Fuck the Emmys. We’re in crisis.

We somehow allowed the Russia investigation to be framed in such a way that about 50% of Americans, even when confronted by evidence of Donald Trump’s multiple instances of obstruction of justice, still seemed to think that he should not be impeached.

While we were all yelling about Trump’s fucking wall, it was established that Paul Manafort funneled internal Trump campaign polling data to the Russians, likely to assist in their anti-Clinton disinformation campaign
