Sen Perdue was in the private meeting, the one that Dick Durbin is blabbing “sh**hole” all over the world about. He says Durbin is lying about what Trump said and he’s lied before
Senator David Perdue voices his disgust over the smear tactics that are being employed by Democrat Dick Durbin in smearing President Trump as a racist over words that were not even said.
In an interview on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” Perdue said, “This all started with a total misrepresentation of a meeting that happened last Thursday. And people forget that just two days earlier, this President, in an open meeting, with media in there for almost an hour, George, debated this with both sides.”
He describes the scope of the meeting, much of it in keeping with America’s desires for border security, including the border wall. Perdue said, “And then coming out that meeting we had a gross misrepresentation of what happened in that meeting, but it’s not the first time we’ve had a gross misrepresentation by that individual.”
He explains that “The gross misrepresentation was that language was used in there that was not used and also that the tone of that meeting was not contributory and not constructive.” [[VIDEO BELOW]]
Perdue reminds the viewers that “In 2013, Senator Durbin also made the same accusation against a Republican leader in a meeting with ‘president’ Obama and said that he chewed out the ‘president,’ it was so disrespectful to ‘president’ Obama we couldn’t even have the meeting.”
“That’s what he said in 2013. Later that day, the ‘president’s’ own press secretary came out and said, and I quote, ‘It did not happen.’ This is about a gross misrepresentation,” says Perdue, “and it’s not the first time. These people have been trying for 35 years to solve this immigration problem without success for one reason and that is I don’t believe they’re serious about trying to solve that right now.”
Perdue calls Stephanopoulos on his use of a standard, vague generality of presumed veracity, his statement that multiple sources support Durbin’s lies. Purdue replies, “Multiple sources? There were six of us in the room. I haven’t heard any of those six sources, other than Senator Durbin, talk about what was said. This was a private meeting.”
Stephanopoulos talks over Perdue with some gossipy sourcing, saying, “Well, Senator Graham told Senator Scott the reports were basically accurate.” Perdue told him to take it up with him, reminding him that “basically” is an operative word.
It’s also a word that is used to convey an apparent substantive similarity when the exact match doesn’t exist. Therefore, by using the word “basically,” both Scott and Graham are agreeing with Senator Perdue and President Trump.
The statement by Durbin is a lie intended to bring political pressure upon President Trump to benefit the Democrats. Had Trump actually used the word “sh**hole, Scott and Graham would have had no reason to qualify their statement with the word “basically,” they would have used the word “exactly.”
