So it appears that Ivanka Trump was actually the one who decided to launch a missile attack against Syria. I'm sorry, when was she elected president again?

Syria made me very upset Daddy. Bomb them...bomb them all.
Courtesy of The Telegraph:

(Eric Trump) also confirmed that President Trump’s decision to bomb a Syrian airbase to punish President Bashar al-Assad for a nerve gas attack last week was influenced by the reaction of his sister Ivanka, who said she was “heartbroken and outraged” by the atrocity.

So let me get this straight.

We just launched an illegal attack against a sovereign country, without first seeking the approval of Congress, because Ivanka Trump was traumatized by some photographs?

Don't get me wrong I was upset by those photographs as well, as I am sure many of us were.

However having an emotional response to a picture is not what should determine a military response.

Especially if that emotional response was from your grown ass daughter who is not currently holding an elected position or seat on your cabinet.

I have to imagine that if we were living in an alternative universe where Hillary Clinton won the election, that if Chelsea approached her sobbing over a photograph and saying that we need do something, her mother would have informed her that they already had a plan in place, and to suck it up because there is no crying in the Oval Office.

By the way in this same article Uday...I'm sorry...Eric also said this: 

Donald Trump’s decision to launch a cruise missile attack on Syria proved he is not in league with Russia and will not be “pushed around” by Vladimir Putin

Uh no.....no it doesn't. 

But nice try.

    Exactly, this proves nothing with regard to Putin. Not much damage was done to that airport, planes flew the next day. Raytheon stock prices (which tRump owns) went sky high. More missiles have been ordered. We the people are being taken on the wildest ride in history, led by the bigest con artist in history. Too bad there is not a single member of the tRump family with BRAINS. Ivanka has had so much plastic surgery, she looks as fake as Kim K. As a comedican once said "All tRump's kids have that unfortunate lower face, thanks to Donald" They DO have strange mouths and chins.

    Is this really so surprising? Hair Drumpf is a sociopath, so of course he won't have any feelings of empathy. He'd be capable of *acting* empathetic if a)it's pointed out how bad the optics look right now; and b)he probably does love his grandchildren in his own possessive, warped way.

    Remember Ivanka is essentially serving in the same role as she did in The Apprentice. So it's not at all surprising she influenced his action.

    As for Uday and Qusay, let's just all agree that Jared Kushner is the son Donald Trump WISHES he had.

  3. For all you Christians out there, Ivanka told her father and sugar daddy, "Give me the head of the one they call Assad the Baptist" and of course the so-called president and resident narcissist complied, with a lecherous smile.

    "Donald Trump. Became president of the United States [Friday] night. After bombing Syria.
    You ever wonder why the pundits say this? He truly became president when he ordered that military strike. Oh yes, indeed, he truly became president.
    Because that’s how we Americans see it, right? Commander in Chief. A man isn’t truly president until he bombs some people, until he orders the military into action, until he commands America in war. That’s what we mean when we say 'became president.'
    You ever ask yourself why one doesn’t 'become president' by feeding the hungry, clothing the poor, or healing the sick?
    I mean, in a supposed Christian nation doesn’t that seem ass-backward to you?
    No?
    Well, maybe it’s just me."

I didn't know anything about Sarah Palin, AK politics etc. This blog helped inform me like no other. The xtian radicals are now everywhere. I made a comment or two on Twitter a couple of days ago, and I got inundated with nasty comments from the Trumpanzees. I just closed the account as there's no reasoning with them. It's becoming like mass hysteria at a Hitler rally in a beer hall in Munich.

That's how royalty works. Duh! Its a little something called "God's Will". Maybe Drumpf can't make America great for everyone, but you can't fault him for making America great for himself and his family. If not, why would he even bother being Emperor in the first place.

    Exactly. Why is Ivanka Trump doing anything in the West Wing? It is beyond all reason why a person who has never held elected office, worked in government or any industry beyond the family’s business interests is sitting in the WH and making any type of decision that affects American lives. It is a disgusting state of affairs. Same with her husband and more so with the person occupying the office of the presidency. I can barely speak with anybody who voted for this man and holds with the belief anyone can be president. No more will I tolerate ignorance and hubris just to make nice.
