Trump sent aides out to lie about the Suleimani killing and now it has blown up in his face: Morning Joe

Published

According to the panel on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” any political benefit Donald Trump might have derived in killing Iranian military leader Qassem Suleimani with a drone attack was frittered away when the White House allegedly lied about the reasons for the killing.

As host Joe Scarborough explained, the downfall of the White House story has been the ever-changing details that suggests officials are making it up as they go along.

Reacting to Defense Secretary Mark Esper’s appearances on the Sunday cable shows where the best he could say was that President Trump “believed” multiple embassy attacks were planned — and then he admitted he had not seen any intel to confirm that — Scarborough stated, “In the end, killing of Suleimani, probably most influential military leader across the Middle East over the past 30 years, when that isn’t enough, you had to make things up. Of course, they made things up from the very beginning: the attack was imminent. They were coming for us.”

“Why do you send people on Sunday shows? It’s not like everybody ever leaves and they’re like, wow. That worked out well for us. Every week!” he continued.

“I should say, last weekend, you actually could tell from [Secretary of State Mike] Pompeo’s answers, that they were making up this stuff about him and Pompeo was having to push back and — it became very obvious after his 14th interview that Sunday that there was nothing imminent about it,” he continued. “And now we, of course, find out that, from the Sec Def that Donald Trump was making stuff up, yeah, they were going to attack 87 embassies — no truth to it.”

Deeper into the segment, the host showed polls that reveal that Americans overwhelmingly feel less safe since the killing as well as another one showing a majority feel the president made a mistake.

Here are 3 winners and 3 losers from the 2020 Democratic presidential primary debate

Published

on

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg joined the other leading Democratic presidential primary candidates Wednesday night in the fieriest evening of the race so far.

His presence on the stage drew fire from the other candidates, but it also seemed to change the overall tone of the debate, with more attacks, counter-attacks, and passion than was generally seen earlier in the campaign.

Here’s a (necessarily subjective!) list of the winners and losers from the fray:

Winners

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) — Warren hit her stride right as the debate started by attacking Bloomberg for his record on the mistreatment of women, racist policies, and his tax returns. She repeatedly came back to skewer the former mayor, making herself the biggest and most notable presence in the debate. But importantly, she also continuously brought the discussion back to the issues she cares about — like expanding health care, environmental justice,  and consumer protection — while getting in digs at the other candidates on the stage.

After being ripped to shreds during the MSNBC Democratic debate, it became clear that Bloomberg wasn't quite as prepared as the other Democratic candidates.

The Wikipedia article was also changed to indicate that his cause of death was Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

Bloomberg had several unfortunate moments, namely his refusal to release female accusers from nondisclosure agreements, he came out in favor of fracking, he blamed India for China's involvement in climate change, and many many more things.

Moderator: "You've said you'll release your tax returns, but why do Democrats have to wait?"

Bloomberg: "We do business around the world. The document will be thousands of pages. I can't go to TurboTax."
