Donald Trump, upon meeting Vladimir Putin: ‘It’s an honor to be with you’

Everyone was waiting for it. And it happened. Hours ago, Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump met for the first time (?) and it was just as bad as you would think. The photos, the videos, the handshake, the slow, sinking feeling that America is descending into a far-right wing nationalist state and that Emperor Baby Fists is an ignorant piece of sh-t. It’s all happening. I hope the Deplorables look at these photos and this video and really stop and think for a moment. How is Donald Trump making America great again by looking so f–king weak? Watch how over-eager Trump was when greeting Putin for the first time:

Trump finally found the strong-man daddy of his dreams. “Can we be best friends now?” he whispered to Putin. “Yes. Give me Alaska. Make deal,” Putin says with a smile.

Here’s what actually happened in the formal meeting/photo-op:

“It’s an honor to be with you.” Yep. Most White House sources told reporters off the record that Trump was not going to challenge – or even bring up – the fact that Putin hacked the election. Putin looks strong, and this handshake has been playing very well in Russia, because of course it has. Putin finally “defeated” the West. He finally “won.” He finally made America look like a banana republic. He made us look weak. With Trump’s baby-fisted help.

Also: the protests in Hamburg are so crazy/amazing that now Melania Trump can’t even leave her “guest house.”

    Hoping the deplorables will stop and think for a moment will most likely lead to disappointment.

    • Kitten says:

      I’m not sure Deplorables have the ability to be thoughtful or introspective, that’s the problem.

    • tback says:

      100%. Seeing the deplorables’ blind loyalty helps me understand how Hitler/Nazis were able to create the holocaust. It’s terrifying.

      • doofus says:

        the blind loyalty is the scariest part. I appreciate those who have “seen the light” but…seriously, you couldn’t see the brightness of the light during the campaign, when he showed you who he really was?

        but the loyalists are truly frightening. Drumpf himself could kill and skin their pet in front of them and they’d say “eh, Fluffy deserved it.”

      • Kitten says:

        @Doofus-
        Right. I still don’t truly understand how they didn’t see this coming, but I suppose if you never really had any interest in politics and don’t understand much about how politics work, you could make the grave mistake of thinking that a tough businessman might make a decent president…

        (Sigh. It’s hard for me to be generous to these people at this point.)

        But yeah, it’s the sheeple that still support him that truly terrify the shit out of me. They are very clearly brainwashed.

    • Jerusha says:

      The Deplorables don’t even care about this, because they’re WINNING, Tiger’s Blood!!

    • Lightpurple says:

      The Deplorables I know on Facebook have decided that the biggest threat to us right now is Linda Sarsour and are demanding her immediate deportation back to Palestine. They want to deport an American citizen, born in Brooklyn, to a country that really doesn’t exist.

  2. Megan says:

    Yesterday a guest on NPR said that in order to win Putin’s respect Trump needed to confront him. Putin likes men with balls. Trump obviously has none.

    • AnnaKist says:

      Yep. Putin knows what a weak, stupid, egotistical wanker Trump is, and those types are easily manipulated. NoNuts Trump is Putin’s puppet.

  3. Surely Wolfbeak says:

    I can’t.

    • wolfpup says:

      Have you watched Angela Merkel work the room, this morning? In a sea of dark suits, and one red tie – Donald was nearly submissive. He gave 50 million dollars to women around the world – of course, he credited his daughter, Canada gave 20 million and didn’t need to credit a soul, other than good sense. When Angela called the room to order, she had to call her friends, the Chinese whose nameplate was sitting next to her. It’s really fascinating to watch these people’s sense of self-importance, and the way that they treat their aides when they think that no one is looking.

      A little advice – Macron put your chest bone (your heart) to the sun – so what if there are people who criticize you because you chose an older woman to be your true love (like old ladies are simply witches…) Good job, Canada. Angela put her job on the line to feed refugees. At least everyone knows that she has good character. If I had blue eyes and blond hair (or dishwater, as they say) – if I were German I would live there. I hope the nightmare will stop. Let’s all admire Putin’s chest and Donald’s comb-over, and perhaps we can have peace in the world. Bring Angela back, please German people! She knows when a good eye-roll is in order – and it is hilarious watching Donald try and flirt with her, as though she were a woman who was subject to a man’s admiration.

  4. Sullivan says:

    Geez, this is all so heartbreaking.

  5. minx says:

    Sure, Trump treats Putin with respect he doesn’t show towards the American people. I feel like throwing up.

    • Kitten says:

      This completely. The shame and embarrassment is never-ending.

    • Giddy says:

      Also, with the respect tha he hasn’t shown any other world leader.

    • Esmom says:

      I know, my skin is crawling. I really am starting to feel like life has turned into dystopian fiction.

      • Indiana Joanna says:

        Hi, Esmom.

        Their “first” meeting. Right.

        Yes, Putin’s boytoy bows and scrapes because Russian banks (aka Putin) own all all of Trumps loans. That Putin is a wee glassy foreheaded fellow who has all the dirt on baby fists is also disturbing. Our emperor will sell the US to anybody who keeps giving him and his despicable family money. I have no doubt the baby fist clan colluded with Russian hackers.

      • wolfpup says:

        It’s obvious. The question is, will our country be willing to destabilize itself in order to put itself back on the right track? Is our country strong enough – or is this another civil war, that quite frankly, we are not stupid enough to fight. So what if there is President Pence – then Americans can vote again, over the issues that divide us, without a crazed cheeto reality star man, who makes the poor feel like that everything will be okay, if they vote for him, while he just sees them and their votes as another opportunity to transfer wealth to the oligarchs, from the poorest among us. The real question is, can we afford to have a man like Trump as president of such a powerful country? This is our home.

  6. Avery says:

    This is so depressing.

    • wolfpup says:

      It is! Take a break, come up for air when you are ready, and we’ll see you then, and perhaps go on a break ourself, after you return. Honestly, this is toxic! Take a bath, watch a comedian – go to the park – hug a child. Let love come from you – that is the real prize – it is not what others give back.

  7. Jenns says:

    Their meeting is still going on. Was scheduled for 30 minutes, but it now at the 1 1/2 hour mark.

    I’m sure Trump’s boss is going over everything he wants in fine detail.

  8. Cran says:

    The White House couldn’t even handle the travel arrangements. They waited so long there were no hotel rooms available. All the luxury rooms were fully booked. They are staying at a government guesthouse. Melania was unable to join planner tours for spouses because of the G20 protest crowds.

  9. Jerusha says:

    “It’s an honor to meet you,”(Please don’t release that tape, please don’t release that tape, please don’t ….)

  10. Barbs441 says:

    Deplorables are brain dead! IF you ask them what they think they will say its great that Trump is reaching out to Putin

  11. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    All I see is Alec Baldwin when he talks.

  12. Persistent Cat says:

    Alec Baldwin playing Trump was so spot on when he said he always sits as if he’s on the toilet.

  13. Ruyana says:

    Lord help us! We have Presidunce Cringeworthy………

  14. KLO says:

    It is no use being an asshole to Putin in a simple courtesy meeting.

    Trump already told Russia to stop destabilizing their neighbouring regions and Syria just this week in Poland.

    Putin loves and needs adoration and “friendship” just as badly as Trump. No use pissing him off before discussing stuff.

    • Kitten says:

      Nope.

      The primary concern of an American President is not to worry about “pissing off” a world leader who brazenly manipulated our election. His primary responsibility is to the American people and 45 owes it to us to take a hard line against Putin and convey a strong message that meddling in our elections is unacceptable. He should be standing strong in defense of our democratic institutions, not acting like a 13-year-old at a Bieber concert.

      Additionally, Obama never licked Putin’s balls, and nothing happened except Putin talked a bunch of shit. We don’t need to be scared shitless of Putin, we need to stand up to him.
      But that will never happen with the petty, whiny Toddler-in-Chief.

      Once again, he proves that his Daddy is more important than the Americans he represents.

    • minx says:

      I would expect Trump to be civil and that’s it. No “It’s an honor” B.S., because that MF Putin interfered with the integrity of our election.

      • KLO says:

        Would it have been better if he said that it is a “pleasure” to meet him? hihi.

        Yes, I get what you are saying, very well. Since I live in a formerly Russian-occupied country that is constantly targeted by Putins machinations.

        I was just stating my views about the current meeting between those specific people.

        Ronald Reagan, who dealt very well with Russia in my opinion and from the point of view of the countries that actually KNOW what it REALLY means to be bullied by Russia, also took a mostly friendly stance in his dealings with the soviet leaders. It did not mean he was their lapdog by any measure, the opposite in fact was true.

  15. B n A fn says:

    In picture #5, forty five looks like an old man who has no idea where he is or why is he there. “Who an I, where am I”, lol.

  16. Franny says:

    Hackers have been trying to break into US nuclear plants. Since the US has done nothing to punish Russia, they will keep pushing the boundaries. Why stop with one election? I wonder if the Trumpanzees would take Russia’s interference seriously if it affected them directly.

  17. Shirurusu says:

    The most ick-worthy romance of the century

  18. AnnaKist says:

    What a grovelling, snivelling shit Trump is. Putin is laughing up his sleeve at the Trump’s anticipation to get on his knees…

  19. J says:

    Are those photos being uploaded to meme sites yet?

    I.Want.To.Cry.

  21. SoulSPA says:

    Drumpft has sealed and basically approved with a handshake the escalation of the Cold War. Showed that no matter what the Russian govt does, it will be ok with no repercussions. In my view, Drumpf’s foreign visits are business meetings for him and his rich supporters’ gain. 45 and his administration will be the downfall of the US if things don’t change soon. I am sorry for the US and the world. But I still have hope. I will not loose hope. I refuse to loose hope.

    • No Dignity in that says:

      De-escaltion of the cold war it was.

      • SoulSPA says:

        The Cold War has been still happening after the fall of the Iron Curtain even though the architecture of the international system has changed since then. And with the ever growing development of technology and that of the role of non-state actors, particularly those involved in technology as well as conventional warfare.

  22. No Dignity in that says:

    Implying that the USA looked weak because Trump met Putin is ridiculous. Some people got caught up in all that media bias and can’t even see that leaders of nations meet all the time. Even when they are on not-so-good terms.

    • KLO says:

      Your comment is on point. I dont know what the big deal is either. Should Trump kick him in the shins? I dont know what you all expect.

      Yeah, Obama gave Putin a few photogenic staredowns in his day but do we need a political soap opera or actual solutions to real problems?

    • B n A fn says:

      He not only looks weak, he is weak. Thank God the majority of the people are not supporting 45. Forty five approval is about 36%, the other 60% are the ones who are making USA strong. Btw, Putin told 45 to go pound sand and come back when he has proof that Russia interfered in our election. Yesterday the orange one say he was not clear who interfered in our election. He will not accept it was Russia, as told to him by all our intelligence agencies. It could be anyone according to 45, it could be his grandmother or grandfather, or the fat 400lbs guy in jersey, I guess that’s Chris Christie who interfered in our election. Now Putin is saying if you cannot believe your intelligences why should I confess.

    • Rapunzel says:

      It doesn’t look weak that Trump met with Russia. It looks weak that he met with them without, apparently, trusting US intelligence on Russia’s hacking. It looks weak that instead of being simply cordial, he grins like a loon and says he’s “honored to be with” the man US intelligence says worked to undermine our democracy. It looks weak that Putin, the man US intelligence says is sabotaging America, is the one man Trump never insults. It looks weak that in speaking Trump, Mr. “America first,” mentioned Russia before America when discussing positive outcomes from the meeting.

      And it looks shady as f@ck that this meeting was virtually private, went extra long, has contradictory statements about it, and is occurring while the US IC is investigating Trump, his campaign and Russia for collusion, obstruction, and election interference.

      Anyone who thinks this is normal needs to get their head out of their ass and have it examined.

      Btw, I address this to nobody in particular. Just trying to educate.

      • KLO says:

        @Rapunzel I appreciate your points, it was a good read.

        To me it reads like Trump is using pointers from the book “How to win friends and influence people” with Putin, like:

        1) never criticize
        2) always point out what the other person acquires from the deal

        etc etc

        It is fun to watch.

    • jwoolman says:

      You’re right, but Trump saying that it was an honor to meet Putin was downright weird. This is the guy trying his best to sabotage our elections and who knows what else. It’s not an honor to meet him. It may be a duty, but definitely not an honor. That’s probably what is bothering people.

      If Trump had a clue, he would have figured out something more neutral to say that wouldn’t make him look like a fanboy. Maybe his staff made suggestions but he forgot them. Trump really seems very socially inept and clueless about how things look to other people. It’s a handicap.

      Gotta respect Putin for avoiding the Trump monster handshake, though. Don’t know if Putin has a special trick or if Trump was so awed that he didn’t do his usual power move. Or did the French guy convince him to give that up and shake hands like a normal person?

      • SoulSPA says:

        IIRC Putin is very skilled in some sort of self-defence sport as per his former training as intelligence officer. Plus, Putin looks in a much better physical shape than Drumpf. Imagine him wresting Drumpf in case that Baby Fists had tried to showcase his handshaking skills. The meme of the century.

  23. KLO says:

    THanks Jerusha!

  24. Jenny says:

    It’s probably childish of me but the part that I was most interested in was the handshake. I’ve been waiting for it, and was surprised he didn’t jerk Putin’s arm around like he usually does with other world leaders. The young turks did a funny story about how Trump shakes hands here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYqLxQW8c3g&t=334s

    I especially cringed at the way Trump jerked around his pick for the supreme court at about 6:08 in the video.

    • KLO says:

      Yes Jenny I noticed it too. And when they were sitting down he let Putin have the upper hand.
      Trump definitely has a strategy with him.
      He is purposely trying to throw him off with the friendliness. And the pat on the back was a definitive domineering move, I could see Putin squirm while he was doing it. He was uncomfortable haha.

      • why? says:

        Trump doesn’t have a strategy with Putin. He is the puppet and Putin is the puppetmaster.

  25. why? says:

    Tillerson is putting a massive spin on Trump’s meeting with Putin. He claimed that Trump talked to Putin about the election interference, a ceasefire in Syria, and Ukraine and that the meeting lasted longer than what was expected(they told people 30 minutes, but spent 2 hours). Tillerson and Putin are playing the press. It is being reported that they didn’t allow any notetakers into the meeting, claiming that it was because they didn’t want anything that they discussed to get out. They didn’t want any notetakers because they were going to flat out lie about what happened in the meeting and they didn’t want to have evidence to contradict their lie.

    How long after this meeting will Trump lift the sanctions on Russia?

    Did the meeting last 2 hours because Trump was trying to negotiate for that “embarrassing” tape?

    • Jerusha says:

      trump’s discussion with putin regarding Russia’s election hacking, “You’ve got everything set up for 2018, right? For 2020? Great! Thanks, vlad.”

    • Ashamed 2 b a FL Girl says:

      Also, they had to put everything into bullet points and drawings so baby fists could understand exactly what his instructions are.

  26. Guest says:

    Did anyone see pic of Ivanka, unelected and unqualified sitting in for her father at G-20 summit?

    • Jerusha says:

      Yes, and all the comments. I made a few comments myself that were appropriate to the matter. Unelected, unqualifed, unfreakingbelievable.

      • B n A fn says:

        Are you talking about the father? If so, you are right. He was not elected by the majority of the voters, he was 3 million short. But thanks to Putin and the electoral college, here we are. Heaven help us.

      • B n A fn says:

        Btw, Tillerson is a trator to this country. They are both selling out for money and oil.

      • Jerusha says:

        @ B n A fn. the statement fits both of those grifters. One of the waiters would have been more qualified, imo.

  27. Jerusha says:

    Did anyone hear the statement pootie just made? In private donnie is not at all like what we see on tv. Well, that reassures me!! trump 2020! Already endorsed by vlad the killer.

  28. Bobbysue says:

    And as the master rubbed his almost-bald dome, he said, “What a fine head of hair you have! Man oh man, I wish I had a head of hair like yours, Donnie. Strawberry blond, is that right?”. And The Donald went, “Te-he-he. Yes, Komrade. Thank you. You can pull on it. It’s all my very own. See?” “I will do that later,” said the sly one, as he thought to himself, “Eggs-sealant eeeg-it. I will keep his putrid secrets for now.”
