“Fucking Insane”: Conservative Journalists Criticize Trump’s Praise Of Saddam Hussein

Blog ››› ››› MATT GERTZ

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said during a July 5 speech that while former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was a “really bad guy,” he was “so good” at killing terrorists, in part because his regime “didn’t read them their rights.”

Several conservative journalists promptly criticized Trump, with Commentary’s John Podhoretz calling him “fucking insane” and pointing out that Hussein’s Iraq was actually a state sponsor of terrorism.

Trump’s general ignorance of foreign policy and world events has been noted by pundits across the political spectrum.
