So Our Idiot President Committed Some Light Treason
This fucking dummy. I feel like it’s just common knowledge that when you know you’ve committed crimes or whatever, you don’t just ANNOUNCE IT to the world. That’s the first rule of Crime Club! DON’T TALK ABOUT CRIME CLUB. But, as we know by now, Donald Trump is quite possibly the stupidest man alive. At this point, U.S. intelligence agencies are all in agreement: Russia meddled in our election. They did so with intent to sway the election. This isn’t a conspiracy theory anymore. It really happened, and lots of people have been indicted and will almost certainly be going to prison. But Fox News doesn’t talk about it much, so maybe that’s why Donald Trump decided to commit treason at the Helsinki Summit. If it’s not on Fox News, it didn’t happen!
During the Helsinki Summit, Trump and Putin spent two hours alone, before taking the stage in what can only be described as the most surreal and disastrous press conference of his entire presidency. Which is really saying something!
Our dumbass president declined to endorse reports from U.S. intelligence agencies that confirm Russia’s meddling during the 2016 presidential election. INSTEAD, this fucking cockwomble (thank you, UK, for your lovely insults during his visit there) took Putin’s side. Putin! The guy who has people poisoned, murdered, and imprisoned for going against him. He’s the guy Trump believes and supports. You guys, he totally has the pee tape.
During the presser, Trump said he didn’t see any reason why Russia would meddle in the election (LOLOK pussy-grabber). He said, “I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today.” Then he pivoted to talking about emails and servers BECAUSE OF COURSE HE DID.
I wasn’t sure I would ever see the day that members of the government finally found their balls and came out against this turd. But apparently, Russia was the line, and Trump crossed it. Snorted it? Entirely possible.
I never thought I would see the day when our American President would stand on the stage with the Russian President and place blame on the United States for Russian aggression. This is shameful.

JUST IN: Former Defense Secretary Ash Carter, not known to utter anything unambiguous: “I never saw or imagined so uneven a handover of American security interests and principles with nothing in return…It was like watching the destruction of a cathedral.”

Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???

House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senator John McCain, and even that turtle-looking motherfucker Mitch McConnell all released statements condemning the president’s remarks at the Helsinki Summit. Other Republicans are “deeply troubled”, which is obvious as hell to the rest of us, but I guess they meant about this shitshow specifically. It’s really hard to rank the disasters this guy has presided over, but good grief, this one really takes the cake. You’re not supposed to side with a foreign adversary over your own intelligence committee, you moron! And you’re CERTAINLY not supposed to do it ON THE WORLD STAGE.
So, anywho. That was Monday! As far as Mondays go, it was a doozy. All I know for sure is that the pee tape is real, and it’s better/worse than any of us could have imagined in our wildest dreams.
