I'm more partial to Rudy Colludiani.

Primary source:
https://www.wsmv.com/news/news-talks-​o​ne-on-one-with-secretary-of-state-mike​/article_bba02bde-ec8a-11e9-9632-23457​ce242a4.html

Seems like Pompeo was surprised to get a real journalistic question from a local Nashville affiliate.

Clearly the words and actions of completely innocent people with nothing to hide.
 
2019-10-12 12:35:46 PM  
Thinking about it after the fact - a better follow-up question would have been "So, if you met with Mr. Giuliani in Warsaw it was on your personal time and not part of official DoS business?"

That would have been good.

Does he know how reporters work?  I don't think he does.
 
2019-10-12 01:02:27 PM  
Why do these criminals even bother accepting an interview from unbiased sources? They know what questions are coming then act shocked when confronted with normal questions we should be asking
 
2019-10-12 02:00:26 PM  
"Again, you've got your facts wrong," he said.

Won't deny anything, changes the subject, yet the interviewer has the facts wrong. Sure.

"It sounds like you're working at least in part for the Democratic National Committee."

Yep, you're an asshole.

I'm glad that reporters are now asking tough questions and calling out deflection.  But why weren't they doing this three years ago?

Touchy, touchy.  Why so touchy?

Squirm, you traitor, squirm and squirm again until the bootheel of justice puts an end to all of your shenanigans.

He's so arrogant
 
2019-10-12 04:45:46 PM  
Pompeo watches his dreams of the Presidency get roasted by some local red state affiliate.
 
2019-10-12 04:46:45 PM  
God I hope every one of these farkers is locked up and the keys thrown away. We should keep them in open air prisons built on the Mall of America, so people are allowed to walk by, point and laugh, and maybe throw some rotten fruit at them.

It has come to this?

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness"

I feel no need to quote this thing yet here I am.

It is a continuous disgrace always that this fat piece of bloated shiat has ever had a single penny in its disgusting life, let alone any power.

Pompo and anyone who thinks he is a human are all waste to be disposed of and nothing else at all.
 
2019-10-12 04:48:26 PM  
The pompatus of trump.

"You've got your facts wrong."
OK, this is your moment to correct those facts... what's the truth?  What did she get wrong?  Why didn't he correct her?

Because he hadn't been told what to say and he's not smart enough to have planned for the very obviously expected questions or to think fast on his feet.

Real genius mobsters we got running this planet right now.
 
2019-10-12 04:49:19 PM  
He does realize the
dNC is not Congress right?

Demetrius: I'm more partial to Rudy Colludiani.


Yeah, that's a clearer play on his last name. I prefer Colludy Rudy, as the adjective-name form is clear, flows better, and pokes fun at Trump's use of the same scheme.  However, I also see the advantage in the name coming first.
 
2019-10-12 04:51:58 PM  
Translation:

Yes, I met Rudy in Warsaw.

If there was any lingering doubt that Pompeii is not a full-bore Trump-grade asshole with Pence-grade religious delusion, the profile on him in the 8/26 issue of the New Yorker will swiftly disabuse you of it.
 
2019-10-12 04:53:35 PM  
Just ask Rudy. He probably has pictures (with weird little American flags in sugar bowl and shiat) to commemorate the event. He'd love to talk about it.
 
2019-10-12 04:57:54 PM  
Rudy tells CNN he's unaware he's under investigation for Ukraine involvement.


Book an airline ticket to a foreign country, Rudy. You'll be made aware.

Remember the goat tied to a stake in Jurassic Park? Like that, but fatter. Much, much fatter.

Aquapope: "You've got your facts wrong."
OK, this is your moment to correct those facts

... what's the truth?  What did she get wrong?  Why didn't he correct her?

Because he hadn't been told what to say and he's not smart enough to have planned for the very obviously expected questions or to think fast on his feet.

Real genius mobsters we got running this planet right now.


"I wouldn't say we met... we were both in Warsaw, and we were both in the same room of the same hotel at the same time, but...  I mean, I'd already met Rudy years before, so you can't really say we met in Warsaw..."

Now that we've established that they met each other in Warsaw, was this during the time Barr was in Europe?  Was he there too?
 
2019-10-12 05:14:27 PM  
Geez Mike, all you have to do is say "no." Simple.
Unless you did meet him and you know it'll be very, very easy to prove...
 
2019-10-12 05:17:07 PM  
I'm surprised that Pompeo is apparently visiting the United States.

mofa: I'm surprised that Pompeo is apparently visiting the United States.


He wants to take a good look at the property and assess what can be sold and what needs to be destroyed before the new owners show up.

Russians have indicated that they would suspend loans into to the US if Pompeo doesn't do something about the corruption there.

mrshowrules: mofa: I'm surprised that Pompeo is apparently visiting the United States.

I assume by that he means more corruption? Or at least more corruption that you don't get caught at this time?

I imagine all interviews with Rudy Guillani are extremely awkward, because of all the shouting and spittle, but I may have deliberately misread the headline and ignored the article just to make that observation.
 
2019-10-12 05:46:17 PM  
It truly is stupid Watergate all the way down.

Demetrius: I'm more partial to Rudy Colludiani.


Has anyone suggested Rudy McColludyface yet?

Someone has to have suggested that by now.
 
2019-10-12 06:53:52 PM  
Given how easy and final simply saying "no" would be, they definitely met up.
 
2019-10-12 07:20:23 PM  

suebhoney: It truly is stupid Watergate all the way down.


I think at this point, we're insulting Watergate by comparing the two.

No one has beaten, drugged, and kidnapped the Attorney General's wife yet, so maybe we have that to look forward to.

Did that shiathead actually imply Obama was funding ISIS?

Seriously?  Is that what he said he "had to undo" in Warsaw?

Well, fark this guy.  What a shiathead.

Seriously, has there ever been and administration that was such a bunch of whiny titty babies crying about the previous administration all the time?  farking Obama was infuriating in the way he'd avoid calling out W for the monumental farkups of his administration.

What a bunch of classless, ethic-free whiny bullies.

God DAMN I'll be happy when Pompeo and the rest are thrown out on their backsides.

Yep, Mr. Super Christian has no problem with bearing false witness but can't answer a simple yes or no question.

Circusdog320: Does he know how reporters work?  I don't think he does.


He knows how they work just fine.  He was expecting some softball questions from a local tv reporter.  Instead he got someone who actually asked the questions that people wanted answers to, and even more incredibly persisted when he refused to answer.  National so-called reporters should take note, because this is how it's done.

Pompeo?

I have been calling him Pompey all this time. You mean to say he isn't the Great Pompey, who riped aside the curtain of the Holy of Holies in the Temple of Jerusalem in the Great Abomination?

He found nothing. An empty room where the High Priest went once a year to talk to God.

Next you will tell me that General Petraus is not a Roman Generak either, and that Trump is not Nero Dedidivus, the Beast 666.

Oh, well. I probably shouldn't take Philip K. Dick conspiracy theories so literally. Maybe this isn't the First Century and Washington is not Rome, the City of the Seven Hills.

Funny. I could swear he looks a lot like Pompey and acts a lot like a Roman Republican General hell-bent for loot and leather.

Will the real Pompey please shut the fark up?

And put some clothes on, you're NSFW!

 
2019-10-13 10:21:57 PM  
Sorry about the size. I tried to find ressembling photos but the web nowadays makes it very hard to grab things and I don't have the skillz or the patience for Photoshop.
 
2019-10-13 10:23:34 PM  
Pompey's nose looks a bit bent out of shape. But then, I imagine any Trumper is a bit bent nowadays.
