Trump’s Putin delusion

Trump's Putin delusion

This happened:

Comey wrote that Trump told him Putin had told him that Russia had the most beautiful hookers in the world.

This is what the addled orange miscreant was saying that Putin "told him:"

"The president brought up the 'Golden Showers thing' and said it really bothered him if wife had any doubt about it. He then explained, as he did at our dinner, that he hadn't stayed overnight in Russia during the Miss Universe trip. ... The president said 'the hookers thing' is nonsense but that Putin had told him 'we have some of the most beautiful hookers in the world.' He did not say when Putin had told him this."

He lied about staying overnight. We know he did. His bodyguard Keith Schiller testified to that.

At the time he told Comey that Putin had "told" him this he had had a phone call with the Russian president but it's unlikely they chatted about hookers on that call. We don't know whether there were *(or are) back channels that they use to communicate. But this probably explains what Trump was talking about which just shows how he lies and brags about everything:
