Vladimir Putin chastises Trump for pulling out of Iran agreement, says he still wants to meet.

With the rift between Trump and the G7 leaders, Putin must be happy as balls.

Courtesy of the AP:

Putin said that Washington’s decision to exit the agreement could “destabilize the situation” in the region. He added that Moscow will continue to honor its obligations under the Iranian nuclear deal.

Last month, Trump pulled out of former U.S. President Barack Obama’s landmark 2015 nuclear accord with Iran over the objections of European allies and other nations.

You know what that means.

If Trump’s boss says it’s a bad deal to pull out, Trump is suddenly going to have a change of heart. Just wait for it. 

Putin also says that he was totally down for a meeting with Trump:

Speaking to reporters in Qingdao, China, Putin said that some nations, including Austria, have offered to host his summit with Trump, should they have one.

“The U.S. president has repeatedly said that it’s reasonable to hold such a meeting,” Putin said on the sidelines of a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. “As soon as the U.S. side is ready, the meeting will take place, depending, of course, on my working schedule.”

Putin said he shares Trump’s expression of concern about a renewed arms race expressed in a March phone call.

“I can confirm that President Trump voiced concern about a new round of arms race in our latest call,” Putin said. “I fully agree with him,” he said, adding that personal meetings and work by experts are needed to tackle the issue.

Jesus, you can smell this setup coming a mile away. 

Oh this will surprise you, Putin also thinks he should be allowed back into the G7 summit:

Putin also welcomed Trump’s statement that Russia should be invited to rejoin the group that was called the G-8 before others expelled Russia.

“It wasn’t us who left,” he said. “Colleagues refused to come to Russia on well-known grounds.”

“We will be ready to greet them all in Moscow,” he added.

Boy, who saw that coming, right? 

In other news, the US Director of National Intelligence is warning that Russia is still attempting to influence our midterms and is working to break apart our alliance with our transatlantic partners:

Russia is attempting to influence the midterm elections in the United States in November as well as divide the transatlantic alliance, US Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats warned at a meeting co-hosted by the Atlantic Council in Normandy, France, on June 8.

Coats said Russia had already undertaken an “unprecedented influence campaign to interfere in the US electoral and political process” in 2016. Russia, Coats pointed out, has also meddled in France, Germany, Norway, Spain, and Ukraine. “It is 2018, and we continue to see Russian targeting of American society in ways that could affect our midterm elections,” he said.

Coats’ comments are aligned with assessments by the US intelligence community and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who in his previous role as director of the Central Intelligence Agency warned that he expected Russia to attempt to disrupt the midterm elections.

It’s almost like two different realities isn’t it?

In the one reality, Trump’s reality, Russia is just this horribly misunderstood country looking to do good in the world.

And in the other reality, Russia is acting like fucking Russia.

    Meet the guys who tape Trump’s papers back together
    The president’s unofficial ‘filing system’ involves tearing up documents into pieces, even when they’re supposed to be preserved.

    Solomon Lartey spent the first five months of the Trump administration working in the Old Executive Office Building, standing over a desk with scraps of paper spread out in front of him.

    Lartey, who earned an annual salary of $65,969 as a records management analyst, was a career government official with close to 30 years under his belt. But he had never seen anything like this in any previous administration he had worked for. He had never had to tape the president’s papers back together again.

    Armed with rolls of clear Scotch tape, Lartey and his colleagues would sift through large piles of shredded paper and put them back together, he said, “like a jigsaw puzzle.” Sometimes the papers would just be split down the middle, but other times they would be torn into pieces so small they looked like confetti.

    It was a painstaking process that was the result of a clash between legal requirements to preserve White House records and President Donald Trump’s odd and enduring habit of ripping up papers when he’s done with them — what some people described as his unofficial “filing system.”

    Under the Presidential Records Act, the White House must preserve all memos, letters, emails and papers that the president touches, sending them to the National Archives for safekeeping as historical records.

    But White House aides realized early on that they were unable to stop Trump from ripping up paper after he was done with it and throwing it in the trash or on the floor, according to people familiar with the practice. Instead, they chose to clean it up for him, in order to make sure that the president wasn’t violating the law.

      It seems to fit Trump’s personality disorders perfectly that he would destroy any piece of paper that he’s finished looking at. For one thing, he’s a con artist so there’s probably quite a bit of paperwork that he, as a con artist, would not want anyone else to see – the stuff that shows what a fraud he is. And, as a con artist and an extremely narcissistic one at that, he has no idea why anything has any value once he’s done with it. In addition, there’s the little problem that Trump has absolutely no concept of history, of the value of learning from our past. He doesn’t think he needs to know anything about how previous administrations functioned because he knows it all and he doesn’t want anyone in the future to know anything about how his administration functioned. For someone like 45, the past is meaningless and he is the present and the future. But, for us, I hope that people in the White House continue to tape up all those papers and save them. While they’re at it, they should also keep written records of who visits the president at the White House and elsewhere and keep records of what goes on in meetings he takes part in. It’s what becomes history and, besides, it’s required by law.

    Fox News described Trump arriving in Singapore for the N. Korea summit as a historic meeting between two dictators.

    Video:

    Abby Huntsman narrated over video of Trump getting off of the plane in Singapore on Fox News Sunday, “There we have him, the President Of The United States, Donald Trump about to walk down those stairs, stepping foot in Singapore as we await this historic summit with the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Anthony, talk to us about this moment. This is history. We’re we are living regardless of what happens in that meeting between the two dictators, what we are seeing right now, this is history.”

      Fox news finally tells the truth, meeting of the two dictators !!!!!

        And then Fox News does a truly Fox Newsian (and Fake Newsian) thing and apologizes to Trump for the slip of the tongue.

    Trump looked half dead at the G7. He’ll be in even worse condition in Singapore.

    …Trump’s handlers tried to cover up his failing health during the G7 by having him arrive late, leave early, and only show up for portions of meetings. It’s the same tactic they tried to use during Trump’s Middle East trip last year. It didn’t work then, and it really isn’t working now. Trump lumbered around the G7 like a zombie who had trouble keeping his body upright. At times he was laboring to speak, and some observers on social media noticed that his left arm didn’t seem to be fully functioning.

    All these physical issues with Donald Trump’s health were evident before getting to the part where he appeared to agree to the official G7 communique without knowing what was in it, only to throw a tantrum after finding out he’d inadvertently agreed to a condemnation of Russia. It’s not uncommon to see the President of the United States looking worn down due to overwork and long hours. But Trump does very little work to begin with. This year he’s very rarely appeared in public for more than brief moments here and there. Now that the multi-day G7 has exposed him, it’s clear that his health is in freefall.

    Due to poor scheduling on his part, a half-dead Donald Trump is now traveling to the other side of the world to hold a North Korea summit in Singapore, in which all eyes will be on him. The summit itself is likely to be choreographed nonsense. Instead, keep an eye on Trump’s physical and mental condition as he tries to pull off his meeting with Kim Jong Un after the G7 summit nearly finished him off.

    When Anthony Bourdain Called Out Putin and Trump—in Russia

    …“My perception of Putin? Do you really wanna hear it? A former mid-level manager in a large corporation. Short. I think that’s very important—short”—Zamir loudly clears his throat—“who has found himself master of the universe. And like a lot of short people, if you piss him off, bad things happen to you. He likes to take his shirt off a lot. He strikes me as a businessman—a businessman with an ego. OK, so he’s like Donald Trump—but shorter.”

    …Though the “Russia” episode aired in May 2014, it was filmed in late 2013, well before Trump not only declared his presidential candidacy, but U.S. intelligence agencies found that the Kremlin had interfered in the presidential election to tip the scales toward Trump—and Trump, in turn, appeared to capitulate to Russia, recently going as far as campaigning for their readmittance to the G7 summit.

    “Bad things seem to happen to critics of Vladimir Putin. Journalists, activists, even powerful oligarchs once seemingly untouchable are now fair game if they displease The Leader,” narrates Bourdain, before seguing to a restaurant dinner scene with Boris Nemtsov, a leading Putin critic.

    According to Bourdain, he and his producers approached “four or five” Moscow restaurants about scheduling the scene with Nemtsov, and when they found out who the host was dining with, the establishments swiftly canceled the scene. After much hunting, they finally scored a spot at an unnamed restaurant with a British chef.

    “Critics of the government—critics of Putin—bad things seem to happen to them,” Bourdain tells Nemtsov over borscht.

    …The episode ends with a defeated Bourdain describing—in voiceover—how Russia has recently annexed Crimea and amassed their troops at the Ukrainian border. “The world has done nothing. It will do nothing. As Vladimir well knew,” says Bourdain. “He wins. Again.”

    Trump Goes to War Against the Democracies
    Through the G7 summit, the brittle pretense of unity held together. Then came the tweets.

    …Like some nightmare family Thanksgiving from which the most difficult relative departs first, everybody breathed easier when the president at last left. Perhaps after all, it was sort of a success?

    Then, something happened. From Air Force One, the president emitted a vituperative series of tweets aimed at his Canadian counterpart. What had triggered him? Had he belatedly seen that photograph of Angela Merkel looming over him? As many have said: Trump thinks in images, not ideas. Who could ever know? Trump probably does not know himself.

    Ominously too: Once Trump started tweeting out abuse, the snakepit of hissing, warring aides around the president suddenly competed to amplify and deepen the quarrel. At 6:56 pm, National-Security Adviser John Bolton tweeted out his own version of the offending image of Merkel topping Trump—only with a caption reinterpreting the scene as proof of Trump’s strength and defiance. “Just another #G7 where other countries expect America will always be their bank. The President made it clear today. No more.” On pro-Trump Twitter—and then on pro-Trump TV and radio—that would almost instantly consolidate the new message line. The allies had tried to muscle the strong-willed president. But he had held firm.

    Of course, all this blatantly contradicts yesterday’s message line.

    “I understood early that Facebook was how Donald Trump was going to win. Twitter is how he talked to the people. Facebook was going to be how he won.”

    “Infrastructure.”
    “Parscale said the Trump campaign used the technology to microtarget on a scale never seen before — and to customize their ads for individual voters.”
    “Parscale took some heat for taking micro targeting too far because he hired Cambridge Analytica. The company, now defunct, used so-called psycho-graphics that micro-target ads based on personality. For instance, an extrovert would get one kind of message, a neurotic person another. It’s controversial because of its Orwellian overtones.” “While he tried to persuade Democrats to vote for Mr. Trump — the campaign was accused, in a Businessweek article, of trying to suppress the vote of “idealistic white liberals, young women and African Americans,” a charge he denies.”

    The NRA’s overall spending during the 2016 election jumped by more than $100 million over the previous year-“All of these efforts were designed to harm Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and help Republican Donald Trump.”
    “The NRA was Trump’s biggest financial backer and they contributed over $30 million to his presidential campaign. It has been speculated that much of this money was secretly funneled from Russia to help Trump, and this latest report supports that theory. It is expected that the ultimate findings of special counsel Robert Mueller will include more details concerning the flow of money from Russia to the NRA to the Trump presidential campaign.”
