The Midnight Hour

The Midnight Hour has come. Trump did the strategically brilliant move of killing the number two man of Iran, thus creating the wonderful possibility of WW III in order to avoid impeachment by pandering to the forever war crowd in the senate to show how tough he truly is regarding Iran. Said move is needed as the Court of Southern NY waits in the wings to talk to The Donald about all things related to money laundering if said POTUS becomes a private citizen.

There are no more adults in the room.

After three harrowing years, we’ve reached the point many of us feared from the moment Donald Trump was elected. His decision to kill Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, Iran’s second most important official, made at Mar-a-Lago with little discernible deliberation, has brought the United States to the brink of a devastating new conflict in the Middle East.

It gets better ...

The administration has said that the killing of Suleimani was justified by an imminent threat to American lives, but there is no reason to believe this. One skeptical American official told The New York Times that the new intelligence indicated nothing but “a normal Monday in the Middle East,” and Democrats briefed on it were unconvinced by the administration’s case. The Washington Post reported that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who last year agreed with a Christian Broadcasting Network interviewer that God might have sent Trump to save Israel from the “Iranian menace” — has been pushing for a hit on Suleimani for months.

If only this issue was as funny as the original Midnight Hour flick.
