President Trump made an odd statement this week in defense of his decision to pull American support from allied Kurdish fighters in northern Syria, leaving them vulnerable to a Turkish offensive.

While it may be true that there were no Kurds at the invasion of Normandy. Did the President's statement make any sense to you? Then, Congressman Joe Kennedy comes by.

Which Warren do you believe: presidential candidate Warren or 2007 Warren?

Now that they are moving forward with an impeachment committee, the democrats are locked into a scenario that could spell disaster. If they fail to take a vote on articles of impeachment, or fail to get enough votes among the majority to pass any articles, President Trump might be seen as exonerated which could lead to his re-election. If House Dems do manage to impeach the President on grounds that the public sees as flimsy or concocted, that could still lead to his re-election. Did the Democrats just guarantee a Trump second term by going after an impeachment?
