The idea that these people feel any shame or remorse is why we find it hard to win

Number 4 from Five Tweets That Did Not Age Well In 2017.

4) Linda Sarsour and Jerusalem

Here we have the tweet that was dead on arrival. 

 is not the capital of Israel no matter how many times Trump says it. He doesn’t speak for me.

 

Oh, where to begin… maybe with a map and some history?

You see, Linda, the nation of Israel calls Jerusalem its capital. I know this is hard for a raging anti-Semite like yourself to understand, but Donald Trump did not make Jerusalem the capital of Israel. All he did was acknowledge that Israel says it is the capital, and decided to move our embassy there. And thanks to him and to Ambassador Nikki Haley, we have affirmed our friendship with the ONLY stable democracy in the Middle East.

Thank you, Ambassador Haley. On Hanukkah, you spoke like a Maccabi. You lit a candle of truth. You dispel the darkness. One defeated the many. Truth defeated lies. Thank you, President Trump. Thank you, Nikki Haley.

I hope that video gives Linda Sarsour heartburn.


And this was Number 5.

5) Ben Rhodes and lies

Oh, where to begin with Ben Rhodes, noted author of the Iran deal disaster and Obama apologist. Let’s look in the wayback machine for this one:

The President repeatedly lying is devastating to US credibility around world. If people can’t believe what US gov is saying how can we lead? https://twitter.com/potus/status/839099211266285568 

This is a tweet that Rhodes really should regret, but I’m fairly certain he possesses no capacity for shame or self-awareness.

In old enuf to remember when your old boss said Benghazi was caused by a YouTube video while at the UN.

I’m old enough to remember when Ben Rhodes bragged about lying to Congress and the Media about Obama’s Iran deal.

Do you like your doctor Ben?

Maybe, just maybe, the guy that wrote and pushed the Iran Deal would care to explain this?

For eight years, a top-secret DEA facility in Chantilly, Virginia, was the hub of a global investigation that used wiretaps, undercover operations and informants to map Hezbollah’s illicit networks of drug traffickers and other criminal enterprises. http://politico.com/project-cassandra  pic.twitter.com/9fl7ll5LZs

Nope.

There is boundless irony and hypocrisy in how much people who love to sneer at “echo chambers” live entirely inside a perpetual right wing echo chamber of non-fact based anti Iran Deal propaganda. https://twitter.com/joshmeyerdc/status/943245806450114560 

He just called Politico “right-wing.” I don’t think he’s familiar with the national media if that’s the angle he wants to play.

Ben, you’re in an unique position to refute parts of the story you find incorrect. Perhaps do that approach instead of this. It’s more befitting of the office of which you served and a debate would do well to inform the public conversation.

He can’t do it because the report’s true.

Maybe Rhodes should sit down and shut up until he can explain himself.
