This morning on MSNBC, Rob Reiner presented a magnificent un-sugarcoated view of the Trump / Russia disaster:

ROB REINER: We talk about somebody coming from a reality show, running for President isn't a reality show, it's actual reality. And this man is the single most unqualified person to run for President in my lifetime.... (cheers from crowd) Just to hear what you just said, I mean, we had an entire Presidency taken down in the 70's over Watergate, and that was a break-in, to the National Democratic Headquarters, that didn't amount to anything! Because they didn't get anything! Here we have a break-in, to the Democratic National Headquarters where everything is stolen, and there's a conceivable connection to the Trump campaign. That to me, is just, off-the-charts insane! I mean, I can't believe we are having this conversation here. This is off-the-charts crazy. We're in Crazy Land, here.

TAMERON HALL: "Yes we are," someone here just yelled behind us.

Because Tameron Hall is not allowed, as an on-air cable news personality, to declare that there is a large steaming pile of dog turd infecting this Presidential race called Donald Trump. She has to bring on a comedian, and then repeat what some heckler says, in order to retain "objectivity."

At some point the media is going to have to admit, on air, and in real time, that hey, we just can't do this anymore.

We have been in "Crazy Land" before.

Can you help us out?
