Amazing that he couldn't even use proper grammar in answering the most important question of his life.

❎ "I never worked for Russia."
🆗️ "I've never worked for Russia."
2/ And his big denial doesn't even cover what he's *really* accused of—as what's at issue here is whether he's worked "with" Russia rather than "for" Russia. Not that anyone should believe him anyway, but this is what he should've said:

🆗️ "I've never coordinated with Russia."
3/ And of course the use of the word "Russia" here is inaccurate, as what we're speaking of is Putin's Kremlin, and more specifically than even that, *agents* of Putin's Kremlin. So what he *really* should've said is:

🆗️ "I've never coordinated with agents of Putin's Kremlin."
4/ Except Trump *can't* say "I've never coordinated with agents of Putin's Kremlin," as when Papadopoulos looked him in the eye on March 31, 2016 and told him he was acting as a Kremlin intermediary to set up a secret summit with Putin, Trump *encouraged* and then *promoted* him.
5/ So if you've been following this thread, you'll see that I wasn't making a joke about grammar—I was proving how important grammar is to proper journalism. Trump's poor grammar hides the fact that he can't honestly utter the grammatically correct sentence America needs to hear.
PS/ Shrewd readers will note how obvious it should've been to Trump that the *full* sentence he needs to utter to America right now, not that it would be the truth if he said it, is this:

🆗️ "I am not now coordinating—and have never coordinated—with agents of Putin's Kremlin."
PS2/ Instead we got:

❎ "I never worked for Russia."

From a man who says he has the "best words."

A man who then went on to angrily admonish the national media for asking him this incredibly obvious question in the first place.

Which question he answered like a second grader.
