IMO, this is part of the psychological warfare game. Nothing Puttie does is accidental, this is meant to show us they are deeply embedded in this administration.

/If they really had that much control they would be quiet about it and wouldn't be trying so hard to convince us otherwise.
//90% sure.

Hey, Trump supporters.  Them Russians and Slovenians took yer jerbs.
 
2020-10-22 11:42:04 PM  
I've got one. Trump's campaign staff have been told to check pro-Trump reddit forums multiple times a day for content and messages they can amplify and use. Brad Parscale has been quoted as saying he checked r/The_Donald every day first thing in the morning. Said forums are likely to be the primary targets of Russian pro-Trump disinformation campaigns. As such, they likely flood them with campaign-style military imagery without giving a f*ck about whether it's American or Russian planes being displayed, knowing Trumpers will never follow up on such things.

Campaign staff sees such an image on the forum, goes "hey, that looks like something we can use!" Voila, Russian military imagery released by Trump campaign staff.

/OK, maybe not a *completely* innocent explanation

Here's some brain bleach.  Tonight we took our Maggie to PetSmart to lick out toys for her brother (he's too anxious yet for the shops).  She's wearing my gay space socialism shirt, and she got a lot of compliments.

She also pooped in front of the first lady who said, "I like your shirt, sweetie!"

In the mid 90s, while America was bragging about having won the Cold War, the remnants of the Russian intelligence services quietly moved the battlefield to the internet, and America has never been able to completely catch up, mainly due to Republicans who bought the original victory lie and don't see Russia as a legitimate threat.

Consequently, white supremacists and Neo-Nazi groups were some of the earliest adopters of the internet. They built a presence on BBS's in the 80s before the World Wide Web was even a thing. So it makes sense that these were some of the first groups they managed to manipulate.

Having grown up in the 90s, the fact that all that hatred spewing shiat was all over the internet was just this weird thing we all accepted. I'm pretty sure the KKK had a functioning website before even Wal-Mart did. I never really thought that would've grown into anything, but here we are.

He intentionally wears oversized clothing to hide the fact that he's massively overweight.

He doesn't dress like an actual rich person because he's not an actual rich person. He's a failed businessman living on credit and lies.

No, Washington state, and alas, Baxter went over the bridge 2 years ago. Funny how each dog has their own favorite treat. Many moons ago had a rottie who loved, loved, loved pig ears so I would take her to Petsmart when they piled them up in a four foot bin at some not-seen-anymore cheap price.

She would get one a day. So funny to watch her hustle out the patio door as happy as can be. Turned out that she was storing them so she could binge. I was okay with that except when she'd keep bringing in dirt covered, wiggly ears one after another. Guess she knew that I would clean them off if they were going to be eaten in the house. Smart cookie. Baxter didn't do pig ears but dug marrow bones, and the current one is a rawhide fan.

That's really sweet.  Dogs have us trained pretty well.

Maggie is so kind and patient.  She practically put that shirt on herself.  She isn't a chewer, but loves her dollies.  Very gentle with them.
