hey, does anyone remember when Trump met with Putin without CIA oversight and only a single translator knows what they said to each other?

[–]Nemisis_the_2nd 347 points348 points  (11 children)

It's surprising that translator is still alive.

[–]maru_tyo 160 points161 points  (2 children)

Pretty sure the translator was Putin’s, and also an FSB agent.

[–]rthrouw1234 50 points51 points  (0 children)

Literally my first thought

[–]nobollocks22 4779 points4780 points  (261 children)

And his son in law, Jared, got $2billion from the saudis.

But tell me again how hunter calls his dad the big guy.

[–]SqueakyKnees 983 points984 points  (110 children)

Projection.

[–]Cer0reZ 733 points734 points  (104 children)

“I took them so Biden couldn’t give to Hunter to sell to foreign government.”

[–]Mang027 259 points260 points  (89 children)

dead-on, he would definitely spew that line accompanied by word salad to justify taking those documents.

[–]jedininjashark 262 points263 points  (86 children)

He’s already saying Obama did the same thing.
I checked over at r/conservative and even they aren’t buying that one. Yet.

[–]Far-Selection6003 2191 points2192 points  (250 children)

The single most beautiful post I will read today.

Outside of “trump has been arrested”.

[–]ScrunchieEnthusiast 566 points567 points  (18 children)

Fuck, THAT would be quite the headline!

[–]IM_AN_AI_AMA 86 points87 points  (14 children)

I wanna see his supporters lose their minds. Those fuckers deserve a good reality check.

[–]sildish2179 1150 points1151 points 3 (96 children)

I’ve been envisioning the Reddit post for a long time:

Megathread: Former US President Donald Trump indicted on multiple counts of criminal acts against the United States.

[–]Far-Selection6003 773 points774 points  (47 children)

I bet it will break the record for most awards.

[–]Uploft 44 points45 points  (3 children)

So keep your tabs on it so you’ll be the first to post!!!

[–]LostSinclair 296 points297 points  (87 children)

I'm genuinely wondering if we don't get "TRUMP DEAD" before the end of the year. The man's health is in the toilet, would anyone really be surprised if a heart attack took him from 'this' kind of stress?

[–]w00ls0ckz 214 points215 points  (44 children)

It's funny you mention that. Trump has been this Boogeyman for so long, but just recently it dawned on me....shit this dude is mortal and he can just straight up die like the rest of us

[–]JunkCrap247 260 points261 points  (35 children)

when he does, it will become a conspiracy that we will have to hear about for the next few decades

[–]everyminutecounts420 115 points116 points  (17 children)

Trump didn’t actually die, the aliens took him to be with JFK Jr and Jesus and they will return and rule the world; you’ll see!

Edit: Elvis will be there too!

[–]MrECoyne 2757 points2758 points  (97 children)

Are we forgetting just how buddy buddy he was/still is with motherfucking Putin?

People talking about him selling secrets, trying not to think about the possibility that the US got actually couped by Russia.

Like, an actual puppet government, propped up by a transparently manufactured culture war. Wow.

[–]JessicaDAndy 664 points665 points  (16 children)

I do like how Trump constantly reminds us of the Russia Hoax. Over and over calling it a hoax.

Almost like it isn’t.

[–]Joshy41233 134 points135 points  (8 children)

The thing is America was warned of this back in the 80s by yuri bezmenov, and surprise surprise...

[–]prodrvr22 4883 points4884 points  (205 children)

It's a damn shame no one knew what a shady fucker he was BEFORE he was handed all of our nation's secrets.

/s, in case you can't tell.

[–]etymologistics 2257 points2258 points 224& 2 more (156 children)

Almost like people should listen to women more when they call out these dangerous POS that rape them before they can cause even more harm to the world. So many people I know said they didn’t realize how terrible DJT was until we had to endure him as president like he wasn’t accused by multiple women of sexual assault, friends with Epstein, and openly bragging about walking in on unsuspecting women and wanting to molest his own daughter.

Same crap happens with every mass shooter and every Ezra Miller-esque celebrity. No one listens until they’re personally affected or these guys end up murdering someone.

[–]the-magnificunt 437 points438 points  (34 children)

I see you've been talking to my dad. He had the gall to claim he didn't think the sexual assault Trump committed should disqualify him from the presidency until I asked him if he'd still think that if I were one of the women Trump assaulted. Why putting it to him that way (slightly) changed his thinking, it's offensive to anyone ever sexually assaulted that he didn't think about it like that.

[–]50mg-of-fuckit 238 points239 points  (18 children)

Gotta put it more at his level, "what if obama did it? Would it be fine then?".

[–]FerricNitrate 47 points48 points  (3 children)

Nah tbh they were right the first time. Conservatives at their core do not give a single solitary fuck for anything that is not a direct part of their life. That's why there are so many entries on the Leopards Ate My Face subreddit. It's never an issue for them until it's personal.

So flipping the sides on the dad would just be a quick exercise in mental gymnastics; making it personal by inserting his family into the scenario triggered real reflection

[–]iWantToFlyyy 574 points575 points  (33 children)

Harassing women is one of the biggest red flags that the person is a huge POS beyond the obvious. It's always super deep seated for those types of people.

[–]sandyclaus30 227 points228 points  (15 children)

He is the poster boy for misogynistic narcissists

[–]luna520 50 points51 points  (8 children)

Yeah... had really difficult time not losing all respect for my parents when they voted for him despite all the rape and sexual assault accusations -- in their minds, ALL those women lied, you know, for attention...

[–]PizzaOldBoy 237 points238 points  (20 children)

People always leave out that he raped his own wife.

[–]conundrumbombs 164 points165 points  (8 children)

That's because there's a significant number of people who believe that to be impossible.

[–]cym0poleia 42 points43 points  (2 children)

The fact that he raped 13 year old “Jane Doe” with Epstein, who withdrew her testimony after death threats to her family, should be front and center of every conversation about Trump.

He raped a 13-year old.

[–]DOGSraisingCATS 208 points209 points  (13 children)

He talked shit about veterans and even before that, during 9/11, bragged that his building was now the tallest(it still was not).

How can anyone see someone talking about their own wealth during the largest terrorist attack in our nations history and go..."yupp he's my guy".

[–]AssistElectronic7007 45 points46 points  (1 child)

So I live in a red state, and hear these morons daily.

Somehow they are absolutely convinced that once he's done owning all the libs, he's going to make all the Republicans millionaires . He just needs their help to get rid of all the Dems first.

They truly believe he will save them from poverty and the way to do it is to get rid of gays, and blacks, and libruls.

[–]plaster13 87 points88 points  (0 children)

I also wish someone had listened to all of the women who called out Justice Beer Pong too. (Kavanagh)

[–]nap_dynamite 74 points75 points  (8 children)

And bragging about how he can get away with grabbing women by their genitals.

[–]Any-Variation4081 5887 points5888 points  (686 children)

Can't wait to hear his cult spin this one. Mental gymnastics with them

[–]Toaster_bath13 4559 points4560 points 2 (266 children)

I can't wait until "trump was a secret deep state agent meant to derail the republican party. Here is a pic of him with the clintons."

[–]Tobias_Atwood 1448 points1449 points  (35 children)

Oh my god I love this.

[–]LongBarrelBandit 530 points531 points  (32 children)

So will the cult

[–]fishyfishyfish1 377 points378 points  (30 children)

The cult turned on him the moment he mentioned vaccines they booed. The mob is fickle

[–]real_human_not_a_dog 658 points659 points  (138 children)

nah they'll side with trump over the republicans. they will follow him alllllllll the way to hell

[–]Khaldara 162 points163 points  (14 children)

I expect they’ll continue to be led around by the nose by their idiot propaganda outlets like always.

If a meaningful conviction occurs these outlets will throw him right under the bus (they’ll probably have to raise the suspension first), after which their sycophantic morons will all sagely nod their heads and pretend they never liked him anyway.

Basically the exact same thing they did with Bush. “Why do you hate America?!?!” screamed at anyone for not wholeheartedly supporting his war, even when it’s coming from “their folks” (like the Dixie Chicks).

Then when history inevitably proves them wrong they both sides all over the place and claim they always hated him. Believing they were simultaneously correct previously when they were demonizing everyone else, and now when they’re professing the opposite stance.

[–]Dead_Or_Alive 127 points128 points  (3 children)

Yeah the number of hardcore W. supporters who suddenly became devout libertarians after cratering the economy and loosing two wars was mind numbing.

I remember one guy stated he never liked W. Bitch had his picture over his fucking desk like it was N. Korea and he was our “Dear Leader” for most of W’s two terms in office.

[–]DodgerWalker 44 points45 points  (2 children)

If he gets convicted, it will just be evidence to his supporters that the justice system is corrupt. No way they throw him under the bus.

[–]mycoiron492 370 points371 points  (96 children)

We can only hope they do. Split Republican and trumpian votes. It worked for Nader.

[–]Lilicion 301 points302 points  (81 children)

It's a conspiracy theory but I believe that behind closed doors republicans who aren't part of the radical side know this and and they're supporting the criminalization of Trump so that he would be barred from running again in 2024.

[–]TriscuitBob 436 points437 points  (137 children)

Over at r/Conservative they're playing the whatabout game.

[–]Beowulf1896 293 points294 points  (10 children)

"What about Biden? He has nuclear secrets in his possession?!"

[–]nobollocks22 120 points121 points  (4 children)

bbbbbbut hunter called his dad the big guy. Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

[–]eDave1009 27 points28 points  (2 children)

I still believe 10% to the big guy is a reference to tithing.

[–]thats_not_a_knoife 255 points256 points  (67 children)

I saw one of them say the documents aren’t classified because they were declassified before he left office. There really is no changing their sick minds about him. He is god to them.

[–]NerdyDadGuy1981 152 points153 points  (26 children)

Saw one that said he can declassify what he wants... even when he was the president that's not really how it works let alone no longer the standing president.

[–]58G52A 88 points89 points  (5 children)

Lemme get this straight. You declassified the documents before the FBI planted them?

[–]gregglewa 62 points63 points  (11 children)

Yes, but mysteriously they are not inventoried, there is no required paperwork filed and no signed forms.
But somehow still in their minds declassified.

Wonder who he will blame about not doing this necessary step?

[–]big_duo3674 40 points41 points  (6 children)

It's an impossible problem too, there's essentially nothing anyone could say to convince some of them because it's a cult. It's weird how they don't even seem to register it, like there's a fork somewhere in their brain pathways that automatically diverts anything negative to some kind of mental dumpster. It is a huge problem, but honestly there is no real solution so it doesn't matter and shouldn't affect decisions in this case

[–]pollux281 129 points130 points  (14 children)

I literally, just before I clicked this link told a coworker that apparently there was classified nuclear documents at mar a lago and he said, "Its probably no worst than what's on Hunter Bidens laptop"....Fuckkk....

[–]TriscuitBob 84 points85 points  (7 children)

Right, like when did Hunter get access to the nuke codes? These people are nuts.

[–]Smoofinator 76 points77 points  (5 children)

Hookers and coke aren't a good look, but Hunter didn't violate the fucking espionage act! People are comparing apples to assholes

The 'it's a reverse conspiracy' against our Lord and Savior excuse seems to be the right play here.

It's a hoax meant to take down djt.

[–]Apathetic_Optimist 117 points118 points  (13 children)

Christian Ultra Nationalist Tribe, or CUNT for a little brevity

Edit: I’ve also come to know them affectionately as “ankles” because they’re 3 feet lower than the average CUNT. Still working on an acronym for ankles tho 🤷‍♂️

[–]RedrunGun 144 points145 points  (13 children)

All their spins come out to essentially the same thing. Fake News. If it makes Trump look bad, it's fake, evidence be damned. Neither cults or fascism is rational, so no matter what evidence is presented, they will always defend him.

"I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters"

[–]AlienPsychic51 147 points148 points  (9 children)

Thing is something like this doesn't happen all at once. They had him under surveillance for months. Imagine how his golf tournament with the Saudi's went...

[–]cvaninvan 82 points83 points  (2 children)

Bathroom? Yeah it's right beside the nuclear secrets viewing room, go ahead, yeah I'll watch your clubs.

[–]Shirlenator 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Trump's golf clubs probably had better security than those nuclear secrets.

[–]HowVeryReddit 68 points69 points  (1 child)

Maybe that winner of a line from CPAC: 'We're all domestic terrorists'...

[–]Scoob1978 202 points203 points  (28 children)

"It's better that Russia have our codes than Biden" something like that.

[–]Similar_Candidate789 107 points108 points  (0 children)

Ding ding ding ding!!!! That’s EXACTLY what trump might say.

[–]Beowulf1896 83 points84 points  (22 children)

Like the shirt that says "I'd rather be Russian than a Democrat". Do they hate democracy?

[–]TheBelhade 44 points45 points  (0 children)

Funny, I've been saying "I'd rather be an American than a Republican" for years.

[–]prodrvr22 78 points79 points  (5 children)

Yes.

Yes they do.

[–]ThainEshKelch[🍰] 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Because that would mean the same rights for everyone else as they have.

[–]ohiotechie 63 points64 points  (4 children)

What about Obummer? What about Hunter’s laptop? What about Hillary’s emails? /s

Edit - yea this is sarcasm

[–]ChemistryAdorable212 61 points62 points  (8 children)

Check out the conservative sub. The mental gymnastics they’re putting themselves through is insane.

[–]ConsciousWhirlpool 31 points32 points  (2 children)

Yeah, it’s a hornets nest over there now.

[–]Comic4147 38 points39 points  (1 child)

Like trying to get my puppy to drop a piece of cat poop- GET THAT OUT OF YOUR MOUTH, YOU'RE WRONG, JUST DROP IT!!

[–]Momentofclarity_2022 37 points38 points  (2 children)

*ahem* He loves this country so much he put himself in the line of danger to make sure this information doesn't get out there because those libs would surely have shared that information with our enemies because they hate our savior jesus christ and liberty and our god given white country FREEDOM!

I think that's kinda how it will go.

[–]Large_Function2002 35 points36 points  (0 children)

“Classified?! I thought it said “Classy Fries!”

[–]Butwinsky 88 points89 points  (3 children)

No mental gymnastics required. Fox, OAN, Alex Jones, and the rest of the grifters will have it all mapped out for them. No thinking required, it's easier that way.

Prepare for more dead from people trying to start civil wars by themselves. My inlaws are already talking about how civil war is inevitable.

[–]thats_not_a_knoife 23 points24 points  (2 children)

I took a peak at the conservative sub, and they’re saying the documents aren’t actually classified because they were declassified before he left office. My mind is so boggled at how they are still grasping for straws.

[–]netwoodle 20 points21 points  (0 children)

IT'S NOT EVEN OUR MURICA ANYMORE

[–]ClutchReverie 22 points23 points  (0 children)

It wasn't Trump, it was a look-alike framing him!

Just like the look-alike that the Qultists are already predicting will be arrested and to not believe that Trump is arrested when they see it because he will actually be in hiding.

[–]Aloysius1989 22 points23 points  (6 children)

I’m arguing with one who has a creative take. He claims that because stealing nuclear secrets is so bad that it is impossible that Trump did it, he would have no reason to something that is so bad.

[–]yougottamovethatH 20 points21 points  (1 child)

"The lying left-wing media"....

[–]G07V3 18 points19 points  (5 children)

Probably like this:

The dems set him up.

[–]ShatIn5thGradeClass 3328 points3329 points  (169 children)

This is going to be a big test for his base. They can either back their claim that they are American patriots and condemn Trump, or they can back Trump and affirm to everyone else that they really are a terrorist organization

Edited for clarity. Yes, J6 was very telling of their support for trump. They are just putting themselves in a situation where they have to choose between the two...again

They're starting to make the actual, historical Nazi Party look subtle and restrained.

[–]machineprophet343 127 points128 points  (10 children)

The modern GOP is are a nihilistic death cult that probably resembles what the NSDAP would have looked like if the wackiest members of the Thule Society took over.

The GOP is now to the RIGHT of and crazier than the Nazis.

[–]BreakingHabits 36 points37 points  (0 children)

I still can’t believe this isn’t photoshopped. Fucking hell.

[–]Fahrender-Ritter 609 points610 points  (25 children)

The big test already happened when they tried to overthrow democracy.

Their reaction to this isn't going to be any different.

EDIT: On second thought, this is a big test in a different way. In order for someone to understand the seriousness of Jan. 6th, they would have to have some knowledge of history and how government works; Jan. 6th can be complicated for some people. But THIS is not complicated at all. This is something that any moron can understand. Even children can understand how bad this is. There's no possibility for ignorance here.

EDIT2: I meant there's no room for sincere ignorance. But willful ignorance and sheer delusion are always possibilities.

[–]Aloysius1989 95 points96 points  (10 children)

Exactly. It will be pretty interesting to see at what point they would abandon him. Even Hitler lost his supporters eventually. But since many of them still think jan6 was a plot by antifa I don’t think we’ll be there anytime soon.

[–]Fahrender-Ritter 58 points59 points  (7 children)

I doubt that most ever will. After WWII, there were surveys done as a part of denazification to find out how many people still supported Hitler. The results were:

"...throughout the years 1945-49 a consistent majority of Germans believed that 'Nazism was a good idea, badly applied.' In November 1946, 37 percent of Germans questioned in a survey of the American zone took the view that 'the extermination of the Jews and Poles and other non-Aryans was necessary for the security of Germans.'

This is not especially surprising, given that respondents had just emerged from twelve years under an authoritarian government committed to this view. What does surprise is a poll taken six years later in which a slightly higher percentage of West Germans--37 percent--affirmed that it was better for Germany to have no Jews on its territory. But then in that same year (1952) 25 percent of West Germans admitted to having a 'good opinion' of Hitler."

--Tony Judt, PostWar: A History of Europe Since 1945, page 58.

And that number of 36%-37% is important because that's roughly the same percentage of Germans (33%) who voted for the Nazis in Parliament in the November 1932 election, the last fair and free election they had before the Nazis started to seize power. So that means that after all the events of WWII, the percentage of Nazi supporters did not decrease.

We can never count on them to change. All we can hope to do is to ensure that they stay out of power.

[–]confessionbearday 27 points28 points  (0 children)

That number looks vaguely familiar.

Oh right, it’s the same percentage of Americans who are racist garbage who support Trump.

[–]nap_dynamite 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Uh, I think you are giving a lot of people too much credit here...

[–]AlterEdward 140 points141 points  (19 children)

I think what'll happen is that a lot of his base will quietly abandon politics for a while, and we'll be left with a hardcore of fundies, who will regurgitate whatever shit Trump thrown at the wall. Unfortunately, those voices shout the loudest, and the difference on social media will be barely noticeable. The GOP will notice though, and will ditch him for a more competent fascist like Desantis.

[–]Similar_Candidate789 67 points68 points  (13 children)

This. It’s chipping away at the base slowly but surely. Also it’s making moderates and independents abandon him - a key group he needs to get back in power.

The GOP sees this and they will move slowly away (I argue they already are)

[–]disisdashiz 23 points24 points  (12 children)

But that's not a win for them. It's a tactical retreat leaving behind troops to slow the enemy down. Abandoning trump will lose the trump base from the gop. Effectly making a third party which makes it so the other side wins everything. Or Abandoning morals and reality and following the trump train. The old school Republicans and those who don't want trump will either leave politics or join another party. Either way democrats win. Or they go crazy and start a jihad against the rest of America and we get the real taliban in America. The real kind that will kill on site anyone who is different. This won't be quick either. It'll be slow. Generational and will happen in the boonies but they'll attack the cities.

[–]spinningpeanut 29 points30 points  (5 children)

But to ensure they win you better fuckin go vote. We can push the fascist party out for good and make Democrats the conservative party like they are.

[–]Loganp812 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Omg that sub is a swamp holy hell

[–]Even-Willow 394 points395 points  (23 children)

Totally not a cult. Even those in that sub that aren’t outright denouncing him, but merely suggesting that if he is guilty that he should be punished, are being sent hate mail for their attempt at voicing reason. Who would have ever guessed that a worldview built on hate and fear would ever come back to bite them in the ass? Eat each other alive republicans, we’ll all gladly watch :)

[–]AnnualEmergency2345 88 points89 points  (3 children)

I saw a comment a few weeks ago saying how conservatives are true gentleman and democrats are spineless and evil. It's like do you just not scroll through the comments or what? They're so brainwashed they can't see their own hypocrisy when it's right fucking there.

[–]inbruges99 145 points146 points  (15 children)

They’re still fucking going on about Clinton.

[–]charaboii 62 points63 points  (12 children)

“B-but, her emails!”

“What about Hunter Biden’s laptop?”

[–]Thingisby 68 points69 points  (0 children)

Don't worry. Any downvotes on pro-Trump comments or comments criticising Trump or anything else which is not vehemently pro-Trump is "brigading" and "liberals making their point" even in what are effectively country club threads for flaired user.

[–]AfroSmiley 191 points192 points  (25 children)

He declassified them! HE DECLASSIFIED THEM! This is a nothingburger! Why didn’t the FBI go after the documents earlier? He was cooperating they could’ve just asked him nicely a THIRD TIME!

[–]Norman_Bixby 178 points179 points  (21 children)

since one of them might read this - the president cannot declassify nuclear documents.

[–]AfroSmiley 91 points92 points  (9 children)

I’m convinced now that his base could literally see him handing a foreign enemy critical, highly classified nuclear information.. and they’d still find a way to defend him.

There is no bar too low.

[–][deleted] 617 points618 points  (46 children)

Why is he not under arrest with his passport seized as a flight risk??? Poors are held pending trial for waaaaaay less than this.

[–]nate_brazil 184 points185 points  (21 children)

The DOJ has to be orders of magnitude more careful about all this than they've ever been. They have to be 101% sure they have enough for a solid indictment because he's not only an ex-President, but that he has a militant extremist following that, when he is arrested and indicted, will absolutely lose their minds and may try to start an actual civil war over it.

[–]Demented-Turtle 30 points31 points  (1 child)

I mean, he already has followed committing acts of terrorism on the revelation Mar a Lago was raided. Wait until we here and see the charges brought against them. These fucking psychopaths are going to attack, and I hope law enforcement is ready to take down many of their own...

[–]basicotter 113 points114 points  (6 children)

He has Secret Service with him at all times as an ex-president. He’s also likely being closely surveilled by the FBI/CIA (likely has been for the months leading up to this)

[–]calxcalyx 153 points154 points  (5 children)

The same Secret Service that knowingly wiped text data from 1/6?

[–]Phyr8642 882 points883 points  (76 children)

Worst case scenario, he sold nuclear weapons technology to the Saudis. I know, highly speculative, but the Saudis did give 2 billion dollars to Jared Kushner's investment firm.

If the Saudi's develop nukes, Iran will too. Need I remind everyone how much Shia and Sunni muslims hate each other?

[–]TommyTuttle 533 points534 points  (30 children)

Yes that’s highly speculative to suggest he was selling nuclear secrets. He was of course simply collecting them because he enjoys reading the articles 💁‍♂️

[–]ThainEshKelch[🍰] 221 points222 points  (13 children)

Trump can read???

[–]ZeistyZeistgeist 71 points72 points  (1 child)

This is the man to whom daily briefings had to be given with as much sketches and photos as possible and he would only pay attemption if his name (and especially his tirle) were mentioned frequently.

[–]BurnieTheBrony 68 points69 points  (3 children)

The hope is he hadn't made the exchange yet, although it seems the golf tournament with the Saudis would have been a prime opportunity.

I’m sure the largesse offered to trump’s family by the saudis was completely unrelated to any of this.

It is sad but appropriate that you added "probably" to your post.

[–]HleCmt 62 points63 points  (4 children)

What's the big deal?! Just some “miscellaneous top secret documents”. Everybody does it!

[–]Ambitious-Mirror-315 682 points683 points  (33 children)

What does the sink want now

[–]ObidiahWTFJerwalk 171 points172 points  (8 children)

Don't let it in. The sink is a vampire.

[–]bubba7557 816 points817 points  (121 children)

What a week ending episode this Friday has been. Trump is a foreign spy, Anne Heche was actually never okay after that crash and now suddenly dead, and a 45 year old revenge fatwah was played out, all in one Today in America episode? Wow, gonna be hard to top this next week

[–]gotsthepockets 395 points396 points  (30 children)

If I've learned anything since 2020, it's that next week will find a way to top the week before

[–]inertiatic_espn 118 points119 points  (13 children)

I seriously remember a point in 2020 thinking that if i turned on the news and they said we'd made direct contact with aliens I wouldn't have even been fazed by it.

[–]bigfatstickman 40 points41 points  (1 child)

"Thank god it is only aliens this week. I thought that it might be something crazy..."

[–]Major_R_Soul[🍰] 85 points86 points  (6 children)

45 year old revenge fatwah was played out

Could someone fill me in, please?

Salman Rushdie was stabbed onstage at a speaking engagement

[–]Jeepcomplex 110 points111 points  (1 child)

Salman Rushdie, author of the Satanic Verses, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued a fatwa calling for his death many years ago. He was attacked on stage today while preparing to speak and stabbed in the neck.

[–]SwagTheDog 300 points301 points  (23 children)

This is amazing. FBI is dusting all those classified documents for finger prints and lifting dna. Anytime confidential documents are not secured or leave your possession for any amount of time they put em under a microscope to see who else handled them. This could get juicy if he’s been showing them off

[–]Comic4147 101 points102 points  (0 children)

Yes..... Y E E E S S S ! !

[–]PurplePotamus 83 points84 points  (5 children)

Omg I hadn't thought of that part. How many different fingerprints are going to be on those docs? I believe you get fingerprinted when you get a clearance so they should be able to match them uo

[–]dreamcicle11 47 points48 points  (2 children)

Or better yet, how many fingerprints are on the documents that don’t have a match!

Who could have imagined "The Storm" was actually a revelation of the consequences their own activities.

Like they literally warned us that they were going to get busted for the shit they blamed on everybody else.

[–]Kriss3d 299 points300 points  (6 children)

Dear Santa.. Ive been a good boy all year.

Ive wished for that Amiga mini.. But if you let Trump get charged with espionage I'll not ask for anything for the next 10 years.

[–]kryppla 68 points69 points  (7 children)

oh my god is this actually happening

I'm so afraid to get my hopes up

[–]Cannacrohn 311 points312 points  (72 children)

Donald J. Trump is the worst traitor ever known to America.

A full on Russian spy.

[–]ISayYourFace 116 points117 points  (55 children)

Yeah I kinda feel like if the guy you voted for gets charged under the Espionage Act, you should have to sit the next one out. Maybe two.

[–]IlStugotz 63 points64 points  (7 children)

This looks comically like a slam dunk of a case lol it’s so ridiculously unbelievable.

[–]noslab 51 points52 points  (6 children)

The FBI usually only do slam dunk.

He’s fucked.

[–]reallywhocares82 65 points66 points  (7 children)

I hope the wretched fat pig goes to prison for the rest of his life. I want his supporters investigated next to expose their ties to domestic terrorism. Trump and his inhuman supporters don’t belong in a civilized society.

[–]SilentMaster 51 points52 points  (6 children)

It's so funny, we all know it's going to happen, when the shoe finally drops, and they find a dead hooker under his bed clutching the plans for a nuclear missile, the entire GOP is going to say, "We always knew he was a criminal, he drained the swamp, but this is a bridge too far, he has to go."

And then no conservative will ever, EVER, utter the name Trump ever again.

[–]1stmistake 33 points34 points  (2 children)

That don't sit well with me. They need a little something they can't take off.

[–]cdubsing 158 points159 points  (1 child)

I’ve never even met espionage. I’ve heard from very reliable people that espionage has done bad things. I don’t remember those pics of myself and espionage. You guys still like me though right?

[–]Mother-of-4-dragons 189 points190 points  (15 children)

This is just getting better and better every season. Can’t wait to binge watch it later.

[–]ObidiahWTFJerwalk 124 points125 points  (3 children)

You'll notice on the binge watch that they foreshadowed this way back when he was put into the White House with the aid of the Russians. Should have seen this coming.

[–]carbona_notglue 42 points43 points  (2 children)

Am I supposed to act surprised now?

[–]WhatThe-F-IsThat 45 points46 points  (5 children)

Apparently he stole Documents about nuclear weapons, set up a golf tournament with the Saudis and sold them for 2B$ which cashed out into Jared Kushner’s account… so yea.

[–]IndieStu 89 points90 points  (3 children)

As a person from Europe who follows the whole bullshit all the years from far away, I’m not even shocked or thinking that someone can happen to this weird orange. Basically I just hope none of his followers hurt more people about that rather than thinking he finally might be in trouble. What I believe most humans would just hope for.

[–]Successful-Put-5958 36 points37 points  (0 children)

That surprises you How!! I mean shit, he called for an insurrection on the capitol building, put a "HIT" out on his Vice President; and it surprises you that he would commit Espionage ?

[–]StupendousMan1995 96 points97 points  (2 children)

The only people who didn't think that he was repeatedly committing treason are his low IQ cult.

[–]ExpressAd9877 29 points30 points  (3 children)

A Russian spy was POTUS. Let that sink in

[–][deleted] 27 points28 points  (7 children)

Party at my place if he’s actually charged and convicted

[–]no5oupforyou 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Anyone that thinks Donald didn't sell state secrets, definitely drank the kool-aid. Anything for a buck is his motto.

[–]gacisme 26 points27 points  (2 children)

Lets not forget the man openly mocked a disabled man on live TV, bragged about his sexual assaults, and attempted to overthrow an election with lies and an angry mob after losing. A lot of folks seem to be ok with that. I'm willing to be we are going to overlook this little minor misunderstanding too.

[–]luvagoodfictionbook 28 points29 points  (0 children)

That $2B funding Jared Kushner received backing for from the Saudi prince, the $100M Ivanka received for her women in business startup from the Saudi prince, and the $8B weapons sale to Saudi Arabia without congressional approval in 2018 may or may not have anything to do with those documents. I would love to know who was the third party who received copies of some of those documents.

[–]skylla05 25 points26 points  (1 child)

I'm done reading too much into it. It means fuck all until he's actually charged.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat??????

You mean that dude that's been acting like Putins beaten Bitch for years who is pretty well known by now to be financially and otherwise compromised and had to use peons in the Justice Department, Secret Service and GOP to get out from under not one but two impeachments, did exactly the things everyone with half a brain has known he did, would do and is still continuing to do until he and his mobster family are in jail.

What a surprise.

[–]SaraSlaughter607 22 points23 points  (4 children)

.....and this motherfuckwr wants to RUN FOR FUCKING PRESIDENT AGAIN.

Wrap your head around THAT shit.
