After stepping in front of Elizabeth II, Trump grovels for Putin

HELSINKI — President Donald Trump told his Russian counterpart that he would discuss "everything from trade to military to missiles to nuclear to China" during their one-on-one meeting at a high-stakes summit in Helsinki Monday.

Not mentioned in his opening remarks during a handshake photo opportunity: Moscow's interference in the 2016 presidential election, a topic Trump had promised to press Russian President Vladimir Putin on after 12 Russian intelligence officers were indicted last week for stealing Democratic campaign emails.

"Getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing," Trump told Putin. "I think the world really wants us to get along."

(snip)

The summit also started nearly an hour late. Putin made Trump wait for him, arriving behind schedule in Helsinki as the two leaders attempted yet another reset of U.S-Russian relations.

1. And if Trump ever shows up late to a meeting with another world leader.

How will that be covered? That he has the upper hand over who he's meeting just because he's late and made them wait?

10. I had been wondering if Putin would make Trump wait.

It's a power thing and he does it intentionally.

11. Yep. He does it with just about everyone.

Personally, I think it’s just rude.

12. Rude is putting it mildly.

If I were to meet Putin, I'd do my best to be just a little bit later than he.

2. Could you give an example of the groveling you speak of,

I haven't seen that, what I witnessed was two world leaders shake hands.

3. Do you agree

That a military alliance between the United States, Eastern Europe and Russia would the most powerful alliance in the world and could change for the better the world structure?

7. Oh my GAWD, He stepped in front of the Queen?

Have you lefties ever listened to how ridiculous you are?

Lefties despise Kings and Queens, we've all already heard how "we must stop Trump who wants to be King"...but how dare he step in front of one.

Winning Mother Fuckers, Winning! This is all lefties have to offer. They are toast, the party is in ruins.

9. One lie just builds upon another.

The video clearly shows the queen motioning Trump in front of her and then she steps around to his right side. Lie number one.

Trump has stated that he will meet with anyone and try to discuss things. He never has high expectations but you never know. So no groveling. Lie number two.

And on and on and on and on. They have become psychopathic liars. What should we expect really? After all, Her survived Bosnian sniper fire!

8. Not a word about...

Poisoned people in London, and other deaths

Crimea

Election interference

Syria

Russian controlled press

or anything else Russia has done

What was the Tangerine Wanker really doing in the private meeting?
