UPDATE: TRUMP NOW HITS PELOSI! – The president just totally TRUMPED Schumer on Twitter

[UPDATED BELOW]

Wow. President Trump is back to tweeting and sent out a doozy a few minutes ago:

Ok that’s pretty amazing. I can’t wait to see that photo all over the news!

So the reported backstory on that photo is that it took place in 2003:

The picture above was taken in 2003 as Russian President Vladimir Putin, right, enjoys a Krispy Kreme doughnut and coffee with Senator Charles Schumer from New York as Putin visits the first New York gas station of the Russian company Lukoil.

I think Trump’s point should be clear to everyone. Politicians do this sort of stuff all the time – it’s part of the job – and they are absolute hypocrites for trying to make political controversies of their colleagues just because they got elected to higher office.

 
UPDATE: Trump just called Pelosi out too!

What he’s referring to is this article:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Friday that she’s never met with the current Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak.

“Not with this Russian ambassador, no,” Pelosi told POLITICO’s Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer during a Playbook interview, when asked if she’d ever met with the Russian envoy.

But a file photo from Pelosi’s 2010 meeting with Russian President Dmitriy Medvedev shows Kislyak at the table across from Pelosi — then House speaker — and Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.). Medvedev had been in the country for a meeting with President Barack Obama a day earlier and stopped in on Capitol Hill to meet with congressional leaders as well.

Asked to square Pelosi’s comments with the photo of the meeting, a spokesman said that Pelosi had simply meant she never had a solo meeting with Kislyak.

“Of course, that’s what she meant,” said the spokesman, Drew Hammill. “She has never had a private one-on-one with him.”

Of course. LOL!
