If you have to explain Trump's treasonous behavior

to a football fan, what would be an equivalent betrayal.

So many of the trumpniks have no basis for understanding foreign affairs perhaps a sports analogy might help them understand so that it's not just about libtard tears to them.

Then, what would be the equivalent for a traditional woman?
It is more than he is having an affair, he's stopped paying the mortgage on the home you both live in, instead he's paying for a condo, a car, and building a new home for his mistress and a private school for the mistress's child...while you and your children are without electricity.

1. Read this Twitter thread...

It will help you understand the mindset of the MAGA GOP voter re: Russia.

I'm posting a tweet from the middle of the thread, click to read the whole thing.

2. The goal of Pootie is to foster the rise of the Sino-Russian alliance.

Pootie knows who the 21st century belongs to and that is his close neighbor China. He is doing the dirty work for Xi.

Pootie has to suck China’s ass. If he doesn’t, he will lose Siberia when millions of Chinese move north due to climate change.

This is what the west is up against.

7. No, but they do understand...

... the GOP wants to implement a hierarchy where White Christian Men are at the top. And they want to keep that. And the through leaders, national figures, donors and media voices all get it.

They all fall in line behind those people, and these days that's supporting Russia. Not because they know how it works, but because they feel like it's what everyone they trust is supporting, so it must be right.

4. It's as though everyone on your hometown team has publicly taken bribes

to obviously and repeatedly throw away each game. The kickoffs are strangely advantageous to the other team every time. The tackles that should happen, don't. And the quarterback is throwing the ball to the wrong guy, every time, for the other team to score and win. Even the cheerleaders don't seem too bothered about it.

Think baseball's Black Sox scandal, but much worse. There is no Shoeless Joe this time around.

6. Republican tactics can be summed by the phrase "Smear and Fear."
