Trump Thanks Putin For Praising Him

Politico reports:

President Donald Trump spoke by phone with President Vladimir Putin of Russia on Thursday, talking about how they can work together to resolve the situation involving North Korea’s nuclear program, the White House said.

Trump also used the call to thank Putin for “acknowledging America’s strong economic performance in his annual press conference,” according to a White House read out of the call.

The leaders talked for about 10 minutes, and national security adviser H.R. McMaster didn’t participate in the call, a White House official said. The call offered fresh evidence that Trump will continue to work with Putin, despite potential political liabilities.

    It’s either work with Putin or the world sees THE PEE TAPE!

    Yes, I’m sure every other U.S. president has pined away for kudos from russia. What a fucking dolt.

    I guess Trump does have some loyalty after all. Once he’s bought he stays bought.

  • AJ Drew

    Yeah, but, did Putin wish DT a Merry Christmas?

    • Yes, because it’s legal to say “Merry Christmas” again, haven’t you heard? :p

      • AJ Drew

        aha, Winning!

  • boobert

    I can’t see how anyone can deny that there’s some kind of unhealthy relationship here. Everyone in this administration has some connection to russia. Its worse than six degrees of kevin bacon.

    • Frostbite

      One degree to Putin?

    • Rambie

      The unhealthy mental state of Trump that is. Trump is so starved for affection he’ll latch on to anyone and anything that appears to supply it.

      Putin is just playing Trump like a fool and bought the GOP’ers to turn a blind eye.

    • Reality.Bites

      Pretty sure I know who the link between Kevin and Trump would be.

  • OdieDenCO

    stroke donny’s ego and he’ll follow you anywhere.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    As far as I can remember, no President went so fucking far to piss off every other leader in the world yet fellate the Russian leader so damn much.

    And yeah, I’m furious that the Turtle isn’t called on the carpet for letting this motherfucker in the White House.

    • Reality.Bites

      Oh come on, who can forget Reagan’s, “Mr. Gorbachov, tear down that wall between us and be mine forever?”

      • Gerry Fisher

        That was a “get a room” moment, wasn’t it?

  • Kruhn

    Good boy! Here’s some borscht! Good doggy!

  • Which is interesting considering how much Trump works to tick off our traditional allies.

    • GayOldLady

      He’s been Putin’s lap dog from the get-go. He despises our allies because Putin despises our allies. Trump’s only mission is to make sure that whatever the U.S. does is favorable to Russia.

      • Hopefully, the UK, Germany, etc. will be forgiving once he’s gone.

        • GayOldLady

          I sure hope so. I heard yesterday and have read previously, that he doesn’t like Angela Merkel. I wonder why? He admires Putin, Turkey’s Erdogan, and China’s Xi Jinping. All strong men in control of totalitarian regimes.

          • David Walker

            Was that the WaPo article? Haven’t read it, but after the interview on Rachel last night, 1) I want to and 2) the fucking moron is even more mentally unstable than I thought. Don’t say anything (about Russia) that will launch his temper. Put any new intelligence about Russia in written form buried in the daily briefing and put it far down in the pile so he won’t read it. We knew we weren’t getting a mental giant, but this is the worst I could have thought.

            HE NEEDS TO GO or he’ll kill us all. He is utterly deranged and no one can speak truth to him or he’ll freak out.

          • GayOldLady

            I’m not sure where I read it David.

    It bears repeating.

    If Russia didn’t conspire with Donny to cheat and sabotage the election, and everyone still accused both parties of conspiracy? Then Donny boy would be merciless and vulgar in his insults towards Russia (“Why would I need Putin’s help? His country’s been a huge failure since he took over!” Etc)

    It hurts his ego to say Russia cheated in the election to help him. But instead of doing the easy Donald thing of insulting Russia…. He doesn’t. Says it’s fake news. Says Hillary was the one conspiring. Says he trusts Putin when he says he didn’t ‘meddle.

    It’s all the proof you need that Russia owns Trump and that they conspired to attack our election.

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      He doesn’t dare bitch talk Putin because Putin’s pretty thin-skinned himself and Don knows it.

      • Rambie

        Birds of a feather

      • tbj5

        That’s never stopped Donny before.

        The only people he doesn’t insult are those he wants to please. Or needs to.

        He certainly doesn’t act like he needs to please any other world leaders besides dictators (that are also Putin’s pals).

        • Skeptical_Inquirer

          I think it’s a combo. He knows Putin can totally drop the pee-pee tape and get the oligarchs & banks to do a number on his real estate business.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    Every single GOP Congress person should be demanded if they too wuv, wuv, wuv Putie poo as much as Donnie does. No fucking way should the people trying so hard to ignore this get off. Hell, every single one of them should be given a Hillary Benghazi type hearing asking if they knew anything and why they failed to act.

    Treasonous blackmailed bankrupt dotard says what?

    Lock him up in the traitor’s dungeon!

  • worstcultever

    Let’s remember – our country was attacked – cyber-invaded – overtaken – and still is – by Russia, and the so-called patriotic, flag-waving repukes have done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in response. NOTHING.

    • Karl Dubhe 2

      I think there might be a cadre of rich billionaires who are also a part of that attack. People who also hate democracy, because they don’t like to pay any taxes; at all, really. (But they are willing to pay for the national defense, and to put down any social unrest) Some might call them the Koch brothers…

    Putin, nothing would destabilize the West more than the kompromat you have on Donny. Release the tapes!

    Wow! Quelle surprise! Tweedle Dee and Twiddle Dumb congratulating each other in their mutual admiration society.

  • TexasBoy

    Putin has trained him well.

    1. Deflect from the truth…Example: “But her Emails!”
    2. Ridicule those that disagree. Example: The video mimicking disabled reporter.
    3. Control the media. Example: Demanding CNN fire anti-Trump reporters
    4. Limit access to news. Example: Net Neutrality ruling.

    Trump has, with Putin’s help, turned us into Russia and we are no longer a free nation.

    Thank you, Sir. May I have some more, Sir?

  • Uncle Mark

    I’m sure Putin was thanking the Fucking Moron for not enforcing the further sanctions that Congress voted for to punish Putin (unenforced since October 1st). I wonder if Trump selectively ignores the intelligence from the CIA that suggests that the Russians have been helping the North Koreans develop (if not sell them) ICBMs? It’s rather interesting how the latest N Korean missile looks like a Russian SS-18.

    While the Fucking Moron praises Putin, he is setting up a war that will destroy the Koreas, possibly kill thousands of Americans & Japanese, damage US-China relations, and possibly make the US a pariah. It’s all a win-win for Putin.

  • JWC

    Ah isn’t that cute Doony was havng a wee “boo hoo” moment and Uncle Vlad told him it was all right and he was a Good Boi

  • Halou

    So Putin called his American ally to back off from making war against his North Korean ally, and in order to soften Trump up for being told what to do Putin strokes his ego for a few minutes.

    I guess we should be grateful that at least somebody is trying to avert a nuclear war. But to think that America’s president is so easily manipulated… What else can he be made to do or, just as importantly, to not do?

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    So basically, if Lil’ Kim calls Dotard and strokes his ego, all will be good. Seriously, that’s all it takes. Fake Jeebus. smh

  • JCF

    Does anyone else suspect that Charles Manson could have died a free man, IF ONLY he’d sent Drumpf a fan letter?

  • EdA

    If I were Putin, I too would give Benedict Trump a warm “Attaboy. Keep up the good work” while thinking — and not too subtly — what a great return on his investment he had made.
    And the John Birch Society forebears of the Teatotalitarian Party must be spinning like gyroscopes in their graves, as well as Ronald Rotten.
