I Refuse to Write About Obama “Entrapping” Donald Trump Jr.

Why are you even reading this? I already told you: I am not going to write about the latest tinfoil hat nonsense from Fox News, AM Hate Radio and The Drudge Report/Breitbart. I absolutely refuse to talk about the conspiracy theory the right has latched onto that Obama allowed Natalia Veselnitskaya (Seriously, how are we not calling her “The Black Widow” yet?) into the country illegally so she could get the Trump campaign to break the law.

I am not going to talk about how Breitbart’s imbecile readers are clinging to this for dear life after months of sneering at the left and the press for insisting the Trump campaign had been working with the Russians. Their beloved leader’s son offered up indisputable proof that they did, so, like good cult members, they found an enemy to blame:

Yeah, I’m not going to write about this garbage. We here at The Daily Banter are used to writing about the right’s lies and deflections and general bullshit but this is so ridiculous that I can’t even bother. I knew they were going to throw everything at the wall to see what sticks but the fact that this is an emerging narrative tells me one thing and one thing only: There is literally no limit to how stupid the right will make itself sound to avoid taking responsibility.

No, I mean it. This doesn’t even rise to the level of the idiotic Seth Rich conspiracy that Sean Hannity was bellowing about the last time Trump needed a distraction. At least that one had an unsolved murder to hang your hat on. This? This is just dumb. Obama and the DNC set up Donald Trump’s campaign, tricking them in conspiring with the Russians and then sat on that information until after Trump had won the election? What? Why? Was it supposed to be an ace in the hole? Wouldn’t they have played it before the election? And how does that explain all the subsequent meetings with Russians that it seems every person on Trump’s team keeps “forgetting” about? Even for the usually incoherent mess that is the right this is a cognitive train wreck.

The only thing sadder than this joke of a story will be if the press actually gives it more than a single paragraph before dismissing it as worthless trash. 

One side of the political spectrum is in the process of murdering their own capacity for rational thought in real time. This is a golden age for clinical psychologists who have long wondered how an entire nation can go insane; too bad it’s looking more and more like the Dark Ages for everyone else.

There are 480 days left to the 2018 elections.
