Rep. Justin Amash blasts Trump's mercenary Saudi force: 'He sells troops'
Rep. Justin Amash — the former Republican who, by dint of the gram of integrity he has, was compelled to leave the party in July — has called out Donald Trump over, well, this egregious shite pile of a policy:
He sells troops. “We have a very good relationship with Saudi Arabia—I said, listen, you’re a very rich country. Y… https://t.co/vKydfOlslv— Justin Amash (@Justin Amash)1578764936.0
That he does.
And should this really surprise us? After all, he promises foreign military aid in exchange for election interference.
Amash apparently couldn’t handle the cognitive dissonance that goes with being a member of a party whose putative leader is 300 pounds of corruption, fast-food phlegm, and bad ideas, so when he came out for impeachment last year he was immediately hounded by Trump and his flying monkeys.
He soon regressed into a tea party larval state and is now an independent.
But, hey, at least he can tell the truth about Trump. That’s more than most of these servile devils can do.
And there were responses. Oh, yes:

So there you have it. Donald Trump has turned our military into a mercenary force, and only one (former) Republican is willing to trash him for it.
Question: Will Saudi Arabia pay extra for war crimes, or is Trump throwing those in for free just because he gets such a kick out of them?
