Trump couldn’t find an establishment Republican Senator to agree with his position, so he went with the libertarian isolationist. Meanwhile, Lindsay Graham called the move a disaster and an “Obama-like mistake,” whatever that means, while Marco Rubio called it a “blunder” (and Rubio knows all about blunders).

You know who was surprised? General Joseph F. Dunford Jr., chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who was not invited to the meeting and was kept in the dark until the decision had already been made. You know who else was probably real surprised? The Syrian Democratic Forces, who we had assured in September that we would stay and help them root out ISIS, several pockets of which still exist, in addition to the thousands of militants who remain underground.

You know who is super stoked about Trump’s decision to withdraw? Turkey, the only country informed of the decision before it was announced. That’s interesting … wasn’t Michael Flynn a foreign agent for Turkey? Oh, wait! He was. “All Americans should be concerned that this hasty announcement was made on the day after sentencing in criminal proceedings began against the President’s former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who admitted that he was a registered foreign agent for a country with clear interests in the Syrian conflict,” Nancy Pelosi said yesterday.

You know who else loves this decision? Putin. “The fact that the US has decided to withdraw its troops is right,” Putin said today. From the Washington Post:

The United States and many allies strongly denounced Russia’s military intervention in Syria. But Trump’s withdrawal is seen by many — including some Trump backers — as an indirect boost for Moscow and its status as the main foreign power in Syria.

Wait, what? They will have to fight ISIS without us? But I thought …

You’re sending us some mixed messages there, Donny.

Translation: I WILL FUCKING DESTROY THIS COUNTRY UNTIL YOU MAKE ME A FUCKING WALL MADE OF STEEL SLATS, WHICH IS REALLY A FENCE, BUT WHATEVER, AND SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT MEXICO PAYING FOR IT.

Translation: Remember the Caravans? That threat that I completely made up, that was never actually threat to begin with, because those Caravans amass all the time, and no threat ever materializes, but remember how I wasted millions of dollars in taxpayer money to unnecessarily send troops to the border during the holidays as a political stunt that completely backfired and then never spoke of it again after the midterms?

And Border Patrol is doing a great job, except for those times when 7-year-old girls die of dehydration in their custody. NOW GIVE ME MY FUCKING WALL.
