Ever heard of an honest politician? Interesting times are these. If you believe the MSM spin, honest politicians are the norm! Meddling in a democratic election process,? Gasp! Horror! Surely not!
Take the current situation with the media reporting on the Trump Junior scandal. Oh, he should have gone straight to the FBI with the juicy tidbits he allegedly learned from the Russians. Does anyone seriously think any other politician would have done so, especially in the pre-election dirty tricks frenzy?
So now it’s all over the news and if you believe those MSM stories, Trump Senior has locked himself away and is cowering behind the sofa while peeking at the TV news like a kid watching a horror movie (and this is a man who regards the MSM as mostly fake news) while his empire crumbles around him. Contrast this with Trump’s own calm assessment that the White House is “business as usual”, and the man himself says “I’m too busy to watch TV”.
Which scenario do you seriously believe?
Getting back to Donald Trump Junior: Again, have we all developed amnesia and forgotten the long sad history of crooked politicians and the games they play? Does anyone remember what a diversion is?
My personal opinion is that the biggest mistake Junior made was in his declared openness and transparency about the whole thing. Take an open transparent approach and the they’ll chew you up and spit you out. And like Senior says, many others would have Taken that meeting.
Welcome to the world of politics son, it’s a dirty business.
Meanwhile, I’m curious to see how Mister Kushner emerges from this situation.
