Hollywood is one of the most narcissistic industries on the planet.
Stars who have been validated by their celebrity believe everything they say is righteous and true.
Now one conceited director is making ridiculous claims with no basis about Robert Mueller’s investigation.
The left is waiting in vain for a smoking gun that’s not going to come. They’re hoping Robert Mueller’s investigation into Trump-Russia collusion will yield some document that shows some quid pro quo between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.
It’s not going to happen. Deep down leftists know this, but they’ve become comfortable in their delusion.
Hollywood leftists are particularly good at deluding themselves because it’s what they do for a living.
Director Rob Reiner is a poster child for said delusion.
Reiner has worked in the business for over 40 years, so he’s grown accustomed to being listened to. He’s also a smoldering leftist, so he has a compounded sense of unearned moral virtue.
Reiner has railed non-stop against Trump for two years now, and his rancor has only risen since Trump took office.
Reiner has called Trump a traitor, a racist, and everything in between.
Now Reiner triumphantly proclaimed that Mueller proved Trump colluded with Russia because he’s indicting 12 Russians for hacking:
It is now crystal clear that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia in the attack on our Democracy. At this point the only way Trump can avoid the consequences of his crimes is to invoke the Moron Defense. “I was too stupid to obstruct or conspire.” VOTE!!!

First of all, an indictment — especially one against a foreign agent outside the jurisdiction — means very little.
An indictment simply means a prosecutor is allowed to take a case to trial in order to prove guilt. An old prosecutor joke is that the District Attorney could “indict a ham sandwich” if he wanted to.
An indictment is not proof of anything.
The American people haven’t even seen sufficient proof that the DNC servers were indeed hacked, and not breached by a leak.
Former FBI Director James Comey and former Homeland Security Chief Jeh Johnson both testified before Congress that their agencies weren’t even allowed to examine the DNC servers; only a third-party company hired by the DNC was permitted to look at them.
It seems strange that the left isn’t concerned in getting to the bottom of that. One would think they might have interest in whether or not there’s a leaker in their midst.
Reiner continued with his inanity:
It’s this simple: The United States of America was attacked by a foreign enemy power and our President refuses to defend us.

What Reiner’s tweet is supposed to mean remains unclear. What does Reiner mean by “defend us?”
Start a war with Russia, something Hillary Clinton teased during the 2016 campaign?
Supposedly Reiner means Trump should be tough on Russia like Obama was when he drew a red line in Syria, then did nothing when Russian agents gassed Syrians. Or when Obama did nothing when Putin annexed Crimea. Or when Obama whispered to Russian President Medvedev on a hot mic that he’d have more “flexibility” once he won the 2012 election.
Instead Trump has armed the Ukrainians against the Russians when Obama refused, he issued harsh sanctions on the Russians, and he pulled out of the Iran deal, which stopped the sale of Russian weaponry to the Iranian military.
Reiner and other leftists have become great at ignoring and distorting facts to fit a political agenda.
Reiner will have plenty of time to cook up more fantasies about Trump as he waits for Mueller to finally drop a something-burger.
