So Trump and Putin are meeting in Helsinki right now.

The puppet meets face to face with the man pulling his strings.

According to CNN, this was how Putin greeted Trump:

“Distinguished president, I am delighted to be able to meet you here in Finland. We have been in continual contact by telephone since the last time, and obviously, the time has come to have a business-like conversation because there is so much happening in the world that we need to talk about.”

What is happening in the world?

Like for instance, those people in England being poisoned by a Russian nerve agent? Or the continued attacks on America’s infrastructure? Or the new indictments against the Russian agents who hacked our 2016 elections?

No? None of that?

Trump actually blamed strained relations with Russia on American stupidity:

That is what Putin got to read right before he met with Trump. Sort of sets a tone, don’t you think? 

Trump also explained why he wants to meet with Putin in private:

Trump requested alone time to better personally assess Putin and develop a leader-to-leader relationship ( along the same lines of why he requested to meet Kim Jong Un alone in Singapore).

Trump has previously expressed anger at leaks coming from his meetings with foreign leaders and told aides he doesn’t want sensitive information leaking from his meeting with Putin.

Trump doesn’t want aides, who may take a harder line on Russia, undercutting or interrupting him in his conversation with Putin.

Pretty clear that the translation of that is simply that Trump does not want people to see him acting as Putin’s subordinate and does not want the media to overhear him receiving his marching orders. 

Here was WaPo’s take on the meeting so far:

Seated alongside Putin, Trump began by congratulating Russia on successfully hosting the World Cup soccer tournament, which concluded Sunday, then noted that the United States and Russia have “not been getting along too well” in recent years. He said he hoped that would change and that “I think we will end up having an extraordinary relationship.”

“Getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing,” Trump said, as Putin slouched in his chair. Trump added that the “world wants to see us getting along.”

Trump said he and Putin have a “lot of good things to talk about, and things to talk about,” including trade, military issues, nuclear proliferation and China, in particular, their “mutual friend,” Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Trump did not mention Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential campaign as one of the topics to be discussed.

Of course, he didn’t mention the 201 presidential campaign. After all, he knows exactly what happened and why. 

This meeting (Which the Russians refer to as a “summit.”) is clearly one that Putin requested so that he can show the world that Russia is now so powerful it actually has its very own pet US president.

This is just another huge propaganda opportunity for the Kremlin, and America achieves nothing by participating.

Which is just further proof that Donald Trump does not work for the American people.

He works for the guy that helped put him into the White House. 


Putin actually showed up late which left Trump waiting. That is the same power move that Trump pulled on Theresa May.

    Trump is meeting his handler, the only way is behind closer doors with no one else in hearing range. It will be glorious believe me, trump will report on dismantling of the US government, and withdrawal from NATO going on schedule, plus further reduction in civil rights in the US, the elimination of all free expression and freedom of the press, etc. We will become a Putin satellite, just as Venezuela is a Cuban satellite.

      “our relationship has never been worse than it is now. However, that changed as of about four hours ago. I really believe that. Nothing would be easier politically than to refuse to meet, to refuse to engage. But that would not accomplish anything. As president, I cannot make decisions on foreign policy in a futile effort to appease partisan critics or the media or Democrats who want to do nothing but resist and obstruct.”” OK?! Right?!

      • Beaglemom July 16, 2018 at 3:30 pm

        Was Trump completely zoned out during the Cuban Missle Crisis? Was he also asleep when Russian tanks crushed the nascent Hungarian revolution in 1656? And a few other times too. I remember crouching under my desk in elementary school or crouching down in the corridor during atomic bomb drills in the early 1950’s. We were all worried about the Soviet Union then and we better be today because, clearly, the Idiot-in-Chief has no recollection and no knowledge of the past seventy years in this country and Putin’s Russia is no different from the Soviet Union except in name. Trump’s only two years younger than me; he should know this stuff.

    Putin is getting incredible value for his money. Not only does he own a US President and several members of Congress. But he has also convinced a sizeable portion of the population that NATO is our foe and Russia should be our friend. That Putin guy is definitely playing chess, while the President and most of the US seems to be playing stare at the blank wall.

    Ex-CIA chief tears into Trump for one-on-one meeting with Putin: What is he hiding?

    ‘Why did Trump meet 1 on 1 with Putin? What might he be hiding from Bolton, Pompeo, Kelly, & the American public? How will Putin use whatever Trump could be hiding to advantage Russia & hurt America? Trump’s total lack of credibility renders spurious whatever explanation he gives.’

    Ex-Russia ambassador: Trump’s approach is ‘blame America first’

    …Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, on Monday slammed President Trump after he blamed the U.S. for poor relations with Russia ahead of his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    Trump “tweeted that America is at fault, blame America first for the tensions in U.S.-Russia relations,” McFaul said during an appearance on MSNBC Monday morning.

    “Not mentioning the fact that Russian annexed territory in Crimea and sparked a war — 10,000 people have died in Eastern Ukraine. Not mentioning he supports this brutal dictator in Syria where half a million people died, and not mentioning the fact he violated our sovereignty in 2016,” the former ambassador continued.

    “So all of those things, in my view, are the reasons why there’s tensions in U.S.-Russia relations,” McFaul added. “For President Trump to just insinuate as he just did in his initial remarks today, well bygones — let’s forget about all that stuff and move on because I want a great relationship with you, Putin. That’s just not serving America’s national interest, in my view.”

    Trump shook hands with Putin, winked at him, and then pointedly ignored reporters’ questions about whether the two men would discuss Russia’s election interference during their summit in Helsinki.

    With a one-two punch that hit America hard on Monday, Trump first blamed the United States for supposedly wrecking its relationship with Russia — and then made it clear that he won’t hold Russia accountable for hijacking the 2016 U.S. election during his summit with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland.

    During opening remarks outlining the goals for the bilateral meeting, Trump said he and Putin have a “lot of good things to talk about, and things to talk about,” including trade, military issues, nuclear proliferation, and China.

    Conspicuously absent from Trump’s list, however, was Russia’s orchestrated effort to undermine American elections.

    According to a White House press pool report, Trump ignored several shouted questions from reporters about Russian interference, and Putin “appeared to smirk” when he heard them.

    Trump also referred to Chinese President Xi Jinping as “our mutual friend” — and at one point, actually winked at Putin.

    Parents waiting to be reunited with their children write heartbreaking letter: “We are desperate”

    “To the people of the United States, please help us. We are desperate parents.”

    A group of adult detainees at an immigration detention center have signed an open letter appealing to the American people to help them be reunited with their children after being separated at the border.

    In the letter dated July 15, the 54 detainees at the Port Isabel Service Detention Center in Los Fresnos, Texas, write in Spanish that their children don’t recognize their voices anymore, and feel “abandoned” and “without love.”

    The parents say they are not criminals and came to the United Sates in order to save their lives and those of their children.
    How bad is it in the countries these families are fleeing? This bad:


    “We were not prepared for the nightmare that we faced here. The United States government kidnapped our children with tricks and didn’t give us the opportunity to say goodbye,” they write.

    The parents say they have heard little about their children in the more than a month that they’ve been separated. Their kids, they say, are living amidst strangers and they have been told that some are living with new families.

    “Each day is more painful that the last. Many of us have only had the chance to speak to our children once (this is very difficult because the social workers never answer). The children cry, they don’t recognize our voices and they feel abandoned and unloved. This makes us feel like we are dead.

    “With all this trauma; the nightmares, anxiety and pain that this government has caused us and our children, we still have to fight for our asylum cases,” the letter continues.

    Trump stood beside Putin and labeled Democrats and the media the enemy

    …Trump was standing next to the man who attacked US democracy less than two years ago, and the people who he labels the enemy of peace are the political party who are fighting back against these attacks, and the free press that is reporting on the attacks. This summit was always going to be a bad look for Trump, but it almost immediately morphed into something more.

    The press conference is exposing Trump as an enemy of the United States. When Trump attacks Democrats and the free press while sharing the stage with Putin, he is showing the world where his loyalties rest. Trump loyalties are with himself and Putin, as he just used his opening statement in a press conference to attack all of those who are trying to hold his presidential campaign and the Russians accountable for the crimes that were committed during the 2016 election.

    MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle asked the key question. Why is the President Of The United States bowing to Putin and letting Russia lead?


    …Trump and Republicans spent years claiming that Obama was “leading from behind,” but their president is following Putin. Trump is showing no leadership. Ruhle seized on the key nuances of diplomacy and power. Putin is showing the world that he has the power over Donald Trump. Putin is making Trump look weak, which admittedly isn’t difficult to do, a dime store dictator like Kim Jong-un just did the same thing in Singapore.

    It isn’t just that Trump doesn’t know what he is doing and is a buffoon on the world stage. Trump is actively undermining the power and credibility of the US. He has been an elevate authoritarians and dictators tour, and the message he is sending is that democracy is weak. Authoritarians are strong. Trump is a threat to world democratic stability and what he is doing in his “summit” with Putin is a disgrace and a threat to the United States of America.

    How the Right Wing Convinces Itself That Liberals Are Evil
    Since the 1950s, the conservative movement has justified bad behavior—including supporting Donald Trump—by persuading itself that the left is worse.

    If you spend any time consuming right-wing media in America, you quickly learn the following: Liberals are responsible for racism, slavery, and the Ku Klux Klan. They admire Mussolini and Hitler, and modern liberalism is little different from fascism or, even worse, communism. The mainstream media and academia cannot be trusted because of the pervasive, totalitarian nature of liberal culture.

    This belief in a broad liberal conspiracy is standard in the highest echelons of the conservative establishment and right-wing media. The Russia investigation is dismissed, from the president on down, as a politicized witch hunt. George Soros supposedly paid $300 to each participant in the “March for Our Lives” in March. (Disclosure: I marched that day, and I’m still awaiting my check.) What is less well appreciated by liberals is that the language of conspiracy is often used to justify similar behavior on the right. The Russia investigation is not just a witch hunt, it’s the product of the real scandal, which is Hillary-Russia-Obama-FBI collusion, so we must investigate that. Soros funds paid campus protestors, so Turning Point USA needs millions of dollars from Republican donors to win university elections. The liberal academic establishment prevents conservative voices from getting plum faculty jobs, so the Koch Foundation needs to give millions of dollars to universities with strings very much attached.

    This did not begin with Donald Trump. The modern Republican Party may be particularly apt to push conspiracy theories to rationalize its complicity with a staggeringly corrupt administration, but this is an extension of, not a break from, a much longer history. Since its very beginning, in the 1950s, members of the modern conservative movement have justified bad behavior by convincing themselves that the other side is worse. One of the binding agents holding the conservative coalition together over the course of the past half century has been an opposition to liberalism, socialism, and global communism built on the suspicion, sometimes made explicit, that there’s no real difference among them.

      “The title of that LP? {The Blue Book,} Ronald Reagan Speaks Out Against Socialized Medicine. The American left is used to waiting for liberals to finally get ruthless. Through the eyes of the right, they always have been. ”
      “Huie declared in the first issue of the new Mercury. “We shall cry a new crusade of intolerance . . . the intolerance of bores, morons, world-savers, and damn fools.”
      “. In a 1952 American Mercury article, a twenty-seven-year-old William F. Buckley accused liberal historians of a “conspiracy against giving the American people the facts” about Franklin Roosevelt, and claimed that they thus “betrayed the American people.” In his debut book, God and Man at Yale, published the year before, Buckley had dismissed academic freedom as a cynical shield wielded by left-wing faculty to protect themselves from the political consequences of their views; he advocated using the threat of withholding alumni donations as a weapon against the liberalism and leftism running amok in the academy. Buckley would soon become the gatekeeper of “respectable” conservatism by pushing back against the conspiratorial excesses of the John Birch Society. But he began his career by indulging in some of those rhetorical flourishes himself”<Right
      " Because liberals resisted efforts to purge communists and their sympathizers from schools and universities, and insisted on pesky legal technicalities like the Fifth Amendment. “[O]rganization is the genius of Communism,” Schwarz continued, and so “an anti-Communist program needs organization.” Just as communists “operate through a great number of front organizations, each of which is tuned to some specific motivating dynamic,” so must “every religious, professional, economic, and cultural group” adopt this model to “organize an anti-Communist program.” " The Birchers would, like the communists, organize themselves into cells (or, as Welch preferred to call them, “chapters”), set up front organizations, and distribute propaganda " "in the early 1960s the John Birch Society claimed around 100,000 members, more than the Communist Party USA at its height in the 1940s, easily making it the largest and best-organized group on the right. The Birchers’ on-the-ground presence certainly dwarfed the reach of the National Review, which in 1961 counted only 29,000 weekly subscribers.

In August 1963, Welch accused the civil rights movement of being a communist plot to create a “Soviet Negro Republic” in the South, with Martin Luther King Jr. as president" " “What we want to do,” Welch wrote in the Birch Society’s bulletin, “is to concentrate the whole opposition to what is happening in the South, and resentment of it, into one course of action: The Movement to Impeach Earl Warren.” "Martin Luther King himself was suspect—National Review called him the “source of violence in others” in 1965." "Evangelicals like Jerry Falwell and Francis Schaeffer—as well as Catholics like Paul Weyrich and Mormons like W. Cleon Skousen—conflated liberalism, socialism, and communism under the broader umbrella of “secularism” and built alliances with one another to combat this scourge." "The evangelicals and their allies in other denominations were united in their opposition to abortion, gay rights, and feminism—the tangible realities of the nefarious left-liberal agenda. " " In 1980, televangelist James Robison declared in a speech that he was “sick and tired of hearing about all of the radicals, and the perverts, and the liberals, and the leftists, and the communists coming out of the closet,” and called for “God’s people” to fight back." "Pat Buchanan deftly shifted midsentence in his infamous 1992 speech at the Republican National Convention from the Cold War to the “cultural war,” the “religious war . . . for the soul of America,” suggesting that the fight against liberalism, feminism, and the “gay agenda” was not just the equivalent, but in fact the continuation, of the Cold War itself."
      "The “culture war” was the basis of the Clinton hatred phenomenon in the 1990s, which—as in 2016—was particularly focused on Hillary Clinton. She was the worst of all possible worlds: an elitist big-government liberal with degrees from Wellesley and Yale Law, a feminist who initially refused to change her name after marrying Bill, declined to embrace the image of a mother and housewife in the White House, and was rumored to be the real powerhouse next to her husband." " Clinton hatred never went away. It reappeared with a vengeance in 2016."
      "The idea that the left is depraved, corrupt, and ruthless has been an important strain of American conservatism since the movement began. But in the Trump era, it has metastasized. Right-wing policy ideas have been so thoroughly discredited—does anyone even argue anymore that trickle-down economics will ensure mass prosperity?—that the only apparent reason for conservatism’s existence is to fight back against evil liberals."

    How Vladimir Putin outfoxed Donald Trump at Helsinki before their meeting even began

    Russian President Vladimir Putin’s summit with US counterpart Donald Trump was never going to be a balanced negotiation.

    Putin had everything to gain, and Trump everything to lose. The Russian president controlled the agenda from the start, and Trump apparently didn’t even realise he needed to prepare. Putin came to the negotiations fresh from the diplomatic triumph of the World Cup (which even overshadowed the latest Novichok poisonings in the UK); Trump came fresh from a disastrous NATO summit and a terrible visit to the UK, where he was met by throngs of balloon-wielding protesters. It isn’t hard to see who’s running this show.

    The week before the meeting, aboard Air Force One, Trump announced the issues he was prepared to negotiate on, including Crimea and Syria. He couldn’t have picked a better agenda for Putin, who wants concessions on all these matters and now has the opportunity to get them.

    …The agenda, however, is only a part of the problem. Just holding the summit is a major setback for international politics. Putin wants to disrupt the Western alliance, and he has advanced that cause simply by getting Trump to show up.

    …Trump’s desire to boost his reputation will also be his downfall. Putin is a shrewd politician; he knows that the way to Trump’s heart is through Trump’s ego, and that flattery will get him the concessions he wants. Trump’s overinflated sense of self could lead to some dangerous and questionable political agreements being made.

    CNN reporter says Trump-Putin summit ‘feels like a wedding’: ‘I don’t know which side is bride and which is groom’

    …Following Trump’s two-hour private meeting with Putin, Acosta described the press briefing room to CNN host Anderson Cooper, who noted that the room was divided into two aisles.

    “I don’t know which side is the bride and which side is the groom,” Acosta said while standing on a chair. “It sort of feels like we’re at a wedding here. And on the other side of the room are our friends from the Russian Federation and other journalists who have been credentialed by the Kremlin.”

    The CNN correspondent said that it was not immediately clear if reporters would have a chance to ask questions of the two leaders.

    “When the president of the United States tweets that the press in the United States are the enemy of the people and he attacks members of the press as ‘fake news’ and so on, I don’t think it would be a profile encouraged to come in here, give statements having assembled these members of the press and not take any questions,” Acosta observed. “It seems to me when you dish it out, you ought to be able to take it. If the press is going to refer to the press corps of the United States as the enemy of the people, he owes it to the rest of us here to take a couple of questions.”

    When asked if Putin “has anything” on Trump, Sen. Merkley said it was, “likely.”

    “Your view is that the pee tape is real?” Smith asked.

    “Something close to that,” Sen. Merkley replied. “Something close to that.”

    Here is how Christopher Steele, a former top British intelligence officer, described what has become know as the “pee tape.”

    “One which had borne fruit for them was to exploit TRUMP’S personal obsessions and sexual perversion in order to obtain suitable ‘kompromaf (compromising material) on him. According to Source D, where s/he had been present, Trump’s (perverted) conduct in Moscow included hiring the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, where he knew President and Mrs OBAMA (whom he hated) had stayed on one of their official trips to Russia, and defiling the bed where they had slept by employing a number of prostitutes to perform a ’golden showers’ (urination) show in front of him. The hotel was known to be under FSB control with microphones and concealed cameras in all the main rooms to record anything they wanted to,” the Steele Dossier explained.

    “Speaking separately in June 2016, Source B (the former top level Russian intelligence officer) asserted that TRUMP’s unorthodox behavior in Russia over the years had provided the authorities there with enough embarrassing material on the now Republican presidential candidate to be able to blackmail him if they so wished,” the report continued.

    Trump Refuses To Condemn Putin Over Russian Election Meddling: ‘We’re All To Blame’ For Poor Relations

    The U.S. president continued to insist there was no collusion between his campaign and Moscow.

    Donald Trump refused to blame Russian President Vladimir Putin for Moscow’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

    “I hold both countries responsible,” Trump said during a news conference Monday when asked whether he held Russia accountable for anything in particular.

    “I think the United States has been foolish,” he said following a bilateral summit between the two leaders in Helsinki, Finland. “I think we’ve all been foolish. I think we’re all to blame.”

    He repeated a phrase he often uses ― that there has been no collusion ― and said accusations of collusion continue to hurt relations between the two countries.

    “My people came to me they said they think it’s Russia,” Trump said in reference to hacking in the U.S. election. “President Putin just said it’s not Russia.”

    Trump said he has reason to believe Putin but also said it’s important to find the server that the FBI took from the Democratic National Committee.

    Putin also deflected questioning about election interference, responding to a reporter’s question with another question: “Could you name a single fact that would definitively prove the collusion? I don’t see any reason why Russia would interfere in the 2016 election.”

    Fucking traitor.

    Asked If He Believes Putin Or US Intel On 2016 Meddling, Trump Rants And Raves

    Anderson Cooper: Trump Presser ‘One Of The Most Disgraceful’ I’ve Ever Seen

  26. Anonymous July 16, 2018 at 8:45 am

    Trump was asked to confront Putin on attacking the 2016 election, and the result was a total meltdown where he started spinning conspiracy theories and claimed that there was no reason for Russia to attack the US.


    Trump was asked, “Just now president Putin denied having anything to do with the election interference in 2016. Every U.S. Intelligence agency concluded Russia did. Who, my first question for you is who do you believe? My second question is would you now with the whole world watching tell president Putin, would you denounce what happened in 2016 and would you warn him to never do it again?”

    Trump’s answer was to fall apart:

    ‘Let me just say we have two thoughts. You have groups that are wondering why the FBI the server. Why haven’t they taken the server? Why was the FBI told to leave the office of the Democratic National Committee? I’ve been wondering that. I’ve been asking that for months and months and tweeting it out and calling it out on social media. Where is the server? I want to know where is the server, and what is the server saying? With that being said, all I can do is ask the question, my people came to me, Dan Coats came to me and some others. They said they think it’s Russia. I have president Putin. He just said it’s not Russia. I will say this. I don’t see any reason why it would be, but I really do want to see the server, but I have — I have confidence in both parties. I really believe that this will probably go on for a while, but I don’t think it can go on without finding out what happened to the server.

    What happened to the servers of the Pakistani gentleman that worked on the DNC. Where are those servers? They’re missing. Where are they? What happened to Hillary Clinton’s e-mails? 33,000 e-mails gone, just gone. I think in Russia they wouldn’t be gone so easily. I think it’s a disgrace we can’t get Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that president Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today. And what he did is an incredible offer. He offered to have the people working on the case come and work with their investigators, with respect to the 12 people. I think that’s an incredible offer.’

    …Trump was asked about confronting Russia and telling them not to attack our country again, and his answer was to meltdown into full conspiracy theory mode DNC servers and Hillary Clinton’s emails. Trump believes Putin on the attack because he wants to. If Trump admits the attack, then he is not a legitimate president. Russia’s fantastic offer is the same as somebody who burns your house down offering to find the arsonist.

      The $erver? Under his nose> alfa bank ping ping bong>
      In Trump Tower.
      “The computer scientists believe there was one logical conclusion to be drawn: The Trump Organization shut down the server after Alfa was told that the Times might expose the connection. [Uninvolved computer scientist Nicholas] Weaver told me the Trump domain was “very sloppily removed.” Or as another of the researchers put it, it looked like “the knee was hit in Moscow, the leg kicked in New York.”

      What the scientists amassed wasn’t a smoking gun. It’s a suggestive body of evidence that doesn’t absolutely preclude alternative explanations. But this evidence arrives in the broader context of the campaign and everything else that has come to light: ”
      “experts looked at pieces, and confirmed part of the story. Vixie rightly confirmed that the pattern of DNS requests came from humans, and not automated systems. Chris Davis rightly confirmed the server doesn’t look like a normal email server.

      Neither of them, however, confirmed that Trump has a secret server for communicating with the Russians. Both of their statements are consistent with what I describe above — that’s it’s a Cendyn operated server for marketing campaigns ”

    Putin Admits During Press Conference That He Wanted Trump To Win

    …It doesn’t take any reading between the lines to understand that Putin was saying that Russia wanted Trump to win, which flies in the face of what Trump has been claiming for years that Russia didn’t want him to win because he would be tougher on them than Hillary Clinton.

    The press conference has been extraordinary because no matter how hard Trump and Putin try to cover their tracks, the truth leaks out in little drops while they speak. It has been proven that Russia attacked the US because they wanted Donald Trump to win, and now we have an indirect admission from Putin himself that Trump was the Russians preferred candidate.

    ‘High Crimes and Misdemeanors’: Former CIA Director Calls Trump-Putin Presser an Impeachable Offense

    ‘Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???’

      “Brennan observed the proceedings and responded by accusing Trump of committing “high crimes and misdemeanors,” the same words found in Article II Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution laying out the grounds for impeachment.

      “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors,” the Constitution says.”

    Asked directly, Putin does not deny possessing “compromising material” on Trump
    Yes, this is about the “pee tape.”

    Trump and Putin: what we know is damning
    In Helsinki, Trump’s true message to Putin will be: “Thank you.” And we have no idea what to do about it.

    Trump’s rambling attacks on Mueller and Democrats at the Putin presser, annotated
    Rather than condemn Russia, Trump ranted about Peter Strzok, Michael Flynn’s prosecution, the DNC server, and a “Pakistani gentleman.”

    Trump’s horrible Putin press conference, in one tweet
    “I think that the probe is a disaster for our country,” Trump said.

    ‘The U.S. president just called for an end to the investigation into Russian meddling in the American election while standing next to the Russian president.’

    Read Trump’s incredible, disgraceful attacks on Democrats during Putin presser
    Some of the absolute worst moments from one of the Trump presidency’s lowlights.

    …Trump blamed the entire issue of Russian election interference on sore-loser Democrats, saying that it was an excuse for “why the Democrats lost an election which, frankly, they should have been able to win, because the Electoral College is much more advantageous for Democrats.” He also bashed the Democratic party — and “the media” — for raising questions about Trump’s summit with Putin, saying that they were harming global peace and security for partisan gain:

      “he is president because of ~IT~.”
      “Trump, arguing that he ran a “clean campaign” to victory, appeared to be confused about how he actually won the presidential election in 2016: because of the Electoral College.

      “The Democrats lost an election, which, frankly, they should have been able to win, because the Electoral College is much more advantageous for Democrats, as you know, than it is to Republicans,” Trump said in the press conference with Putin.

      To be clear, Trump only won the presidential election in 2016 because of the Electoral College. ”

    It was glaring obvious at the press conference that trump is a traitor,only cares about himself,not thr USA and is deathly afraid of putin.
    His remarks about thr US and the press were disgusting.
    Also,how many tranquilizers did he take before the meeting?
    Did he give a list of candidates hr wants putin to “elect” in 2018?

    Very obvious putin has the goods on trump and if there is a tape,it would be a good time to release it.

    Now let’s see how many republicans continue to support the downfall of the US.

    From now on Air Force One should be grounded and Trump needs to use his personal Trump Jet for foreign and domestic trips so the public will know he’s working for himself and not the country.

      Pits one against the other. Groping girls.
