Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 18, 2019

After years of deriding the nuclear deal as "the worst deal in history," President DonaldTrump withdrew the U.S. from what's formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and reinstated sanctions on Iran. The Trump administration, already suffering from a serious credibility deficit with allies, is now in the awkward position of demanding that Tehran comply with an agreement the American president has not only derided but pulled out of!

Him demanding Iran obey an agreement that he won't obey describes Fat Nixon's entire life perfectly.

As soon as Pres Trump announced he was pulling the United States out of the agreement, I knew we eventually would wind up at this point.

Pres Trump is seeing the results of his unilateral negotiating tactics in a multi-lateral world.

Now Pres Trump has to go back to the multi-lateral tactics in order to get out of the corner he backed himself into.

This idiot abandons the deal, then acts like the victim when the other party goes on with their life. GOP logic at it's worst = war and economic disaster etc...

I don't see any nation-state losers in these tankers getting blown up.

Putin wins, because the price of oil goes up.
Iran win, because the price of oil goes up.
Trump wins, because the price of oil goes up.

So what's the reason for "escalating tensions." Is it that Trump is worried Iran is winning more than Trump?

The Black Guy made the deal so Trump had to pull us out of it. Now Orange Hitler risks real war to enforce the agreement which we are no longer a party to. He is insane.

Remember that 'Coalition of the Willing'that W assembled? They were dragged kicking and screaming. Der Dotard now faces a large group of allies unwilling to cross the street to spit on him. Trump, daughter-in-law Jared and Fat Mike P now have only the Saudis to support them against the Iranians. Trump will now try to go around Congress to start a war because the adversary will not support a treaty that Trump demands they follow, AFTER he tore up that treaty. I wonder how it will play in Florida, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Ohio when dead soldiers start showing up during the 2020 campaign? Not good...

Remember when any little thing was chase evidence that we were not respected in the world? That we were too weak? Never to be said under a GOP regime.

What the desperate TDS liberal media doesn't understand is that Trump is never cornered because he works in the Oval Office! There are no corners in an oval!

He is flying cornerless ellipses over your polygonal stupidity and desperation!

MAGA
God bless our troops and the makers of
Trumpy Bear
Putin-Kim '20 (and beyond)

Does Trump get mad when he finds out an ex is sleeping with someone else?

We need another a bad guy we can focus on. Even if we have to make them into a bad guy.

They are Others. And we must kill all Others!

Picking on the poor defenseless Mexicans from the Three Mexico's is backfiring badly. We need a bigger tougher deflection. Somewhere else!

Quick!! A shiny thingy over there!The Middle East!

Of course, where all the best and scariest boogie men live. Mooslims!

Hey America, watch Humpy pull a turd out of his hair. (not Eric this time either)

We are much weaker without allies. Trump is too stupid and arrogant to know that. He knows more than the Generals.

"We are much weaker without allies"

Trump has no friends, only people he uses.
He doesn't understand what allies are for.
He's never needed anything more than his daddy's money.

Seriously? You have some "alternative facts" to present on it or something? Or is it just "fake news" and we didn't withdraw, flex our muscles to inflict damage related to it on them and expect them to honor it?

Trump tore up the deal in order to be able to go to war should he ever need to.

Unfortunately for him. Looks like Europe is circumventing us to keep the oil trade flowing.

"Trump has no friends, only people he uses."

Whaaaa? That is just crazy liberali trash talk.

Humpy has lil Kim who sends him big beautiful letters!

And Pooty Poot whom he meets sexcretly whenever he can and jokes on the phone about Russian Hoaxes turning into a mouse.

And then there is Boris from the UK who won't take his calls but they are still BFFs.

And there is always Melanie or Melanoma or what her name is. She is a bit slappy but she is still hanging around.

Then there is his trillions of twits on twitter... who can forget them? They will always be there on his toilet for him to tweet with.

I said this yesterday.

Sheeple said there was no deal. No restrictions. No inspections and cameras. Nothing.

This is your Republican Party. PhesteringBoil represents them well here.

The silence from the Trumpers is not surprising.

It's all bluffing and bullying.

If Trump starts an open war with Iran, he'll be more hated than Lyndon Johnson.

Ok, first off, these Liberal outlets are so out of touch with reality it's ridiculous. Saying that Trump is cornered is OBVIOUSLY seen by Trump as a challenge. The Liberal media is just egging him on so he can continue to do worse and worse and give them more and more to report. Which, from a business viewpoint is great, but from a country perspective this damages our society very badly.

Secondly....wow, I can't say I've followed Slate much but damn are they a bunch of conspiracy nuts. If you have to link an article stating it is proof of a statement you are making, and then that article is just conjecture about possibilities (not making that up, the article they reference actually has a whole list of "possibilities" and no facts or anything) then you are a terrible media outlet who is on the level of the National Enquirer.
