When the history of Donald Trump’s presidency is ultimately written, July 16, 2018, will have a special entry. On a day when the setting called for a show of strength and resolve from an American president, Trump instead offered deference, defensiveness, equivocation and weakness.
If anyone can recall a performance by a U.S. president that rivaled the one seen around the world Monday, let them come forward. In the meantime, Trump’s extraordinary joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin will stand on its own, for sheer shock value and for the reality of an opportunity lost.
Here was a president turning his back on the collective work of U.S. intelligence agencies, looking the other way at indictments returned last week by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III against 12 Russian military intelligence officers who sought to undermine American democracy during the 2016 election, and falling back as he so often has on attacks against Hillary Clinton, criticism of Democrats and boasts about the size of his electoral college victory.
In reality, he did more than turn his back on the evidence of Russian attacks on the U.S. electoral process. He all but rejected it. In an attempt to say both sides have their views of what happened during the last presidential election, he proffered that his own view is that he can’t bring himself to accept that the Russians did it. “I don’t see any reason why [Russia would interfere],” he said.
The president of the United States just sold out the American intelligence community to the Russians. I’d say even the stupidest Trumpophile can understand that, but babyman’s supporters are fucking morons and really think attacks on the person who lost the past presidential election are proof of their dear leaders wisdom.
Oh, and Trey Gowdy (the jerkoff who ran the Bengazhi hearings) and all you GOP dipshits who gave the FBI guy a hard time in last week’s Republican led kangaroo court. Go fuck yourselves. You are tools of the Kremlin and you have done more damage to this country than any “radical liberal” you wagged your forked tongues at. There is nothing you can say that should merit anything more than garbage being thrown in your faces.
It’s now more than obvious that Putin has something on the cheating craven Cheeto. Most likely film of him on a bed smiling with his mouth open while hookers shower him with their essence.
