The moment began when Reuters’ Jeff Mason asked Trump during a joint presser with Russian President Vladimir Putin to respond to a tweet that read, “Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!”
Mason followed-up by asking, “Do you hold Russia at all accountable for anything in particular. And if so, what would you consider [that] they are responsible for?”
Rather than answering with, “Yes, I believe my own people when they say Russia interfered in the 2016 election, and I confronted Putin about it,” Trump went his usual route, monologuing nonsensically about how the U.S. is somehow to blame in all of this.
“I hold both countries responsible," Trump said. “I think that the United States has been foolish. I think we’ve all been foolish. We should’ve had this dialogue a long time ago, a long time, frankly, before I got to office. And I think we’re all to blame.”No appearance by the VSG would be complete without some word-salad bragging, and he delivered today on that score:
“I beat Hillary Clinton easily and, frankly, we beat her and I’m not even saying from the standpoint – we won that race,” he said. “It’s a shame that there can even be a little bit of a cloud over it. People know that. People understand it. But the main thing and we discussed this also: zero collusion and it has had a negative impact upon the relationship of the two largest nuclear powers in the world. We have 90 percent of nuclear power between the two countries. It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous what’s going on with the probe.”Shills and slavish cult members, this is not 5-D chess. This guy is winging it on stages where history is being decided.
Spewing gobbled-gook (and off-the-cuff appeasement) while the most ambitious authoritarian on the planet looks on and grins.
Yes, he's made a lot of good moves over the last eighteen months, in a kind of stopped-clock-twice-a-day manner, but this kind of stuff negates it every time.
And he's really outdone himself with this one.
Never could stand the guy and can't stand him now.
