The call it “Wag the dog” when a politician creates a deflection from them to save themselves. In our present situation, President Donald Trump has put us at the brink of World War III with Iran and Iraq just when his impeachment was back on track. He couldn’t have started a fight with anyone worse than these guys – oh wait, there’s that Korean guy. Now, he’s got everyone – including me – scared. It’s got our mind off impeachment because now there is a worse enemy than Trump. One that will blow us away or nuke us – if they can. It’s got people like me more concerned about Iran and Iraq than Trump’s impeachment. So, did it work? So far it has, if someone is taking a poll. Then his plan has worked.
I sometime tell people who are in alot of trouble, throw something out there even bigger than their trouble. It always works.
