No “War Bump” for You, Donald: America Doesn’t Believe You
If Donald was hoping that assassinating an Iranian general would make him look strong and divert attention away from his impeachment, hoo boy, did he ever figure wrong:
55% of Americans believe the US drone strike that killed Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani has made the US less safe — this included nearly a third of Republicans. Only 24% of Americans believe the strike made the country more safe, the poll said, and a majority of Americans (52%) also said Trump’s behavior with Iran was “reckless.”
The poll also found that 52% of Americans believe the attack would make Iran more likely to develop nuclear weapons, 69% said Iran would be more likely to attack US interests in the Middle East, while 63% said there would be terrorist attacks on the American homeland, and 62% said the US and Iran would go to war.
Anyone but tried-and-true Cult 45 members and QAnon doofuses reacted to Trump’s provocation with screams of “WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING???”
Despite early reassurances from hacks like Josh Treviño that “Relax, Trumpie has a plan,” the more that comes out about the killing of Suleimani, the more we are all having to realize that Trump is an absolutely wretched planner, he doesn’t know what he’s doing, and all the excuses in the world aren’t going to cover this up for him.
Look for the spinning to get more & more desperate in the weeks to come. Soon, there will be another SQUIRREL for the media to chase, however.
