Wednesday morning President Impeached gave a twitter shout out that he “wanted everyone, Republican and Democrat, to vote their HEART!”
This is in reference to this story, via CNN, that the House readies vote to repeal Iraq war authorization.
Lawmakers in the House are set to vote on Thursday to repeal the 2002 authorization for the use of military force in Iraq and to block funds from being used to wage war with Iran, in an effort to curtail President Donald Trump’s military actions in light of heightened tensions with Iran.
Members previously passed both bills in the House’s version of the annual National Defense Authorization Act, but the language was stripped from the final version after negotiations with the Republican-held Senate. The effort gained new life after the Trump administration’s decision to carry out a strike that killed Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in Iraq in January.
The 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force, or AUMF, measure, authored by California Democratic Rep. Barbara Lee, calls to repeal the nearly two-decade old authorization used by Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama for certain military attacks in Iraq. Members expect a handful of Republicans to side with Democrats on the vote. Earlier in the week, the White House put out a veto threat on the measure — signaling the administration expected Republicans to vote against it — before Trump appeared to reverse course by tweeting Wednesday that Republicans should “vote their HEART.”
Some officials in the administration have cited the 2002 AUMF as the legal authority used in the strike against Soleimani, including White House national security adviser Robert O’Brien, who said the attack was “fully authorized under the 2002 AUMF.” Yet Defense Secretary Mark Esper has instead cited Article II of the Constitution as the authority underpinning the strike.CNN
Meanwhile, President Impeached received updates on the Coronavirus. We don’t know what those updated entailed, but whatever it was “they are on it 24/7!”
Meanwhile, Wilbur Ross weighed in on the coronavirus subject…
Right. Moving on…
… to that one where he Twitter pins to the top of this twit time-line at 6:00 pm:
… to that one where President Impeached sends out Dear Leader’s new
North Korea White House propaganda video …
And with that, so ends Dear Leader President Impeached’s Wednesday twit fest.
Thrusday, January 30, 2020.
Upon waking Thursday morning, our Dear Leader President Impeached has graced us, his lowly subjects, with only 1 tweet and 1 retweet … so far.
The retweet at 7:04 am … that one, in case you missed his sign off last night – … Donald J. Trump Retweeted…
to that one telling us that, “… he is deranged!” …
And that concludes Thursday’s “he is deranged!” edition of President Impeached’s tweets as of now.
According to his posted public schedule for today via Daniel Dale …
After receiving his *cough* intelligence briefing, Trump is off to Warren, Michigan to ‘tour Dana Incorporated‘ and will ‘deliver remarks’ while there about
his awesomeness USMCA.
He will then jet off – Busy, busy, busy! – to Des Moines, Iowa to those lucky, lucky peeps out there who will choose to gather at Drake University’s Knapp Center for a KAGA Rally starting at 7:00 pm central time this evening.
There will be a posted rally thread at ~5:55 pm eastern time, because that is how Word Press rolls. 😀
