What A Difference A Day Makes

The ‘honeymoon’ is over for Drumpf in Russia. It’s not just CNN giving him ‘a hard time’, Young Communists Truth is bad-mouthing him.

The BBC notes that Russian media is no longer dazzled by Trump:

On Friday, Russia’s most popular tabloid, Komsomolskaya Pravda, accused President Trump of making “contradictory” statements about NATO.

The paper points out: “(During the election campaign) Trump had called the Alliance obsolete and useless. Less than two months have passed since he moved into the Oval Office and he’s already expressed full support for NATO.

“As the saying goes, you need to be drunk to understand the true position of America’s president.”

If anyone thinks that they would have printed that without the approval of Vladimir Vladimirovich, they haven’t been paying attention to the current government of Russia.

Drumpf doesn’t really want to be President, he wants to be ‘a star’. He isn’t interested in working, only in receiving applause.If his father had given him guitar lessons and a Stratocaster when he was nine, he might even be a happy man, touring as the opening act for the Rolling Stones instead of putting up tacky hotels, and pretending he knows how to manage anything.
