Paul Manafort admits he shared Trump campaign info with Russian agent “purely to make money”

Remember how Trump, even two days ago, claimed that they never colluded with Russia? Yeah...

@x_minus_t it's extremely disconcerting to me how little any of this seems to matter to the average person. When I talk about it to others, I can practically feel their eyes glaze over.

Open corruption at the highest levels, including literally sharing/selling information to foreign intelligence? Who cares.

Having senior campaign staff accept a meeting at your headquarters with a Russian intelligence asset, someone introduced as a Russian government official wanting to assist your campaign on behalf of Moscow? Hoax.

Illegally taking classified information to your personal residence after leaving office? It's not a big deal.

Undermining future elections and our democracy more broadly (not to mention dividing the country) by falsely claiming the election was stolen? So what.

These are just a few examples that I could think of in a couple of minutes. Nothing is real, nothing matters anymore except tribal affiliation. I don't know how we fix this.
