Bill Tozer

Good news. For eleven bucks, you can buy the free Mueller Report from the Wa Compost with, of course, an intro written by two Post liars to tell you what to think. What a bargain! Pimp my ride.

It’s amazing how adapt the DNC media is at predicting everything in the report and the fallout before one word has been read. Such seers. The DNC Media’s credibility is their stock and trade. Unfortunately, they have no stock to trade.

Let the spin games begin. It’s a threat to our Democracy!


Bill Tozer

Read report here.....for free. It’s runnning slow.



Just say no!

Mission Accomplished!

Game Over!

Reds need another script writer

Bill Tozer

A brief skim of the mental breakdown of the DNC Media Complex. Quite the display of psychosis. Popcorn time. Popping heads time.



"Just say no!
Mission Accomplished!
Game Over!

Reds need another script writer"

lol. Oh, don't be such a bad sport. No doubt some Trump company fired a POC or he had a tawdry girlfriend in 1987. Just keep digging, there has to be something!

Personally, I'm getting tired of winning so much, there has to be an end to it.


From that newsbusters site:


Too funny. Remember back when they used to have news on TV? At least she didn't start crying on the air.

WHY?!!! WHY??!!!! lol.

WHY is that stuff on the air? It's like watching a combination of a Blue Mob Rush Limbaugh and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Bill Tozer

Oh my. Rosenstein did not blink his eyes! The press conference was an act of Colllusion in and of itself! What more proof do we need? Impeach him!


Personally, I think the silent bearded dude was holing Barr’s horse.

Bill Tozer

Embarrassing typo @9:22am. Holding Barr’s horse, not holing. I offer no excuses and accept full responsibility.

Paul Emery

Mueller's report is defiantly a hand off to Congress. Look for Mueller to testify asap. Chances of impeachment are increasing because of the plethora of evidence of Presidential misconduct. Since Trump will not be re-elected, Congress may decide on an endless drip drip of investigations and revelations to seal the deal. Presidential Sleaze has reached a crescendo surpassing Clintons "not sex" servicing in the White House and even Nixons "I am not a crook" spouting.

Presidential loyalty will be tested so don't be surprised if a viable Republican Presidential candidate may emerge as an option if Trump is declared down and out by the American voters.


"Personally, I think the silent bearded dude was holding Barr’s horse." (corrected)

'Cause justice is the one thing you should always find
You got to saddle up your boys, you got to draw a hard line
When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune
And we'll all meet back at the local saloon
And we'll raise up our glasses against Evil forces singing
Whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

I quite hope there will be a Part Deux to this situation. The 17 intelligence agencies could stand a bit of a sweeping.


..and I should credit Keith/Emerick


Paul @10:01AM sez: some stuff

lol. You guys are *such* bad losers. Don't you even feel slightly embarrassed?

I admire the tactic of making up just any old thing (Nixon's The One poster with pregnant black lady), but really.

Paul Emery


Do you think Mueller's report makes Trump a "winner"?

Barry Pruett

Wow. It is so amazing how people have such diametrically opposed views on the mueller report. I don’t see anything in the report that warrants anything except an apology to Trump. Apparently Paul thinks Trump can get impeached now. I love this country. 🇺🇸


"Do you think Mueller's report makes Trump a "winner"?"

Everything makes Trump a winner. One man with a twitter account and a league of deplorables vs. the forces of evil. Mordor appears to own media, schools, appointed officials at the 17 intelligence agencies.

It's a fair match thus far.

You need to get to inventing some new imaginary trumpcrimes.



Odds that Paul read the Mueller Report -> 0%

Paul Emery


From my lens Mueller, by claiming he does not have the authority to indict the President on anything, is saying that he's leaving up to Congress to decide on a path forward which may lead to impeachment. Remember, Mueller specifically does not exonerate Trump on obstruction of justice charges.


,,,No Collusion, No Collusion!!!

What happened to the peanut popper Deep State conspiracy???

And now this,


Paul Emery

I'm reading it as we speak Scenes. Have you? Here's a link


Todd Juvinall

No collusion no obstruction. All the other stuff is BS. Just Mueller putting in crap for his pal Comey.

Paul Emery

Tod, did you believe Nixon when he declared "I am not a crook"?

Bill Tozer

Finished the Carter Page and George the Greek parts...and the Trump Tower. What a nothingburger. The Russian Collusion fakenews narrative was been put to bed. At least that is the one thing that Mueller and all concerned can agree on. A no-brainer.




Get started, Paul. Get started, Dems. You've got just enough time tucked between primary elections to get articles of impeachment through the House and to the Senate by the conventions in the Summer of 2020.


Todd Juvinall

Yes I say go go go on impeachment. Can't wait to see that and then get the House back.


Paul Emery, with authority, sez: "I'm reading it as we speak Scenes."

lol. Yah, sure. It's page three. Your eyes..are....getting.....very...........heavy.

Gregory: "Get started, Paul. Get started, Dems."

This election season should be amazing. A whole herd of crazy people all proving their intersectionality street cred vs. a one man political wood chipper. It should be sweet.

Bill Tozer

The Barr press conference. A quick take from someone with a judicial temperment and who is without TDS.

“That is why Barr laid out the facts that the president could have shut down the investigation but did not; that he could have asserted executive privilege to withhold information from the investigation, but instead made numerous witnesses and well over a million documents available to the special counsel; and that – reportedly according to Mueller – the president sincerely felt frustrated that the investigation was unfairly undermining his presidency. The point is that these facts so cut against the idea of corruptly impeding an investigation that it is inconceivable the prosecutor could prove an obstruction case beyond a reasonable doubt.”

“A final thought on this. The problem we have when a prosecutor makes a decision that implicates politics is that an unreal standard is imposed. For a prosecutor, either there is enough evidence of a crime or there is not. There is no gray area in between. But in reality, there is more gray area than anything else. The fact that no crime is found does not mean the underlying conduct merits our endorsement. It is common sense that we can conclude the president did not handle each of the ten incidents in a way we find admirable, and at the same time agree that the president’s conduct was not felonious.

“Common sense is in short supply, though.”


Watching the monkeys trying to hump a greased pig is entertaining, if nothing else. It has become a national pastime.
“I guess they fall back on the “where there’s smoke there’s fire” trope, but that is not always the case. Sometimes there’s just smoke. Sometimes someone turned on a smoke machine.

“This didn’t stop every major media outlet from running with the “10 episodes” of potential obstruction narrative. And because there were so many, that must mean Trump actually obstructed an investigation into a crime that didn’t exist.”


Now put your lips together and say, “There was no collusion.”


Mark the Tape!!


Todd - You were right, as always. Pot smoking Muslim terrorists torched Notre-Dame. How the heck did you come to that conclusion within minutes of the fire starting? Case closed. Firing squad or beheading? While we're at it, we might as well Lock Her Up!

"Investigators believe an 'electrical short circuit' was responsible for starting the blaze which devastated Notre Dame cathedral this week. "

Trumps memory problems:

Add senility to the list of Trumps mental decencies.

"Trump told special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators on more than 30 occasions that he did not recall, remember or have independent memories of key events throughout the Russia investigation, leading Mueller's team to deem his written responses to questions “inadequate.”

In his detailed report on the probe, released to the public Thursday, Mueller revealed for the first time the results of his written interview with Trump. The special counsel’s questions covered Trump’s knowledge of the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, Russian hacking during the election, the Trump Organization’s Moscow project and contacts with Russia during the 2016 election and transition.

Trump wrote to investigators he had “no recollection of learning at the time” about the June 2016 meeting between his son, son-in-law, campaign chairman and Russians who offered dirt on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, “nor do I recall” learning of it during the campaign."




That's shocking! More than 30 occasions?

What are you going to do about it?

Todd Juvinall

Trump is trashed by Nadler and his gang and they give no credit to Trump for never invlving himself in the witch hunt. Seems logical that if he had something to hide he would have stopped it as he could rightly have done. But listening to the haters I can see they would rather get Trump than help America. They are traitors and seditionists in my view. Seven Days in May here again.

OOZE, why are you so unhinged today? Did you forget your JB again?

Paul Emery

Just reporting the facts Gregory

Paul Emery

sp "Add senility to the list of Trumps mental deficiencies."


So, Punch, you think it's a fact that Trump is senile on the basis of written responses to Mueller's team's questions?

Bill Tozer

Oh my. Trump does not recall 30 times. Trump has nothing on Comey or My Gal. They said it hundreds of times...under oath and under questioning, lol. Oh, I feel your pain.

Now, give them some of that old time religion to make it through these difficult times.


Time to take a deep breath and reflect on how to become a better person.


Todd Juvinall

Comey did not recall a couple of hundred times. Hillary the same. But Paul Emery's nose is up their asses so he gives them no mind.

Bill Tozer

That Candace Owens is my kind of Gal. And to think the media and our Enlightened Betters call her a White Nationalist, lol. You go Gal

Oh my. Dan is having too much fun. More White Supremists speak to Congress. You go girls. You beat that old black man silly. Remember Hayden Williams. Diamonds are hard.


Don Bessee

This is the real story here, the deep state conspires with leftist media -




So, Punch, you think it's a fact that Trump is senile on the basis of written responses to Mueller's team's questions?

Answer the question.

George Rebane

Does anyone remember the number of times while under oath that Comey forgot critical goings on in the bureau of which he was the director?


Punch... are you there?

Paul Emery

Why don't you document and refresh us George

I contend he has an astounding lack of memory that could be considered senility or he's lying.

Here's an example:

"I was in Trump Tower in New York City on October 7, 2016. I have no recollection of being told that WikiLeaks possessed or might possess emails related to John Podesta before the release of Mr. Podesta's emails was reported by the media. Likewise, I have no recollection of being told that Roger Stone, anyone acting as an intermediary for Roger Stone, or anyone associated with my campaign had communicated with WikiLeaks on October 7, 2016I do not recall having had any discussion during the campaign regarding a pardon or action to benefit Julian Assange. "

How can you "not recall" such a monumental events? He didn't say it did or didn't happen he just said he "can't recall.


Paul Emery

Gregory, George

A quick question:

do you consider Trump to be mentally and emotionally fit to be President?

Bill Tozer

Well, it is sorta sad to see the Leftinistas contiinue to carry Putin’s water. Just think of all the free meddling the Russians are getting and sowing discord without lifting a finger. I bet Putin is rolling on the floor laughing his punchy off right now. Fact is stranger than fiction.

In Mueller they trust. Good read from our next Woodward and Bernstein, John Solomon.

“One inherent message of the first volume of the Mueller report is clear: It is time for the professional media to assume responsibility for its role in inflaming the public with a scandal that wasn’t proven, by endlessly quoting intelligence and partisan political sources whose claims went far beyond the evidence it slithered upon.

“Case closed. Russiagate was no Watergate.

“Because Trump refused an interview with Mueller, on the advice of his attorneys, the only state-of-mind evidence that prosecutors had directly from him came from the president’s interview with NBC News’s Lester Holt, just a few days after the president fired then-FBI Director James Comey.

“In that interview, Trump made clear that he did not want to stop the Russia investigation and actually expected his actions would elongate it.

“His motive, he said, was simply to get a more competent person in charge so that the probe would be “absolutely done properly” and the outcome would be the “right thing for the American people.”

“That’s hardly the intentions of an obstructive criminal kingpin.


Lest we be drawn amiss, the most important evidence so far is “The White House is running this”—-Peter Strzok, August 2016.

Paul Emery

Fox news bails on supporting Barr

"Fox News anchor Shepard Smith on Thursday explained to his audience how voters were “deceived” by Attorney General Bill Barr’s claims about what was included in the report by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Smith noted the discrepancy between whether Barr views his job as working for the American people or being the personal attorney for President Donald Trump."



"Just reporting the facts Gregory" 1205pm

"I contend he has an astounding lack of memory that could be considered senility or he's lying." 1239pm

So, you're just reporting facts or you're contending he could be considered senile or he's lying, based on his written answers to questions from a special persecutor?

Which is it, Paul? Honest reporting of facts, or are you presenting facts in a way to support your contentions?

Barry Pruett

I think President Trump is mentally and emotionally completely fit to be president of the United States. All of this impeachment nonsense is going to do nothing but guarantee that Trump wins in 2020. The bat shit crazy show in the House of Representatives shows that Democrats are not serious. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and Jerry Nadler are the drivers of the clown car with AOC and the rest of those nuts in the backseat. 🤡


"Fox news bails on supporting Barr"

But then you present it's Shep Smith, Never Trumper, that has discouraging words following all his previous discouraging words.

Why did you lie, Paul?

Don Bessee

Who cares what shep said @1 he is a never Trumper big deal only to the TDS set.

The littlest commiecongress-critter is a coward who did not want evidence of her next foot swallowing episode -

Organizers of the Protect Veterans Health Care at the VA town hall in New York featuring Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tell Fox News that the event was at capacity, but video from inside the building tells a different story. 'Fox & Friends Weekend' co-host and veteran Pete Hegseth sounds off on the rejection.



Todd Juvinall

The Paul Emery witches are desperate. Trump is totally in control of his facilities, unlike Paul Emery who seems to have dementia. When one repeats themselves constantly like he does that is a sure sign the noggin is in trouble.

Trump was cleared and exonerated for something that never happened. Now they are desperate to pin "obstruction" on him which is so laughable it makes me hurt. But the democrats and never Trumpers will keep on trucking to oblivion while we make America Great Again!

Michael R. Kesti

Paul Emery | 18 April 2019 at 01:00 PM

Yes, Shepard Smith was today, as he often is, pretty rough on Barr and Trump, too. Smith's reporting is one of the many ways that Fox News Channel is far more "fair and balanced" than any of their counterparts. To characterize this as FNC "bailing" on anything or anybody, however, is blatantly biased reporting and just plain wrong.


I think the Constitution placed the decision of who should be President into the people voting in November 2016. I voted for Gary Johnson and not a single elector was selected as a result of my vote. In California, a large majority of the people voted for Hillary Clinton, who got all of California's electors, but across the country, Trump won more electors, and he became the duly elected President.

Paul, and people both crazier and more sane than Paul, have, since the Nov '16 election, have campaigned against the result of the last election demanding the choice be rescinded. That hasn't worked so far, has it, Paul?

Paul and friends appear not to be willing to stop the failed bid to invalidate the last election.

Bill Tozer

@1:06 pm
Boy, from all the wailing and gnashing of teeth, just imagine if Ginsberg kicked the bucket and we had another Kavanaugh hearing to show the world how stark raving mad the Leftinistas and their popinjays are. That would put the icing on the cake. In fact, the disconnected from reality unhinged ones always sound and look and act Iike their world is one big Kavanaugh hearing..... up to this very hour. And those screeching banshee voices. Oh my. “I believe her, I believe Shep”, lol.

Nadler said forget the report, they will find the collusion. I hope they never stop digging and digging and digging their own grave. How thoughtful of them. Saves us from getting our hands dirty or breaking a sweat.

Boy, Time magazine had to get their air brush folks on overtime to clean this mug up. Lest we forget. :)


George Rebane

Let me add my two-bits that anyone who equates liberal anchor Shep Smith's editorialized news presentations with FN's overall policy is just ignorant of the ideological terrain defining our country's news media. And doing it on a site like RR, is really pissing into the wind.

Don Bessee

So now that they have run out of rancid Russian dressing lets get back to the real world. ITS THE ECONOMY STUPID!!

Initial jobless claims keep grinding lower and lower.
The last time this few Americans sought the help of government after losing a job was in November 1969. Initial Jobless Claims tumbled another 5K from the prior week's revised 197K to just 192K: the second consecutive sub-200K print in 50 years, and the lowest print since September 1969.

Now Paul, after being so excited about the Mueller investigation from the beginning... and now, having read the redacted copy... can you describe fully how let down you are from your high? Isn't it like Christmas morning when you were seven and the toy you'd been whining about for months is there, and it isn't any fun to play with after all?

Trump is still President; the election will be about whether he will still be President after the inauguration in Jan 2021.


ToddJ: "...Paul Emery who seems to have dementia."

Bam. I hadn't really thought of that. It's certainly possible. Mid 70's?

I'll have to drive a stake in the ground here to be nicer to him from now on as it's certainly possible. Along with all my other sins, I don't want to feel bad for being needlessly mean to somebody who can't help it.

Paul Emery

Gregory writes:

"So, you're just reporting facts or you're contending he could be considered senile or he's lying, based on his written answers to questions from a
special persecutor? "

Either way Gregory. Hard to tell which. Do you think it's normal to forget details of such monumental events? Gosh and Golly, some executives even keep notes. Which is it, Trump is senile or is lying?


Why do "some executives keep notes" if it isn't normal to forget details?

In fact, if I'm hazy on details of who, what, where, how and why and a committee of 19 lawyers who hated me enough to give lots of money to my opposition are asking me detailed questions under power of great authority in what was the busiest period of my life... I'd probably say I didn't remember the details.

I often keep notes. But ask me something about what happened a year or two ago that I didn't keep notes on, I might not remember. Especially if my answer, if wrong, might be construed to be perjury. In fact, especially if it could be a perjury trap in the first place.

Paul, give up. There's no there there.

Todd Juvinall

Read page 10 if you want to get the true jist of this witch hunt. What is amazing to me is Mueller unilaterally changes Rosenstein's orders from "collusion" to "conspiracy. And the lack of backup for the myths is incredible.


"HEY DEMS -You know you could impeach @realDonaldTrump tomorrow but @SpeakerPelosi won't do it.

She's the only thing stopping it.

Your own leader.

Are you going to just let Nancy deny you the TRUMP TREASON COLLUSION EMOLUMENTS TREASON justice you deserve?

1:17 PM - 18 Apr 2019"


Barry Pruett

Ok. The argument to impeach Trump. Trump, with his Article II powers, maybe obstructed a fake Russian collusion witch-hunt into an outsider who was duly elected President of the United States started by insiders from either the FBI or DOJ or Clinton or NSA or CIA or all of the above with absolutely no evidence even though Mueller, who hired nearly all Democrat insider operatives who wanted to get Trump, found absolutely no collusion (none) and could not even bring the obstruction charge in the first place. That’s just silly.

Barry Pruett

Drain the swamp


"Which is it, Trump is senile or is lying?"

It might be that Trump is neither senile or lying. It actually may be that he didn't remember well enough to answer.

Scenes @ 3:06 pm.

We are on the same page. It does tug at the heartstrings to see him suffer so for so long. It brings me no joy to see an obviously disturbed person gasping for air or flopping on the deck like a fish out of water.
Yes, it has occurred to me as well that it may not he his fault or something going on internally beyond his control. Best to be nice so we have no regrets when his time comes to leave his mortal coil. Dr. Rebane has shown remarkable long suffering with the afflicted and we should try to follow the kind doctor’s lead.

Afternoon report

“Dearest readers, spare a thought for the folks at CNN because, as Thursday wore on, they’re having a difficult time accepting reality of no collusion and no charges on obstruction of justice following the release of the Mueller report. Between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Eastern, CNN Newsroom was filed with media statements divorced from reality.”


Don Bessee

Pompeo just got the best job evaluation possible -

North Korea has demanded the removal of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo from nuclear talks, accusing him of "talking nonsense" and being "reckless".

A senior foreign ministry official said that further talks would be "lousy" if Mr Pompeo was involved, asking that he be replaced by someone "more careful".



Don Bessee

OH LOOK! One of the socialist dems is signing on to a soviet propaganda organ -

One of the organizations Gillibrand is "proud" to partner with, the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), was infamous during the Cold War for its defense of Communist governments and for its kneejerk support of the Soviet line.




Just finished thumbing through the first half of report. That Donald Trump is one hell of a stand up guy. Pretty certain I don't see the connection between him and his evangelical support, but when I see all those holier than thou mormons from Salt Lake City lined up at the bars and casinos in Wendover with ball caps pulled low, I get the connect.

Daily Quotes

Upright: “Speech is not violence — and violence is not speech. Equating the two is the hallmark of a tyrannical worldview: If I can treat your speech as violence, then I am justified in using violence to suppress your speech. And yet that obvious fallacy has become the rallying cry in defense of execrable Rep. Ilhan Omar.” —Ben Shapiro

Non sequitur: “There are charities that we’ve donated to that we’ve recorded and itemized, others that we’ve donated to that we have not. I’ll tell you, I’m doing everything I can right now, spending this time with you, not with our kiddos, not back home in El Paso, because I want to sacrifice everything to make sure that we meet this moment of truth with everything we’ve got.” —Beto O'Rourke on why he gave less than 1% to charity in 2017

Braying Jenny: “Our GND [Green New Deal] rollout was really difficult. And it was done in a way that … it was really easy to hijack the narrative around it. It was, like, too fast. … I actually think the resolution itself is very solid, but … there were, like, competing documents that were rolled out, some prematurely, that muddied the waters. … It was just frustrating. Just intensely frustrating.” —Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Braying Jackass: “I think ‘Abolish ICE’ is a call to action on several levels. One is the literal interpretation of all abolishing ICE, which I support… I don’t believe that an agency that systematically and repeatedly violates human rights … can be reformed.” —Ocasio-Cortez

Demo-gogues: “Most Americans don’t want the conservative agenda that we’re now seeing, the extreme agenda that we’re seeing in Washington. In fact, it is precisely for that reason that they have to interfere with democracy, with things like voter suppression or clinging on an Electoral College that overrules the will of the American people. It is precisely because the American people, by and large, don’t want what they’re selling. … They are relying on manipulations of our political structure in order to keep their agenda in play.” —Mayor Pete Buttigieg

Race bait: “I’m saddened that the beautiful cathedral in France was damaged. But this is a prime example of privilege. … I’m also saddened that Black churches in Louisiana were burned down. I’m sure they held significance as well. They were barely acknowledged.” —Cincinnati councilwoman Tamaya Dennard

And last… “Where’s the outrage for the pressure that we put on a 17-year-old to borrow $100,000 [for college]? So much of that pressure comes from their mom and dad. It’s well-intended, but it’s kind of tragic. And where’s the outrage for the guidance counselors who continually say the best path for the most people just happens to be the most expensive? And the politicians and the lobbyists who exacerbate the same myth and the employers who still insist on only interviewing people with a four-year degree? … College is expensive because we’ve freed up an unlimited pile of free money and told an entire generation they were doomed to fail if they didn’t borrow it, and that’s happened in every single tax bracket, not just the top one. … Seven million jobs are available now. Most of them don’t require a four-year-degree. They require training. And yet we’re obsessed, not really with education, you know. What we are obsessed with is credentialing. And so people are buying diplomas. And they’re buying their degrees. It’s a diploma dilemma, honestly. It’s expensive. It is getting worse. It’s not just the kids holding the note. It is us.” —Mike Rowe

Not to beat a dead horse into the ground, but.....
This is the best summary I have read obliterating item by item the breathless conspiracy theories we have been forced to endure for the last couple of years, plus. Well worth a skim of the facts.highlighted in yellow. The Conclusion after the itemized exhaustive list:

“THE NATURE OF OUR POLITICAL DISCOURSE is that nobody ever needs to admit error because it is easy to confine oneself to strictly partisan precincts where people are far more interested in hearing what advances their agenda or affirms their beliefs than they are hearing the truth. For that reason, I doubt that anyone who spent the last three years pushing utterly concocted conspiracy theories will own up to it, let alone confront any accountability or consequences for it.

“But certain facts will never go away no matter how much denial they embrace. The sweeping Mueller investigation ended with zero indictments of zero Americans for conspiring with Russia over the 2016 election. Both Donald Trump, Jr. and Jared Kushner – the key participants in the Trump Tower meeting – testified for hours and hours yet were never charged for perjury, lying or obstruction, even though Mueller proved how easily he would indict anyone who lied as part of the investigation. And this massive investigation simply did not establish any of the conspiracy theories that huge parts of the Democratic Party, the intelligence community and the U.S. media spent years encouraging the public to believe.

“Those responsible for this can refuse to acknowledge wrongdoing. They can even claim vindication if they want and will likely be cheered for doing so.

“But the contempt in which the media and political class is held by so much of the U.S. population – undoubtedly a leading factor that led to Trump’s election in the first place – will only continue to grow as a result, and deservedly so. People know they were scammed, that their politics was drowned for years by a hoax. And none of that will go away no matter how insulated media and political elites in Washington, northern Virginia, Brooklyn, and large West Coast cities keep themselves, and thus hear only in-group affirmation while blocking out all of that well-earned scorn.”

Are you asking me to go out and find a left handed wind shifter, a jackalope, killer bunnies, a $500 dollar bill, a unicorn, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, or Hedgehogs that Stand on Two Feet and are Super Fast and Can Talk? I will try, but so far all I could come up with is this:

George. It is a straw man. All of the left’s arguments are state men. Racist white men. Homophobes on the right. Russia collusion. Now obstruction. Conservative men hate women. Lol. Create a straw man and beat him up.

AP is totally biased. My takeaway is Trump is exonerated. AP and the media and Mueller would not know about that private discussion if Trump imposed Executive Privilege or his attorney-client rights. But he decided to give everything to Mueller and this is the payback? Disgusting. Trump is the most transparent President ever. Now we need to go get the deep state scum that started the hoax and put them in jail for life. Obama and all of them.
