... had to recuse himself from any potential Russia investigation because of his own dealings with Russians. He's the one who recommended that the president fire Comey. The guy who's supposed to not be involved in the Russia investigation helped fire the head of the Russia investigation.
Rex Tillerson, also up to his old man balls in vodka and suspicious business dealings, met with Russian Minister Sergey Lavrov along with Trump the very next day at the White House, and Lavrov blatantly joked about Comey being fired. He then proceeded to have a private meeting which only Russian media was permitted to attend. In the fucking White House. The American one.
Everyone -- all the intelligence agencies, and from the look of things, Congress too -- is on board with the idea that Russia tried to influence the 2016 election. They might have just tried to do the same thing in France, too. Trump, meanwhile, continually calls the Russia investigation shit like "fake" and a waste of time. Sarah Huckabee Sanders went on TV after Comey was fired and said it's time to leave the investigation behind us. But it's ongoing, you unbelievable mind slug! The FBI issued subpoenas for General Flynn's business associates the same day Comey was fired. This is a real thing. There's real evidence.
You don't even have to lean left to see that this is a thing. No one, right now, is saying Trump is personally involved. It's heavily inferred, sure, but there's no evidence yet. But there sure as shit is evidence that people around him are involved, despite the dumb shit Kellyanne Conway told Anderson Cooper that made him roll his eyes so hard that the inside of his skull must have gotten a friction burn.
He was rushed into surgery before "retina detachment from bullshit" was declared a pre-existing condition.
People in the administration, people with ties to the White House, have clearly been involved in shady ways with the Russian government. Embrace that shit. Deal with it. No one likes it, but it's not like a kid on the schoolyard telling everyone you shit your pants when it didn't really happen. This shit really happened. And it's spiraling out of control in the most unbelievable way, made all the more unbelievable by the fact that every time someone hits political rock bottom, they pull out a goddamn shovel and dig just a little bit deeper, while the sane people in the world keep shaking their heads and hoping an adult shows up soon to make this all better. Well hold on to your butts, because there are no adults left in this fucking building.
If you need the perfect image of just how fucking bull-goose loony this is, how utterly baffling and beyond surreal, you have but to look at Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Sean "Are You Fucking Kidding?" Spicer dealt with this situation by hiding in some goddamn shrubs like he was a bush pig trying to lay low while a coyote ran past. There he stayed until reporters turned their lights and cameras off so he could venture out like a timid little chipmunk eager to eat your peanut but fearful of your heady man-stench. This is the White House press secretary, who required the cover of darkness and the safety of woodlands to address a pressing issue. Can you imagine what would happen if we ever went to war with North Korea? You'll have to dig to the bottom of a Chuck E. Cheese ball pit to find Spicer, sitting in a tepid pool of urine and cheese with a snorkel on.
