This week the right-wing media mob became fixated on flogging yet another baseless pseudo-scandal involving former senator and Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. It’s rather impressive how, after thirty years, Clinton still manages to send tingles up the spongy spines of the Deplorable press.

The subject of this wholly contrived non-controversy was a report concerning the testimony of Clinton’s former campaign manager, Robby Mook in a show trial led by special clown-sel, John Durham. Most of the reporting parroted the same deliberate distortions that Fox News disseminated in their predictably biased coverage.

On Sunday Fox News followed up their story with a response from Donald Trump. But first they had to reiterate the falsehoods that they dispensed in the original report. In the opening sentence Fox stated that “Hillary Clinton herself approved the dissemination of false information.” Which is utterly untrue and not supported by their own article.
The campaign did not regard the information as false. In fact, it was deemed credible at the time by multiple sources. And they disseminated it to a reporter who they expected would conduct a more in depth investigation. That’s actually the responsible course of action. Nevertheless, Fox News sought a response from Trump who could only be relied on to muddy the matter further. Which he did…
“‘This is one of the greatest political scandals in history,’ Trump told Fox News Saturday morning. ‘For three years, I had to fight her off, and fight those crooked people off, and you’ll never get your reputation fully back. Where do I get my reputation back?’ Trump said again. ‘I had to fight them off,’ Trump said. ‘And if we had real leadership, instead of people like Mitch McConnell, they would do something about it. And guys like Bill Barr. They would have done something about it.’ [and that it] distracted officials from what ‘could have been a real danger with Russia.'”
Trump is right about this being “one of the greatest political scandals in history.” Just not the one in his delusional mind. The fact that he and his campaign corroborated so often with Russia is unprecedented. And his complaints that rabidly partisan players like McConnell and Barr weren’t sufficiently corrupt for his purposes only makes him look even more guilty.
However, what stands out in this tirade is Trump’s pleading that he get his reputation back. Really? He wants to restore a reputation best known for dishonesty, corruption, hostility, malignant narcissism, and jaw-dropping ignorance? He wants to refresh the public’s impression of him as the ultimate loser and recidivist failure? Okay, fine. Let him have it.
As for Fox News, their reputation isn’t any better. The same article brazenly lied about Trump’s unsavory connections to Russia, and his infatuation with Vladimir Putin, saying that…
“After nearly two years, Mueller’s investigation yielded no evidence of criminal conspiracy or coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during the 2016 presidential election.”
After three years Fox News is still peddling the falsehood that Mueller found no evidence of Trump colluding with Russia or violating the law. To the contrary, in his Senate testimony Mueller explicitly told the House Judiciary Committee Chairman, Jerry Nadler, that Trump was not, as he repeatedly lied, “totally exonerated.” And in another exchange with Rep. Adam Schiff, Mueller confirmed that “Trump and his campaign welcomed and encouraged Russian interference [and] lied about it to cover it up.”

So if that’s the reputation that Trump wants back, he’s more than welcome to it. In fact, he never lost it to begin with. After all, he worked so hard to slather it with sleaze and drench it in disgrace that it would be a shame to let that go to waste. And it’s rather humorous that Trump thinks his reputation was taken from him. Because. seriously, who else would want it?

Like i have been saying for the past 5 years, everything that comes out of that SOB’s mouth is a blatant, outright, lie… he lies and backs them up with more lies.. I keep hoping and hoping a massive heart attack takes this sorry bastard down. Right now, it doesn’t look like that is going to happen. The son of a bitch should be looking into a mirror when he is spouting his millions of lies because he would then be talking to himself when he lies and does the horrible things he accuses Dems of doing. Everything he accuses others are doing, in fact are the horrible things he has been doing for all of his miserable, useless life. TUMP is a freak of nature that we should hope that never happens again. He is sub-human and a monster that needs to be destroyed as soon as possible………. He yells his reputation has been destroyed, i wonder out loud who in the hell would want to have a reputation of an evil, psychopathic, criminal he has all of his miserable, useless, life? No one, that i know of……….
I have wondered why a heart attack hasn’t taken him down already. He refuses to stop those ridiculous rallies state to state across the United States. Parties at Mir-a-Lago. And, am I missing something? In terrible physical shape.
Yes, that asshat TUMP is in terrible physical shape, and i hear from various news reports that he consumes several of those super greasy Big Macs from McDonalds several times a week. I had an ex-brother-in-law that eat almost the same as TUMP and he died at the age of 56 years old. Too bad TUMP didn’t go at that age, we would all be better off if he had. Other than Adolf Hitler, i know of no other person that has caused so much death and destruction as TUMP has. I keep thinking of what a narrator on a program on TV i have watched frequently said, ”Here is the definitive guide to the most hated man in history, Adolf Hitler.” In my opinion, Donald TUMP should have the designation of a close second place to Hitler. Evil, hate, division, death and destruction is what TUMP and Hitler preached.. I HATE both of them with every fiber in my body.
