Trump Flounders

“President Donald Trump issued a furious, all-caps challenge to the Iranian regime late Sunday night, warning that any threats to the US would be met with unspecified dire consequences.”

You know the expression, “Paint yourself into a corner”, eh? Trump is now in a corner he created.

  • Iran threatens USA – Trump does nothing and looks foolish and weak.
  • Iran threatens USA – Trump invades or bombards Iran and the world counts USA as the aggressor in an unjustifiable war.
  • Iran doesn’t threaten USA – Trump looks like a bully and a silly one at that.

Of course, what failing politicians often want is a damned good war to distract voters from real issues. That’s not happening. He’s stirred up an anthill of political unrest in USA. The GOP will be shot down in the midterm elections either way.
