What Stupid Sh*t Did Donald Trump Say Today?
Take your pick:
1) On the sexual harassment allegations against Bill O’Reilly: “I think he’s a person I know well — he is a good person. I think he shouldn’t have settled; personally I think he shouldn’t have settled. Because you should have taken it all the way. I don’t think Bill did anything wrong.”
2) Trump alleges — without providing a shred of evidence — that Susan Rice committed a crime.
“I think it’s going to be the biggest story. It’s such an important story for our country and the world. It is one of the big stories of our time.”
While he has no evidence whatsoever to support that claim, he has promised to provide it at “the right time,” which is to say, when the heat to provide evidence gets too hot, he will make up another scandal and divert the media’s attention to there.
Is anyone talking about Devin Nunes today?
3) On the attacks in Syria, a country where Donald Trump — as a private citizen — advocated that we do nothing and insisted that it was not our problem.
Now that he’s President, however, he’s blaming Obama for the chemical attacks that happened yesterday, 75 days after Obama left office:
“Today’s chemical attack in Syria against innocent people, including women and children, is reprehensible and cannot be ignored by the civilized world. President Obama said in 2012 that he would establish a ‘red line’ against the use of chemical weapons and then did nothing,” Mr. Trump continued, referring to Mr. Obama’s first direct threat of force. “The United States stands with our allies across the globe to condemn this intolerable attack.”
He has numbed us to his own outrage. This is one of the most shocking things an American President has ever said.— Elliott Lusztig (@ezlusztig) April 4, 2017

The only reason President Obama wants to attack Syria is to save face over his very dumb RED LINE statement. Do NOT attack Syria,fix U.S.A.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 5, 2013
Marco Rubio doesn’t think it’s Obama’s fault. He thinks it is Trump’s fault:
“In this case now, we have very limited options, and look, it’s concerning that the secretary of State … said that the future’s up to the people in Syria on what happens with Assad … In essence, [Tillerson was] almost nodding to the idea that Assad was gonna get to stay in some capacity.” “I don’t think it’s a coincidence that a few days later we see this.”
Rubio knows where the buck stops now.
