It’s one of the oldest tricks in the book. Chevy Chase used it in the movie, Fletch, where he told a guy holding a shotgun to tie his shoe laces.
As soon as the guy looked down, Fletch (Chase) kicked him in the balls and beat feet.
It’s a neat distraction and seems to work repeatedly on those with a limited source of information. And by now you know that when I say limited source of information, I mean that they believe whatever Trump tells them, especially when it’s echoed by Fox and the rest of the right wing propaganda machine.
Donnie’s hand picked Attorney General (Billy Barr), his hand picked Secretary of State (Mikey Pompeo) and America’s prodigious intelligence agencies have told us that Russia has perpetrated the largest, most widespread, pernicious and threatening attacks on America’s government agencies and businesses in history.
Does Donnie come out swinging, outraged at the audacity of a cyber attack equivalent to 9/11 or Pearl Harbor, threatening retribution for a hostile action against the country he’s sworn to protect?
I think you know the answer to that.
Don the Con, who gets no presidential daily briefs, holds no cabinet meetings that don’t focus on whacked out conspiracy theories about non-existent voter fraud, reads nothing and only knows what the voices in his head and on Fox TV tell him says, It’s not Russia. Maybe it’s China.
For four years he’s been saying, It’s not Russia. For four years he’s been saying, I believe Vladimir Putin over the conclusions of our own intelligence agencies.
For four years he’s done everything in his power to weaken the United Nations, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the United States in blatant efforts to support and embolden Vladimir Putin and Russia.
Russia, Russia, Russia is not a hoax. The Mueller Report and the Republicans’ own Intelligence Committee report state unequivocally that the Trump campaign was up to its eyeballs in Russian agents and they all lied about it.
Mike Flynn pleaded guilty TWICE to lying to the FBI and is only free because our corrupt president pardoned him.
The list goes on and on, but for the sake of brevity, I just want to ask one question:
WHAT THE HECK DOES TRUMP HAVE TO DO BEFORE HIS PEOPLE STOP TYING THEIR SHOE LACES AND WAKE UP TO THE FACT THAT HE WORKS FOR VLADIMIR PUTIN, NOT THEM?
