Predictably, he's now saying he said something different from what he was clearly saying in context (that he would accept oppo research on an opponent provided by a foreign government), but just for the moment, I want to bask in the possibility of his meeting with cetacean royalty.
Of course he talks with people from foreign governments. Context matters. This is gaslighting.
UPDATE: He's still going! I've called this phenomenon "going Boom!" It's like he uses Twitter as a stress-valve for his grievances.
