Dan Rather: Trump's missile barrage in Syria a convenient distraction from Russia


Quote:
"I want to make very clear, these actions by President Trump may or may not have been necessary," Rather said. "They may or may not have had any other motivation. One effect that they had, intended or not, was to change the conversation."
Quote:
"The conversation was all about what did Donald Trump know and when did he know it about Russia influence on the election," Rather noted. "The second the missiles were launched on Syria, the narrative changed to his advantage."
Quote:
He then added: "Now I don't think that was his intention but it was an effect of it."

Every butt hurt left winger who thought Hillary had it in the bag, might think that...

Dan Rather is a proven liar as well, and he is a liberal idiot as well. I suggest you find another source for your news.

Time to get over the hysterics of the traumatic defeat, cause you did not just loose the White House, but at all levels of Government, State, local, and Federal. Don't you get the message America has sent to you??

Regards, Kirk

Lets see, the so-called conversation was diehard never Trumper smears claiming Trump was a patsy for Russia. Of course no evidence was presented just calls for a partisan witch hunt "investigation."

Like the good tin foil hat wearing conspiracists they are never Trumpers in vent a new framework of lies to explain why Trump would anger the Russians by bombing their Syrian client state. It couldn't be that their conspiracy theory is wrong, it must be some crassly motivated attempt at distraction by Trump.

From the C-In-C who knows more than all his generals -

59 Tomahawk cruise missiles and Syrian jets were using that same airport the very next day.

We have a "State News Agency?" really. With ABC, NBC, CNN, CNBC, FOX etc etc...; Are you kidding?

And some of us have more than two brain cells, and we think differently than you would suggest.

Syria is hardly a distraction from Russia. They are connected at the hip. Bombing a surrogate of Putin seems more like something that would place attention on our relations with his nation. As well as putting a sharp point on our relations with Syria.

At first, the FAKE news is that Trump is in League with Putin. Now the FAKE news is we may go to war with Russia. The FBI is still looking into the first and finding no evidence for over a year. And many of us are laughing at your second alternate concept.

Has it become so pettifogged, clouded and partisan that the never Trumper's cannot keep their two brain cells aligned on the same side of the argument?

Yes or no, were the Syrians launching chemical weapons strikes from that airfield the day after the strike? The answer is no but since it is Trump the haters have to invent a new objective to cry about.

It is either Trump shouldn't have authorized the strike at all or he should have destroyed the airbase, it can't be both. Oh wait, it can be if the objective is to blindly attack Trump with no regard to logic or consistency.

Any opinion by Dan Rather is null and void.

Poor Dan, he must think others care what he thinks. Obviously he doesn't know what he thinks, since he said it May, or May not, have been a diversion.

Poor Dan is right. Me thinks any opinion from him are themselves a distraction.

He is trying to do to Trump what he attempted to do to GW Bush 43. With the same credibility,,,; and results.
