I think we should take the GOP at their word, er, words.
I mean, during the 2016 election campaign, Hillary Clinton was continually vilified by Republicans who claimed she was unfit to lead because she used a private email server as Secretary of State.
But then cut to last week when President-For-Now _____ revealed highly classified information to Russian officials during a White House meeting. That information, given to the United States by a partner—ALLEGEDLY Israel—in an intelligence-sharing arrangement, did not concern specific intelligence sources and methods, but _____’s disclosure could compromise our relationship with that partner.
Now, to be fair, the president—even one who is an idiot—has the authority to declassify information at will, so _____ did nothing illegal, but we still have those GOP words of wisdom about Hillary that just might bite the Grand Old White Men party in the ass ... like a Tweet by the Not-Yet-President-For-Now, who said:
“Crooked Hillary Clinton and her team "were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information." Not fit!”
Add to that, House Speaker, Paul Ryan, or as I like to call him, Pandering F%k, who took to Twitter at least once a month from July to November to call Clinton “reckless” and “downright dangerous”:
“It's simple: Individuals who are ‘extremely careless’ w/ classified info should be denied further access to it.”
“The American people need to know what accountability Sec. Clinton will face for her mishandling of classified info.”
“It’s no small matter to hand over classified info to a person as reckless w/ national security info as Sec. Clinton.”
“The documents from the FBI demonstrate Hillary Clinton's reckless & downright dangerous handling of classified info.”
“I renew my call for the Director of National Intelligence to suspend all classified briefings for Secretary Clinton.”
“These documents further demonstrate Secretary Clinton's complete disregard for handling classified information.”
And let’s not forget Little Marco Rubio, who may have taken a day off from attending an ALLEGED foam party, to Tweet:
“The FBI's decision regarding Clinton's mishandling of classified emails once again proves that she is DQ'd from being Commander in Chief.”
And then there’s Rand Paul, who, like Rubio, was a massive failure in securing the GOP nomonation for president, but did take the time to suggest Clinton be jailed:
“The appearance is terrible. The decision is astounding. Ppl have gone to jail for less severe classified breaches and national security.”
Yup, they wanted Clinton jailed, they wanted her out of any chance of being president, because, maybe, maybe, her use of an unsecured server could have, could have, leaked information, but when their candidate, who every single day reminds us all that he is clearly unfit to be president, actually does divulge classfiifed information to the Russians, who helped him win the office, the GOP looks the other way.
Of _____’s ginormous gaffe, Pandering F&k said this:
“We have no way to know what was said, but protecting out nation’s secrets is paramount.”
Huh, Pandering F%k, you had no proof that anything Secretary Clinton did harmed this country in any way, but you do have proof, clear proof because the asshat admitted it, that President-For-Now _____ is unfit to serve and yet you sidestep.
I am so hoping the people of Wisconsin wise up and vote your ass out of office because you, sir, are exactly what is wrong with politics today; the GOP’s Tribal Hypocrisy, in condemning others for the same things you do and doing it gleefully and without batting an eye, is disgusting.
The lot of them.
