Pete Buttigieg suggests Trump to blame for Iranians shooting down Ukrainian airliner

Pete Buttigieg suggests Trump to blame for Iranians shooting down Ukrainian airliner

“Innocent civilians are now dead because they were caught in the middle of an unnecessary and unwanted military tit for tat” — no, the plane was shot down by the Iranians at Tehran airport on the night the Iranians were firing ballistic missiles at U.S. troops, we were not firing at them.

You just knew that in an era of pathological Trump Derangement Syndrome, Democrats would blame Trump for Iran shooting down a Ukrainian airliner at Tehran airport on the night Iran fired ballistic missiles at bases in Iraq housing U.S. troops. Iran fired the missile, there were no U.S. planes in action over Tehran and we were not firing at them, but somehow Trump would be blamed.

Laurence Tribe, the TDS-infused Harvard Law School professor, is going there:

Trump’s “flying in a tough neighborhood” & “it has nothing to do with us” were typical “who, me?” moves. Did it never occur to him that the plane filled with 176 souls would almost certainly never have been targeted by a trigger-happy Iranian missile but for the assassination?

As crazed at Tribe has become, he sets the tone for #TheResistance.

So it’s no surprise that an hour after Tribe’s tweet, a major Democrat presidential candidate, Pete Buttigieg, suggested the same:

Innocent civilians are now dead because they were caught in the middle of an unnecessary and unwanted military tit for tat. My thoughts are with the families and loved ones of all 176 souls lost aboard this flight.

Remember, there was no U.S. military action over Iran at this time. This was the night Iran launched ballistic missiles at us. We were not firing at them. Our drone attack on Soleimani took place several days earlier in Iraq, not even in Iran.

It’s insane, but expected at this point to blame Trump for what the Iranians did in Tehran.

Expect the Tribe-Buttigieg talking point blaiming Trump for Iran shooting down an airliner to become a key Democrat talking point. That’s how it works, the signal goes out and everyone falls in line, including CNN and MSNBC.

The responses are suitably indignant:


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


well we know that Trump is absolutely responsible for this man’s injuries:

Everyone is tired of Mayor Peter Paul of South Bend IN,
and his FAKE POLL Numbers.

Stuff the Iranian Missiles Peter Paul,
along with your Chicago’s sewer outlet city,
and the Chicago Obama Mafia!

Well, we see what a putz Butthead would be as a leader.

At best, he should govern the city of West Hollywood. But even that, he’d probably be as weak of a leader as he was in that other small town he was mayor of.

Mayor Pete forgets that gays get free flights all the time in Iran. The takeoff is first class but the landings are one point and a little rough although no flyer has lodged a complaint afterward.

I often wonder how Hah-vahd Law could have been so irresponsible to hire their first “woman of color” …. then I realize it was all headed by that Tribe idiot, and at that point it actually makes sense.

Mayor Petey Butt-on-edge forgot something else for which to blame President Trump —

The earthquakes in Iran.

Surly POTUS is somehow responsible for that, too. Right?

And halitosis, bad breath, B.O. and cow flatulence.

Not to mention Dem oral flatulence….for that there IS a provable cause-and-effect linkage.

It’s funny — I don’t recall that the Dhimmi-crats’ precious outrage and opprobrium was ever directed at the sainted dunce, Obama, in the aftermath of hundreds of thousands of innocents having been tortured, raped and murdered in barbarous ways by ISIS, and, let it be pointed out that this narcissistic fool and his foreign policy lackeys (i.e., Clinton, Rhodes, Rice and Powers) were directly responsible for creating the power vacuum in Libya and Egypt that led to those sadistic, goose-stepping, Muslim jackboots ascending to prominence and power.

    You also didn’t see “the Dhimmi-crats’ precious outrage and opprobrium was ever directed at the sainted dunce, Obama, in the aftermath” of even a U.S. Ambassador to Libya being raped and murdered while His Admin just Watched it and then Lied all about it…..

It’s like blaming American League pitchers for the Detroit Tigers having lousy hitters.

The plane was downed because of decisions solely made by Iran.

Using his logic, the closing of the Studebaker plant is his fault. He’s mayor, after all!

I dropped a big jar of mayonnaise on the kitchen floor today and broke it.

It’s Trump’s fault.

    Joe-dallas in reply to tiger66. | January 9, 2020 at 6:47 pm

    Must be pretty old since mayonnaise now comes in plastic jars.

    kidding aside – everything is a republicans fault and democrats never make a bad political decision that costs lives.

    Just like “neville Obama chamberlin ” brought peace to iran and stop their nuclear program.

Shorter Buttigieg: “Look what you made Daddy do. You know he doesn’t like it when you talk to him like that.”

This attack was initially leveled by the NYT. So Buttigieg is not only fool, but an unoriginal one at that.

So a Monarch butterfly flapping its wings in the Amazon Rain Forest created a typhoon in Indonesia that killed 24 people last week.

Yes, two different countries! The terrorist was taken down in Iraq. the Iranians shot at US air bases in Iraq. The Ukrainian airliner was shot down in IRAN.

Blame obuma for giving the Iranians the money to buy the missle

Next thing you know they’ll be blaming Trump for the original 1979 Tehran hostage crisis. “The Iranians really didn’t want to commit an act of war and invade sovereign US territory and take over our embassy but c’mon, man. They were confronting a nation so evil it hadn’t executed #OrangeManBad despite having over 3 decades to get around to it.”

In other news it is now not only fair but obligatory to blame “Mayor Pete” personally for the fact one of his white South Bend cops shot a black man last June. Raaaavist!


Racist. Damned Galaxy S9 with the tiny on-screen keyboard. It’s all South Bend, IN, Klan leader “Mayor Pete’s” fault.

I mean, why the hell not?

So Buttigieg is now claiming that the Iranian military is enforcing the US no-fly zone. Wow.

Given the Democrat Party’s enthusiastic embrace of antisemitism, the next nugget of wisdom from Mayor Sodomy will probably be that the Jews committed mass suicide in the Holocaust to give the poor little ol’ Germany a bad rap.

When Syrians shot down Russian jet with Russian missile, Russians blamed Israel. Buttigieg clearly colluded with Russians in his attempt to find the most bizarre scapegoat!

Just another terrorist sympathizer Dem/Prog candidate.

By the way, anyone think a Presidential Seal would look good on flannel footie pajamas?

Up here in Canada it is an absolute article of faith in the MSM that Trump is to blame for this, as well as everything else that has ever happened, including traffic jams and twisted ankles. The fact that the guy they “assassinated” was a mass-murdering terrorist is rarely mentioned, and if it is, it is accompanied by “according to the Trump administration”. It’s a funny old world.

Alfred E Newman suggests he’s qualified to be President. Comments like this put that in doubt.

I keep saying this: NO, I repeat NO, person with a name that can be laughed in without even misspelling it will ever be President of the United States.

It’s just not going to happen. Even Liberals are a bit shy of voting for him because of his name.

We will not abide a President who has BUTT as part of his name. Look back at all the actual presidents and you will see that none of them have names that can be easily made a dirty joke of. The closest is probably the Bushes.

Change my mind.

This little wanker needs to stick to packing fudge and STFU.
