    He really said/wrote that? Haha, man, the guy is pure gold. If Trump did not exist, we should have made one just for the shit like that.

    Yes. If they escape the prisons they'll go to Europe, and as America that's not our problem.

    He said it during one of his usual unhinged press conferences, I think this was after he defended abandoning the Kurds because "they didn't fight with us in WWII, they didn't fight at Normandy" (paraphrased). He said that too.

    Hilarious. If someone would just make a book of all the shit he said, it would be a comedy gold bestseller.

    I don't think there are any copy editors that would be able to work on that book, they'd all have nervous breakdowns in the first few chapters trying to understand what were actual spelling/grammatical/structural mistakes and what was actually what Trump said/wrote.

    Nah, I'm sure there would some people that would be interested. Like Egyptologists trying to translate hieroglyphs. A Trumpologist! A modern take on archaeology.

    "a move that was criticized by some analysts who warn it will create a vacuum to be filled by powers that don’t share Israel’s interests."

    Business as usual, apparently!

    "Fleeing Kurds free ISIS prisoners in Syria promising they will go after America.
    Trump not worried about ISIS fighters because "they will be escaping to Europe o_O""

    Whoop, nevermind. Why shoot for creating one enemy in a foreign country when you can have two?

    Truth is stranger than fiction. Good grief.

    ....

    Well, I'll just say, that his callous disregard for allies went far enough this time. Just a jail cell won't suffice as his fate no more.

    It's pretty obvious Trump has no idea what the fuck he is even doing, where he is, what his name is, or what time it is.
