After an abysmal performance in Helsinki, Trump, with vorpal blade, tries to cut the not

imageshelsinki

" President Donald Trump sought to walk back his remarks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday by correcting a single word uttered during the 46-minute joint appearance in Helsinki.When Trump said he couldn't see any reason why Russia 'would' have been involved in the U.S. presidential election what he meant to say was 'wouldn't.'"   [usatoday.com]

 

In the wake of a firestorm Trump makes a redaction:

The little word 'would' should have been a contraction.

The Right now can sell

That all's good and well

And the same platitudes take the place of strong action.

  • He meant what he first said, and he couldn't say nyet while in the presence of his overlord.

  • Vorpal? I can trust you to get me to the dictionary!

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    Granted, my dictionary's getting on in years, but "vorpal" isn't there. Please advise.

  • As Gilda Radner would have said, "Never mind." I found it -- under poetry instead of dictionary. Very appropriate.

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    As usual, Google does the job, and AW was spot on in quoting Jabberwocky, which is all in which this administration engages.

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    Gilda and Gene...I miss them both.

  • You got it, Jack. We've gone down the rabbit hole.
