From Russia (To Trump White House to Barbara Comstock) With Love


Virginia’s 10th Congressional District Democratic primary is getting a bit of unusual attention these days.

In short:

From Russia to Hannity to White House to Comstock, the trail of support for the (almost certainly) criminal (and likely treasonous) Trump is clear.

Vote Vets’ (which has endorsed Helmer) perspective is spot on:

More fundamentally, this is an excellent example of decades-old Republican sound machine misdirection — with the sweetener (tainting) of Russian engagement. As with all the manufactured outrage that the Right Wing has had over the decades — like breathless furor over President Barack Obama wearing a tan suit as some of fundamental outrage to humanity — this attack on Helmer both distorts the actual advertisement’s words and is a misdirection from discussing the substance. A simple reality recognized by all Americans paying attention to politics and not living in an #AlternativeFacts world:

Donald Trump
is an extremely
serious threat to
American Democracy.

A legitimate case can be made/argued that Trump is (along with his Republican Congressional enablers refusing to uphold their Oath of Office) perhaps the most serious internal threat the nation has faced to the Republic’s existence and future since Secession.

Who, conveniently, doesn’t see this? Tinfoil-hat conspiracy promoters like Sean Hannity and extremist partisan Republicans like Barbara Comstock who are clearly ready and willing to put (and are putting) party before country.
