“A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.”
The mainstream media is doubling down on its Trump-Russia hoax even though the ruse has repeatedly blown up in their faces due to lack of evidence.
After failing to pin the collusion fantasy on President Trump, the left-wing media is now targeting Donald Trump Jr. in the hopes they can finally bring the president down. Good luck with that.
The faux-controversy erupted after the New York Times gleefully heralded that Don Jr., Trump adviser Jared Kushner, and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort had met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June 2016, shortly after Trump clinched the GOP nomination.
Veselnitskaya had reportedly promised dirt on Trump’s then-rival Hillary Clinton. The only problem was, she had nothing. Don Jr. admitted that he took the meeting because he was interested in what Natalia Veselnitskaya had to say.
“Obviously I’m the first person on a campaign to ever take a meeting to hear info about an opponent,” he wrote sarcastically on Twitter Monday. “Went nowhere but had to listen.”
Anti-Trumpers immediately pounced on the New York Times report to suggest that the meeting was evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. But where’s the beef? As usual, the breathless NYT report turned out to be a big nothing burger.
No one would turn down a meeting that promised damaging info on a political opponent during a heated race. Just ask Hillary Clinton. Hillary’s allies colluded with the Ukrainian government to help her win the 2016 election, Politico reported:
Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election.
And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers. The Ukrainian efforts had an impact in the race, helping to force Manafort’s resignation.
The Clinton camp also colluded with Chinese officials before the election:

Where was the outrage over Hillary Clinton’s collusions with Ukraine and China?
And why did the media ignore her lucrative self-dealings with Russia when she was secretary of state? The utter hypocrisy of liberal media would be funny if it weren’t so damaging to the country.
As Donald Trump Jr. lamented: “It’s sad that the left today would rather see America suffer and fail than to see it succeed with @realDonaldTrump at the helm.”
