Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, January 15, 2018

Let's go to the tape. Again and again. President Donald Trump on Sunday misquoted himself in a tweet complaining about how he had supposedly been misquoted in a scrutinized Wall Street Journal interview. The Journal soon released audio of the interview to prove the president said what it reported, and the White House followed up minutes later with a seemingly identical recording trying to prove the Journal wrong. "The Wall Street Journal stated falsely that I said to them 'I have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un' (of N. Korea). Obviously I didn't say that. I said 'I'd have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un,' a big difference. Fortunately we now record conversations with reporters ... ... and they knew exactly what I said and meant. They just wanted a story. FAKE NEWS!" he wrote over two tweets. Within minutes, the Journal released audio from the interview that seemed to clearly show Trump's comment had been reported right the first time.

I was LMAO when I heard about this. And there he is on tape saying it. What a MORON or is it Alzheimer's? How can you possibly work in the White House and have an ounce of moral character at this point?

I wonder how long it took Mueller to request the White House hands over any recordings they have made after the White House response?

I'm just curious. Why do you think Mueller would be intereted?

Mueller would be interested for the same reason Watergate investigators were interested when they learned Nixon had recordings.
Remember when the Trump-Comey he said/he said and then Trump hinted at the idea that there may be a record of the conversation and Comey's response was "Lordy, I hope are tapes"?
If Mueller is investigating obstruction then such a recording would be crucial in verifying whose account is correct.

The worst part is that his supporters will believe that he never said it because he said he never said it. Reality does not interfere with their worship of the Trump.

He is by far the biggest embarrassment to disgrace the office of POTUS.

I'm not a Donald Trump apologist at all, how many of you listened to the recording? I very clearly heard him say "I'd". He then said "I would... I have relationships..." and the quote doesn't pick show "I would". I think the following "I would" suggests he was thinking about having just said "I'd".
