Republicans Come Out In Full Force Against Trump’s Syria Announcement: “This Is A Disaster In The Making”

Republicans are appalled that the monster they created is acting like a monster.

Donald Trump tweeted on Monday in support of the White House’s announcement that Turkey will move forward with a planned military operation in northeast Syria as U.S. troops who have been deployed and operating with Kurdish-led forces in the area began pulling back from their positions. It’s an appalling decision, as it throws the Kurds under the bus after they have been fighting ISIS and sends a clear message that we do not stand with our allies.

Instead of supporting an independent Kurdistan, Trump is setting them up to be massacred. The bizarre decision sent shockwaves through the region and Washington, and U.S. officials told Fox News that top Pentagon officials were “completely blindsided” and “shocked” by the order. Trump excels at creating chaos, doesn’t he?

This didn’t sit too well with Republicans Mitt Romney and Lindsey Graham, the latter of which sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Sen. Romney responded to Graham’s tweet calling the “president’s” decision “a betrayal.”

Graham, who enabled the unhinged “president” to stay in power, unleashed a tweetstorm calling the decision “a disaster in the making.”

Nikki Haley weighed in, too.

It took a lot for Graham to wake up and see that the monster his party created is capable of destroying the world.

Conover Kennard
Conover makes tea partiers cry as a hobby. She was Commander of Jade Helm15 during the failed takeover of the South. She's also one of the biggest arseholes on Twitter. At night, she can be found drinking Conservative tears while pulling off the wings of flies just because she can. She is the founder of a Marxist, Commie, Maoist, Socialist site and has contributed to several other sites, blah blah blah. She is an awful person but she doesn't like to brag about that.
