RUSH: Why Would Russia Meddle In US Elections After Obama Told Putin To “CUT IT OUT”

RUSH: On Saturday Trump said — this makes me laugh too — Trump said that Putin insisted during the meeting on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit that Russia didn’t interfere in the election and that he believed Putin when he told him. “He said he didn’t meddle,” Trump told reporters on Air Force One. “I asked him again. You can only ask so many times. … He said he absolutely did not meddle in our election. He did not do what they are saying he did.”

Trump added that whenever they had met, Putin denied ordering Russia’s election meddling. Trump said, “I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it. … I think he’s very insulted by it, and that’s not a good thing for our country.”

Then Trump said he was surprised at the blowback his comments had received. “What I said there is that I believe he believes it, and that’s very important for somebody to believe. I believe that he feels that he and Russia didn’t meddle in the election.” Well, why would Putin, if Obama told him to stop it? Has everybody forgotten that?


RUSH: You people have forgotten. Obama brought this up in the spring of 2016. Everybody’s worried about Putin meddling. Obama said (paraphrasing), “Don’t worry about it. I saw Putin, and I told him to cut it out. I told him to cut it out.” And the media said, “This is so great. Our guy is so tough, just told Putin to cut it out.” Right.
