No Spine: Trump Rolls Over For Turkey, Angering GOP Leaders

  • Published: 09 October 2019
  • It takes a lot to get Republicans to criticize President Trump, but his capitulation to the Turkish leader on Syria has GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell offering rare public rebukes of the President. #Colbert #Syria #Monologue

      Your allies are responsible for the killing of more than 30 thousand citizens of Turkey, who were Turks, Kurds, Lazuri and all nations.. Stop calling them The Kurds, and please get your facts straight..

        So as it turns out it's a lie that trump gave the green light to Turkey to attack and there's documented proof that he told the Turkish president there would be consequences via trade for the attack. Moreover there were 28 people on the ground that were removed, what in the hell do people expect can be done by 28 troops to support the Kurds, really? Maby were can just magic an army there and start a war with Turkey which is a friendly nation and major trade partner. Its crazy and makes no sense. How about you provide a solution for a change instead of just bagging anything trump himmmm. I hope people dont expect that the Kurds be armed to fight against a friendly trade partner. The problem began when Obama pulled out the army before ISIS was completely defeated and the axing of the rebuilding of Iraq before completion allowed the extremist and ex Iraqi forces to alugamate into the Syrian crap and brotherhood we see today then solving the problem by arming a local force to fix it that's hostile to a friend nation.
        Some times I really wonder about Stephen and his political agenda day in day out he bags on trump but comming up to election the candidates for the Democrats are just as insane, dam.. Biden and his popping eye, crackhead enriching son, Warren who traded on being a native American her whole career and long after her lie came out still up till now insisted on being native any they many other crazies. Come on Stephen get ur act together now ur reporting on a political lie as if it's TRUE. There are other political people just as nuts as trump and you give them no screen time. Are you getting a handout from someone or is your network boss pressing you. You are starting to remind me of the reporter from the hunger games now you may not be pandering to the president but seems like your pandering to someone.

              Trump is probably thinking “why fight Turkey? They’re a NATO ally. Syria wants their land back and its an issue that they need to deal with that America has no business in.”

              Or something dumb like that. Oh, and fuck being the world police!

                Let me think about this for a second...
                Trump fulfills a campaign promise to end “endless wars”. That’s fine with me, but Washington swamp trolls love war, I mean kick backs from the military industrial thugs. Turkey has agreed to a cease fire to let the Kurds out of the area. ISIS gets screwed....Chuck and Nancy, like usual, get out maneuvered and look like fools.
                Hmmmm...all is well.
                Thanks Trump!!

                  Median household income has been steadily increasing under Trump, rising from $59,471 in January 2017 to $61,483 last month, according to Sentier Research, which tracks income on a monthly basis using census data.

                  This also means that household income is now higher than it's been in at least 50 years — after adjusting for inflation.

                  This is a sharp turnaround from the Obama years. Sentier data show that median household income was the same when President Obama left office as when he arrived. Under Obama, household incomes continued to fall steeply for two full years after the recession officially ended, and then took four years to make up that lost ground. Incomes then flatlined again, posting no overall gain between August 2015 and December 2016.

                  This is just another indication that the economy has notably strengthened under Trump. And polls show that the public's mood has brightened considerably as a result.

                  The latest IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index is 53.6. This index has been in positive territory (anything over 50 is optimistic) since Trump took office. The Quality of Life Index, meanwhile, hit a 14-year high in May and the Financial Stress Index is at an all-time low.

                        I gave this video a big thumbs down because they just mocked god and made fun of him for no reason. God is not a joke. I am a Catholic Christian and I find those jokes very distasteful and very disrespectful to people like myself who take god very seriously. It's like making fun of religion and that is horrible and inhumane.

                                                            Maybe the Kurds should be a bit more diplomatic if they do not have the means to defend themselves. It is NOT our responsibility to fight racial, historical and/or religious wars because we are the richest guys on the block, and if we help one side -vs- the other, we're just being used, period. It is NOT our responsibility! Let the cards lay where they may, and YES, we are a wealthy nation, but we will be broke and venerable if we deplete our resources. Common Sense! Quit allocating our taxes to help other nations, when we're barely making it in the US!

I’m surprised that kimmel haven’t been cancelled. To many people rely of the media for fact that aren’t even true. People should do some fact checking before running there mouths!
