Other Voices | Tom Callaghan: A War if Trump Wants One

Posted on September 24, 2020

Benjamin Netanyahu and Sheldon Adelson have a war all teed up for President Trump if he thinks he needs a war to win re-election. Timing is elegant. Iran is available. Use the Debate Sept 29 to take command of the stage. Remind us of your love for Israel. Commence hostilities first or second week of October.

Bye Bye Biden. Everybody knows a President gets a bump in the polls when our troops are at risk. Whether its a legitimate use of force, well now you’re being technical. Our President has an election to win. Nobody likes Iran anyway so its a win, win, win. Do you think Adelson came in $35 Mil strong in the last week of 2016, and gave five times more than the next largest giver to the Trump Inaugural Committee because he’s a flower child and, like Rodney King, just wants us “all to get along.” C’mon, man, you don’t go into the Casino business because you want to give someone a fair shot.

There are some profound implications here, especially Trump’s decision to hold that campaign rally in Tulsa this past summer knowing beforehand it would kill some of his own supporters, such as Herman Cain. To endanger your most fervent supporters reveals the special kind of contempt Donald harbors for his own people.

The GOPers down here love to wrap themselves up in the flag and it makes them such easy marks for a sociopath that thinks our war dead are losers. The ironies are so 2020 (and delicious).

I’d look for more damning revelations to come.
