there was never any reasonable evidence of Trump colluding with the Russians. It was a Democrat dodge from the get-go. It was always a frantic effort to draw attention away from how crappy a candidate Hillary was.
It was always a lie and a dodge.
The fact that it gained traction and currency among the more gullible and hide-bound parts of the population is merely a demonstration of the credulous nature of the people. Those people expected the MSM to tell the truth. Foolish move. Welcome to 2017, you unsophisticated hick.
Times have changed.
There are other sources of information now, and the MSM no longer has a stranglehold on information. Now they must confront alternative accounts of events, and do so creditably. See, the key word here is, “creditably.”
But that brings up another issue: the MSM has “shot their wad” on this and now there is little left. They have hyped a theme that is simply not true, and now they reap the predictable result now that we know for a fact that it is not true–no one believes them anymore. Even my Lefty friends are more skeptical, now.
I mean, the MSM said over and over that Trump was a monster who couldn’t win and couldn’t govern if he did. Then they said he was a Russian stooge Yet they were wrong. On all counts. They have, shall we say, pooped in the soup. And now it can never be right again.
They have endorsed the trendy Post-Modernism of the Academy in order to attack their idealogical opponents, but Post-Modernism (certainly in the hands of rubes) is a vicious dog that now turns and rends its owners. Now they are on the recieving end of the whip that they themselves crafted and gleefully used on others. It was great when they held the handle of the whip…
As a great philosopher once said, “Welcome to the party, pal!”
See, if there is no truth as the Post-Modernists gleefully argue, why on earth should I believe them? Let’s see them answer that simple question.
