John Podesta Confirms He Is a Loser by How He Treats Trump

Every time he rails against Donald Trump, Podesta confirms that his side deserved defeat.

When John Podesta confirms for us that he stands by the same criticisms he made during the election, he demonstrates that he is still refusing to deal with reality. Even if he was right about Trump, he would need to at least show an interest in learning how he could be so wrong about the viability of Hillary Clinton as a presidential candidate.

Instead, Podesta rails against the President as if he has authority to pass judgment on him and the people who voted for his. Thus, Politico reports, “John Podesta Unloads on Trump.”

Donald Trump is “unfit for office,” a president whose actions are often “absolutely crazy” and whose White House has “a complete disregard for the truth.” His firing of James Comey as the FBI director was overseeing an investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 campaign and whether Trump’s advisers colluded with it amounts to “close to an obstruction case” against the president.

But, says John Podesta—the sharp-tongued campaign chairman for Hillary Clinton whose 60,000 hacked emails are at the heart of that FBI investigation into the team of the man who defeated them—don’t expect impeachment proceedings anytime soon.

Republican congressional leaders Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have chosen to “Velcro their own political fate” to Trump’s and won’t pursue allegations against the president of their own party unless forced to do so by a 2018 midterm election debacle or further revelations. “It is clear to me that Republicans on Capitol Hill are not going to begin to turn on him at this point,” Podesta says.

The Republicans would likely have lost without Trump. And on many issues (for better or worse) Trump has tempered himself the meet GOP expectations. Aside from the Russia hysteria, Podesta is simply spinning Trump’s Republican victory and a disaster for Republicans. In other words, Podesta confirms that he is a loser! America has considered Podesta’s assertion that Trump is “temperamentally unfit” to be President, and has found it not believable.
