The Mueller Investigation is Helping Donald Trump—and It’s Trump’s Fault
Reality has finally hit the progs of politics. It’s best described as: ‘OMG! Is the Mueller Investigation actually helping Donald Trump?’

With the president still hanging in at about 50% in popularity polls, panic is starting to overtake visceral hatred.

Like the fog in San Francisco, panic is seeping in and is even affecting latte-sipping journalists planning to celebrate the ‘We Took Down Trump!’ bash.


Missing from New York Times columnist Frank Bruni’s panic attack that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian 2016 election meddling could actually be helping President Donald Trump is that it’s making a joke of the NYT.

“The Mueller investigation, Bruni argued, is dominating media coverage to the extent it’s crowding out coverage of what Trump and his administration are actually doing. (Daily Caller, May 22, 2018)

But wait a minute. Isn’t it the New York Times, along with its ugly step sister the Washington Post,  that has been “dominating media coverage to the extent it’s crowding out coverage of what Trump and his administration are actually doing”?

An ongoing scenario well known by the chattering classes, countless members of whom groan every time they see yet another story about the blankety-blank Mueller investigation.

“Crowding out coverage” against the real stories of the day is what the NYT does best.

In his desperation, this is what Bruni sees as a better story than RussiaGate:

“Maybe the just-published Politico report of Trump’s deliberate, cavalier use of a cellphone that doesn’t have strict security safeguards would be getting extra attention” if not for the Mueller investigation, Bruni pondered. (Daily Caller)


“Without Mueller and Russia, Scott Pruitt would be closer to center stage, with an even brighter, harsher spotlight on him,” the liberal columnist continued.

“He’s not exactly evading scrutiny, but he’s being spared the relentless top-of-the-screen, start-of-the-newscast treatment that he would likely endure if lawmakers, journalists and other watchdogs weren’t so mesmerized by the convoluted twists of Mueller v. Trump.”

“Bruni also expressed his concern the Mueller investigation might not find evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia.”

Therein lies the rub.  If the Mueller investigation does not find evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia (the state of the investigation after an entire year and a half of looking), think how ridiculous the New York Times, which gave it saturation coverage, will look.

“Trump “knows that if he sets the bar at incontrovertible evidence of him and Putin huddled over a Hillary Clinton voodoo doll, he just might clear it,” the columnist wrote. (Daily Caller)

 “And he knows that if Americans are fixated on collusion, they aren’t concentrating on much else. That’s good for him and terrible for the country.”


A media fixation on collusion is good for Trump?!

In short what Bruni is saying is that that the Mueller investigation which spent a year coming up empty on evidence but STILL investigating him is Donald Trump’s fault.

Everything, including the weather and all things that transpired before Trump even entered the political arena is Trump’s fault.  Just ask Hillary Rodham Clinton.

We’ve reached a stage where the enablers of the dead-in-the-water Mueller investigation are becoming downright laughable.

We will soon be reading in the New York Times that the Obama regime only implanted spies in the Trump election campaign for his own protection; that deranged progs don’t hate Trump.  They love him and always did.

The biggest laugh of all will come when the Dems who are now stealing Trump and We the People’s Drain the Swamp meme will argue that they never stole it, as it was theirs in the first place.

Count on them making full use of the slogan Make America Great Again come November midterms.
