Wag the dog. He needs a big distraction.

I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.

Some of the responses:
what a great idea it was to put a racist game show host in charge of keeping us safe
How do you shoot down a boat?
We have enough to worry about at home without Trump’s inept leadership provoking a war, too.
Trump is giving the order to shoot down boats.
I didn’t realize Iran had flying boats now.
You’re going to kill all of us.
We were warned.
How about those test kits, Donald?
“Shoot down” gun boats, Cadet Bone Spurs?
The immigration distraction didn’t work, so you’re going with the threat of war again?
I hope reporters don’t fall for it during today’s ‘briefing’.
“Anyone can make war, but only the most courageous have bone spurs and get spanked by Porn stars” – President Donald J Trump
You’re nothing but a miserable, angry, ignorant, unqualified, incompetent, insecure, self-loathing, irresponsible, reckless, dangerous SOCIOPATH… #Trump #Iran
Maybe the Space Force could keep an eye out as well. Just in case any of those flying boats make it into orbit.
You’re actually threatening war during a pandemic?
Do gun boats fly?
Weird, I thought the Navy fires captains who try protect their ship’s crew?
We see what you did there.
WAG THE DOG: (phrase) An obvious attempt to distract attention away from one’s own domestic failures; often by threatening unnecessary military action.
I can’t wait for Trump to start awarding himself medals.
Or Rank. “His Excellency Field Marshall Doctor General…”
Alexa – Show me a distraction.
The mind of a Narcissist: “My ratings should have gone through the roof in this Corona Crisis. That didn’t work out well. Let´s try a war.”
“Well, this makes me feel better about everything,” said no one ever.
There you go.
