The Russians claim that Comrade Trump and Vladimir Putin made some verbal agreements including an extension of the New START and INF agreements and something about Syria. Good news, da?
Except no one in the U.S. government knows what The Russian Usurper and his boss agreed to.
Trump might know what the Russians are talking about, or maybe not. As Fran Lebowitz once quipped, the opposite of talking is not listening; it is waiting.
Does anyone really think that a narcissist like Comrade Trump pays any attention to what anyone else is saying (other than praise for himself)?
So once again, Pravda will be announcing what they agreed to do, and apparently our Enemy of the People (free press) will be breaking the news to the Cabinet on live interview shows, like Mrs. Greenspan did to DNI Dan Coats, who started laughing in shock.
Anyone got some Quatloos riding on how long before Dan Coats is You’re Fired’ed?
UPDATE 1: In Friday’s NYT, GOP congressman Will Hurd has an op-ed titled “Trump Is Being Manipulated by Putin. What Should We Do?”
