All of Y’all Are Gross

Hillary Clinton’s campaign collaborated with Russians to get dirt on Donald Trump.

Donald Trump, Jr. was willing to meet with Russians to get dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Paul Manafort and Tony Podesta were doing something, it appears, with Russia.

Trump’s data people were willing to reach out to Wikileaks, which is nothing but an aid to Russia.

And the whole Christopher Steele “Trump Dossier” was started by a Republican donor who wanted to take out Trump. When that failed, he passed it off to Clinton.

This is all gross. The Russians were playing all sides to sow discord and disrupt and undermine our democracy. Neither side has clean hands. Both were willing to use Russians to help hurt the other side.

They all played dirty to win.

Spare me your histrionics about the Russians stealing the election. Hillary was a crap candidate with a crap campaign who got beat. And she too was willing to hop in bed with Russians to hurt the other side.

It’s all gross. It all harms the Republic. And neither side has any moral high ground left.

Vladimir Putin played them all for fools.

The only winner besides Putin is His Majesty Anthony Kennedy who just keeps getting more justification for propping up the judicial oligarchy to run our lives since the political branches can’t.
