Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, January 04, 2020

IN SEPTEMBER 2015, then-Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump appeared on the syndicated radio show of conservative media star, Hugh Hewitt, to talk foreign policy. "Are you familiar with General Suleimani?" Hewitt asked the real estate mogul from Queens. "Yes," said Trump, before hesitating. "Go ahead, give me a little ... tell me." When Hewitt told Trump that Suleimani "runs the Quds Forces," Trump responded: "I think the Kurds, by the way, have been horribly mistreated by us." "No, not the Kurds, the Quds Forces," Hewitt interjected. "The Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Quds Forces. The bad guys." "I thought you said Kurds," a sheepish Trump replied.

That's quite a turn around, considering that he doesn't trust or believe the "crooked cops" who would have been the ones informing him on the key differences between the Kurds and the Quds.

Later in that interview Trump said he doesn't like 'trick questions.'

BTW, Colin Powell's chief of staff was on TV this morning. He said that in 2007, Bush & Co had Soleimani in their sights. They decided, rightly, that killing him would lead to unforeseen and potentially dire consequences for Americans around the world. Obama & Co made the same prudent decision.

Benedict Donald doesn't know who Tiffany Trump is, so this is hardly a surprise.

Lets be real here 95% of Americans didn't know who he was 3 days ago. I doubt many of the other presidential candidates did either in 2015. Clinton likely would have been the exception.

If you aren't responsible for national security or diplomacy you aren't likely to know the names of too many foreign military leaders.

I read in the lap dog media that he was the most dangerous human being on the planet.

You'd think someone might have heard of him.

He was also eyeballs deep in the 9-11 plot.

That is, unless you think the US government is lying.
