During his #COVID19 press conference, Trump announced that he's deploying the Navy to #Venezuela. Wait, what? What's #coronavirus got to do with Venezuela?


Trump is distracting us from his incompetence by threatening war. #HandsOffVenezuela
Trump's justification for the naval deployment is cocaine trafficking. But guess what?? #Venezuela doesn't even produce cocaine! This is just another one of Trump's attempts to #WagTheDog. Check out this map of maritime drug routes. 👇👇👇
Let's take a further look at this map, shall we?
#Venezuela is barely a blip on the map.

If Trump's excuse for deploying ships was truly about drugs, then why isn't the US imposing sanctions & threatening war on Colombia? #WagTheDog

2/8 Make no mistake. General Qassem Soleimani was an evil man responsible for the death of thousands, from employing sophisticated IEDs used against American troops to recent murdering of Iraqi protesters.

The Shadow Commander:…
3/8 None-the-less, this is an act of war, the assassination of a powerful foreign leader, the second most powerful man in Iran, at a time when Trump has just been impeached and is facing trial while ALSO up for re-election.

The recent Ukraine aid/Pentagon revelations were persuading Senate moderates to consider supporting a full impeachment trial, with witnesses -- which terrifies Trump.

So tonight, Trump just started a war with Iran.

Next up: "but you can't impeach a President in wartime!"
Worried about American lives? When Iran takes its revenge (as it must), scores or hundreds of Americans will die. Remember the 1983 Beirut barracks bombings (300+ dead)? Let's pray it's not like that. Tonight, Trump condemned countless Americans to die.

Um, is Trump about to take us into to war with Iran to distract from his clearly impeachable offenses re Ukraine?
BREAKING: Defence Secretary Mark Esper announces that the US will send troops to Saudi Arabia that will be 'defensive in nature' and UAE will provide air and missile defense systems in light of strikes on Saudi Oil infrastructure. #WagTheDog
The Pentagon to deploy US troops to the Middle East on the heels of the Iranian attack on Saudi oil facilities [because there's too much heat on Trump's attempt to extort a foreign government into digging up dirt on his political opponent]. #WagTheDog

For those asking @ the #wagthedog ref to Iran: in 1998 Clinton sent air strikes against Osama bin Laden training camps solely to distract from the Lewinsky scandal, this event eerily mimicked the plot of the movie, 'Wag The Dog' released the year before. #SaturdayMotivation
2-Here's a more specific explanation from Wiki:… "Wag the Dog was released one month before the outbreak of the Lewinsky scandal and the subsequent bombing of the Al-Shifa pharmaceutical factory in Sudan by the Clinton administration in August 1998, which
3-"prompted the media to draw comparisons between the film and reality.[3] The comparison was made again in December 1998 when the administration initiated a bombing campaign of Iraq just prior to Clinton's impeachment over the Lewinsky scandal" ~Wiki #SaturdayMotivation
