The best line from the movie Philadelphia is when Denzel Washington’s character asks a potential client to explain his reasoning for a lawsuit like he’s a six-year-old.
So help me out. Explain it to me like I’m a six-year-old.
How come I have heard about nothing but Hilary Clinton’s emails for the past four years, but now that there are daily reports of ethics violations, conspiracy and abuse of power by the person who is actually in the White House, I’m being told that it’s all “fake news,”“the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!” and just a scheme to obstruct Trumps virtuous agenda.
If we’re going to spend millions of dollars investigating Benghazi and a private email server we can spend a few hundred thousand to investigate how involved the Trump campaign was with Russia’s tampering of our election.
If there’s nothing there, fine. But with as many people who have resigned, been fired or recused themselves from investigations I find it highly damn unlikely.
And why is it that people who don’t trust the media and say they have their own agenda blindly follow someone like Trump?
I mean, sure the media have their own agenda. Everyone has an agenda. But just because one group has a goal they’re trying to achieve doesn’t mean another group doesn’t. People need to realize that things aren’t just black and white. There’s an awful lot of gray in this world.
Think about it for a minute. What makes more sense: That all news organizations (aside from Breitbart and Fox News), the Deep State, Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton are part of a massive underground conspiratorial smear campaign against President Trump,
or that Trump is just an asshole?
I know which seems more credible to me.
Now, I’m not saying he’s guilty, was personally involved or that we should lock him up, but I think there’s cause for the investigation to go forward. If he’s innocent there’s nothing to worry about, but if not I sure hope there are some dire consequences.
As he said, “Do we have a country, or do we not have a country?” If the United States is willing to allow a foreign country to meddle in our election; well, we don’t have a country anymore.
