‘Fire And Fury, Part Deux’: Trump Proves America Isn’t ‘Great Satan’ By Threatening Iran With All-Caps, Unimaginable Suffering

"The mother of all - somethings."

Donald Trump woke up furious on Monday, kicking the week off with a series of tweets that culminated in the President imploring the Department of Justice and the FBI to "drop the discredited Mueller Witch Hunt now!" That, after demanding that Americans tune into Fox & Friends at 6:15 ("NOW!"). https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1021337592904732672 And while there's little doubt that the sycophants over at Fox helped get the President riled up, it's also possible he's still fuming about comments Hassan Rouhani made over the weekend. Specifically, Rouhani said this: We’re not fighting or at war with any country, but the enemies have to clearly understand that war with Iran will be the mother of all wars and likewise peace with Iran is the mother of all peace. Well, Donald Trump is the "mother of all" somethings, and he didn't like that. So, at 36 minutes to midnight, he turned on the all-caps and shrieked the following into the digital void: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1021234525626609666 Call that "Fire and Fury, Part Deux".

    Not sure about being ‘The Great Satan’, whatever that means, but the US is certainly staking out a near-unassailable claim to being the world’s number one ‘Rogue State’. Or perhaps that should be ‘Rogue Empire’.

    As for formulating policy “clearly designed to placate the Israelis”, did anybody notice that over the weekend Israel made long-practised apartheid against its Christian and Muslim populations a formal part of its constitution? Does anybody care? Of course not – the US and Israel are exceptional. Normal values don’t apply.

      Add to that the fact that the special friend also passed a law prohibiting criticism of Israel and Israeli government and filming of it’s soldiers terrorizing children in the streets of West Bank because they dared to play in jewish only street. The only democracy in the middle east, has for decades behaved like nazis but even that is way better to what they have become now. Bloomberg had an article about it few days ago, about the law of “jewish state” and criticism of Israel being a crime now.

    The GOP is now a Mafia. Putin-Trump will throw Iran under the bus to sell LNG freed from the Siberian perma-frost to China and EU. RU is years behind Iran on LNG infrastructure and tankers, a direct thread to Rosneft/Gazprom. Mafia is as mafia does.

    “There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy (R-Calif.).

    Some of the lawmakers laughed at McCarthy’s comment. Then McCarthy quickly added: “Swear to God.”

    Ryan instructed his Republican lieutenants to keep the conversation private, saying: “No leaks. . . . This is how we know we’re a real family here.”
