Donald Trump’s stunt-like secret visit to Iraq ended up being, like everything he does, an embarrassing saga with negative real-world consequences for America. After he got home and saw the bad press he was getting for exposing the secret location of Seal Team Five, improperly campaigning while he was there, and alienating the Iraqi government, he surely concluded that he’d traveled all that way for nothing. So he decided to just start running his mouth like the fool that he is.
Donald Trump once again doubled down on his mentally incompetent border wall idea, tweeting “The Democrats OBSTRUCTION of the desperately needed Wall, where they almost all recently agreed it should be built, is exceeded only by their OBSTRUCTION of 350 great people wanting & expecting to come into Government after being delayed for more than two years, a U.S. record!” The trouble: every word of that is a lie, that’s a really run-on sentence, and that’s not how apostrophes work.
But the idiot wasn’t done drawing negative attention to himself. He went on to tweet “The reason the DACA for Wall deal didn’t get done was that a ridiculous court decision from the 9th Circuit allowed DACA to remain, thereby setting up a Supreme Court case. After ruling, Dems dropped deal.” Of course that’s not what happened at all. Then he added “Democrat’s say they don’t want the Wall.” That’s still not how apostrophes work.
By the time Donald Trump began quoting Brad Blakeman while trying to defend his decision to withdraw the U.S. military from key positions around the world, everyone was left to throw up their hands and wonder “Brad Blakeman” was supposed to be. Yes, he’s a real person. But considering how often Trump simply makes up people, he easily could have been John Miller or David Dennison.
