Right about a thing???


During one of the debates of the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton tried in vain to explain to Donald Trump that WikiLeaks is a piece of shit organization and a tool of the Russians. It was the same debate where moments later, Trump delivered what is and always will be the most presidential thing he's ever said, which was "No puppet. No puppet. You're the puppet!"

But Trump LOVED WikiLeaks. He particularly loved how it released all those hacked emails from the Clinton campaign (possibly at the behest of HIS campaign, and also his BFFs in Russia). He would go on stage and say WICK-Y-LICKS! THE WICK-Y-LICKS! LOCK HER UP BECAUSE OF THE WICKY-LICKS!

But that was "Hillary," and this is now.

Trump's CIA director Mike Pompeo -- who used to be a simple Benghazi congresstwat from Kansas who just couldn't understand why cool people always emailed Hillary Clinton, whereas all his emails were from cows -- said words on Thursday about WikiLeaks, and these were the words he said:

[Julian] Assange claims to harbor an overwhelming admiration for America, and the idea of America [...] No, I'm quite confident that had Assange been around in the '30s and the '40s and the '50s, he would have found himself on the wrong side of history.

Mike Pompeo, who actually used to TWEET WIKILEAKS DOCUMENTS (ya know, when it hurt Hillary), just called Julian Assange a Nazi.

Here's more:

WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service, and talks like a hostile intelligence service. And it's encouraged its followers to find jobs in the CIA, in order to obtain intelligence. It directed Chelsea Manning in her theft of secret information. It overwhelmingly focuses on the United States, while seeking support from anti-democratic countries and organizations. It's time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.

UH OH, HE SAID THE "R" WORD! That's big coming from the CIA director, but it's YOOGE coming from Donald Trump's CIA director.

Here's the whole video with some more transcript, for you to watch the whole thing:

In January of this year, our intelligence community determined that Russian military intelligence -- the GRU -- had used WikiLeaks to release data of US victims that the GRU had obtained through cyber operations against the Democratic National Committee. And the report also found that Russia's primary propaganda outlet RT has actively collaborated with WikiLeaks.

And then Pompeo made fun of Julian Assange's shitty op-ed in the Washington Post.

Seriously, watch the whole video. It might almost make you forgive Pompeo for being a GOP Benghazi asshole on the Hillary Clinton witch hunt. WE SAID "ALMOST." Don't worry, you will not forgive him, because he does not deserve it, and you are not that nice.

He talks a lot of shit about Edward Snowden too, so that's fun.

Anyway, Donald Trump is going to be so mad when he finds out Mike Pompeo loves America more than he loves Trump. He's also going to be really pissed when he finds out this is your open thread, because you guys are always saying such shitty things about Trump the Great.
