So fucking stupid

Oh fudge, Donald Trump Jr. has gotten his finger stuck in all the Russians’ butts again. As we’ve learned about Russian interference in the 2016 election, one of the things Russians did throughout was employ cut-outs and go-betweens to target weak and stupid members of the Trump team. They gave Carter Page a tonguebath because he is such a scholarly good boy who loves Russia, and they poked around all kinds of other Trump idiots, making vague promises of delivering unto the Trump campaign the mythological 33,000 deleted emails from Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi server, because those nonexistent emails are like barbecue-flavored opioids to Trump idiots.

They came to Donald Trump Jr. promising sweet delicious dirt on Hillary and the DNC, if only he could take a meeting with a Russian lawyer and a bunch of Russian spies in Trump Tower. (“If it’s what you say, I love it!” said Junior, who yearns for his father’s approval.) And it turns out they used Julian Assange at WikiLeaks, who has long been identified by American intelligence services as a Russian cut-out, who sent Junior private sexts on Twitter all through 2016, including after it was publicly known that WikiLeaks was a Russian front.

Julia Ioffe broke the story at The Atlantic, and it is wow:

Just before the stroke of midnight on September 20, 2016, at the height of last year’s presidential election, the WikiLeaks Twitter account sent a private direct message to Donald Trump Jr., the Republican nominee’s oldest son and campaign surrogate. “A PAC run anti-Trump site putintrump.org is about to launch,” WikiLeaks wrote. “The PAC is a recycled pro-Iraq war PAC. We have guessed the password. It is ‘putintrump.’ See ‘About’ for who is behind it. Any comments?”

Ooh! This was almost as exciting as that one time Junior had a wet dream about what it would like to be to have a regular human face! He replied the next morning that he would “ask around,” and he did:

According to a source familiar with the congressional investigations into Russian interference with the 2016 campaign, who requested anonymity because the investigation is ongoing, on the same day that Trump Jr. received the first message from WikiLeaks, he emailed other senior officials with the Trump campaign, including Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Brad Parscale, and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, telling them WikiLeaks had made contact. Kushner then forwarded the email to campaign communications staffer Hope Hicks.

That is exactly what you are supposed to do when a known Russian intelligence front is poking you for information. Rule number one: DO NOT CALL FBI. Rule number two: EMAIL EVERYBODY YOU HAVE EVER MET.

Junior tweeted out his dirty private WikiLeaks sexts Monday night, just like he did when the email chain about his Russian Trump Tower big boy grown-up spy meeting was about to come out. God bless, he is stupid. He emphasizes that he only replied to Assange three “whopping” times, and exhibits an Alanis Morissette level of understanding of the word “ironic”:

We should note that Junior’s lack of responses after a certain point doesn’t mean he wasn’t reading and taking instructions. It certainly appears, according to the timeline of events reported by Ioffe, that he was! Since dipshit tweeted them out anyway, let’s just look at the original source. This happened on October 3, 2016:

LOL at Junior begging for the scoop on the big Wednesday WikiLeaks drop. He’s referring to how Roger Stone famously tweeted that on the very next Wednesday, Hillary Clinton would be “done,” on account of WikiLeaks. Li’l Donny didn’t know about it because nobody tells him anything. :(

As Think Progress notes, just four days later Homeland Security and the DNI released “a joint statement publicly accusing WikiLeaks of being a Kremlin front.”

Think Progress also notes that in the last month of the campaign, Trump talked about WikiLeaks 164 TIMES. It appears Assange noticed! From October 12, 2016:

No fun, Junior didn’t respond to that one! But Ioffe notes that something DID happen, just 15 minutes later:

15 minutes after it was sent, as The Wall Street Journal’s Byron Tau pointed out, Donald Trump himself tweeted, “Very little pick-up by the dishonest media of incredible information provided by WikiLeaks. So dishonest! Rigged system!”

That’s a pretty efficient reach-around right there, during a time period where the campaign absolutely should have known they were dealing with the Russians when they did the bidding of WikiLeaks. As Ioffe notes, Junior tweeted the nice link WikiLeaks secretly sexted him a couple days later, on the 14th:

HMMMMM, wonder if anything else happened October 14, 2016? Oh, look, here is Mike Pence on Fox News that very morning denying the Trump campaign is in “cahoots” with WikiLeaks, on the very same morning Junior was doing XXX CAHOOTS with WikiLeaks in his private Twitter messages:

This prompted the chyron writer on “Morning Joe” to say fuck it and go full Wonkette on Tuesday morning:

Anything else? Sure! Here’s WikiLeaks suggesting on October 21 that Junior give them one of his Daddy’s tax returns, partially because it would help Assange keep up the ruse that WikiLeaks was impartial in the 2016 election and not colluding with the Trump campaign:

And here’s WikiLeaks helpfully suggesting to Junior on election day that if his dad “loses,” he should not “conceed”:

Also, they wanted Donald Trump to try to convince Australia to nominate Assange as ambassador to the US. Totally a reasonable thank-you for all the help he gave the campaign, right? Assange also sexted when Junior’s Russian meeting came out in the press, with a helpful suggestion:

The message was sent at 9:29 am on July 11. Trump Jr. did not respond, but just hours later, he posted the emails himself, on his own Twitter feed.

He sure did! Junior seemed to get quite a lot of ideas from his private messages with WikiLeaks, regardless of whether he actually responded.

But wait, we are confused. Doesn’t Attorney General Jeff Sessions want to put WikiLeaks IN JAIL? Doesn’t CIA Director Mike Pompeo say WikiLeaks is a “hostile intelligence service” that does Russia’s bidding and that Assange probably would have been a Nazi if this was the 1930s? HE DOES.

Wonder how they’ll react to these revelations!

In summary, Junior did another wet Russian shit in his diaper and Robert Mueller has a whole bunch of new material for his investigation, assuming he didn’t have this already.

    Why did Wikileaks think that Trump could help get Assange nominated as Australian Ambassador to the US? Australian Ambassadors are career diplomats. Assange must be going stir crazy stuck in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.

    • FlemmishSpy

      He’s grown fond of embassy life.

    • FlemmishSpy

      Ambassador to ‘Stralia would be a perfect gig – he’s on his home turf and he has diplomatic immunity.

    • Daniel

      I just want this point made really, really clear:

      Julian Assange wanted to be made ambassador to Australia so he could safely leave London with diplomatic immunity.

      HE WAS LITERALLY ASKING TO BE SENT TO AUSTRALIA BECAUSE HE’D COMMITTED A CRIME.

      Trumpkins won’t matter if the Democrats take back Congress. Trump will be finished at that point and we have a good chance of overtaking Republicans despite gerrymandering next November. By then, Mueller would have wrapped up his investigation and Democrats will have all the ammunition they need.

  • KnaveOfSwords

    And Pence seems to be aiming for criminal negligence charges rather than co-conspirator.

    Really. Let’s be generous here and assume that when he first started insisting that there was no collusion, he really didn’t know of any. I’m not quite sure we could excuse him providing cover for the entire campaign, transition team, and administration on his ignorance, but we’re being generous here, so let’s allow it.

    If this had been a one-off question, leaving it at that might have been acceptable. But in his position, when these questions kept coming (and especially when there started being evidence that some of the people were lying about their lack of collusion), he had an obligation to actually look into this shit because either the entire fucking world is getting together to make up shit to make the administration look like it’s colluding with Russia, the entire administration is traitors and he needs to do his part to put them all in jail, or Donny’s a moron who accidentally hired a bunch of traitors and needs to be protected from his traitor underlings by exposing them and shipping them off to jail.

    But you know what, let’s be generous again, and assume that Pence did, in fact, look into this.

    If he still didn’t realize there’s something going on, he deserves a prize for being the stupidest person in this entire confederacy of dunces. Part of why this is falling apart so quickly is that they’re shit at lying. They tell lies that are easily disproven with even a cursory investigation. You ask about the same thing twice and get 3 different –
    and contradictory – answers. A one-question survey “Did you do treason with Russia to win the election? Y/N” would have gotten back answers from this group that should have let him know that there was a problem.

    And yet, Pence still, to hear him tell it, knew nothing and suspected nothing.

    • kaydenpat

      Pence messed up Flynn’s vetting which should be enough to keep him out of the Presidency should Trump be impeached or otherwise kicked out of office.

          • Celtic_Gnome

            As I recall, Chris Christie had the lock on the VP position until Paul Manafort “engineered” an aeronautic issue that kept Trump’s plane on the ground an extra day in Indiana so Pence could get in some quality analingus time.

            We know Trump wasn’t paying Manafort, and, now, thanks to the indictments, we have a pretty good idea who was picking up the tab.

          Mike Dense is, of course, a titanic fraud . . . but I really do think he is, yes, that stupid. A child could beat him at checkers. He ought to be a bigger joke than he is – his picture is in the dictionary under “bless his heart.”

          Schmidt’s full-throated attack on the Trump administration coming from a member of the Republican establishment has earned him a lot of kudos from me. After unleashing Sarah Palin on the country, he admitted he’d made a mistake when he realized that.

          If we ever get back to a point where the people across the aisle are the loyal opposition, I want Republicans like Steve Schmidt over there. They won’t be willing to burn the whole place down just to prove they’re right.

        Unless any of them are your brothers- or sisters-in-law.

        • insolenttomato

          Ugh. I need a couple gins-and-tonic about now.

          • Indeniable Ron

            Round here we call that a ‘double.’

    • theCryptofishist

      “Goes” isn’t a plural, because “go” isn’t noun. Of course, I seem to be bucking the Wonkette trend here…

    • Querolous

      Sportsball games would be much faster if it weren’t for all the times-out

    • Ill-Advised

      The worsist. Which means the best.

  • Mr. Blobfish

    So, President Paul Ryan is what you’re saying. *shudder*

    • 🍁 Girl Guide Salute 🖖🏻

      Probably. There’s too much gerrymandering and too many hateful morons in this country to ever get a Democratic majority in the House again.

      • theCryptofishist

        But the republicans are so fucking incompetent… Maybe 50 years, when the current voting generation dies out?

    • P’jama Pahnts

      Yay! We’ll never pay taxes again!!!

  • WotsAllThisThen

    A whopping three messages from Junior. How many of those three were to the FBI saying, “Hey, the Russians are trying to interfere with this stuff?”

    • kaydenpat

      None.

      • Covfefe

        Silly, Those emails went to NSA.

  • Covfefe

    If Assange is appointed an ambassador, he has diplomatic immunity and can walk out of the Ecuadorian Embassy.

    • I’m not so sure Diplomatic Immunity covers crimes prior to becoming a Diplomat?!?!

      • Indeniable Ron

        Once the SCOTUS was packed sufficiently to the right, this issue would most likely just evaporate.

    • HogeyeGrex

      Meh. He’s technically only in there to avoid the consequences of skipping bail on a charge that no longer exists. Can’t imagine that’d be so awful a punishment that holing up for five years in the embassy with no end in sight is preferable. Of course, the reason he went in there in the first place was to avoid extradition to the US. One might think that if you could get yourself an Ambassadorship, you could keep the indictment for publishing classified info at bay. At the very least, it would look bad for the same administration to prosecute.

  • Bub, the cynical zombie

    Jeffy is impressive, in his own way. The ability to stick your foot in your mouth and then shoot yourself in said foot, while simultaneously stepping on your own dick is a truly rare one.

      Very apropos. Well done.

  • Weird Fishes

    Every so often I think back to a simpler time – say…2014 – when I didn’t know what Bronzo the Malignant’s loathsome brood looked like, or how effortlessly and indescribably stupid, or how comically pathetic the lot of them are.

    Boy, I miss those days.

    • theCryptofishist

      “Bronzo the Malignant”… I like it.

      • Weird Fishes

        Please, feel free. Be my guest.

  • Mavenmaven

    A party that defends child abuse is not going to get riled up by a little treason. What matters is sticking it to the black people, the gays, and their ‘liberal’ supporters.

    • 🍁 Girl Guide Salute 🖖🏻

      Don’t forget the undeserving poorz who want “free shit”.

    • Zippy W Pinhead

      An entire party that runs solely on entitlement and spite

    • Me not sure

      Russian collusion, child abuse, and racism is akin to winning the trifecta in that world.

    • Zyxomma

      And women, the poor, Jews, Muslims, and old people. And children who have been born.

    • Edith Prickly

      And sending all the illeegallz back to Mexico, even if they aren’t from there.

    • Celtic_Gnome

      That’s what The Base wants. With these guys in DC, I think it’s just about winning. They’ll look the other way for anything and everything if you’re a reliable Republican vote.

  • Doug Langley

    Jesus. It’s like watching Watergate and discovering Checkers was involved in the cover-up.

    • Checkers was smarter

      • Doug Langley

        He knew to keep his mouth shut.

      • theCryptofishist

        But what about that republican cloth coat?

    • Me not sure

      He was controlled by high-frequency dog whistles that couldn’t be picked up by the White House recording system.

    • Bigby

      Oh, come now, Checkers died long before Watergate, you’re thinking of King Timahoe…who accidentally chewed a single reel to reel tape in 1972. Bad dog!

      • Pfft. You believe that Checkers “died?”

        • LucindathePook

          I thought HIllz killed Checkers.

    • ImGoingBacon

      Mrs. Respectable Republican Cloth Coat on line one.

  • tihond

    Isn’t it kind of embarrassing to be Julian Assange and have the world realize even DTJr thinks he’s too cool then to say more than three things to you?

  • For the cherry on top of this shit sundae (“we’ll call it ‘chocolate ice cream’, the dumb fucks we’re pandering to won’t know the difference”) you have to read ASSange’s “take” on this where the boy is spinning like a Merry-go-round (A “Twit-a-whirl”?)

  • Cornelius Fussbudget

    “if your father ‘loses’ we think it is much more interesting if he DOES NOT conceed…”

    Sounds like they were producing a reality TV show. Goddamn it they WERE producing a reality TV show. They even hired a reality TV star to host! Double goddamn fucking shit, they ARE STILL producing a fucking reality TV show.

  • unclejeems

    Remind me–is this one Beavis or is he Butthead? I think Butthead is the better fit.

  • theCryptofishist

    If only Jr. had paid attention, he would have known that when you get into bed with wikileaks, you wake up fucked.

  • Red Bird

    Despite all of this they’re still in office.

    • Indeniable Ron

      Gonna need dynamite to pry them out.

  • CaliCheeseSucks

    Fucking traitors, every last one of them.

  • Duke

    I think we’re on the first round of lies. Again.

  • keinsignal

    This particular story rocketed past mere absurdity from day one with the “hey, your dad should make Assange an ambassador” thing. Did anybody think that was seriously a possibility, on either side?

    These messages are too good to be real. Not saying they’re necessarily fake – hopefully The Atlantic’s done its due diligence. But these things read like just line after line of “HEY DUDE WE SHOULD DO SOME HIGH CRIMES. SPECIFICALLY,…” Like a cross between broheim braggadocio and a Bond villain expounding at length on his evil plans while he warms up the laser cannon.

  • I propose a choose your own adventure novel: YOU ARE DONALD TRUMP JR. Every ending is bad

  • Edith Prickly

    Junior certainly is a chip off the old dried turd. He thinks he can bullshit his way out of anything, just like the old man.

  • Celtic_Gnome

    I must say, it’s fun to watch Rachel get really, really, really excited about this stuff when she’s going over it.

  • Keith Taylor

    I had believed it was only when Donald Junior posted that image of his father as a magnificently built superhero with a large T on his chest and a patriarchal beard to rival that of Charlton Heston as Moses, that he became “Dumbest Trump Offspring” in Eric’s place. Clearly I didn’t know enough. Donald Junior gained the title earlier than that.

  • persistently_resistant_gayby

    Dumb idiot proves how stupidly dumb and moronic he is, by implicating everyone in a scandal.

    EXCELLENT WORK DJTJ.

  • moeman

    Has he eaten all his daughter’s socialist halloween candy yet? POS.

  • Heyzeus Ahchay

    This is the picture accidentally taken of Junior at the exact instant when he realized (earlier this year) that there was a magical connection between the switch on the wall being moved by Ivanka and the light coming on in the fixture over the table in the kitchen.

  • McHitler

    So reading through the messages it appears that Wikileaks isn’t collude with the Trump campaign so much as they are using the campaign as a means to expose corrupt practices. Other than speculation of Wikileaks’ credibility there isn’t much to be worried about here.
