It’s no surprise to anyone that Putin things of Trump is a positive light but the same can’t be said of the rest of the US Government. In Moscow this Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin showered President Trump with praise but also took the opportunity to talk about just how the US Government was eating itself up.
A documentary featuring a number of Putin’s interviews with the Russian state television were released on Wednesday in which he described Trump as a great communicator.
“I have no disappointment at all,” Putin said when asked about the US president. “Moreover, on a personal level he made a very good impression on me.”

But that’s not all he had to say. Both have met multiple times and hardly have anything bad to say about one another. Putin went on to say: “It’s possible to negotiate with him, to search for compromises.”
Take your time, girl. We know you have to wait for Putin to text you back. https://t.co/d4usSV4LqJ

Although he spoke nothing but of praise for the US President, Putin didn’t have the same opinion of the US Government for some rather obvious reasons. From the view of a third party, the American Government is truly a mess right now with both the left and right sides only making matters worse with each day. The Russian President went as far as to say “it has demonstrated its inefficiency and has been eating itself up.”
“It’s quite difficult to interact with such a system, because it’s unpredictable,” Putin said. This many have speculated was said in response to many investigations that the FBI and Washington are involved in for the 2016 Election Collusion for which there have been close to no proof as of now. Any chances of better ties between the two nations have also been completely dashed because of the matter.
When asked about why the relationship between Russia and America is so tense, Putin said it’s based on the West’s efforts to weaken Russia. “We are a great power, and no one likes competition,” he said.
Jerry Brown’s California has turned a $27B deficit to a $6B surplus, dropped its overall crime rate 5% and is 1/7 of the US GDP.
Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions shouldn’t pick a fight with Brown and California, they should should pick a fight with Putin and Russia.

In a rather surprising turn of events, Russian President Putin also said that he had spent a fair amount of time talking to Melania Trump at the official 20 summit dinner Hamburg, Germany in July. Melania Trump wasn’t the only one that was present there but the wife of the Italian Prime Minister was also present. When asked what they talked about Putin said, “about Siberia and Kamchatka, about fishing … about bears on Kamchatka and tigers in the Far East.”
“I made some exaggerations,” the action-loving Russian leader said with a grin.
“When you talk about fishing, you can’t help exaggerating.”
Asked jokingly by the interviewer if he was trying to recruit the women, the KGB veteran responded by saying: “No, I stopped dealing with that a long time ago.”
He added with a smile: “But I liked doing that, it was my job for many years.
Trump has attacked: SNL, Nordstrom, Meryl Streep, Schwarzenegger, Rosie, Hamilton, a Gold Star family, a war hero, a war widow, storm-ravaged Puerto Rico, his own AG, half of Congress.
Trump won't say a negative thing about: Putin & the porn star.
What do they have on him?

Naturally, Democrats consider this as more “proof” that Putin and Trump are conspiring behind their backs – without having any proof of collusion.
