Maybe the dog ate Drumps homework too?

Would It or Wouldn’t It Be Russia: Trump Goes Double Negative

WASHINGTON — It was really just a mix-up, he insisted. Like confusing “affect” and “effect,” but for unprecedented global cyberaggression.

“I thought I made myself very clear,” President Trump said, alternately riffing and note-reading on Tuesday from his chair in the White House Cabinet Room. “I came back, and I said, ‘What is going on? What’s the big deal?’”

Well.

Mr. Trump had just returned from Finland, where he sided against his own intelligence agencies’ conclusions about Russian interference in the 2016 election during a meeting with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia. “I have President Putin; he just said it’s not Russia,” Mr. Trump had said on Monday. “I don’t see any reason why it would be.”

And by that, Mr. Trump said on Tuesday, more than 24 hours later, he meant the exact opposite. “The sentence should have been, ‘I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia,’” Mr. Trump said. “Sort of a double negative.”

He looked up at the cameras, then back down. “So,” he concluded, “you can put that in. And I think that probably clarifies things pretty good by itself.”

It did not. And in an instant, Mr. Trump had joined the pantheon of dubious executive word-parsing and malapropisms, a bipartisan enterprise with decades of entries, if little precise precedent for Tuesday’s excuse-making.

Mr. Trump appeared confident in his powers of persuasion, repeatedly arguing that he thought he had been clear. But as he pledged support for his intelligence officials, the lights in the Cabinet Room went down, darkening his face before the cameras.

“Must be the intelligence agencies,” he said, folding his arms.

“That was strange,” he added. “But that’s O.K.”

Soon, he returned to his notes, with a message in the margin. “THERE WAS NO COLUSION” was scribbled on the page, seemingly missing an “L.”

Trump went on to clarify : "I meant to say Mexico wouldn't be paying for the wall, you wouldn't be getting great healthcare at a fraction of the cost and I wouldn't be eliminating the debt, protecting Social Security or running unarmed into a school to tackle a shooter with an AR-15."

SEN. OBAMA: What I was suggesting — you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith, and you’re absolutely right that that has not come …
MR. STEPHANOPOULOS (interrupting): Your Christian faith.

SEN. OBAMA: My Christian faith — well, what I’m saying is …

MR. STEPHANOPOULOS (interrupting): Connections, right.

SEN. OBAMA: … that he hasn’t suggested that I’m a Muslim, and I think that his campaign upper echelons haven’t either. What I think is fair to say is that coming out of the Republican camp, there have been efforts to suggest that perhaps I’m not what who I say I am when it comes to my faith, something which I find deeply offensive, and that has been going on for a pretty long time.

Is Stephanopoulos a journalist and since when don't interviewers correct someone when they obviously misspoke?
