Trump resurrects tall tale about General Pershing and Muslims after Barcelona terror attack

Caitlin Yilek
Washington Examiner
August 17, 2017

Quote:
President Trump resurrected what historians believe is an urban legend about Gen. John Pershing executing dozens of Muslim prisoners with bullets dipped in pigs' blood, telling people to read up on the history after a terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, left more than a dozen people dead Thursday.

"Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught. There was no more Radical Islamic Terror for 35 years!" Trump tweeted after he condemned the attack and told Spain to be "tough and strong."

This is another example of the narcissist telling stories which in his mind elevate him. The appeal to Gen Pershing as an iron fisted dictatorial general without moral bounds makes him a perfect idol for Mr Trump to emulate and believe himself to be.

Those who don't learn history are bound to repeat lies about it.

Trump doesn't have any thoughts longer than 144 characters - which is 144 more characters than he has.

I just wanted everybody to twitter the Donald and encourage him to keep it up! He is right on the edge of removal and it will only take a few more sillies to get rid of the jerk. I know, we can count on him to be the jackass but now is the time!!!!!!!
