Did President Donald J. Trump ban American media from his meeting with Russian officials last week because he knew he would be providing them with classified information?
Russia state media Tass was allowed in Trump’s Oval Office meeting with Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Other than accumulating what I suspect is even more evidence of an American president betraying his country, Tass wasn’t going to turn him in to the American public, or Congress.
Clear thought leads to this observation. Trump is a media whore, he loves attention. Turing away attention — the American media in this instance — is contrary to his narcissistic instincts, but turn them away he did. No doubt he (and they) had concrete reasons for doing so.
One last observation. Sergei Lavrov comes as close to matching Trump’s color as anyone on the planet.
