That’s some of the hate I was talking about. You’ve been duped. Let me remind you of one of the claims.
While President’s Trump and Putin stood side by side at a press conference in Helsinki some reporter said,
Just now President Putin denied having anything to do with the election interference of 2016. Every US intelligence agency has concluded that Russia did. Who do you believe? … 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?"
That’s the hate I’m talking about. One purpose of that conference was to improve relations with Russia. How do you do that by accusing Putin to his face in public of lying? Everyone knows Russia has always interfered as much as they can, though they can’t actually corrupt the vote totals (like the Democrats are doing right now in Florida).
Can’t you see the hate? That reporter in particular, wanted President Trump to fail. So he rudely and hatefully jammed that in his face and demanded that he either fail by calling Putin out, or soft pedal it and thus give FakeNews CNN a story that he lied.
President Trump very wisely folded that discussion back to the FBI’s refusal to investigate the DNC’s computer, which had been hacked, probably by Russians. And Hillary’s missing emails (since Hillary was known to have collaborated with Russians).
When he said, “President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today,” I knew he was blowing smoke. It’s obvious. But it’s all he could do when confronted with the filthy hatred of that reporter. By the way, it was probably a totally true statement, even if irrelevant.
