Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

So, why can't we, the citizens of Florida, know which counties were hacked and I simply do't believe that if they got hacked the hackers wouldn't have manipulated the data.

I can't see why Putin would lie about this.

Trump has done everything in his power to deny and ignore Russian election interference since he was made aware of it.

Tell us, Trumphluffers, why that would be.

Trump has ignored, resisted and refused to secure the 2020 election from Russian interference.

Tell us, Trumphluffers, why that would be.

The irony is that until this moment, DeSantis was in total agreement with Trump that there had been NO meddling in the elections.

Florida is vital to our democracy. The only answer is sterilization. I'm asking for nuclear release.

Make fun all you want Republicans but today a growing number of Americans realize that your only path to power is through Russia. Are your leaders compromised by that fact? You would say no but the rest of us say it is obviously so. Republicans cannot win nationwide elections legitimately, they are compromised by Russia and Saudi Arabia. We are not a democracy until we fix this, and that will require paper ballots, computer voting today is just a method to steal elections and most of us already know it and the rest of us are figuring it out pretty fast. I would hate to be Donald Trump in a nation that knows he is an illigitimate President. I would hate to be a President that the nation knows is owned by the Russians.

"Thanks Obama!"

OK, so Andrea is admitting that Trump is an illigitimate President but just wants to blame Obama for it. That's ok, I'm sure Obama did as much as he could to prevent it but it's nice to know that Andrea acknowledges that cheating is how Trump won, how DeSantis won, and how Republicans win elections. And I will grant her the fact, Democrats have not done enough to prevent this, we should have shut down the government and not allowed a budget to pass until wehad real reforms about elections. Nothing is more important and Democrats should prevent any bill from passing until we have real reforms.

If they announced which counties they know were hacked, then Russia knows which ones we don't know were hacked. They can use that information to improve their techniques.

I love it, Dems automatically think the Russians hacked in favor of Trump.

It's because the Dems lost. if Hillary would have won they would be calling DeSantis a filthy liar

Maverick's best defense is the Democrats are corrupt as Republicans are.

No, not by a long shot. When there's evidence Dems, including their President, encouraged Russian meddling in our election and repeatedly tried to cover for it, then you'd have a point.

So take your apples to oranges Whattaboutism and cram it.

Look at our policies towards Venezuela and then towards Russia. Anyone see the contradiction and hypocrisy?

Sure Comrade. But a Full Release will be much more satisfying.

And why are you asking for anything!?

This is all Hoax according to you and your handlers.

Exactly. The whole "Russia thing" was a big hoax for the past two years. Now it's not so much hoaxy as it is no-collusiony (which I still ain't buying, sorry) and please-stop-talking-about-ity.

Before Russia was even thought of, homeland security was hacking States. Just google it. States complained that HS was hacking. Seems like HS helped Russia.

If she had read your entire post, instead of just the first sentence, the sarcasm was pretty evident.

And yes, your personal politics should be well known to anybody who pays attention.

Say that Russia hacked voting booths, the smart thing to do would be to hack several, change some votes to Dem and others to Repub - but enough to Repub to win. Then, make it obvious the Dem votes were changed, but skillfully hide the Repub. So, when it comes out there was hacking it appears to be in Dem favor. At least that is what a smart person would do.
