Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, October 31, 2017

When Donald Trump visited The Washington Post in March 2016 to be interviewed by the newspaper's editorial board, publisher Fred Ryan opened the session by asking whether the candidate could reveal any members of his foreign policy team, which he had not yet unveiled. George Papadopoulos was the third person Trump highlighted. "He's an energy and oil consultant, excellent guy," Trump said of Papadopoulos. ... Now that Papadopoulos has pleaded guilty to making a false statement to FBI investigators, however, Trump's team is casting him not as "excellent" but as practically nonexistent. "The only thing I know about George Papadopoulos, frankly, is what's in the actual indictment," Trump's personal attorney, Jay Sekulow, told CNN on Monday afternoon.

In March, the president's spokesman at the time, Sean Spicer, claimed in a media briefing that [Paul] Manafort "played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time."

It was an outlandish claim, given that Manafort had been campaign chairman.

Of course he's a liar. It's why he's in legal trouble.

Difficult to see what that has to do with anything. In the end, Donald will be saying the same thing about Don Jr.

Brilliant comment by Trump about someone in a position to point to where the bodies are hidden.

I love the picture titled Trump's "National Security Team" that has George in it.

Added. Trump will lie about knowing anybody, no matter how ridiculous. Someday he'll be saying "Donald Trump Jr.? I barely know him."

Wasn't that the band of Webster's dad?

And he and his spokesperson call these people - people who once worked for him - liars and longtime bad guys! Like that helps his reputation.

SOP for Trump. Did the same thing with Felix Sater. Worked with Sater for years, Flew him around on Trump's jet. Now he says he wouldn't recognize him.

George, this is Tiffany. I barely know either of you, but many people have told me she's my daughter.

Isn't being a liar a prerequisite for working for Trump. They are all proven liars.
I bet Mueller has evidence to back up his claims.

In a year Trump will be describing Kushner as "some skinny kid from the city I never liked who follows my daughter around."

Or apparently without thinking it all the way through.

It doesn't look good for Trump as a supposed manager when he personally bashes the "best people" working for him.

Man this winning thing is getting out of hand. Trumpy, slow down. Save some for later.
