Russian For Transparency


cjones07172017

I’m going to dinner with two of my best friends who are coming in from out of town, and I haven’t seen them in a really long time. So, column will come later.

Update 11:39 A.M., 07/15/2017

Here’s your column:

I expect any day now for Donald Trump to tell us that he’s not a tool of the Russian government and Vladimir Putin, who is actually a nice guy who is misunderstood….unlike that Moose and Squirrel who should die while exiled in Siberia!!!

I don’t know which is dumber. The right wing trolls who believe Natalia Veselnitskaya was a plant by the Democrats, or the Trump team telling us how transparent Donald Trump Jr. has been.

Even if Veselnitskaya was a Democratic plant, Junior still took the meeting. If she was a plant by Bigfoot and B.D. Cooper, he still took the meeting. If she was a plant by the Lollipop Guild and the Wicked Witch of the East, he still took that meeting. He went to the meeting, described beforehand as harmful information on Hillary Clinton from the Russian government. He took that meeting.

When he got the emails saying the Kremlin wanted his daddy to win, the trust-fund baby didn’t reply with, “What? Russia wants my father to win? Why would they want that? He’s a proud American patriot. That’s just crazy? They must have him confused with someone else because daddy Trump is an American first and would never be Putin’s bitch”. No. He replied with “I love it.” It’s like he was going to McDonalds for a Happy Meal. I’m lovin’ it! It’s as if he was already aware that the Kremlin wanted his dad to be president and serve four years with Putin’s hand up his butt controlling his every movement.

Trump defenders argue that Junior didn’t get anything out of the meeting and it was a disappointment. Well if you rob a bank and the safe is empty, that would be disappointing too but you still broke into the bank. And really? Disappointment? Darn. The treason didn’t work out.

The president says a lot of people would have taken that meeting. Yes. A lot of people without ethics with the intent to commit treason, which is how Trump defenders are sounding.

The president and his team also tell us that only Russian adoptions were discussed, as if that’s to ease our concerns. The president is either being dishonest or stupid with that explanation, which in his case can be both. When they mention adoptions what they are really talking about are sanctions. If they had dirt on Hillary Clinton, that’s quid pro quo. They wanted something in return for that. That also further explains why Vladimir Putin wanted Trump elected.

And quite frankly, you’re not transparent when you don’t reveal all the information at once. Junior went on Sean Hannity’s show, who was light on him, and said that there wasn’t any more information about the meeting. He had given it all. Then news is revealed that at least eight people were in that room. You had Junior dumbass, Jared “I want a secret cable from the Russian embassy” Kushner, Paul “let’s make a deal with Russia” Manafort, Ms. Veselnitskaya, a former Soviet intel officer who is now a lobbyist for that government, Rob Goldstone who is the Trump supporting Russia lover who set up the meeting, and two translators. Don’t be surprised if more details come out, like Putin was on the speakerphone.

Here’s the thing, Trump sycophants. I know you love Trump. I know it’s not about policy with you guys. I know you’re willing to lose your health-care coverage for him. I know it’s about the cult of personality, and has nothing to do with capable leadership. I understand you would rather be ruled than governed. But is it all that above patriotism for you? You gotta stop making excuses for traitors, really stupid idiotic traitors at that.

Isn’t it kinda funny that the jerks who spent the past eight years describing themselves as patriots, and accusing Obama of siding with terrorists, are now the ones who are selling out their nation? It’s bizarre that Republicans, the party of Reagan, is now selling us out to the Russians. It’s almost as ironic as the Trump presidency being brought down by an email scandal.

Urine A Lot Of Trouble


cjones07122017

At this point, I kinda half expect Trump to release the pee tape to distract us from all the treason his campaign and family have committed.

For months, Donald Trump has been screaming “fake news” and that the Russia story is a hoax perpetuated by Democrats as an excuse for losing an election they should have won. Trump has whined about losing the popular vote and made up conspiracy theories for why he lost, like voter fraud. He’s insecure that Russia might have influenced his electoral victory but swears that Putin didn’t help him win, and there definitely, positively, most assuredly, was not any collusion between Russia and his presidential campaign.

The president and his paid sycophants tell us nobody from the campaign met with the Russians…except for Michael Flynn….oh, and Jeff Sessions…and Paul Manafort, Carter Page, J.D. Gordon, Jared Kushner…and now it’s revealed that Donald Trump Jr. didn’t just meet with a Russian with connections to the Kremlin, he met her after being promised for dirt on Hillary Clinton gathered by the Russians.

Shortly after meeting with the Russian lawyer last June, Junior Trump denied that Russia was trying to help the campaign and cast shame on anyone who would make such an outrageous accusation. How absurd.

A buddy of Donny Jr. called him up and informed him that a Russian wanted to provide information damaging to the Clinton campaign. Junior didn’t call the FBI. He didn’t turn down the meeting. He gathered Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort and met the Russian in Trump Tower.

The Trump campaign has a tendency to not say anything about meeting Russians, and claiming they forgot the meeting after the press makes the discovery. As news developed over Jr’s meeting, he kept changing his story. He first claimed they only discussed Americans adopting Russian babies. As more details were revealed, he admitted he went to the meeting hoping for dirt on Clinton, but the information he received was flimsy.

That’s the problem. He received emails informing him the information was gathered by the Russian government. He’s told about the information. He doesn’t turn down the meeting. He goes to the meeting hoping the Russians will provide details on Hillary Clinton that will aid his father’s campaign. He takes the manager of the campaign and his brother-in-law. If this isn’t an attempt at collusion, then what is? You don’t get brownie points for not cheating on your wife because nobody would sleep with you, and Donald Trump Jr. shouldn’t get off because his attempt at treason was a huge flop.

Who believes that the president was unaware of this meeting, even though his eldest son, Jared, and his campaign manager all knew about it? That doesn’t pass the smell test. Junior also says that he didn’t know who he was meeting which is another explanation that doesn’t smell good. We’re supposed to swallow that he allowed an unknown person to meet him at Trump Tower, and he got Kushner and Manafort to come along when they didn’t know the reason for the meeting? I know Trump voters are stupid but c’mon man! Who is going to actually believe this horse shit?

In the 2000 presidential race, the Al Gore campaign received stolen papers on George W. Bush’s debate prep. The Gore campaign alerted the FBI.

Every campaign wants dirt on their opponent. What they don’t do is use stolen material. Donald Trump did use stolen material during his run. He used it when he read pages of leaks from WikiLeaks at campaign events. He even publicly asked the Russian government to release Clinton’s emails. Now it turns out that they were attempting to work with the Russians. Hey, if this one meeting didn’t work out, how do we know there weren’t other meetings? Everything they’ve denied so far has turned out to be a lie.

Every item that comes out is further proof that Trump colluded with the Russians. If his oldest son is meeting Russians, are we going to discover that Eric met a Russian spy at Starbucks? Has Barron consulted with one at the swing-n-slide?

Donald Trump is a skunk of a human being and totally lacking class, honor, ethics, and principles. For Donald Trump Jr., the rotten apple doesn’t fall far from the rancid tree.

Creative notes: Everyone in the world has known about the pee tape rumor. I just haven’t been able to mention it in a cartoon. With this cartoon, I decided to damn them torpedoes. I know most of my newspaper clients won’t run this, but they’re used to me giving them someone every few weeks that’s “dangerous.” My online clients will love it.
