    Pete Buttigieg suggests Trump to blame for Iranians shooting down Ukrainian airliner

    Pete Buttigieg suggests Trump to blame for Iranians shooting down Ukrainian airliner

    “Innocent civilians are now dead because they were caught in the middle of an unnecessary and unwanted military tit for tat” — no, the plane was shot down by the Iranians at Tehran airport on the night the Iranians were firing ballistic missiles at U.S. troops, we were not firing at them.

    You just knew that in an era of pathological Trump Derangement Syndrome, Democrats would blame Trump for Iran shooting down a Ukrainian airliner at Tehran airport on the night Iran fired ballistic missiles at bases in Iraq housing U.S. troops. Iran fired the missile, there were no U.S. planes in action over Tehran and we were not firing at them, but somehow Trump would be blamed.

    Laurence Tribe, the TDS-infused Harvard Law School professor, is going there:

    Trump’s “flying in a tough neighborhood” & “it has nothing to do with us” were typical “who, me?” moves. Did it never occur to him that the plane filled with 176 souls would almost certainly never have been targeted by a trigger-happy Iranian missile but for the assassination?

    As crazed at Tribe has become, he sets the tone for #TheResistance.

    So it’s no surprise that an hour after Tribe’s tweet, a major Democrat presidential candidate, Pete Buttigieg, suggested the same:

    Innocent civilians are now dead because they were caught in the middle of an unnecessary and unwanted military tit for tat. My thoughts are with the families and loved ones of all 176 souls lost aboard this flight.

    Remember, there was no U.S. military action over Iran at this time. This was the night Iran launched ballistic missiles at us. We were not firing at them. Our drone attack on Soleimani took place several days earlier in Iraq, not even in Iran.

    It’s insane, but expected at this point to blame Trump for what the Iranians did in Tehran.

    Expect the Tribe-Buttigieg talking point blaiming Trump for Iran shooting down an airliner to become a key Democrat talking point. That’s how it works, the signal goes out and everyone falls in line, including CNN and MSNBC.

    The responses are suitably indignant:

    Just another terrorist sympathizer Dem/Prog candidate.

    By the way, anyone think a Presidential Seal would look good on flannel footie pajamas?

    Up here in Canada it is an absolute article of faith in the MSM that Trump is to blame for this, as well as everything else that has ever happened, including traffic jams and twisted ankles. The fact that the guy they “assassinated” was a mass-murdering terrorist is rarely mentioned, and if it is, it is accompanied by “according to the Trump administration”. It’s a funny old world.

    Alfred E Newman suggests he’s qualified to be President. Comments like this put that in doubt.

    I keep saying this: NO, I repeat NO, person with a name that can be laughed in without even misspelling it will ever be President of the United States.

    It’s just not going to happen. Even Liberals are a bit shy of voting for him because of his name.

    We will not abide a President who has BUTT as part of his name. Look back at all the actual presidents and you will see that none of them have names that can be easily made a dirty joke of. The closest is probably the Bushes.

    Change my mind.

    This little wanker needs to stick to packing fudge and STFU.
