Russians are laughing at Trump on TV

Russian state TV host pegs Trump as a Putin asset: ‘He really smells like an agent of the Kremlin’
A host on Russian state TV commented this week that President Donald Trump “smells like an agent of the Kremlin.”
The remarks were made on the Russian program 60 Minutes following Trump’s summit and press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

News of the 2015 meeting — confirmed Tuesday by Rohrabacher’s office — came the same day he told Politico that Monday’s indictment of 29-year-old Maria Butina was “bogus” and “stupid,” saying he believes the allegations are part of a larger plot to undermine President Donald Trump’s relationship with Russia.

Subject: Surrender Summit

Hi Lisa,

As I watched the Trump–Putin presser on Monday, it became clear to me that Trump was not a statesman, nor even an astute politician, dealing with a wily adversary. 

No, Trump acted like a timid, obsequious shopkeeper trying to mollify a powerful, overbearing customer.


“Blame, sir?  Oh no, sir, nobody could ever blame you.  These things happen, sir, and it is entirely our fault.  But we will put things right, sir; that I can tell you.  From now on, sir, we will see to it that you are completely satisfied.”

That makes sense because, to Trump, Putin is more than just the Russian president.  He is the key to Trump’s best customers: Putin controls the flow of money out of Russia and into the Trump Organization.

People wonder if Putin has kompromat on Trump and maybe he does.  Is there a pee pee tape?  Maybe there is.  Is he being blackmailed?  Maybe so.


But in the absence of evidence of any of that, a simpler explanation may be that Putin is driving Trump with a carrot and stick.  The carrot: “Play ball with me and you may someday get to build your hotel in Moscow.”  The stick: “Cross me and your companies will see no more money from Russia.”

If Putin turns off the Russian money spigot, the Trump Organization is screwed. And Trump and Putin both know it.

Trump did not go to Helsinki to represent America’s interests; he went there to protect his own interests.  The sooner the American electorate recognizes that fact and forces its Congress critters to act on it, the better off we will be.

~Rick


Thanks for writing, Rick. Trump looked terrified after meeting with Putin. He actually looked physically ill at one point. One thing that scares Trump is loss of control and money.





Ya know...at first I wanted a female President.  Then I thought another black President would be good, but now I just want an American President. - Wanda Sykes


Take Note Mr. Mueller: Republicans Obstructing Justice In Congress
Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL) revealed Tuesday that Republicans shut down any demands by Democrats to question Maria Butina, who was just indicted by the special counsel’s investigation. But Butina was one of about 30 witnesses that Democrats sought out that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and others on the Intelligence Committee denied.



Nixon ordered White House guards  to dress in royal-looking uniforms, reversed his decision after they were laughed at, 1970.


Wait, hold on, this is getting lost in the fire:
The NRA was LITERALLY colluding with a Russian spy and within 24 HOURS, there’s a law that saves them from having to disclose their dark money donors to the IRS. 
That’s a thing that happened. - Cameron Kasky


I hope someone swept that soccer ball for bugs.
