These are the headlines I woke-up too this morning;

Donald Trump Jr.’s Evolving Statements
One of my maternal grandmothers favorite sayings, other than “Bless his heart” which when translated from Southern means, he is a piece of shit, was “Oh my goodness!” When anything bad happened, or when her grandson slipped up and said something “colorful” to her Southern Baptist ears you could expect an “Oh my goodness!” from my sweet, buttermilk biscuit baking grandmother.
Last night I flipped between the Tour de France and the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC. When I went to bed last night there was really nothing new about the Donald Trump, Jr. Russia meeting. His Dad, “our” President, was telling everyone his son was a “good boy” albeit a 39-year-old “good boy” and that it was Obama’s fault, big surprise, that the Russian lawyer was even in this country. Trump reiterated, to anyone that would listen, that there was no story here and, the big AND, he had just learned about all of this “stuff” a couple of days ago.
It’s the big AND that I find so unbelievable. His son, son in-law and campaign manager met with someone, and apparently now according to the latest headlines, another someone, and maybe another, another someone, one floor below Trump and are “offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father.” And the email continues, “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump”
So how many of you out there in the WordPress blog world believe that “our” President JUST found out about this meeting a couple of days ago? Show of hands please. Yea, that’s what I thought, about 35% of you. The same 35% that think this whole Russia thing is “FAKE NEWS put out by the Dems, and played up by the media, in order to mask the big election defeat and the illegal leaks!”
Honestly this “Fake News” Russia thing must be heating up. “Our” President just added another lawyer to his already large battalion of attorney’s today, a guy with a famous name, Ty Cobb. Yes, they are related. And to think, I just thought the Trump Presidency was going to be a boon for the “Fake News” outlets. Hell, Forbes might need to recalculate the Presidents fortune on a quarterly basis once all those attorneys bills start rolling in! Oh my goodness, stay tuned.
“You should get everyone in a room, and from the moment you watched either ‘Dr. Zhivago’ or read ‘Brothers Karamazov’ to the point you had a shot of liquor with a guy in a furry hat, you need to disclose every contact you have ever had with Russia.” – Rep. Trey Gowdy
