Cortney O’Brien at Townhall introduces comments by Dan Crenshaw responding to “she who speaks with forked-tongue” Our comments follow.
At a campaign rally last week in Dover, New Hampshire, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) told her audience that she couldn’t think of a good reason why President Trump ordered the recent deadly airstrike on Iranian terror leader Qasem Soleimani.
“Why not a month ago?” she asked. “Why not a month from now?”
She ventured a guess and concluded that it was pure politics.
“One of the questions I raised just right after this came out, does this have anything to do with the fact that Donald Trump is right on the eve of an impeachment hearing?” she asked.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) had a better answer.
“Okay Elizabeth Warren, I’ve got an answer for you,” Crenshaw said on Fox News. “The reason why now is that Soleimani just orchestrated an attack on our embassy, killed an American citizen, and we had very good intel from the CIA, from the DNI, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. They said it was the best intel they’ve ever seen. That there was an imminent attack coming within days.”
“So Elizabeth Warren, that is why,” he added for emphasis.
We know Warren didn’t miss the news about the attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad. Iran-backed militia members and supporters tried to force their way in to the compound last month, and it wasn’t until President Trump sent in reinforcements that the mob retreated.
But Warren isn’t the only Democrat pointing fingers at the president for Iran’s aggression . . .
We would then ask Sen. Warren if she would have preferred Trump waiting until after the next attack planned by
Salmonella Soleimani and why would her response be any different? Would she not accuse him of trying to change the subject from impeachment no matter when or what happens?
Indeed, Trump is such a horrible person that he is making the economy boom, creating less unemployment than any time in decades, solving trade imbalances with China, Mexico and others, winning at so much . . . just to avoid people talking about the Democrat coup attempt through impeachment . . . all of which have increased his job performance ratings and lowered Democrats. Trump is quite the dog wagger.
