During press conference Donald Trump lied again about Obama being outsmarted by Vladimir Putin concerning Ukraine invasion.

As you can hear Trump claims that the only reason Russia is no longer allowed to participate in the G7 (Formerly the G8) is that President Obama was embarrassed by him and had him kicked out. 

That, of course, is a lie. In fact it was a decision reached by all leaders of the remaining G7 to kick Putin to the curb. 

And notice how Trump blames Obama for Putin’s illegal invasion of a sovereign nation, but not a word about Putin doing anything wrong. 

Fortunately PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor calls him out for that lie at which time Trump just throws out more lies to cover for his first lie, suggesting that Obama allowed Putin to annex Crimea and did nothing, completely ignoring the sanctions America placed on Russia and the fact it is the reason there is no longer a G8.

Essentially Trump is working as Putin’s advocate here and even used Russian talking points to explain why they captured Crimea. 

I found this to be an amazing exchange that illustrates perfectly why an impeachment investigation needs to move forward as quickly as possible.

    Trump’s Obama envy is getting even worse

    Is it my imagination, or is President Trump’s chronic and debilitating case of Obama envy getting worse?

    One of the things that genuinely seems to matter to Trump is comparing himself — favorably, of course — with his predecessor, no matter how delusional the rationale. Trump gave an illustration at the end of the Group of Seven summit when he insisted to reporters that former president Barack Obama had been “outsmarted” by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    Trump’s full-blown Putin envy was also on display. But the president’s false and absurd rewriting of history seemed intended less to elevate the Russian leader than to diminish Obama. It fit a pattern that goes back years — and may have more to do with Trump’s behavior in office than we realize.

    ……But truth never matters much with Trump, and it matters not at all when he’s attacking Obama.

    Trump blasts the Obama administration’s record of creating jobs and claims to be doing much better. Yet, under Obama, the unemployment rate fell from a high of 10 percent to just 4.7 percent. Under Trump, it has dropped further to 3.7 percent. Which president had the bigger impact?

    Trump blames Obama for being soft on illegal immigration, yet he deports fewer undocumented migrants than Obama did. And when Obama left office, undocumented border crossings were at a multiyear low. The huge increase, driven in part by asylum seekers from Central America, has taken place under Trump.

    Yamiche Alcindor calls trump a lier:
    “He also repeated his incorrect claim that Russia was kicked out of the group because Russia outsmarted former President Barack Obama. He claimed an angry Obama engineered the ouster because of Russia’s 2014 annexation of CRIMEa.” – “… when other countries have said that the reason why Russia was kicked out was very clearly because they annexed CRIMEa? Why do you keep repeating what some people would see as a clear lie?”

    “It was annexed during President Obama’s term.

    If it was annexed during my term, I would say, sorry, folks. It could have been stopped. But President Obama was unable to stop it, and it’s too bad.”
