Haven’t people learned that defending Trump is a huge fail and only leaves you looking like a dumb ass? The embarrassment clearly isn’t enough for people to get it.
The latest ignorant people are four top Republicans taking a hand at justifying Trump’s collusion with Russia in the 2016 elections. First up we have Fox New’s, Sean Hannity. Last Friday during his show the host questioned if collusion was really a serious matter
“I never understood it anyway. What was the collusion? That maybe somebody in the Trump campaign talked to somebody in Russia because Russia supposedly had the information that Hillary Clinton had destroyed on her server when she committed a felony and tried to cover up her crimes?
Then here come’s Fox’s Greg Jarrett who said there’s nothing wrong with collusion. It’s perfectly fine to collude.
“You can collude all you want with a foreign government in an election. There is no such statute. Collusion is not a crime, only an antitrust law.
Back in early May of this year, Geraldo Rivera, couldn’t understand the issue with Trump’s collusion either during his Fox segment. In fact, he wasn’t even sure if it was illegal.
“If the Russian KGB chief is talking to Paul, what’s the crime?
Wait, there’s more. Last but not least, Brit Hume just recently said that collusion isn’t in no way shape or form a crime. Even though it’s a bad thing.
“Can anybody identify the crime? Collusion, while it would be obviously alarming and highly inappropriate for the Trump campaign, of which there is no evidence by the way, of colluding with the Russians. It’s not a crime.”
Can we all point out the common denominator here? These people are all Fox News affiliates. We know how Trump praises the media company for being one of the only ones who give true news. Well, Mr.President telling the world that collusion isn’t a crime is FAKE NEWS. It’s a lie.
According to election law specialist, John Coates
“It is a federal crime to conspire with anyone, including a foreign government, to ‘deprive another of the intangible right of honest services. That would include fixing a fraudulent election.
Just like Democratic Senator Al Green said, Donald Trump is not above the law. So what if he is rich and white and he gave you folks over at Fox News some attention. Trump committed a crime and needs to pay.
