If Donald Trump accuses an individual of malfeasance without evidence, it is almost a certainty either he or someone associated with him has in fact committed that very same malfeasance to a greater degree.

No offence, but Meddlin' with the mid-terms?

I think Discrediting the Investigation would be more to the overall point 'round now.

But for funny I like Un-N-Out Burger.

This covers pharmaceutical R&D in the experimental trial phase, not magic crystals and anal bleach.

Still trying to milk the spy cow...
"Clearly, there's still cause for concern that still needs to be looked at," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters.

Sanders was responding to Rep. Trey Gowdy's (R-S.C.) comments that "the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do" by having a confidential source speak with Trump campaign associated who were suspected of having contacts with Russians during the 2016 election.

My favorite part? This...
In order to justify Trump's belief the FBI acted improperly, Sanders cited the dismissal of the bureau's deputy director Andrew McCabe.

McCabe was forced out of the agency in part over watchdog report blaming him for a media leak about the Hillary Clinton email probe, and not the Russia investigation.

"Certainly, the president has concerns about the overall conduct of the FBI," Sanders said.

"They helped us, so it stands to reason they were secretly helping Obama/Clinton the entire time..."

When bullshit is all you really got then it's not surprising. Nevertheless, that doesn't lessen the rolling day to day stench and shock of it all.

Just because they're terminally ill does not mean human testing is ethical.

Luckily this is not technically what that is, and I don't see very many issues with letting people add to their already comically large hospital bills to gain the remote chance their loved one could be saved.

This administration is one big 1984 cosplay. We already have the Two Minutes Hate with Emmanuel Goldstein Hillary Clinton, and We Were Always Having A Summit With North Korea. Doublethink was just the latest update. Soon there's going to be Trump Room 101.
