So slowly that hardly anyone noticed, Vox became a Truther site. Before long, they'll be voxsplaining the temperature at which steel melts.
"Donald Trump’s terrifying plan to win the 2018 midterms," is the Vox headline.
What's this terrifying plan? To let terrorists successfully attack America.
"Is Donald Trump hoping foreign terrorists attack the United States?" Matthew Yglesias is just asking the question. Does Matthew want ISIS to take over America so he can watch his political opponents beheaded on television while he marries 5 child brides?
I'm just asking the question here. Not coming to any conclusions.
"In private conversations, Trump has told advisers that he doesn’t think the 2018 election has to be as bad as others are predicting. He has referenced the 2002 midterms, when George W. Bush and Republicans fared better after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, these people said."
There's only one possible conclusion. Trump is plotting another 9/11 to do well in midterm elections, says the not at all Fake News media.
And the media really just doesn't understand why conservatives think it has less than zero credibility.
"Given Trump’s willingness to put his own interests before democratic norms — from keeping his business interests, to firing his FBI director to protect a friend — the absurd idea feels almost plausible."
That's a Wolffesque, Trump is so terrible we can tell any lie about him.
If Trump thinks a terrorist attack would serve his political interests — either through a blind rally ‘round the flag effect or by specifically validating anti-immigrant demagoguery or what have you — how hard is he really working to keep the country safe?"
Trump is defeating ISIS and he's trying to block terror migrants from Muslim countries, against the efforts of the left, including Vox. Unlike Obama, he isn't freeing terrorists or welcoming them to America.
Look for the fact checkers to fact check this conspiracy theory sometime between never and doomsday. Also look for Google to roll the fact check into its knowledge panels around the same time.
The left gets a pass on its conspiracy theories. It gets a pass on everything.
