CNN / YouTube Koch Network distances from Trump divisiveness...

Russian asset Donald Trump is very unhappy with the Koch brothers, who have decided to try to salvage their legacy and mitigate the national disaster they’ve helped create with their Republican party. They said some mildly unpleasant things about Trump and his “divisiveness” which is “causing long-term damage.” That’s enough to earn them Trump’s twotweet treatment.

“The globalist Koch Brothers, who have become a total joke in real Republican circles,” he railed, “are against Strong Borders and Powerful Trade. I never sought their support because I don’t need their money or bad ideas.” That puts all the “real Republicans” who are in office right because of the Kochs money and bad ideas—and who are counting on that money to stay in office—in an interesting position.

Trump continues: “They [the Kochs] love my Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judicial picks & more. I made them richer.” Did Trump just admit that his tax cuts and judicial picks are intended to benefit the obscenely rich? Why yes, that’s just what he did. Thanks, Trump, for yelling what is supposed to be the quiet part out loud.

Yeah, he wasn’t done yet. “Their network is highly overrated, I have beaten them at every turn.” Huh? He just admitted he gave them the tax and regulatory and judicial outcomes they wanted, so where he’s beating them is kind of a mystery. But let’s not get bogged down in trying to parse the dotard, and finish this damned thing.

“They want to protect their companies outside the U.S. from being taxed, I’m for America First & the American Worker – a puppet for no one. Two nice guys with bad ideas. Make America Great Again!” See, there he’s just running out of steam and not even trying to make sense, but got distracted in the middle of it by that whole Russia thing—no puppet! no puppet! Trump’s real problem here is undoubtedly the fact that the Kochs are really truly bonafide billionaires, and everyone knows their money is real.

In a fight between Trump and the Koch brothers, there really is no one to root for. May they destroy each other.
