They just make stuff up. Treason by Trump, anti Semitism among Trump supporters, anything at all to bash Trump. You can expect another 4 year continuation of the campaign media distortions and fabrications witnessed during the run-up to the presidential election.
They can’t help it. They have to strike back against their humiliating defeat. The “tolerant” left is anything but. They really believe their own propaganda and if you don’t you’re a racist.
So prepare for four years of twisted reality from the small minded intolerant left represented by the New York Times, Washington Post, etal.
Democrats already accusing Trump of “treason” a month before he takes office
From Hot Air: DECEMBER 18, 2016 BY JAZZ SHAW
This weekend you can catch a preview of what the next four years of mainstream media coverage of the Trump presidency will look like by checking in at the Boston Globe. They’ve decided to run an op-ed piece penned by John Shattuck, a professor at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. Clearly not wanting to pull any punches or inject a level of nuance into the discussion, the title blares out at us, Donald Trump raises specter of treason.
Yes, you read that correctly. It’s still more than a month before the PEOTUS will be sworn in and we’ve already got someone bringing up the word “treason” and tying it to his name. Now, some of you might correctly point out that newspaper editors frequently write the titles which appear above guest columns, so perhaps Mr. Shattuck wasn’t actually engaging in such hyperbole himself. Let’s check out his opening paragraph to get a sense of where the author is really going here.
- A specter of treason hovers over Donald Trump. He has brought it on himself by dismissing a bipartisan call for an investigation of Russia’s hacking of the Democratic National Committee as a “ridiculous” political attack on the legitimacy of his election as president.
No, it doesn’t appear that this was manipulation on the part of the Globe. Shattuck fires of the “treason” charge only four words into the article. And the basis for this suggestion rests entirely on the fact that Trump took issue with the conclusion drawn by some in the intelligence community that the Russians hacked the DNC’s email accounts to help him win. To support this theory, Shattuck offers four “possible” explanations for why the President Elect would take this position. They can be summed up as follows:
1. He’s trying to “shore up” his political position in advance of the Electoral College vote on Monday
2. He wants to “undermine the credibility of US intelligence agencies”
3. He’s “testing his ability to go over the heads of intelligence professionals”
4. He’s trying to “cover up evidence of involvement or prior knowledge … in the Russian cyberattack“
It’s easy enough to point out that the first three are rampant speculation, but the fourth one is the real doozy. Does Shattuck offer any sort of evidence to support the idea that Trump had “involvement or prior knowledge” of the hacking? That’s apparently a bridge too far even for the author. You have to dig well down into the article to find this grudging admission.
- There is no direct evidence that the president-elect was involved or knew in advance about the Russian government’s actions. But the circumstances underscore the nation’s need for a full investigation.
Oh… so there’s no evidence. But you’ll just fire off an editorial in the Boston Globe suggesting it anyway, eh? What’s truly disappointing is the fact that Shattuck leaves off of his list the fifth and most obvious suggestion. Have you considered the possibility that Donald Trump actually is Vladimir Putin? Have you? I mean, have you ever seen the two of them in the same room at the same time? And even if you have, one of them could have been a body double.
