Trump Gets Defensive About His Syria Blunder On Twitter; Makes Himself Look Even Dumber (TWEET)

News

If there’s one thing Donald Trump can’t handle whatsoever, it’s being criticized. He doesn’t like anyone ever thinking that he made the wrong move or decision. On top of that, he insists he’s never wrong. This is a dangerous quality in anyone, let alone a person who is supposedly leading a nation.


After tweeting out earlier on Saturday morning how amazing his action to bomb Syria with dozens of Tomahawk missiles was, as seen here:

“Congratulations to our great military men and women for representing the United States, and the world, so well in the Syria attack.”

It was clearly a more congratulatory, yet delusional, tweet towards himself. He then must have starting reading criticisms of his actions, or watching the news and pundits responding to what was done.

All of a sudden, another tweet popped up on Trump’s Twitter feed. One that was clearly impromptu, not thought out at all, and remarkably defensive.

Trump tweeted:

“The reason you don’t generally hit runways is that they are easy and inexpensive to quickly fix (fill in and top)!”

This was clearly in response to hearing that the missiles hit around the runway, and caused no real damage whatsoever. In fact, Syrian President Assad was able to use the bombed airbase within 24 hours.

The bombing was pure theater and posturing. It was done to no real effect and was merely symbolic. It was a “we’re watching you, look at me” move, and didn’t do anything but kill more civilians in the process.

If Trump truly cared about the Syrians and the Syrian children being killed by their own government, he’d allow them refuge in the United States. Something Trump is unwilling to do. Don’t buy into thinking that he actually gives a sh*t.

Trump’s defensiveness regarding this entire charade is making him look even dumber. Like, really, really dumb. What, so now we know how to fill in and top a runway? He’d have been better off just keeping his big mouth shut.
