So, this clueless dimwit named Tom Porter pens an article for Business Insider that actually gets published. Seems that President Trump tweeted the following today:

Russia, Russia, Russia! That’s all you heard at the beginning of this Witch Hunt Hoax...And now Russia has disappeared because I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected. It was a crime that didn’t exist. So now the Dems and their partner, the Fake News Media,.....

Mr. Porter - I guess I'm assuming ze's gender there - opens the piece with this brilliant bit of observational acuity:

President Donald Trump on Thursday tweeted about "Russia helping me to get elected" in 2016, seemingly a first for him.

He then continues on to display to the entire world exactly how clueless he is with the following drivel:

Trump mentioned Russian help in the context of having "nothing to do with" it - but it is nonetheless a significant departure from his claims that there was no help from Russia.

Shortly after posting the tweet, Trump again denied that Russia helped his election victory, telling reporters at the White House: "No, Russia did not help me get elected. You know who got me elected? You know who got me elected? I got me elected. Russia did not help me at all."

He did not explain why he would tweet about Russian help if he didn't believe it took place.

So, this dimwit goes on a tirade - in public, nonetheless - about how the President has essentially admitted that the Russians helped him win the election, then shortly thereafter denied the very thing that he'd admitted to. As I pointed out to Mr. Porter in an email that I sent to him, he clearly does not grasp the concept of tolling, which is exactly why people troll idiots like him.

I sent the guy an email saying the following:

Mr. Porter,

I just read your article in Business Insider with the title cited in my subject line. I must say that this has to be one of the most clueless pieces of writing that I've ever seen. Seriously, you don't grasp the concept of trolling, do you? Look it up. It's all over the Internet.

Sir, you have been trolled before the entire planet, in public. And you seem to be so clueless as to be proud of the fact. What did they teach you in journalism school?

Go have a look at the article. SNIP I mean, it's embarrassing that a guy who ostensibly has training in journalism would be incapable of catching a troll when he sees one.

But, then, we all know that The Donald is pretty much the troll master. And I mean that has the highest of compliments, particularly when it comes to outing idiots like Mr. Porter.

We can agree on that. The twitter in Chief.

Obama helped Trump get elected when he was warned about Russian meddling and did nothing about it.

His 'journalism' skills are actually spot on these days.
Click bait headline that trashes the president, only to almost explain in the article itself, how the headline was a lie.

His only mistake was that he didn't bury the part about the headline being a lie at the very end, just in case some busybody was going to read half the article, instead of just the headline before the continue to scroll, scroll away.

I give him a B+

I would not doubt the story that one or more of the envoy were made assets of US intelligence, which led to their demise. No negotiations are ever done in good faith when governments are involved.
