BS, A Little Dab’ll Do Ya!

From BUSINESS INSIDER:

White House press secretary Sean Spicer contradicted a tweet earlier this morning from President Donald Trump and said “there was nothing” that would cause anyone to think that the controversial meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer had to do with anything other than adoptions.

“Look, you know I’m not going to get into the specifics of this,” Spicer said at Monday’s off-camera press briefing. “But I will say that it is quite often for people who are given information during the heat of a campaign to ask what that is. That’s what simply he did. The President has made it clear through this tweet. And there was nothing, as far as we know, that would lead anyone to believe that there was anything except for a discussion about adoption and the Magnitsky Act.”

If you ask me, I think Twitler plans on throwing Donnie Jr. under the nearest bus.

Hours earlier, Trump tweeted that most politicians would’ve gone to such a meeting to collect opposition research, which is what Trump Jr. admitted the meeting was supposed to be about.

“Most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don Jr. attended in order to get info on an opponent,” Trump tweeted. “That’s politics!”

Trump has admitted previously that Trump Jr. took the meeting with the full expectation that the Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, would provide him with damaging information on soon-to-be Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Trump Jr. said the damaging information never materialized, and that the meeting, which he said lasted 20 or 30 minutes, quickly veered into discussion of the Magnitsky Act, a US law that blacklists Russians accused of human-rights abuses. The law so enraged Russian President Vladimir Putin that he retaliated by barring US citizens from adopting Russian children.

But later last week, additional sources came forward and admitted they too were in on the meeting. One, Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-American lobbyist who served in the Soviet military, told The Associated Press on Friday that Veselnitskaya presented documents to the Trump representatives who attended the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting that she believed detailed the flow of illicit funds to the Democratic National Committee.

In Akhmetshin’s recounting, Veselnitskaya suggested to those in the meeting that they make the contents of the documents public. She said that doing so could help Trump’s campaign, Akhmetshin said.

“This could be a good issue to expose how the DNC is accepting bad money,” he recalled her saying.

Akhmetshin said Trump Jr. then asked whether she had evidence to back up the assertion, to which Veselnitskaya said the campaign would have to do more research on the subject. That’s when Trump Jr. lost interest, Akhmetshin said.

Oh, before I forget. Happy Made in America Week!

  1. No one in the WH can get their story straight. You’d think they’d all meet and discuses exactly what each of them should say. I can hardly believe the stupidity of those people.

    Celebrate what did you say? People have to look long and hard to find a label that says made in America but I do mange on some things. If I want something for my kitchen I go to estates sales where I’m sure to find many small items made in the US.

    As far as Model T bringing back companies from overseas, I doubt that it’ll ever happen.

    • Everyone in the White House is either desperately trying to cover their own asses or lying low and not doing anything so they won’t attract any attention. There is so much backstabbing going on. Nobody wants to take the fall, so there are all kinds of leaks accusing everyone else of one thing or another (and ironically, they are all guilty of what they are being accused of). I would bet that there are a lot of lower level people there who are pissed off that they can’t afford a lawyer while Donnie Jr. gets his legal bills paid with campaign contributions.

  2. I think Twitler plans on throwing Donnie Jr. under the nearest bus.

    I see the tire track already. And does that sign say “hair dressing”? His hair looks like he uses Thousand Island or something.

    They can’t keep their story straight because (a) lying is always tricky since you have to be careful to keep your story straight, and (b) it’s thus even harder when multiple people are involved. In this case, since the multiple people are all dumb, it’s impossible. They can’t decide whether there’s no collusion and the meeting was about something else, or there was collusion but there’s nothing wrong with that, or anybody would have done it, or look look Hillary and Obama did blah blah. They’re floundering.

    In fairness, though, if they did have a meeting to coordinate what everyone should say, the details of the meeting would leak within an hour.

    Putin must have thought Trump and co were the perfect example of Lenin’s “useful idiots”. He should have thought a bit more about the implications of the “idiot” part of the phrase.

    • Infidel,

      I like for each character to have his or her own little calling card, and with Asshole, Jr., I decided on Brylcreem. Its logo is on his jacket in a previous poster.

      This story has more layers than an onion dome. There have been so many lied told already, and I am sure there will be a lot more to come. It’s just too bad that scrutiny will come from federal bodies, so the pardon from Daddy Dearest will take. I hope New Yawk has dug up a lot of good dirt on the crime family.
