    It has been consistently observed in Trump that the most recent prompt or advice he gets has the influence. He has a very short attention span and impulsivity, symptoms of ADD.

    Hang on, we arent suggesting that this is more than a fortuitously timed event, for Trump at least, right? There's no suggestion that the chemical weapon attack was somehow orchestrated with US collusion, yeah?
    I shouldn't think so, but Assad has been murdering his own people for long enough that something suitable was bound to turn up. if it hadn't been this it would have been a hospital full of children, he's certainly blown enough of those to bits. Assad was in a position where with his Russian backers having a veto in the security council he just basically thought he could get away with anything, now it looks like he has WW3 brewing on his doorstep, I should think he's getting a bit nervous, and if he folds trump can claim outright victory and a big boost to his ratings sorry approval numbers.
    Asaad's military campaign is being financed by Russia and China and run by Russian and Iranian military advisers. Assad will only fold when they're ready for him to fold. He's done a deal with the devil and now he dances to Putin's tune.

    The circus antics resume.

    White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus later defended the statement, arguing Mr Trump has family members who are Jewish and "there was no harm or ill will or offence intended by any of that"

    Did the production team really need to add those parentheses to the headline there?

    Conspiracy theory: this is all about lifting sanctions on Russia.

    Russia does not really care about Assad and his regime. Sure, they get to sell him weapons, but they could do that to any Syrian regime. They got involved to pick up a fight with the US.

    Trump wants to lift sanctions but needs an excuse.

    Trump strikes a deal with the Russians. You tell Assad to do this, we will respond and tell you off. We send Rex to Russia and a deal is struck. We lift sanctions, you stop backing Assad (at least publicly) for a while. Things quieten down, the media loses interest and then you can go back to selling him weapons.

    Now ... I have no idea if any of this is correct. What is scary is that it is plausible.

    Plausible if the Trump was capable of maintaining a coherent narrative in that orange brain box oh his, I doubt he has the intellectual capacity to formulate such a scheme. But hey, who the fuck knows what'll happen next, it's a tv show presidency and you have to keep the viewers entertained.

    Still can't embed twits, but this pretty much sums up US politics imo
