Well, it’s happening: Donald Trump’s new press secretary has finally spoken out about the plan to go after Hillary Clinton. While attempting to avoid questions surrounding that cute little operation headed by Vladimir Putin (whom Trump says he wishes was his “best friend”) to hack our election and effectively install a foreign-controlled puppet as President, Sean Spicer deflected by reminding everyone they still plan to do that whole “lock her up” thing.
Asked if The Donald agrees with seventeen U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia was behind the hacks of Trump’s political enemies, Spicer reminded everyone that he considers the real issue to be that Hillary Clinton was informed, unsolicited, of a debate question ahead of time. The person responsible was sacked, and everyone moved on with their days — except, of course, Team Trump, who consider this one minor thing to be much, much worse than colluding with a brutal dictator to influence the U.S. election.
“Why aren’t we talking about the other influences on the election? Why aren’t we talking about Hillary Clinton getting debate questions ahead of time?” Spicer demanded. “No one is asking those questions. The fact is that everyone wants to make Donald Trump admit to certain things. When do we talk about the other side, which is what did Hillary Clinton do to influence the election? Is she being punished?”
The story, in fact, was talked about heavily in the media, and on social media — including by Trump, who still occasionally pulls out a golden stick and beats that dead horse from time to time.
Recently, The Donald said that we should “Get on with our lives” rather than worry about him clearly being in the pocket of a dangerous man who murders journalists and is the human rights equivalent of Hannibal Lecter because Trump is a hacking expert who knows more than the CIA and Jesus combined:
“I know a lot about hacking. And hacking is a very hard thing to prove. So it could be somebody else. And I also know things that other people don’t know, and so they cannot be sure of the situation.”
Trump, as with his secret plan to defeat ISIS, refused to say what he knows — though we’re sure he knew a lot about what was going on, given the fact that he spends so much time praising Putin these days — though he did promise to drop that information at a later date.
Recently, because Trump can’t be trusted to handle anything involving Russia in the slightest, President Obama expelled 35 suspected Russian intelligence operatives from the United States. Putin, as expected, said he would wait to respond when Trump is President.
While Spicer did not explain how Clinton “influenced the election” by knowing a debate question ahead of time, one thing is clear: Team Trump is serious about finding some way to “punish” her.
