    The Times ‘exposé’ on Donald Trump Jr. is a big yawn



    Having established the smear of “collusion,” the Times must now link every story with the word “Russia” to it in the hopes that the rubes and suckers won’t stop believing that Trump somehow cheated his way into the White House.

    Hasn’t the Times learned its lesson from its disastrous Feb. 14 story, also anonymously sourced, about the Trump campaign’s “repeated contacts with Russian intelligence?” In his congressional testimony last month, former FBI director James Comey said: “In the main, it was not true.”

    But then, so are the other “collusion” stories the left is trying to peddle as proof of some sinister plot to subvert democracy. And all because they refuse to accept the results of the 2016 election. As the president might say: Sad!
    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    Jr says he met with the Russian lawyer to get information to help the Trump campaign but was disappointed she didn't have anything meaningful......
    "Anonymous sources say...."

    Clearly bull####. If it weren't, there would be names. NYT and WashPo - do they even have any sources? Every story it's some figment of their imagination telling them stuff.

    No, because their readers are psychos who want to believe. It's like a Scientology newsletter - it's not meant for you or me, only for the faithful.

    As long as the "Trump cheated!" story persists - and all the versions that will follow - as long as it never gains any traction, it can only serve to blind Democrats as to why their candidate lost last November. They refuse to believe they lost on rational, reasonable grounds. They continue the belief that they were robbed, that Hillary was superior and the only reason Trump won was that the country, after electing a black President twice, suddenly became unconscionably racist and vile and elected a tyrant.

    I've had this conversation in various forms over the past MANY years - if you lose a game/an election/a job/a beauty contest - to a *turd* - that says more about YOU than about your opponent or god help you, the people calling the decisions. So - you can blame the judges/voters/refs/interviewers but - you lost.

    When you lose a beauty contest to a turd, you NEED to check the mirror, not the ballots.

    What does this prove?
    maybe because he denied having met with the Russians, then said they only met to talk about adoption, then came out and admitted the purpose of the meeting was for the campaign to gain usable information from the Russians for use against his opponent in the election.

    are you calling DJT jr an unnamed source?

    Jr. admitted that he and the campaign were baited by the possibility of working with the Russians.

    And the response I had was - this was a SITTING Vice-President to an otherwise popular President
    - it SHOULD have been a slam dunk. He SHOULD have been able to win *easily*. No razor-thin photo-finishes.
    If you really bought into how superior Gore was to Bush - then why couldn't Gore even win HIS OWN HOME STATE?

    You know, sometimes a football game comes down to a single field goal attempt - and if that guy misses, morons will blame HIM for the loss.
    And I will say hey, they had a whole four quarters of football to beat the other team. You're going to blame the whole game on a few seconds?

    This was a guy who had everything going for him. Well, except Bill Clinton. People simply didn't like the guy.
