5 stars for shit being so fucked up that we are now legitimately living in a real life Hideo Kojima story
Not quite. When Paul Manafort is revealed to be half cyborg and Trump secretly has a man made out of killer nano-machine wasps at his command who can use wormholes to exit and enter reality, then we'll be catching up to Kojima. For the moment, it's just textbook dumb greedy assholes who would have not gotten caught if they hadn't been so fucking stupid.

Getting in 5 stars to countermand the inevitable DQL one-star because some people hate fun

He didn't read the part of the indictment about how Russian trolls were issued instructions to, and I quote, "use any opportunity to criticize Hillary and the rest (except Sanders and Trump - we support them)."
But I'm sure none of you were taken in by any of that. It's some other bunch of people holding opinions identical to yours, who were played like a balalaika.
It's simpler to just not believe any of it and call it "fake news" even while the perps are being carted off to jail.
Told you all not to tell him.
Bort, you were right the whole time and I'm sorry. Politics is a matter of measured response, not ideological edgelording, and being a political edgelord is an existentially dangerous game humanity can't afford to play with industrialized opponents. Russia has scored a decisive victory.
Also, the New York and Charlotte protests were Russians on both sides, because Russians know how to play them some violent morons. Probably better than we do.
Putin's great political insight was that there is an authoritarian contingent of conservatives in every "advanced" nation, and it takes very little to fan them into a frenzy. And the saner conservatives, who have spent all this time covering for their authoritarians, are in no shape to rein them in when they finally spring into action.
You're all right, meme. I think you're wrong a lot of the time -- and I'm sure that goes both ways -- but I also think you're speaking from the heart. Even when you're Doing A Thing, it's coming from a position of sincerity. If shit in Kentucky ever gets too shitty, you can hide out in Cleveland.
Interestingly, that is in part how Mussolini and Hitler both came to power: the "saner consevatives" of the time thought they could _use_ the fascists. Whoops.

Meanwhile, top secret communications between Trump and his sons...
Jr., what's your status?
Daddy? I've got Hope Hicks here. We've managed to avoid drowning!
