Let us say there is collusion, I think that Trump may be innocent.

My reasoning is this, he simply is not smart enough. I think he may have inadvertently got himself mixed up with this by hiring people smart enough to align themselves with Russia.

Y'all had a president by the name of Trueman...

Do you miss my point? Check out the sign on his desk.

That's a really poor argument because like I stated earlier. 15 million millionaires in US alone.. how many will reach a billion? Some of the most successful and well connected people don't reach a billion. You guys act like he didn't earn it. Stop it

But yet you agree that it doesn't take a genius to become a billionaire.

And you're right about your guesses. One thing that I can guarantee is no idiot or moron ever became a billionaire.


i dont think one needs to be a genius to be a billionaire.
im sure there are some that got in on the ground floor of # and hired some savvy investors and there it is.

you saying a person has to be a genius to be a billionaire?

I also agree with your sentiment that wealth is not a measure of intelligence. Up to the 7-8 figures even. But a BILLION is a different ball game. You don't become a billionaire by chance or luck.

That would at least be consistent—on the one hand he is an idiot, but on the other he is able to trick the entire American public and organize a Russian takeover.

But as for your assessment that he is not smart enough, they don't let idiots into Wharton School of Business, one of the top-rated and most competitive business schools on the planet. Which school did you go to?

If you were given a million dollars, could you turn it into a billion?

Sure you can. An idiot can do it, after all.

I'll go ahead and say probably most of the billionaires made some unethical decisions and went through many loopholes. That's how hard it is to achieve a billionaire. Doesn't meant they are an idiot that's for sure.

He has proven time and time again that he is not a smart man, so he may just be guilty by association. He hired smart people to run his campaign and it is not that big of a leap to realize that these people may have colluded with Russia.

Trump may just be a scapegoat, this man is an idiot and to think he can organize a major effort to screw the American people over is simply not feasible. He has a habit of blurting crap out, so f he knew about this, he would have let something slip.

So perhaps if there is collusion, it was done behind his back because his backers and staff kept it secret from him because they knew his idiocy would have ruined it.


what?....his sons and son-in-law have multiple business interests in Russia....they came out in public and said that very thing...his commerce sec. is half-owner of a Greek bank known for Russian money laundering by Interpol. Tillerson, sec. of state, has business ties to Russia,
to say trump knows nothing about any of this, is mystical thinking

I don't believe Trump would have risked colluding with Putin. He could have won the election with or without the DNC emails. With today's amazing technology, everything you do is tracked. If he did collude with Putin, he would have been found out and lost the election and lost tens of millions he spent on his campaign for nothing and ruined his and his family's reputation. Occam's razor would suggest Trump did not collude with Putin in the 2016 election.
