Every now and again, the mainstream media comes to its senses. It’s not all that often, but when it does occur, it is certainly worthy of propagating.
Such is the case today, after we all witnessed whatever it is that truly occurred in Helsinki, Finland. The meeting that occurred between President Donald Trump of the US and President Vladimir Putin of Russia was certainly something, with this writer finding it a bit difficult to truly put his finger on.
The left, of course, is crying “treason”, and loudly.
Trump says it’s unpatriotic for Kaepernick and other NFL players to kneel during the anthem. That seems very ironic considering the amount of time Trumps spent on his knees in front of Putin at the #TreasonSummit.

Some even suggested something far more sinister afoot:

At least one mainstream source is pushing back, however, admitting that the liberal left may have jumped directly to “treason” due to their overwhelming and blinding hatred of the President.
The Helsinki summit meeting between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin was rich in opportunity for those who still cling to the belief that Trump owed his election to Russian meddling. #TreasonSummit was trending on Twitter, giving rise to all manner of wild accusations. Frothing former CIA director John Brennan called out the president for meeting one-on-one with Putin, asking “What might he be hiding” from national security adviser John Bolton, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, White House chief of Staff John Kelly and the American public?
Of course, Mr. Trump used the same personal touch at the summit with Kim Jong Un, and we know that the president places great value in establishing these types of direct ties. But the conspiracy theorists would have us think Trump and Putin were locked in a room hatching schemes, which shows how childish and unserious the president’s critics have become.
And, to further their point…
The mere fact of a U.S. president seeking better relations with Russia should not be controversial. President Barack Obama certainly did his best, blaming the George W. Bush administration for souring relations between the two powers. We had Hillary Clinton’s famous 2009 “Russian reset,” complete with a mistranslated red button stolen from a hotel jacuzzi.
