Yea, the bromance that is Putin-Trump is about to happen and we know who the b*tch is in that relationship. Oh well, we'll see another made for TV moment followed by us getting screwed over by Russia in terms of agreements. That's what happened with NK as we are finding out now and that was small fry according to Trump. If Trump couldn't outdeal Rocket Man, how the heck does he stand a chance with Putin?
...
All Putin has to do is pull out popcorn and tapes and sit back with Trump to watch some B-rated porn from a Russian hotel. Of course, I'm sure Trump won't be shocked and will probably get all excited at the opportunity. After all, the idiot loves himself more than anything.

A good one John. It has been about 18 months of this made for TV POTUS, and I am yet to see anything that he has truly accomplished on his own that benefited the American people or America for that matter. So far if he touches it the end result could be used so some would say to enrich the soil. However we probably all know those that consider him a great leader, but we must remember that unless it is the news from a major broadcaster, not Fox, it's probably not news. It is like the rest of TV it is all a story. Do you think we will look back and ALL of us understand that this whole time in history was just a made for TV story, or will the Trumpets never wake up?

I don't trust Trump or Putin or Merkel or Macron or Trudeau or Clinton. I might have trusted May, except for the fact that she just cut the Brexit deal to Brexit without actually making a Brexit.
.
Your problem, JB, is that you think any of these leaders care about the people they serve more than their own interests. Japanese PM? Maybe. Australian PM? Maybe. Current non-puppet Ukrainian PM? Maybe.
.
I think that since 1970, the U.S. presidents who genuinely cared as much or more about the average Joe as they cared about themselves are limited to 3- Carter (not the most competent, not the luckiest, but genuinely cared for people), Reagan, and Bush II (you might not have agreed with him politically, but everything he did was based on what he genuinely thought was best for people). I almost put Obama on this list, but I actually think that while he thought he was doing the right thing for people, he was also far more concerned with his own legacy and popularity. The three I listed didn't take that into consideration.

Republicans pick up seats in House, 6-12 seats in Senate. President Trump cruises to a 49-state electoral win in 2020. Dims have nobody that can counter the Trump Miracle economy. Not a single one.
Have you "progs" heard that Bill and the Fainting Felon were spotted together at LaGuardia Saturday? That can only mean one thing: she's running!

Hilarious! Just saw a picture of the commie nutbucket Bernie Sanders slobbering into a microphone at the phony Soros-funded riot at the Supreme Court building last night. Some hippie chick over his left shoulder was watching Heap Big Squaw Grey Beaver approaching, and the chick's eyes are as big as saucers! She must have been thinking she'd accidentally stumbled into a remake of "Night of the Living Dead"!

That poor granddaughter. She deserves better than a blithering, rage-blinded, misogynist for a grandfather.

Bernie Sanders........every time I see his name I think of the eunuch hanging his head and meekly backing up as two racist Black women took away his microphone and forced the cancellation of his rally that night.

When you castrate a 400 lb bull, they behave as meekly as Bernie Sanders.

A lot of similarity.

Moz wages are still stagnant which will factor into the mid-term. Also, when was that infrastructure investment supposed to start happening? Still waiting on that. Regardless, you live in some altered reality that doesn’t square with most things.

If you don't have offspring, and I know you don't, you are disqualified from opining on offspring.
One other thing: you can't point out one thing in any of my posts that even remotely resembles hatred. Biting humor, yes, but never hatred. You're getting to be as big a liar as Brummett, RBear, and TimberTopper, ARMNAR. Stick to predicting the future. You're better at that than lying.
