“Cover-Up” Becomes the New Russian Collusion
If there’s one backhanded compliment you could pay to the modern Democrat Party, it’s that they can pivot on a dime. The pathological Democrat liars – both the ones in office and the ones on cable news – have already forgotten that they spent the past two years claiming to have direct evidence of “Russian collusion.”
Now that the Mueller Dossier has proven that there was no Russian collusion by Donald Trump, the Trump family, the Trump Organization, or indeed, by anyone in America, the Democrats have instantly pivoted to a new narrative:
Trump is committing a “cover-up.” The collusion that President Trump committed with his bosom buddy Vlad Putin was so sophisticated that it was undetectable, and therefore Trump must be covering something up?
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi kicked off this current phase by telling a room full of reporters, “We believe this president has engaged… in a COVER-UP!” Not a single reporter in the room jumped up and asked, “A cover-up of what?”
Instead of practicing journalism, that simply became the new talking point. MSNBC and CNN endlessly repeated it: Nancy Pelosi accused Trump of a cover-up and boy, did that make him mad! He’s so mad he looks guilty! He must be covering something up!
This childishly transparent tactic started before Donald Trump was even selected as the Republican nominee in 2016. Anyone remember the David Duke debacle?
David Duke was a former leader of the Ku Klux Klan back in the 1980s. He’s about as politically relevant as discarded toenails. The only time David Duke is ever mentioned by the media is during Republican presidential primaries, when the media suddenly asks every Republican candidate if they will renounce David Duke.
This is curious, since the only people David Duke ever endorses for office tend to be Democrats. He endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016. This year, he’s been singing the praises of one of the Democrats’ new freshman darlings, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MI).
Duke thinks that the Somali Muslim congresswoman has a really hot take on the “filthy Jews.” It’s funny how the media never seems to ask Hillary Clinton or Ilhan Omar to renounce David Duke.
Anyway, as Trump was shaking up the 2016 election, he refused to play along with any of the leftwing media’s traditional dirty tricks. When reporters asked Trump if he would conduct the ritual renouncing of David Duke, Trump’s response was basically, “Who?”
This caused reporters to have fits on air and prompted them to write headlines like, “Trump warmly embraces the KKK.” It was complete and utter fiction, but every single news outlet was suddenly obsessed with the fact that Trump would not renounce David Duke.
Trump’s point was, “Why should I have to renounce this random person who you only mention once every four years?”
Trump didn’t react the way they wanted him to, and therefore he must have been guilty of something. It was like the media’s responses to Brett Kavanaugh.
“Look how mad he is after we falsely accused him of gang rape! Does he really have the right temperament to be a Supreme Court Justice?”
When Pelosi called the border crisis a “manufactured crisis” back in January, that phrase was suddenly repeated hundreds of times on CNN and MSNBC. Reporters and anchors were not quoting Pelosi. They themselves were calling the border crisis a “manufactured crisis.”
It just happened again when Attorney General Bill Barr refused to testify before the Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee.
Pelosi called that a “constitutional crisis.” According to Newsbusters, the term “constitutional crisis” was repeated 386 times over a four-day span in May on the network news channels.
Now the big phrase du jour is “cover-up.” While most of the “cover-up” claims are as elusive as House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) “direct evidence of Russian collusion,” others are creative enough to claim that Trump is engaging in a cover-up for not releasing his tax returns.
What is he really covering up? No one ever says.
He’s just doing it. He’s engaged in a cover-up.
These are the same people who yawned when the Clinton Foundation received hundreds of millions of dollars in foreign donations from countries that then lobbied and won sweet weapons contracts from the Hillary Clinton-run State Department.
If anyone tries to tell you President Trump is engaged in a cover-up, ask them exactly what he is covering up. And then ask them to be specific. Their answer should tell you everything you need to know.
