Just turn on “regular news” to get the comedy version. It’s the same thing.
Russia was touting the fact that their fancy nukes could hit Florida back on March 1, at Putin’s annual address.
“Missile defenses will be useless against it,” Putin bragged.
“Congratulations!” Trump said to Putin after that, for “winning” the Russian election.
Russia denied showing a video of them nuking Florida when asked about it later, because lying works when you have a lot of money and power. Tampa Bay has a report, appropriately titled, “Putin must think people in Florida are dumb.”
Putin smoothly explained to Chris Wallace of Fox News, a network with many ties to Trump, that it wasn’t really Florida in the animated demonstration:
“There was not a caption saying Florida. They could — take a more careful look at it. There was never a caption, ‘Florida.’ “
Right. Just like there was no Russian interference during our 2016 elections, according to President Trump, who met with Putin today, July 16, 2018.
Both Putin and Trump denied any Russian interference with the election, despite the charges against 12 Russian nationals.
Vladimir Putin even offered to “come and work” with Robert Mueller’s team to investigate the Russian meddling.
Trump called it “an incredible offer.”
Here’s a CBS news article:
One journalist got forcibly dragged out after holding up a sign reading, “Nuclear weapons ban treaty.” It seems that Trump and Putin both hate the media, and love censorship.
Before the meeting, Trump called the United States stupid and foolish, tweeting, “Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!”
Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs “liked” the tweet from its official account, and later retweeted Trump’s statement with the comment: “We agree.”
Then Trump called the media “the enemy of the American People!”
There wasn’t much substance to the meeting, other than a little stark honesty and real life “trolling,” while the two discussed things in private, with no public record of what transpired.
Then they had a public press conference that Putin and Russia really enjoyed.
“I wanted Trump to win the election,” said Putin.
Somehow Floridians still support Trump, despite everything.
Just remember all this next time you vote.
It’s not that bad. We’re Florida Strong.
