    Looks like Bobbys could be there in Helsinki giving Trump policy and speech advice.

    He is afraid of Putin. That has to be obvious to anyone watching.

    I wonder what financial hold he has over DT? Money is certainly DT's #1 interest. Being POTUS is at best #2.

    Aren't most of our Trump apologists banned? Seems like they were having a group meltdown.

    Today's meeting made it completely obvious that Putin has some sort of hold over Trump & Trump is scared to death.

    Remember Ari Fleischer? Dubya's press secretary? Up until today he has been a Trump apologist.

    And then today he tweeted this:

    "I continue to believe there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. But when Trump so easily and naively accepts Putin's line about not being involved, I can understand why Ds think Putin must have the goods on him."

    Trump apologists inside the WBF Bilge and outside of it are having an extremely bad day

    Someone posted a scenario, I think yesterday, where the real deal on the pee tape is that it turned out to be a snuff film.

    Donald has a history of violence against women, and when the underage prostitute giggled at his 'equipment', he assaulted her and managed to kill her.

    I don't know whether that's true, but it's beginning to seem plausible.


    The man is utterly shameless about insulting absolutely anyone, he feels it is his birthright to cheat anyone out of anything without compunction, he wears his abuse of women (and anybody else) as an accolade, he revels in the power he has to destroy the US Constitution, and has bragged that he could shoot someone in the middle of 5th Ave. and not lose a vote.

    Murdering an underage prostitute because he's impotent/has tiny hands is just about the only thing left that he would even respond to as blackmail.

    I don't buy it. If Putin could ruin him financially, Trump would act exactly as he has acted. Anyway, I've heard very little about Trump being violent to women, other than his ex-wife's claim of marital rape. Can you give me a source for that?

    Another long-time Trump apologist, Newt Gingrich, wrote on Twitter today: "President Trump must clarify his statements in Helsinki on our intelligence system and Putin. It is the most serious mistake of his presidency and must be corrected—-immediately."

    These Trump folks haven't replied because they all think Trump has nothing to apologize for.

    At least a dozen women have claimed that he sexually assaulted them.


    When he grabbed whoever by the p***y, he was committing sexual violence.



    Not only did Ivana claim he'd raped her, she said he beat her and dragged her around the room by her hair.



    Seriously, he steals, cheats, and embezzles for a living, and has for years. It's hard to blackmail someone who doesn't think he's done anything wrong.

    Besides, he has ( had?) attorneys stacked to the rafters who could plead away/negotiate/whatever any sort of financial crimes until he's been dead for 20 years, without his ever seeing the inside of a jail.



    The financial-crimes-as-leverage thing just doesn't seem like he would regard it as a credible threat.


    The phrase 'found in bed with a dead girl or a live boy' seems to start sounding plausible.

    I'm actually worried about Putin. If he's still laughing, as I'm sure he is, he could have a heart attack! On second thought, could Trump be a genius? Was that his plan all along?

    I don't know, Jeff.

    You, being Australian, wouldn't know about Edwin Edwards, a Louisiana politician who famously said "The only way I can lose this election is if I'm caught in bed with either a dead girl or a live boy".


    ____________


    The consensus of opinion is that Putin has something on Trump.

    He seems to be completely comfortable with being a predatory, amoral perpetrator of all sorts of mischief, and one thing we all know about blackmail/extortion is that the victim must be afraid of the consequences of exposure.

    Trump has been exposed as a fraud, a racist, a misogynist, he has no real fear of being exposed as a money-launderer because he is insulated by his money.

    Having chosen that life of crime, he has had plenty of time to prepare for criminal prosecution of financial crimes.

    Even if convicted, he would likely be able to go to country-club-prison or do house arrest due to 'medical issues' instead of general population at federal prison.

    Trump's financial crimes have been committed in a cold-hearted fashion, with malice aforethought, and as such he has inured himself to the possible consequences.


    If he flew into a rage and beat some girl's brains out with a table lamp, he would be terrified. If this were the case, Vlad would own his @$$ outright. That's how those spooks get ya.



    I have seen the images from earlier today, and the guy looks terrified. I mean, a couple of times it looked like he was gonna cry!


    So the question then becomes 'What the heck is he so afraid of?'

    'Found in bed with a dead girl or a live boy' would definitely fill the bill.

    This Trump / Putin private meeting and the subsequent news conference, is a watershed moment in American Politics. If aspects of Trump's presidency looked on the nose before, then multiply this x 4 at least. Domestically people are stunned, aghast etc etc. Trumps international reputation among allies is trashed!
    His only support is shrinking to those among his base who have been thoroughly manipulated during the election campaign by Russian influence and Cambridge Analytica's online manipulation and exploitation of the electoral process. In this meeting, he seems to be playing directly into Putin's hand and has placed himself in an extremely vulnerable position domestically and internationally. Where to from here will be very interesting.
