Trump campaign “coffee boyGeorge Papadopoulos goes down in flames during his interview on MSNBC’s AM Joy, after Joy Ann Reid asks him why would the Australian High Commissioner single him out for entrapment.

Papadopoulos claimed that he didn’t tell the Australian High Commissioner Alexander Downer that he learned that Russia had dirt on Hillary Clinton. The point Papadopoulos is missing is that Australia didn’t have a bone in this dogfight.

“Leading up to my work with the Trump campaign and in my policies with Trump, I was very hostile to Russia,” Papadopoulos said. “If Russia is responsible for interfering in our election, I’ve made it clear, I hope they’re punished.”

Joy Reid didn’t allow Papadopoulos to evade the questions, even though he still managed to repeatedly plug his book. He also said his lawyers have petitioned Trump for a pardon.
