American Woman Rescued in Secretive Military Op, Trump Says
President Donald Trump said Sunday that an unspecified military operation had been conducted in a “certain area” overseas to rescue a female U.S. citizen who was being “horribly treated.”
Details on the operation and where it was conducted were initially being kept “somewhat private,” Trump said, but he added that “we got her out and she’s OK, and she’s back with her parents.”
At the beginning of a White House news conference on the coronavirus, the president spoke to efforts to bring U.S. citizens home from overseas during the pandemic, and cited cooperation from the governments of Peru and Honduras.
“We were able to get a young woman released from a certain area who was being horribly accosted, horribly treated,” he then added.
Trump said he consulted with Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley, who “took care of it. We went in and we got her out, but that was rough stuff.”
He thanked Milley “and all the people involved and people who went in to get her.”
Pandemic? Recession? Hey look over there – an American damsel in distress, BOOYEAH!
Do you really think it’s the same old playbook in action under the Trump Admin?
To be fair, I don’t think that got very wide coverage i.e. was not exactly made a song and dance of in comparison to the other hits like Al Bagdahdi, which was milked for days, if anything, it points to something else. Also I believe the Op involved Gen. Miley directly whom I think is the head of Chiefs of Staff.
My initial thought was, "there is someone back safe, who could possibly name names…"
You gotta be kidding me. Trump’s utterances since the COVID-19 outbreak have been frighteningly moronic and self-serving. And you know I am a huge anti-fan of the Dems. I still wonder if we wouldn’t all be better off if someone decided to “take him out”. He’s a danger to the US and to the planet. Only thing is, we’d be subjected to a never-ending stream of “Q” conspiracies.
Ok, but is it the same old playbook or not?
Imagine Hillary was POTUS. Consider she said everything that Trump has actually said. I mean everything.
How do you feel?
Just imagine another woman saying what Trump has said.
Imagine Obama behaving like this.
A black president uttering the same thing Trump is. Acting the same way.
BTW, I’m not attacking you. I’m making a larger point.
Anyone uttering the same things would be an idiot.
In a twist of fate, Bojo – the man who POTUS called “Britain Trump” – has been diagnosed with Covid-19 according to breaking news. Judging by TV footage a week or so ago, he never did manage to learn to wash his hands properly.
I see I see, I see it now. I get it. I do. I really do. Trumps utterances make him an idiot. Being an idiot justifies and thus qualifies him for assassination. Makes perfect sense. Reasonable. Very reasoned. A pragmatic proposition but there is one problem I see, it might not be televised if the networks cut at the wrong moment, surely that can’t be allowed happen or good for ratings, people will not get to see it, so I think someone should tell Trump, he would want his end to be the best with the most tremendous ratings, the best ever, right?
The rest of us seem to be just settling on him being an idiot.
As for ratings:
Whatever record he breaks, is an incredibly low bar.
I appreciate that its a bit premature but lets assume the content of this article is shown to be correct. The likelihood would be that Trump would therefore be about to get lucky once again.
How many times can you be lucky?
What would this outcome say about those who promoted an global lockdown/recession based on Fergusons initial projections?
As the self appointed shop steward and spokesperson for most users and threads these days, perhaps you should have a word with your comrade @ps200306 and ask him want he meant exactly, and I selectively quote:
“I still wonder if we wouldn’t all be better off if someone decided to “take him out”. He’s a danger to the US and to the planet… Anyone uttering the same things would be an idiot.”
Lest we forget.

During the 2018 White House event, it was noted by Trump that the White House was in “Tip Top” or “Tippy Top” shape.
You’re buying the spin
The simple facts are that the Chinese Government is to blame for the scale of this thing.
No amount of spin or wishful thinking can change the facts of what occurred.
Trump would need a good coronavirus result to break 50% or a 9/11 to break 55%
I’m merely pointing out that Trump repeatedly praised China’s response to coronavirus in February. Theres no spin. Trump repeatedly praised China’s response to coronavirus in February.
Which is pretty irrelevant in the grand scheme of things given what we now know of the timeframe of events.
For example, the WHO also accepted the word of the Chinese. Is it a similarly clownish organisation populated by idiots?
Are the Italians, Spaniards all idiots? The EU which has, even now, yet to agree a coordinated cohesive response?
The obsession with anti Trump political point scoring in the midst of a global pandemic is unseemly.
For what its worth I think his adminstrations response was incoherent to begin with. They appear to be doing as well as could be expected now though.
Dylan dropped a new toon today. Why did he release an epic track about a president’s assassination this week?
