Trump Claims ‘Most Politicians’ Would Commit Treason To Beat An Opponent And All Hell Breaks Loose (TWEETS)

At this point, Donald Trump isn’t even pretending anymore. On Monday, not only did he openly admit that his son colluded with Russia — which would be hard to deny anyway as Don Jr. tweeted evidence — but he made the monumental mistake of claiming “most politicians” (a group that apparently includes himself) would collude with Russia as well.

“Most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don jr attended in order to get info on an opponent,” Trump said. “That’s politics!”

What happened was anything but “politics.” Trump Jr. along with former campaign manager Paul Manafort and Ivanka Trump’s husband Jared Kushner met with a “Russian government lawyer” to get damaging information about Hillary Clinton that they understood to be coming directly from the Russian government. A former KGB counterintelligence officer was present. Traditionally this sort of meeting, which took place inside Trump Tower one floor below The Donald’s office, is called “treason” — not that American politics has exactly many (if any) examples of this in the past.

Though Republicans continue to excuse the fact that we literally have a traitor in the White House, Americans aren’t willing to take this sh*t. Many of them stopped by to let The Donald know what they think of him, his son, and the whole “treason” thing:

It seems pretty clear that most Americans don’t think this is normal. Trump has the lowest six-month approval rating of any president* in 70 years — 36%.

Since assuming office, he has done nothing but repeatedly embarrass our nation and decrease our standing in the world.

This should be over. This should have been over long ago — but Republicans have repeatedly chosen party over country, and until they step up and do what’s right we’re completely and totally f*cked.
