    Between this and the August 11 Newsweek cover of Trump as a junk-food-gobbling couch potato, Mangolini’s not having a very good day, is he? He’ll have to throw himself another rally somewhere, quickly, in order to assuage his feelings.

    Seriously, Trump will flip out when he learns that Russia’s just branded him an easily outwitted weakling.

    I’m confident that Coure D’Alene has a venue.

    They are his base. They’ll rally. Heck, Leni Riefenstahl couldn’t have choreographed it tighter. They even have nifty red and black flags.

    Golly, they already have brown shirts. Most of ’em are retired LEOs. So good to go.

    Medvedev is totally acting in his own interest and on his own behalf without any input from Putin. Pinky swear.

    @de stijl:

    He’s fast running out of venues where his approval rating isn’t underwater. Idaho is one of the few remaining.

    My read of this would be that the Russians set out to cause chaos and undercut President Hillary, to their immense surprise Trump got elected, they briefly thought they could use Trump, but he proved too incompetent, so now they’re furiously trying to cover their tracks and are back to generating chaos. In this case by goading Trump into doing something stupid, like firing Mueller.

    To use the language of the Trumpies…Donnie has been cuck’d.

  8. Pete S says:

    @CSK: He doesn’t need a place where his ratings aren’t underwater. He just needs one that is big enough that the organizers can find a few thousand people who still support him and have nothing better to do than go to a pointless rally.

    I saw somewhere in the news the Russians described Trump as “impotent” last week in an official statement. An insult custom-crafted for maximal Trump rage, if there ever was.

    If it was to give him an opportunity to appear to “get tough” in Russia he should have taken it. Instead he ignoring it, which is highly uncharacteristic. Who else could call Trump impotent and get no response? He must have been either felt too frightened to pick a fight with the Russian leadership or so stunned into silence by this “betrayal”. Perhaps both.

    My best WAG is when the US banking community lost interest in loaning money to Trump Inc they began dealing Russians. The Russians oligarchs would like to have a US cover corp for their foreign developments, as protection against the US habit of using it’s world currency status as a weapon, sanctioning sometimes at whim. At some point the Trumps were approached about using real estate transactions to help them launder money and they were greedy and dumb enough to agree. They may have decided Trump is now counter productive to Russia and have decided to help destroy him.

    Parenthetically, he may have filled his cabinet with US bankers in hopes of being able to get them to loan money to him again. Goldman Sachs calls lawyers. Russians call baboons. They reserve the right to eff you up if you rip them off.

    Trump may be terrified.
