‘Your agony is delicious’: Rick Wilson brutally shames Lindsey Graham after Trump’s betrayal of the Kurds

Published

on

Anti-Trump conservative Rick Wilson on Wednesday delivered a scathing rebuke of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for continuing to enable President Donald Trump even after the president betrayed America’s Kurdish allies.

Earlier in the day, Graham angrily accused Trump of having “shamelessly abandoned” the Kurds after the Turkish military began launching military strikes against U.S.-backed militias in northern Syria. The Trump-backing senator also said that the president’s actions guaranteed the resurgence of ISIS.

Wilson quickly pounced on Graham’s howls of anger and shamed him for ever believing that he could get the president to do his bidding by sucking up to him.

“Your agony is delicious,” Wilson wrote. “You see the threat but you lack the courage to call out the problem by his name. You have to break with him, and you have to take the pain, because that’s your punishment.”

The New York Times reports that Turkey on Wednesday began a military operation aimed at taking out a militia that the United States has backed in its fight against Islamic State. Other reports have claimed that civilians have started fleeing Ras al Ain and Tel Abyad, two border towns that are being targeted by Turkish airstrikes.

Elise Stefanik shredded by local columnist for selling out to Trump: ‘She’s not one of us’

Published

on

Elise Stefanik (R-NY) has been dubbed a "rising star" by President Donald Trump for her sycophantic defenses of him during the House impeachment inquiry.

But Ken Tingley, a newspaper columnist at the Glens Falls Post Star in upstate New York, believes that her strident defenses of the president will cost her dearly in her district.

In his latest column, Tingley offers a scathing assessment of Stefanik's character by pointing out that she swooped into the district despite not living there after a career that suggested she'd rather be running the Republican National Committee than representing New York's 21st district.

FBI officials are scared to look into Ukraine — because of what Trump did to the ones who investigated Russia: report

Published

on

According to Yahoo News, the FBI is interested in interviewing the CIA whistleblower whose complaint about President Donald Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine triggered the impeachment inquiry — but at least some FBI agents are frightened of getting involved because of how the president declared partisan political war on the agents who investigated his campaign's contacts with Russia.

One former senior FBI official said that while many agents were eager to pursue this evidence, others "didn’t want to touch [the whistleblower complaint] with a 10-foot pole because of the Russia investigation."
