    Americans cheer the complete dissolving of the soviet union, interfere heavily with yeltsin run for power and then accuse the country that's trying to re-establish itself after massive trauma of persuading voters and THEN make out as though meeting and talking to Russians is forbidden - the hypocrisy and authoritarian attitude is nauseating !

    Russia is a Capitalist Country
    United States is a Capitalist Country
    How can Russia be a threat to the USA?
    If Russia affected the outcome of the election, by revealing the truth about the democrats, isn't Russia trying to save the USA from a crooked Socialist/Communist Agenda?
    I would think Russia would have plenty experience in identifying socialists/communist nut jobs, that are a threat to a country like Russia and the USA.
    Russia has been to socialism/communism and knows Capitalism is better. When you fucking get to take part in the Capitalist System.
    Don't you find it interesting that the Socialist/Communist democratic party in the USA, actually says Russia is a threat to the USA and Donald Trump is a traitor if he wants to work out the differences with Russia and we get together and kick bad peoples asses all over the planet?
    I mean come on, you can spell USA from the letters in RUSSIA. The USA and RUSSIA are more alike than most other countries. Hey Mr.Putin, look at that, you can spell USA from the letters in RUSSIA. If RUSSIA and the USA were to work together, there is nothing that could not be accomplished. Every nation should remain separate and autonomous though.
    A One World Government that rules all countries is the worst threat. Safety is in remaining separate, but working together. If a One World Government ruled everything, and it fails, who will be there to help? If each country remains separate, yet works together, if something happens in one country, the other countries can help. I believe the USA is exceptional and Americans should believe in themselves.
    The same for RUSSIA. They are exceptional and they should believe in themselves. Then we can believe in doing great and exceptional things together.
    Bring Stability to the world.
    Work together to make it so that everyone who wants to work, can have one, two or even three jobs if they want. At one time, I worked three jobs and worked seven days a week. Everyone is not like that, but if we work together, anyone who wants a job, could have one.
    Cure Diseases.
    Populate other planets, yes, other planets.. as in more than one other planet.
    I tell people, do not be fooled, in RUSSIA, a business owner has more freedom over his won private business, than in the USA right now, because of the perverted democratic party that is pushing to much regulation on people. They are not happy to regulate Americans, they want to regulate everyone on the planet. They love the One World Order, only it will not be Order, it will be Chaos.

    You Trumptards fail to acknowledge that all 17 of the US intelligence agencies agree that Russia interfered with the election. Frame it however you want, keep talking about Hillary and emails, but now you have a sitting president who in his own words said he fired Comey partly because of the Russia investigation.

    Seems like the interpreter possibly took some liberties with that translation. I think Putin said Trump is acting according to his own "authority" and/or "ability" . Competence seems like the wrong word. Why not let Putin speak English? He is quite good at it.

    I'm not a Trump supporter, he lost me with his strike on the Syrian Airbase. However, let me make this clear.
    Its totally obvious that the US deep state in correlation with the controlled Media is trying to impeach Trump.
    Media-shills in the USA are working 24/7 in their spin on this, they even try to interview Putin while he is busy playing Hockey. Putin does not give a ***** about their Propaganda.
    The amount of false news is alarming, its like they throw a load of shit to a wall and see what sticks.
    1. There where two camera men (the white house camera man + a Russian camera man). That's normal procedure. *->* Media spins it as if there was only a foreign (Russian) camera man present.
    Fact is, CNN... is rightfully excluded from any White House Press Meeting and this was not a press meeting anyway.
    As far as I'm concerned MSNBC and CBS should be excluded too. These outlets are completely exposed.
    2. People present at the meeting deny any claims of Trump leaking secret Information to Russia. -*>* Media doing Headlines saying that Trump leaked Information to Russia.
    3. Trump fired Comey because of his partial stance during the Hillary Email Scandal. *->* Media doing headlines that Trump fired Comey because he was investigating Trump.
    Honestly, I don't even want to list up all the fake news because I don't even care anymore. I don't get invested into this shit no more...
    Whats even more alarming, is the fact that people seem to eat this shit up and believe it. I know about social bots, but when I look at the influx of YT-comments on the subject it seems like ~70% of the comments is actually completely in-line with this media bias. Is the attention-span of these people really that low? Have they already forgot about the media manipulation during the US-election?
    It would be naive to think that this manipulation suddenly stops after Trump has been elected.
    Let me quote Denzel Washington: *If you don't watch the news, you are uninformed and if you watch the news, you are misinformed*
    Now, isn't it weird that the first and only time the media was in total euphoria with Trump was when he launched 50 missiles onto that Syrian airbase?
    If non of the above makes you doubt their legitimacy, than this should... especially with Hillary coming out of her cave and praising Trump for that action saying: "I would've done the same".
