They can’t help themselves

I recall a Twitter post put forth by Sean Davis of The Federalist just over a year ago. I can't seem to find the original tweet, but it essentially said this:

"President Trump's greatest asset continues to be the idiocy of his most fervent detractors."
An obligatory statement on the shocking nature of a U.S. President taking the word of a former KGB agent over the U.S. intelligence community would adequately sum up Trump's performance at the Helsinki meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin. Hell, the media could have merely played Trump's comments on an endless loop and not utter a word. That alone would have been an effective display of what a disgraceful performance it was.

Ah but as Davis said, anti-Trump folks just can't help but step on the proverbial rake.

Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you??? — John O. Brennan (@JohnBrennan) July 16, 2018
