Unhinged, chaos, whatever...

Contradicting Trump, Bolton says no withdrawal from Syria until ISIS destroyed, Kurds' safety guaranteed

CAT Tracks Editor's Note:

Bears repeating: "(Donald J. Trump) is demonstrably unfit for office."

After his December 19th pronouncement of an immediate pullout of U.S. troops from Syria, his Secretary of Defense quit in disgust (although The Donald now unashamedly claims to have fired him.)

With the new year, his White House national security adviser tries a different tactic, staying and announcing a totally contradictory policy towards Syria. Hmmm...wonder if the talking heads on Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and Ann Coulter will demand Bolton's firing (like they demanded that Trump shut down the government after he had already agreed with the unanimous resolution by the United States Senate to fund it?)

And, please, don't overlook the closing comment by Trump's (Acting) Chief of Staff, trying lamely to defend his own reputation (and Mattis, Bolton, et al):


And, a documented 15 lies a day?!

Donald J. Trump personifies the old joke about lawyers, about when you know that they are lying...

...when his lips are moving. (My personal nominee for most brazen lie, especially to a captive audience.)

Forget the obligatory "God bless the United States of America."

God help us all.
