Putin Fan Boy or Just Needy?
May 16, 2017
Just when we think things can’t any stranger, the Donald shows us how wrong we can be. I guess that’s what he brings to the table – outside the box thinking. The box being rational thought. I mean, who would choose to share sensitive, classified, information with an adversary at a public meeting? Well, who other than the Donald.
To be fair, the meeting wasn’t really all that public; the American press was persona non grata, but, no worries, the Russian press was there and has been eager to share photos of Trump gland-handing their diplomats. (I wonder, what other Oval Office photos they have, but are not sharing? Maybe, saving the juicier photos for later. Those frisky Russian do love to build up to a crescendo. So, who knows?)
The White House staff responded to this latest Donald faux pas by phoning in a heads-up to the CIA and NSA. Apparently, the info the Donald shared wasn’t his to share. It came from an ally on the condition that we (Americans, all of us) keep it secret. So, the Donald’s people had to, sort of, apologize: “Sorry about that agent, you know how the president can get – especially around Russians.”
The next morning Trump announced in a press Tweet that he had every right to reveal the information, to whomever he wanted and he was president, so there!
Given recent history, we can now expect Trump to admonish or even fire those staff members who contradicted him before he spoke. (This is like a horribly written “Game of Thrones” – sans the attractive cast.)
After so many pro-Russian moves, it’s obvious Trump truly desires Putin’s approval. But, the reasons why are not so obvious. Is it bromance? Vladimir’s a striking guy and Trump has shown a taste for the east-European look. Additionally, Putin’s enjoys the kind of authoritarian mojo the Donald publicly covets. So, could be.
On the other hand, a bromance requires some personal respect and the Donald seems incapable of respecting others. So, maybe it’s more about desire – desire for what Putin has. Desire for things Trump can’t have, like absolute power and popularity.
Yeah, since the Donald is only the president he can’t have absolute power – try as he might. And for reasons he will never understand his popularity gets worse and worse. The deck is stacked against Trump since he was born in the wrong country. Poor guy can only watch from afar and aspire to Putin like grace. Must be terribly frustrating, having Putin envy.
After one-hundred-eighty-nine post-election days of watching the Donald demonstrate unconditional love for Russia, the republic suggests the Donald renounce his citizenship (who does he think he’s kidding at this point) and follow his dream to mother Russia. We won’t mind – whatever makes the Donald happy.
In Peace and Justice,
