More #FakeNews from the National Laughingstock: Washington Post Dresses Up Old Silly Joke as Allegation that Trump Is Being Paid By Russia

Oh my.

Here's what the National Laughinstock claimed happened:

“There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016 exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia.

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy’s assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy.

Sworn to secrecy? Oh, my.

Compare that to the actual transcript:


Democracy Dies in Darkness Madness.

Update: Oh.
