    Is Russia and the Philippine press lying or is Trump?

    So far Trump has said one thing and the other countries press has said another


    1. Trump says he spoke with Putin about election meddling. Putin's press secretary says they didn't.

    2. Trump says he spoke with Duterte about human rights. Duterte's press secretary says they didn't.

    Where is God when you need Him? What's going on Big Guy? We could use a little help here. How about a little parting of the Red Sea action, maybe some locusts, killing of the first born stuff? We're getting dragged into hell by a bunch of fucking morons and all we get are either Rah Rah types too stupid to see how insane it all is, or admonitions that we should have opted for a kindler, gentler devil that wouldn't fuck us quite so hard in the short term, and that anything else is unrealistic.

    Sorry, but this one was so stupid I had to invoke the Almighty.

    Press secretaries lie as much as politicians.

    The truth? Who knows...

    Duterte would probably go public if trump nagged him about his extra judicial killings.. Duterte has already yelled at the UN, EU, Pope, and US in the past about it.

    Seems a bit crass though that trump did talk crap about another US potus with a leader on another nation.

    Trump has no filter.

    That's one of the worst things, and best things about him.

    I hope the Donald Trump of America can get along with the Donald Trump of the PI.

    I thought they would either get along very well, or hate each other.

    They are too much alike...

    trump probably likes extra judicial killings so I doubt he would have talked to Duterte about stopping it.

    In my mind
    The president clearly will make up shit that he thinks will portray him in a tough guy or smart light, given his history of doing just that.

    When it comes to tough guys, I think both Duterte and Putin make him look like a sniveling wimp. As none of the three have any credibility on much of anything, I tend to think that Trump has the added motivation to lie, that being to impress his feckless and constantly amazed fan base, so I have to say Trump is full of shit on these issues, by virtue of having more reason to lie.

    Someone beat you to it: Trump and the Kremlin are telling 2 different stories

    lol

    But, anyhow... Yeah, Peskov is a corrupt, lying scumbag. For those who missed it, I wrote much about him here:
    Kremlin spox on Manafort

    He'd say whatever Putin told him to say, with a straight faced smile. Total fucking snake...

    But, is Trump much better? Nope...

    So... I think you have two snakes, each rattling to their respective home audiences, each saying different things, of course...

    Yeah, who would ever have guessed that there were snakes at the highest level of politics?

    Besides everyone, I mean...
