It really is incredible. It's shocking how many lies they have been caught telling and some people still believe them and their 'fake news' rhetoric. It's an astonishing reflection on modern American society that these gangsters haven't been run out of town long before now.
I have no doubt it is deliberate rather than inappropriate. The people who setup this meeting (which the White House denied all along until the nyt told them they had proof) are long time trump (senior) associates, there's no way he didn't know about this meeting. And I suspect this is the tip of the iceberg. The same day he started tweeting about 30,000 emails.
