It’s bad enough what Donald Trump is doing to the country, the Constitution and the American People. It’s compounded daily by the MSM’s inability to get ahead of this story. Or grasp it at all.
Not only do they report it from behind, they report it from well behind. They’re the clean up crew scraping elephant shit off the street. Literally.
They still have it in their heads that in some way Donald Trump is a normal president doing normal things. It sounds absurd but our press MUST think that way because they report him that way.
Take today. Lots and lots of good, breathless reporting about the text messages between Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, and Kurt Volker, who was until last month the State Department’s special envoy to Ukraine, to Andriy Yermak, a top aide to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Those texts are as much a smoking gun as Nixon’s WH tapes. In this instance though, the crime goes far beyond a second rate burglary.
This is all about Russia and sanctions and Vladimir Putin’s hold not only on Trump but the entire Republican Party. It’s all about Trump being a traitor. That word gets used every day now. We all know it’s not hyperbole.
So – as MSNBC and CNN get deeper into this story and its implications, they put on the table a Donald Trump who clearly, unequivocally has betrayed his oath of office. But then – having finished reporting THAT story, they turn to election 2020 – and what Trump is doing as a candidate for the presidency as if the previous story never existed.
It’s bizarre. One breath – Trump has betrayed the country and the Constitution so extravagantly that we’ve just devoted HOURS to report it to you, BUT, next breath – they’re treating Trump like he was just a guy running for office with all those “guy running for office” problems. Suddenly, being a traitor isn’t one of them.
How the hell can that be? Did Trump STOP betraying us all just because the MSM changed story topics? Of course not! Trump travels with all that baggage permanently attached to him. It’s the 900 pound gorilla that though you insist you can’t see is still stinking up the joint.
Voldemort doesn’t stop being Voldemort just because he stops being rotten for two seconds to pay the mortgage.
Bond Villains don’t stop being Bond Villains because occasionally they need to move their bowels.
Vladimir Putin doesn’t stop wanting to undermine America just because he makes a joke about it.
Donald Trump doesn’t stop being a traitor just because he says he isn’t – or the Main Stream News Media goes to commercial break.
