"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

Haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate hate

Well, Russia certainly thinks so:

"The West's attempts to isolate Russia failed," read the state-run newspaper Rossiisskaya Gazeta, according to a translation by Reuters.

In Moscow, there was a recognition that the summit did not produce any breakthroughs on issues such as Syria, Ukraine or arms control. Instead, the focus was on the symbolism of the leader of the world's remaining superpower sitting one-on-one with Putin after years of international isolation.

"The attention of the whole world is focused today on Helsinki and it's crystal clear to everyone: The fate of the world is being decided between Russia and the United States, the leaders of the two major powers of our planet are meeting," Alexey Pushkov, a member of the upper house of the Russian parliament, tweeted Monday.

Putin faces little genuine political opposition and controls much of the press in his country.

Pretty much the same "good things" that came out of meeting with Kim Jong Un.  Still, haters gonna hate:

Is it too early to label this the "Taylor Swift" presidency?   And "so many people"?  Name two, who aren't Russian.  Dan Coats will not be one of them:

Nor will John Brennan:
Who you got?

This could be seen as a test of how much treason the Republicans will accept for what they want, tax breaks for their billionaire patrons, white supremacy, etc. And it seems that no level of treason by Trump is enough for them to take a chance on not getting those things.

Republicans are the party of treason who sold us to the Putin crime regime, just as they deliver for Americans criminal class like the Mercers, the Kochs, Sheldon Adelson, etc.

So now a press conference is considered a "performance"? Truly a reality show president. Sad.
