Over the last 24 hours we’ve seen nearly universal condemnation of Trump’s public surrender to Vladimir Putin, even from major conservative outlets, even from state television hosts, even from reliable Trump ballwashers such as Newt Gingrich. But somehow all those verbatim quotes and horrified cable news appearances are fake news, according to our demented Glorious Leader. And, no doubt, to millions of his fawning red-hatted sycophants.
While I had a great meeting with NATO, raising vast amounts of money, I had an even better meeting with Vladimir Putin of Russia. Sadly, it is not being reported that way – the Fake News is going Crazy!
