The mainstream media, Dems and the left are celebrating what they are describing as President Trump admitting that Russia helped him win the 2016 presidential election.
Here’s what happened…
On Thursday morning, Trump tweeted:
“Russia, Russia, Russia! That’s all you heard at the beginning of this Witch Hunt Hoax…And now Russia has disappeared because I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected. It was a crime that didn’t exist. So now the Dems and their partner, the Fake News Media,………say he fought back against this phony crime that didn’t exist, this horrendous false accusation, and he shouldn’t fight back, he should just sit back and take it. Could this be Obstruction? No, Mueller didn’t find Obstruction either. Presidential Harassment!”
….say he fought back against this phony crime that didn’t exist, this horrendous false accusation, and he shouldn’t fight back, he should just sit back and take it. Could this be Obstruction? No, Mueller didn’t find Obstruction either. Presidential Harassment!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 30 May 2019
That one part where he says “Russia helping me to get elected” is being reported as a confession, a slip up that apparently reveals Trump’s true state of mind — forgetting that he also called the idea “a crime that didn’t exist,” and a “false accusation” in the very same tweets. Clearly, the President was rejecting allegations about collusion.
The New York Times ran a story about President Trump’s comments with the headline, “Trump Admits to Russia ‘Helping Me to Get Elected’.” The story was shared all over social media as mainstream media news outlets and the anti-Trumpers helped circulate the fake news story.
The New York Times also said that Trump “has avoided saying publicly that Russia helped him win the presidency in 2016 through its election interference.” The implication of that sentence is that Trump might have said so, or thought so, privately. It also presumes Russia actually helped him win.
On the White House lawn, Trump said: “No, Russia did not help me get elected. Do you know who got me elected? Do you know who got me elected? I got me elected. Russia didn’t help me at all. Russia, if anything, I think, helped the other side. What you ought to ask is this: do you think the media helped Hillary Clinton get elected?”
Fake news is in full force this year,
