Well the big news today is an intel report from a supposed ex-MI6 agent, paid for by NeverTrump Republicans and Democrats that was passed to the FBI by John McCain.
This report has been floating around in the media for months, but they were unable to verify any of it and so it languished until CNN and Buzzfeed decided to publish the report anyway, albeit with disclaimers.
The predictable result is a major back-eye. Both for CNN and Buzzfeed as well as John McCain, his RINO pals and the DNC.
One of the most salacious claims was that Trump spent a night in the same room at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Moscow that the Obama’s used during an official trip to Russia. During that time Trump hired prostitutes to perform ‘golden showers’ (urinate) on the bed to defile it in an act of childish spite.
The report goes on to state that it was well known that the Russian FSB had all the rooms in the hotel rigged with cameras and microphones.
Oh really? So that means the Secret Service knowingly allowed the president and his wife to sleep in a hotel room that they knew, or had reason to believe was bugged by Russian spies.
Apparently, so obsessed with finding, or in this case, manufacturing dirt against Trump the media seems to have missed that obvious conclusion.
This whole spectacle also calls into question the credibility of US intelligence agencies that they fell for this. How is Trump supposed to trust anything these people bring to his attention?
One other amusing aspect of this fiasco is that last night Obama gave his tearful farewell address in Chicago. Thanks to all the media frenzy over this latest fake news, Obama’s last moment in the spotlight has been overshadowed to the point where it may as well never happened. Trump has sucked all the air out of the room and Obama is the forgotten man.
That’s gotta hurt his ego.
