We learn today that our star-crossed lovers, Mango and Pooty, can’t quit each other:

Trump had second conversation with Putin in Germany

 “President Donald Trump had another, previously undisclosed conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a summit in Germany this month. White House spokesman Sean Spicer and National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton confirmed that Trump and Putin spoke at a dinner for world leaders and their spouses at the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.

“Anton would not specify the duration of the conversation. But he said the discussion was casual and should not be characterized as a ‘meeting’ or even a less formal, but official, ‘pull-aside.’ ‘A conversation over dessert should not be characterized as a meeting,’ he said. …

“The official stressed that Trump spoke with many leaders over the course of the dinner and said he spoke briefly with Putin, who was seated next to first lady Melania Trump, as the event was concluding. Trump spoke with Putin using Russia’s translator, since the American translator did not speak Russian. But Ian Bremmer, who said he spoke with two people who attended the dinner, said that Trump and Putin spoke for nearly an hour while sitting among the other world leaders and their spouses at the dinner. Bremmer is a foreign affairs columnist and the president of the Eurasia Group, a consulting firm. Attendees described the meeting as startling, said Bremmer, who was told Trump was very animated as he spoke with Putin, often using his hands to gesture.” 

Which of course prompted the Russian Usurper to deny that he was carving the table with their initials:

Note that he says all G 20 leaders in the top tweet…

…and in the bottom tweet they are the top 20 leaders. He cannot let go of not being at the popular kids table in the caf and had to move over next to his crush. According to multiple accounts from our allies, this little dessert talk lasted over an hour, so the description of it being momentary is really bizarre. And I note that only to teens in love does an hour pass as if only minutes.

But no matter how he tries to position it, he broke national-security protocol to meet with Putin with only a Russian translator, who could “misinterpret” Trump’s words to Putin. America has no record of what they said, but Russia does.

This is so not normal.

    Why wouldn’t we have a translator who spoke Russian? That in itself seems planned.

    Still an amateur after all these months.

    Not yet, but they’re working on it.
    I’ll lobby again for the idea of viewing all this shit as part of a coherent strategy, kinda like a gradual drip-feed of novocaine to the public’s (and the media’s) senses.

    Trump isn’t canny enough to originate that as a coherent strategy, but Bannon and Miller et al sure as hell are, and Trump is certainly capable of carrying it out, since it meshes perfectly with his lifelong habits as a firehose of duplicity, mendacity and obfuscation.

    Dismissing it as simple ineptitude, which so many pundits seem happy to do, doesn’t really fit the discernible facts to my eye.
    For one thing, the consistency of the outrageous activity, and particularly the gradually increasing outrageousness especially with All Things Russian, doesn’t fit the profile of simple ineptitude, which tends to exhibit less pattern and more randomness.

      I’m going to have to stick with the malignant moron theory which doesn’t make it less damaging. Trump is vain and shameless conman who has failed upward by persistently promoting, cheating, and lying long enough to make the grab before whatever he touches crumble into a smoking pike of rubble. Distancing himself from the ruin, he claims success and moves on to the next grift to line his pockets and those of his spawn. The Moron-in-Chief has surrounded himself with a clusterfuck of avarice and/or stupid people that are looking to promote themselves or further the agenda that the voices in their heads whisper. It’s obvious that Bannon has a more coherent and comprehensive view of deconstructing the government, and there is no doubt that chaos and circular firing squad suit his purpose, but it’s not like he has much control over this dumpster fire. However as long as it burns, he will take advantage of the opportunities as they present themselves. Meanwhile this shitshow is facilitated and protected by a corrupt GOP that is looking to hang onto power at all costs. The GOP can’t stand the Orange Moron, but they can’t depose him either because their carefully cultivated base of angry idiots will turn on them. It took years to weaponize the base to be fact-resistant and ready to suck up whatever collateral damage is needed to piss off those they hate. And don’t get me started on the media…It couldn’t happen without them.

      A perfect storm of malignant assholes, but hardly the work of evil masterminds.

    but he says they only ‘exchanged pleasantries’ and discussed adoptions, as everyone does over dessert in hamburg, especially when no one else at the table really wanted to talk to him anyway.
