Josh Hawley everybody!
this is flagrant hypocrisy of course but I think it also demonstrates Trump never would have done this. a) he’s a massive coward, b) the lure of shrieking bloodlust is strong https://t.co/P2qXxasgPG— ryan cooper (@ryanlcooper) August 26, 2021
Watching Republicans who pretended to be in favor of ending the intervention under Trump turn the second they had any excuse should make it clear that there’s zero chance Trump would have been able to withstand the pressure from the Blob that would have started as soon as the final withdrawal began. Favoring ending wars in the abstract and doing the difficult business of actually ending them are very different issues, and everything about his history suggests Trump would have folded like an Atlantic City contractor the second cable news started beating the drums.
These absolute garbage humans see any display of compassion as weakness. Never commiserate, never feel pity, never show humanity. Always be the biggest asshole. Which is the only way these people, without any redeeming qualities or accomplishments, can feel good about themselves. https://t.co/NHcxsXPbgI— Slava Malamud (@SlavaMalamud) August 26, 2021
