Is There Any Other Story Today?

Betteridge’s law of headlines is in effect.

The Washington Post: “Trump just colluded with Russia. Openly.”

NYTimes:

“Trump Sheds All Notions of How a President Should Conduct Himself Abroad”

“President Trump, who gleefully defies the norms of presidential behavior, went somewhere in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday where none of his predecessors have ever gone: He accepted the explanation of a hostile foreign leader over the findings of his own intelligence agencies.

“Mr. Trump’s declaration that he saw no reason not to believe President Vladimir V. Putin when he said the Russians did not try to fix the 2016 election was extraordinary enough. But it was only one of several statements the likes of which no other president has uttered while on foreign soil. He condemned the Justice Department’s investigation of his campaign’s ties to Russia as a ‘disaster for our country.’

“He suggested that the F.B.I. deliberately mishandled its investigation of Russia’s hacking of the [DNC]. And he labeled an F.B.I. agent who testified about that investigation before Congress as a ‘disgrace to our country.’ In the fiery, disruptive, rules-breaking arc of Mr. Trump’s statecraft, his assertions during a news conference with Mr. Putin marked a new milestone, the foreign policy equivalent of Charlottesville. …

“Rather than defend the United States against those who would threaten it, he attacked his own citizens and institutions. Rather than challenge Mr. Putin, an adversary with a well-documented record of wrongdoing against the United States, he praised him without reservation. His statements were so divorced from American policy goals, so at odds with the rest of his administration, so inexplicable on so many levels that they brought to the surface a question that has long shadowed Mr. Trump: Does Russia have something on him?”

Wingnuttia:

  • Staff-banging, Serial Adulterer Noot: “President Trump must clarify his statements in Helsinki on our intelligence system and Putin. It is the most serious mistake of his presidency and must be corrected—immediately.”
  • Walking Dead Brit Hume: “Because Trump is unable to see past himself, he sees the Russia meddling investigation as only about him.”
  • America’s Dad Joe Walsh: “What Trump did today was commit treason. He cannot be supported anymore.”

And now, for something different:

  • Sean Hannity: “[You showed] strength, not appeasement.”

And in conclusion, Comrade Traitor tries to spin it:

    Of course, he “has GREAT confidence in MY intelligence people” because his intelligence people are the Russians.

    Questions;
    While it’s demonstrably true that there is no other story today, is that good news or bad news?

    Given that what seems like just a few minutes ago we were talking about putting children in cages, and given that we’re still doing that in unknown numbers and in undisclosed locations, what are the odds that this trend will continue and we’ll be talking about Something Else by this time next week?

    If he gets away with this, are there any limits on what he might get away with going forward?

      Something Else is a problem. This administration is a firehose of bullshit. There is soooo much to process nobody can keep up. Mueller keeps hiring prosecutors for a reason.

    We must assume going forward that Comrade Stupid handed over the equivalent of the nuclear football to Putin in the private meeting in exchange for that soccer ball in the press conference. It really is THAT bad.

    The entire right hemisphere seriously lost their shit because Obama bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia. They called it the “Apology Tour”.

    I’m almost tempted to find out what limp balls has to say today, but I wouldn’t forgive myself, even if there was a quart of tequila involved.

    During the rigged 2016 preznidential election, I got this hat for my nephew, who speaks Russian and is an elected state official. I don’t think he wears it to work, though.
