Almost every person around Trump shared tweets from 1 Russian troll farm by coincidence of course.

    Trump associates retweeted fake GOP account run by Russians

    And had over 100,000 followers claiming they were the official twitter of Tennessee GOP. Just by coincidence out of millions of twitter users several Trump administration folks all just happened to retweet their messages. By coincidence

    Kinda like every meat puppet on Al-CNN, PBS, CBS, NBS, ABS and MSLSD parrots the same EXACT statements as if they were all reading from the same script?

    You know... The script called "Media Matters"?

    When your complaint has words like "every" it loses its punch

    I don't know whether they did it knowing the tweets were from Russian instigators. I think they did it because the tweets aligned with their warped view of the world, and because Trumpkins, most especially Trump himself, is too stupid to know, beyond the most basic of things, what's real and what's not.

    Oh I agree, but are you also saying that it was just a coincidence that all of them just happened to retweet messages from 1 twitter account out of millions?
    Every one around trump just happened to retweet Russian agit prop? By accident?

    No. I suspect one of them came by it and told others about it and they all tweeted about it and none of them had the perspicacity to critically consider the actual merit of the ideas presented; thus they didn't discern that it was BS in the first place. The real issue is that few if any of Trump's cabal exercise any real due diligence regarding their own ideas, so when they see something that aligns with their ideas, they "run with it." The only coincidence is that nitwits "flock" together and form a self-confirming feedback loop amongst themselves.

    I suspect that were the same thing created by a non-Russian, Trump and his cohorts would have done the same thing. What's not coincidental is that Russians know quite well how to trigger self-absorbed minds like Trump's.
