Trump Derangement Syndrome run amuck. This is just simply plain stupid.
Trump’s killing of Qassem Solameini can legitimately be debated. But you can’t logically blame Trump for an apparent accident that occurred related to a foreign policy decision that at least arguably has merit. How about just blaming Iranian incompetence?? They shot the thing down.
Best then, not to make any foreign policy decisions at all. Who knows what could result?
Should be blame the United States Marine Corps, which trained Lee Harvey Oswald to shoot, for the Kennedy assassination?
I guess maybe let’s blame Dwight Eisenhower for the Ukrainian airliner tragedy instead. I mean, he put the Shah back in power in the 1950s, which led Iranian Islamic extremists to take over the country in the 1970s, which led to Iran causing problems in the region, which led to Trump killing Solameini, which led to the downing of the Ukrainian airliner by Iran.
So that’s whom I blame. It was Eisenhower.
BTW, for a leading presidential candidate like Pete Buttigieg to blame the president for such a horrifying incident — even in Buttigieg’s typical slick way of trying to suggest something while maintaining deniability — is repugnant.

“They are also going to do third party again,” Clinton said. “I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said, referring to Gabbard, without mentioning the Hawaii representative by name.
“She is a favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far. That’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she is also a Russian asset.
“They know they can’t win without a third-party candidate, a
