Don't often do youtube but here Trump talks about himself in the 3rd person (beginning and at 1.16).
Didn't age well ...

Spoiler:


Officially this is deleted from ''his'' desk. Does he believe that, if he can't see it, no one can ?

BEVS is right. The USA soldiers and mercenaries are an occupying force in the Middle East, and it's they who are the terrorists - except in the eyes of US patriots, of course. (It was a mercenary - "contractor" in the jargon - who was killed by the protestors.)

The jargon now is not Contractor but Protester.

Even CNN somewhat reluctantly have been covering what a nasty bastard this guy was and how he has the blood of thousands on his hands, he did the Ayatollah's dirty business.

No it isn't . A protestor is just that. A protestor.

A mercenary remains a mercenary. A hired hand . Sometimes preferring to be called security contractors. Neither a mercenary nor a security contractor would be a protestor .

I have been saying this for years.

The ship has probably sailed on a contested convention but I don't rule out a Republican going around that and running as an "independent." Particularly if it seems the race will be something like Trump vs Warren.

The Guardian is not calling what happened at the embassy a "protest." They said it was "a two-day siege of the US Embassy in Baghdad by PMF militants and their supporters."

The graphic in this article from The Guardian says

"31 December

Hundreds of protesters stormed the US embassy compound"

I quoted the one from this morning, not yesterday morning like you did.

What happened does not fit any non-radical person's definition of a "protest."

The article I posted is date stamped Jan 3rd and is what is currently linked from the front page of The Guardian's website.
