Rep. Hunter votes against condemning Trump on Syria, saying 'You kick ass and you leave'

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Alpine, was among a small group in Congress who voted against a resolution Wednesday condemning the presidentís recent decision to withdraw troops from Syria.

In a rare case of bipartisan opposition to President Donald Trump, the U.S. House overwhelmingly approved the resolution. The vote was 354-to-60, with every Democrat and more than two-thirds of Republicans supporting the measure.

Two days after Trump announced his plan to withdraw U.S. troops from near the northeastern Syria-Turkey border, Turkish troops and Turkish-backed Syrian fighters launched an offensive against the Kurds, who have been allies in the U.S. effort to fight ISIS.

Hunter was one of 60 Republicans voting against the resolution and was one of two members of Californiaís 53-person delegation to take that position. The other was Rep. Tom McClintock, a Republican from Elk Grove, a Sacramento suburb.

Indicted for campaign funds to pay personal bills big and small, from luxury vacations to kids' school lunches and delinquent family dentistry bills. Dude, you're in enough hot water without making more waves.

6. LOL, except we weren't kicking ass the Kurds were, and we ran, not left.

Otherwise we wouldn't have had to bomb our own installations.
