Well, Umair, it’s time to quit playing around the edges about this spy thing. With a guy like Trump the Russians don’t have to depend on pee, pee tapes or huge loans to perfectly control him. He is the Siberian Candidate — period.

There may be no proof of it at the moment, but I’m sure of three things. First, that the Russians have developed very sophisticated mind control techniques over many decades. Second, that they would not hesitate to use such techniques. And third, with a careless guy like Trump they would have had ample opportunity over many years to whisk him away for some private hypnotic type programing sessions. There is nothing remotely difficult about any of this.

The only problem is saying it without proof, except that every inexplicable thing Trump does proves it.
