Trump: "Looks Like Russians Were Behind Poisoning"

Speaking in the Oval Office following a photo-op with the visiting Irish PM, US President Donald Trump has said it appears that Russia was behind the attack on former double agent Sergei Skripal.

A member of the press corps asked the president if he thinks Russian President Vladimir Putin was behind the attack, prompting Trump to respond that “it looks like it.”

“I’ve spoken with the [British] prime minister and we are in deep discussions. It’s a very sad situation,” he continued.

“It certainly looks like the Russians were behind it. Something that should never, ever happen and we’re taking it very seriously as, I think, are many others.”

Somehow, we are sure, the Left will find a way to explain why a "puppet of Putin" would unload more sanctions, issue a joint statement decrying Russia's actions, and now publicly state that it looks like Russia did it.

Of course, that's not all. As Benjamin Weingarten (@BHWeingarten) notes, the Trump administration has:

  • Armed Ukrainians

  • Sold missile defense to Poland

  • Upped EU military sales

  • Crushed Russian mercenaries

  • Threatened #Russia-backed #IranDeal

  • Oriented nuke/missile defense towards Russia

Does Schiff think these are all "false flags?"

Yep.

It amazes me that there are so many comments on here that "ignore" or "disregard" the fact that Trump's dumbass is going along with this shit show.  I know, time for another "12D chess" comment, right?

The man is every bit the dick-headed clown he has been called.  People like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity are destroying any credibility they EVER had by kissing this guy's ass and making excuses for his ridiculous behavior and bone dead stupid remarks.

Trump is one stupid son of a bitch.  And you can down vote me and talk all you want about trolling and whatever dimension of chess, and it won't change the fact that he is a stupid, complicit sack of shit......in my opinion.  Oh, he has an ego.  No doubt he is an extreme narcissist....and most of them are as stupid as they come.  Never stupid about getting what they want.....it's just what they want is stupid. 

At least it didn't cost me anything when I voted for him.  Now the back-end cost will be enormous.  Last month: largest deficit month in history and most interest paid in a month.  Yeah, Trump is MAGA by running the tab up even higher than the previous two dickheads.  All you Trumptards are only excited about it because you are hoping you will get some this time.  This buffoon either burns down the dollar and the US or provokes Russia into nuking our asses.

Moon of Alabama has a good article today discussing the alleged poisoning. Here: http://www.moonofalabama.org/2018/03/theresa-mays-novichok-claims-fall-…. One of the Russian chemists who supposedly worked on the stuff published a book which contains the formulas. So any sophisticated chemical lab could have made the stuff. So where's the evidence that only Russians could have done it?

bshirley1968 may have a point about Trump's intelligence -- or maybe Trump is truly just an evil POS.  Witness his latest nominations for Secretary of State and CIA Director.  Was he ever really anti-war?  For damn sure, he was never pro-liberty.

Either Trump is dumb as a rock, or his election was preordained (as a fall-back option to the self-anointed queen of criminasl who is still on the loose) and a continuum of what the last three have done (only now the veil is being reveled so the 800-pound-Matzo-ball-gorilla-in-the-room is seen in the light of day).

Trump knows full well that this story is made-up in order to corner Russia and Putin. Not sure if he understands how dangerous the situation is and that he is being cornered as well: While it is simply not possible for him to say "no, I firmly believe this story stinks to heaven" he might instead try to get the most out of this "situation" by trying to mediate a kind of compromise so that ultimately both, the Russians and the Europeans owe him gratitude to have contributed to solve this potentially "hazardous" situation.

This could prove a fatal  miscalculation by Trump. He is playing with nuclear matches as one party aims at total submission if not destruction of Russia: Nato. Debating a bunch of liberal pussies in the US or in Davos is one thing. Trying to be outsmart an evil international multibillion dollar crime syndicate for which killing people by the millions is daily business is another.

Yeah,well,he is a born & bred New Yorker,Yankee as they come,along with most of the((( people)))

he knows& associates with.

He actually gets uncomfortable when he is away from New York very long.

Speaking not just for myself,I voted for him because his last name wasn't Clinton or Bush,knowing full well he isn't really that great of a businessman ,good at leveraging debt often on other's  money.

Be a good clown at children's birthday parties, maybe making balloon animals at bat mitzvahs .

I don't  know if it is a fact, but his demeanor suggests he doesn't read much. 

None of this is a surprise to me.

A "Trump had to happen" it is the natural state when the system becomes 100% corrupt.

The population are being sold down the shitter and it is exactly the same in every western nation.

Trump is no more than the event before a reset and an event that precedes every reset.

The reset will dreadful for the majority of people potentially initiating WW3 or civil wars.

Because only the most corrupt benefit.

Would someone please start to distinguish between Russia and Russians. London is the home of the whole Yeltsin era corruption survivors. At the time arsenals and labs were open for theft. (Some even suspect Kim's rockets date from this period). There is plenty of vengence open between all the different clans of that time.

If you and the Putin Sack-lickers that frequent ZH stipulate that he is a modern dictator and the Russian leadership are corrupt, power-mongering oligarchs far worse on the world stage than nearly every leader on the planet, I think we can come to a meeting of the minds. The policies of the Russian state and its neo-tsars are not necessarily reflective of all its people. Same as it has been everywhere for all time.

My hunch is it was a hit to keep fanning the flames, and favored media narrative, the Russians are coming, the Russians are coming. But as always, the money changers decide who is taken out, down, ticket gets punched etc.

All this to divert attention regarding the major ass reamings (via out of control corruption of said money changers) of the vast number of hapless commoners, around the globe. Good work if you can get it ..
