Um … you know Putin admitted meddling in the election, right?
Most of the people in the news media were so focused on Trump’s assorted blarney, that they glossed over this crucial exchange between a reporter and Putin.
REPORTER: Did you want President Trump to win the election and did you direct any of your officials to help him do that?
PUTIN: Yes, I did. Yes, I did.
Yeah, that’s right. Putin publicly admitted meddling in the election right after Trump claimed that Putin was denying it.
