Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

Tried to watch Washington Journal this morning.
Second call in we get the prototypical southern white 70 year female screeching about how vile the libs and the lib media is and how unfair it is to this president.

Then they start covering the co-conspirator photo op. Couldn't do it. I saw this live and my head was ready to explode

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

Sure, our president might be disparaging our country and apologetic towards Russia, but... what was the question again?

Speaking of our president shitting on our own country, look at this gaslighting shit!


An important thread that will be summarily ignored by most.

Sure, when you see people driving Mercedes absolutely everywhere you go, it surely does seem like the war on poverty is over.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2



SCHEDULE UPDATE: Today’s episode “Off the Record; On Your Knees” will only be live-streaming to Russian intelligence in the next room, not to the general public. (TV-MA for strong language, oral sex, casual racism, and high crimes & misdemeanors.) NEXT EPISODE: “Treason’s Greetings!”

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

I’m still at a loss as to why he is meeting Putin? Is it because Putin wanted it? Is it because Obama wouldn’t?

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

I'm watching the joint press conference now - Putin states that Russia "does not, and did not, get involved in internal matters of America". He also mentioned a joint task force to combat cyber terrorism.

Of course Putin would say that, just as long as trump doesn't also say that...

That felt like watching someone read a hostage letter. The only difference is it's our fucking president.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

This guy's fucking INSANE!


Why is he bringing up his election win at a joint presser with Putin? Like, what the ever living fuck does that have to do with anything right now?

He is so fucking insecure about his win, he has to keep yammering on about it even when no one is asking...

Well then there we have it. No meddling. No collusion. Glad we got THAT out of the way.

It would be nice to see reporters press Trump to answer the question, "do you believe Putin is telling you the truth?" and not give up until he answers with a "yes" or "no".

Putin giving Mueller a basic legal course on how to conduct one's self with international treaties and laws.

Treaties and laws are so inconvenient, aren't they Bob.

I wonder if anyone is ever embarrassed when they feel the need to take Putin's side.

But don't worry...

Trump said: "President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial (of election meddling)"

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

Does anyone think Mueller didn't realize that the 12 Russian intelligence officers named in the indictment could not be extradited?

It means he's so far deep in the hole that he'll take an enemy's side rather than our own - basically, like trump, he's gone full traitor.

And to reiterate...


The question was did you direct officials to help Trump win. He said 'yes i did, yes i did.'

Like, fucking WOW


Our president is a goddamn Russian asset folks - there can be no doubt!

Actually, I'd say the two events are very much connected...

Of course Mueller knows none of those Russian intelligence officers will ever see the inside of a U.S. courtroom.

Which makes me think Friday's indictment is a stepping stone to something else.

Guys, it's OK -- I talked to Charles Manson and he very strongly and confidently denied he had anything to do with the Tate-Labianca murders!
