Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Garrett M. Graff: The Mueller report outlines a portrait of a man completely unsuitable as the protector of the Constitution and arbiter of national security, a leader wholly unable to separate the good of our country from his own business interests, so lacking a moral compass that he would be unfit to lead a publicly traded company or possess a low-level government security clearance.

And this is the fault of mainstream media..corporate owned conglomerates/multinationals whose only concern is to focus public opinion in a way that increases the probability that they'll elect specific candidates.
our schools don't teach while the evangelicals preach and the politicians leach

So you are admitting that the DNC/media screwed Bernie while they were all in for Hillary. Nice to see you come around.

Partisan hate does nothing but make the speaker look stupid. Trump wanted money from Russia by way of his business, not politics. Russia wanted to give him money for his business. They did shady stuff to try to get that business to work. Hell, I've done shady stuff to get money. Most people I know have. You have problems if you can't see how easy this is all to understand if you just get rid of your hate for the man. Look at it objectively and you will see a more plausible truth that DOESN'T take tax money and a long, biased investigation to confirm. He is an idiot, for sure. He is shady, yep. But to think he is an idiot by claiming he didn't know that Russia wanted his business makes you a useful propaganda idiot.

Is this supposed to be satirical?

It's probably not supposed to be.

He's kind of an idiot savant when it comes to that.

PAW...it's the whole system, top to bottom. everything in this country is judged using a monetary scale. I constantly rale against Citizens United...i remember when it was passed and dems were against it..they were asked later if they'd not utilize the decision since they'd campaigned against it "well that would put us at a severe disadvantage so we'll probably use it too". are you trying to justify your support for trump by showing that clinton didn't cut bernie any slack? was what she did illegal..was this your justification for supporting trump?

Actually I think it is spoken by someone with questionable Integrity.

I realize most if not all people running for President have questionable integrity but when you have someone like Trump who flaunts his complete lack of integrity, screws his base (along with everyone else) and still has a cult like following from 30ish percent of this country? Mind blown.

When I hear Trump supporters spouting completely wrong BS I just want to shake them in order to wake them from their delusion. Their reality is not the same one I see all around me - that is for sure.

The orange sloth is so incompetent that he cannot be charged with obstruction of justice, even though he spent the last two years dedicated to that task.

Trump found out he was getting illegal help from the Russians.

Trump didn't report the illegal activity.

Trump instead accepted the help and encouraged them.

How are you okay with this?

How many times to they have to tell you?? They are OK with whatever Trump does as long as he doesn't ever ever admit that Democrats are Americans, and part of his constituency and responsibly now, too.

Trump could shoot someone on the street or lock kids in cages or turn his head while his friends and business partners hacked up journalists or undermine our elections for fun and profit.

THEY DO NOT CARE.

But not a portrait of a man who was colluding with Russia. Which was the entire point of the report.

Not for lack of trying.

He wasn't trying. He didn't want to win.

"He wasn't trying."

You're joking, right? Everyone around him was involved, and the guy who always controlled everything didn't have a clue?

How gullible are you?

They were trying to leverage their position to make money, like every other politician in the history of the known universe.

Who wanted to win? Bannon. Where's he been? Why?

"They were trying to leverage their position to make money"

That suggests they'd do anything, including accepting in-kind contributions from a hostile foreign power.

Why, it's almost like when offered, Junior responded "I love it!"

Wired, sowing division and doing the Russian heavy lifting for them.
