t have a right to the truth. Trump took it even further though, by providing yet another lie to try and justify his attack in Iraq.
“I can reveal that I believe it would have been four embassies,” Trump said. He pulled this number out of a hat, of course, because the official U.S. government website listing embassies and consulates in Iraq, lists 1 embassy and 2 consulates. There’s no way to tell how where he got these four embassies from, other than that he made it up.
