Democrats and their allies in mainstream media have continuously tried to paint President Trump as some Russian asset working against the American Republic and its interests.
A tweet being widely shared online shows just how far the Washington Post is willing to go to push that Russian narrative.
The tweet shows four pictures of separate headlines which shows a clearing escalation from a member of Congress being a “Russian asset,” to a congressional leader, to President Trump, and to a claim of “the entire Republican Party becoming a Russian asset.”
Check out these headlines:

It's nice that Trump made Democrats realize the existence of Russia. Welcome to the party. We have been here for 30 years.

Desperation time at the Washington Post. Sad to see a once respected newspaper flush themselves down the toilet.

I don’t like Trump at all, but can’t reasonable people acknowledge what an absolute joke The Washington Post has become? Can most people not see the severe shortcomings of both sides?
