If I may repeat that statement from President Trump, again: “We’ve got a list of wealthy people who made contributions to ISIS.” Well, well, well. Will you look at that? Folks, it takes a lot for me to be speechless. But this BOOM is one of those:

I am speechless but I will ask a question. Might the same wealthy people be among those who encouraged the Washington Post to show respect to Al-Baghdadi with the adoring reference of “Austere Religious Scholar?” Sometimes, the best answers are found within questions.

President Trump on Tuesday tangled with French President Emmanuel Macron in a tense exchange in front of reporters in London, where Trump asked Macron if he’d like to take back “some nice ISIS fighters” and then dinged him for his “non-answer” — just hours after he challenged the French president’s rebuke of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
“I have not spoken to the president about that — would you like some nice ISIS fighters?” he asked Macron when asked about ISIS fighters from Europe captured in Syria. “I can give them to you; you can take every one you want.”
After Macron’s answer, in which he urged Trump to “be serious” and called for a broader push against ISIS overall, Trump took another swipe.
“This is why he’s a great politician because that’s one of the greatest non-answers I’ve ever heard,” Trump joked.
Speaking of questions, I know one thing for sure, there is likely significant meaning behind the ISIS QUESTION that Trump asked Macron, or he’d not have asked it. It would have topped things off nicely if Hero military dog Conan had been sitting at Trump’s side during this conversation with Macron. That’s my opinion, and I’m sticking to it.
God Bless, The United States Of America, may the truth on ISIS soon prevail.
