Sen. Tim Kaine Rips Trump for “patrolling the internet for weirdo conspiracy theories to promote”


Good to see Sen. Tim Kaine calling out the Conspiracy-Theorist-and-Racist-in-Chief (see tweets, below) for not doing his job, but instead “spending [his] time patrolling the internet for weirdo conspiracy theories to promote” about Jeffrey Epstein. Of course, Trump’s the same guy who has promoted numerous other wacked-out conspiracy theories, like

  • “During his campaign for President, Trump spread a conspiracy theory linking the father of his then-GOP presidential rival Sen. Ted Cruz to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.”
  • “Even before he was a candidate for President, Trump grew his following on the political right by promoting the conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was born in Kenya — and not the United States — even after Obama released a birth certificate showing he was born in the US.”
  • “Trump has also repeatedly claimed without evidence that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 election; has fed conspiracy theories about a ‘deep state’ of government officials working against him; and has also falsely smeared former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation as a ‘witch hunt’¬†and called the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign “treason” — among many others.”
  • And how about Trump’s science-related conspiracy theories, such as that windmills cause cancer (THEY DO NOT) or that if we switch to wind power we won’t be able to watch TV (also 100% FALSE) or that “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive” (HE’S COMPLETELY INSANE) or that “Healthy young child goes to doctor, gets pumped with massive shot of many vaccines, doesn’t feel good and changes – AUTISM. Many such cases!” (DITTO TO PREVIOUS COMMENTS)…

So, sadly, I suppose we can’t be surprised that Trump’s now spreading “weirdo conspiracy theories,” as Sen. Kaine correctly describes them, about Jeffrey Epstein. But we can all be disgusted that such an appalling, ignorant buffoon somehow made it to the White House. Because the fact is that, even assuming we defeat Trump in November 2020 – which of course we must – “The Shame and Disgrace Will Linger.” In the meantime, sadly, “this presidency shames and disgraces the office every minute of every hour of every day.”

P.S. Here’s the Trump “retweet” that Kaine’s referring to. As former Acting Solicitor General of the United States Neal Katyal writes, this would be “outrageous” if trump were “a member of a local city council, let alone the person who is to Take Care that the Laws be Faithfully Executed.”
