Kremlin questions language of 'unusual' Trump letter to Erdogan

Source: Reuters

MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin on Thursday questioned the tone of a letter sent by U.S. President Donald Trump to his Turkish counterpart Tayyip Erdogan, which it called highly unusual for correspondence between heads of state.

The White House on Wednesday released the Oct. 9 letter, in which Trump urged Erdogan: “Don’t be a tough guy” and “Don’t be a fool!”

“You don’t often encounter such language in correspondence between heads of state. It’s a highly unusual letter,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call.

3. At some point Putin will pull the Pontius Pilate

and start washing the turd off his hands.

Having a useful idiot is one thing, but an embarrassing one is quite another. Pootie don't like being embarrassed (poor grammar intended).

Soon the TRUMP STINK will be too much, even for Putin.

14. I don't think PUtin is ready to discard his rusty tool yet.

If the rusty bent tool gets SCOTUS to violate the constitution, PUtin will steal the next election (probably aided by SA) so drumpf can destroy NATO and remove all sanctions. After that, I'd say it's pretty much certain PUtin will out him and Lyndsey and RNC to create even more chaos and destruction for our country.

11. My interpretation too.

This is more than just a snide comment. Russian TV right now is "joyous", "celebratory" and dismayed by everything that is happening in Syria. That is not what Trump was expecting to hear from Russia right now.

Putin is saying to Trump, can you blame Erdogan for what he is doing after such a nasty letter?

12. Erdogan literally threw his letter away!

I heard he read it, balled it up and threw it in the trash. tRump is a little bitch and he knows it. Erdogan totally
played him for the fool he is.

because everything he does is unusual (read: bizarre and twisted)

18. The ink wasn't dry on that letter....

when Trump "released" it to the press. Trump actually thinks we're stupid enough to believe he sent that to Erdagon right after his infamous phone call. Well, his base is stupid enough, but no one with an IQ higher than their shoe size would believe it.

24. That's One of the Tells

that Trump is operating on a rather low developmental level. He's always talking about "liking" and "not liking" people and entities. Adults don't really talk that way much. Certainly we don't use it at work in professional matters. "Yes, I'll come to the birthday lunch for Karen, I like her." "Count me out of the birthday cake in the conference room, I don't like Dave." Yeah, no.
