    Default Who is Trump's Russian Handler?

    On a daily basis, who is it that communicates Putin's wishes/demands to Trump?

    Who is it that meets out Trump's rewards and/or reminds him of his 'liabilities'?
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I bet one of your agencies knows, but him being a virtual Emperor and as CinC their direct boss theres nothing they can do about it as long as the GOP doesn't want to know.

    I think it shifts as they get caught out and sacked. Some think it’s Melania but that seems a little far fetched. He does have the red phone on his desk. Could it be Vlad himself?

    What I find remarkable is that I think the president probably has one.

    Don't be silly. Whatever they have on him, and I expect it is financial leverage, he knows what he has to do and he does it poorly. That, too, is part of the plan. Putin doesn't want efficiency. He wants the same chaos and dysfunction that Trump brings naturally to the White House.

    Putin has somehow let Trump know that he's got something on him. Sex tapes or financial blackmail, we don't know, but anyone with half a brain can see that this is the reason that Trump refuses to say anything against Putin and Russia.

    Very true. But there would have to be some control in case he should become unable to provide even that.

    No doubt. He's watching the incremental demise of our democratic institutions and getting a pathetically manipulable and clueless dupe for a U.S. president, whether he's actually pulling trmp's strings or just watching the show.
    I don't care to know what the tough do when the going gets tough.

    I am interested in what the enlightened do.

    He's laughing his ass off! Wouldn't you in his position? We are doing this to ourselves and all he needs to do is start an internet whisper campaign.

    Doesn't Putin feed Russian Reds a similar diet to what Trump feeds ours? So he gives Trump the how-to, if not the stuff itself, in Trump-digestible dribs and drabs, and lets him believe he's steering the ship.

    It may not bring quick and decisive victory, but you have to admire the subtlety. A faux United States would in many ways be better than a defeated one.

    Putin to Trump, then Trump to Kelly! Follow the dots! Heck, other than kissing Putin's butt, what has Trump done other than protect Putin at every level?

    Maybe Putin had a microchip installed. One of those hookers could have been a brain surgeon.

    Nope. Who’s on first base. What’s on second.

    Doesn't like his fellow citizens, doesn't like democracy, would prefer America ruled by the leader of a hostile foreign power. The guy's not exactly a patriot, is he?

    I'd fire everyone of you. Low IQ and useless My shoes are bigly and designed to kick a$$, the high polish aids in extraction.

    Seriously, why are you people so dense? Jokes fly over your head, sarcasm turns you transparent. We're all here to have fun and pass the time of day, nothing any of us say will make a difference. Rather then respond with humor you digress to blathering idiots.

    There are times I respond with factual links to thoughtfully redirect you but for the most part I thought we were all having fun. Stop taking this place so seriously, lots can be learned, you really need to adjust your attitude.

    I think you're a great bunch of guys and enjoy our interaction, many things are brought to my attention I never would have heard, others are a joke. Such is life. I'm sorry we don't see this place in the same light.

    The distinguishing characteristic of a joke is that it's funny. Try to keep that in mind.
