Pompeo ripped for blowing off outrage over Suleimani killing as ‘a little noise’: ‘That noise will be Americans dying’

Published

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo hit all the cable shows on Sunday morning to defend the killing of Iranian military official Qassem Suleimani on orders from President Donald Trump, and managed to stoked even more outrage after calling the ensuing worldwide furor “a little noise” in a glib aside.

As NBC Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel wrote on Twitter, “On @MeetThePress Secretary @SecPompeo said killing Soleimani 100% makes America safer, ‘even if there’s a little noise here in the interim.’ I remember, as Baghdad was being looted after Saddam’s overthrow, Rumsfeld said: ‘Freedom’s untidy.'”

Twitter users, many of whom fear that “noise” might result in a shooting war or attacks on overseas U.S. military members, hammered the Trump administration official of making light of the outrage and fears of others over what Donald Trump has wrought.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe shreds Bloomberg for flunking ‘politics 101’ in first debate

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough buried Mike Bloomberg's first presidential debate performance, and thumped big-name Democrats who saw him as the party's political savior.

The "Morning Joe" host said the billionaire and former New York City mayor seemed terribly unprepared for the attacks against his lengthy business and political record, and Scarborough said Bloomberg failed at the most basic skills.

"They'll forgive a candidate that can beat Donald Trump for just about anything, but you're right, it's called a pivot."
