In a mind numbingly predictable leap over the facts into the void of misinformation, a Huffington Post reporter in her “article” concludes that a Trump tweet “suggested that whoever stole tens of thousands of emails from top Democratic officials and leaked them online was actually doing America a favor.” The basis for this assumption from The Huffington Post’ White House Correspondent Christina Wilkie was President Elect Trump’s tweet on Friday where he posed the question, “Are we talking about the same cyberattack where it was revealed that the head of the DNC illegally gave Hillary the questions to the debate?” While I can agree with the reporter’s assertion that Donna Brazile “… did not do anything illegal by sharing the question questions (fixed because Brazile did it on more than one occasion) with Clinton. It was certainly unethical.” I still have to take issue with the rest of her conclusions.
The usual Trump subtlety is akin to handling a teacup with a bulldozer so when he does something subtle it generally takes everyone by surprise. I think the point of this tweet was not to thank the hackers, but instead shine a light on the hypocritical nature of the recent hysteria over this issue. The irony here is that Big Media and many on the left are all up in arms about the alleged Russians hacking of the emails to help Trump win the election, but a good portion of the most damming leaked materials show the DNC, the Clinton Team and Big Media all colluding to rig the Primary against Bernie Sanders. Now I will give everyone a moment for that to sink in… The left is upset that there may or may not be evidence that the Russians hacked both the DNC’s & John Pedesta’s emails, no proof whatsoever that the Russians are responsible for leaking the emails to Wikileaks, and a good portion of the emails that were leaked prove that the DNC and Clinton Campaign actively sought to set up the primary in such a way that they could drag their failing candidate across the finish line and into the general election.
While I believe that it is completely plausible and probably very likely that the Russians hacked those accounts, it is also just a plausible that actors from North Korea, Iran, China or any number of other nations hacked into those email accounts and systems as well. It is also plausible that a disgruntled DNC employee leaked those emails. Hell, because Podesta’s email password was actually “p@ssw0rd”, as shown here (https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/22335), I could also draw the reasonable conclusion that two twelve year olds in a basement in Missouri hacked his email. Until we can definitely prove who passed those emails to Wikileaks, because it is plausible that multiple entities may have access to them, we have no idea who tried to sway the election and thus it is foolish to simply blame the Russians.
While many on the left are upset about the act, it flies in the face of reason that they are not just as upset over the content of the emails. Here you go Leftists, here is a real reason to be upset. (https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/5205)

If you are upset because you think the Election was stolen, but still not upset over the primary then you are simply a hypocrite.
