This just in: Trump and the GOP are becoming the “party that cried wolf” as one scandal after another is shown to be nothingburgers.
About a week ago, texts between two FBI sweethearts referred to a “secret society.” Fox News, the entire Republican Party and, of course, President Trump, took this ball and ran with it. They claimed, with zero evidence, that this was proof the FBI was biased against Trump and his minions.
Turns out the “secret society” comment was just a joke. 100% of the panic surrounding this issue was fabricated to justify the numerous Republicans that got TV facetime claiming to get to the bottom of this.
This did not stop the Cycle-O-Panic from restarting yesterday when Fox News posted bombshell emails from Obama. Trump, in accordance with his conditioning, tweeted his “bombshell”…which was debunked in a matter of hours.
The “memo” is probably the biggest nothing burger. In short, the FBI has been investigating a Trump guy due to his activities with Russia. They issued a FISA warrant which allows this “oversight”. The process involves giving judges information and asking for permission to spy on someone. It needs to be renewed, apparently, every quarter.
In the “memo”, it was determined that although the FISA warrant had already been approved 3 times, on the 4th time, there was some reference to the Steele Dossier (in addition to pages of other evidence). No one actually knows what was told to the judges to convince them to renew the warrant a 4th time but speculation went like this…
CNN: Why are you upset about this memo?
Republican: Because it mentioned the Steele Dossier.
CNN: What else was mentioned?
Republican: I have no idea but I heard the FBI is against Trump.
CNN: What does that have to do with the FISA warrant?
Republican: It means, it means….No! You shut up!
CNN: What evidence do you have of FBI bad behavior.
Republican: Someone told me they were bad…M’Kay?
CNN: Who told you that?
Republican: Another Republican.
The only amazing thing about this is that people vote for these clowns.
Time to save the world.
Up, up and away…
