Another strange day for disinformation, as Trump implied that the 11,000 Kurds who died fighting alongside US troops may have fought for something less. Like his prior attempt to withdraw from Syria by tweet, he remains unfit. And as a matter of accuracy, unlike Iran’s Grand Mufti’s collaboration with the Nazis, Kurds actually did help the allies win WWII.
Trump’s daily personal disinformation campaign continues on Twitter, but he may be beyond all that now. With failing polls and new impeachment revelations Trump’s desperation continues, “devoid of sound legal reasoning”.
Kurdish forces, did, however, fight alongside the US against Isis for nearly five years, losing roughly 11,000 fighters.
On Sunday, the president announced that US troops would withdraw from the region, and today, Turkey has launched an offensive into north-eastern Syria against Kurdish forces who control the region.
Trump said he learned that the Kurds didn’t help in Normandy from a “very, very powerful article”, and seemed to be referencing a column by conservative opinion writer Kurt Schlichter.

Impeachment inquiry gets worse for the WH.
