Donald's craziness is diverting attention from his ties to Russia.

DailyKos: "Donald Trump may be acting crazy, but it's keeping the news away from the one story he wants to bury"

http://www.dailykos.com/stories/2016/8/3/1555927/-Donald-Trump-may-be-acting-crazy-but-it-s-keeping-the-news-away-from-the-one-story-he-wants-to-bury#read-more

Why would Trump be so concerned to change one plank in the Republican platform?

He might not. But Paul Manafort would. Trumpís campaign manager worked long and hard for pro-Russian forces inside the Ukraine that were trying to destroy the pro-western government....

In doing this work, Manafort has been working directly against the interests of the United States. And directly for the interests of Vladimir Putin.

And he may still be on the payroll.


This is an excellent summary of ties between Trump's campaign and Russia. The article is long, but well worth the read. In my opinion, this story has got to be kept in the public view during this campaign. Manafort's efforts directly conflict with past and current US policy toward Russia; and a sizeable majority of both Republicans and Democrats are opposed to Trump's boosting of Putin, advocating parting ways with NATO, and handing Crimea to Russia.

1. He's way too chummy with the new Soviet Union.

Melania surely wasn't Putin's honey trap for Donald, was she?

2. If this keeps him out of the White House, no problem

If this looks like it isn't working, we will still have the ties to Russia among many other things to put in front of him to stop him from ever becoming President.

3. It's not his "craziness"

It's the ableist speculation that he is which is mostly coming from people who object when they see racism and misogyny.
