People Are Calling Trump Out for Hypocrisy After He Arrived at His Golf Club as Protesters Storm the Baghdad Embassy

Protesters stormed the United States embassy in Iraq on Tuesday morning in response to a U.S. airstrike that killed 24 fighters in an Iranian-backed militia.

Though none of the protesters or the fires they started infiltrated the main embassy buildings, they did penetrate the outer level of security before Iraqi security forces could secure the facility. Protesters have vowed to camp outside the embassy indefinitely.

As the situation at the embassy remains urgent, President Donald Trump is spending a twelfth consecutive day at his Mar-a-Lago resort, which he refers to as "the Southern White House."

The uprising was reminiscent of the 2012 Benghazi attack, in which militants attacked U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya.

Republicans continue to condemn what they perceived as negligence or even a cover-up from then-President Barack Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Among their biggest critics? Donald Trump.

If anyone had forgotten Benghazi, Trump's hypocrisy on the matter reminded them of it.

Nor did they forget Republicans' obsession with Benghazi back when Obama was President and Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.

So much so that Benghazi was trending on Twitter calling them out.

I'm sure Republicans are just about to call Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to testify about the infiltration of the U.S. embassy in Iraq any minute now...

Nikki Haley's Blunt 'Election' Prediction Comes Back To Haunt Trump After Biden Drops Out

Earlier this year, South Carolina Republican Governor Nikki Haley made a blunt prediction about which political party would win this year's election, a statement that has garnered more attention since President Joe Biden dropped out of the 2024 race and endorsed Vice President Kamala Harris.

At 81, Biden faced increasing concerns within his party about his age and capacity to serve another term, along with fears of a potential loss to former President Donald Trump—who is 78—in November. In his announcement, Biden backed Harris as the Democratic nominee to replace him, calling it "the best decision I’ve made."
