Three-and-a-half years ago, Trump bragged he could shoot someone and not lose any votes. It seems like that has been his goal and now Cadet BS has deliberately killed a man, by proxy, and 176 other innocent people died as a result.
On Oct. 2, 2018, Jamal Khashoggi was assassinated, again by proxy. The killing was ordered by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. On Feb. 13, 2017, Kim Jong Nam was murdered, by proxy, ordered by his half-brother, Kim Jong Un.
Trump has now joined the I-can-kill-if-I-want-to dictator crowd and as he predicted, he has not lost any votes. In fact, since he ordered the killing of Gen. Qasem Soleimani carried out on Jan. 3, Trump’s follower counts for Instagram, for one week, shot up by about a million.
The growth of Trump's previous million additional followers took over in 90 days. In that same 90 days, Barack Obama’s, out of office for over three years now, follower counts increased by just under a million. Even with last week’s jump, Trump still lags behind Obama by a ratio of 39.67% to 60.33%.
Numbers, meaningless numbers, lives lost also meaningless to Trump and his supporters.
Imminent attack, this from the guy who said Mexico would pay for the wall and would be working too hard to play golf. Wake up! This republic is about to fail. The Republicans, led by Moscow Mitch, are seeing to that and Putin has not had to fire a single shot.
