President Trump who has been hidden from public view since returning last weekend from a divisive international summit is enraged that the Russia cloud still hangs over his presidency and is exasperated that his eldest son and namesake has become engulfed by it, said people who have spoken with him this week.
The disclosure that Trump Jr. met with a Russian attorney, believing he would receive incriminating information about Hillary Clinton as part of the Kremlins effort to boost his fathers candidacy, has set back the administrations faltering agenda and rattled the senior leadership team.

Even supporters of Trump Jr. who believe he faces no legal repercussions privately acknowledged Tuesday that the story is a public relations disaster for him as well as for the White House.

1. "At 10:00 PM tonight, Sean Hannity will lob softballs at my very patriotic son"

Anyone else notice that Don Jr. and Martin Shkreli have the same arrogant, entitled smirk on their faces pretty much 24/7? Not a word has to come out of either of their mouths to clearly pick up what assholes they both must be in person.
