Republicans: All this denial just means that the English really did do it, as part of some nefarious complex conspiracy to...stop a failed real estate broker from becoming US president.  For reasons.

The Kremlin has denied that it meddled with the US elections.

Republicans:  Well, they have an awful lot to gain from it, both in direct business connections with Trump and his administration and politically, but I have a good feeling about that Putin fella. Sounds legit to me!

Of course Russia was, but how do you convince people whose only 'news' comes from either RT or Breitbart? Both are clearly instruments of Russian propaganda.

RT's plan here is brilliant: they started pitching themselves to the "alt-right", giving stories that gave "proof" of the evil of the Obama administration that Infowars or Breitbart or one of those sites could use.  Of course, the larger goal was to undermine the moral authority of the United States to criticize the actions of any other nations, so it's broadly anti-American.  But idiots reading Infowars (I know, that's redundant) just liked seeing something showing how evil Obama is.

So apparently our intelligence agencies are so involved with Barry Soetoro's and Soros's Deep State that we have to rely upon Russian intelligence to learn about this blatant attempt by our previous "president" to undermine our great leader's efforts to Make Us Great Again.

If I asked anyone 2 years ago if they were ok with Russia getting involved in the governing of our nation or the election of our officials, I would have heard that only Liberals and Commies and Socialists would like this idea. It is truly ironic that those same people are now championing the Russians simply because their team won.

Guess I should have mentioned...that image is a stencil I designed...you can download it, cut it out, and use it to make shirts, stickers, etc. If all that scares you but you still want a shirt, there's a Threadless shop too...but TBH I'd rather you make your own DIY style.

I talked with some Britons at a conference last week and they are not happy about being accused of spying, especially in such a ridiculous way.  It's not funny anymore.

I'm actually quite glad it's happened, because you can't fark your international allies about like that. You have to be a grown up where they're concerned. Your hand selected lapdog local colleagues might let you get away with wil accusations but we're not going to be so indulgent. Bringing Britain into it means there might actually be some resolution.

Wow. You can almost taste the bubble and squeak just looking at that pic.

/"A black pudding so black even the white bits were black".
//Possibly obscure?

So it turns out that the BS Trump was spewing about Obama bugging his phone at Trump tower was just him repeating Russian propaganda put out by RT and repeated by RW jackholes on TV and radio in the US?

And now he's pissing off not just the entire US intelligence service but other nation's intel groups as well?

Huh, I'm guessing this doesn't end well for Hair Trumpenfuror.

It's not 2007 anymore.  Even if the so called "MSM" ever gets its shiat together, Trumpers get their news from Fox and Facebook.


There's no doors out of the disinformation bubble.

Yeah, but those were funny idiots that understood that the person in charge had to be smarter than they are.

The reality is that is that the US is run by dangerously sniveling idiots that believe they are smarter than everyone else, and will gut anyone that says otherwise.
