Russian President Vladimir Putin lavished praise on President Donald Trump, but added that he was sorely disappointed with the U.S. political system, saying that it has been "eating itself up." Speaking in a series of interviews with Russian state television which were included in a documentary released Wednesday, Putin described Trump as a great communicator. "I have no disappointment at all," Putin said when asked about the U.S. president. "Moreover, on a personal level he made a very good impression on me." The two leaders met on the sidelines of international summits last year. Putin praised Trump as a "balanced" man, who easily gets into the gist of various issues and listens to his interlocutor.
He's disappointed with the American political system because it isn't as obedient as Trump and the Russian election system.
Despots value obedience above all else.
Sometimes, you guys guys are just as bad as the paleontologists who find a tooth, then build an entire civilization story around it.
It was always Trump's plan to do away with sanctions. He said so soon after launching his campaign in response to a question from a Russian gun rights advocate with ties to the NRA:
Trump Spoke to a Russian Activist About Ending Sanctions -- Just Weeks After Launching His Campaign
Here's the video of their exchange.
Trump may not be Putin's puppet, but if he tweets like a puppet and does sanctions like a puppet and has secret meetings like a puppet, he just might be a puppet.
No one is sure when the Trump-Putin bromance began, but Trump personally invited Putin to come to the Miss Universe pageant in 2013:
Putin was a no show at the pageant but sent Trump a gift and letter afterward.
"Sometimes, you guys guys are just as bad as the paleontologists who find a tooth, then build an entire civilization story around it."
Yeah, cuz the only evidence we have it a tooth. Pathetic attempt to distract from the obvious truth of their relationship Sheeple. You can deny, deny, deny but too much evidence lies out there making you look foolish. Just accept the truth, Putin owns Trump. You'll get used to it, I doubt Putin is actually using him for sexual satisfaction though if he wanted to I'm quite sure Trump would accommodate him.
Putin described Trump as a great communicator.
Trump the Twitterer communicates like a scornful teenage girl.
And Vlad the vampire loves watching him destabilize America.
I would rather the damn Yankee tweet than do what Johnson, Nixon, Clinton and Obama did- sick the IRS on political opponents.
