We said yesterday that “Putin flinched“. We were wrong, it was much more than a flinch.
Russian President Vladimir Putin relies upon the appearance of strength for his domestic political influence. What most of the media are missing from today’s visit by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was the duration of time Putin met with T-Rex. Russian State TV provides propaganda the same way U.S. MSM gaslight the grubered U.S. audience.
The meeting was, according to all narratives framed, an “unexpected” audience. This narrative would be funny if the issues were not so consequential.
Russian President Vladimir Putin does not hold two hour “unscheduled” or “unexpected” meetings as as function of some diplomatic protocol or gesture of his magnanimity.
Putin fears T-Rex and Trump.
