‘Say his name’: Marco Rubio shredded for bemoaning disaster in Syria — without once mentioning Trump

Published

on

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on Monday once again found himself getting pounded by his Twitter followers after he bemoaned the humanitarian disaster unfolding in Syria without once placing the blame on President Donald Trump.

Writing on Twitter, Rubio outlined the horrific situation in northern Syria that occurred just over a week after the president gave Turkey the green light to invade.

“ISIS killers will now escape and boost chances of a resurgence,” Rubio wrote. “One of [the] few moderate pro-U.S. groups in region now allied with Assad & Putin. Syria’s future now controlled by Russia and Iran. A significant blow to Israel’s security and boost to Iran’s goal of regional dominance.”

Nowhere in his tweet storm did Rubio once mention that this entire situation was sparked by Trump’s decision to abandon America’s Kurdish allies last week, which set off a calamitous chain of events that has resulted in the release of previously imprisoned Islamic State fighters, as well as the mass slaughter of the Kurds.

George Conway, the husband of Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, called out Rubio for being too cowardly to tell the truth about the president’s actions.

“Say his name,” Conway wrote.

GOP officials admit 2020 platform is basically whatever’s on Trump’s Twitter account

Published

President Donald Trump has shaped the Republican Party into his own image in less than four years on the job, and that doesn't seem likely to change anytime soon.

Nearly half of the House Republicans on the job when Trump took office in 2017 have either retired, resigned, been defeated or are retiring in 2020, and many of the GOP newcomers are devoted Trump loyalists, reported Politico.

“Whether the president wins or loses, his policy views and style have firmly taken over the Republican Party — nationalism and white grievance, those kinds of things,” said Matt Moore, former chairman of South Carolina's GOP. “I don’t think that Trumpy politics will be leaving the stage anytime soon.”

Published

The Trump administration on Tuesday forced all hospitals and states to make a significant and immediate change in how they report coronavirus patient data, hijacking the information to be funneled into the Dept. of Health and Human Services.
