A new line of clothing called the “Stupid is as Stupid Does” (SIASD) collection is showing up on the web. People are buying them up much to the chagrin of the Democratic National Campaign Committee (DNCC).
CNN, the DNCC’s official media outlet, in an op-ed titled “Russian bots are using #WalkAway to try to wound Dems in midterms” by David A. Love reported:
The most recent example of this strategy [of Russian interference] is the #WalkAway hashtag, which is presented as a grassroots effort by former Democrats who are critical of the party’s alleged intimidation, confrontation and lack of civility and want people to walk away from the party.
However, #WalkAway has also now been connected to Kremlin-linked Russian bots, and it is now the seventh most popular Russia-influenced hashtag as of this writing, according to the website Hamilton 68, which tracks Russian influence on Twitter as part of the Alliance for Securing Democracy, an initiative of the nonpartisan German Marshall Fund. The purpose of this now-astroturf campaign is to manipulate public opinion by creating the illusion that this is a popular movement. In reality, #WalkAway has become pure propaganda, a psychological operation.
An FBI anonymous source, who leaked it to MSNBC who leaked it to Robert Mueller, reports, “The Stupid is as Stupid Does clothing line was inspired by the controversial alt-right film Forrest Gump who as a child, a gender neutral term, said the following…’stupid is as stupid does!'”
Based on the CNN article by David A. Love, special prosecutor Robert Mueller, according to an unnamed FBI source, will be investigating the manufacturers of the SIASD clothing line. Mueller has already issued a subpoena for Forrest Gump.
The Hillary in 2020 campaign released the following statement:
We know that Russia stole the election from Mrs. Clinton in 2016. Now we see the Russians at it again in 2018. This clothing line has Putin’s prints, no pun intended, all over it. We would not be surprised if this clothing line was secretly designed by Ivanka Trump.
Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, according to an unnamed White House source, gave President Trump, during their closed door meeting in Helsinki, a Stupid is as Stupid Does t-shirt in addition to a soccer ball.
When CNN reporter Jim Acosta accosted, no pun intended, Putin about this gift the Russian president responded, “The Russian government had nothing to do with producing the SIASD t-shirts. As you can clearly see by the label they are made in China.”
President Trump tweeted, “#WalkAway!”
