TWGB: It's Really Very Damning


Um, the thing with the nuclear secrets and the boxes of stuff just being out where anyone would see them is real. The pictures are like some freaky episode of  Hoarders. Mar-a-Lago staff was calling these boxes "Beautiful Mind Paper" because TFG was obsessed with them. Did I spend the last half-dozen years going around saying "It looks bad because it is bad?" Because shit, look upon the goddamn works of your trunkless idol and despair!

Yes. Nuclear program stuff.   Kept in places as insecure as a bathroom and a ballroom, in a country club where randos, including foreign nationals, just wander in and out all the time.  This was revealed after the absolutely damningest transcript of all time, save one:

The transcript of the audio recording suggests that Trump is showing the document he’s discussing to those in the room. Several sources have told CNN the recording captures the sound of paper rustling, as if Trump was waving the document around, though is not clear if it was the actual Iran document.

“Secret. This is secret information. Look, look at this,” Trump says at one point, according to the transcript. “This was done by the military and given to me.”

This here is classified--please, non-eligible person to receive this data, look

The only reading I think was as bad was when Don Jr. got an email reading on behalf of the Russian government: we would like to help the campaign. 

It is always the worst case scenario with the Trump folks, and it's always heavy-denial time with the GOP--they can never seem to admit these people are as bad as they quite obviously appear. It's the people who notice they are bad that are the real baddies. 

And yes, the howling signifier monkeys are still howling their support of Donald Trump and think the whole standard of him not being in trouble if he wasn't treasonous is VERY UNFAIR! Why can't Very Good Boy Trump have a little nuclear secrets sharing, as a treat?

Uh, because that's crazy, and going full Bundy Ranch or whatever is a really stupid and weird reaction to Trump kind of getting recognized for the rotter he is who could simply be disavowed in favor of, I dunno, actually subscribing to the idea that national security matters like, if you were a person who pledged an oath to the Constitution, and it was your job? 

The information revealed with the indictments is an indictment on the supporters he continues to have. They could disavow him. It's a total choice. They aren't . Some just aren't.  And the choice to support him over the rule of law and the best interests of the country is sad.
