DONALD TRUMP SAYS IRAQ WAR WAS AN ACCIDENT

imageLAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles®) – Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry characterized the recent shooting in Charleston as an “accident” during an interview on Friday, accusing President Obama of using the massacre, which claimed nine lives, as a pretext for pushing a gun control agenda.

“This is the MO of this administration anytime there is an accident like this,” Perry said during an appearance on Newsmax TV. The former Texas governor said the president “doesn’t like guns,” so “he uses every opportunity” to tighten restrictions on gun ownership.

Another Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, described the U.S. involvement in the Iraq war as an accident, saying that former President George W. Bush and his Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld accidentally believed that Saddam Hussein was concealing weapons of mass destruction.

It seems that Republicans have found the perfect excuse for everything that’s wrong with America and it’s a recurring theme that we will see throughout the presidential campaign season between now and the 2016 elections.

Senator Rand Paul is reportedly preparing a major speech this weekend in which he will describe the election of Barack Obama as an accident — twice over.

SILICON VALLEY, California (The Adobo Chronicles®Every day and every hour, we at The Adobo Chronicles® wave our magic wand to scan the world of news in the hope of shining the spotlight on things that are obvious, or not so obvious.

Then, our writers get right to work, putting their best spin — sometimes ridiculous, oftentimes funny, and occasionally offensive — in order to make sense (or not) of the topic at hand.

Next, we decide on the punchline for our news delivery.

It was business as usual yesterday. The top news was, of course, the shooting of nine people in a predominantly black church congregation in South Carolina allegedly by a 21-year-old white man.

It didn’t take long for our newsroom staff to decide on our punchline, which is …

NONE.

This is as crystal clear as black and white.

Our thoughts and prayers to the victims and families of this racist attack.
