Russian Apprentice: Trump, America’s wannabe Putin, meets the real deal
Vladimir Putin and his apprentice Donald Trump will meet for the first time — that we know of — on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, this week. And never before has a meeting between two heads of state felt more like the climax of a long-distance love that dare not speak its name.
The mental foreplay between the two men has been so interminable, so filled with fanboy tweets and hints of a deeper, mysterious bond that violates most geopolitical norms and possibly key passages of the Constitution, that it’s difficult not to fantasize about the first encounter — or at least the first handshake — between the two men, despite the obvious risks of nausea.
Apparently, neither can Trump.
JS: The media still can't accept that not only is Donald Trump still president, he is popular, doing well in his leadership role. The media also know most of American likes Putin and hate the media.
