Recep Tayyip Erdogan's latest waltz into absurdity suggests that he might actually be mad, otherwise known as Islamism. At a campaign event on Saturday, Erdogan welcomed a nervous six-year-old girl, Amine Tiras, onto the stage. That was fine. But then Erdogan jumped off the deep end.
He declared that "[Tiras'] Turkish flag is in her pocket. If she becomes a martyr, Allah willing, she will be wrapped with it."
Looking directly at the girl, Erdogan remarked "She is ready for everything, aren’t you?"
For a kindergartener, the prospect of dying in battle is likely not an exciting one.
It was unsurprising then, that Tiras started crying in response to her not so dear leader's commentary.
Becoming bored of Tiras' crying, Erdogan soon shoved her off towards a staffer.
Just a reminder, Turkey is the former Ottoman Empire, which was responsible for the slaughter of 1.5 million Armenians during World War I.
