Are you kidding me right now?!

“Trump Administration Is the Most Corrupt Government Institution in the United States, Americans Believe.”

That was the headline for an article written for Newsweek (WeakNews) by Nina Burleigh.

The only problem is she can’t see far enough past her own liberal bias to report on her own numbers correctly.

She writes:

“In the year since Donald Trump was elected president on a promise to ‘drain the swamp’ of Washington’s corruption, Americans have become more, not less, convinced that Washington is corrupt.”

(That’s because President Trump is shining a light on all of the corruption and the fake news trying to cover it up, either by commission or ommission!!!! I’m sure if we had a President Hillary Clinton, corruption would be the last thing the biased mainstream media would be concerned about! It would all still be there but we would be none the wiser.)

She continues:

“A new public opinion poll conducted over the past two months found that Americans don’t believe that Trump is cleaning up the government. In fact, the opposite is true: 58 percent of people surveyed say the level of corruption has risen in the past 12 months, up from 34 percent who said the same in January 2016.”

(I believe she’s trying to portray the President in a negative light here, but it seems like she is tripping over her own words and logic. Regardless, the numbers that she is citing again point towards President Trump bringing the corruption to light, not an increase in corruption as a result of the President.)

Finally she writes:

“Nepotism and Trump’s refusal of transparency with respect to his businesses prompted the resignation of Walter Shaub, who quit in July as head of the federal government’s ethics office. Shaub had been a ferocious critic of the Trump administration’s blasé attitude about government ethics norms.

‘I can’t know what their intention is,’ Shaub said in an interview after he resigned. ‘I know that the effect is that there’s an appearance that the businesses are profiting from his occupying the presidency. And appearance matters as much as reality, so even aside from whether or not that’s actually happening, we need to send a message to the world that the United States is going to have the gold standard for an ethics program in government, which is what we’ve always had,’ he continued.”

(What?! Excuse me! He didn’t just say, “And appearance matters as much as reality, so even aside from whether or not that’s actually happening, we need to send a message to the world that the United States is going to have the gold standard for an ethics program in government, which is what we’ve always had.” Yes, he did just say that! You really have to just let that comment sink in for a minute to realize how “swampy,” how confused, and how based in liberalism it is. “Appearance matters as much as reality.” That is definitely a liberal mainstay of a concept. Then, “Aside from whether or not that’s actually happening, we need to send a message to the world that the United States is going to have the gold standard for an ethics program in government, which is what we’ve always had.” So…we need to send a message to the world about something that might not actually be happening, but that doesn’t matter, as long as people think we’ve always had the “gold standard” for ethics in our government, which nobody would possibly think other than this idiot, Walter Shaub, apparently.)

You can’t make this stuff up!

Well, actually, the biased mainstream media and the “swampy” establishment politicians have.

law protects the corrupt
