WaPo: Trump has gone to extraordinary lengths to hide details of talks with Putin, such as taking interpreter’s notes, U.S. officials say

yeah

they usually don't say anything overt about trump anymore

nowadays they wait for the 3% of threads about what somebody said or did that didn't actually turn out to be racism or sexism, and then fall all over themselves to talk about PC culture and the ERA hivemind before disappearing
I wonder how the old place is taking this news...

First off Pence would have to deal with both the transition and a Democrat House of Representatives, he wouldn't be able to get anything done by the end of the term which would be less than 2 years

Second I'm tired of hearing Pence would be worse, Trump has caused the largest shutdown in our governments history, mismanaged natural disasters worse then any president, and has done a huge job in normalizing racism.
A -fucking -men ("Amen" to be clear), Pence would have just been another shit stain republican president like the rest of them. He wouldn't have disrupted global markets, antagonized a radical nuclear power, undermined decades long/essential alliances and permanently (don't kid yourself) damaged the United States on the international stage. Trump was right, he's accomplished more than any other president ever

Mr. Trump are you a Russian asset?

Well I like to think that I'm an asset to all of my friends. And I consider Putin to be a friend. So sure, you could say I'm an asset to Putin. I have lots of friends and I'm an asset to a lot of people. No one is more of an asset than me.

The hammer needs to fall on this person and his associates, whether he's in office or out of office. I really hope that if nothing comes of the current investigations, a future Dem president won't be a weak and allow these people to get away with this without severe consequences.

It's bonkers that the POTUS being an asset for a hostile foreign power is an undeniable open secret.

Forget Trump facing justice, Every single Republican politician knows he's guilty of treason, and they don't give a shit. And most of them will still have power long after Trump's gone.
In the realities that make more sense than this shit one, this headline combined with the NYT fbi cointel would be the biggest thing there is. Nothing short of a 9/11 should bump it off the press. In 100 years, these headlines will be the only thing remembered. But in the here and now, we go with a shrug and "hurry it up" attitude due to our conditioning.

It's insane. We're insane. What the hell am I going to tell my grandkids about this time period that ultra fucked them. Ya'll know they're going to blame us. Then we'll deflect and blame the boomers and the boomers will remain dead, so thus we completely own that shitbag.

How is this legal? I mean at the least there should be 1 dude who records this shit for preservation of government meetings regardless of politics.

Can you imagine Obama having a 1 on 1 with Castro for example (since he is one of the ultimate boogy mans even over putin) and telling his cabinet it's classified for everyone and it will not go on any records? Oh you bet these spineless fuck would be calling treason. 100%.

This guy needs to be in jail once he leaves. No presidential pardon either.

If the president does it, that means it's not illegal

This is such a crazy shirt. But this is perfectly exemplified by The Boss in MGS3 how she says the times dictate the enemy and all that. I’d have to read it again for the full effect but the concept of the times is very interesting.

Do these idiots not remember the Cold War? Rather side with their opponents rather than their countrymen?

What's amazing is they were alive during the Cold War, by the looks of them.

Like true conservatism, the passing by of just a year or so flushes out their memory like nothing else can.

It's obvious that Trump is getting orders from SOMEONE. The dude is thick as pigshit and yet always seems to pull the tactical moves to get himself closer to autocratic status. Russia has been studying US politics for decades.

Nah, they're consistent. They're just tribal shitheels to their core and nothing more, especially when draping themselves in the flag while cursing out the other. Rarely done for altruistic reasons and more just bravado and arrogance.

Regardless of that, things were different when they were young. Soviet Russia was very much a scare of "the left" and a rally around combating socialism by using it as a stick to beat on liberals.
Today, Russia is a mafia run state and a dreamland for white supremacists, anti-LGBT, pro authoritarians preaching to hate <x>, and far right types of all kinds. So basically their favorite people, same as it was decades ago in other countries *cough*pre-revolution Cuba *cough*. So yeah, they're just continuing the trend of Americans supporting far right tyrants. Fuck, we helped install a lot of them and all of this before most of us were born.

Continuing on that high thought, nothing in America's history screams consistent when you match our supposed ideals with our actions. It's why we required a brutal bloody civil war to end slavery instead of just following the principles of "every man is created equal" and all that other freedom shit apologists today still fool themselves into thinking was meant for all people.

So it all makes sense when you boil it down to its core parts - we're tribal creatures and where the tribe goes we go. This happens with quite literally everything so I'm not necessarily saying it's all bad though it typically is; more just that the tribe these guys fervently follow are literal fucking traitors and human cesspools. Deplorables is way too kind of a word.

I wonder what conversations have happened between leaders of the free world. Do you think the likes of May, Macron, Merkel have ever openly discussed things they know or suspect about this Russian coup on America (which is what it is, face it).

It's clear Trump doesn't have a problem lying so it's interesting to me he doesn't just come out and say 'no' he's not a Russian asset.

Just like any and all tweets/comments he makes about Russia always has to end with a tone of positivity it seems to me he just can't say anything negative towards Putin and Russian. Like, he's legit scared of uttering a sentence that denounce Russia in any way.

Yet they're not even doing that. Stocks are down. Thanks to the shutdown, 800k+ fed workers and their families won't be spending as much as they otherwise would. That won't be good for the economy.

There never was a valid excuse for propping up Trump. But now, even the pretense of "the economy!" can't shield the stupidity and corruption of those enabling him. I mean, Trump is here to dismantle the best parts of America and inflame its worst. So yeah, his supporters are just plain traitorous shitheads.

During the time he has shut things down, I really hope nothing has snuck into the borders like WMAs or plane jacking shit bags.

GOP: "This is fine."
State of the Union @CNNSotu

“This is not a traditional president. He has unorthodox means but he is President of the United States. It’s pretty much up to him in terms of who he wants to read into his conversations with world leaders,” GOP @SenRonJohnson says. #CNNSOTU https://trib.al/1KB4b7p

A Russian billionaire is giving Trump marching orders on when to declare a state of emergency.

The billionaire goes on to say it would create a dangerous precedent but the guy did tweet to remove John Brennan's security clearance and 2 days later it happened.

Apparently he's just a troll. I'll bet he's taking these "suggestions" from Russian state media.

Still doesn't answer the question why Trump is enacting their suggestions.

The thing I wonder about is if trump finally gets exposed as a Russian asset, what then? What do we do with the people that back him no matter what? How do we go back to being a normal functioning society that believes in the laws we write?

You split. The ones that want a King and a racist, Darwinist, xenophobe nation go off and form their own country. The ones that want a functioning democracy where equality doesn't just mean straight, white, Christian people stay in the other. At this point, the gulf between these two sides of America may be unbridgeable.
