In the never-ending saga known as #RussiaGate, it seems as though time itself has slowed to nearly a crawl as we await the verdict in the first trial surrounding the probe.
Robert Mueller has certainly had his hands full, chasing down loose leads and Trump pals that may or may not have any supposed “dirt” on the President, one by one, and charging them with petty process crimes in some legal bullying nonsense. All the while, the American people have grown ever more suspicious of Mueller, and for a number of reasons. One of the most poignant realities that has had the American people on their toes is the unkempt bias of a number of agents working for Mueller, who had openly expressed their hope of “stopping” Donald Trump from being President.
One such agent, Peter Strzok, was rightfully removed from the Mueller team and subsequently fired from the FBI. This led to a bizarre stunt in which the former agent turned to crowdfunding in order to make up for “lost income”, raking in hundreds of thousands of dollars in just a matter of hours.
The stunt was so peculiar that even far-left The Daily Show host Trevor Noah couldn’t ignore it.
The Comedy Central host played a news segment that reported on Strzok setting up the GoFundMe Page to collect money for his legal bills and then increasing the amount of money that he needed to raise on the page from $150,000 to $350,000 to $500,000.
“Okay, first off, this is some bullsh*t we have to address about GoFundMes in general,” Noah said. “How do people say, ‘this is the amount I need,’ and then change the amount when they get it. That’s not a thing.”
“Because seriously, half a million dollars on a GoFundMe just for hating Donald Trump,” Noah continued. “There are cancer patients on that site that are like, ‘Hey! We hate him too, can you help me pay for my treatment?'”
We may not always agree with Trevor Noah, but hey, when you’re right, you’re right.
