Trump lies again to try and save his hide, because he's a coward. He's not man enough to stand up to his master, Greasy Vlad.

Regarding Putin's manipulation and control of Trump...as LBJ used to say, "I've got his pecker in my pocket."

But the best analysis of what we are dealing with is from James Fallows' article in The Atlantic yesterday:

Quote:
There are exactly two possible explanations for the shameful performance the world witnessed on Monday, from a serving American president.

Either Donald Trump is flat-out an agent of Russian interests—

Or he is so profoundly ignorant, insecure, and narcissistic that he did not realize that, at every step, he was advancing the line that Putin hoped he would advance, and the line that the American intelligence, defense, and law-enforcement agencies most dreaded.

Conscious tool. Useful idiot. Those are the choices, though both are possibly true, so that the main question is the proportions.

My analysis is the latter.

LBJ would have eaten 45's lunch and gone back for more.
