Perdue's shifting story on Trump expletive faces more scrutiny

Share

Cotton noted President Donald Trump has already agreed to comprise and let the programs continue if other concessions are agreed on. On Sunday, they backtracked and challenged other senators' descriptions of the remarks.

Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, the only Democrat at Thursday's meeting, said Trump had indeed said what he was reported to have said.

Trump has not clarified to aides what he said, but told reporters Sunday night in Florida that comments attributed to him "weren't made".

Graham has neither confirmed nor denied hearing the comments, instead saying he "said [his] piece directly" to the president. Because, if you believe WaPo, that's what Tom Cotton and David Perdue have been doing to spin for Trump. The suggestion was that the President had a different view.

Perdue and Cotton were also in that meeting. "Durbin has said repeatedly", Sen. "I'm confident to my core that that's going to be bleeped, because CBS has higher standards than the president." Sen. Perhaps there was another rationalization in there: he was being derogatory about whole populations, not individuals!

She said the news upset her parents, who once met Vice President Pence and told him they were praying for him. Cotton answered, "Yes." At the same time, Perdue was busy on ABC's "This Week", telling George Stephanopoulos, in even more categorical terms, that Durbin was guilty of a "gross misrepresentation" of Trump's remarks, saying that such "language" was simply not used.

'Multiple sources? There were six of us in the room. Perdue says Durbin and Republican Sen. Perdue brings up a real issue, though it does not point in the direction he claims.

"We want to make it clear that the citizens of Georgia regard David Perdue as a failed politician for his state", said Caroline Stover, organizer of Resist Trump Tuesdays in a press release. Schumer's view of the president's skills aren't quite as high to say the least.

Trump seems to be curious about that question, too. They were caught by surprise when he started tweeting about how the accounts of his language were outright false.

Alerting Republican lawmakers that whether they are loyal to the president or not, they will end up "humiliated", Rubin went further when she took a stab at the senators by saying that "h$3 onorable men would resign after such a remarkable revelation of their crummy character".

"Calling a guy named Dick 'Dicky, ' is that even..."

"Yesterday, Senators Cotton and Perdue "could not recall" what the President said". "They were lying to their constituents, they were lying to the American people".

"It was heartbreaking for them", Love said Sunday. "The president and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel", Graham said.
