WTF Is Happening With Russia?

Russia. Trump. Other Trump. Kushner. THE KREMLIN. What does it all mean? Keeping up with the news can feel like a full-time job. Especially when the breaking news of today is about filling in the holes from the last few months.

That's why are soooo thankful for the journalistic goddesses at NPR, Washington Post, and the NY Times for publishing chronological timelines the US-Russia drama. They're easy to read, full of non-alternative facts, and includes caveats where they gotta. #Journalism

Read those resources. Then take a breath. Come back. And process this drama with our own Super-Abbreviated Emotional Timeline of the Russia-Trump Shiz.

 

Here's what happened: March-May 2016

  • Trump gives a speech at the swanky-dank Mayflower hotel. He says that we should really, like, ease some of this tension with Russia: “Some say the Russians won't be reasonable. I intend to find out."

  • May 2016, Russian hackers had get their hands on tons of data from the Democratic National Committee's systems (that's DNC in poli-nerd speak). Hmm I wonder what they'll do with it?

Here's what happened: June 2016

  • Clinton steps into mom mode with a warning: “If you don't know exactly who you're dealing with, men like Putin will eat your lunch.”
  • ONE DAY LATER, little Donny gets a now notorious email saying “boi wait till u see wut we got 4 u, XO Russia,” (paraphrasing). And Donald Trump, Jr. says, “If it's what you say, I love it, especially later in the summer’” (not paraphrasing)
  • They meet. It wasn’t what they said. Lil’ Donny is bummed.

And also in June….

  • “Guccifer 2.0” posts tons of docs online that were stolen from the DNC. Later, super-duper intelligence agencies tell us it was Russian Hackers. Shocking? Eh... 
  • Trump says “Too bad the D.N.C. doesn’t hack Crooked Hillary’s 33,000 missing emails.” Come on man...

Making us feel like....

 

Here's what happened: July 2016

  • A lot of sh*t went down in July. Like when Trump ends GOP convention saying that the legacy of Hillz is “death, destruction, terrorism and weakness." Then people cheer for him like a July Santa Clause.  
  • Then the next morning, WikiLeaks posted nearly 20,000 emails hacked from the DNC. Trump responds, "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing.
