What If It's Even Worse Than We Suppose?

As Trump arranges to meet face-to-face and privately with Vladimir Putin later this month, the collusion between the two men metastasizing from a dark accusation into an open alliance, it would be dangerous not to consider the possibility that the summit is less a negotiation between two heads of state than a meeting between a Russian-intelligence asset and his handler. ... How do you even think about the small but real chance — 10 percent? 20 percent? — that the president of the United States has been covertly influenced or personally compromised by a hostile foreign power for decades?
Three decades, to be accurate.

Funny thing: The Right's been bleating about Obama being a "seekrit Mooslim" based on zero evidence, other than his mother took him there for four years (between ages six and ten). But there is quite a bit more evidence and proven connections between Trump and the Russians, to which they close their eyes and repeat their mantra of "but, but Hillary.".

This will all come out, sooner or later. I, for one, will remind people in the Party of Trump that they have actively supported a Russian intelligence asset and a traitor.

And no, I haven't paid any attention to whom Our Traitor-in-Chief has nominated for the Supreme Court.

Did Donnie bow to his master?? IIRC, Barry bowed to the King of Saud.

With a closed door meeting, isn't it more likely he'll kneel?

B, your question has an answer.


Did Barry, as you so respectfully call him, salute any North Koreans when he was presiding over this country?

Well, let's see, he's picked fights with our allies, gutted the state department, started a trade war that only harms us, China, and our allies, called off military exercises with South Korea, denigrated NATO when he either doesn't understand how it works or was straight up lying about it (which is all the same to Putin), met with Russia's foreign minister, ambassador, and a spy chief in the oval office with no US media but a Russian photographer- and disclosed code-word level classified intel to them, and how many times is it now that we've found out about a meeting or call with Putin only because the Russian "press" told us about it? Nine, if I remember correctly.
But maybe he hasn't actually bowed to Putin, but with all of the kissing of his ass, I don't see how that matters very much.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, he tried to talk France into leaving the EU, and short of the disbanding of NATO (which he's working on today) the breakup of the EU is at the top of Putin's wish list.
