[But see update]

Wow. Sorry to do the naïve surprised-shocked thing yet again, but I am surprised-shocked. The White House is 1984ing us. Its official transcript and video of the Trump-Putin press conference last week both have a missing piece – a sliced out, concealed, censored piece. Can you guess which one? It’s where the Reuters reporter asks Putin if he wanted Trump to win and Putin says “Yes I did, yes I did.”

Updating to add: Washington Post reporter Philip Bump says that’s not what happened, that it was a glitch not a deliberate censoring.
