‘I have never been to Prague’ meme is the only way to prove you’ve never been to Prague

How can you prove you've never been to Prague? It's easier than you think.

One of the salacious details in the intelligence dossier published by BuzzFeed about Donald Trump was that his special counsel, Michael Cohen, met with Russian officials in Prague in August 2016. 

It appears to have been a false claim, but Cohen’s first public statement denying it was … less than definitive. 

The implication, perhaps, was that he could open up his passport and show you there were no stamps from Czechia. But just tweeting a picture of the cover of your passport and saying you’ve never been somewhere is about as overwhelmingly convincing as sharing a photo of the International Space Station and saying “I live here.”

Naturally, Twitter ran with the conceit.

Here is guessing at least some of those folks have been to Prague. Whether they met with Russian intel is another story—albeit one that’s not as funny as what’s taking place on Twitter right now.
