Trump is basically in suicide by cop mode, impeachment wise.

With people rightly comparing Trump’s current Twitter tirade to the Wizard in the Wizard of Oz. Let us not forgot one of the best quotes from the scarecrow in the Oz:

Turkey is killing Kurds. Right now. Our allies in the fight against ISIS are dying. Because Trump – the unethical, stupid, delusional, megalomaniac – decided without input it was a neat idea to leave them at Turkey's mercy.
The peace zone is gone. Here come Iran and Russia.

Trump’s betrayal of the Kurds isn’t just immoral—there’s no strategic reason for it. https://t.co/WG7KWLD4zU

Trump doesn't seem bothered by the prospect of the Kurds and Turkey going to war with each other because they "are natural enemies." pic.twitter.com/LKq4up1qBL

JUST NOW: I asked a Senior Administration Official if @realDonaldTrump asked for any favors or was promised anything in exchange for moving US troops to give Turkey room & a free hand to attack our allies. The official dodged the question by denying that Trump was asked to do so.

And this is why Putin and company have zero fucks to give about where Trump goes from here. They will remain, regardless, in the no-doubt gleeful win-position they’ve been in since he was elected. https://t.co/nu48mzXmvq

As anonymised text messages from Downing St officials go, this one to @JGForsyth may be the world champ. It is so indiscreet on Johnson’s plans that it must be seen as massive mind games with the anti-no-deal caucus of MPs, Dublin and Berlin… https://t.co/fQP3poANmM

Final thought on Downing St briefing to @spectator – the source seems to be saying they can frustrate the Benn Act and leave on 31 October but also that EU countries will be sorry if they don't let the UK leave. If Downing St was sure it could leave, why the threats?
