No, it really doesn't. Anyone with half a brain knows he doesn't do that "think" thing.

But its fake because CE says so and links to disreputable sites and sites that actually contradict the assertions CE makes.

It's all rather comical.

This whole election cycle and its aftermath have reinforced my erstwhile opinion that most people are stupid. I gave them the benefit of the doubt, and look what they did with it!

This is a gift you should prepare for (take a bath) and make as much use as possible of. PAY. ATTENTION.

Your own fuhrer just said that the Russian meddling actually occured. MAKE. UP. YOUR. MIND.

I guess this is how a physically weaker nation defeats stronger enemy. From the inside.

Good strategy I suppose.

Putin gets them all sooner or later.

So CNN is policing itself and enforcing strict journalistic standards on its people?

And making public admissions and retractions when something slips past their controls?

Yeah. That there is a real indictment of their policies.

Good catch. Keep it up.

Trump assured us that it was a hoax, which was incorrect, thanks to Trump's admission. Now, that Trump acknowledges Russian hacking is a fact and not a hoax, what is Trump going to do about it?

Look, an entire day (and almost a half) went by.

How long do you expect him to stick with the same story?

It isn't like he is the President of the United States.

He's just a guy.

Ya know?

He doesn't, which is one of the reasons why he's unfit to be president, especially after he trashed Qatar not knowing that Qatar is an ally of the United States.

Quote:
Trump just slammed US ally Qatar an hour after his administration defended it

President Donald Trump doubled down on his war of words with one of America's top Middle East allies, publicly undercutting one of his own senior aides and potentially threatening the future of a vital US military base.

At a press conference with the president of Romania on Friday, President Trump slammed the country of Qatar, which hosts 11,000 US military personnel at its Al Udeid Air Base and is currently the target of a multi-country diplomatic boycott and blockade in the Middle East led by Saudi Arabia.

Sometimes, I think that Trump is working with the Russians to discredit America. Will Trump take action against Russia for meddling in our election? In my opinion, he won't. In fact, I won't be surprised if Trump works toward lifting sanctions against Russia.

Probably until the next presidential election, if he is not impeached or resigns by then.
