TRUMP: His Russian allies

| December 30, 2020 1:00 AM

I am appalled but not surprised to hear that Donald Trump has sided with Russia again against the United States on the latest cyber attack. He has repeatedly given Putin and his cronies a pass for reasons I can only imagine.

Have you got the obvious point yet, folks? Donald Trump doesn’t give a rip about us, our constitution, our laws or our health. You need to stop calling everyone who is not a Republican a socialist. Quit listening to and idolizing this narcissistic, misogynistic, immoral, dishonest, crotch grabbing, lying traitor who has occupied the White House for four years.

Secondly, why does everyone who has gotten on the Trump bandwagon need a pardon? Presidential pardons were intended to right legal wrongs not give your partners in crime a pass. I know that justice is an elusive beast in these days of overt partisan politics but I believe that the people in the justice department were honest and diligent before this crazy administration.

Hunter Biden’s purported antics pale by comparison to this president who brought his broadly unqualified family to the White House to run our country into the ground.

I don’t know if there is any foundation to the current administration’s fixation with Hunter but I trust that the justice system will not be impeded in fleshing out his innocence or guilt.

I guess when it comes to the Trump administration, the old adage that if you lie down with dogs you are going to get fleas applies here.
