MSNBC’s Katy Tur was indignant – again.
She had been especially triggered by President Trump’s Wednesday morning White House address during which he discussed the previous night’s Iranian missile attacks on Iraqi military bases which house Americans.
Tur began her Wednesday afternoon broadcast by demanding that President Trump show Americans the evidence that Soleimani, who was responsible for hundreds of U.S. military deaths and thousands of foreign deaths, and who was the mastermind behind the storming of the U.S. Embassy two days earlier, was actually in Baghdad to execute “an attack, an imminent attack.”
Does she think it was a social visit? After the thousands of attacks this terrorist has directed over the last two decades, does she really require proof that he was planning another? She told viewers:
It’s 2 pm in Washington where we’re asking once again, ‘Where is the evidence?’ Flanked by stern, white (extra emphasis on this word), military men, the President addressed the world this morning following Iran’s attack on military bases housing American soldiers last night. He began not by saying ‘Good Morning,’ but by demanding Iran must not be allowed to have a nuclear weapon. He once again asserted without evidence that Qassem Soleimani was planning an attack on American lives, an imminent attack.
What was most striking about this brief clip was Tur’s emphasis on the word “white” as in Trump was “flanked by stern, white, military men.” At a time when Americans are being attacked in the Middle East, she is thinking about the race of the men surrounding the President as he speaks to the nation.
The other remarkable takeaway is that she would demand evidence that this terrorist is really a terrorist.
The left, who have chosen to take the side of the terrorists, have collectively beclowned themselves in the aftermath of Soleimani’s death.
I know, I know, she’s in mourning. I should try to be more compassionate to those who are grieving.
