One day after receiving damning intelligence reports of direct and intentional espionage against the United States, Cheeto Jesus called for closer relations with Russia and that those who opposed are “stupid” and “fools”. When Putin hands His Orangeness his own ass on a platter, we’ll know both the fool and the stupid.
Cornered by the press this morning, Cheeto Jesus engaged in word salad about the Russian hacking during the election, but the most shocking thing is that when asked about Lindsey Graham calling for strong sanctions against Russia, he said, “We should get on with our lives.” WHAT? “…get on with our lives”? If anyone needed convincing that he is nothing but a puppet for Russia, this should change your mind. Whether the election was affected or not, Russian hackers, at the direction of Vladimir Putin, TRIED to affect the result of the election. And CJ just says to “get on with our lives”? That’s just like GWB calling for Americans to go shopping after 9/11. Jesus. I really mean Jesus. Here’s more stupid things he blathered:
“I think that computers have complicated lives very greatly. The whole age of computer has made it where nobody knows exactly what’s going on.” We have speed. We have a lot of other things but I’m not sure you have the kind of security that you need. But I have not spoken with the senators and I certainly will be over a period of time.”
Have you noticed that whenever CJ doesn’t have the slightest clue what he’s talking about he always says, “…nobody knows what’s going on.”? Apparently he doesn’t “know what’s going on”, but we can be sure that intelligence and military officers certainly do. So do all Americans who are normal. He just doesn’t like the answer that will piss off his patron.
He’s already out of control and not even in office yet. I dread the next 4 years.
I just don’t find this to be real comforting.
Yeah, this is in Russia.
They didn’t get his ducktail combover exactly right and the skin color is a little pale, but it’s him.
Thanks to Bob for the heads up.
Ya think we’ve had enough violence today?
Is it just my overflow of cynicism that suspects Russia had something to do with the death of their own ambassador in order to continue the destabilization of Turkey? I mean, they’d like nothing better than to test NATO in Turkey. Yeah, it’s probably just me.
“There is not just smoke here. There is a blazing 10-alarm fire, the sirens are wailing, the Russians provided the lighter fluid, and Trump is standing half-burnt and holding a match.
Glenn Carle, retired CIA officer and interrogator.
And you can quote me on that.
Insiders at Politico are reporting this morning that the Tillerson nomination is already in serious trouble mainly due to his ties with Vladimir Putin as we discussed this weekend. Marco Rubio is apparently begging the Cheeto transition team for another body, and bipartisan resistance to the nomination is rising. It seems that all this attention on CJ’s ties (and other members of the inner circle’s) ties to the Russian despot is finally starting to get traction. McCain has even issued a statement questioning the wisdom of this nomination.
I know, I know, let’s not get our hopes up.
