They have a talking point.
After President Trump’s admission in a tweet that Russia helped get him elected — which he walked back minutes later — Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale minimized the remark as a mere “typo,” while simultaneously attacking The New York Times for writing about the President’s tweet.

In an early morning Twitter rant about the Russia probe, Trump claimed he had “nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected.” While speaking to reporters shortly after, Trump flip-flopped: “No, Russia did not get me elected. Do you know who got me elected? I got me elected. Russia didn’t help me at all.”
Despite the supposed mistake, the tweet has not yet been deleted.
