United States security services have expressed their dismay that US President Donald Trump sided with the Russian President Vladimir Putin with regard to Russian meddling in the Presidential election, saying that Mr Trump can’t see the wouldn’t for the trees.
Despite Trump’s claim that he misspoke, and that he now accepts the intelligence community’s assertion that Russia interfered, more and more people are coming out of the wouldn’twork to criticise him.
Chuck Schumer, who was born in the same neck of the wouldn’ts in New York as the President and is leader of the opposition Democrats in the Senate, said that Trump was expecting a medal for his meeting with Putin but all he deserved was a wouldn’t spoon. ‘It was a classic Hollywouldn’t Moment’, he said.
Others were even more critical, saying the President should be ashamed of his failure to hold Putin accountable for Russia’s activities worldwide. When asked if he thought that the President was weak, one Democrat said, ‘Do bears shit in the wouldn’ts?’
