IN THE LATEST INSTALLMENT OF CELEBRITIES SAY THE DUMBEST THINGS, COMEDIAN AND PROUD BED WETTER SARAH SILVERMAN HAS ADVISED THE U.S. MILITARY TO STAGE A COUP AGAINST DONALD TRUMP.
REACHED FOR COMMENT, SARAH STATED, "I JUST FELT LIKE ELLEN WAS SUCKING UP ALL THE CRAZY IN THE ROOM. AND IT REALLY BOTHERED ME. BECAUSE I ALWAYS THOUGHT PEOPLE FOUND ME CRAZY BUT THEY WERE LOOKING AT ELLEN AND NOT ME!"
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
When Andrea Mitchell started wearing her 'summer dresses' on air on MSNBC I groaned -- they make clear that she is 70 years old -- no matter how 'freshened' up her face has been. Who knew she was stupid enough to choose a professional photo wearing one?
Someone please tell White House Australia has more troops fighting ISIS in Iraq than any other ally + has fought at our side since WW2
Tacky clothes, tacky thoughts.
Andrea's got her Depends in a wad over the fact that President Donald Trump wants to examine a deal former President Barack Obama made to take refugees Australia had basically kept in pens and camps.
Andrea ignores that reality. She ignores the struggle of the refugees who sailed to Australia. She ignores everything because, damn it, she hates Donald Trump.
Does Australia have more troops fighting ISIS in Iraq than any other ally?
According to US media, there are supposedly no foreign troops in Iraq fighting ISIS.
"Train and advise."
Isn't it time she be shown the door before she embarrasses herself further.
I'm just quoting her one line from her appearance on 30 ROCK -- how professional -- how news like.
Forever in ever in syndication, she's the catty cow who hissed "slut!" at another woman (Tina Fey's Liz) who was single, an adult and had sex.
Long after she's dead, that's all she'll be remembered for.
Does Australia have the most troops in Iraq after the US?
That's probably not true.
They have "about 780" troops in Iraq.
That's per their own Defence Dept.
As for the UK?
It's a bit more complicated.
The official number has been 500 for some time.
In March, THE DAILY MIRROR reported:
Dozens more British troops are being sent to Iraq to help a massive push to drive out Islamic State, boosting the UK’s force in the region to more than 1,000.
It is the most UK military personnel fighting ISIS in the Middle East since our withdrawal from Iraq nearly seven years ago and signals an escalation in the fight against terror in Iraq.
In addition as many as 200 British special forces troops, including the SAS, Special Boat Service and Special Reconnaissamce Regiment, are actually fighting ISIS on the ground in Iraq and neighboring Syria.
this would appear to indicate that the Iraq number was higher than 500. In addition, BBC NEWS reported in June that 300 more were being sent to Iraq.
And, of course, early last month, the British Army website posted on their Iraq operations page: "Following additional deployments, in the next few months we will have up to 1,350 UK personnel supporting Counter-[Islamic State] operations."
They have been moving towards that number and have already passed Australia's troop numbers.
I have no idea why that matters to Andrea.
If we want to play a numbers game, Australia, under John Howard, had 500 troops in Iraq while the UK and US had thousands.
The war was and is illegal.
Not really sure why Andrea's so eager to push deployments but if she is she should get her numbers right.
