Trump 2015: Saddam “Throws A Little Gas, Everyone Goes Crazy,” & Yada, Yada…

It’s no secret that Donald Trump’s record with regard to strikes on the Bashar al-Assad regime is… how should we put this?… really, really schizophrenic.

Well needless to say, he’s changed his mind about the relative merits of using cruise missiles to punish folks for deploying poison gas.

And while it’s difficult (scratch that, “impossible” is better) to know what the whole story is behind the administration’s abrupt change of heart with regard to Assad (yes, “dead babies” probably played a role, but one certainly imagines there were “other” considerations discussed behind the scenes), it’s worth noting that back in December 2015, then-candidate Trump didn’t seem to see what’s so wrong with “throwing a little gas”…
