Quote of the Day: Wouldn’t, Not Would

CNN

We finally have the official walkback. Yesterday, asked about who interfered with the US election in 2016, Trump said this with Vladimir Putin standing at his side:

I don’t see any reason why it would be Russia.

But wait! Today, safely back home in Washington DC, Trump says that he meant to say this:

I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia

That clears everything up!

Jesus Christ. The ability of this man to lie with a straight face in front of dozens of witnesses is just unbelieveable.

UPDATE FROM INCREDULOUS CNN REPORTERS: Dana Bash: “It almost makes it worse.”

Gloria Borger: “The president looked like he was a hostage in a hostage tape, reading something he didn’t want to read.”

Jim Sciutto: “A letter and an apostrophe? This is Orwellian.”

Nick Walsh: “You can tell by his body language, he didn’t mean wouldn’t.”

Brooke Baldwin: “How gullible does he think America and the world is?”
