HBO’s John Oliver stated that he wouldn’t speculate or bounce to conclusions on Trump’s possession of labeled paperwork however known as out the GOP’s nonsense protection of Trump.
Oliver stated, “I am not going to speculate or jump to conclusions here because there is so much we don’t know, but many seem happy to do that with multiple Republicans likening the FBI to the Gestapo. Fox News trolling through the Facebook page of the judge who approved the warrant and showing a meme of his face on Jeffrey Epstein’s body, and still, others minimizing what Trump may have done.”
John Oliver performed a clip of Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) saying, “There are a number of things that are (air quotes) classified that fall under the umbrella of nuclear weapons that are not necessarily things that are truly classified, and many of them you can find on your own phone.”
Oliver responded, “I don’t know what’s going on with that guy, but the way he’s clearing his throat lets me know that his body is reacting to the nonsense he’s spewing.”
Mike Turner is the same guy who admitted during a CNN appearance on Sunday that he would by no means take labeled paperwork dwelling, so even the people who find themselves defending Trump admit that they might by no means do what he did.
Every element on this story is extra damning than the final, however Democrats aren’t leaping to conclusions or making pronouncements. Republicans have determined that Trump is harmless and have embraced all of Trump’s excuses as they declare that the paperwork have been each declassified and planted.
Republicans are spewing nonsense and attempting to create sufficient of a distraction to make this story go away earlier than it comes again to hang-out them within the midterm election.
