Remember that meeting in the Oval Office with Minister of Foreign Affairs Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Kisliak? Remember that not a single American reporter was allowed there, but Russian reporters were there? Remember how Trump bragged to Lavrov and Kisliak
“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”
One day after firing Comey Trump makes disparaging remarks to… the Russians… Is it because the Russians were concerned with the investigation? That it impeded Trump's willingness to serve Russian interests?
However, we all miss something here.Something so important...
Putin asked Trump for the meeting in Oval Office, and Trump had no problem pleasing Putin.
But why would Putin want Trump to meet Lavrov and Kisliak in Oval Office? The meeting was not scheduled, there was no agenda, nothing was discussed. Yet this was a very important meeting to the world. Especially for the countries of the former Soviet bloc lick the Baltic countries, Georgia and, of course, the Ukraine.
This meeting showed them who is the boss. Actually, I ran into bragging about it in Russian before this happened. It was something like the suggestion to watch the news, and we would see who the boss was.
And yes, all these countries watched in horror how Russians were in the Oval Office with no agenda, no business, just having a very good time. President Trump was a charming and entertaining host. Did he ever ask himself why the party?
Give me just one other example of this happening in the WH history…
Do you think Trump even understands it? If you do, you gotta be unbelievably naïve.
Or this is our new law and order?
