Trump's 'blame Obama' mantra reaches new heights of absurdity

Should we all send Trump copies of the DSM-V with the relevant excerpts underlined? Who has a couple of weekends to spare?

I mean, seriously. What will it take for Republicans to have him committed? Will it finally be enough when he gives the Queen one of the jars from his personal urine collection? Do they have to catch him shuffling around an abandoned dildo factory at 3 a.m. in Kleenex-box shoes? Is there no limit to how crazy this fucker can get?

Exhibit 5,672: Trump’s campaign sent out an “Official Obama-Russia Accountability Survey” today, and if you Cheeto-dust it for Trump’s fingerprints, you’ll find plenty.

Talking Points Memo:

The “survey” – really just a mechanism for gathering voters’ contact information – promises that the President will “personally review” the responses of those who provide their answers (plus their names, emails and cell numbers).

But the framing is pretty rich.

“Obama worked with Russia?” the email subject line reads.

In the Trump campaign’s telling, the “Waste of Money Mueller Report” proved that “Cheatin’ Obama” intentionally declined to prevent Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential contest.

Survey questions include: “Do you believe Obama doing nothing gave Russians the green light to interfere in the 2016 Election?” and “Do you believe Obama did nothing so that Russians would help him with his Disastrous Iranian Nuclear Deal?”


Okay, then. Of course, Obama tried to warn America about Russian election interference, and he was promptly McConnelled. Meanwhile, the Trump campaign “welcomed” the interference and never alerted the FBI or anyone else about Russia’s shenanigans.

And, yeah, Obama wanted Hillary, not Trump, to win — and the Russians were, well, all-in with helping to install a broken puppet.

So this is just a big bowl of crazy.

Must be Thursday.
