On January 8, members of Congress met for a military meeting on Trump’s assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani. This murder was incredibly unpopular with almost everyone, except Trump and his lackeys, so many expected the briefing to reveal new information that would justify the attack.
Spoiler: He didn’t do that. Both Republicans and Democrats were dissatisfied, some even suspected that there is no specific imminent threat from Iran that justifies such action.
“Of course it doesn’t exist,” said the host of Late night with seth meyers during Monday’s episode. “If Donald Trump says ‘Trust me, the thing exists’, it definitely does not exist.”
Meyers also compared the management of the Trump administration of Iranian relations with the management of George W. Bush of Iraqi relations during his administration, that is, the lie about intelligence to justify a war. “Do you remember when we thought we could never choose a more silly president than George W. Bush?” joked Meyers.
“I think even Trump knows on some level that he can’t hide his lies with charm, because he doesn’t have any.”
