The President, in the course of one day, stabbed an ally in the back, then warned another ally that defying his "great and unmatched wisdom" will lead to the economic destruction of his country's economy.
On Putin's birthday.

So we’re all agreed that Trump surprising the Pentagon with an enormous decision was just Putin grabbing what he can before the cops show up, right?

In Trump’s heirarchy of values, Putin always beats the Senate GOP.

Everything @realDonaldTrump does on the world stage benefits Putin.
Everything Donald trump does that benefits Putin is enabled by the Republican party.
Get your rulers out and draw the lines.

Reporters need to ask every House & Senate Repub what they think of this, if it concerns them the CiC is not in touch w reality
AND DONT LET THEM ESCAPE!

Waiting for the hot take that says Trump is distracting from impeachment by inviting a genocide against the Kurds. He's not. This is just what happens when your serial criminal president is also a traitor, serves Russian interests, doesn't understand foreign policy & is immoral.

“Nobody wants to be the zebra that strays from the pack and gets gobbled up by the lion,” a former senior administration official said in assessing the current consensus among Senate Republicans. @philiprucker @costareports https://t.co/R7YXo8vyu2

JUST NOW From a Fla. member of the G.O.P and a veteran: "If there were any other viable Republican candidate for president I'd vote for him rather than Donald Trump after what he did to the Kurds." @realDonaldTrump

The private conversations with elected Republicans have always been more hostile than what they say in public. They are decidedly more hostile after the last 72 hours.
— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) October 7, 2019
Republicans are not speaking out publicly against Trump — that has not changed.
But in the last 24 hours or so, many senior Republicans who are very friendly with Trump have completely shut down and stopped defending Trump off the record.

Can’t wait to hear from all these “Republicans in private” who say they’re concerned about Trump’s actions. What a story they’ll have to tell when he’s out of office, there’s book money to be made and no political costs to them.

This is what I don’t get. Where are the GOP senators not up til 2022 or 2024, when Trump is likely gone and disgraced? If one steps forward now, he or she would take some heat now but could be president in 2024 or 2028. https://t.co/UAMoahKT3O

We’re gonna see some anti-anti-Trump takes soon to the effect that he’s obviously not well and therefore it’d be best not to destabilize him further by impeaching him
