When you look at the big picture of how Trump has either leaned on, or directly asked top officials in the investigation into Russia’s interference in our 2016 presidential election for their loyalty or to help him out in some way, the pattern of behavior becomes quite clear. Trump wants the FBI and United States intelligence apparatus to function as his own personal arm of protection. He clearly does not view these officials as that which they are supposed to be – independent of partisan or personal influence on the part of the president – and wants them to do his bidding, which in this case is clearly to obstruct the Russia investigation.
There’s the expression “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all…” – but I don’t always agree with that. People like Carson need to be called out for the bullshit they constantly spew. Take your pick from basically any issue facing America, and you can bet Dr. Carson has said something completely idiotic about it.
From his tactless Monday-morning quarterbacking of the victims of the Umpqua Community College shooting, to people going into prison straight and coming out gay, to denying evolution, to saying that Obamacare is the worst thing to happen to this nation since slavery, and his belief that Jews might very well have averted the Holocaust if they had been armed. Carson is a seemingly nonstop supply of stupid.
