Congress Claims Situation In Syria Is Bad But Not Bad Enough For Them To Actually Declare War
Politics · Oct 17, 2019 ·

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congress slammed President Trump for not doing more about the situation in Syria. They said the situation over there is really bad but quickly clarified that it wasn't bad enough for them to use their constitutional powers to declare war.

The House condemned Trump's withdrawal from Syria, lamenting the fact that there was nothing they could do under the Constitution to send more troops over, like declare war or something. 

Republicans and Democrats crossed the aisle in the Senate to slam the withdrawal, saying the grim, tragic situation over there was "devastating" but "not quite devastating enough for us to actually do something about it."

"It's really bad over there and Trump is really evil for not sending more troops and fighting Turkey," said Senator Mitt Romney. "I mean, just to clarify, it's not bad enough for Congress to actually do its job and declare war. But still, it's pretty bad."

"Did I mention Trump is evil?"
