3. I'm sure Trump offered Erdogan the "Dictator's Club Special" when he booked his rooms in DC.



I haven't looked lately, but I think that package comes with 5 free protester beatings along with access to backchannel intelligence and a heap of military hardware.

30. But I thought Trump was so tough the world would respect us again?! This is a fucking outrage

Frankly this outrageous stunt by that dictator Erdogan shows very clearly that they (Erdogan and his goons) have ZERO respect for/fear of Trump. They know he's a toothless Russian stooge, and they know Putin has him by the balls. The image of that bodyguard, tough man, choking that young woman should be everywhere. This is Trump's new "winning" America.

41. They already have, and are eager for more.

In addition to all the "helpful" Trump supporters at his rally, there are things like this:


Pro-Trump rioters got away with beating anti-fascists in Berkeley — and likely won’t stop there
The Berkeley street violence was a great marketing event for alt-right types eager to attack anti-Trump protesters

Oh never mind, it's because Trump thinks beating up protesters is cool.

17. If they were part of Erdogan's entourage, then yes, they have diplomatic immunity...

...and most likely are already out of the Country. How alarming that a up-and-coming dictator thinks he could bring his goon squad to America, and worse, assault American citizens with seemingly no consequences.

https://theintercept.com/2017/05/17/trump-praises-erdogan-whose-bodyguards-assault-protesters-washington/

Casting aside his predecessor’s concerns about human rights abuses and the suppression of free speech in another nation, Donald Trump lavished praise on another autocratic foreign leader on Tuesday, calling it “a great honor to welcome the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, to the White House.”

Just hours after Trump focused his remarks on “the exemplary valor of the Turkish soldier,” however, Erdogan’s presidential bodyguards were caught on video punching and kicking protesters outside the Turkish ambassador’s residence in Washington.

34. he doesn't just *think* that; it is demonstrably true

Our CIC, Fuckface von Clownstick, probably jacked off to the video. This is how he wants all protesters to be treated, if not simply gunned down.

I don't have the stomach to check out any of our political opponents' message boards and such, but I wouldn't be surprised if those people are gleefully celebrating this and taking it as an example of what's perfectly OK to do to anyone who would dare try to stand up to authority (well their authority, anyway...)

25. I had trouble sleeping last night thinking about this.

Not a peep (or a Tweet) out of the White House about this, just whining about how badly shitgibbon is being treated. I finally ended up writing my own episode of 'The West Wing' in my head.

After the episode at the Turkish Embassy, Bartlett summons the Turkish Ambassador to the Oval Office and firstly proceeds to rip him a new one. Then declares the entire contingent of Erdogan's bodyguards as persona non grata and tells the Ambassador they are to be out of the country in within 24 hours. Then, just for good measure, expels about 20 other Turks working in the Embassy and tells the Ambassador that he should consider going back to Turkey for a couple of months for 'consultation with his government'. Then Bartlett tells the Ambassador 'you can go now' and, studiously ignoring the Ambassador, goes back to reading papers on his desk.

Later he makes an address to the nation from the Oval Office, telling the world what he has done and telling the American people that 'this country will not stand for this type of behavior from any country, friend or foe'.

Unfortunately, at that point, my brain was interrupted with a Tweetstorm from 45 applauding Erdogan and saying the protesters are the ones who should be locked up.

and has admitted that he has a conflict of interest as a result.

Those men are clearly psychopaths used as attack dogs. Screw 'diplomatic immunity'; it's a pleasant concept that has no bearing on this situation. If a diplomat attempts murder -- there must be justice.
