|Source: The New Democrat- Bill Maher, on Banana Republicans|
Watching CNN yesterday afternoon as I was working ( of course ) they were obviously covering the release of the Devin Nunes memo and they had Robert Baer on who was a career CIA intelligence officer before he retired several years ago that Donald Trump probably sees as some Marxist-Communist member of the so-called Deep State. Communists working for the CIA is about as common as Muslims and Latinos voting for Donald Trump in Alabama.
But that being said, Bob Baer was on CNN yesterday talking about the memo and he called it a piece of trash. Now, if he was part of HBO's special coverage of the Nunes memo or Showtime, he probably would've called it a piece of shit, because that is exactly what it is. All it is, is Trumpian talking points about the FBI and broader intelligence community in America and this conspiracy theory that Donald Trump and his supporters have that the intelligence community is out to get President Trump. When Bill Maher calls these Trump supporters of the House Banana Republicans, he ain't lying. These House Republicans on the Intelligence Community of all places, see themselves now as defense lawyers and operatives for the White House.
These intelligence reports and in Representative Devin Nunes's case the ( Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee ) unintelligent memo that a seventh grader could've edited for their parents and found real holes in it, is nothing more than RNC/White House talking points. That says you have to back Presdent Trump at all costs even if it makes you look like an idiot, or worse a liar, worse than that a corrupt defense lawyer. This is not one of those partisan squabbles that you see all the time in Washington especially in Congress with Republicans and Democrats looking like they're fighting each other and accusing each other of cheating in a pickup basketball game or at recess. This is a Republican inter party squabble between House Republicans teaming up with the White House, against the Republican led and mostly Republican intelligence community. Washington Republicans vs. the CIA and FBI.
Representative Devin Nunes who has one of the most important jobs in all of Congress as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is nothing more than a hack defense lawyer for President Donald Trump. Nunes is a man that the House of Representatives is supposed to rely on for fair and accurate intelligence reports and oversight of the intelligence community. But what does he do instead? Go out of his way to make the intelligence community unfairly look bad because they have negative information about President Trump and his presidential campaign and it now looks like they were working with Russians to get Donal Trump elected President. So they've decided they have to make the intelligence community look bad at all costs so President Trump doesn't take them down in 2018.
