Epic Fap Session: Pin Fiften Clob: cameroncrazy1984: And now he's calling it a hoax. What a moron

I'm very interested to find out one day what exactly Putin had/has on Trump that made him such a servile dog.

It has to be a tape from Epstein's.

Other than farking a child, I can't imagine what it would take to jolt the cultists. And even then...


The QANON types would interpret such a video as proof that the satanic, child molesting Demoncrats have finally perfected deep fake video technology. They would double down in their support for Trump.

I think the reality of why Trump is Putin's biatch is even sadder than the possibility that someone caught in a web of blackmail might develop Stockholm Syndrome for their extortionist. The sad, pathetic truth is that Trump's daddy never displayed any affection for him unless he was conforming to Fred Trumps Authoritarian paradigm. Fred Trump used to intone "you are a King... you are a killer" over and over to Trump when he was an impressionable youth. The only role models he admires are those who conform to the authoritarian paradigm, and who have proved that they are not the craven coward that Trump has always been. Trump envies strongmen who can prove their "virility" with a bodycount, even though he himself is too cowardly to fire employees in person, even though "firing" people was his whole schtick on the Apprentice.

Trump admires Putin, because deep in his sniveling, cowardly, heart Trump knows that his dead father would have approved of Putin in a way that Fred Trump never really approved of Donald Trump as a son.

In Trumps defense ( just typing that I now need a shower) the brief most likely didn't have pictures or any popups so he couldn't possibly be expected to read that.

They say that every paragraph in a briefing for tRUmp has to mention him or his crime family. How will this make tRUmp look. How will this affect his crime holdings or laundering operations. Otherwise he will not read it. Maybe it was too hard to work tRUmp into the American kids being killed. Personally I think that Putin has him in a bag.

Cat Food Sandwiches: fluffy_pope: Former National Security Adviser John Bolton told colleagues he briefed Donald Trump on an intelligence assessment that Russia was secretly offering bounties to the Taliban to kill American troops in Afghanistan in March 2019, much earlier than previously reported.

Thanks for not testifying, Treason Walrus.

At this point, does anyone believe anything Bolton says?


I believe some things he says. I don't believe his reasons for saying them.

50-60 ish comments in to the thread is no time to tell you about my feelings regarding your great headline subby, but let's spend this time we have together anyway.  Hold my hand.

fiddlehead: The narrative is already being spun that the IC wasn't 100% sure of this intel (complete with the Press Sec insisting yesterday that "some people" were concerned about it's legitimacy). That's how they're going to try and get Trump out of this one. "He ignored it because it wasn't solid enough."

If that narrative fails, they will turn to "If it was legitimate and important, why didn't you do more to get Trump's attention?"

Fark this timeline.


This. Like any CEO, he's responsible if something is good. And not responsible if it isn't.

And this is why you don't elect people who get their money from an adverse country and shady sources. That part was public before the election, if a million other reasons didn't disqualify him. Here is to hoping they actually charge him after he's president.

You're not wrong, but I think the financial aspect is bigger.  If the Russians call in their debts, Trump will be bankrupt.  He will lose his palace in the sky at Trump Tower in NY.  He will lose Mar A Lago.  He will lose his other golf courses.  He will lose the trappings of being a rich successful businessman, and that persona is *everything* to him.  The Russians bailed him out when all other lenders stopped dealing with him, but now he is utterly dependent on their largesse.

Yep.  Bolton is a schmuck, a warhawk, and HATE the leadership of Iran with the power of 1000 suns.  I personally cannot stand the war walrus.  but, to give the man his due, he doesn't have a verifiable history of being a massive lier.  Unlike Trump.

It'll work for Trumpers, who are ghastly. But for everyone else? This is visceral.

I wonder what Putin will do once he decides Trump is no longer useful.

JohnBigBootay: OK, well, let's say he did not know about it. He knows about it now. What is the response?


Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Fake newz! (et al.)

money laundering, most likely. no one would do business with Trump, then suddenly a fountain of cash appears out of Russia. If proven, our (real) government would seize his assets and everything he 'worked' for would evaporate, including his imagined legacy.

Is anyone still keeping a record of all the lies or do we by now just count his statements and safely assume that every! single! one! is a lie?

It's truly mind-blowing.


I always assume he's lying. It's actually a safe bet.

Ya, but Trump totally divested from all his financial ties to the Trump organization, so...

BWAHAHAHA...  Sorry, couldn't get through it without laughing.


I forgot. Here's proof, so it must be true

It will just be called fake, but a clever forgery manufactured by Russia.  Imma bet too that they have the dirt on a lot more than Trump with his little dick in a kid.

The WP fact checker still keeps a running total. As of May 29th, 2020 he was at 19,127 lies while in office.

You know what? I don't give a DAMN whether Trump knew or not. This issue is a distraction meant to divert people's anger from the deeper issues of this situation. Because either way this episode shows severe dysfunctions in this sham of a government which are very telling.

IF HE KNEW- then the corruption and rot go all the way to the top.

IF HE DID NOT KNOW- then he has shown himself incapable of running a unified and focused government. Instead he is running a government which is full of people operating in the shadows and carrying out their own political agendas without his knowledge.

Either scenario is utterly dreadful. And he thinks that he can somehow redeem himself by telling us he didn't know?

He has dumped yet another goddamned incompetent load of crap on America and the world, and needs to go NOW.
