Pro-Trump Congressman: It Doesn’t Make Sense That Assad Would Use Gas

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), one of President Donald Trump’s biggest supporters in Congress, took to Twitter on Wednesday to drop some logic regarding the situation in Syria.

As the establishment begins to bang the drums of war, Massie is having no part of it.

“Interview from one year ago – still applies. It doesn’t make sense that Assad would use gas, immediately after @realDonaldTrump announced we would pull troops out of Syria.  Assad knows a gas attack would provoke US military involvement against his government,” Massie tweeted with a video of an interview he did with CNN last year.

Massie also asserted that Trump does not have the constitutional authority to attack a sovereign country without approval of Congress if our country is not in imminent danger.

The congressman also retweeted a thread by Rep. Justin Amash and called it a “tactical strike on the neocon #fakenews that’s been rampant today on twitter.”


Massie also retweeted Tucker Carlson’s monologue questioning the narrative being used to sway public opinion to support a war.

“All the geniuses tell us that Assad killed those children. But do they really know that? Of course, they don’t really know that, they’re making it up. They have no real idea what happened. Actually, both sides in the Syrian Civil War possess chemical weapons. How would it benefit Assad, from using chlorine gas last weekend?” Carlson asked during his phenomenal takedown of the absurdity surrounding the official narrative.

The host argued that there are currently horrific things taking place all over the globe, yet when carried out by our allies we turn a blind eye.

“There is a devastating famine killing children in Yemen right now Saudis are causing that. Should we drop tomahawks on Riyadh in response? Not until it’s on YouTube apparently. When you conduct foreign policy by viral video, pictures are essential,” Carlson said mockingly.

Carlson and Massie’s sentiments are shared by most of Trump’s biggest supporters on social media.

“Before Trump was President, he posted tweets echoing similar sentiments as Massie and Amash. Trump called for a lawful declaration of war by Congress and largely warned against action in Syria,” the Liberty Conservative noted.
