Nancy Pelosi’s underhanded attack on President Trump backfired in a major way.
Obama couldn’t help admitting he’d done exactly the same thing.
Barack Obama shut down one false fact Nancy Pelosi tried to get away with.
If Donald Trump said that the sky was blue the Democrats would probably start saying that it was red.
They change the standards at every opportunity just to take cheap shots at Trump.
It’s not even helping them long term.
The polls show that Nancy Pelosi has helped Trump enormously by impeaching him.
But that isn’t stopping her outrageous behavior.
The Democrats’ hatred for Trump is damaging their own Party because they are attacking Trump unthinkingly.
They should just stop to think whether they would be okay with an action if Obama did the same thing.
Nancy Pelosi is throwing a fit because she didn’t approve Trump killing a terrorist and she should be able to call Iran’s secretive Quds Force commander, Qassem Suleimani, a terrorist because it was Obama who put him on the terrorist list.
Trump isn’t the first President to approve airstrikes in the Middle East without congressional approval.
In fact, Obama launched 2,800 attacks on the Middle East without congressional approval.
According to the Daily Wire:
After President Donald Trump ordered the U.S. military to take out Iran’s secretive Quds Force commander, Qassem Suleimani, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the president should have asked for permission from Congress before conducting the airstrike.
“The Administration has conducted tonight’s strikes in Iraq targeting high-level Iranian military officials and killing Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani without an Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) against Iran. Further, this action was taken without the consultation of the Congress,” she said Thursday night in a statement.
She also said “The full Congress must be immediately briefed on this serious situation and on the next steps under consideration by the Administration, including the significant escalation of the deployment of additional troops to the region.”
But Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, launched more than 2,800 on Iraq and Syria without congressional approval.
Bureau for Investigative Journalism reported in 2017 that there were “ten times more air strikes in the covert war on terror during President Barack Obama’s presidency than under his predecessor, George W. Bush.”
The Democrats like to act like the expanding powers of the presidency are all due to Trump grabbing power instead of realizing that they have gradually grown over time.
In 2014 the New York Times ran an article that said:
“The White House believes that Congress’s 2002 authorization of the Iraq war — and not just the 2001 authorization to fight Al Qaeda — provides a legal justification for President Obama’s air campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, the Obama administration said Friday.”
Nancy Pelosi was okay with military action in the Middle East until Trump came along.
She is a complete hypocrite.
Do you think her crazy double standard is destroying the Democratic Party?
