If it were Clinton...

Imagine, if you will, that President Hillary Clinton, having narrowly defeated Donald Trump in the 2016 election and facing the prospect of running against him again in 2020, abruptly and without explanation holds up financial aid authorized by Congress to a foreign country.

Shortly after, during a conversation with the leader of this country, she repeatedly requests that he/she contact her personal lawyer and the attorney general of the United States to investigate the possibility of wrongdoing by Trump and one of his children in this same country, despite the fact that this allegation had been previously investigated and found to be baseless.

While President Clinton never explicitly says “Nice country you’ve got there. It would be a shame if something were to happen to it,” the link between the aid and the request to investigate is clear.

Fox News would be beating the drum for impeachment (or worse) 24/7. Trump would be tweeting up a storm. The same people who are fine with Trump’s behavior today would be apoplectic. Makes Watergate feel like the good old days, doesn’t it?

b-B-b-b-but it ISN'T. The SeaHag had it won. Then she made the "Deplorable" speech. End of story.

They don't care about Trump being complicit in this sort of shit because Trump is a good representative of them, their character, and their moral codes.

Imagine if Trump was VP and threatened to withhold aid to a foreign nation unless they fired a prosecutor looking into a company his son works for.

That would be scandalous wouldn't it?
