While everyone is so focused on Donald Trump’s distraction away from the Russia investigation, North Korea and nuclear war, there’s another war Trump is pretty willing to get us involved with and send children that are not his own to fight in.
What’s this other war? Venezuela.
Trump has now said that he’s willing to keep all options on the table in regards to Venezuela. He said:
“We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option if necessary.”
Wow. He really loves war, doesn’t he? Shocking considering he’s a five-time draft-dodger.
He also called Venezuela our neighbor. However, checking a map, here is where Venezuela is:
As you can see, while yes, the United States is not too terribly far from Venezuela, they most certainly are not our neighbor. Someone should get Trump an atlas for Christmas this year.
Here’s Trump starting a new drumbeat of war in case you were getting tired of hearing about North Korea:

Comforting, right? That we have a *president so willing to go to war and potentially start WWIII. A man with zero military, foreign policy or diplomatic experience.
All the while, don’t forget, the Russia investigation is still very much alive and kicking.
