11. My thought! I don't think I've seen Bolton smile before. Creepy!

If he was a dog he might be trying to lick Putin's face.

As for Pence, lol. Laura P pegged it. Looks more like he's trying to control his obedient follower urge.

16. :). Bet you know... Does Putin speak English at all? I have never

talked to someone via an interpreter. But I think if I did I would tend to glance at the person who was speaking my language. I would find it quite distracting to stare at the person who didn't speak my language??

I know this is not important but I'm curious and it was the first thing I noticed

23. Putin speaks English, like many World leaders.

Maybe doesn't speak it well, but he certainly understands it at some moderate level, if not just above conversational. He started his KGB desk work in East Germany; German is similar enough to English that it wouldn't be that difficult to learn both.

Translators are not just to provide the translation of words or concepts for a non-native speaker, they are there as a political tool; for one participant to provide a more passive posture that might provide an advantage during negotiations or other discussions.

Sort of like Sen. John Kennedy pretending he's just a simple good ol' boy country lawyer to his constituents to gain their trust.

25. He does, but doesn't use it off-the-cuff

because he's not completely fluent (and it does seem reasonable to prefer to get a professional to express it than take the risk of saying something wrong). Here's a rare occasion, when he wanted to get people to agree to an international exposition in Russia:



I'd guess leaders get used to using interpreters pretty quickly.

17. You know he looks that way quite often. Is it Tapper

who just interviewed pence, can't remember? No matter what the question, nukes or merry-go-rounds, pence paused each time with the most ominous look on his face.

Horror movie ready

.....went to the DMZ and tried to act tough.

5. Mike has no more idea how to run for high office than Eloon does how to fix twitter.

He makes Dan Quayle look smart, which is quite a heavy lift.

8. Well I enjoyed watching Mike Pence

get red in the face with all that screaming and shouting and arm waving he was doing to put
Putler in his place and behave on the world stage. He showed him who was BOSS.

9. Sure.

Boltons’s thinking, “I’m looking for a weakness so we might be able to assassinate this commie”.
Pence, “ Don’t get into international politics, one goal, get SCOTUS to overturn Roe Vs Wade”.

14. From the expression on Bolton's face, I thought Bolton was thinking, "I love him SO much. If

he shakes my hand, I'll never wash it as long as I live!"

13. Damn. Bolton was absolutely gushing over Putin... I'll remember that scene

when I hear about how hard-nosed he was. And white-bread Pence only looks to be thinking whether or not Putin was going to give the order for a knife in his back.

27. Fair's fair, you can't hear what Putin is saying

For example, we can't hear if Vladimir is saying, "Comrade Mikhail, if you're not going to move your car so I can leave quickly, just say okay, hokay?"

Pence: "Okay."

Vlad: "Fine. I'll make other arrangements."

Boy, I'll bet Putin was really steamed when Pence said something he didn't want to hear!
