Trump Yuks-It-Up With Buddies From the Kremlin! So Many Pussies!


In the wake of the firing of James Comey, the FBI Director in charge of the investigation of the ties of the White House to Russia, most people would assume that Trump would do everything possible to distance himself and the White House from any involvement with the Russians.  MOST PEOPLE WOULD BE WRONG!!!  The day after the firing of Comey, Trump hosted  Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the White House.  They were joined by the Russian ambassador to America, Sergey Kislyak.  No American reporters were allowed to attend the meeting, but Trump allowed Russian photographers into the Oval Office.  Thus the photos we have of the meeting come from Russia.  Imagine the President of the United States giving preferential treatment to the Russian media!   It is common knowledge, and well documented, that the media in Russia is controlled by Putin.  By limiting media presence in the Oval Office to Russian reporters, Trump was in essence controlling the press and limiting any reporting to favorable images of he and the Russians.

However, it’s the identity of the Russians  that is even more troubling than the fact that American media were not given equal access as the Russian press.  Lavrov and Kislyak are the two people who have had contact with the members of the Trump administration.  Sergey Kislyak is the key figure in the investigation into Trump’s ousted national security adviser, Michael Flynn.  When a reporter asked whether the dismissal has “cast a shadow” over their talks, Lavrov stopped and seemed to look genuinely quizzical when he responded, “Was he fired?” — but then adopted a deadpan tone as he told the reporter, “You are kidding, you are kidding.”  With a theatrical twitch of his head, the Russian diplomat then followed his American counterpart away from the media. The exchange was not included in the State Department’s brief video snippet from the photo-op that it posted to Twitter.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is the person in the Trump administration who had to recuse himself from any investigation into the Trump administration ties to Russia.  At his Jan. 10 Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing, Sessions was asked by Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) what he would do if he learned of any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of the 2016 campaign.  The response of Sessions was:

I’m not aware of any of those activities,” he responded. He added: “I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians.

However that was a lie.  Sessions previously met with Kislyak  on at least two different occasions.  That lie, and Trump’s meeting with Kislyak is especially intolerable as Kislyak has been identified by US intelligence officials to be one of Russia’s top spies and spy recruiters.

 

 

Perhaps the most offensive and illuminating connection between Lavrov and Trump comes from an interview by Christiane Amanpour of Lavrov from October of 2016.  Lavrov was clearly laughing about Trump’s “grabbing pussy” remark.
