Don Jr not about to let Joy Reid get away with calling U.S. Embassy attack in Iraq ‘Trump’s Benghazi’

Donald Trump Jr. and others pummeled radically left-wing MSNBC talking head Joy Reid on social media this New Year’s Day after she smugly tried to draw a link between the recent US embassy attack in Baghdad and the 2012 Benghazi terror.

On Tuesday afternoon, hours after Iranian-backed militiamen stormed the U.S. Embassy in Iraq’s capital of Baghdad, Reid posted a tweet describing the situation in Iraq as “Trump’s Benghazi.”


The tweet contained a retweet of a left-wing bot (ironically enough, given the left’s complaints about bots) that catalogs some of President Donald Trump’s tweets.

Throughout Tuesday morning, President Donald Trump posted numerous tweets pertaining to everything from the situation in Iraq to his complaints about the Democrats’ impeachment efforts against him.

In one of those tweets, for instance, he wrote, “Read the transcript!”

Keep in mind this tweet was mixed in with dozens of other tweets pertaining solely to the situation in Iraq:

The bottom line is the president wasn’t ignoring the situation. Yet Reid tried to imply otherwise in an attempt to accuse Trump of doing exactly what former President Barack Hussein Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had done when Islamic terrorists attacked a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, eight years earlier.

But as the president’s oldest son, Trump Jr., would later note in a set of rebuttal tweets posted throughout Wednesday, this narrative is complete bunk.


Trump Jr.’s father didn’t diddle and dawdle like Obama and Clinton. Nor he go back to bed.

He promptly deployed 100 U.S. Marines directly to the embassy and 750 U.S. Army paratroopers to the region. He also began prepping 4,000 soldiers from the Army’s 82nd Airborne Deployment-Ready Brigade for their own imminent deployment.

Nor did Trump try to blame the attack on the American people as Obama and Clinton had in 2012. Following the Benghazi attack, the pair spent days blaming it on a so-called “anti-Muslim” documentary produced by Nakoula Basseley Nakoula.

Instead the current president aimed the blame at the true culprit, Iran, as noted by Senate Judiciary Committee chair Lindsey Graham:

And so the idea that there’s even a scant equivalence between the now-resolved Baghdad situation and the Benghazi terror attack is just absurd.

But Reid doesn’t care, as evidenced by her stubborn decision to not delete her tweet. Nor do the media care. They’ve been busy falsely portraying the Iranian-backed militiamen as “mourners” and “protesters.”

It seems like nobody cares for the actual truth but the president, his immediate family and their growing army of fed-up supporters, including the following:
