The unhinged rhetoric of American liberals and neocons over Donald Trump’s meeting with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki is deeply repugnant and strangely disorienting.....All of this stems from the deep sense of denial on the left side of US politics. Denial and guilt.
Their denial of a truth self-evident – that the Democrats fielded the only candidate in America who could possibly have lost to Donald Trump. Their guilt – that they colluded before or after the fact to rob the electorate of the chance to vote for the candidate most likely to have won them the presidency, Bernie Sanders.
That their sordid maneuvering in the dark was revealed via WikiLeaks is something they have never forgiven.
