READ: GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger Tweets at Trump: ‘What Changed? This Is Weakness. America Is Far More Honorable Than This.’

Truth.

Until President Donald Trump’s decision to abandon Kurdish allies to—who were crucial in U.S. efforts to contain ISIS—to Turkish aggression, Republicans were hesitant to ever speak out against him.

The decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Northern Syria led even the most devout of Trump’s allies like Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) to speak out against the decision. However, few if any, Republicans who spoke out against the decision were brave enough to tag Trump’s Twitter account in their objection.

That changed today when Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) tagged the President’s account in a tweet decrying the decision as “weakness” and beneath the honor of the United States.

Kinzinger was replying to a tweet that implied the Kurds could be deliberately releasing ISIS prisoners in their custody in an effort to get the United States involved.

People applauded Kinzinger’s willingness to call the President out directly. Soon, #SayHisName was trending on Twitter.

Meanwhile, others continued to call out Republicans who criticized the decision without criticizing the President who made it.

Instead, many GOP leaders have made sentiments like “we can only hope” things work out for the Kurds or, astoundingly, that Democrats’ focus on impeachment is to blame.

Their tactics don’t appear to be working.
