Obama Finally Gets Around To Telling Congress We're At War With Libya

News

He'll text you if anything gets annexed, kthanks, bye.President Obama has been traveling around South America or wherever the past few days, taking in some sun and minor diplomacy while he sits on the beach and plays around with whatever video game controller the military provides him to go bomb places. Yesterday afternoon, he decided he would let Congress know that the United States had been engaged in a war with a country in Africa for days, in case they were wondering. Wait, isn't Congress supposed to be the ones to declare war? Well, they haven't really had to do that since Harry Truman decided he wanted to go bomb Korea and nobody arrested him for it.


Col. Obama:

"The United States has not deployed ground forces into Libya. United States forces are conducting a limited and well-defined mission in support of international efforts to protect civilians and prevent a humanitarian disaster. [...]

For these purposes, I have directed these actions, which are in the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States, pursuant to my constitutional authority to conduct U.S. foreign relations and as Commander in Chief and Chief Executive."

Or, "I can bomb shit whenever I want to, but I thought you might like to know, because it's pretty cool."

The tribes that compose these rebel groups are going to be completely independent from U.S. aid and very democratic and will be our best friends forever. The end. No need to check up on this latter, Congress. Everything's going to be just fine. [ABC News]

Donald Trump held one of his televised cabinet meetings today in which he railed about the terrible Democrats who forced the current border crisis (at a time when illegal border crossings are actually lower than usual). In what's sure to be his favorite phrase on Twitter for the next few days, Trump blamed "extremist open-border Democrats" for all the problems he brought on himself with his family separation policy, and explained that Democrats were simultaneously hurting illegal immigrants AND the rest of America by forcing Normal America to accept Central Americans who fled to the US. It made loads of sense! And then things got ... less so.
