Senator and Republican Elder Statesman Orrin Hatch: "...all this stuff about Trump's sons and daughter -- it's a bunch of bunk..I don't think this is relevant to the Trump administration."
Bunk. Bunk, I tell you. But how about going to an even higher authority? And I'm not talking Hebrew National hot dogs here:
Katie Pavlich, Town Hall: "President Trump Defends Don Jr. Amid Email Scandal: My Son is a High Quality Person"
Maybe compared to yourself, Donald.
After that, we really don't need to hear from the run of the mill right wing assholes, but Green Eagle is going to plow on anyway:
Cortney O'Brien, Town Hall: "Dems Insist Congress Must Investigate Trump Jr."
Only Dems, apparently. Only Dems are concerned about treason or corruption. Republicans, on the other hand? Their chief issue is fantasy misuse of a pizza parlor.
Katie Pavlich, Town Hall: "Grassley Confirms: Yes, Comey's Memos He Shared With The Media Are Classified"
In Mordor, perhaps. Not in this country, but they are so desperate for a distraction by this point, that any lie will do.
Lauretta Brown, Town Hall: "Hillary Clinton Models ‘Nasty Woman’ Shirt to Raise Funds for Planned Parenthood"
Well, there you go, the Democratic equivalent of high treason. Listen, the direction things are going, there is only one distraction left, short of starting a war with North Korea: throwing Hillary in prison and holding show trials. So don't be surprised if it comes to that. And how about another issue that is far more important than having a traitor in the White House:
Christine Rousselle, Town Hall: "NYT Columnist Slammed For Condescending Take On Italian Deli Meat"
God, it's beyond jokes. And now, all you need to know about things:
Todd Starnes, Town Hall: "The Difference Between Trump and Obama"
This somehow centers around the fact that Trump once picked up someone's hat that had blown off, and Obama (who was not there at the time, of course) didn't. No mention of the difference involved in the fact that Trump is a traitor and Obama isn't.
Guy Benson, Town Hall: " Is This the "Smoking Gun" the Collusion Chorus Has Been Waiting For? If this email exists and is authentic, it may -- repeat, may -- represent the first evidence of collusion between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign"
Sorry, Guy, this is about the fiftieth "smoking gun" in this story. But don't worry; a couple of days and you will get your groove back and be going around telling everyone that it all means nothing.
Hey wait, it didn't take that long. Guy is recovering by the end of his column:
"By the way, even if additional evidence emerges that this amounted to collusion, sordid and craven conduct isn't necessarily a crime."
Because we all know that "sordid and craven conduct" isn't enough to oppose the guy in the White House. That's just standard operating practice for a Republican. I mean, remember when he said he could shoot someone on fifth avenue and it wouldn't make a difference to his followers? Well, mark that statement down, because it's the last known occasion on which Trump told the truth about anything.
Kimberley Ross, Red State: "CRUZ: We Need to Work on Obamacare Repeal Instead of Take August Recess"
Sure, sure. He's just afraid to show up at any town halls.
Charlie Martin, PJ Media: "And They Claim TRUMP Is Collaborating With Russia? The Washington Post and others are leaking material that is damaging the United States. Why isn't anyone mad about it?"
See, Trump committing abominable offenses is just fine. Reporting that fact is "leaking." Hint, Charlie: When the press prints things, they are not "leaking." They are "reporting." A crime to you, I know, but actually something with a relatively long and honorable history in our country.
Charlie Martin, PJ Media: "So what's the over/under for the first story saying Trump Jr. committed a crime by releasing the emails the New York Times was about to leak?"
Charlie, in the first place, that's like saying that you didn't murder someone because another person was about to murder them tomorrow. In any event, dumbass, it's not releasing the e-mails is not the crime: it's the treason revealed by the e-mails.
And just to sum it all up:
PJ Media: "Now Pundits Are Saying Don Jr. Russia Meeting Is 'Treason'?!?"
Yup. That's pretty much the story. Got a problem with that?
Tyler O'Neal, PJ Media: "Politico Attacks Rubio for Tweeting Proverbs, the 'Most Republican Part of the Bible'
Hey, to my mind, the most Republican part of the Bible is Genesis 19, where Lot has sex with his own daughters. It's just like living in Alabama.
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "BOOM! Donald Trump Jr. Beats #FakeNews and Releases Entire Email Chain on Meeting Russian Lawyer"
He beats "fake news" by proving that they were absolutely right. More evidence of why they call Jim the Stupidest Man On The Internet. But Jim is not done being Stupid!
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "HILLARY COLLUSION: Campaign Set Up “Private, Off the Record” Meeting with Chinese Ambassador"
Jim forgot to mention that Hillary did not "collude" with the Chinese ambassador- the Chinese ambassador asked for the meeting, which Hillary did not attend. Little different from Trump, huh, Jim? No? I didn't think you'd be able to grasp subtle reasoning like that.
Cristina Laila, Gateway Pundit: "Hannity Goes Off on Team Hillary’s Collusion With Ukrainian Govt Officials: “Where’s the Outrage?” As TGP previously reported, Hillary Clinton’s aides met with Ukrainian government officials and journalists specifically to dig up dirt on team Trump."
See, Hillary "collaborated" with a country, the Ukraine, to publicize the fact that it had been invaded by a vicious foreign dictator who was allied with Trump. That's sort of like the horrible time when FDR collaborated with France by letting people know that they had been invaded by Germany. A vicious crime exactly the same as Trump's colluding with the aforementioned foreign dictator to rig our Presidential election.
Chip McLean, Renew America: "Nancy-boy CNN now blackmailing private citizens over insults"
Nancy-boy. Well, let's just lash out there. And notice that identifying disgusting human beings in public is now blackmail.
Bob Unruh, World Net Daily: "TRUMP JR. EMAIL SAGA IS 'ABSOLUTE GARBAGE CR-P'...'It's got all the ingredients of a story except fact'
Well, except the fact that they came right from the guy involved, Trump's son, who has never been known to make one step without permission from his daddy, except maybe to go off and kill some endangered animals. But listen, Trump minions: there is NO FACT there! None at all! Just keep repeating that to yourselves.
Larry Tomczak, World Net Daily: "SUMMER OF LOVE? Harmless music festivals? Anything but"
Yeah, I know I promised that this Wingnut Wrapup would be about Trump's treason, but who could pass that one up? I don't want to get sidetracked here, so I will make an exception: if you want to read a compendium of real right wing lunacy, just click on the link, and rock on, dude.
Ian Hanchett, Breitbart: "…CNN LOL: ‘THIS IS LOOKING MORE AND MORE LIKE TREASON’…"
LOL. Treason. LOL. I guess that puts this issue in context, say compared to Hillary's child-rape pizza parlor.
Aaron Klein, Breitbart: "…ANALYSIS: NYT, WAPO DROP RUSSIA CONSPIRACY STORIES FOR MAX IMPACT"
Because if there is a sin in journalism, it's not lying and smearing- Breitbart's specialties by the way- but rather trying to get maximum attention to their stories.
Well, that's what they've come up with today. I expect some even more preposterous attempts to evade the obvious truth in the next couple of days, but they're off to a flying start. So, just let me leave you with this observation from Dan Rather:
"only a hypocrite, a cynic or a fool could argue that this development can be innocuously explained."
