3 points about INSANE BuzzFeed report regarding Trump and #GoldenShowerGate

Issue

BuzzFeed published a 35-page report allegedly produced by a former British Intelligence Officer detailing extensive ties between Donald Trump and Russia.

The report is currently unverified, but BuzzFeed published it anyways. Considering they make their money off of quizzes, this isn’t entirely a shocking revelation.

The report contains some information that is completely insane. words almost can’t describe the impact that it would have on Donald Trump if it were true.

This story has some steam, however, prompting a response from The Donald himself along with it’s own hashtag on Twitter: #GoldenShowerGate

1: Allegations inside the report

It’s very important to note that this is all alleged, and nothing has been confirmed. I’m simply going to recap what Trump is being accused of, and this needs to be taken as an accusation — not fact.

Russian prostitutes performed golden showers for Trump- I can’t believe that I’m actually writing this, but yes — golden showers.

The report claims that Trump had prostitutes perform golden showers for him in the Presidential suite at the Ritz-Carlton in Moscow. For those who don’t know, a golden shower is when a person pees on another person for sexual gratification.

Apparently the FSB (Russian spying agency that came after the KGB) is known to have had the room that these acts were allegedly performed in bugged with video and audio.

Trump was fed negative information about his political opponents — Apparently this went on for years. Hillary Clinton is the only politician named.

Trump sent information back to Russia — There are claims in the report that Donald Trump had his own hackers, and moles inside the DNC obtaining information for the Kremlin. Putin’s motivation was said to be fear of Hillary Clinton.

Trump was happy to have Russia as media ‘bogeyman’ — This was reportedly because Trump has undisclosed corrupt business ties in China and other emerging countries that he didn’t want the American public to find out about.

Trump was given real estate opportunities in Russia — Apparently Donald Trump was given opportunities for real estate development in Russia surrounding the 2018 Fifa World Cup.

The report claimed ‘for reasons unknown’ Trump didn’t take advantage of these offers.

2: The report is unverified

It’s posted by BuzzFeed, which admitted right in the subtext under the title of the article that “The allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors.”

For most news publications that wouldn’t even make it to an editing desk, but BuzzFeed operates with some different standards… this because top headlines currently include such gems as:

Create a Sandwich and We’ll Reveal a Deep Truth About You
Which Batman are you?

BuzzFeed isn’t known for it’s political reporting

Trump is pissed

The Donald isn’t happy about this at all, and as I’m sure you guessed, took to Twitter to tell the people what he thinks:

All joking aside, he has the right to be pretty upset at this one, although I don’t think he realizes that responding throws more gas on the fire.

None of the major news outlets running with this story as truth. It probably would have died sooner had Trump not freaked out about it.

Verdict

Since the report is unverified, there’s a good chance that nothing in it ever becomes substantiated.

But if it does get verified… well, this could be the biggest political scandal since that whole Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky thing.

At this point we almost always expect the worst from Trump, which for him is an asset because nobody is ever shocked at what he does politically. But this is something else. I seriously doubt that Russian orgies would get swept out of the news cycle quickly.

The saying goes, ‘where there is smoke there is fire’, but this is way too damaging to lend any weight to.

The PEOTUS may not always deserve the benefit of the doubt, but in this case he definitely does.
