“Read the Transcripts!” – Trump tweet 12-9-19
Update: “Read the Transcripts! “us” is a reference to USA, not me!” – Trump tweet 12-10-19
Look, as I have written before we all know that the transcript that Trump released of the “perfect call” to the Ukrainian President was, at best, just the pieces, parts they chose to make available. Hell the transcript says as much on the document under the heading CAUTION. We have even heard testimony from a decorated war hero who was on the call that confirmed and notified his higher ups that the released transcript was far from complete or even truthful. And still Trump, Sean Hannity and the Republican Party tell the world, as their only defense, “Read the Transcript!”
But Trump’s latest read the transcript configuration or as I like to call it “let me throw this handful of shit on the wall and see if it sticks” I find hilarious and it has to do with two letters, u and s.
In the transcript of the “perfect call” Trump states; “I would like you to do us a favor though”. Apparently what Trump meant by us and what was obviously lost in the translation but has just recently and conveniently been discovered is that us really meant US. That would be the United States. So let’s look at that request again under this new context, “I would like you to do US a favor though”. Oh yea, much better, I mean that makes perfect sense. Trump and the Republicans are right, this whole impeachment thing by the do nothing Democrats is a hoax. Shit, I wonder why Trump waited two months to clear this up. Us means US, case closed!
So I am sure you are asking yourself how stupid do they think we are? Well the answer to that question is another us, not the 60% us but the 40% us. That us that believes every theory the Fox News brain trust invents. That us is that is easily distracted by all the shiny objects that Trump thrust in front of them with names like Obama, Hillary, Deep State, and Fake News. That us that is too proud and vain to admit that voting for this fuck-up was a mistake. That is the stupid us Trump is counting on. The stupid us that the Graham brothers, Lindsey and Franklin, are staking both their political and moral life on.

As I listen to the Republican side of the impeachment argument I keep thinking to myself “how stupid do they think we are?” The answer is very simple, “they think us be very stupid”. And just so we know where we stand, remember how the President feels about us or maybe US; “Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure, it’s not your fault.”
