Axios: Erdogan upends Oval meeting to play anti-Kurd film on iPad. “An Oval Office meeting yesterday with Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan took a dark turn when Erdogan pulled out his iPad and made the group watch a propaganda video that depicted the leader of the primarily-Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces as a terrorist, according to three sources familiar with the meeting.”

+ In addition to attempting to propagandize US officials in the Oval Office (where’d he get the idea that would work?), Erdogan returned Trump’s letter advising him not to invade Syria. NYT: Erdogan Hands ‘Tough Guy’ Letter Back to Trump. But don’t worry. Relations between Erdogan and Trump are still tight. Erdogan referred to Trump as a “dear friend” and Trump countered with, “I’m a big fan.”
