This is why nobody trusts the media, the FBI or the DOJ in this country. It was all "RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA MUH COLLUSION RUSSIA RUSSIA!" And in the end, it was "He cheated on his taxes years before Trump decided to run for office."
And the media still thinks this will somehow bring down Trump. No, really, they do, and they're whipping themselves into impeachment fever on the airwaves, a screeching hysterical soundwave that might actually kill a few folks through it's sheer volume of hatred and bile. They honestly think that Trump's supporters will run away from him now Manafort has been exposed as a tax dodger. Uh, sorry kids, but I don't think you're reading the tea leaves quite right.
This new conservative populist coalition is not the fluke the political class hoped it was. Donald Trump did not cause it, he is just the result of it, so no matter what he does, it continues. It is predicated on them, not him.
The coalition is a strike at not just tone deafness in both Congress and the White House but also high levels of incompetence, negligence and shoddy performance at agencies, as well as inept social services, a bloated and incompetent bureaucracy, endless wars and multinational agreements and treaties that don’t benefit average people.
These voters knew who Trump was going in, they knew he was a thrice-married, Playmate-dating, Howard Stern regular who had the morals of an alley cat. They were willing to look past all of that because of how institutions had failed their communities for three consecutive presidencies.
Right now the value of Trump to the Trump voter is he is all that stands between them and handing the keys to Washington back over to the people inside Washington. That’s it. He’s their only option. You’ve got to pick the insiders or him.Given the sheer corruption at every level of the government, in every department, in every building in Washington D.C., I'll take Trump. You could show me video evidence of Trump banging a porn star while personally ripping a baby from the arms of a border-hopping señorita, and I'd still vote for him over any of the establishment goons who have done their level best to ruin this country. He could be balls deep in Stormy Daniels' ass while screaming racial epithets at the head of the NAACP and I'd still vote for him over anyone the DNC or GOP puts forward. Who you gonna vote for, Jeb? Kasich? Really?
We have illegal aliens killing college students in this country, the DNC is brushing it off as no big deal, just some dead white girl in Iowa, the GOP refuses to build the damn wall, and you think Trump is going to suffer because Paul Manafort filed a fake tax claim years ago?
Hillary Clinton, aka Felonia von Pantsuit, ran an illegal email server out of her house, and committed multiple felonies with it, the FBI didn't even bother to investigate it, and then the FBI lied about it to help cover up Clinton's felonies, and you think any member of the GOP or DNC uniparty is going to be better than Trump? I don't.
Trump will get re-elected because the other option is handing the country back over to the people who hate us, want us to die, and can't wait to once gain profit from their political connections.
That's how you got Trump. And that's how you'll get Trump again.
