The Morning Joe crew mocked President Donald Trump’s repeated claims that Qasem Soleimani was preparing to attack U.S. embassies as “completely made up for a gullible public.”
Trump rolled out the claim that Soleimani had planned to “blow up our embassy” in Baghdad during an impromptu press conference Thursday, then expanded the claim to an adoring rally crowd in Toledo, Ohio that night.
“Soleimani was planning new attacks, and he was looking very seriously at our embassies, and not just our embassy in Baghdad,” Trump said.
On Friday morning’s edition of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, co-host Willie Geist cycled through the ever-evolving rationales given for the killing of Soleimani, and got to Trump’s “stunning claim” at the rally that there were threats against U.S. embassies, and pointed out that neither Vice President Mike Pence nor the administration’s briefers — according to every member of Congress who has been asked — ever mentioned such a threat.
“Yeah, If I didn’t know better, I’d say the president was just making it up,” panelist Eugene Robinson joked, then added “Hold it, I don’t know better than that. He is just making it up.
