Click bait Hate machine The Washington Post run their latest hit piece against Trump using a joke by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA ) last year.
The Washington Post released the latest salvo in the media’s effort to take down President Donald Trump on Wednesday: a joke made last year by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) suggesting that Russian President Vladimir Putin pays Trump.
The joke occurred during a private conversation involving the House Republican leadership. The conversation was recorded. The exchange — from the transcript alone, since the Post has not made the audio available — is as follows:
McCarthy: The Russians hacked the DNC and got the opp [sic] research that they had on Trump.
Ryan: The Russian’s [sic] hacked the DNC…
McHenry: …to get oppo…
Ryan: …on Trump and like delivered it to…to who?
McCarthy: There’s…there’s two people, I think, Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump…[laughter]…swear to God.
Ryan: This is an off the record…[laughter]…NO LEAKS…[laughter]…alright?! [Laughter]
Ryan: This is how we know we’re a real family here.
The full context of the conversation is unclear, but the House leadership appeared to be discussing the crisis in the Ukraine, and Russian efforts to spread disinformation there. The apparent target of the joke is Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), whom the Post describes uncharitably as “a fervent defender of Putin and Russia.”
The Post‘s Adam Entous does not explain why he did not post the audio of the conversation, but two reasons seem possible: one, the laughter on the audio would underline the fact that McCarthy’s comments were intended to be humorous; two, the volume of different voices might reveal who had made, and leaked, the recording.
UNHINGED MEDIA WAR ON TRUMP: CNN OBSESSIVE TRUMP COVERAGE, WaPo STAFF APPLAUSE WHEN FAKE RUSSIA-LEAK NEWS BREAKS READERS RECORD
Unhinged liberal media’s war on President Trump! All their lunatic brain care about is to create non-stop barrage of anti-Trump headlines. Washington Post staff, “applause in the newsroom as the Russia-leak scoop breaks the Hollywood Access record for most readers per minute.”
CNN OBSESSED: 92% of airtime on POTUS; 96 critics vs 7 supporters! CNN is foaming in the mouth with their obsession of anti-Trump coverage. Unhinged with hatred?
Washington Post “Fact Checker” columnist Glenn Kessler tweeted on Monday that there was “applause in the newsroom as the Russia-leak scoop breaks the Hollywood Access record for most readers per minute.”
After three and a half hours at his transition office, PEOTUS obama took another 6 minute ride through washington, arriving at 157 pm at the nondescript soviet-style building at 15th and L street that houses the washington post.
Around 100 people–Post reporters perhaps?–awaited PEOTUS’s arrival, cheering and bobbing their coffee cups.
Pool is holding in a van outside, while Mr obama does his washington post interview, and will exercise enormous restraint by ending report before saying what really thinks about this turn of events.
In a series of tweets Tuesday morning, Trump said he had the “absolute right” to reveal “facts” pertaining ISIS to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak for “humanitarian reasons.”
“As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism.”
Trump also tweeted: “I have been asking Director Comey & others, from the beginning of my administration, to find the LEAKERS in the intelligence community…..”
WASHINGTON POST LATEST FAKE TRUMP-RUSSIA NEWS: USES FAKE ANONYMOUS SOURCES, ADMITS TRUMP DIDN’T BREAK ANY LAWS
- Washington Post report admits that it is “unlikely” Trump broke any laws
- Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster: ” The senior officials who were present…on-the-record accounts should outweigh those of anonymous sources. I was in the room, it didn’t happen…The story that came out tonight, as reported is false. ”
(Breitbart ) Current and former U.S. officials, supposedly concerned that President Trump had shared some “highly classified information” with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador to the U.S. last week, leaked that information to the Washington Post in an article published Monday.
However, the report admits that it is “unlikely” Trump broke any laws.
“As president, Trump has broad authority to declassify government secrets, making it unlikely that his disclosures broke the law,” the report said.
In addition, his national security adviser, who was at the meeting, told the Post nothing was shared that was not already publicly known.
“At no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly,” said Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster.
McMaster later told reporters at the White House, “Other senior officials who were present, including the secretary of state, remember the meeting the same way and have said so. Their on-the-record accounts should outweigh those of anonymous sources. I was in the room, it didn’t happen.”
“This story is false. The president only discussed the common threats that both countries faced,” added Dina Powell, Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategy, who also attended the meeting.
Really? From CNN whining about Trump getting two scoops of ice cream while reporters only got one, another fake news outlet Washington Post just added the latest conspiracy theory why Trump fired James Comey, worst FBI director in history, and they believe it’s something to do with height: “Maybe Trump fired Comey for being taller, at 6 feet, 8 inches”
Via the Washington Post:
Facts aren’t facts; truth isn’t true; reality isn’t real.
This is where we are.
It’s no wonder that “Orwellian” is the most widely used adjective derived from the name of a writer. We are living in the most surreal of times.
Several months forward, however, what could have prompted Trump to take action? In a Trumpian world, stalled somewhere between second grade and a prep school locker room, even the ridiculous seems plausible. So, let’s try a wild one: Maybe Trump fired Comey for being taller, at 6 feet, 8 inches. In light of his infatuation with size, one can easily imagine that a 6-foot-3-inch Trump would resent having to look up to the guy who was investigating possible collusion between his campaign and Russia.

VIDEO: RUSSIAN GOVT. PAYS WASHINGTON POST TO PUBLISH THEIR PROPAGANDA NEWS IN U.S. – THANKS TUCKER CARLSON!
Washington Post has Russian secrets! They take money from Russian government to publish their propaganda news. Thanks Tucker Carlson for telling us this secret.
On Tuesday Tucker Carlson had on Erik Wemple the Washington Post media reporter and far left hack. It was the most devastating interview in recent memory
Tucker Carlson opened the interview with this question:
Tucker Carlson: In the past couple of months I’ve seen a lot of stories including some from you accusing people of basically carrying water for the Russian government and the Russian government is in the news today so I thought I’d ask you something I’ve wondered for a long time which is the Washington Post for years, for many years, has literally carried paid propaganda from the Russian government, a section called ‘Russia behind the headlines.’ It looks like news but it’s designed to fool readers into thinking it’s real. And it’s pure propaganda paid for, distributed by the Russian government… Why have you never written about that? How can you attack others when your own paper takes money from the Russian government.
