/> Putin on Trump:

  • "He is a very flamboyant man, very talented, no doubt about that""

Trump hears: " he called me a genius. He said Donald

Trump is a genius."

NO he didn't, Donald. That is what you want to hear, but he said you were talented, not a genius. Repeating that little lie doesn't make it any more believable.

" "Well I think when [Putin] called me brilliant, I'll take the compliment, okay?" - September 2016

Putin did not call him brilliant; he said he was know, a tv star! Lassie was talented; no one ever said he was a genius.

Trump, being a total narcissist craves admiration, and that is why he thinks "talented" means "genius" and "brilliant." If no one else will toot the horn he wants to hear, he will toot it himself.

Putin is a master political psychologist, and he knows how to flatter people to control them. Trump has fallen for it completely! He is a weak man who has used his bully tactics to intimidate people; Putin is not intimidated, for he has made of Trump a pliable lapdog.

His entire detente with Putin is based on a simple act of flattery which Trump then exaggerated to make himself a "brilliant genius."

In fact, he is a fool and Putin is playing him as such.

That's the good news!

They're back!

The bad news is that Trump has chosen as his chief advisors a core of anti-Russian war mongers, against whom he cannot stand up.

Trump said "NATO is obsolete." Then, after the generals talked to him, they did not come out and say, "NATO is useless," but Trump came out and said...."By the way, I am a big fan of NATO."

That shows that he is a tool of the neo-cons, whom he has surrounded himself with. Putin, being brilliant based on his achievements, knows that but seeks to use Trump to restrain the war hawks Trump has selected to advise him. That is brilliant strategy.
