In an Attempt to Clean Up His Mess, Trump Even Backpedals Like a Little Wet Noodle

From Reuters, reporting from a pool spray before Trump met with Congress:

Trump says Russia actions had no impact on outcome of elections, accepts U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia meddling took place. Trump says he meant to say in Helsinki that he saw no reason why it would not be Russia that interfered in elections. Trump says his administration will move aggressively to repel any efforts to interfere in 2018 election.

You’ve got to be kidding me. What he meant to say was the exact opposite of exactly what he said?

OK, Donny.


Also, this:

His exact quote during the pool spray: “I accept our intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election took place. Could be other people also. A lot of people out there.”

He just can’t bring himself to blame Russia, can he?

Remember what Obama said just earlier today?

“We see the utter loss of shame among political leaders where they’re caught in a lie and they just double-down and they lie some more.”
