The reality is, Russian interference into our elections is not about Trump. Whether it benefited Trump or not (and it almost certainly did) is not the point. It needs to be stopped, and the Commander in Chief should be responsible for stopping it.
Trump hasn't done or shown any ability (or desire) to stop a foreign government from interfering in our elections going forward. He's either shit at his job, or uninterested in doing it.
Donald Trump pledged to give $1 million to Hurricane Harvey relief. But will that come from his own personal finances, or from a charity in his name that he hasn't given any money to in nearly a decade? Trump has already lied about giving money to veterans groups and children fighting cancer in the past --- could he really be lying to the entire country about giving money to Hurricane Harvey relief?
Russians interfering with our election, no matter what side they're on, can't be allowed. It doesn’t matter if it helped Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders or Harambe the fucking Gorilla. It's third world bull shit. It needs to be stopped. Russia can’t be allowed to interfere with U.S. elections. That’s an act of war.
So while Mueller (and presumably, the FBI and CIA) handle that in advance of the 2018 midterms (with or without the President's help), the next question we as American's need to ask is: were any American's willingly involved? 'Cause that's an act of treason.
With just two days to go before the Alabama Special Election, most polls suggest that the Republican candidate Roy Moore will be the newest U.S. Senator. While most would assume this would be a win for the Reds and a loss for the blues, we argue that no matter what happens in Alabama on Tuesday, the Democrats will come out the winners.
Trump will defend you in the face of domestic abuse, child molestation, or crimes against the United States government. Because in his mind, it is Trump vs Everyone, and if you’re stupid enough to be on his side, then going to bat for you is more important than any basic human principles.
In the past week, Trump continued to give white supremacists exactly what they wanted, he pledged to send more Americans to Afghanistan to die, he told transgender Americans they can no longer volunteer to fight for their country, and he pardoned a racist disgraced sheriff who was voted out of office by his own constituents and bragged about breaking the law. At what point can we openly say that Trump's actions are those of a man motivated by evil?
