It was a weekend to behold in terms of watching liberal Trump haters get into their most frantic state yet, hoping for SURE that this whole Russia hoax would actually bring down the president. After the news broke that Michael Flynn had plead guilty to lying to the FBI, indicating that he was now cooperating with the special counsel in the investigation, Trump’s critics thought we were now about to see Robert Mueller’s endgame. That it would turn out that the $5 million he’s spent on this investigation wouldn’t turn out to be a ridiculous waste of money after all.
We can only guess that they are, by now, growing quite disappointed. Because when it was all said and done this weekend, things looked worse for them than ever. And it was encapsulated by a tweet President Trump wrote Friday after Flynn’s “flip” became known to the White House.
“I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI,” he wrote.
Exactly. This is being treated like it’s some shocking news, but it’s nothing more or less than we already knew back in February. It’s Paul Manafort all over again. It was supposed to be some huge thing that Manafort was busted for his work with pro-Putin Ukraine interests…except this was EXACTLY why he was fired from the Trump campaign in the first place. Mueller is busy pinching these Trump associates for their crimes, and that’s fine, but what does ANY of this have to do with the central focus of the investigation?
Oh, but the anti-Trump idiots went even MORE nuts after Trump penned that tweet, claiming that he was somehow admitting to obstruction of justice. They forgot, of course, about one little thing: The fact that former FBI Director James Comey has been lying his ass off since getting fired. Trump made sure to remind the country of that truth on Sunday.
“I never asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn,” Trump said. “Just more Fake News covering another Comey lie!”
And really, that’s the crux of what’s getting Trump’s leftist armchair critics confused. They have simply taken it on faith that Trump is always lying and everyone who is against Trump is always telling the truth. And so when these things happen, they jump to the most damning conclusions and make themselves look like fools in the process. Over and over and over again. They never seem to tire of it!
This case is still going nowhere fast, and it’s still costing the American taxpayers millions of dollars. There’s a lot of entertainment value in watching Trump’s enemies get the rug pulled out from under them, but we’re not sure it’s worth all of this.
