Trump Cranks The Treason To 11 While Old Media Habits Die Hard

In The New York Times, Ashley Parker is trying to be straightforward about the mind-boggling actions of the Republican presidential nominee:

Donald J. Trump said Wednesday that he hoped Russia had hacked Hillary Clinton’s email, essentially encouraging an adversarial foreign power’s cyberspying on a secretary of state’s correspondence.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Mr. Trump said, staring directly into the cameras. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.” ...

But old "objectivity" habits die hard:

The Clinton campaign immediately accused Mr. Trump of both encouraging Russian espionage against the United States and meddling in domestic politics.

"Accused"? ASHLEY, YOU JUST SAID UNAMBIGUOUSLY THAT THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT HE DID.

Try it this way:

The Clinton campaign immediately denounced Mr. Trump for encouraging Russian espionage against the United States and meddling in domestic politics.

Much better.

Donald Trump is a traitor. Any Republican who has endorsed Trump and doesn't withdraw that endorsement now is complicit in Trump's traitorous behavior.

I'm pledging a significant donation to the bail fund of anyone who climbs up Trump Tower and replaces the UMP with AITOR.

And if I were a Hillary Clinton surrogate, I'd stop using Trump's surname altogether. Donald Trump? No -- Donald Traitor. Just call him Donald Traitor, over and over again. That should be the Democratic message.
