 MUST READ! Jane Mayer writes about how a conservative nonprofit & like-minded media figures built up the story of Joe Biden and his son Hunter in Ukraine. By mid-summer, the Times and other mainstream outlets, most notably Bloomberg News , had more or less knocked down the conspiracy theories BUT by then, Trump was so invested in the counterfactual narrative that he was demanding that Ukraine’s new President provide confirmation of it, as the whistle-blower’s complaint relates. Or, as documents released by Congress earlier this week revealing discussions between his emissaries to Ukraine put it:'Potus really wants the deliverable.' With Trump facing the prospect of impeachment in the House of Representatives, it appears that he is a casualty of his side’s own disinformation.'

Excruciating irony is that Trump rants about corruption, as his vampires hiss at the president of Ukraine, and he initiates corrupt policies throughout the executive office, the state department and the Justice Department.

The irony of this whole Biden thing is that 'a pivotal source of the allegations against the Bidens, for instance, is the Government Accountability Institute, a Florida-based opposition-research operation that was founded by the former Trump political adviser Stephen Bannon !"

Gimme a break... who could write such things as these characters say and do.

and BTW This Monday night at 11 p.m., The President Show returns for its most creatively successful special yet, a 30-minute mockumentary titledThe Fall of Donald Trump.

Inspired by the recent rise of true crime documentaries like The Jinx and Making a Murderer among others, the special projects 12 years into the future to askand ultimately answerthe question: What happened to Donald Trump?

In a series of interviews "conducted between October and November of 2030," the cast of characters that has surrounded Trump on The President Show delivers some of its best performances to date. Part of the joy of the special is the way it slowly reveals where each of these Trump enablers has ended up without the president to cling to for media oxygen and life support.

The DNC wanted Joe Biden and uses impeachment as a huge distraction away from progressive issues.

Meanwhile, Biden antics in Ukraine bring him down in the polls and Warren rises. They shot themselves in the foot. Wall Street will not be happy.
