Trump World Really Are Putin’s Useful Idiots

“I got you, Comrade!”

Speaking of mail:

…which brings us to the topic of the GOP-led Senate intelligence committee’s final report on Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. We learn that there was even closer connections between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives than we thought:

Sen. Big Gulp, er, Marco Rubio declared that the report somehow exonerates The Russian Usurper Comrade Stupid, because they  found no evidence of direct cooperation between Comrade Stupid hisself and the Russians. Little Marco had to reach really high for that one.

Today’s Press Run takes our failed Political Press to task:

The conclusions of the three-year probe are stunning — and they’re not. It’s shocking to think an American president was elected because his side gleefully reached out to a foreign adversary and leaned into their efforts to undercut the integrity of a U.S. election. (The report describes Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort as a “grave counterintelligence threat.”)

It’s not shocking because it’s Trump, it’s 2020, and so much of his anti-American behavior has been normalized. It’s been normalized by the Republican Party, which could not care less about Trump’s treacherous behavior. It’s also been normalized by the political press, whose woeful coverage of the Wikileaks email dump in 2016 helped elect Trump. That’s why the press owes Clinton an apology.

Most in the media have never acknowledged, let alone apologized for, their shameful election performance. The new Senate report though, sheds additional light on that egregious failure. Now, after Trump threatened to defund the U.S. Postal Service so ballots cannot be counted, it’s important to examine the media’s 2016 shortcomings when covering Trump’s authoritarian behavior.

It’s so good. Please go read it. The Media is essentially an unindicted co-conspirator.

    Fucking traitor! At the very least he’s a solid Russian asset. You have no idea how much I despise this Quisling.

        I know, but it bears repeating. Look, I’m married to a Russian-American from the old country and I helped sponsor her wonderful daughter to come here as a green-card holder. So I have nothing against the Russian people. The government, however, is something else. The very idea that the President of the United States is in bed with these bastards makes me nauseous. My father would be rolling over in his grave if he saw this. He was an Air Force pilot during the height of the Cold War. So, yeah, I’m pretty radicalized.

    Trump and his party committed crimes that have now been fully documented. However, they managed to manipulate the information to be released piecemeal and fragmented so they had time to cover up, mislead, and redirect the facts so they couldn’t be charged.

    And now that it’s out, they’re fudging up everything from the Post Office to the election to the Conventions, and throw in Covid and the mess just gets worse.

    The Republican Party is a party of crooks and criminals. They will stop at nothing to stay in power.
