The liberal outrage is hilarious!
I would say the meeting between Trump and Putin went as expected. Unlike the media, who set their expectations away from reality, Trump reiterated the same points again, disappointing liberals who were hoping to see Trump make a spectacle in front of cameras.
Trump wants a strong economic and political relationship with Russia. It makes sense when you consider that Russia would be a great market for US goods, especially agricultural products.
Does that mean Putin is a good guy? No, but that isn’t the point here. The media and the liberals are still stinging from the 2016 election and need someone other than their failed candidate, who also is struggling to accept the election results as failures of her own candidacy, to take the blame.
It is no secret that the Russians have been using cyber operations against the US for many years to steal secrets and to influence political power. The fact that the Democrats and Hillary hired less than stellar IT people, unlike Wasserman-Schulz who hired actual terrorists to manage her systems, it’s no wonder they need to blame others for their poor decisions.
You know, bad decisions like not visiting Wisconsin during the entire 2016 election cycle and hoping the chronic unemployed voters of Detroit and Flint were going to want another four years of the same problems.
What has come out from the Mueller indictments and Congressional Committees is that there is no evidence that vote counts were manipulated. Despite millions of dollars funding investigations on several fronts there has yet to be a single instance presented where a Russian facebook group caused a zombie like reaction that switched on November 8 and forced a die-hard Clinton supporter to pick Trump.
Hardening lines have been happening since Obama became president in 2009, so it’s hard to believe the shrinking group independents would have been influenced by a false clever meme than say, you know, having to work two bad part-time jobs with no prospects for better opportunities. Even at a 2016 NPR sponsored forum, President Obama said that manufacturing jobs were never coming back and that we had to get used to it.
President Trump did exactly as I expected and that was to not play into the fear mongering of the leftist media nor fall into their traps. The Russians undoubtedly tried to influence the election. Putin’s rejection of the charges was not unexpected. Yet, without real numbers of the extent of the influence, liberals need a scapegoat other than Hillary. In short, they can’t believe no one would buy their message.
Trump supporters won’t buy into media narratives that continually get worse by the minute. Delivering on his campaign promises to help Americans and to implement conservative principles has far more weight to the average voter than liberal whining on cable news shows with little integrity. Social media is blowing up, but when you have a job that doesn’t involve twitter, do you really care?
Besides, Trump is right. Obama did nothing to stop the Russians. The DNC server was never turned over for a full forensic analysis. The Clinton investigation was never serious because of bias in the system, and Mueller probe has yet to show how Trump’s campaign conspired with the Russians to defeat Hillary.
But, you know, Trump didn’t give Putin the sharp rebuke they wanted. Their butthurt is enormous. Instead, Trump threw alcohol on it. I laughed.
