Democrats and the liberal media are going bonkers about President Trump’s supposedly “secret” but-in-plain-sight meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin during dinner at the G-20 Summit earlier this month.
Because “how dare they eat and talk!”
Trump, who had originally been sitting with Japanese Akie Abe, got up part way through the meal and walked over to the Russian president, who happened to have been assigned a seat next to his own wife, Melania.
The two then spoke for a few minutes through Putin’s translator, since the translator assigned to Trump spoke only Japanese.
During his Common Sense segment on Wednesday, Fox News host Neil Cavuto went off on the critics for their blatant hypocrisy.
“For the life of me I’m really at a loss on this one,” Cavuto said. “And why is this even an issue. I mean, these guys were not holed up alone at some super-secret location. They were at a group of twenty summit of world leaders in Germany. This was at a dinner for those leaders. All the leaders knew about it. They were all there. Not a one from what I could see wearing a disguise. I mean, look at that table. They talked, they mingled, they moved around. You know, the sort of thing world leaders do at a meeting of … world leaders.”
After explaining the translator issue, the Fox News host then lit into Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal’s criticism of the conversation and his having absolutely no problem with “President Obama’s incredible exchange with then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.”
Cavuto also gave his audience a short but quite relevant history lesson on other leaders who necessarily dealt with Russian leaders, such as dealings with Russia and Khrushchev during the Kennedy Administration.
“[So,] JFK’s brilliant at working a connection while Trump’s a boob,” said Cavuto.
“The media calls this whole thing truth to power?” continued the Fox News host. “Please. Save the sanctimonious outrage for someone who cares. If this was a super-secret pow-wow––newsflash––the whole world was in on it! And every major world leader was playing a part in it, including their spouses. Clever!”
“How dare they eat and talk? Better they just sit and not say a word at all.”
