David Gregory Says Exactly What Everyone Who Opposes Trump is Thinking (Video)

For the better part of the last half century, the GOP has been the party of hypocrisy — among other things. Whether it’s claiming to be “fiscally conservative” while every president from their party adds trillions to the national debt, or claiming to respect “religious freedom” while trying to shove their religious views on the entire nation, the Republican Party is filled with some of the most blatant hypocrisies and contradictions I’ve ever seen.

Though almost nothing Republicans have done comes close to the blatant hypocrisies we’ve seen from Republicans concerning Donald Trump.

As frustrated and angry as I get thinking about the absurdity we’re currently witnessing from most of the Republican Party, I laugh more than anything else because of how ridiculous all of this is. For example, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan recently playing dumb, claiming he hadn’t seen the tweets, when he was asked about a very public threat Trump issued against former head of the FBI James Comey — the man he had fired just days earlier.

Their hypocrisy is especially outrageous when you consider the talking points and propaganda many of these same Republicans pushed against President Obama during his eight years in office, and to even greater lengths Hillary Clinton during last year’s campaign. Not only did they stretch their bogus Benghazi “investigations” out years hoping to use them against her last November, but Trump and much of the GOP spent most of the 2016 election implying she was some careless criminal who belonged in prison — for using a private email server as Secretary of State which the FBI concluded wasn’t linked to any criminal intent or activity.

Well, on Wednesday night, David Gregory appeared as part of a panel discussion on CNN where Trump was clearly the main focus of discussion. The former Meet the Press host said exactly what nearly every person who opposes Trump has been thinking:

When you lie, you lose your credibility. Nobody can be believed. We have to add to this discussion the outrageousness of the silence from Republicans. Again, insert President Hillary Clinton into this sentence and the independent prosecutor would need a vacation at this point they’d be working for so long. Come on guys. Get in the game here. Get in the war and start doing your job.

He couldn’t have really said it any better than that.

For a moment, ignoring everything else, if Hillary Clinton had just, in the last few days:

  • Fired the head of the FBI weeks after James Comey publicly confirmed her campaign was part of an on-going investigation into possible collusion with Russia.
  • Publicly threatened Comey on Twitter after firing him.
  • Admitted during an interview that the on-going investigation into possible treason committed between her campaign and the Russian government factored into her decision to fire the FBI director.
  • Gave Russian officials highly-sensitive classified information during a meeting where all American media was banned, yet state-run Russian media was allowed access.
  • Had a story break alleging that she told the recently fired head of the FBI that she wanted him to end the investigation into a former national security advisor with ties to foreign governments.
  • Also allegedly pressed the former head of the FBI to swear loyalty to her during a dinner meeting, a request he apparently refused, weeks before his eventual dismissal.

As Gregory said, if you insert Clinton’s name into every single thing I just listed that Trump’s done, or been accused of doing, over the last few days, Republicans would be going absolutely ballistic.

From now on, I think we should take David Gregory’s advice every time we hear a Republican defending Donald Trump’s ever-growing list of scandals. Any time one of these folks tries to defend him, all we should do is simply ask them to swap Hillary Clinton’s name for his, then ask them if they’d defend her if she had said, done, or been accused of the same thing.

    Not knowing who David Gregory is, I looked him up in Wikipedia. He is a journalist distinguished by his attack on Glenn Greenwald the reporter who brought Snowden’s accusations to light. His wife is a “former Fannie Mae executive vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary, and a lawyer representing four of Hillary Clinton’s closest aides in the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s email scandal.” That sounds like an insider couples’ resume for deep state inquisition functionaries. It was thoughtful to have recognized that Mrs. Clinton’s violation of national security was just incompetence rather than intentional. It’s ok then right? Still, it is always commendable for reporters to do their job as Mr. Gregory exhorts them to. Some reporters could, for instance, investigate why the FBI did not follow up on the strange murder of Seth Rich after a report that Mr. Rich had conveyed over 44,000 DNC documents to Wikileaks. However, my guess that the ‘war’ David Gregory, as a partisan of the deep state, encouraged was against the likes of Snowden and Wikileaks and not meant to challenge unintended violations of law by Mrs. Clinton or wide scale corruption and Fannie Mae.

      There were no laws against using a private server as SOS. It was after Hillary Clinton retired from that position it became law to solely use the Government server for official business. —- but I guess you know more than the FBI.

        “In various interviews, Clinton has said that “I did not send classified material, and I did not receive any material that was marked or designated classified.”However, in June and July 2016, a number of news outlets reported that Clinton’s emails did include messages with classification “portion markings”.The FBI investigation found that 110 messages contained information that was classified at the time it was sent. Sixty-five of those emails were found to contain information classified as “Secret”; more than 20 contained “Top-Secret” information. Three emails, out of 30,000, were found to be marked as classified, although they lacked classified headers and were only marked with a small “c” in parentheses, described as “portion markings” by Comey.[dubious – discuss] He added it was possible Clinton was not “technically sophisticated” enough to understand what the three classified markings meant. According to the State Department, there were 2,093 email chains on the server that were retroactively marked as classified by the State Department at the “Confidential” confidential level. Of the 2,100 emails that contained classified information, Clinton personally wrote 104 and her aides wrote hundreds more.” -wikipedia Hillary makes Trump look good. She was a national security disaster. Comey didn’t say Hillary was innocent. He said she was ‘extremely careless’ with national security information. That didn’t look good on her presidential resume. Face it, you have to take the side of detente trying to get along with Russia or be a cold warrior in the tradition of Eugene McCarthy finding Russians behind every bush. I choose the former. You chose the latter if you voted for Hillary.

        Provide credible links or bug off.

        You are arguing with wikipedia content. The article, “Hillary Clinton email Controversy” has 269 provided links. Really, you aren’t in a position to be issuing ultimatums if you are too lazy to look them up. Your other options include festering in progressive echo chambers.

      Men in black soon to be at your house for posting that, Killary will have you put away, like that Rich guy.

    After his disgraceful performance as host of Meet The Press, who knew that David Gregory had balls?
