The Gob, She Is Smacked!


Courtesy of Thought Criminal:  David Gregory has had it.

DAVID GREGORY: I've run out of words to express my shock and how completely beyond the pale that Donald Trump is as a potential leader of the free world, the commander in chief of our country. This was truly beyond the pale. I mean, he is encouraging Russia, which by all accounts was behind the leak of one of our major political parties, to do more, to go beyond, to try to hack into Hillary Clinton's server to find missing emails to kind of get in the middle of the scandal. It's as if this is a child playing with matches who doesn't understand how badly he and the country can get burned. It's a very serious thing. And I think that the one thing about Trump is that he is very clear for all to see. He is making very clear what he thinks, how he comes by information, and I think, frankly, the lack of seriousness and the intemperance with which he speaks about important national security matters should certainly give people pause. And I don't think there's anybody who would think that was anything but a fair reading of what we've seen here. Vladimir Putin is dangerous. He's been dangerous to a Democratic president, to a Republican president, President George W. Bush who thought he had a better relationship with him. And now this nominee of the Republican Party wants a closer relationship with Vladimir Putin which is what he said. And he thinks that he has the ability to have a better relationship. There's no evidence to believe that's the case.

Finally? Not both sides? What took Gregory so long?

I dare not look outside. Water will be running up hill, and dogs sleeping with cats.

Where's the rest of the media? Still yapping about Clinton's private email server. Even when Clinton is exonerated, the "scandals" never go away.

I understood as recently as this morning the whole "Russia/Wikileaks" e-mail story was too seemingly bizarre for the media to take seriously.

I think it just took a very different turn. 24 hours from now should tell the tale.
