    I haven't blamed Trump for the plane crash - and I haven't seen others do it either. The plane crash was a by product of a situation which began with Trump's actions. That doesn't make him responsible, directly. That responsibility lies squarely with Iran.

    "Democratic congressional leaders and presidential candidates who were unsparing in their criticism of President Trump for the escalation with Iran over the past two weeks largely have gone silent now that the protests on the streets of Tehran and beyond have turned their rage toward the regime — and not the Trump White House."

    Poor Trump haters ---- a broken clock is right more often than they are.

    I guess the extremists never could get their narrative to catch on that somehow poor ol' Iran only blew up the plane because mean ol' Trump scared them to death.

    Gregg Gutfield played a fricking montage of clips of left-wingers on CNN and MSNBC literally blaming Trump for the plane crash.

    Here's just one example...

    For the record, all of this began with Iran and its Shiite proxies in Iraq shelling a base and killing an American.

    The plane crash was a product of Iranian aggression, period.

    If the Iranians were blaming trump for the plane crash the protest would be 24/7 news here. The MSM cover for iran like they do Epstein and the homeless crisis.

    But that isn't what we're being told. The official news (of late) is that he was planning an attack on 4 embassies. So are we to believe the administration or your 'for the record'? It shouldn't be so difficult to justify the actions and decisions of an administration, should it?

    Iran students refuse to walk over US and Israeli flags

    Many students at a university in Tehran have openly avoided walking over US and Israeli flags in an apparent show of defiance again the Iranian government.

    Video shows the students walking around, rather than across, the flags at Shahid Beheshti University campus. The flags were painted on the ground so that those walking along the route would thereby insult both countries - which Iran considers staunch enemies.

    You said, "I haven't seen others do it either." So he showed you a bunch of others.

    I'm calling BS on your bogus narrative:

    This situation began with Iran and one of its Shiite proxies in Iraq (Kata'ib Hezbollah) shelling a base and killing an American. This is the same group that went on to attack our embassy in Baghdad, and the founder and leader of this same group, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, was killed in the same drone strike that took out Qassem Soleimani.

    Unless you believe the attacks in Iraq were ordered by the highest level of Iran's leadership - Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and IRGC C-in-C Hossein Salami - the plane crash was a product of a situation which began with Soleimani's actions. Trump just ended Soleimani's actions.

    Fair enough - I won't argue events. But I ask you, why didn't Trump just say that when asked about the reasons for the strike?

    They get their BS from non-stop wall to wall coverage of MSDNC spin cycle. They tell them what to think.

    I'm not talking about tweets. I'm referring to the briefing and his interview with Fox.

    I don't know what all the hubbub is about...

    ...and frankly I don't care.

    I support the decision to kill him - I don't need to make up excuses to oppose it. Had Obama or Bush killed him, I would have supported their decision to kill him, too. This is not a political issue for me.

    So Mika Brzezinski is fond of reminding us.

    Perhaps, MSNPC didn't report on the Kata'ib Hezbollah strike. Perhaps, they were too focused on impeachment or some other BS to bother reporting how all this began and then started spinning the narrative that Elvis Soleimani got treated unfairly by Orange Man Bad for no good reason.

    Democrats would vote for soleimani if he was alive and running for office in America. Anything to hurt trump.
