You remember the more flexibility after the election...


I only wish I was surprised that the lib media would minimize a promise heard on a live mic (for Obama), ans maximize the almost hear say (for Trump).


CNN gave three times more coverage to the alleged ‘secret meeting’ between President Trump and Vladimir Putin at a G-20 dinner than former President Barack Obama's infamous hot mic gaffe with Russia's former president in 2012, according to a study by the Media Research Center.
www.foxnews.com...

75 minutes on Trump's "story" since Tuesday and 25 minutes for Obama hot mic promise to the Russians.


The study, released on Wednesday by Newsbusters, showed that from the time the news broke late Tuesday afternoon on the previously undisclosed Trump-Putin talk through around midnight, CNN spent over 75 minutes covering the discussion.

Obama’s microphone was on during the exchange where he told Medvedev that “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”

Medvedev responded: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir [Putin].”

According to the MRC study, during the same timeframe on March 26, 2012, CNN spent roughly 25 minutes discussing Obama’s misfire.

We KNOW what Obama said. But what did Donald and Vlad discuss? Know one knows!

Obama's comment lasts a few seconds. Trump spoke for an hour, and who knows what confidential information he let slip out? Last time he blabed to Russions he gave away Israeli top secrets.

His nannies were not there to "shhhhuuush" him, so he could have given away the US missle launch codes, for all we know.

Before you compare the two events, you should make sure that they logically compare.

Go have a nappy.

I still have the sneaky suspicion that they are planning to anounce alien disclosure together. Just imagine the perfect mic drop moment. Trump steps in front of the podium. "Fellow americans and people around the world aliens are real and they have been a long part of our life on earth" "Vladimir Putin play the tape" *mic drop*

Correct, Obama was going to have more flexibility after the election.

Trump did not say anything like this. Leader talk. Is that a concern for you?

Only in this political climate could O's not seem worse.

Leaders talk, Obama was truly selling out the American people.

You can see the difference.

How do you know what was discussed. Only Trump, Putin and the interpreter were in on the conversation. They could have been discussing coming to your home tonight, in one hour, to beat the he'll out of you and sodomise your broken body, for all you know. Can you prove otherwise?

No.

No one in the US knows. Trump only says it lasted 15 min., And was about, get this, adoption!

15 min? He is a senile old fool, and is making our country look like a gaggle of idiots.

Thanks for the objective post.

Trump IS president. HE can and will have all sorts of discussions with all sorts of leaders.

Should he clear what leader he talks to with you?

A lot of folks in this country do not need anyone's (let alone Trump's) help to make "our country look like a gaggle of idiots."

Why was it our business what Obama said, then, under a hot mic? It's none of our business if our leaders make shady deals, as long as we don't hear it?

Obama was saying he has to act one way to get elected and then after he wins he will have more flexibility. Dishonest-but it is OK cause he is a liberal?


Trump (a world leader) had a meeting with Putin (another world leader).

No it isn't! He never said that!

Obama said "I'll have more flexibility after the election".......PERIOD! Nothing less and nothing more!

Ok, how is Obama's statement worse than Trump giving away Israeli top secrets to Russians in a meeting in the white house where all reporters were banned except the Russion reporters?

Obama was stating a very common sense fact. No one knows what Trump gave away to Putin, who I remind you is a hightly trained KGB spy, who is an expert on leading people into a false sense of security so they let top secrets slide out of their (senile) mouths.

Give me a break. No logical comparason. Go to bed, you are drunk.

Do you think all the highly secret meetings the pres has are "on record". ]

I should be able to get the transcript from Obama being more flexible then. Oh I would love to get the transcripts from some of the historic points in history.

Again with the objective well thought out posts.

He is the pres, he will and can have conversations.

Either you trust the pres or you don't. I think you made your decision.

Hell yeah!

Do you and I have access to those records? Nope. You can bet your ass that the President's National Security Advisor does! But not this time! Nobody knows what they talked about for around an hour, but Putin and his translator.

For all we know they were talking about the Pee Pee tapes, after Trump assured Putin his "adoption" problem has been solved.
