Well the Faux Outrage Mob is back at it today because yesterday, President Trump answered a hypothetical question posed to him by George Stephanopoulos.
In regard to the upcoming 2020 election, Stephanopoulos asked Trump if he would take information offered from a foreign actor about an opponent or if he would alert the FBI.
President Trump answered, “I think maybe you do both. I think you might want to listen. There’s nothing wrong with listening.”
Now, leaving aside that it is not illegal to talk to foreigners, this was a hypothetical question to which President Trump gave a hypothetical answer.
And yet, the Outrage Mob is setting its hair on fire screaming that Trump is saying he’s going to accept foreign help to win the election!!!!
My God. This man is such a criminal!!!! How is he still PRESIDENT!!!! Reeeeeeeeeee!!!!!
He answered a freaking hypothetical question.
And Outrage Mob aside, answering a hypothetical question is not illegal.
Let me ask you a hypothetical question.
If you found out that your child was being sexually molested by someone, would you A) beat the living shit out of the guy or B) call the police?
Now, according to the Outrage Mob, every single one of you who said in this hypothetical you’d beat the living shit out of him (and even those of you who said you’d do both) are criminals and must be locked up.
It doesn’t matter that this is a hypothetical. Just admitting you would consider beating the crap out of the pedophile is enough to put you away according to the nitwits on cable news and in Hollywood.
Only, of course, it’s not. Because answering a hypothetical question isn’t illegal.
I admit my analogy is not completely in line.
Because, as I said earlier, talking to a “foreign actor” is not illegal whereas I’m guessing hunting down a predator and beating the crap out of him probably is.
But I think you get the point.
Back when the Covington kids were being dragged through the social media square, I gave you this helpful tip: Never fall for the Social Media Outrage Mob.
Trust me. Those are words to live by in this day and age.
Here’s a little inside baseball for you. The media talking heads and Democrat politicians who are well-I-nevering over Trump’s answer to this hypothetical question? They really aren’t outraged at all.
Their outrage is like a rip tide. The purpose is to drag unsuspecting people out away from reality and into the tumultuous deep waters of delusion.
They’ve been doing this for four friggin’ years.
“OMG!!! Trump called all Mexicans rapists!!!!!!”
(Only he didn’t)
“OMG!!!! Trump called immigrants animals!!!!!!!”
(Only he didn’t)
“OMG!!! Trump told the Russians to hack Hillary’s emails!!!!”
(Only he didn’t)
You get the idea.
The purpose of the latest outrage is twofold:
First, to stir up hysteria among the uninformed and thereby keep Trump Derangement on the front burner of the news cycle.
And second, to continue pushing the Russian collusion hoax that Mueller completely shut down.
The fact is, if using foreign “actors” (let’s stick with Georgie’s term) to get oppo research was actually illegal, Hillary Clinton and the DNC would be in some serious legal trouble right now.
See, Hillary and the DNC didn’t just talk about doing it hypothetically. They actually did it.
The Clinton campaign got a “foreign actor” (AKA Christopher Steele, a Brit) to gather oppo research on Trump by milking his connections within the Russian government.
In addition to that, the Clinton campaign and the DNC were in contact with the Ukrainian government to try and undermine Donald Trump’s candidacy.
In other words, all of this foaming at the mouth hysteria and outrage is utter BS and the people pushing it know it.
Sure, the ResistanceLOL will lap it up like a big dumb dog – as it does every time the faux Outrage Mob kicks into gear.
But it’s nonsense.
Instead of arguing — instead of getting pissed off — I choose to be amused by this.
If President Trump was really going down — if the walls were really closing in — the faux Outrage Mob wouldn’t need to gin up phony hysteria over nothing.
And trust me. This is nothing. It’s air in a jug.
These guys have thrown everything they can cook up at Donald Trump and it slides off of him like he’s been Scotch-Guarded.
So why waste your time and energy getting caught up in the rip tide?
