Tommy Vietor once was the National Security Council spokesman under President Obama, but he should always, always be remembered as the guy whose thoughtful 2014 take on the deadly Benghazi attack that killed four Americans was, “Dude … that was two years ago.”
How many years ago did President Obama draw that red line in Syria? Dude, who ever remembers that?
100 babies are born in Aleppo each week. When you talk about a refugee ban, imagine telling those moms and kids they're not welcome.

Moms and kids? Dude, the official line straight from the boss was, widows and orphans. It wasn’t that many years ago.
@TVietor08 Oh, concerned about them now, are you?

Hang on, now: we remember reading somewhere that climate change was the root cause of the Syrian conflict.

@RichardGrenell Why can't Saudi Arabia or another country help refugees? We've already done a lot surely we can take a pass now & then.
