This is not how you cover up the fact that your dad’s campaign colluded with the Russians to throw the 2016 presidential election in his favor (via Esquire):
On the electric Twitter machine, for reasons known only to whatever pagan deity watches over this gang of grifters and fools, Junior had published the entire email chain, the contents of which, in any ordinary time, would have everybody involved being fitted for leg-irons, their room reservations at Leavenworth already booked. From The Guardian:
The emails show music promoter Rob Goldstone telling the future US president’s son that “the crown prosecutor of Russia” had offered “to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father”. Goldstone adds: “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr Trump.” Trump Jr replies 17 minutes later and welcomes the offer. “If it’s what you say, I love it, especially later in the summer.”
I might have been cautious about commenting merely on this information, largely because this Goldstone character looks like the mugshot of every two-bit hoodlum capped by Whitey Bulger, but then Junior threw my caution to the wind.
The email chain makes clear that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government. Further, it also makes plain that not only Junior, but also Manafort and Kushner knew the campaign had done so because Junior was kind enough to forward the emails to them. He incriminated himself. He incriminated the other two. He made a lie out of practically everything that the Trump camp has said on the subject for over a year. He landed a clean shot below the waterline of his father’s administration. Again, I thought of Nixon, standing behind a podium in the White House, while the tape from June 23, 1972 unspooled to an eager world, and then telling the assembled press corps, “See? It’s just like I said. I’m not involved.”
This isn’t a smoking gun. It’s a smoking machine gun, and Junior is holding it to his nose, snorting the fumes, and acting like he just bagged a 2,000 pound elephant.
Except this elephant is his dad’s campaign, and he doesn’t seem to realize he’s fucked up bigly. Maybe this is the way he’s always been. He fucks up, and dad pays someone off to clean up the mess.
I though George W. Bush (the dumber) had the stupidest administration in history, and I thought Richard Nixon had the most corrupt. They don’t hold a candle to the mess we have running this country now.
Look at it this way: It took Bush and Nixon years to reach the pinnacle of their corruption and incompetence.
Babyman has been in office for less than six months.
Meanwhile, the pump truppets are watching Junior Babyman on Hannity and fill their skull cavities with more bullshit.
