Skip to comments.‘They tricked us!’: White House ‘furious’ Russia posted Trump photos on official government accounts
Posted on 05/11/2017 1:05:38 PM PDT by VaeVictis
On Wednesday, the Russian government posted photos of President Donald Trump meeting with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak on its official Twitter accounts.
This drew immediate criticism because the White House seemed to have allowed Russian state media to take photos of the meeting while excluding any American media outlets from doing the same.
Now a White House official tells CNNs Jim Acosta that the Trump administration is furious at the Russians for posting the photos, as they claimed they were not told beforehand that any pictures would be posted on state-run social media accounts.
They tricked us, one official told Acosta about the Russians. They lie.
The official also said that the White House did not anticipate that the photos would ever be used by the Russians for propaganda purposes. That said, the official also slammed critics who called the meeting with Kislyak inappropriate because it came just one day after Trump fired the person overseeing the FBIs investigation into Russias interference with the 2016 election.
It is ridiculous to say that an ambassador cant meet with the president, the official said.

The thing is, the media could just be pulling stunts like so many have been caught in the last year for fake hate crimes. However, with the anonymous person's words they don't have to face scrutiny or honesty.... and that is a lack of evidence that any real journalist or historian should find appalling.
(more FAKE NEWS like the claim Rosenstein threatening to quit)
This is Raw Story. Never the truth. Never.
LOL- I was watching a talking-head on TV yesterday complaining that they press was not allowed in but the RUSSIAN press did have photographs, but they were not going to show (because it wasn’t fair and Trump was a meany or something)
Russian media photographers were there as well as American media photographers. Story is a hoax.
The Raw Story (also stylized as RawStory) is an American left-wing online news organization founded in 2004 by John Byrne. It covers current national and international political and economic news and publishes its own editorials and investigative pieces.
The Raw Story describes itself as progressive, bringing attention to stories that it sees as downplayed or ignored by other media outlets.
Total Bull Cheese.
Trump trolled the media in this meeting. He DENIED the US press from covering it while allowing the Ruskies to be there.
Trump himself even posed with Dr. Henry Kissinger and other Russian officials knowing the Russians would post the pictures so as to piss off the MSM.
And it worked. So now Raw Story is pulling this garbage out of its ass? Typical.
Oh indeed, but it was just featured on the Clinton News Network too. All of em are idiots incapable of even the most simplest of journalistic research.
I will guarantee you there was also an official White House photographer taking photos, and will distribute them to the media upon request.
Oh indeed. They are trying anything to keep it from looking like what really happen. Trump laid a trap and they jumped head first into it without so much as a glance. He ‘trolled’ them excellently.
Yep, there was.
He denied the MSM to be there, yet allowed the Russian media. He had them takes lots of pictures knowing that they would piss off the MSM. And boy, are they pissed. Even the Russians had sarcastic laughs at how stupid the Rats and the media are in acting outraged at the Comey firing.
The White House is furious? Bull Cheese. It's Raw Story and the rest of the media whores who are furious at being excluded.
Yep, although the Clinton News Network had just carried a segment on this too. I think the media is trying desperately to dig themselves out of a whole this time. They all look like idiots with several stories being overturned as FAKE NEWS and rumor.
This sounds like total bullschtein. “They Tricked Us” is so very NOT Trumpese.
Yep, the Kissinger addition was probably the best part. The democrats just look reactionary and limp while they run around yelling ‘evil Russians’, ‘watergate’, and he is ‘Nixon’.
Trump stands up to the media in a way I wish all Republicans would.
I am not a betting man, but I feel pretty safe putting money on saying you are right.
Is anyone else using the F-bomb more than usual
I am not prone to cuss, but the articals and the TV, is bringing out the worst of me.
Sarah Huckabee responded today at the press briefing that it was in accordance with protocol to allow Russian government photographers to cover the event along with the official WH photographer. There have been plenty of events where the US media were not present. Many have to do with the visits of other than heads of state. The Russian FM and Russian ambassador fit that definition.
True, it is unbelievable stupid. One has to remember though, that the people who believe this garbage are not thinking critically. In fact, many want to believe it.
It is a lot like sin. People know it is wrong but they will invent all sorts of lies to tell themselves so they wont feel guilty about it. (2 Timothy 4:3-4)
