“How much of this shit do we have to listen to?” Trump asked

Trump did a talk for donors at Mar-a-Lago last night, in which he explained that he killed Suleimani because he said bad things about us.

In his speech — held inside the gilded ballroom on his Mar-a-Lago property — he claimed that Soleimani was “saying bad things about our country” before the strike, which led to his decision to authorize his killing.

“How much of this shit do we have to listen to?” Trump asked. “How much are we going to listen to?”

Who knew that badmouthing the US was a capital offense? Trump says bad things about most countries; does that mean those countries all have a right to take him out with a drone?

Trump did not describe an “imminent threat” that led to his decision to kill Soleimani, the justification used by administration officials in the aftermath of the attack.

Almost as if that was just the pretext, for public consumption.

He went on to recount listening to military officials as they watched the strike from “cameras that are miles in the sky.”

Of course he did. Big boy playing with real guns! Look at big boy!

“They’re together sir,” Trump recalled the military officials saying. “Sir, they have two minutes and 11 seconds. No emotion. ‘2 minutes and 11 seconds to live, sir. They’re in the car, they’re in an armored vehicle. Sir, they have approximately one minute to live, sir. 30 seconds. 10, 9, 8 …’ ”

“Then all of a sudden, boom,” he went on. “‘They’re gone, sir. Cutting off.'”

That’s four “sirs” in that short passage. He does love being called “sir,” bone spurs or no bone spurs. Next to killing people, it might be his favorite thing.
