Twitter is a place where I learn what Jon Favreau thinks about trump because I follow some really smart people with extremely vapid tastes outside of their area of expertise.
The political speech writer or the fat actor?

TFW you didn't read the article.



So let's see what those pussy liberal jokes of experts had to say.
TFA wrote:John Bolton, former United Nations ambassador under George W. Bush, insisted in the New York Times that “defeating the Islamic State” is “neither feasible nor desirable” if Assad remains in power. Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham asserted that “defeating Islamic State also requires defeating Bashar Assad.” Kenneth Pollack of the Brookings Institution prescribed a policy of “building a new Syrian opposition army capable of defeating both President Bashar al-Assad and the more militant Islamists.” Similarly, Max Boot, a contributing writer to this newspaper, argued that vanquishing Islamic State was futile unless the U.S. also moved to depose the “Alawite regime in Damascus.” Like other regime-change salesmen, he pitched a no-fly zone across the country to facilitate airstrikes against the Assad government, while boosting aid to the so-called moderate rebels.

The politcal one worked with Obama early; Political Farverau first became famous due to a picture of him groping a cardboard cutout of Hillary Clinton sometime during the 2008 primaries.

I made Moon Pies from scratch once. It was an...'inefficient' effort. It took longer to bake them than they lasted. And cleanup was no small chore either. However the quality of home made Moon Pies was such that they utterly ruined the vending machine variety for me. For which I am grateful.
