Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, March 08, 2018

This is the first of two excerpts adapted from Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin's War on America and the Election of Donald Trump by Michael Isikoff, chief investigative correspondent for Yahoo News, and David Corn, Washington bureau chief of Mother Jones. David Corn @DavidCornDC SCOOP: In early 2015 Trump met at Trump Tower with two of the guys who would arrange the infamous 6/16 meeting where Manafort, DJT Jr., and Kushner hoped to get Russian "dirt" on Clinton. The kicker: Trump partied with Russian oligarchs at Vegas nightclub shut down over "lewd" acts involving women and urine:

More from the article:

The next night, toward the end of the Miss USA broadcast, Trump hit the stage to announce that the Miss Universe pageant would be held the coming November in Russia. In front of the audi­ence, the Agalarovs and Trump signed the contract for the event. Trump declared, "This will be one of the biggest and most beautiful Miss Universe events ever." On the red carpet earlier that evening, Trump had hailed Emin and Aras Agalarov: "These are the most powerful people in all of Russia, the richest men in Russia."

Two days later, Trump expressed his desire on Twitter to become Putin's "new best friend." Emin quickly responded with his own tweet: "Mr. @realDonaldTrump anyone you meet becomes your best friend -- so I'm sure Mr. Putin will not be an exception in Moscow."

Why Trump had reason to dislike the Russian sanctions:

In this environment, the plans for the Trump Tower in Moscow crumbled. According to the Trump Organization, Ivanka Trump, after touring Moscow with Emin, killed the deal for business reasons. But Rob Goldstone suspected the demise of Trump's project with the Agalarovs influenced Trump's view of sanctions: "They had interrupted a business deal that Trump was keenly interested in."

That deal was dead. But Trump's involvement with Russia and Putin was not done.

The only Russia obsession consistently in the news, and here on the Retort, comes from the left.

"The only Russia obsession consistently in the news, and here on the Retort, comes from the left."

Yeah, we're just imagining all the meetings, loans, etc. coming from Russia to members of the Trump administration. The attempts to paint this as a crazy Democratic obsession are laughable.

Looks like someone hit the "Reset" button on your talking points!

Now go wipe yourself with a cloth, you stink.

If the pee-pee tape does exist, this is how I think it happened, simulation:

Among the club's regular acts cited by the judge was one called "Hot for Teacher," in which naked college girls simulate urinating on a professor. In another act, two women disrobe and then "one female stands over the other female and simulates urinating while the other female catches the urine in two wine glasses."

No fuss, no muss, no germs. Just the titillation.
