... the Russian leader was constantly "frustrated" with the former President over his lack of knowledge ...

If this report proves true...

Well, yeah.

Pres Putin may not be the only person completely frustrated with fmr Pres Trump's general ignorance.

I am absolutely certain Trump understood this.

Not a fan of Trump, but this is a classic negotiating tactic.

Yeah, the bankrupting loser with cotton candy hair and a girdle was just pretending to be a joke.

@#4 ... Not a fan of Trump .. .

Really?

imo, the comments of your alias seem to suggest otherwise.


That aside, why might your current alias think this is a classic negotiating tactic?

Sure. Playing stupid might be a negotiating tactic for someone who is knowledgeable and who wants to test their opponent's honesty.

But being an actual clueless moron really isn't a tactic at all.

It's just being a clueless moron.

What does that say about Putin who hitched his wagon to such a clueless moron?

For Trump ?
Three-dimensional chess grandmaster and very stable genius Trump?
You'd have to be slurping soma to believe that.

When I was a manager, albeit briefly, I always tried to hire people who I believed might be smarter than me. The evolving trainwreck that is the remains of TFG's Presidency show what happens when your monster ego insists you be the smartest guy in the room.

Trump is a New York Socialite median personality. He's a reality TV star.

Of course you're going to have to explain things to him.

Do you think Kim Kardashian knows where Ukraine is? Do you think RuPaul has the first clue about NATO?

Trump's an idiot. Putin and Erdogan (athe very least) played him like a fiddle.

"Says a lot about their own cognitive abilities."

There are people who love Trump...for the same reason they love reality TV. Drama.

I can't stand him, but if Bernie were the nominee, I'd be handing out Trump bumper stickers.

Trump cares about his own glory. Bernie cares about the radical transformation of the United States by any means.

Guess which one is more dangerous.

I disagree on your take.

It's about more than the individual and you have to account for those they surround themselves with.

Trump surrounded himself with more than vain, glory seeking grifters. People like Cawthorn and Bannon are perfect examples.

You'd be foolishly short sighted to elect Trump over Bernie. Why? Bernie will never succeed. Trump and his merry band of fascists likely will.

"You'd be foolishly short sighted to elect Trump over Bernie. Why? Bernie will never succeed. Trump and his merry band of fascists likely will."

Honestly, I don't see Bernie and Trump as being very different when it comes to the threat of authoritarianism. The difference between the two is Trump would do whatever it takes to enable and cement his own power, Bernie would do the same to cement the position of radical progressivism in US politics. And he said as much, that he would use every bit of legal trickery available in order to achieve his goals.

And if you think through the methods that Trumpists could take power, the very same applies to Bernie.

Well. That's cause you're a fkkking idiot.

But. No surprise there.

Carry on, cannon fodder.

That's it?

Nothing about being a fascist reactionary bourgeois?

I feel like you left out the most important aspects of your intended insult.

No. Summed it all pretty succinctly.

Nothing really more to say to a moron who think Bernie is the same as Trump.

What's the point. You're clearly one of the dumbest posters on the DR.

Considering the competition ...

Carry on, cannon fodder.

Not just Bernie. I think you're the same as Trump as well.

I just don't see you having any shred of concern about the constitution, other than when it serves your needs. But if it were trampled in the name of progressivism, I don't think you'd shed to many tears.

Bottom line, if the choices were to implement progressive policy that violated the constitution, or abandon progressive policy and preserve the constitution, you'd choose the former.

Bernie is trash.

I wonder if he and Putin ever crossed paths when he was out on one of his trips promoting socialism and the Soviet Union. They're about the same age.

I guess you're the same as Trump too.

You guess?

What criteria would allow you to believe that I had anything in common with Trump?
