Trump Invites Putin

An eloquent president stumbles through an incoherent set of comments before the White House Easter Egg Roll. Yet, he didn't seem to stumble related to Russia media reports he invited Putin to the White House.

 Watch a portion of his balcony address.
While Trump seems to have a problem with a reference to the White House he apparently he did a great job on his phone call to his de facto leader: "V Putin." After congratulating Putin on his electoral win (in a sham election), Trump invited the dictator to Washington DC and the White House.

Why?  My thoughts?  

Trump is a money grabber with no secondary emotions. He admires one thing on Earth and that one thing is power backed by money.  Putin is reported to be worth 270 plus billion dollars. Trump is reported to be worth 10 billion (maybe). Putin will serve as President of Russia until Russian oligarchs find him of little to no utility. Conversely, Trump will serve as US President until the nation awakens to his false reality and the dangers he poses to American Democracy.  Basically, Trump will one day (hopefully sooner than later) be out of the Oval Office with unfettered opportunity to advance his quest for money and Putin is a prime conduit for Trump's greed. 

In 2008, The New York Times reported Trump Jr commented about a family business treasure trove in Russia.  
"In terms of high-end product influx into the US, Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets," Donald Trump Jr. said at a New York real-estate conference that year. "Say, in Dubai, and certainly with our project in SoHo, and anywhere in New York. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia."
 My thought? Trump sees his future as a Putin snuggle boy.

MSNBC's Chris Matthews has an opinion on "why".

Trump's Putin Skirt Is Really Showing (What Did He Know And When Did He Know It?)

When has the US Voter and Non-voter handed the rest of us an international embarrassment and neo-political danger? 

Trump's number one former General and "Friend" of Putin Mike Flynn tendered a (forced) resignation last night.  The resignation should be no surprise.  I am seeing and hearing reports DIA officials issued a report to both President Obama and then-President Elect Trump regarding the prospect of Flynn having compromised himself via interaction with a Russia political official. 

Yesterday Trump's number two "presstitute" responded to MSNBC's Steve Kornacki with a comment about Flynn's continued high standing with Trump.  Within hours Flynn's status in the White House fluctuated and changed like an out-of-control roller coaster. The ride finally landed with the Obama hater and Hillary Clinton-hating former general ousted via Trump.  "You're Fired" via the hand in your resignation route.

We offer an MSNBC broadcast segment from early this morning. CAUTION: the segment contains embarrassing backtracking and waffling. 

How could a competent president or for that matter a capable professional person totally ignore such reports? Take it to another level. How could a corporate CEO so ignore reports of a bad apple in the basket? Since we can assume Trump isn't simply stupid, we should assume he ignored the reports for personal gain (and possible reward to Flynn). Of course, we could allow ourselves to lean really deep and consider Trump is so involved with a love of Russia and equally affinity for Putin, he may have been actively involved in Flynn's phone conservation with the Putin deputy. 

As the story unfolded last night on MSNBC and CNN both flooded their broadcast with guest after guest for opinion and perspective.  Of more importance consider the following video and the level of hypocrisy inherent in Trump/Flynn.  LOCK HER UP?

If I may, allow e to post a few MSNBC segments on Flynn and the Trump web into which he surely became entrapped. Recall Flynn's military career came to an end along with that of General McChrystal's release from active duty by President Obama for inappropriate acts (mouthiness and machismo to a reporter). Flynn became an Obama and Clinton hater to the max.
