Turkish Wrath

The US visit by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was largely overshadowed by the appointment of a special counsel in the Trump/Russia investigation. But one incident is still making news. Eleven people were injured during a protest outside the Turkish ambassador’s residence. A video surfaced that makes it look like Erdogan’s people were involved, which led to this from John McCain: “We should throw their ambassador the hell out of the United States of America … This kind of thing cannot go un-responded to diplomatically.”
