Last night, as the east coast was going to bed and the sun was setting across the rest of the country, breaking news was also setting on our TV screens. The New York Times (which incidentally is not failing) published that contrary to what your Chosen One has screeched for 18 months, he knew that Russia had hacked into our systems and had moved aggressively to sway the election in his favor.
From the article: The evidence included texts and emails from Russian military officers and information gleaned from a top-secret source close to Mr. Putin, who had described to the C.I.A. how the Kremlin decided to execute its campaign of hacking and disinformation.
Present in that meeting - a full two weeks before the inauguration - were your country's top intel officials - John O. Brennan, the C.I.A. director; James R. Clapper Jr., the director of national intelligence; Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency and the commander of United States Cyber Command, and James Comey, then FBI director. (Incidentally, none of these men are in those positions now.)
Trump was presented with hard evidence, not just the Steele Dossier (Comey also presented that to him privately that day). Yet that same day he went before the cameras and began what is now an 18 month siege of obfuscating, denying, screaming FAKE NEWS!, and flat out lying.
And right down the line, you have not wavered in your support of this categorically unfit specimen.
You did not care when he rode down his escalator and called Mexicans rapists. That wasn't the moment.
You laughed when he mocked a disabled reporter. That wasn't the moment.
An innocent woman was run down and killed by a neo Nazi and he called them "some very fine people." That wasn't the moment for you.
You great patriots heard him, watched him mock John McCain, a former POW and sitting Senator. Yet, you did not waver. That wasn't the moment.
You heard him on tape talk about grabbing women by the pussy, but you wrote it off as locker room talk. That wasn't the moment.
Nearly twenty women have come forward with stories of being molested by Trump. You didn't care. That wasn't the moment.
Indictment after indictment of people in his circle - hell, his own former campaign manager SITTING IN A JAIL CELL - do not make a dent in your thick heads. Those weren't the moments.
He lies as often as he breathes. But you don't know it, or truly don't care. Every lie, not the moment.
He spends millions of your tax dollars ($69,241,269 estimated so far) on golfing at his own properties, thereby padding his own wallet. Meh. Those 121 times were not the moments.
He met with Kim Jong Un for the most obvious photo op, and complimented him as "very honorable" - a murderous dictator who starves his own people. Not the moment. Nothing about that meeting and Trump's promises to you have come to fruition. There is no denuclearization, in fact there are satellite images showing they are rapidly upgrading. Where are you in this? Never mind, rhetorical question - FOX doesn't tell you, so FAKE NEWS. Obviously, not the moment.
His administration has separated over 2,000 children from their parents, with officials on the record saying they don't know if they can ever hope to reunite them all. Government sanctioned kidnapping with no thought to record keeping, yet you mocked the cries of the smallest, laugh at the pain of the parents. Not the moment, I guess?
This past week he met in private with the world's most cunning, duplicitous, cold blooded, murdering thug - Putin - called this country "stupid" and refused to confront him about the election tampering or the 12 newly indicted Russian agents. He stood there giving aid and comfort to the enemy - the textbook definition of treason - and you cheered him. Again, not the moment.
But then, that's what all this FAKE NEWS garbage has been preparing you for - this moment.
The moment when he needs you to completely turn your backs on the facts, stick your fingers in your wax holes, and start blathering blah blah blah blah because FAKE NEWS and the press is "the enemy of the people." Trump has followed the Hitler playbook right down the line to this quote that sums it all up: "It is not truth that matters, but victory."
And that has been your own ethos. All you have cared about is "winning" - that the guy you stood with is now the President, thereby sanctioning, giving aid and comfort to your ignorance, racism, bigotry, indifference, aggression, violence, and hate.
But this is where the rubber meets the road, MAGAts. This is where we will know, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that you are traitors to this country, that you have given up all claims to patriotism, that you are truly the enemy within.
If you would not have tolerated a single item listed above when President Obama was in office; if you would have screamed treason! traitor! had he uttered any of these compliments and defenses of two of the world's most thieving, murderous dictators; if you would have gone to bed ill at last night's revelation that incoming President Obama knew we had been cyberattacked, in his favor, yet had lied about it for 18 months - then you must be sickened now. This is not Deep State, this is deep shit. You must finally see Trump for what he is, what he is not.
We get it, no one likes to be proven wrong. But this is no longer about your ego. It is about our nation, its principles, its safety, its future. You must finally open your eyes, break the spell, and cast off your red hats. Your time is up.
This is the moment.
Help us save this country or get the hell out of the way.
