The day after Trump fires FBI Director James Comey for “doing a bad job,” he meets in the Oval Office with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, left, next to Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak, right.
The American press was banned from this meeting and photo op, but obviously, the Russian press was not, and within minutes of the meeting, pictures of the Russians in the Oval Office surfaced on the Internet, this above being one of them.
Trump actually said he was “tricked” into this. Our master negotiator was “tricked” by a couple of Russians?
Doesn’t Trump know that being seen with Russians right now might not look so good? Doesn’t Trump know that the entire country is looking into illegal or possibly treasonous activities of Trump as it relates to Russia?
But banning the American press, and thereby the American people from the Oval Office, OUR Oval Office, but letting the Russian press in, is nothing less than – shall I use the word – deplorable.
This shows that Trump simply does not give a damn what we think. He is the president, and he can do anything he wants.
