This clip slipped through the cracks I think, and it should get more attention because it’s really rather troubling.
When asked about the foreign policy experts who signed a letter castigating Trump for advocating for what amounts to international war crimes.
“They won’t refuse. They’re not gonna refuse me. BELIEVE ME.”
Then he rambles on about “Medieval Times” and Muslims chopping off heads. Which is a great way to not answer the question.
So how exactly would he force military members to commit war crimes?
“If I say do it, they’re gonna do it.”
This is the kind of ridiculous and dangerous rhetoric that appeals to the gut but should put the mind in doubt about his sanity. This is literally putting military members in jeopardy of significant legal peril. And they already learned what happens when one idiot, Obama, is willing to prosecute them for orders given by a president, George W. Bush, who believed it was legal to do so. Do you really think they’re gonna follow through on orders that President Drumpf KNOWS are illegal?
