Trump & Putin’s Pow-Wow ???? Helsinki Freezes Over ?
President Trump and President Putin solidified their bromance in Helsinki when Trump said he believed Putin was not responsible for hacking and leaking the DNC’s emails & said that Putin “offered to send his team over to help with the investigation. I think that’s an incredible offer.”
“The disagreements between our two countries are well-known and President Putin and I discussed them at length today. But if we're going to solve many of the problems facing our world, then we are going to have to find ways to cooperate in pursuit of shared interests.” pic.twitter.com/avnxW6JhZP

Whether or not there was collusion at the top, we know one thing for sure: Vlad Putin voted Trump.

Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???

Calling @realDonaldTrump performance "disgraceful" or "shameful" as many Democrats are doing is way overreacting, but arguably w/n bounds of partisan rhetorical reason. Calling @POTUS "Imbecilic" or even #TraitorTrump as @JohnBrennan did is totally overboard, excessive & douchey

Trump saying “there was no collusion” while standing next to Putin is a gift to documentary filmmakers for years to come, so there’s that!

This is the weakest moment in the history of the American presidency until whatever Trump decides to do tomorrow.

The silence of Republicans in congress after their president basically sold the United States out makes me think Putin has a tape of all of them peeing.

The DEETS: Russia’s one of the poorest countries in the world with a GDP of $1.3 trillion (which is $400 trillion less than the state of Texas) while America’s GDP is the largest at $20 trillion. President Putin’s the richest man in the world said to have over $200 billion dollars while President Trump is worth $3.1 billion, or 1.5% of Putin.
As I said today and many times before, “I have GREAT confidence in MY intelligence people.” However, I also recognize that in order to build a brighter future, we cannot exclusively focus on the past – as the world’s two largest nuclear powers, we must get along! #HELSINKI2018

President Trump must clarify his statements in Helsinki on our intelligence system and Putin. It is the most serious mistake of his presidency and must be corrected—-immediately.

Great World Cup. Question for President Trump as he meets Putin: Do you know which team you play for?
— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) July 16, 2018
Trump was just asked whether he believed US Intel or Putin on whether Russia meddled. His answer: Where is Hillary Clinton's email server?

Today’s press conference in #Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory.

I don’t have anything quippy to tweet. I’m horrified – and have never been more proud of the fact that Putin hates my father so much he personally sanctioned him on Russia’s enemies list.
