Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, July 26, 2019

There must have been a point in the Robert Mueller hearings when the big thinkers of CNN and MSNBC curled up on the floor in fetal positions and began breathing into brown paper bags, trying to remain calm.

Breathe. Collusion. Breathe. "Did not reach a determination as to whether the president committed a crime." Breathe.

Those paper bags popped in and out, out and in, when Democratic media wizard David Axelrod and Harvard Law's Laurence Tribe pronounced the Mueller hearings an unmitigated disaster for their side. That was after the morning session. It didn't really get much better in the afternoon.

Left leaning politicians and pundits spent the evening on TV, jabbering about how many angels can fit on the head of a pin -- but Robert Mueller isn't one of them.

So what happens when liberal Democrats who despise Trump are mugged by the reality that when it comes to the Mueller report, there is no there there? Breathe. Breathe. Stay calm. Breathe.

The left's anxiety attacks are their own affair. It's what happens when people insist on clinging to a fantasy, that Mueller would appear and make their dreams a reality.

Mueller had warned them he wouldn't perform for them. He told them he'd stay with what was in the report, but the Democrats trotted him out anyway, and they cranked up their organ music as if he were their monkey and told him to dance.

And he wouldn't.

Is that Mueller's fault? No, it's their fault.

The Mueller report made it clear that there wasn't enough to prove a conspiracy with the Russians. And without a crime, all the Democrats have is their hurt feelings. And House Speaker Nancy Pelosi knows it.

Tears will be collected and sorted by weight.

Refute anything he says Laura, or STFU.

I thought this was particularly biting:

Mueller seemed lost in his testimony, seemingly unsure of just what was in his own vaunted report about Trump and that mythic conspiracy with Russians.

Mueller seemed confused, asking committee members to restate their questions so that he might grasp them.

"Mr. Mueller spoke haltingly as he testified," sniffed The New York Times, "blunting attacks on him by Republicans but also limiting Democrats' efforts to elevate his words and raising questions about his acuity."

Ouch. His acuity?

When the great gray lady slaps the old gray man, the lady wins.

It's all clearly unfair to Mueller. It was as if you were watching an aging uncle sitting helplessly in a dentist's chair for a root canal, his one foot kicking.

Another FakeLawyer deflection thread.
For a "lawyer" you seem to have a ton of free time on your hands.
What's up with that?

Nomnomnomnom, I made sure to shower because you complained last time you ate my ass.

I'm sure that was incredibly substantive and informative.

Why bother to refute anything? It does no good.

Might as well just make jokes and point and laugh now.

And, that is no way to talk to a lady.

#2 - The Mueller report made it clear that evidence was withheld, destroyed, or secretly communicated and that those under investigation stone-walled the investigation into if Trump collided with Russia. There is SO much circumstantial evidence indicating Trump that only a ------- idiot would not be able to see the lies about contact, intent, and desire by Trump and Co. to coordinate efforts with Russia. The ------- campaign ------- manager sent the ------- campaign polling info to Russians. And if you're so ------- stupid to think Paul Manafort was doing opposition research by sending polling data to a Russian and that the Russian wasn't connected to the Russian government then you have no business spouting your opinion about donkey ---- anywhere.

There's that blind stupid bitter irrational hatred we've all come to know and love from the wackjob left. Good show!

Yeah. Kinda done with wanna be intellectual idiots pretending they have a ------- clue. And you're one of them. Consequently. Does this mean you also believe Manafort gave polling data to a Russian without intending to have that info passed on to Russian troll farms? Color me ------- pink. Please. Do tell us. Why would the campaign manager of a US Presidential campaign give polling data to a Russian citizen with suspected ties to the Kremlin, who have since been document to have trolled the American public with a disinformation campaign? Care to take a stab? Tell me his motive other than to collude with Russia. Can't wait to hear this. Or you gonna run away and complain about the anger that Americans have when their democracy is being undermined by easily duped, simple minded GOP hacks?

Oh. And Happy Friday.

Only an idiot who needs to be spoon fed a very specific conclusion would say something like this.

The report and the testimony were damning. The only surprising thing is that orange man is still in office.

Gavaster,

You need to lay off the expletives. #12 is unreadable due to so many auto-deletes.

The campaign manager sent the campaign polling info to Russians.

You are right. That must be so hard to parse out for you. I will use small words and mono syllables (sorry, big word!) where I can. Will that make it easy to read for you?

So go on, tell us why Paul sent the polling data to a Russian man? (Proper names are okay with you right? This one is easy. Promise. Say "Rush-an". )
