Trump blames RICK PERRY for the Ukraine phone call!

This is a new report from Axios – they’re saying that el Presidente Trumpo appears to be tossing Rick Perry under the bus on the Ukraine phone call.

President Trump told House Republicans that he made his now infamous phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at the urging of Energy Secretary Rick Perry — a call Trump claimed he didn’t even want to make.

Hmmmm. According to my Twitter sources, everything is going as planned, and Trump is going to pull the trigger and Hillary, AOC and Obama are going to get arrested any day now. So why does he have to blame Rick Perry for the “perfect” Ukraine call that was part of his plan and is going really really well for him?

More:

Trump made these comments during a conference call with House members on Friday, according to 3 sources on the call.

    • Per the sources, Trump rattled off the same things he has been saying publicly — that his call with Zelensky was “perfect”and he did nothing wrong.
    • But he then threw Perry into the mix and said something to the effect of: “Not a lot of people know this but, I didn’t even want to make the call. The only reason I made the call was because Rick asked me to. Something about an LNG [liquified natural gas] plant,” one source said, recalling the president’s comments. 2 other sources confirmed the first source’s recollection.


AND, he told them, reportedly, that more is going to come out about this soon.

Another source on the call said Trump added that “more of this will be coming out in the next few days” — referring to Perry.

So, it’s Rick Perry’s fault, ALSO, if he hadn’t done it, he would have been doing something wrong, according to a tweet he just sent out quoting Mark Levin:

Sooo, then Rick Perry is the HERO of the story who got Trump to do a good thing perfectly, that also set up the Democrats to impeach him, which is all part of the plan, and Obama and Hillary and AOC will be imprisoned shortly. Makes perfect sense.

BUT, that’s all according to Axios. Maybe this is a White House plan to flush out a leaker. OR they’re just LYING. We will know very soon if Trump comes out and tries to toss the Perrynator under the bus. Or praise him. Either way.

That’s about it for Saturday. Y’all have an open thread. Here’s some comment fodder:
