Since the 2016 election there has been an on-going tale that the Russians were responsible for the tampering…..and of course the Trumpians out there have accused everyone with the exception of Putin and his gang of thugs…..so make my Trumpian readers happy I will pass on the words of Putin about the tampering allegations….
US leaders are hitting out at Vladimir Putin after statements he made appeared to some to be anti-Semitic. The Russian president was defending his government in an interview with NBC News’ Megyn Kelly Saturday when he said Jews may have been behind 2016 election meddling. “Repulsive Putin remark deserves to be denounced, soundly and promptly, by world leaders,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal from Connecticut wrote on Twitter following the interview, per the Washington Post. Blumenthal’s sentiment was echoed widely by fellow Democrats in Congress, the Anti-Defamation League, the American Jewish Committee, and others.
The Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports that some Democratic legislators have directly demanded that President Trump take a tougher stance on Russia following its leader’s comments. Putin critics have also assailed the leader for his apparent implication that Russian Jews aren’t true Russians. “Maybe they are not even Russians, but Ukrainians, Tatars or Jews, but with Russian citizenship, which should also be checked,” Putin said, referring to whoever was behind the meddling. Putin went on to suggest a string of other possibilities behind the election disruption, including France or Germany or even America itself. “Maybe the US paid them for this,” he said. “How can you know that? I do not know, either.”
Maybe it was a 400 lb Jew sitting in his mom’s basement eating Cheetohs……now they have a new dialog they can push now since they do not want to believe that Putin could do this deed…..the tampering thing not the accusation of the Jews……
