Putin praises Trump, says US political system eating itself

Source: Associated Press




1 hour ago

MOSCOW (AP) — Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has praised U.S. President Donald Trump but expressed disappointment with the U.S. political system, saying it is “eating itself up.”

Asked if he was disappointed with Trump, Putin told state TV that he had no such feeling, adding he had a very positive impression of Trump, whom he met on the sidelines of international summits last year.

Putin praised Trump as a great communicator who is easy to talk to, a man with whom “you can search for a compromise.” Putin added in Wednesday’s remarks he was disappointed in the U.S. political system, which he said has “demonstrated its inefficiency and has been eating itself up.”

Moscow’s hopes for better ties with Washington have been dashed by allegations of collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

1. For some reason...

I dont think Putin has to "serch for a compromise" too hard w/ Donald J Trump.

2. You can't negotiate with a tiger while you're head is in it's mouth !!!



Great line from Churchill that feels applicable here. When your adversaries are complimenting your negotiating skills and positions - it might be time to reconsider both (assuming of course that you're negotiating in good faith which, IMHO, is well beyond the principles of this administration).

5. Vlad just got back from poisoning a couple of people

So he is feeling his polonium, I mean oats.
Cue Sarah Huckster today praising Putin as a strong leader, just like Xi.
Imagine our democracy being dumped on by a Russian autocrat and the POTUS just takes it.
This is not normal.

7. Putin praises his puppet

Putin rigged an election to get his puppet elected and now he praises him. Not surprising.

More evidence that Trump represents Putin's interests in the US.

18. Someone said that you pronounce every letter in Russian.

I tried and just can't do that. I need some vowels.

19. I prefer words with vowels also.

I think the word is pronounced like this: Ot-ve-a-zhis.

I am normally not a 'word nerd', but this a special occasion.

17. No one is listening, Putin. You threatened the world w/ your new ...

nuclear weapons and now you expect us to listen to you anymore? You lied repeatedly and still are.

Never again will the American people trust you again. tRUMP will be ripped out of American history like a root canal, by a vengeful American voting public.
