New York Times changes story admitting they misquoted Clinton saying ‘Russians’ were ‘grooming’ Tulsi Gabbard

Published

President Donald Trump has attacked former Sec. Hillary Clinton over the weekend for trying to blame Russia for everything. In fact, The New York Times story that quoted an interview with Clinton mistakenly alleged the quote. It was incorrect and The Times has fixed their error.

Clinton never said Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) was being “groomed” by the “Russians,” according to an update from The Times.

Other sites like NBC News and The Daily Beast correctly quoted the story.

The original piece quoted Clinton saying Russians have “got their eye on somebody who’s currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate.”

In fact, the actual thing Clinton said was that Republicans were grooming Gabbard to be a third-party spoiler candidate in 2020.

“Hillary Clinton waded into the Democratic primary on Friday by suggesting that Russia was backing Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii for president and that Republicans were ‘grooming’ her as a third-party candidate,” The Times said in a corrected report (emphasis from RawStory).

“It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me,” Gabbard tweeted about Clinton. “Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.”

In an interview with Fox News Monday, Trump used the inaccurate quote to justify diminishing the accusations of his links to Russia.

The book, A Very Stable Genius: Donald J. Trump’s Testing of America, was written by Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post journalists Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig.

The book will be officially released on Tuesday, but it appears that Conway received an advance copy.

"So I’m reading a certain book. And ... oh my. I’ve never read anything like it. I’m almost at a loss for words. Almost," Conway tweeted. "Let’s just say, someone is not A Very Stable Genius."

Trump ripped for ‘mops and buckets’ plan for climate change: ‘Imagine being this proud of being this ignorant’

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Saturday laid out his plan for New Yorkers to use "mops and buckets" to deal with rising sea levels from climate change.

In the president's mind, simply cleaning up after devastating floods is a superior option than stopping climate change or building a seal wall to protect New York.

"A massive 200 Billion Dollar Sea Wall, built around New York to protect it from rare storms, is a costly, foolish & environmentally unfriendly idea that, when needed, probably won’t work anyway. It will also look terrible," Trump claimed. "Sorry, you’ll just have to get your mops & buckets ready!"
