I’ve already written about the “meeting” Trump and Putin had at the G20 Summit. I’ve already discussed how it was a nothing-burger and made to seem like a mountain when it’s merely a molehill. Well, part of the reason it’s made to seem like a mountain is because the MSM (particularly CNN) has called this talk that the two presidents had a “secret meeting.”
Trump even called out the fake news media by tweeting: “Fake News story of secret dinner with Putin is ‘sick’. All G20 leaders, and spouses, were invited by the Chancellor of Germany. Press knew!” And: “The Fake News is becoming more and more dishonest! Even a dinner arranged for top 20 leaders in Germany is made to look sinister!”
CNN’s Chris Cillizza wrote an analysis piece challenging the president’s “fake news” accusations, saying: “No media outlet reported anything about a ‘secret dinner’… No one is making the dinner look ‘sinister’. And, no one is suggesting the media was unaware that the dinner was taking place.” Later on Twitter, he said: “Again, NO ONE is saying the meeting was private or secret. NO ONE.”
However, I can attest to the contrary. I remember having gotten a Fox News alert on my iPhone saying that Trump and Putin had held a secret meeting. And even Cillizza’s own employer, CNN, had said multiple times that the dinner and meeting were “secret”.
Brooke Baldwin, host of CNN Newsroom, “twice referred to the meeting as a ‘secret sitdown’ between Trump and Putin – and even at one point asked, “Why didn’t we (the media) know about this?”, according to Breitbart.
She also said that “These two presidents, Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, did not disclose a second meeting until now.” Yeah, you usually don’t have to disclose a random chat you have with a foreign leader, Brooke.
But she’s not the only person that contradicts Cillizza’s claim that no one called the meeting “secret”. Kate Bolduan, host of State of America, called it a “secret and second sitdown between the president and Russian president Vladimir Putin. Why wasn’t the meeting revealed? What was discussed? And who knows what was said?” And according to Breitbart, “Bolduan described the meeting a second time live on CNN as ‘secret’”.
It’s not just CNN anchors that contradict Cillizza’s claim that no one called it a “secret” meeting. Washington Post’s Aaron Blake tweeted: “Why did Trump meet secretly with Putin? Here are 3 theories.” And then proceeds to link the story he wrote.
Salon’s Matthew Rozsa also calls the meeting “secret” in his article titled: “Donald Trump defends his second, secret meeting with Vladimir Putin.”
And the Financial Times, in their “Daily Briefing”, referred to the meeting as “secret”.
Point is that EVERYONE WAS CALLING IT A SECRET MEETING! Everyone wanted this to be a story on how Trump and Putin are possibly plotting something behind the scenes and the media is left in the dark. They want people to read their headlines and think “wow, Trump and Putin had a secret meeting? That MUST mean there was collusion in the election and that Trump cheated to get elected.”
But just as I figured, this wound up being another nothing-burger. And I’ll make a prediction: EVERYTHING ON THIS MATTER WILL WIND UP AS BEING A NOTHING-BURGER! Granted, that’s an easy prediction to make, knowing what I know about the Left and their tactics and also knowing the very nature of the reason this matter even exists.
I’ve said multiple times that the only reason this matter even exists is because the Left can’t get over the fact that they were utterly REJECTED this last election, so they came up with an excuse that will lead them to nowhere.
But the focus of this article isn’t the “collusion” narrative the Left drives. Overall, it’s about the fake news that the MSM ALWAYS delivers. Every single news organization out there said that the meeting between the presidents was “secret” and that they were “unaware of it”. All it turned out to be is a one-hour chat between the two world leaders, likely to fraternize and strengthen the relationships between the countries. But the MSM treats it as though the meeting was held behind closed doors. And that the media is like Kay at the end of The Godfather, seeing “Don” Donald Trump about to do business with Putin behind closed doors.
The reality of the situation is that the two world leaders met in public and talked in public. Chris Cillizza says that no one said it was secret, but everyone around him in the media world was calling it that precisely.
I just love it when the Fake News media gets called out for what they are. Both when one particular person lies about what the media is saying and when whole networks are found to be lying to the people.
And the thing about constantly lying to your audience is that, eventually, there will be slip-ups. You’ll say something that horrendously and untimely contradicts either what you said previously, or what everyone else around you (who are also lying) is saying. And they constantly lie because they are wicked. They lie to get where they want to go and get what they want. They lie to gain power. They lie to destroy everyone who isn’t like them and doesn’t think like them.
They lie because, if they showed their true colors, no one would like them. That’s one of the reasons millennials love socialism. They’ve been told lies about it. That it’s wonderful and everyone is equal and no one has too much or too little and the government helps everyone. All of that is a LIE. Because if they told people what socialism is truly about, no one in their right mind (that isn’t in the government) would want it.

One common theme in a few of my latest articles is that anything a Trump ever does is considered a crime, suspicious or, in general, wrong, in the Left’s mind. Trump Jr. meeting with the Russian lawyer has been considered part of the “collusion” narrative, even though it was a complete nothing-burger. The president meeting with French president Macron and his wife and saying something nice to her is considered sexist. And now, Trump talking with Putin at a G20 Summit dinner means that there was collusion.
ANYTHING TRUMP EVER DOES OR SAYS IS WRONG IN THEIR EYES! He could literally tell someone “Nice weather we’re having”, and the Left would slam Trump for being a climate-denier.
Trump talking with Putin (through a translator, of course) at a dinner means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! But, of course, it means everything to the Left. On CNN, Sen. Chris Coons said that Trump’s reliance on Putin’s translator was “a basic failure in terms of national security protocol.” And that Trump “needed to know, from an American perspective, what was being said.”, according to CNS news.
Sure, if you’re discussing world politics or business deals, you need your own translator, in whom you can trust. But not if you’re discussing, say, the weather. There WAS a translator there, he was just Putin’s translator. Obviously, that translator knew English, otherwise he WOULDN’T BE A TRANSLATOR! So if Trump wanted to have a nice, friendly chat with Putin that had nothing to do with politics, he DIDN’T NEED HIS OWN TRANSLATOR! To say that it’s “a basic failure in terms of national security protocol” is going off of the assumption that they were discussing politics or business, or something along those lines.
So wouldn’t the fact that Trump didn’t have his own translator mean that what they were discussing wasn’t politics or business? Trump isn’t the moron the Left makes him out to be. HE BEAT THEM, AFTER ALL! He was smart enough to beat the Left at every turn during the election, and up to this point. So he knows that, if he was discussing politics or business with Putin, that he would need his own translator with him. And that whole, “Trump needed to know… what was said” statement is ridiculous. He knew what was said. THEY HAD A TRANSLATOR THERE!
Sen. Coons then noted that no one knows what the two men talked about. “That’s exactly the point”, he said. “He was publicly seen by our allies, by critical heads of state with whom they’re trying to sustain our alliances, to snub them and take the time to invest a great deal of individual one-on-one time with Putin, relying on his translator.” Is it wrong to try to make friends with a country that isn’t really a U.S. ally? To the Left, it is. Well, at least now. It used to be that Russia was the Left’s best friend. But now, they are stabbing them in the back by blaming them of collusion against Hillary.
During that summit, there was plenty of time for Trump to speak with America’s allies. He DID speak with them. But now he’s trying to at least act friendly with Putin and the Left thinks they’re planning their “next election heist”. He didn’t snub anyone at the summit by speaking with Russia. In fact, isn’t it considered being a good leader to TRY TO STRENGTHEN RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHER COUNTRIES? If Trump were to make the U.S.-Russia relationship stronger, why is that a bad thing? Because that’s not what the Left wants.
They don’t want the U.S. to be friends with Russia. They want the U.S. to not be the world’s leader and let Russia take over that role. That’s what Obama was trying to do during his 8 years! He didn’t want America to be the world’s leader. He wanted to weaken America and drop its standing in the world. He was successful, to an extent, in both. Now, Trump is doing everything he can to undo what Obama did and is doing his best to make the world’s second strongest nation our ally while letting the world know that America is always will be the world’s leader. (At least for as long as it is run by good people and not liberals.)
The Left thinks Trump is “too close and too friendly with Putin”. To them, that means that there is inarguable proof that there was collusion. To me, it means that Trump is being a good LEADER and doing one of the jobs he was elected to do.
Like I said: everything Trump does or says is either criminal, suspicious, or flat-out wrong in the eyes of the Left. But all of that is derived from the false narrative that Trump colluded with Russia during the election. Every single one of us logical people knows that there’s absolutely nothing there and it’s just one massive excuse for the Left as to why they were beaten.
They label Trump a cheater, but have zero evidence to support their claim. This will wind up as being a nothing-burger as much as everything else relating to this subject has been. EVERYTHING the Left brings up on this issue will wind up as being a nothing-burger. But like I’ve said in the past: that doesn’t matter. They’ll always run this narrative, no matter the fact that there will never be any actual evidence of collusion.
They’ll always run this story, not to prove that it’s true, but to tell future voters that Trump is a cheater, a bad guy and that future voters should vote for them because they’re not cheaters and bad guys (even though we offer plenty of evidence to the contrary on this website alone). It’s about destroying Trump’s character and reputation. It’s, much like nearly everything else relating to the Left, about DECEPTION.
