Sunday Morning Bobblehead Thread
January 5, 2020

The first thing you're going to notice about this week's lineup on the Sunday shows is that Mike Pompeo has been booked for all of the so-called "major" shows, presumably to sell us all on the hastening of the return of Christ, or something.

Expect it to be about Iran, all day long. The warmongering begins with the so-called "President" who spent part of his Saturday afternoon threatening war crimes against the people of Iran, because murdering their second-highest official was apparently not enough for him.

Here's a list of expected guests -- and Mike Pompeo.

ABC’s “This Week” — Secretary of State Mike Pompeo; Senator Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.
