Given the massive leftist hullabaloo surrounding Donald Trump and his alleged Russian connections, you would think that the President would be doing everything in his power to dispel this democratic diatribe.
Let’s put the situation into a context that even the densest democratic operative can understand.
At 16 years old, we all had that one friend who was always getting you into trouble. Let’s call him, well, Vern Philips for the sake of this analogy.
Vern was a rabble rouser whose parents were far from strict, allowing young Vern to snag a beer here and there, and generally not paying attention when Vern switched from Marlboros to marijuana. The whole town understood that Vern’s probably trouble, and now that the student population of our high school has gotten to the point of experimenting with illicit and illegal substances, Vern has risen to the top of the 9th grade hierarchy due to his accessibility to these experiences.
Your parents may become rightfully concerned that you are experimenting with these substances as well, thanks to a litany of beer cans and joint remnants that you thought were cleverly hidden out behind the old rose bush at the edge of the garden.
When confronted by Pops, you claim innocence. You play dumb. Of course, you have plausible deniability. Your father has never seen the handoff made between you and Vern, therefore, he can’t possibly know beyond a reasonable doubt that you’re toking and chugging in the backyard a couple nights per week.
Now, with your father breathing down your neck, would you be so bold as to invite Vern over to the house for dinner.
Of course not. It blows your cover. It annihilates any hope you had of continuing the charade. It’s literally the opposite of what you would do.
So, in the face of the absurd allegations that Donald Trump is some sort of Russian stooge or Kremlin double agent, why on earth would President Trump invite him to visit the White House?
Quite simply; because President Trump has nothing to hide.
An aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin said Monday that U.S. President Donald Trump invited the Russian leader to the White House when they spoke by telephone last month, but the two countries haven’t started any preparations for such a visit.
Trump and Putin had a telephone conversation on March 20 in which Trump congratulated Putin on winning the Russian presidential election two days earlier. The White House and the Kremlin said at the time the two presidents discussed meeting in person.
Trump specifically invited Putin to the White House during the call, Putin aide Yuri Ushakov told Russian news agencies Monday.
This would either be the most brazen act of international espionage and collusion ever to occur in the United States, or, if we are to consider Occam’s Razor, Donald Trump simply has no reason to hide his willingness to improve relations between the two nuclear superpowers.
We must remember that We The People didn’t elect Donald Trump to capitulate to the whims of the Washington elite or the political putzes of the past. We elected Donald Trump to break the mold, to refocus the government’s energy on the prosperity of the American population, and to inject a new attitude into U.S. foreign affairs.
And that’s exactly what he’s doing, Vern Philips be damned.
