These rallies, man. They never should have stopped. Trump should have been doing these at least once a week this whole time. It not only keeps him connected to us, but it seems to keep him grounded.
Here’s from The Hill:
President Trump on Thursday waved off concerns about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intentions as he prepares to meet with his Russian counterpart in Finland later this month.
Speaking at a campaign-style rally in Montana, Trump attacked critics who have questioned his preparedness for the July 16 summit with Putin and made light of Putin’s past as a top-ranking intelligence official.
“They’re going ‘Will President Trump be prepared, you know, President Putin is KGB and this and that,’” Trump said. “You know what? Putin’s fine. He’s fine. We’re all fine. We’re people. Will I be prepared? Totally prepared. I’ve been preparing for this stuff my whole life.“
The American president on Thursday rebuffed critics, who have expressed concern over his ambitions to form bonds with authoritarian leaders, like Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping. He said that “getting along” with such countries “is a good thing.”
“Getting along…with Russia and getting along with China and getting along with other countries is a good thing,” he said. “It’s not a bad thing. It’s a good thing.”
I think we might just get a joint statement that there is no evidence for the kookpspiracy that Putin interfered in the elections.
Maybe that’s asking for too much, I don’t know.
But I think it’s time.
Everyone knows it’s a hoax, Trump has always known it was a hoax, and it is a vicious hoax. The point of the hoax is to imply that Trump was not elected by the people, but is only President because of a Russian conspiracy.
People should remember this clip. It should get more play than it does.
The MSM claimed that it was impossible for an election to be rigged, then all of the sudden it was impossible for it not to have been rigged.
The conclusion that Hillary couldn’t have lost because she was humanity’s destiny was the starting assumption, and the Russian stuff is all just there to justify the conclusion.
And Trump should have been stronger against it. He should have never given an inch. Instead he said maybe Russia did Wikileaks. That was after it could have been a 400 pound guy in his bed (which is true – there is no reason to believe the DNC leaks let alone the Podesta phishing email were done by a state entity).
We’re not really talking about Wikileaks anymore, we’re talking about Facebook memes and porn stars. Or whatever. There is some new thing, I can’t think of what it is.
Anyway, the Mueller thing has reached the end of the line, and a joint press conference with Trump and Putin where Trump says definitively that “Russian hacking” is a conspiracy theory hoax would be in order right now.
Something like: “We’ve talked about it a lot, and I believe that if any Russians posted things on Facebook, it was without the knowledge of Putin and his government, and that isn’t against the law anyway. After speaking with the President, I am even more convinced than I was – and I was already convinced – that the entire Russian conspiracy was a hoax designed by the Democrats to explain their horrible performance in the 2016 election.”
