Trump Gets HAMMERED After Tweeting That ‘Intelligence’ Has No Place In Politics (TWEETS)

If there is one thing that is certain, it’s that at no point in a presidency riddled with white supremacists, xenophobes, Christofascists, assorted racists, and a big orange buffoon as Grand Wizard of it all, will “intelligence” come into play in any fashion — but Donald Trump’s “unpresidented” attacks on our intelligence agencies have caused many to question how much he knew about Vladimir Putin’s hack of our election.

In Trumpland, however, it is perfectly fine that a man The Donald once publicly wished would become his “new best friend” (the tweet is still up), Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, personally spearheaded not just a hack of Trump’s political opponents but an aggressive propaganda and fake news campaign aimed at installing someone they can clearly control in the Oval Office. Even when presented with evidence of the hack, Trump has gone the route of repeatedly assaulting those who uncovered the information rather than the foreign leader who directly meddled in our election — all while praising the guy who masterminded the attacks on our nation.

On Sunday, Trump tweeted out a quote from his campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, that pretty much sums up his entire administration. “We certainly don’t want intelligence interfering with politics and we don’t want politics interfering with intelligence,” Conway said in what will surely be a heavily-quoted interview for at least the next four years.

If there’s one thing Trump — who loves the “poorly educated” very much — has never allowed to come close to his politics it’s “intelligence,” be it a measurement of intellect or evidence that his nice Russian friend personally orchestrated an attack on the United States. The Twitter community, of course, was there to let him know it:

Donald Trump seems willing to attack anyone who threatens to uncover information related to Russia’s hack of our election — the multiple intelligence agencies that have all come to the conclusion that Putin personally led the effort, the American people (most of whom are “fools” and “stupid people” according to Trump), the media who dares mention anything he does that is unethical (which is a lot), and pretty much everyone but the former KGB Lieutennant Colonel who helped plant him in a position where he can (and has said he intends to) be very friendly to Russia.

Apparently, attacking the intelligence agencies that uncovered uncomfortable information about your new bestie is how you “make America great again.”
