Donald Trump is preparing for his meeting with Vladimir Putin by reading "tweet length talking points."

I know I've used this image before, but come on it's so perfect.

US intelligence officials are trying to prepare President Trump for his high-stakes meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin Friday by feeding him information the only way they know how: in bite-size 140-character pieces. 

It’s a well-reported fact that Trump doesn’t read his daily briefings and prefers “killer graphics” like pictures, videos, and charts, or in-person briefings. Trump aides have come up with some creative ways to keep the president focused — such as mentioning his name as frequently as possible in memos — but this latest strategy might be their most desperate one yet. 

According to a report from the Los Angeles Times, Trump aides have prepared “a list of tweet-length sentences that summarize the main points Trump could bring up with Putin” in the hopes that the president absorbs even a little of what he needs to know before sitting down with the canny, and sure to be well-prepared, Russian leader.

So we are sending a mental midget into a meeting with a former Soviet spy who was the master mind behind the hacking of our last election.

Perhaps we ought to just douse Trump in steak sauce as well.

What's more apparently Trump is planning to wing it.

Last week, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said the Trump administration doesn’t have a clear plan for the meeting with Putin. 

“We have no specific agenda,” he said. “It’s whatever the president wants to talk about.”

On the other hand there is no question that Putin will be quite well prepared for this meeting with a list of "suggestions" that Trump can mull over to help build a friendship between Russia and the United States.

And trust that none of those "suggestions" will favor America in any way.

Former spies are convinced that Putin will have little trouble manipulating Trump due to his massive and delicate ego.

The Kremlin has already taken advantage of Trump's refusal to confirm that it was Russia that hacked our last election.

I imagine that Putin is salivating at the prospect of making America's commander-in-chief his bitch for the first time in Russian history.

    “It’s whatever the president wants to talk about.”

    Rex Tillerson will be at this meeting, so OIL will be discussed. I imagine first lady Ivanka will HAVE to be there also, too.

    I miss President Obama more and more each day. It was so wonderful to have an intelligent, compassionate, learned person as president.

    Putin is also worth upwards of $200 Billion Dollars! I'm sure he's going to see Mr. Bankrupt Millionaire as just an idiot pawn who is very much beneath both is wealth and his intelligence.

      Putin doesn't own squat.
      He's a thief. Murderer.
      Even criminals despise him.
      Good luck with all that!

    Hey Asshole (Drumpf)!

    You can't claim Russia was responsible for hacking and then turn around and say, well it happened, but President Obama did nothing about it (also wrong).

    Trump is a fucking asshole.

    IT'S OVER FOLKS, TRUMPSKI GAVE THE RUSKIES THEIR OUT

    THE WORLD HEARD TRUMPSKI,

    LAYOFF THE UN-INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY SONS OF BITCHES



    The spokesman, Dmitry Petrov told Bloomberg News that Trump had highlighted "equally the possibility that it could have been other countries.

    "Please note the nuances," he said.

    Trump's comments, made earlier Thursday at a joint news conference in Warsaw, Poland, alongside Polish President Andrzej Duda, had appeared to undercut the conclusion reached by several US intelligence agencies that Russia was to blame. Russia has consistently denied meddling in last year's election.

    Sarah Palin redux.... The McCain campaign gave sarah a script to memorize when they realized she was dumb as a box of rocks. Trump has the attention span of a 3-year-old. We are in trouble.

    While I knew beforehand that Putin was going to eat Trumplethinskin's lunch, I read the above while shaking my head sadly. We are in a *lot* of trouble because of this mentally compromised man. It will be child's play to Putin. And the saddest thing is, Trumplethinskin will come out of there thinking *he* was the victor!
