Dying to know, Mr. President: Were those 59 cruise missiles manned?

Post by jserraglio » Thu Apr 13, 2017 7:12 am

One question. Maria Bartiromo asked it more acutely in her Fox Business News interview with Trump but the President ignored her: possibly he did not know the answer: "Mr. President, the 59 cruise missiles you launched into Syria, were they manned or unmanned?"

TRUMP: . . . I will tell you, only because you've treated me so good for so long, I have to (INAUDIBLE) right?

I was sitting at the table. We had finished dinner. We're now having dessert. And we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen and President Xi was enjoying it.

And I was given the message from the generals that the ships are locked and loaded, what do you do?

And we made a determination to do it, so the missiles were on the way. And I said, Mr. President, let me explain something to you. This was during dessert.

We've just fired 59 missiles, all of which hit, by the way, unbelievable, from, you know, hundreds of miles away, all of which hit, amazing.

BARTIROMO: Unmanned?
Brilliant.

TRUMP: It's so incredible. It's brilliant. It's genius. Our technology, our equipment, is better than anybody by a factor of five. I mean look, we have, in terms of technology, nobody can even come close to competing.

Now we're going to start getting it, because, you know, the military has been cut back and depleted so badly by the past administration and by the war in Iraq, which was another disaster.

So what happens is I said we've just launched 59 missiles heading to Iraq and I wanted you to know this. And he was eating his cake. And he was silent.

BARTIROMO: (INAUDIBLE) to Syria?

TRUMP: Yes. Heading toward Syria.

I didn't know you were also putting this in a new thread but I ask the same question I just asked in the Times thread I posted:

I'm confused-are you equating what you quote from the interview

BARTIROMO: Unmanned? Brilliant.

with this

""Mr. President, I'm dying to know: were the 49 cruise missiles you fired into Syria manned or unmanned?"

Regards, Len

Right, It would be mighty white of Trump to answer an honest question.

Not a bit of it. Ya gotta go by your gut not your head, just like our President does.
No way do I want to go like Trump does-the amount of flip flops has reached epic proportions-for now he's coming after Russia and Putin finally and he's back with Nato! Regards, Len :D

Well, he probably really thinks he solved all these problems. Xi Jinping made allowances when he dealt with this proverbial American ingenue and patiently tutored him on the complexities of China/Korea history. Imagine Zhou Enlai lecturing Nixon or Kissinger!
