It was a thrilling moment for five-time draft dodger, Don the Con.
His stubby little fingers fluttered as he watched those picturesque Tomahawk cruise missiles whoosh from the decks of U.S. destroyers in the eastern Mediterranean, towards an airbase in Syria.
It was the most impressive display of fireworks Chump had ever seen, and his excitement was palpable as he told reporters afterward,
“We've just fired 59 missiles,” he said, “all of which hit, by the way, unbelievable, from, you know, hundreds of miles away, all of which hit, amazing... It's so incredible. It's brilliant. It's genius.
Our technology, our equipment, is better than anybody by a factor of five.”
Okay. Let's stop right here.
If our war machine is so much more advanced than the rest of the world, why do we need to spend over half of our nation's budget on it, as per Chump's new budget proposal?
Logically, it looks like someone's preparing for war. Or, wars.
Logically, this growing militarization has a destination. An agenda.
Setting logic aside for a moment, Rump will do anything to change current narratives going against him like the ongoing investigations about Russia and his campaigns connections.
Who knows what will happen when criminal indictments start getting handed down? What canaries will sing? And what would Dump do to take everyone's attention off these damning confessions?
Starting a war to deflect the narrative is not beyond him.
That same six-year old kid clapping his hands at the sight of those pretty Tomahawk cruise missiles would love to see some more "yuge" fireworks going off at his command.
As for his admission that our military is the best in the world, it doesn't detract him from claiming we need to devote a majority of our national budget to further boost it.
The amazing thing is despite flip-flopping more than a fish out of water on hot pavement, Hump manages to get away with it. Just like his lies.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
