President Trump Has Declared War Against Syria. On Twitter

We’ve wanted to the President to finally stand up to Russia since the campaign, but dude: THIS IS NOT HOW YOU DO IT.

The President just announced that we’re going to war. On Twitter.

At least he’s not announcing his intentions ahead of time, as he promised so many times during the campaign … oh wait.

Actually, I heard this morning that Syrian troops are all running the hell away from potential targets, but then I also heard something about Russian bases being hit in potential strikes, and I hugged and kissed my children for the final time.

And what’s up with the question mark. “Don’t start a nuclear war with us?”

Anway, this is how they see Trump’s tweets in Russia:

— You know, good luck with this, fellas, considering the Majority Leader probably won’t even bring it up for a vote.

While you guys are considering a bill to protect Mueller, maybe also consider a bi-partisan bill to protect the fucking country from Trump’s national security impulses.

— In other news, even before the raid, Trump was thinking about firing Sessions and Rosenstein, which we knew. But Christopher Wray, too? From the NYTimes:

Mr. Trump’s mood had begun to sour even before the raids on his lawyer. People close to the White House said that over the weekend, the president engaged in few activities other than dinner at the Trump International Hotel. He tuned into Fox News, they said, watched reports about the so-called deep state looking to sink his presidency and became unglued.

Mr. Trump angrily told his advisers that people were trying to undermine him and that he wanted to get rid of three top Justice Department officials — Jeff Sessions, the attorney general; Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who appointed Mr. Mueller; and Christopher A. Wray, the F.B.I. director — according to two people familiar with what took place.

— If Trump doesn’t do it, California Congressman Devin Nunes will, I guess. He is “not messing around.” He’s going to impeach Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray.


Trump just appointed Christopher Wray less than a year ago. That’s his guy. The FBI Director gets a 10-year appointment, and Trump wants to fire him? That seems like a big deal to me that he’s even contemplating it. It’s not like the Senate is going to confirm, say, Michael Cohen, to be the FBI Director.

— Finally, re: Paul Ryan’s retirement, I have to post this tweet from Parker Molloy as another reminder of how amazing Tom Morello is.

I swear I have listened to Rage more during the Trump Administration than I ever did when they were at their peak, and I listened to them a lot at their peak.

After Paul Ryan retires, as he’s set to announce this morning, maybe he can join former Speaker of the House, John Boehner, on his new endeavor!
