Let Donald “Donald John” Trump tell it, his English not being so good is why that press conference with Russian President Vlad “Poochie Pooh the Election Stealer” Putin went left.
Sitting at the “time out table” that the Republicans placed him at, Donald John read his little statement which went like this, “I thought it would be, may be a little bit unclear on the transcript or unclear on the actual video. In a key sentence in my remarks, I said the word would instead of wouldn’t. The sentence should’ve been, ‘I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia; sort of a double negative.”
Here’s the problem. The questions and Donald John’s answers were as clear as day.
Reuters White House Correspondent Jeff Mason simply asked President Donald Trump if he believed the United States intelligence agencies over Russian President Vladimir Putin, and if he, Donald Trump, would “warn” Vladimir Putin not to interfere in the United States elections again.
There’s the question down below:
“Just now, President Putin denied having anything to do with the election interference in 2016. Every U.S. intelligence agency has
concluded that Russia did. My first question for you sir is, ‘Who do
you believe?’ My second question is would you now, with the whole world watching, tell President Putin, ‘Would you denounce what happened in 2016?’ And would you warn him to never do it again?”
After hearing the questions, President Donald Trump decided he’d blame Hillary Clinton, the server, and the Democratic National Committee for the election meddling the intelligence agencies said the Russians did at the orders of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Donald John told folks:
“You have groups that are wondering why the FBI never took the
server. Why haven’t they taken the server. Why was the FBI told
to leave the office of the Democratic National Committee. I’ve
been asking that for months and months and I’ve been tweeting
it out and calling it out on social media. Where is the server?...
Dan Coats came to me and some others they said they think it’s
Russia. I have President Putin. He just said it’s not Russia. I will
say this, ‘I don’t see any reason why it would be.”
As for that whole bit about warning Putin not to meddle in the United States elections again, well that ain’t ever going to happen.
Let U.S. President Donald Trump tell it Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “strong and powerful” denial of what everybody knows he did is enough for Trump to believe Putin didn’t do it: “I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today. And what he did is an incredible offer. He offered to have the people working on the case come and work with their investigators with respect to the 12 people. I think that’s an incredible offer.”
Welp, that didn’t go over so good; especially that part about the U.S. investigators working with Russia to handle the case involving the 12 military people who were indicted on Friday for interfering in the U.S. elections in 2016.
Republicans and Democrats looked at all of that and were like, “Hell to the naw, naw, naw!”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made it clear that Russia intervened in the U.S. election, and that he was supporting spanking brand new legislation to ensure they didn’t do it again.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) asked one question that's
on everybody’s minds: “A single ominous question now hangs over the White House. What could possibly cause President Trump to put the interest of Russia over those of the United States?”
Unfortunately for President Donald Trump, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov answered that question when he described the meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin as
"magnificent…Better than super."
Mm-hmm, that’s what the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said about the meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
It was "magnificent...Better than super." That's what he, Russian Foreign
Minister Sergey Lavrov, said.
Now, don’t y’all go, sitting around here, waiting for Lavrov to come out and say he misspoke and what he really meant to say was, “It was magnificent and better than super that President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin would agree to meet with each other.” That right there just ain’t happening.
Plus, Russian President Vladimir Putin ain’t about to put Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in time out for expressing his excitement about Russia successfully making the United States President Donald Trump Sr., Russia’s foreign agent.
