Part of me was hoping they were stupid enough to try this. I was, in a way, looking forward to a State Department revolution.

1. Did they really have to think about it for a couple of days?

3. I know. The fact that Putin would even suggest this tells you what he thinks of the traitor.



Any other president would have told him on the spot to go fuck himself.

5. Trump disagrees???

That's either the dumbest headline ever written, or Trump actually said he disagrees with Putin's proposal. Got a feeling the headline is actually a quote. Truly heavy sigh.

6. Unqualified and incompetent.

He shouldn't be in any political office.

He shouldn't be allowed to remain in any political office.

8. Gloria Borger was just now ripping him over his weak walk-back.

She really hates his guts. I know, it's a long line.

10. After consideration, Trumps "disagrees" with Putin's proposal.

This the wimpiest response I have ever heard. The correct response to Putin's outrageous demand (not proposal) was clear: Under no circumstances will the United States hand over an American citizen to Russia. This response should have been immediate and forceful, not after "consultation." And it should have been delivered by Trump himself, not through a mealy-mouthed spokesperson like SHS.

But that's not who we've got in the Oval Office, do we? We have a man who fires his Secretary of State by tweet. Who bends over backwards to avoid even the possibility of annoying the murderous autocrat of our greatest adversary, who talks tough with our friends and meekly cowtows to our enemies.

"Disagrees" is not the same as "will not under any circumstances do what Putin demands."

13. I really doubt that happened

The truth is probably they had to talk him into changing his position because it had no chance of happening, and he was again probably trying to set up Hillary for Putin , and maybe President Obama. Putin really hated them both because they WERE strong against him , and not a weakling like trump is. He was like a bowl of jello around putin , then when miles away he switched to his tough guy act he likes people to think of him as, but in reality he proved again he's a coward.
