I Didn't Say It ....

Barack Obama, former great President, took on 45 without ever saying his name … like he’s Voldemort or something:

“You have to believe in facts. Without facts, there’s no basis for cooperation. If I say this is a podium and you say this is an elephant, it’s going to be hard for us to cooperate … I can’t find common ground if people say climate change is just not happening when almost all the world’s scientists tell us it is. I don’t know where to start talking to you about this. If you start saying it’s an elaborate hoax … where do we start? Unfortunately, too much of politics today seems to reject the very concept of objective truth. People just make stuff up. They just make stuff up … We see the utter loss of shame among political leaders where they’re caught in a lie and they just double down and they lie some more.”

Snap.
John McCain, on the traitor’s Treason Summit:

“Today’s press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. The damage inflicted by President _____’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate. But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake. President _____ proved not only unable, but unwilling to stand up to Putin. He and Putin seemed to be speaking from the same script as the president made a conscious choice to defend a tyrant against the fair questions of a free press, and to grant Putin an uncontested platform to spew propaganda and lies to the world.
No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant. Not only did President Trump fail to speak the truth about an adversary; but speaking for America to the world, our president failed to defend all that makes us who we are—a republic of free people dedicated to the cause of liberty at home and abroad. American presidents must be the champions of that cause if it is to succeed. Americans are waiting and hoping for President Trump to embrace that sacred responsibility. One can only hope they are not waiting totally in vain.”

To paraphrase: I like presidents who aren’t traitors.
Richard Burr, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman, on the Treason Summit:

“The Senate Intelligence Committee has reviewed the 2017 IC assessment and found no reason to doubt its conclusion that President Putin ordered an influence campaign aimed at the 2016 U.S. elections with the goal of undermining faith in our democratic process. Russia has conducted a coordinated cyberattack on state election systems, and hacked critical infrastructure. They have used social media to sow chaos and discord in our society. They have beaten and harassed U.S. diplomats and violated anti-proliferation treaties. Any statement by Vladimir Putin contrary to these facts is a lie and should be recognized as one by the President. Vladimir Putin is not our friend and never has been. Nor does he want to be our friend. His regime’s actions prove it. We must make clear that the United States will not tolerate hostile Russian activities against us or our allies.”

And yet _____ bends over for Putin.
Rudy Giuliani, naturally praising the traitor:

“I don’t know what it would have accomplished if Trump said, ‘I believed Putin did it.’ I don’t think we need to call Putin a liar. As far as I know there’s nothing showing that Putin knew about it. We just assume Putin knew something.”

Standing with traitors. That’s Rudy.
Chuck Schumer, Democratic Senator from New York, on the traitor:

“What, if anything, will Congress do in response to this awful trip? Where are our Republican colleagues … who know in their heart that the president is giving away the store to Vladimir Putin? … A single, ominous question now hangs over the White House: what could possibly cause President _____ to put the interests of Russia over those of the United States? Millions of Americans will continue to wonder if the only possible explanation for this dangerous behavior is the possibility that President Putin holds damaging information over President _____.”

It's the Pee Tape, I tell you, it’s the Pee Tape.
Lindsey Graham, goose-stepping GOP Senator from South Carolina … and I’m sorry about that … on the soccer ball Vlad gave to his Little Bitch at the Treason Summit:

“Finally, if it were me, I’d check the soccer ball for listening devices and never allow it in the White House.”

Yes, Miss Lindsey has nothing to say about an American president siding with Russia over his own country, because he’s creating a soccer ball conspiracy.
Girl, Bye.
Neil Cavuto, FOX Business host, to one of his guest who said the Treason Summit was _____’s chance to go after Putin for hacking the election:

“But he didn’t. And that’s what made it disgusting, that’s what made his performance disgusting. I’m sorry, it’s the only way I feel. It’s not a right or left thing to me, it’s just wrong. A US president on foreign soil talking to our biggest enemy, or adversary, or competitor … is essentially letting the guy get away with this and not even offering a mild criticism. That sets us back a lot. “I don’t think you get a second chance to make a good first impression at a stage and venue like this… I just found that Vladimir Putin appeared to run circles around the President and get him to buy––that is the guy standing next to him hook line and sinker––every single sneaky lie and misstatement he has made on this matter.”

Let’s be clear: _____ is Putin’s bitch, and that was made clear in Helsinki.
Paul Ryan, _____’s bitch boy, on the Treason Summit:

“There is no question that Russia interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy here and around the world. That is not just the finding of the American intelligence community but also the House Committee on Intelligence. The president must appreciate that Russia is not our ally. There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russia, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals. The United States must be focused on holding Russia accountable and putting an end to its vile attacks on democracy.”

So, you believe Russia interfered with the election, and yet you stand by and kiss the ass of the man who benefited from that?
Sit down, you pandering, lying, hypocritical fuck.
Rachel Maddow, on the president … for now … siding with Russia over America:

“Things are at a boil, things are going fast now. This is a time when everybody needs to pay attention. There is no explicable scenario for any of those things, unless you are willing to believe the worst. For everything that we have been through as a country, for every kind of trial and challenge and intrigue and embarrassment and scandal that we have been through as a nation, we haven’t ever had to reckon with the possibility that somebody has ascended to the presidency of the United States to serve the interests of another country rather than our own. What’s the corrective to that? How do you remedy that? These are no longer hypothetical questions. … And if the president did that today because he has some reason to serve that other country rather than our own, then a lot that has previously been inexplicable is now explicable. And that’s the worst case scenario. And, deep breath, it means that we are going to have to come to terms with this as a country. And we’re going to have to come to terms with what we need to do next as a country to fix this. And in order to do that, the blinders have to come off. We have to be real.”

The blinders come off and you cast a goddamned vote to get Democrats in office because, especially now, after Helsinki, it’s clear the GOP will do nothing about _____.

Sorry Bob but I disagree; I think it's the dirty money coming in from those pesky Ruskies that der Trumpenfuhrer has been laundering, plus the fact that he doesn't have $100 to call his own let alone ten Billion or whatever his latest feeble claim about his wealth is.

Helen is right. It's all the dirty money that tRump and his boys Uday (Beavis) and Qusay (Butthead) have been laundering for Putin and his buddies through their tRump so-called real estate empire. In all reality, tRump is losing money hand over fist. He has nothing to wipe his own ass with. If Cohen flips on him, tRump's world will tumble.

I just want to take this moment to give Anne Marie a hug. (((Carebear)))) Don't let the Idiotcracy make you crazy, honey. Deep breaths and calm knitting.

Rachel is right. That patriotic mask he's been lying behind, the Make America Great Again, is crumbling off. He will get worse and worse. The mid-terms will be ugly after the blue wave because he's going to try and stop it. The Republican party is dying of cancer, and it's going to be bad.

It's time to dump NUMB AS A STUMP Trump and duck tape the mouths of his base before anymore harm can be done. Rational people need to band together and stop this insanity before they drown in the bottomless cesspool created by RIN (Republican Induced Nausea)
