Donald Trump has given Recep Erdoğan the green light to attack America’s Kurdish allies in Syria. He’s also called on China to look into that Hunter Biden guy. And for good measure, he’s called Mitt Romney a “pompous ass.” All this as additional whistleblowers emerge to make his life more difficult. The COMMENTARY podcast gang, temporarily without Noah Rothman, tries to figure out what’s behind the latest Trump decisions and what effect they’ll have on the president’s fortunes.

    You would think if these guys actually wanted people to listen to their podcast they would be a little less transparent with the description. I was very tempted to listen when I saw Noah was gone, but then I read about the contents and thought better of it. I guess I should be grateful for the advance notice.

    Trump did not give Erdogan the green light, he did not explicitly ask China to investigate Hunter Biden (they wouldn’t of course and China knows exactly what they did) and yes Romney is a pompous ass.

    “Who are you going to believe, Trump or your own lying eyes?”
