President-elect Trump has vehemently denied that Russian officials have any “compromising personal and financial information” about him, as CNN and later BuzzFeed News suggested.
‘Russia has never tried to use leverage over me. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA – NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!’

Although CNN refrained from publishing the two-page dossier that alleged Trump received “golden showers” from Russian sex workers because it has not been verified, BuzzFeed released the information to the public so that the American people could “make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the US government.”
One person, however, isn’t buying into Trump’s innocent act, as he would like us to.
Political commentator Keith Olbermann dissected Trump’s latest hot mess, calling him out for being “an idiot marionette belonging to Putin.”
‘Any essential distinction between Donald Trump being an idiot marionette belonging to Putin, and Donald Trump acting like a Russian agent has been fully erased in one week, and it has been erased by Donald Trump because. He. Cannot. Leave. It. Alone.’
Olbermann went on, calling Trump’s pathetic efforts to cover up the ordeal “politically tone deaf.”
‘Because every move Donald Trump has made this year has been politically tone deaf. He could not make it look more like he is covering up something, something horrifying, if he hung a sign around his neck reading “cover-up.”‘
Olbermann concluded his assessment by reprimanding Trump for disparaging the intelligence community to defend his connections with Russia.
Despite Trump’s claims, blatant evidence has emerged that suggests the president elect does indeed have ties to Russia. Even his own son, Donald Trump Jr., admitted that “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets” and that they “see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”
Despite several lapses in stories in addition to unverifiable sources, if one’s thing is clear, it’s that Trump is indeed hiding something, and it’s only a matter of time before we all find out. But the question is, how on Earth did this man get elected?!
