You know, I’m reasonably sure this will piss some people off and to the extent it does, I’m absolutely positive I’ll get some e-mails about it, but I think it’s worth highlighting for obvious reasons.
As we wrote earlier today, there are a whole lot of “uncomfortable” questions surrounding Donald Trump’s snap decision to hit Syria with 59 Tomahawk missiles on Thursday. And they’ll be no shortage of coverage with regard to those questions in the week ahead.
Meanwhile, the media has rushed to ask “what’s next?” And “what’s the long-term plan for Syria?” And “how do we reconcile bombing Assad with Assad fighting ISIS?” And on, and on. None of those questions are answerable.
Lost in the cacophony of unanswerable questions is the simplest one of all.
Namely, if Donald Trump is so concerned about the “poor babies” in Syria, then why the f*ck won’t he let them come to America?
If @realDonaldTrump truly wants to help Syrians fleeing murderers, he should drop his effort to ban their children from America immediately.
