Inside the secret, sinister and very illegal cabal trying to destroy Trump
The society would secretly edit video footage and transcripts to show Trump shoving a world leader and insulting leaders of friendly countries such as Australia, Britain and Sweden. This would make Trump sound like a bully.
The society would infiltrate White House policy so Trump would add trillions of dollars to the deficit to give billionaires a huge tax break. This would make Trump sound like a liar.
The society would convince Trump to say kind things about white supremacists, and to use a filthy word to describe African countries. This would make Trump sound like a racist.
The society, finally, would convince Trump to fire an FBI director, hire a guy named "Mooch" and declare himself a "stable genius." This would make it clear he was neither.
Worshipful Master Podesta called for discussion.
Senior Warden Comey said the proposals sounded "too far-fetched." Grand sword-bearer Clapper said it would be "impossible" to get Trump to say and do such things. Pursuivant McCabe said people would never believe such "outlandish" things, anyway.
The recommendations were defeated en bloc. The society adjourned.
