  1. Someone is bullshitting here. Yesterday Macron said that Russia are not welcome in G7 without peace in Ukraine. Now a source in the WH comes out with this. Either Macron is lying, Trump is lying, or the “source” for this story is the Kremlin.

    • It’s hard to tell when CNN is the source. They are blinded by ideology. Still, I can’t see Putler coming to the US because he is not welcome by the vast majority, just the commies and the libertarians.

      • Today’s CNN is so hopelessly biased it makes the days of Ted Turner look journalistically rigorous. Back then, at least a few CNN hosts would fake up a just-the-facts mien.
        Now it’s just all opinion,all the time

What is your opinion?
