Even as his Russia scandal explodes with more incriminating information by the day, Donald Trump is still defending his idiot son, Donald Trump Jr., for blowing the scandal wide up with his secret Russia meeting.
Earlier today, Trump once again reminded America that he is fine with collusion with a foreign government when he defended his son for meeting with a Russian lawyer to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. Making himself and his inner circle look more guilty than ever, Trump tweeted that “most politicians” would have taken the opportunity to destroy their opponent’s presidential campaign because “That’s politics!” We seriously doubt a dignified president such as former POTUS Barack Obama would have done the same. Here’s Trump’s tweet:
This isn’t the first time Trump has issued a shocking defense of his son’s actions. Last week, Reuters reported:
Asked if he knew that his son was meeting with the Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June last year, Trump said in a White House interview: “No, that I didn’t know until a couple of days ago when I heard about this.”
In the interview, Trump said he did not fault his son for holding the meeting. “I think many people would have held that meeting,” the president said.
Trump and his inner circle couldn’t possibly look any more guilty at this moment in time, and Trump just keeps making it worse with tweets like this. Trump’s Twitter account alone provides enough information to say that Trump has practically confessed to colluding with Russia, and doesn’t think there was anything wrong with his corrupt actions.
The outrage that has risen in the country over Russia’s interference in the election proves that most people would not have done as Trump and his team have done. It’s not “politics” – it is incredibly dangerous and undermines our democracy.
