Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

President Donald Trump told G7 leaders that Crimea is Russian because everyone who lives there speaks Russian, according to two diplomatic sources. Trump made the remarks over dinner last Friday during a discussion on foreign affairs at the G7 summit in Quebec, Canada, one of the diplomats told BuzzFeed News. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity as they were not authorised to speak on the matter.

Does Putin move his lips when Trump talks?

If true, this is beyond stupid and Trump deserves to be harshly criticized and censured for this, not for silly awkward moments like when both he and a NK general had a brain fart.

Nobody's even interested if there are tapes of this? Or someone who's willing to go on the record about these comments?

He spoke to a room full of diplomats, Buzzfeed and Julia Ioffe are credible journalists and the remarks are is consistent with all the ass-kissing Donnie does for his pal Putt Putt.

Pres Putin wanted Crimea for Balaklava, the submarine base carved out of the mountain. It is a submarine base that has access to non-freezing waters.

It is also why Pres Putin is cozying up to (looking to take over) Turkey, so his subs can pass through the straits unnoticed by NATO.

no one is looking for an indictment...more like, "can you believe what a moron he is". a teachable moment for trump supporters who have children. point out that they can ride the short bus all the way to the white house

Okay, so this is very serious, something that should bring people on all sides of the aisle together against him, and all people here want to do is drool over their own zingers?

Stick a fork in us. We're done.

@#11 ... so this is very serious, ...

Yup.

It makes one wonder what ever happened to the policy of "politics stop at the water's edge" approach.

Trump doesn't work for putin, he's just showing us all exactly how a president who worked for putin WOULD act. He loves doing impressions.

Great. That means Texas belongs to Mexico, because a majority know how to speak Spanish. Thanks, Trumpvoters©, competency was sooooo overrated anyway.

Interesting video from History Channel...

Start around 17 minutes 40 seconds for the sub base. Plan to watch at least 10 or so minutes of the video.

Even when trump is gone, trump supporters will remain. Trump was the sign they were waiting for that stupidity and bigotry no longer need hide in the shadows. Now their every ignorant or racist whim is catered to and they will demand that from anyone they vote for from here on out.

Repubs saw that trump won by promoting ignorance and cruelty, so that's what they'll all do from now on. Why do you think all the respectable repubs are retiring? Get ready for all the copycat trumps. It's a race to the bottom from here.

This isn't going away.

"Buzzfeed and Julia Ioffe"

Never heard of her, and buzzfeed is notorious for posting obnoxious clickbait articles. I'm not saying that necessarily invalidates it, but you'd think people taking it seriously would be looking for something to corroborate it that can be used to censure him or give credibility to a campaign ad, instead of just joking about it and slapping themselves on the back at how clever they think they are.

Now, now. I'm sure there's still thousands of racist statues throughout the South for you to take comfort in.

There are millions of people all over Ukraine who speak Russian. My daughter in law is Ukrainian and she speaks Russian, hates Russia and Putin with a passion. It's a language not a nationality.

That makes Trump Big Brother, because he talks in Double Speak...

"/s?"

Nope. If this is actually true, and all his most strident critics want to do is sit around and make jokes about it, then there really is no hope in defeating him. Unless we can find another source to corroborate it, he'll be able to brush it aside as fake news.

He brushes anything and everything away as fake news, unless it profits him.

Crimea is Russian because they ethnically cleansed it with forced deportations when they took it back. It's not even the first time that's happened.

Okay then. You've already given up and conceded defeat.

Russian TV show host Olga Skabeeva on Russia's state television network earlier this week: "Crimea is ours, Trump is ours!"

Remember when Obama was constantly called an "embarrassment"?

Yeah. The embarrassments are the people who think Trump is doing a good job while Obama was a disaster.

Seriously, I think anybody who still supports Trump should have their right to vote revoked.
