Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

As the old saying goes, politics makes strange bedfellows. But no political alliance today is as strange or frightening as that between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump. With a mutual distaste for NATO, at least one shared political consultant, and huge amounts of Russian money poured into Trump’s businesses, their destinies are undoubtedly intertwined.

To top it off, there is considerable evidence that Russian hackers under Putin’s command carried out the DNC Wikileaks dump in an attempt to discredit Hillary Clinton.

Trump and Putin may very well be closer than anyone would like to think. Could they be texting each other to plan out their world domination… right now?!

DT: Hey. U up?

VP: Yes, Donald. I’m in different time zone. It is 10 in the morning here.

DT: Ah, I get it. You put your country closer to the sun to get more work done. Very smart—reminds me of something I would do.

VP: Indeed… is Manafort w/ you?

DT: He sleeps out in the kennel.

VP: Tell him I miss him when you get a chance. We should all get together in Ukraine really soon.

DT: Idk, Vlad. I think NATO might have something to say about that!

VP: LOL!!! U R 2 much.

DT: I’m dropping truth bombs like you are in Syria!

VP: Omg, stop it. I literally just blew vodka out my nose laughing.

DT: What can I say, I’m a funny guy. The funniest guy.

VP: Maybe the funniest president?

DT: As if #CrookedHillary has a chance… Btw — thanks again for the leak. Huge!

VP: It was my pleasure to take down the villainous Debbie Wasserman Schultz. I say never trust a woman with two last names. She’s almost as bad as Pussy Riot.

DT: 2 bad she quit. I would’ve fired her! U think anyone knows you guys are behind it?

VP: Some reporter got in contact with one of the hackers. He told him he was Romanian.

DT: Nice choice. Now the loser Democrats will think the vampires are behind it.

VP: I like you, Donald. You are strong leader. We should wrestle sometime!

DT: Yeah okay, just don’t mess up my hair.

VP: And could you do me a solid and make sure you pay back my friends? Some investors are getting nervous.

DT: They’ll get their $$$. They made a deal with me, and I make the best deals. The best. Therefore, they made the best deal. Besides, the Mexicans will pay for everything.

VP: Thx Don. Let’s Make Russia Great Again!

DT: It’s “America.”

VP: Oops, autocorrect.

Tucker Carlson's Fox News show is a toxic combination of Infowars-style conspiracy theories and Stormfront-esque xenophobia because that's what network founder Rupert Murdoch, parent company CEO Lachlan Murdoch, and network CEO Suzanne Scott want in their 8 p.m. hour. Fox executives keep making excuses for Carlson's malignant commentary, he correctly interprets their defenses as a green light to be ever more extreme, and all the other stakeholders in the network are willing to go along with it.

The ABC, CBS, and NBC morning and evening news broadcasts have all ignored the revelation that one of then-President Donald Trump's lawyers authored a memo laying out how Trump could effectively pull off a coup.

John Eastman, a member of the conservative legal establishment who worked with Trump's legal team as the then-president sought to overturn the results of the 2020 election, wrote the document in the days leading up to the January 6 counting of electoral votes. His plan lays out various ways then-Vice President Mike Pence and congressional Republicans could use that
