The lack of empathy here is truly disturbing. Why didn’t he get up? Why did he not turn to completely face her to listen to the horrors she has lived through or attempt to internalize why she is begging for help?

I think he may have just knocked the question out of the lineup forevermore?

Prominent supporter: "We are now exceptional in bad ways: We are exceptionally overweight, we are exceptionally addicted to opioids, it is exceptionally expensive to build infrastructure here, we are exceptionally un-self-aware... exceptionally un-self-critical."

Good luck pitching an exploding car bomb and claiming that you really are winning the war.

A day later, I’m still haunted by this encounter. I’m beyond awestruck by Nadia Murad’s courage: a survivor advocating for her Yazidi people to an accused predator lacking empathy and basic tact.

What's happening this week with Iran is the exact opposite of odd. This is precisely how Iran negotiates: the unctuous charm of Zarif paired with a punch in the face from the IRGC. They are two sides of the same coin, complementary & coordinated.

In 2016, Candidate Trump said on the US military should take all the oil in Northern Iraq. When told a general (me) said that would be a war crime, for the first time he says he “knows more than the generals.” Sinjar is in N Iraq. Potus says he “knows it well.”

“Lock her up” and “send her back” have a single word in common and it’s no coincidence.

I’m so shaken by this video. Please watch and listen to Nadia Murad’s message with the attention and compassion she deserves from the American people, all the more so when our President is incapable of it.

SCOOP: For years, Bernie Sanders has traveled the country advocating for a $15 per hour minimum wage. His campaign organizers say they aren’t making that much, and they're using his words to protest for higher wages. Via

Christ Almighty. Did anyone even try to brief Trump? I know he’s beyond incurious, but he knew nothing about *NADIA MURAD* except that she was a Nobel recipient. If this is how he treats a victim of unimaginable horrors, those who set them up should be ashamed, too.

Unreal: -Nadia Murad: “They [ISIS] Killed my mom, my six brothers” -Donald Trump: “Where are they now?” -Murad: “They Killed them..they are in the mass graves in Sinjar” [Trump nods...]

All the wonks who swore that Tehran would never negotiate with the Trump admin, please be aware that they're doing so in plain sight. It may not be as sexy as an Oman backchannel, but dangled offers over past few months serve the same purpose: testing US readiness & intentions.

Veteran Dem , the low-key chair of the Aviation subcommittee, says this week was his tipping point: he's for impeachment Trump's "comments do not protect the concept of U.S. citizenship. They undermine it. He should not be the President of the United States.”
