In some amazing twist of fate, every imaginable scandal has suddenly hit the right-wing airwaves about Hillary Clinton in the past two weeks…at the same time that indictments, arrests, and perjury allegations have come down against Trump’s former campaign manager, his business associate, and Trump’s attorney general. It’s a truly astounding turn of events.
While it is true that Donna Brazile released a book in which she claimed that Hillary Clinton and the DNC rigged the primary election against Bernie Sanders, Trump’s immediate focus on this story is little more than a distraction from the serious charges against those surrounding him. His utter inability to move on from an election he won – although not by the popular vote, which seems to be a sticking point for his battered ego – makes it evident that the corruption coming to light about his own campaign has him truly scared.
It is also astounding that Trump is suddenly a fan of Brazile, especially considering the fact that he’s bashed her at every opportunity, saying that she gave Clinton debate questions while ignoring the fact that Megyn Kelly revealed Trump was also given questions. Before today, Brazile and everyone in the DNC were just habitual liars. Now, she has a brand new fan in President Trump, although he should probably check out some of the other statements she’s made today.
For the record, the contract Brazille is claiming as proof that Clinton “rigged” the election is already debunked. Bernie Sanders is on record saying he signed the exact same contract. Never mind that, though. Trump needs a public distraction!
Trump might also want to look up the definition of money laundering. Apparently, it does not mean what Trump seems to believe it does.
‘Money laundering is the process of creating the appearance that large amounts of money obtained from criminal activity, such as drug trafficking or terrorist activity, originated from a legitimate source. The money from the illicit activity is considered dirty, and the process “launders” the money to make it look clean.’
Trump might also want to quit bringing up his attorney general and calling on him to charges others with crimes. After all, a perjury charge seems to be coming very close in Jeff Sessions’ future.
Twitter reacted in full force to Trump’s insane Twitter rant.
