MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE - 2016 edition

Post by garam_kuta on Mon Dec 12, 2016 12:36 pm


In the 1962 political thriller "The Manchurian Candidate," a hostile government uses covert measures and secret agents in an elaborate plot to get its favored candidate elected president of the United States. The scenario seemed fanciful even at the height of the Cold War.

Today, the idea seems strangely topical.Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, resigned last August after his work helping a Putin-connected billionaire buy Ukrainian television assets attracted scrutiny. According to Newsweek, "American and European intelligence" investigated another campaign adviser, Carter Page, who was allegedly channeling messages from the Kremlin—a charge he denies. Trump's pick for national security adviser, Lt. General Michael Flynn, boasts of having made a high-level briefing to Russia's military intelligence staff (GRU). He was paid to be interviewed live at a gala dinner marking the 10th anniversary of RT, the television channel that is Russia's main international purveyor of propaganda. Rex Tillerson, the Exxon Mobil CEO reported to be Trump's favorite for Secretary of State, has no public diplomatic experience. But he does have an "Order of Friendship" medal awarded him by Vladimir Putin. Five years ago, he signed an energy deal with Russia that is expected to bring in $500 billion.

since even before the elections I have been imagining a parallel reality in which Trump is arm twisted by the Russians to contest the elections, and while he plays along to save his ass, he keeps saying and doing one outrageous thing after another to lose the elections, and in the end is mad at Hillary for losing even after he was handing it to her on platter. lol.

Plus he still seems butthurt about Trump winning the election and the damage it could cause to his "legacy"[/url]
