Trump On Meeting With Papadopoulous: 'I Don't Remember Much About That Meeting'

Suddenly, Trump is playing the geriatric card.
Views:

As he was about to take off on his 12-day trip to Asia Friday, reporters asked Trump what he remembered about a March meeting with his now convicted former foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos and he replied,"I don't remember much about that meeting."

Trump, who often boasted about his intelligence and education told the press after his imbecilic dust up with a Gold Star widow who he made cry said that his version of events was correct because he has, "one of the great memories of all time."

Competing with a lot of outside noise, reporters yelled, "Do you remember talking to Papadopoulos?"

In documents released about the Papadopoulos' plea deal, we now have learned that Papadopoulos proposed coordinating a meeting between Putin and Trump at that now infamous March meeting and it was AG Jeff Sessions who was against it.

Trump replied, "I don't remember much about that meeting. It was a very unimportant meeting - took place a long time -- don't remember much about it."

Did he just play the geriatric card?

Not to mention back in 2015, Trump told NBC News , Trump said , "I have the world’s greatest memory. It’s one thing everyone agrees on."

Another reporter asked if the campaign ever "talked to anybody from Russia, do you stand by that (garbled) -- "

Trump said, "All I can tell you is this. There was no collusion, there was no nothing. It's a disgrace frankly that they continue."

What's a disgrace, sir, is that you conveniently have forgotten all about George Papadopoulos.
