What Could Go Wrong?

Axios morning email thingie leads with:

President Trump no longer doubts the basic intelligence assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 election — he just seems incapable of taking it seriously, and tells staff that is simply what nations do, several sources close to Trump tell Jonathan Swan, who’s filing from Helsinki.

There is no evidence that could ever change Trump’s mind, the sources said.

Why it matters:

To the extent that Trump does confront Putin over meddling at tomorrow’s summit in Finland with Vladimir Putin — and the president has publicly promised to — it’s not with any genuine seriousness or enthusiasm, the sources say.

It’ll be purely for domestic/media consumption. Trump has signaled as much in the sarcastic way he’s talked about this with the press.

So it’s all Kabuki theater?

…and then hours and hours later:

So it seems to matter enough to him that he blames the Kenyan Usurper, twice!

Axios continues:

A source who’s discussed the matter with Trump tells Swan:

“On election meddling, a big part of it is a refusal to give in to anything that could give the impression that the election outcome resulted from anything besides his skill and success as a candidate.”

“It’s not about Russia. It could be evidence of Chinese or Canadian interference, and it wouldn’t make any difference.”

In Trump’s mind, “he won the election based on political superiority, and no one is going to suggest otherwise.”

So, Narcissism wins again?

In excerpts just posted, Trump told “CBS Evening News” anchor Jeff Glor in an interview in Scotland yesterday that he “hadn’t thought of” asking Putin to extradite Russians indicted by Mueller.

He hadn’t thought of asking for extradition? Jeebus!

“Well, I might,” Trump said. “I hadn’t thought of that. But I certainly, I’ll be asking about it. But again, this was during the Obama administration. They were doing whatever it was during the Obama administration.”

Back to blaming the Kenyan Usurper!

Trump said he has “low expectations” for the summit.

We all do, buddy.

Trump told Glor it’s too early to say whether he will meet one-on-one with Putin, without translators or aides.

No witnesses, capisce? I mean, do YOU invite the press when you have your annual review with your boss and set goals and expectations? I think not!

So he’s going to meet with an avowed enemy of the United States, who literally attacked us in 2016 (Putin directly ordered his underlings on the cyber warfare), with no translators or aides, Comrade Trump has no agenda nor demands, not even to demand that Putin doesn’t do it again?

What could go wrong?

    We’ll never know for sure, but I seriously doubt FatNixon will bring up the interference, meddling, indictments, or extradition with his boss. Deadbeat employees here get fired. Putin uses polonium.

    Putin will come away with reduced/removed sanctions, no extradition of twelve key hackers, Trump’s promise to break NATO, and Trump’s tiny shriveled balls.

    It’s a win for him, except maybe that last one.

    Comrade Stupid can get his boss Mr. Putin to sign a worthless piece of paper saying that the Russians will work toward not interfering in future presidential elections on the North American Continent. Then he can come back to DC waiving the paper around like Neville Chamberlain and declare his trip a rousing success.
