President Trump is, to put it mildly, a shit-spouting arsehole with the tactical acumen of a colostomy bag. But according to one commentator:

Look, we know US intervention is wrong; we also know Trump is wrong. But what do they say about two wrongs? That’s correct – they make a right.

Someone pointed out the saying is actually ‘two wrongs don’t make a right’. The commentator replied:

Fuck it – let’s do this shit anyway. Woo! Freedom or else, mother fuckers!

Progress

Thankfully, less sources than usual seem to be optimistic about the idea of another US intervention. Parts of the liberal media in particular seem to have wised up to the idea that you can’t fight fire with petrol.

So well done them for catching up. We should really talk about capitalism and James Corden next, because they’re not working either.
