Is this "tweet storm" a gigantic distraction??

Yes, what Trump tweeted today is appalling and debases the office of the presidency, even more than he already has. However, I can't help but wonder if this isn't some contrived way of sucking the air out of the news cycle to divert attention from something bigger behind the scenes. Perhaps I'm giving President Orange Julius too much credit, but it seems convenient, considering all of the bigger issues currently ongoing (i.e. The wealthcare bill in the senate, Pruit at the EPA approving a pesticide that causes birth defects, the ongoing Syria issue)

Since we're all carrying "The Weight"

Please tell me others here heard Mark Thompson this morning...

I was laughing so hard I had to pull off the road as he read Comey's statement about interactions with Trump in a sultry voice with Teddy Pendergrass's "Love TKO" playing in the background! Lmao...I was in tears!!

Is it past time to stop trusting media sources funded via RT??

I was listening to the Friday replay of the Thom Hartman show this morning and I was somewhat shocked to hear the fill in host rant about the Russian ties to Trump and his people. Essentially, and I admittedly caught the rant after it had started, he was lambasting the number of articles online and in mainstream media that are trying to connect the Trump campaign and the current administration to Russia, suggesting that much of it was fake in order to generate outrage from the left. While I agree that some sources should be taken with a grain of salt, I think there's been pretty clear evidence of collusion. I let that pass, thinking perhaps I missed the start of the rant and therefore missed his point. Yet, minutes later, when discussing potential impeachment of Trump, there was ZERO mention of Russian collusion, in fact it seemed like he went out of his way to avoid mentioning that as a cause for impeachment!

I think we can all agree that several of the RT "liberal" commentators have been more keen to attack Democrats than pursuing the Russian allegations. Should we now begin to question the motivation of those media personalities on the RT payroll?
