This morning President “ranty” Trump publicly announced his wishes for China to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden. This is on the heels of impeachment proceedings being started against the President for asking Ukraine to do the exact same thing while he was blocking giving them pre-approved Military aid.
Radio host and blogger, Erick Erickson, not to be outdone by other well known pro-Trump apologists pretending to be fence sitters, decided that we all misunderstood Trump’s real intentions. Because… grifters gotta grift.
You're all interpreting this as Trump demanding China investigate Biden. I know, it's what he said. But he's really trying to get you to cover Hunter Biden and China.— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) October 3, 2019
You're all interpreting the bank robber's note as saying "give me the money," but in fact what he meant was, seeing the unfairness of it all, the bank manager should open up the vault for him and invite him to take everything.— S.V. Dáte (@svdate) October 3, 2019
Yes, and the burglars were really trying to get the press to cover what was in the DNC filing cabinets at the Watergate.— Paula Tikz (@Paula_tikz) October 3, 2019
If Trump asked Russia to invade Alaska, you’d explain he was just promoting tourism.— Demosthenes (@Demosthenes561) October 3, 2019

Good lord. So what Trump says is no longer what he actually says? He can say anything and it's "well it's just how I wanted the media to cover it"— TheIcyBee (@TheIcyBee) October 3, 2019
Question, does your Trumpplaining away his obvious unfitness for office, help you sleep at night? pic.twitter.com/0PkM0QRKzC— Newshound (@NewsiesNeighbor) October 3, 2019
So according to your logic it's a head fake. He's only *pretending* to commit an impeachable offense as a willful misdirection to ask some mystical *you* to *cover* Hunter Biden & China.— Halo's_RevengeEvolved (@In2019Porge) October 3, 2019
Because…he's just stupid that way? Now Trumpslain why he would do such a convoluted thing.
Erick wakes up every morning debating if he should do what's right or be a grifter.— ReaganRepublican (@NeverDotard) October 3, 2019
The last week or so he's been on the Grifter Train

Oh so we should investigate children of Presidential candidates making business deals in China? Like those getting trademarks from the Chinese government? Those kinds of deals?— Ghost Dog Dad Bod NOT Ghost Dad Bod (@dogdadbod) October 3, 2019
Jesus h Christ man. Have some friggen dignity. Throw him overboard. At least then you’ll get Pence, who you love, for a year.— Rick (@CrystalPepsi) October 3, 2019
I totally agree with that last tweet. I mean really what are they waiting for?
Listen up Republicans. You have a chance to ditch the biggest embarrassment in your 165 year history, and still remain in power with a somewhat less crazy alternative in Mike Pence. All you need to do is get on board with impeachment.
I know they are probably worried about alienating the base, but they need to look hard at the numbers and realize that it’s only 17% of the population; a pretty gullible group of people at that. You could get Fox to spin it the right way and they’d buy it hook, line, and sinker.
Just grow some balls and take a chance. Save yourselves, your party, and whatever tiny shred (if any) of dignity you have left!
