Red herring

Red Herring

Sorry, but this is years ago, before Paul Manafort was part of the Trump campaign. But why aren’t Crooked Hillary & the Dems the focus?????” – Trump tweet 10-30-17

I just couldn’t resist breaking this tweet down from “our” President. So what The Donald is telling us is that Paul Manafort is and was a crook before he hired the crook to work for his campaign. Nice. Here is the puzzling question, why did Trump hire him in the first place? If anyone in the Trump world had done the simplest Google search, let alone the type of vetting you would think any sane, rational or organized Presidential campaign would logically do on Manafort red flags wouldn’t have just jumped out they would have bitten you in the ass. This guy was sleazy with a capital S from the very beginning, just the kind of sleazeball “our” President loves to be associated with. Everyone, and I do mean everyone seemed to know it accept, wait for it, the “I’m a very intelligent person” our own, Donald J. Trump.

Did any of you ever wonder why The Donald overlooked all the garbage that trailed Paul Manafort until the “fake news” made it impossible to ignore? Robert Mueller knows the answer. Cash. More specifically cash for Trump real estate and even more specifically than that, Russian cash for Trump real estate.

For all of us Trump “fans” Paul Manafort was the gift, Rick Gates was the wrapping paper, but George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser who has pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents about his contact with Kremlin-connected Russians is the pretty bow on top. It would be a safe bet to state that this kid has already cut his deal with Mueller and as expected the Trumps have begun their deflect, divert, and attack campaign with this retweet from Donald Trump the younger (the lesser?); “Papadopoulos was an unpaid foreign policy campaign adviser who stupidly lied to the FBI. He wanted Trump to meet Putin, Trump Team said no.” At this point who are you going to believe, a man facing prison time who has nothing to lose for telling the truth or a guy, DJT the lesser, who kills exotic animals trapped in a fenced area?

And if all this wasn’t sad enough, male spawn #2, Eric Trump, sent a mass email out this morning begging supporters for “just $1” to help his father fight the “opposition against” The Donald “and this Administration every day.” Why? Because theses reelect Trump committees and groups are footing the legal bills for “our” President and his family. Maybe Joe and Josephine Deplorable know this already, maybe they don’t, then again maybe they don’t care and send that dollar in. It seems a lot like sending Jimmy Swaggart $100 to get on his pray chain and we know the Deplorable nation will write that check.

Over the course of the next few weeks Trump, Fox News, Breitbart and all of the other deceitful news agencies will bombard us with stories about Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, the DNC, and whatever else they think can and will deflect, and divert the attention off of Trump and the Russians. As I mentioned in one of my previous post something smells fishy at least now we know what kind of fish we are dealing with.

    “That was years ago.” Yeah, I’m sure Manafort reformed his crooked ways once he joined the Trump campaign. There’s no way an upstanding man like Trump would have tolerated that from him.🙄

    Of course I was nodding my head as I read, but then I got to this: DJT the lesser, who kills exotic animals trapped in a fenced area … and my breakfast came back up. This entire kit and kaboodle family makes me sick to my stomach, but this particular action disturbs me at the deepest level of my being. There simply are no words …

    They have already began on the state propaganda machine known as fox news. Hours of clinton / russia collusion crap. They want to badly connect Hillary to the nonexistent uranium stuff. This is a great article that has the information. AM Joy also gets the republican person to admit they have these talking points hoping to change the conversation to Hillary and make it look like Hillary is the one that is committing crimes. Hugs

    I watched Joy demolish the Republican talking head…it was sad really. so sad that poor woman couldn’t back up her statements at all, could only keep repeating the manta “but Clinton”…does anyone on that red-hatted side understand that Ms Clinton was NOT elected and she holds NO office and she is just a citizen now? sheesh.

    • “It does strike me that in the last few days at least, Fox News seems to think that’s where I live, in the White House. Because they spend a disproportionate amount of their time talking about impeaching me.” – Hillary Clinton speaking at a dinner for the Human Rights Campaign in Washington D.C. this past Saturday

  7. The genius of our constitution is in the final analysis the President stands alone. Nixon learned this and Trump will. I don’t know if impeachment is possible but tend to doubt it. When the going gets rough, the rats start abandoning the ship. Trump may see the exit ways crowded soon. By the the way where is Jared these days?

    • IF Trump makes it through the year I think the only man left standing in his administration Jan. 1 will be Nikki Haley and Ben Carson because Ben’s got no where else to go. The babysitters, Kelly, Tillerson, and Mattis already have one foot out the door and WHO would blame them?

      Jared’s probably waiting by the door for his special package from Mueller.
