Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, January 10, 2020

Relatively unheard of outside of intelligence circles, deceased Iranian General Qassem Soleimani has surged into 4th place in the national Democratic primary poll among likely Democratic voters. Just days after President Trump ordered Soleimani's killing in Iraq for orchestrating an attack on the Iraqi US embassy and decades of bombings in the region, many Democrats think he has the stuff to beat Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

"He was a great man," Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) said of Soleimani. "That's why I am proud to endorse him as my favorite candidate in the 2020 primary."

Analysts are quick to question what people are doing selecting a dead Iranian who cannot legally run for office in the Unites States but a spokesman at the Democratic National Committee said, "Dead people have been voting for our candidates for a long time. It's about time that we allow a dead person to run for office!"

If Putin jumps in as a Republican it's all over for Trump.

Don't you guys ever get tired of this junk? In 2003 this was one of your themes, accusing people who opposed George W. Bush's insistence upon was as terrorist sympathizers.

It won't work this time.

Well when you want to investigate the death of a terrorist and try to spin it for political gain, you might be terrorist sympathizer!

Fortunately for Americans, Soleimani's fellow Iranians gave Trump a way to save face and de-escalate after his idiotic blunder-- one of way too many to count.

It's amazing that the Trump administration has to rely on Iran so heavily!

This is why no one likes you and you have no friends.

The issue is not the death of a terrorist. The issue is George W.....Er....Donald Trump trying to start a war by his own hand and for his own personal advantage.

This may as well be 2003 but for two things:

1) Trump is accelerating events even more than George did.

2) Very few people aside from the Faithful are buying Trump's line of crap.

Why dont you find it funny? Because it's so plausible?

Its sad when our commander in chief has to be treated like a fetus by a foreign country like Iran in order to avert potential disaster. you;'d think we could elect wiser, smarter, braver representatives.

#7: Well said. AM continually and intentionally tries to obfuscate or mischaracterize what is being said. It really is quite tedious.

Do you know what the word "plausible" means?

If so, explain how it fits in this scenario.

I don't have a problem with satire. I've actually found the BabylonBee's articles funny, thanks to Nulli for the introduction.

But. I personally find the Borowitz Report to be hilarious and better written.

Some headlines from the Borowitz Report.

Trump Furious at Iran for Distracting People from Impeachment for Only Two Days

"When I did that drone strike, I thought it would knock impeachment out of the news for at least a month," a visibly enraged Trump said

Ayatollah Mystified That He Is the Only Dictator Trump Dislikes

Speaking to reporters in Tehran, the long-reigning tyrant expressed puzzlement and dismay that "for some mysterious reason, I leave him cold."

Giuliani Kidnapped by Ukrainian Circus

"We saw this guy acting entirely bizarre, and we decided we had to have him in our circus," the proprietor said. "It's hard to find a sideshow attraction with that much potential."

@ Comrade Mattress, as a Putin sympathizer as you are, you shouldn't be questioning anyone else's allegiances.

Yeah, it's soooo plausible.

What's funny is you lament division in our politics while assuming it's "plausible" that libruls would elect an Iranian general (absurd Constitutional considerations aside...) POTUS.

A Trumper will actually behave Christlike before that happens.

As much as I enjoy some of these memes, like Democrats flying flags at half-mast to mourn the Salami guy's death, a certain degree of subtlety is needed in order for it to be funny.

This is too over-the-top.

This seems likely. Just like "Make America Great Again" resonated with GOP, "Death to America" resonates with the Democrats.

Massive DNC voter fraud ahead....
