WATCH: Trump rebukes reporter for being RUDE

Today in the White House, Trump was answering a question about his conversation with Putin today regarding the Mueller investigation, when he stopped to rebuke a reporter for being rude and interrupting him:

When I first saw this I totally LOL’d.



Not because Trump rebuked her per se, but because after he rebuked her he only said one more ‘wrap-up’ sentence and he was done.

So it wasn’t like her interruption was egregious or anything, but I guess Trump had a small bee in his MAGA bonnet.

Trump did say that Putin doesn’t really want to get involved with Venezuela, that he only wants something positive to happen for the country:

I find that surprising, especially after Pompeo just accused Russia of being the only reason Maduro stayed in the country the other day after the coup had begun. Pompeo said Maduro was headed for his airplane, but the Russians convinced him to stay.

I don’t know if this is Trump just being nice to Putin like he’s done with Kim Jong Un in the past or if he’s really this naive. I’m not saying Trump is wrong here either, but I find it hard to believe that Putin doesn’t want to get involved with Venezuela when they already seem involved keeping the communist dictator in power.

  1. I hope sooner than later, that Trump will realize that Chiner (his word) and Russia aren’t our friends.

    1. @muckjumper I don’t think he’s going to call them out publicly, especially if he’s trying to get stuff out of them. It’s a fine line but I agree with you. I hope he knows they’re not working in our best interest.

  2. What exactly should Trump have said to Putin about the election? As if Putin would tell him the truth. The better question is what are WE doing to make sure Putin and the Russians are NOT involved in the election?

  3. Get Putin on public record – then if/when he goes back on his word he takes the blame. No one else. Plan that he will go back – trust but verify. Still the best advice when dealing with reprobates and Democrats.

  4. Russia doesn’t have the resources to be involved anywhere.

    NK just left empty handed just a week ago after meeting Putin in Vladivostok. All you have to do is visit Russia today to know there is no mood to get involved in anything other than cleaning up their own country.

    Give money to other countries to support them – you will have riots in the streets of every city in Russia.

    Kim and NK need to decide after visiting the US in Singapore and Putin in Vladivostok, which way does he want to take his own country.

    Getting Kim to Singapore (an Asian dazzler) was victory enough for Trump. Seeing what the Russians can do for him in Vladivostok is a total downer – including getting Putin to see in Russia Far East what a wreck his vast country has become. Moscow and St Petersburg may glitter floating on foreign cash , but the rest of Russia is still all slums and outdoor toilets.

  5. I do t know, I suppose everyone wants him to call Putin what he really is. Not goi g to get anywhere that way…

  6. I suppose even Trump has to use diplo-speak. Although I think the traditional avoidance of answering directly is probably still better than effectively defending Putin to the public.

  7. I am starting to be afraid Trump’s economy will peak too soon… how much better can it get than this? Which means we have nowhere to go but down… I hope that’s false… but wow, 3.6% has it ever ever been lower than that?

    And what would it mean if it hovers or dips or worse?

    Am I worrying about nothing?

    1. I fear that the progressives and their major backers will sabotage the economy somehow before the election thru manipulation of the stock market or something.

      1. Democrats have been so busy trying to take Trump down, they haven’t been able to screw up the economy. Animal spirits of the marketplace know they are well served with Trump sassing around.

        Don’t forget it is government hand-out policies that over-heat the economy. Public pensions, school loans and liar loan housing mandates.

        You put “free” money on the table and everyone goes crazy. You put earned money on the table, and people take care of it as their own.

    2. There is some validity to your concern but I think it will plateau a bit but the trickle down effect will slowly be felt by more and more people.
      What needs to happen most is the midwest union workers need to see they don’t need to vote Democrat and Trump can keep WI, MI and PA.

    3. See if you can get over your fears – bad karma. Economies always go up and down. Take a course. Learn to roll with the punches. Don’t be such a downer.

      Is earned money on the table, or is “free” money on the table. Two very different beasts. Worry when the government starts throwing money around. Feel confident when it is earned money driving the economy. Which one do you think is on the table right now?

  8. If Trump did say what a lot of folks want him to say, it’s clear that his political enemies will hammer him for his candor. That’s as obvious as obvious gets.

    So yeah, he uses other words in public. After 2 1/2 years it’s pretty clear that those “other words in public” do not equate to him being naive, bumbling, nor out of his depth.

    At all.

    In fact, when it comes to international, head-of-state politics, he’s about the most “in his depth” person we’ve ever had in the modern era. Name one person more comfortable operating at that level. Henry Kissinger is about the only other one I can think of since Eisenhower who could deal with foreign heads of state like a boss.

    People on the right need to get this about Trump, and stop with the, “Why is he ‘cozying up’ to so-and-so,” naive, hand-wringing.

    Does it mean he’s infallable? Not in the least. But the evidence that he can handle the job better than anyone we’ve seen in a long time is clear. Even so, expecting a tough nut like North Korea, or the Middle East, or Turkey, to crack “soon” is unrealistic, no matter who is in office. People need to stop heeding the urgency impetus of social media, and get back to *real* time.

  9. Thank G-d Bolton is there. Putin is absolutely involved in Venezuela and Nicaragua. Trump has no reason to provide cover for Russians.

  10. Get Putin on public record – then if/when he goes back on his word he takes the blame. No one else. Plan that he will go back – trust but verify. Still the best advice when dealing with reprobates and Democrats.

  12. Did this reporter ask Obama the same question??? It was his term that this during. I’m curious……….

    1. They can’t really ask Obama that question because Obama did the same if not worse. We know he meddled in Egyptian and Israeli elections.
