    Because it’s always good news when more lawyers are needed. 

    We could look to the contentious departures of Ty Cobb, John Dowd, Don McGahn, or Michael Cohen to learn the glories of representing Donald Trump.

    Yeah.  That other slime from hell that keeps opening his mouth until someone ELSE gets to SHUT HIM UP. What is that creep's name?  Let me find him.  He's not a lawyer, he's a Senator and he is amazing in his ability to NOT SHUT UP and talk over everyone.  Just like Gowdy.  Howdy Gowdy.  The Trump Puppet who made it big by being a hater like Lindsey Graham.  A turncoat and a hater who thinks he is entitled.  Yeah. This should be amazing.  Amazingly pathetic.  

    Trey Gowdy is a hole that is right in the middle of the butt.  He pretends to be outraged and he defends TRUMP.  Don't make me puke.

    Lookie what I found.  I don't think Trey will have too many people on his side by the time push comes to shove.

    Oooops.  Darn it didn't post.  Well I can tell you all about it.  I'd love to in fact.  The video is all the right wingers ROASTING Trump for pulling out of Syria.

    Let's see: We have ALL OF FOX NEWS that actually reports the news and we have the ones who just have their OPINION and call the President up and kiss his hind-end.  Those idiots on FOX AND FRIENDS?  VERY MAD AT DONALD.  VERY MAD.

    Things are not going well in the support department.  I hope he has done a lot of favors for the Jeffrey Epsteins of the world that have some power that still back this goof.  

    That's his only prayer.

    ‘Fox & Friends’ Host Slams Trump’s Abandonment Of Syrian Kurds

    Co-host Brian Kilmeade, joined by Sen. Lindsay Graham, criticized the president’s move to withdraw support for Kurdish fighters ahead of a Turkish military assault.

    Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade criticized President Donald Trump Monday for withdrawing support for Kurdish fighters and removing troops from northeastern Syria ahead of a Turkish military assault.

    “What kind of a message is that to the next ally that wants to side with us?” asked Kilmeade, normally a reliable Trump defender, who explained the Kurds have been loyal American allies. “I hope the president will rethink this.”

    Help us tell more of the stories that matter from voices that too often remain unheard.

    Co-host Steve Doocy chimed in to argue that Trump’s move fulfills a campaign promise to end wars in other countries. To that, Kilmeade responded: “Abandon our allies? That’s a campaign promise?”

    “All we did is arm them and they did all the work. And now we say, ’Good luck. Good luck surviving,’” said Kilmeade. “Disaster.”


    Brian Kilmeade fights with his co-hosts over Trump throwing Syrian Kurds under the bus: "What kind of message is that to the next ally that wants to side with us? ... All we did is arm them, and they did all the work. And now we say 'good luck. Good luck surviving.' Disaster."

    The White House announced on Sunday that Turkey would soon invade northern Syria, putting the Kurdish fighters ― an ethnic group led by the Syrian Democratic Forces who have been longtime allies with the U.S. campaign against the Islamic State group ― on unsure ground.  

    U.S. troops “will not support or be involved in the operation” and “will no longer be in the immediate area,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement after a call between Trump and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

    Turkey will take custody of foreign fighters captured in the U.S.-led campaign against the Islamic State held by American-supported Kurdish forces, Grisham added. 

    Turkey sees Kurdish forces as a terrorist insurgency, and has long wanted the U.S. to sever ties with the group.

    Trump announced in December 2018 that he’d be withdrawing troops from Syria, but relented after fierce criticism. The announcement led Jim Mattis to resign as defense secretary and then-national security adviser John Bolton to take steps attempting to protect the Kurds.

    Trump’s new decision to abandon the Kurds has already sparked backlash beyond Fox News. A Syria Kurdish official told NBC that “the Americans are traitors.”

    “They have abandoned us to a Turkish massacre. We can no longer fight against ISIS and have to defend ourselves. This could allow ISIS to return to the region,” the official said.

    Also on “Fox & Friends,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Trump’s decision compromises America’s promise to allies.

    “The thing I believe is if you make a commitment and someone is fighting with you, America should keep its word,” McCarthy said. 

    Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) also called into the show to say that Trump’s “impulsive” and “irresponsible” decision to abandon the Kurds has “undone all the gains we’ve made” and “thrown the region into further chaos.”

    “If I’m an ISIS fighter, I’ve got a second lease on life,” said Graham, normally one of the president’s most vigorous defenders. “To those who think ISIS has been defeated, you will soon see.”

    He added: “I like President Trump. I’ve tried to help him. This to me is just unnerving to its core. To say to the American people, ’ISIS has been destroyed in Syria’ is not true.”

    Lindsey Graham calls in to Fox & Friends & calls Trump's decision to abandon the Kurds "impulsive."

    "I hope I'm making myself clear how shortsighted & irresponsible this decision is in my view," he says. "This to me is just unnerving to its core."

    What I read said Gowdy had been asked to join the impeachment defense team, so his appointment is limited to that.  For now.

    True he is not joining the admin. But he will be much better Rudy.

    Yes, like he got the goods in the 12 Benghazi investigations that went nowhere.

    Obama stalled over and over until the committees expired and they would have to reform each time. And yes, we know Hillary lied to the American people about the cause. (It was not a protest of a youtube video gone too far) as the Obama administration claimed. We know this because Trey Gowdy and other Republicans got Hillary emails to Chelea telling her it was a planned terror attack. Email was sent before Rice went on the Sunday shows and lied to the American people. 

    Our DOJ is two teired. You and I could never get by with that stuff. Rich punishment at all.

    Forget how many investigations Gowdy headed up or how it got to that number - he was not successful in "getting" Clinton.  Let's try and answer something about the failure to deliver the goods without bringing Obama into it.  Doesn't matter how many time Obama stalled - nothing came of Gowdy's investigations.

    As I just told you we have a 2 tier justice system. No politican on either side is going to be "gotten" is a game for us little people to watch. Let one of us destroy a phone or hard drive after the FBI asks to see it....Hillary did it.

    Well whenever Trump is accused of doing something wrong he usally tries turning it around and pin it on someone else.  So I think Pee-wee Herman would be a good lawyer for Trump because when someone accuses  Trump of being  a traitor his new lawyer would say I know you are but what am I. Cheers!

    Maybe they should not accuse President Trump of the same things they are doing.

    There are many things we can accuse him of that we are not doing.   No one running the country on our side paid a porn star to shut up before the election or else.  No one on our side did that.  Mike Cohen is in jail so don't deny this one.  OKAY?  Can you gimme this one at least?  Paid a PORN STAR TO SLEEP WITH HIM AND HID THE MONEY AND LIED ABOUT IT.  Must be illegal.  Cohen is paying.

    Used money to hide an affair....never heard of John Edwards. And Edwards actually used campaign money.

    Cohen's is in prison for taxes and business fraud.  You do not go to jail for campaign finance get a fine. Do you know who paid the largest fine in history? Barack Obama.  This post was edited by my2cents at October 9, 2019 5:39 AM MDT
