The Washington Post has an opinion piece Monday arguing that, “While the Russians attacked, Trump looked the other way.”
Wait up … outlets like the Washington Post have been telling us for two years that the Russians were colluding with Donald Trump in their attacks, so why would he look the other way?
Brit Hume wondered if any editors at the Post noticed the complete absence of the person who told Russian President Vladimir Putin to “cut it out” when it came to hacking candidates’ email accounts and tampering with the 2016 election.
The man who was actually President when the attack occurred is never mentioned in this amazing article. Note the huffing and puffing, though, about a President’s duty to “preserve, protect and defend the constitution.” Did no editor even notice? https://t.co/MFPy4Lm9cg

Unbelievable, last line from the article, “During the 2016 election, American democracy was under Russian attack. Candidate Trump encouraged it. When it was over, President Trump did nothing about it.” …..not one mention of the lack of response from Obama DURING!!! Repulsive!

All can agree that these events on BHO's watch, cannot be "inherited" by any subsequent POTUS.

WTF? Are they serious? The man wasn’t even the president. The media is so backwards. They say Trump stood aside as Russia attacked our elections while Obama was president. At the same time, they say this is Obama’s economy ???

No Obama looked the other way ….

No surprise from the Post.

Most Post readers wont connect those dots and the article will make readers think badly of President Trump. Those who do connect the dots won’t look badly at the Post because they know the Post is working hard to smear the president and that’s what they want the Post to do.

The post is too buried in their own propaganda to admit they are complicit in the attack on a duly elected president

No kidding. That’s a pretty tone-deaf ear.

"Did no editor even notice?" I hope that is a rhetorical question. This is the Washington Post. Of course an editor noticed. And what he saw was exactly what he wanted to see. I hope we all know that by now.

The editor not only noticed, they made sure it was published this way

It appears the coup attempt is still ongoing and I hope the Department of Justice steps in and puts an end to this endless witch hunt conducted by elitist sore losers who care more for their own power than they do the nation.
