Fox News host Lisa Kennedy Montgomery on Tuesday worried that President Donald Trump’s top advisors were pushing him towards a war with Iran.
“I think Mike Pompeo and John Bolton are jumping around like a couple of 11-year-olds at a sleepover,” she remarked during a panel discussion on “Outnumbered.”
“They’re having pillow fights and tickle parties because they are ecstatic at the thought of an increased military presence near Iran. That’s very unfortunate, because the problem isn’t directly challenging Iran with some of their misbehavior. The problem is getting into another Afghanistan and another protracted military campaign –”
“Why do you think that’s what this is?” interrupted co-host Melissa Francis.
“Because that’s what we’ve seen. We haven’t seen the opposite and we haven’t seen any administration be able to do something surgically and short term and then get us out of there with better results. We are still in Afghanistan.”

What the Roman senate’s grovelling before emperors explains about GOP senators’ support for Trump
Unhinged leaders, dynastic intrigue, devastation and plunder: For 15 years I have been researching and teaching the ancient historian Tacitus’ works on the history of the Roman Empire. It has rarely been difficult to find echoes of the history he describes in current events.
I’m not the first person to make this observation.
Economist Paul Krugman: Trump’s ‘white nationalist regime’ is terrible for American Jews
Most of President Donald Trump’s inflammatory speeches are designed to energize his hardcore MAGA base, but occasionally, Trump will try to persuade non-Republican, non-MAGA voters that no matter how much they dislike him, they have no choice but to vote for him — otherwise, “socialist” Democrats will harm them economically. Liberal economist Paul Krugman, in his December 9 column for the New York Times, notes that Trump made such an argument when he addressed the Israeli American Council on Saturday night, December 8. Not only was the speech anti-Semitic, Krugman asserts, but also, Trump failed to make a convincing argument for why Jewish voters in the United States should support him.
