Ready for another John Kerry Hypocrisy Classic? Let’s start with what President Trump said at a NATO meeting today in regards to Germany purchasing gas and oil from Russia via the Nord Stream 2 pipeline:
“Germany is totally controlled by Russia,” Trump said in a searing critique of Germany’s gas pipeline deal with the country NATO calls its greatest threat to their alliance.
“I think it’s very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia where — we’re supposed to be guarding against Russia and Germany goes out and pays billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia,” Trump said.
And right on cue, here’s Lurch slamming President Trump for daring to criticize Germany for purchasing gas and oil from Russia via the Nord Stream 2 pipeline:
