You’d think that it would be a memorable moment for a presidential candidate when one of his foreign policy advisers offered to set up a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. You’d think that memory might be kept fresh when Russian election interference turned into a major story and a serious problem for your presidency. But not Donald Trump:
Just last week, Donald Trump claimed to have “one of the great memories of all time.” Mysteriously enough, this week that great memory isn’t up to the task of remembering an offer of a Putin meeting. Or maybe it’s that that type of offer was so run-of-the-mill that Trump can’t remember this specific occasion? Or … crazy thought here: maybe he’s lying.
