Lara Trump: Most Americans have never even heard of the Kurds, so whatevs

The moral depth of these people is breathtaking.

On Monday, Lara Trump — who’s married to Donald Trump’s fourth-favorite tragic mistake — appeared on Fox News at Night. The show’s host, Shannon Bream, asked her what she thought of a New York Times story (“Trump Followed His Gut on Syria, Calamity Came Fast”) that excoriated the pr*sident over his colossally awful decision to abandon the Kurds — a decision that naturally played into the hands of Russia, Iran, and ISIS.

Lara’s response was, shall we say, on the callow side.


“Well, Shannon, I think we should start with the fact that if you ask the average American out there, I think they would have to Google 'Who are the Kurds, and why is America even over there fighting this war?'” Trump responded.

Her comments echo President Trump's frequent claims that he was “elected on getting out of these ridiculous endless wars” and that he should be getting more credit for having built up the military, which he argues former President Barack Obama had “totally depleted.”
Fox News host Bream reminded Trump of the backlash from Republican and Democratic members of Congress and that reports from Syrian Kurds indicate that “many have no defenses, that they're being slaughtered after partnering with the U.S., there are worries that other potential allies in the future… will be hesitant to partner with the US because of what they see now happening to the Kurds.”

I mean, right? Why are we even over there anyway? OMG, you guys!

Lara, look at who’s president. The average American would have to Google to see if the Earth revolves around the sun or the sun revolves around the Earth. Or around Saturn, for that matter.

The average American has a pimiento loaf for a brain.

The average American is you. You’ve never heard of the Kurds, and you have no appreciation for their humanity or what they’ve done for us as allies. Because you’re a Trump, and Trumps are conditioned to be ignorant.

Now go get your husband. He’s loose again.

Is Trump still chafing your arse-cheeks? Then Dear Fcking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump and its breathlessly awaited sequel Dear Fcking Moron: 101 More Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing are the pick-me-up you need! Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” comic relief. And they’re way, way cheaper than therapy.
