Underneath the post, the comments expand upon Hoft's musings: "FIGHT THIS CONSERVATIVES, the media is already twisting this, even Trump instructing him to contact Russia.this is coup, planned by CIA, FBI and Obama, They got caught and are now trying to railroad the right. It is time to rise up and not let them do this," a user identified as JMMCali wrote.
