Disgraced former President Trump’s interview with Meet the Press’s new host Kristen Welker went about as badly for him as you would expect. Here’s some new clips from Sunday’s airing of the chat starting with when Trump said it was his idea to try to dispute the 2020 election, completely undermining the “advice of counsel” defense he was supposed to be using in his DC trial:
Next he claims he simply “assumed” Nancy Pelosi had it under control on January 6th and was calling for backup to remove the insurrectionists from the Capitol with no input from him.
Here Trump denies that he would hand over large swaths of Ukrainian territory to Russia and then says he could have made a deal in which Russia gets to keep large swaths of Ukrainian territory.
Trump is reminded how the Russians have bombed Ukrainian maternity wards and then says he had a very good relationship with dictator Vladimir Putin during Donald’s failed presidency.
The fat bastard came very perilously close to acknowledging he lost the 2020 election.
