My first thought was "we'll see a bump in trump's abysmal 35% approval rating".

My second thought was "hmmmmmm"....

In a few weeks will wikileaks publish the transcripts of the trump associates conversations with the Russians? The Republicans emails, that were never hacked by the way, in all there unadulterated glory?

You're not suggesting... But that was a work of fiction. Nobody would gin up a war just to distract...

DG, you are soooo cynical. I could practically see the tears streaming down Trump's face as he used his really best words (some even with two syllables).

I think in this case, "Wag the Dog".

It is Putin wagging the dog And the dog getting wagged by Putin is Trump.

I am waiting for the greatest deal maker (real estte Donny) to accept a deal from Putin. Give Putin Ukraine and he could do something about Assad. (but not give up his naval base in Syria).

It is going to be Lets make a deal.

If you do not think it is possible for Putin to provide Sarin to Assad to explicitly hit his citizens with it. Trump makes a tough guy response of 60 Tomahawks at a secondary air field that Trump alerts Putin of his strike. Putin tells Assad and puts up cardboard cutouts of aircraft to be hit.

As it is, "Let's make a deal" as Trump replaces Monty. It all helps with the Russia investigations, right?

In all of this, something has to be done. All this had to be stressful for Trump. Mad
DOg mathis making the call and Trump having to make an appearance using that weakling teleprompter. Where the hell is Jerrod. He could have took care of this so Trump could enjoy his stress free Golf outing.

Just unfair, It is all Obama's fault, or HRC, or Susan Rice and Nancy Pelosi. naturally, harry Reid and and

What is left of liberals at MSNBC after the FOX Sex harassment Refugees were let in.

If there was collision with Russia before, it continues in this "encounter." This is a big Con to allow Trump seem strong against Putin. Putin rattles his saber, Trump barks back, all the while knowing that they will approach the brink, agree to meet & discuss, then U.S., to be "diplomatic," drops the sanctions, and all is hunky dory. Everybody is being played. People say Trump is an idiot, but aware the lifelong grifter who has never spent a day in jail. He may be ignorant, but unindicted...

I noticed a clip from "Wag The Dog" featured prominently in a segment on AM Joy today, also.
Trump is a moron, but he did learn PR from Roy Cohn, so I don't put much in the way of nefarious fuckery past him.
