Republican Excuses

As the Trump/Russia scandal evolves, I’ve noticed that the GOP talking points follow a pattern:

  1. The latest development is “fake news”
  2. People are not interested in this, typically expanded by, “When I meet with my constituents back home they never have questions about this.” and “The real questions you should be asking are about the economy and infrastructure and Obamacare’s failure …” Often the GOPsters are asked a question and they respond with “The real question is …(another question that they prefer to answer).
  3. But what about Hillary? When new developments are unpleasant the Repubs go back to their comfort place. Why have question about Russians when the media didn’t question Hillary selling uranium to the Russians and what about Loretta Lynch?

It is nice to always have the Clinton comfort place to go back to.
