[Ed. – Liberal minds, constantly working…]
On Saturday, the left-wing Guardian published an interview with Judge Roy Moore which included some questions about Russian President Vladimir Putin. At the end of the interview, Moore is asked what he would say to Putin, prompting the judge to say, “hello, how are you” in Russian. Naturally liberals and never-Trumpers freaked out on Twitter and began pushing the false idea that Moore is either a Russian or a Russian agent.
This was a fairly familiar theme, but as usual, was taken way out of context. Additionally, detractors conveniently left out Moore’s statement in the Guardian interview. We emphasized the key phrase below:
“I studied Russian at one time,” he says, laughing, “at the United States military academy at West Point. And that’s about all I could say to him.”
Hardly “fluent” Russian, but that’s what detractors are spreading.
OK, now this is getting weird.
Roy Moore speaks fluent Russian? https://t.co/j6VvyoeRiq
