Trump and Judy

The very day of Donald Trump’s retaliatory airstrike on a Syrian airbase where 59 Tomahawk missiles mostly landed harmlessly outside its periphery or carefully avoided damaging most of the Syrian aircraft and runways there, Syria launched further deadly airstrikes on civilians from the same airbase. In response to the Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad’s shrugging off of Trump’s strongly symbolic and well publicized attack against Syria that cost the U.S. $90 million, Trump held a press conference today to announce that he has again punished Syria with another very expensive and highly symbolic attack that will leave the Syrian military once again, greatly damaged…symbolically.

Trump explained that he ordered a strike on Syria with a devastating puppet show that was executed by the U.S. military. It is understood that the puppet show cost American taxpayers approximately $78 million dollars and was staged on the deck of the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier in the Eastern Mediterranean. The puppet show was successfully launched and carefully avoided taking out the mass-murdering, Syrian leader, Assad, any Syrian soldiers or equipment, any Russian or Iranian soldiers supporting them and their favorite lunch spots.

Trump declared that it is important for the world to see the US perform its responsibility as a moral leader and that he hopes they appreciated this performance…also mentioning that it’s available same day on Blue Ray, DVD and pay per view.

“What has happened in Syria is terrible, just terrible, I mean it, totally terrible, it’s awful,” Trump stated. “It’s bad, really bad, so bad, unbelievably bad, I can’t tell you how bad it is. But it’s bad. I had to draw a line in the sand that we’re not going to allow such really awful terribleness…and badness…to happen in Syria. So we have punished them with a very, very damaging show of force that I believe will stop the use of chemical weapons in Syria. By the way, the main puppet which is based on me says some really tough things, believe me, and after he hits the puppet that likes using chemical weapons, both puppets really get it and shake hands,” Trump recounted. “And we had a really great puppeteer for me and the Syrian, he works in Moscow and is so good, you can’t believe it.”

Trump closed his press conference by saying that while he doesn’t have an actual policy on Syria and expects this to be the last isolated attack he makes on the country, he cautioned, “However, if Syria launches another horrible attack and I see a lot of video of it and I’m being hammered by fake news about all this Russian stuff that’s phony anyway, believe me, I might order another devastatingly symbolic attack against Syria…maybe I’ll have thousands of marine paratroopers punch their pillows, maybe I’ll order Navy SEALS to toilet paper an airfield, who knows what I’ll do but I’m not going to tell our enemies in advance, I’m too smart for that!”

    I love this article, AdLib! You nailed it.

    Trump’s “outrage” over the perfidy of the Assad regime plays a lot like the oft cited scene from “Casablanca”:

    When your self image depends entirely on winning as trumps does, cheating is just around the corner from a very early age. Now I like to golf, not very well, but one aspect I love is the honesty amongst the players, even to the point of calling fouls on themselves. I’ll bet Trump cheats on the course, and having played in foursomes knowing one guy is cheating takes that honor away and destroys that days play. This is what’s happening now in our political system, we are trying to use an honor system that we once had with one side who’s very goal is to cheat every day, and our honor as a country is being eroded daily.

    The Punch and Judy Show. Perfect, AdLib! I saw one in England once, and was shocked at the violence it portrayed. So putin is Punch? That figures.

    I will believe trump and putin when the oceans turn to gold. The day of the strikes, just after midnight, I posted my doubts and that this was nothing more than a coordinated firework display to boost trump’s image at home, and take the heat off the Russia links haunting the WH. Now I find this AP article that doesn’t even surprise me, and if true, should prove to sceptics, just how far putin is prepared to go in his warped quest for “world domination”. Putin and Assad are monsters, and the trump cabal are catching up.

    I would say that their plan has backfired miserably, and as this administration continues to shoot itself in the foot, I can’t contain my Schadenfreude. What a bloody mess!

    Official: Russia knew Syrian chemical attack was coming

      Hey Kalima, I gave Punch, Trump’s hairstyle so he’s supposed to be Punch, Putin is the one controlling the puppet Trump.

      It does seem terribly obvious that the missile attack on the airfield was all for show, no meaningful damage and Russia and Syria had plenty of advance notice too keep clear.

      The irony is that it is Trump’s nature of making the latest outrageous thing he says or does fade away quickly as the next one comes. In this rare case where he’s gotten praise from war mongers and MSM weasels, it is still fading away fast.

      And helping that is the info in the article you posted and other articles exposing this sham of an attack. Easy come, easy go, not enough substance in this scam to last.

        So you did. Sorry, early morning blurred vision.

        I have to wonder how they could believe that the facts would stay buried about something as loud and yet meaningless as this bad performance? The hype is that putin is such an expert at deceit and treachery in the games he plays, but this little stunt would prove otherwise. Maybe he underestimated the stupidity of trump, and his inability to pull this off convincingly? The die is cast and they both come out smelling of shit.

        I read somewhere that a former aide said that trump and bannon’s main motivation in the WH, apart from the power thingy, is revenge against those who said or did something against them, especially President Obama’s Press Correspondence dinner, when he ridiculed trump. Being as he holds grudges, I can easily believe that.

    If it truly so. If instead of a real live nutcase attempting to show the world he’s not insane we did actually just have a Punch n Judy show I would be ok with it. But this parody is deadly and the ones placed in the ‘check’ position seem as ‘un-balanced’ as the one pulling the strings.

    • AdLib says:

      gyp46, I sure wish Trump could get the ego gratification he needs from a Punch and Judy show instead of throwing bombs around and trying to sabotage the lives of Americans, especially the most vulnerable.

      Trump is a vicious parody of a man that’s hard to parody because nearly every exaggeration you try to think of could become fact tomorrow.

      But it doesn’t keep me from trying!
