Donald Trump very excited for his first meeting with his Russian puppet master in Germany, his handlers much less so.

Courtesy of TPM: 

President Donald Trump is eager to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin with full diplomatic bells and whistles when the two are in Germany for a multinational summit next month. But the idea is exposing deep divisions within the administration on the best way to approach Moscow in the midst of an ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. elections. 

Many administration officials believe the U.S. needs to maintain its distance from Russia at such a sensitive time — and interact only with great caution. 

But Trump and some others within his administration have been pressing for a full bilateral meeting. He’s calling for media access and all the typical protocol associated with such sessions, even as officials within the State Department and National Security Council urge more restraint, according to a current and a former administration official.

You know one would expect that a person under investigation for possibly colluding with the Russians to hijack an election, would avoid the leader of Russia like the plague, if for no other reason than simply the optics of such a meeting.

But Donald Trump's arrogance and ego simply will not allow him to recognize that this could backfire on him and only add fuel to the ongoing investigations.

Or...it could simply be that Trump is being summoned by his master who wants to demonstrate his dominance over the president of the United States, and Trump is simply too weak and compromised to resist.

    Trump truly is the worst human America could have representing them. Perhaps Putin will slip something in Trump's water while meeting with him - like he has does to his fellow Russian enemies - killing them!

    If I were Trump, I'd be very careful in the type of support he provides the former KGB guy - who is our enemy!

    1. Putin would be stupid to eliminate Trump. He doesn't have the hold on Pence that he has on Trump. Plus Trump is so easily manipulated. Trump is a man-baby with a big mouth. Putin will get everything he wants from Trump for nothing but a few words of flattery.

    Oh, Putin will be just dee-lighted to lord it over Donald the Village Idiot in Germany of all places- it'll give him a chance to impress Angela with his he-man potency.

    No amount of pomp and ceremony and bells and whistles is going to make Donald Trump look like any kind of statesman. Putin will have a ball exposing his weakness and stupidity, in fact if you listen carefully you may hear him cackling in anticipation...

    I've almost completely given up news both national and local. There is no investigative journalism, just lather rinse repeat what they're told to say. We are so screwed, and I'm a normally positive person! Sure do appreciate your blog, Gryph.

  8. The CIA needs to replace Trump's lapel flag pin with a bug and record all of his conversations with any of the Russians.

    "“I can go back right after this conversation and take the investigation over. Although I think everybody’s learning there’s not really MUCH there because there’s no collusion—which is what I had said several months ago, I hadn’t seen any evidence.”
    "“I temporarily stepped aside, just to make sure there was no issue at all, just to give everybody assurance there was no ethical issues at all,” Nunes said. “That is not withdrawing, that is not recusing myself from an investigation.”But I know that I’ve been telling the truth the entire time, YOU can’t go back and find anything that I’ve MI$LED you on.”
    WTF?
    WE SURE GONNA TRY A$$HOLE!
