I Just Can’t

Today, my dear readers, you find me without many words.

I’m not speechless, exactly, but I don’t have much to say in this moment. The President of the United States last night admitted on television that of course he’d look at anything a foreign government offered him on his opponent.

We’ve been fighting about this since 2016. During the campaign, in endless articles and tweets, in Congress and the Mueller Report. Trump and his cronies have all been covering up the truth since the beginning. And then he just blurts out that of course, if it helps him win a presidential election, he’d take whatever information a foreign actor would give him. Here’s the clip:

If for some reason the video doesn’t play in the tweet above, you can see the same clip on YouTube at this link (the specific portion starts at 2:14).

It’s the 2020 campaign version of his famous “Russia, if you’re listening” moment. He is inviting foreign actors to interfere with our election. And he’s got McConnell in the Senate refusing to hear any of the bipartisan bills on election security.

I’m going to take today to just be really pissed. I will be back with more helpful information and actions tomorrow.

  1. I think we are all in the same boat! Rachel last night pointed out the Mueller information specific to this topic in my own words saying something to the point that Mueller couldn’t say that they knew what they were doing ..wait for it..because they were ignorant! (my words) Even though they should have known, that people told them, etc. What kind of a buffoon is he and his family? Now I’m name calling but I don’t have words to express the disgust.

    Take the break. Self-care is important. Given enough rope – they will do themselves in … if we can get someone to hold them accountable. Congress if you can hear me…impeachment now please.

  2. Is this enough for Speaker Pelosi? And, why in the hell are people like Hicks and Trump Jr. testifying behind closed doors? I though Dems wanted to show the public what was going on. Kind of hard when when we can’t see it don’t you think? I’m just beyond frustrated with leadership. They play by the rules while Trump feels emboldened to do whatever he wants. Uncle!!!!!

    • I’m equally frustrated that the media keeps giving the Republicans a pass. None of them have gotten any kind of pressure or tough questions about Trump’s actions. They should be held accountable or at least forced to detail why they do or don’t support the President.
