Devin Nunes Gets A Pretty Basic Fact Wrong In Defending His Memo
Nunes suggested that Donald Trump had never met with George Papadopoulos. There's a photo of them sitting at the same table.

And we certainly didn't have a national security meeting right here:

Thanks Perking

No sir.

I do not recall any conversations or meetings or anything of that nature. Nothing at all really after the turn of the century. It's a part of my endearing Southern charm.

Thanks for the lovely new thread, Perking.

Just to be clear what's happened.

Devin Nunes is chairman of the House intelligence committee, investigating Russian interference in US government and democracy.

And he just did this:

While appearing on Monday’s edition of “Fox & Friends,” Nunes tried to downplay Papadopoulos’ role in Trump’s campaign.

“As far as we can tell, Papadopoulos never even had met with the president,” Nunes said.

But he knows the president tweeted the photo above. Papadopolous is fourth on the president's right.

I like this move.

Thanks, Perking!

This is a bit dangerous and dictator-ish. Trump didn’t appreciate the Democrats lack of clapping during his State of the Union Address, labelling it “treasonous”. Add the definition of treason to his homework list.

I've got this.

Papadopalous and Trump were in the same room. At the same table. But it wasn't a meeting meeting. They just happened to be at the same table. At the same time.

Read 45's own description of the picture. smile

Perhaps the markets are also being a little treasonous by wiping out Trump’s amazing gains?

Well hello there! Thanks for the new thread.

And Natsku, hope all is progressing well. News of a new thread baby will bring a happy glow to us all! May I suggest if it's a boy you name him "Fred" in honour of these long running ones? grin

This will not end well.

Has it ever occured to you people in your little echo chamber. That he may be right?

PerkingFaintly Tue 06-Feb-18 00:28:43

What Nunes? That Trump's never met Papadopoulos?

Or Trump, that people not clapping him is treasonous?

TheClaws Tue 06-Feb-18 00:39:18

As ever, Amy Siskind is on point. We should never see this type of message as normal; but we are beginning to accept it. This is not how the leader of a country communicates, ever, and it should not be ever be considered normal.

Never normalize that the man-child who is supposed to be running our country is incompetent, mentally unfit and seeks to destroy our democracy to protect himself and stay in power.

PerkingFaintly Tue 06-Feb-18 00:41:05

Or Trump, that Don jr's meeting with the Russian lawyer was mainly about adoption?

When Don jr claims (and released his emails to prove) the meeting was about getting dirt from the Russian government about Hillary?

ginghambox about what exactly? Do tell.
