The Borowitz Report : Putin saddened that Trump Asked Other Foreign Country to Meddle in Election. By Andy Borowitz September 25, 2019

MOSCOW (The Borowitz Report)—Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that he was “saddened and hurt” that Donald J. Trump had asked a different foreign country to meddle in a U.S. election.

“I thought when it came to election meddling that Donald and I were exclusive,” an emotional Putler told reporters. “This feels like a betrayal.”

Putin said that when he read the call summary of the phone conversation between Trump and the President of Ukraine, “I could not believe my eyes. It was just like the conversations Donald and I used to have.”

The Russian leader said that he had considered meddling in the 2020 election to help Trump, but added, “Now I’m not so sure.”

“We had something special, but now that’s gone,” Putin said. “I feel so used.”

    • You are still defending Trumpkov redders? The man who at the admission (or boast to put it more accurately) of his son, had his businesses swilling with putinazi money, hired all those filthy putinoids, justified the invasion of Crimea, ‘requested’ putler to hack Hillary’s emails, advised Zel to sit down with a monster to discuss their ‘problem’ as if it were just a misunderstanding between friends and who has turned his fans into Ukraine-haters and putler-lovers?
      The writer of the piece is from the Dems, who are no friends of Ukraine either, but Trump gave them an open goal.
      The Zel conversation is nothing like enough to justify impeachment though. Even though he did block the tiny amount of money that was supposed to help Ukraine’s military. (Did they get it all yet?). The Biden investigation should go ahead though, if it can be shown that Biden held back a much larger sum from Ukraine in order to get them to lay off Biden Jr. It needs to be made clear to the US public that Manafort’s loyalties were to putler and that Burisma is owned by a putlerite.

    • I’ll break up for Copenhagen now, since i’ll be in hospital there tomorrow. This is my last post for a while. Don’t worry, i’ll be back in a few weeks or less! 😀✌

  1. I slightly adulterated the original copy by sticking in a ‘putler’ in the second para instead of the writer’s spelling.

What is your opinion?
