Mr. President:

President George H.W. Bush already betrayed our Kurdish allies in Iraq back after the first Gulf War.

Are we really seriously thinking of doing this again? And for what? To cozy up to another despot, i.e., Turkey’s President Erdoğan? What can possibly be gained from doing so?

Does it ever occur to you that you won’t be president forever and that someday you’ll have to answer for the stupid things you do?

And, by the way, whatever happened to your promise to be a president for all Americans? I guess it was just words on a page that someone else wrote and that you just read out loud, and that you never intended to follow through with any such thing.

You’re a despicable person and a pathetic excuse for a human being.
