As we watch the inquiry unfold, Trump has forced Hunter Biden to an interview, which was not exactly something he had reservations about but the Biden campaign did as it would essentially be playing Trump’s game. The interview is an opportunity for Warren to attack Joe Biden. Tonight’s debate is that opportunity.
It was no longer in the best interest of anyone involved to remain silent, yet now the can of worms has been formally opened. I believe it was a bad move, and while Hunter Biden is being honest, the media has already shown carefully edited segments that make him appear to be whining. To get the sincerity of the man, you’d have to watch the interview here.
That aside, Trump is looking straight down the barrel of a cannon that is ready to fire. He has done it to himself and there is no quarter to be had. Now, after a uniquely unpopular move to betray the Kurds, footage of the carnage wrought by Turkey has turned sour on Trump. And to make it worse, he’s wavered on sanctions against Turkey. The US forces in the meantime took fire from Turkish bombs, because, of course, with any military deployment, there is equipment. Ammunition and arms. Medics and supplies, other supplies for food, communication, and of course heavy vehicles. You don’t order a withdrawal and have it happen in a day. Clearly, our President has no idea of how the military he commands works. And worse, Trump betrayed a personal promise to the Kurdish leader to protect his town. And Russian forces are ready to replace the position our troops held. Turkey, Iran, Russia, Syria and more are careful to calculate the instability of Trump, but now take the United States as a non-player. And Trump knows nothing of what he has caused.
That’s no surprise; he’s infamous for not being inquisitive, dismissing intelligence briefings or asking for photographs and maps instead of text. He’s a man so unqualified even after almost three years that he is increasingly strained by the pressure he’s under. That pressure showed up last week, as full-blown rage, in two speeches. Speeches in which he swore and cursed and shocked some people with his language.
What everyone seemed to be asking was who had ever heard a president speak that way on the record, in a public forum. It’s a tell, a sign that he’s losing his last shreds of control.
And in the Middle East, we have a cauldron of explosive chemicals being heated over a Halloween-like fire. It is a mixture which cannot be rendered unvolatile. The fire can be allowed to burn down a bit, but that fire has burned for milenia, and it hasn’t been put out yet. Nor can it be now. It’s not a good situation by anyone’s standards. Don’t blame Hunter Biden.
Blame Donald Trump, American Mussolini. A man whose path is beginning to look very bleak.
