I’ll say the same thing about the press conference as I did about the Strozyk hearing.
Reading the transcript compared to watching event itself is like 2 different worlds.
On paper, with each comment in context, there is little to point at.
Live, the only positive thing I can say is that Trump didn’t come off as bad as Kennedy did in Vienna.
Steve, I’ll throw you a bone. When Trump is off-prompter he is sometimes almost as bad as Obama off-prompter. Almost.
Steve, do you actually believe that saying something is illegal causes nations to stop doing it? Seriously?
@TexTech Point taken. I supply several other links below from a variety of sources across the spectrum. They all show better average wage growth than under the previous administration.
Cherry picking again. And out of context. The specific topic was the DNC server, which the House Judiciary committee (Gohmert) has stated was hacked by a party other than Russia.
Back to Helsinki
I’ve been wondering that, 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? I want to know where is the server and what is the server saying?
With that being said, all I can do is ask the question. My people came to me, Dan Coates 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. But I really do want to see the server.
But I have — I have confidence in both parties. I — I really believe that this will probably go on for a while, but I don’t think it can go on without finding out what happened to the server. What happened to the servers of the Pakistani gentleman that worked on the DNC? Where are those servers? They’re missing; where are they? What happened to Hillary Clinton’s e-mails? 33,000 e-mails gone — just gone. I think in Russia they wouldn’t be gone so easily. I think it’s a disgrace that we can’t get Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 e-mails.
TRUMP: So I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today.
Like I said Steve, you lie to suit your own agenda. Cherry picking and omission is just another form of lying.
I guess I don’t understand why a private meeting between 2 heads of State bothers you.
Did you complain when Obama and Putin met behind closed doors? After his hot mike “flexibility” comment?
No witnesses? What about the translators?
Steve, here’s why you have zero credibility. In your initial post you typed:
“Trump just threw the entire U.S. intelligence community under the bus, emerging from his meeting with Putin in Helsinki, saying that he believes Putin over our own U.S. intelligence assessments. No hacking on the part of the GRU. No interference in the U.S. elections.”
Based on the video and the transcript, he said no such things.
You go on to quote John Brennan who the entire nation knows has repeatedly lied to Congress over a 4-5 year period. You quote John McCain and several other Senators who are essentially sworn enemies of Trump.
You see, Steve, comments made by political opponents do not become facts simply because you want them to be facts. That includes your own comment to me. You created a fantasy news conference to satisfy your bias.
An adult would stand back and present a reasoned analysis of the statements made and then describe what you THINK he meant if the actual statement differs from your opinion. Instead, you pronounced your opinion as fact, despite the absence of actual fact to support you.
Have a nice day.
Steve, unlike you, I rely on facts. Read the transcript instead of the reports.
“TRUMP: So I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today.”
If Obama had said the same you would be coming in your pants.
