Trump: We’re Not Going Into Syria… Unless We Do.

Our Dumbass-In-Chief can’t figure out how to not contradict himself inside the same sentence. Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola, and Jayar Jackson, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“President Donald Trump on Tuesday tried to clarify his administration’s policy toward Syria after ordering missile strikes on a Syrian air base last week in response to a chemical attack.

“We’re not going into Syria because you know there were some questions,” Trump told Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo. “But when I see people using horrible, horrible chemical weapons—which they agreed not to use under the Obama administration, but they violated it.”

Trump’s policy toward Syria was unclear following Thursday’s strikes, with members of his administration offering slightly different explanations for how the President would proceed going forward. Trump on Tuesday said that his administration would not get involved in Syria, but did not define exactly what that meant.

“Are we going to get involved with Syria? No,” he told Fox Business. “But if I see them using gas and using things that—I mean, even some of the worst tyrants in the world didn’t use the kind of gases that they used.””*

  1. Notice how TyT has not covered any of the Islamic fundamentalist attacks going on around the world. I like how at first Cenk would just get pissed, and plead to other Muslims that that was not the right way to go. Now, he has reached the denial phase. He will eventually come around to acceptance..Lets wait

  2. (Having His Cake And Eating It To)
    i thing i would have gone with something like…
    (Trump wants to have his beautiful children and eat them to).. no? xD

  3. Setting aside the contradictions, Trump lacks the ability to speak coherently. You can see that he says words as he thinks them. Trump cannot think coherently. He says words as soon as those words pop into his head. He is mentally incapable of forming a complete thought.

  4. I one tel you people some don't like what trump.did talk too much ..start the war wil see how you fckers will burn burn burn like fcking casper

  5. Trump : heading ro Iraq   Reporter: you mean Syria ?  Trump: yea, Syria, whatever, i just want you to know this.  lol, that is awesome , this liar is the president of the US, trolololol

  6. "During the most beautiful chocolate desert you've ever seen I explained to the Chinese Premier how incredible it is that our million-dollar-a-piece missiles all hit their target in Iraq… oh… I mean Syria!!!" WTF America?! How is this guy!?!?!

  7. it'd be funny (not really) if another nation attacked the U.S. because of the awful poisoning of thousands of Michigan residents…

    USA, the epitome of hypocrisy.

  8. why does he always say 'beautiful' kids and 'beautiful' babies? sounds really weird… O.o

  9. he says Obama should of done it a long time ago yet his tweets contradict that statement for he is a dumbass

  11. he such follows his jew masters, such like hilary would 🙂 elections mean give one side hope for 4-8 years but keep in controll by set the 2 main parties – its a rigged game

  12. Well, this is a man-child who thinks grabbing a woman by the genitals isn't the same as 'going in to' her either, so …

  13. Jesus trump has some serious DSLs lol yet another embarrassing republican retarded false leader who cant speak worth a shit clearly has unmedicated Asperger syndrome.

  14. TYT are really just a bunch of snowflakes, this fucker just can't get over it that he got the Presidency over that corrupt lying bitch Hilary

  15. Ana is so hot I can't even think about the what's being said…she is a wonderful distraction…Beautiful woman

  16. If trump stays in office we'll be having some chemical weapons shot over here, this man is a warmonger .  I just hope we make it though these 4 years without bombs being shot over here, we're doomed.

  17. The comments are funny
    Lately I've been watching a lot of "right wing" alternative media and the culture of the comments are different.
    They are arguing against something much deeper and nuance than you guys.

  18. Remember, you should take Trump SERIOUSLY, not LITERALLY. And didn't Trump criticize and implore Obama NOT to bomb Syria for the last chemical weapons attack? So how is it now that he says that Obama should have launched these strikes? Oh yeah, have to remember to take Trump SERIOUSLY, not LITERALLY. Got it.

  19. we see usa will vote antichrist. they are the evil nation all religions mention. atleast when they all go to hell. the millions they murder and cheer and support as they kill. these dead will get justice and watch from heaven. as the americans and jesus hating ziorists are dragged to hell.

  20. The young turds living happily in their little fantasy worlds, who have not yet understood the basics of politics. You don't get in if you're not crooked. Trump=Hillary= Obama= Bush=Clinton =… different faces working for the same globalist agenda and you idiots believe this whole show…

  21. Why do people believe what RT have to say? It's all Russian propaganda and CCTV is Chinese propaganda. Please stop watching them.

  22. I agree with the commentators on the issue. However, the "bombs" in the national anthem are actually British bombs/rockets, most of them anyway.
