Oh my are heads exploding again…
Democrats and their media stooges are working overtime to pre-blame any underperformance in next year’s presidential election on – you guessed it – Russia and on Friday, President Trump had a bit of fun with a wonderful trolling of the hysterics.
On the day that the pathetic remains of former President Jimmy Carter called for an investigation into Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 election, the leader of the free world was in Osaka, Japan to represent the USA at the annual G-20 summit and much to the fury of the resistance, he sat down with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.
During a photo shoot between the heads of the two global nuclear superpowers, a noisy member of the press gaggle intervened to make trouble by asking Trump whether he had warned Putin to not meddle in the upcoming election and like a veteran fisherman with his prey thrashing on the hook, the POTUS leaned over to his fellow world leader and triggered a pulsating wave of Twitter outrage from the usual conspiracy theorists and whining cranks.

Question: "Will you tell Russia not to meddle in the election?"

Via The Daily Caller, “Trump Smiles, Warns Putin Of Meddling With Upcoming Election”:
President Donald Trump issued a casual warning about meddling in the upcoming election to Russian President Vladimir Putin Friday at the G-20 summit.
Trump and Putin met for the first time in almost a year Friday ahead of discussions about mending the tense relationship between the two countries. Towards the end of the meeting, a journalist asked Trump if he was going to tell Putin not to meddle in the 2020 election.
“Yes, of course I will,” Trump replied, causing Putin to laugh.
“Don’t meddle in the election, please,” Trump said twice, wagging his finger at Putin.
Judging from Putin’s reaction he got a real kick out of it just as he probably has been laughing his ass off at the ridiculous conspiracies and collusion delusion that have driven so much of the anti-American opposition into the throes of madness out of a refusal to accept the reality that Hillary sucked as a candidate and was rejected by voters.
For good measure, Trump kicked it up a notch with another joke that is guaranteed to have the fake news peddlers yowling like scalded cats.
Trump also bonded with Putin over a scorn for journalists.
“Get rid of them. Fake news is a great term, isn't it? You don’t have this problem in Russia, but we do.”
“We also have,” Putin answered, in English. “It’s the same.”

Via The Hill, “Trump jokes with Putin about ‘fake news’ at G-20 summit”:
President Trump on Friday shared a laugh with Russian President Vladimir Putin over frustration with journalists.
Trump took a jab at the press as they were ushered out of the room ahead of a bilateral meeting with Putin at the Group of 20 summit, according to Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs, who is traveling with the president.
“Get rid of them. Fake news is a great term, isn’t it? You don’t have this problem in Russia, but we do,” Trump said.
Putin responded in English, “We also have. It’s the same.”
The two men chuckled about the exchange, Jacobs reported.
And Oh Lordy were the Democrats ever beside themselves including bumbling Beto O’Rourke who increasingly resembles an aging stoner whose brain has long been rendered into bong sludge.
Sitting next to the leader of a country that successfully invaded our democracy, Trump once again refused to stand up for America and instead chose to side with Russia and its dictator, Vladimir Putin. https://t.co/kGRhO48Xhx

More chatter from the peanut gallery:
A reporter asked if Trump would tell Putin not to meddle in U.S. democracy again. "Of course I will," Mr. Trump said with a wry smile, pointing at Putin and saying, "don't meddle in the election."
He's betraying our country right in front of our eyes. https://t.co/rSGWLGltJd

Per NYT: At G-20 reporter asks Trump if he would tell Putin not to meddle in American elections. Trump then says to Putin, “Don’t meddle in the election.”
Then, wagging his finger in a lighthearted way, he repeats, “Don’t meddle in the election.”
Now THAT will scare Putin.

Trump with a smirk to Putin at G20 summit: “Don’t meddle in the election.” He then repeats himself with a more serious expression on his face. But doesn’t seem as if he’s really issuing much of a warning.

Trump continues to have a blast at the expense of the tinfoil hatters and jittery media types who already have a sick feeling in the pits of their stomachs that 2020 is going to be deja vu all over again and you have to hand it to him, he is not only living rent-free in their heads but they are paying him to stay there.
