Liz Cheney blames slaughter of Kurds on … Democrats

Well, she didn’t specifically call out Obama or Hillary Clinton, but give it a few days.

On Fox News this morning, Liz Cheney, a Republican congresswoman from Wyoming and the daughter of the massing heap of discarded organs and tissue that used to be Dick Cheney, blamed Turkey’s invasion of northern Syria on — you guessed it! — Democrats for — you win again! — having the temerity to hold Donald Trump accountable for his numerous crimes.


“I also want to say that the impeachment proceedings that are going on and what the Democrats are doing themselves to try to weaken this president is part of this,” Cheney, who represents Wyoming and is the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, argued.

“It was not an accident that the Turks chose this moment to roll across the border,” she claimed. “And I think the Democrats have got to pay very careful attention to the damage that they're doing with the impeachment proceedings.”

Trump made the decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northeastern Syria after speaking with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan by phone last Sunday. A source from the president's National Security Council told Newsweek last week that the president got “rolled” by Erdoğan during the call.

That last bit is pretty stunning, though to be honest I would have been only slightly more surprised if Newsweek had reported that Trump got “rolls” from the call. Because I have no doubt he’d betray our strategically vital alliances for a lukewarm box of Cinnabon. Especially if they included an extra frosting packet on the side.

It’s one thing for Republicans to dodge, deflect, and dump deuces all across the media landscape, but why do they have to be so fucking bad at it?



I can’t even.

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.
