Unbelievable! If you didn’t see the press conference today, please view the entirety of it.
Trump stood beside Putin today in Helsinki and took the word of a dictator over the US DOJ and CIA that Russia did not interfere with the 2016 election. Asked by a reporter if Trump stood with the US or Russia and Trump sided with Russia! Trump refused to blame Putin for Moscow’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and told reporters that “both countries” were responsible for the poor state of their relations.
He reiterated that there was no collusion between his presidential campaign and Russia, slammed special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the election as a “disaster” and shared conspiracy theories about why it’s important for the FBI to take the Democratic National Committee’s computer server.
Trump: Where are Hillary’s servers, I don’t believe Putin had anything to do with it but where are those servers, and 33 thousand emails. Freaking Unbelievable!
That’s what Trump said in public, who knows what he said in private at their closed door 2 hour meeting.
The press conference was also telling in their body language. Putin jumped up on the step in front of the podium looking jovial, smiling, and happy while Trump looked weak and intimidated. You know when you get a barely mediocre performance review.
Remember when the GOP went ballistic because President Obama wore a tan suit. Now what will the GOP do after this disgraceful performance of Trump at the summit? Not what will they say or tweet but what will they actually do to stop this embarrassment of a president?
Will they hold up the Supreme Court nominee and other judicial nominees until after the November elections?
I seriously doubt it.
It’s time for Congressional Republicans to start impeachment hearings on this president and it’s time for the Democratic leadership in Congress to show real anger and do whatever it takes to get this man out of office.
And it’s time for every American to get involved in the political situation and let your voices be heard.
Remember to Vote Blue in November because our democracy depends on it.
