Democrats and virtually all of the fake news media consider Barack Obama a President whose legacy is worthy of putting his face on Mount Rushmore.
The American people are about to reject that notion.
And now Barack Obama fumed with anger after Donald Trump revealed this massive humiliation.
One of the enduring fake news media myths of the Trump era is that President Trump takes it easy on Russia and Vladimir Putin because they colluded during the 2016 election.
In an interview with Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen, President Trump revealed just how big a lie that was.
For the first time, President Trump confirmed that he ordered a cyber attack at the Internet Research Agency – the firm Robert Mueller accused of buying Facebook ads to “meddle” in the 2016 election on behalf of the Russian government – to take them offline just before the 2018 midterms.
Theissen wrote that “During an Oval Office interview with me this week, President Trump acknowledged for the first time that, in 2018, he authorized a covert cyberattack against Russia’s Internet Research Agency, the St. Petersburg-based troll farm that spearheaded Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and was doing the same in the 2018 midterm elections.”
President Trump compared this to how Obama dealt with Putin during the 2016 election when all Obama did was tell Putin to “cut it out.”
Thiessen wrote that Trump told him that Obama“knew before the election that Russia was playing around. Or, he was told. Whether or not it was so or not, who knows? And he said nothing. And the reason he said nothing was that he didn’t want to touch it because he thought [Hillary Clinton] was winning because he read phony polls. So, he thought she was going to win. And we had the silent majority that said, ‘No, we like Trump.’ ”
President Trump then ticked off a number of actions his administration took to combat Russia that proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he stood up to Putin’s global ambitions.
“I sent [Ukraine] a massive number of antitank busters. I sent them military equipment and Obama sent them nothing. That’s against Russia,” he says. “I made us the number one oil-producing country in the world. It wasn’t even close. I made us number one — that’s bad for Russia,” President Trump told Thiessen.
The real scandal of the last four years was Obama letting Putin get away with everything – Putin took Crimea from Ukraine and meddled in the 2016 elections – with little to no consequences whereas President Trump’s administration took tough measures to hold Russia to account and in the end the fake news media still rewrote history to falsely claim Trump was Putin’s puppet.
