The meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 Summit in Germany has been on the top of many people’s minds. Some had speculated that they would discuss allegations made by the American media that Russia interfered in the 2016 election on Trump’s behalf.
Commented Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, “They had a very robust and lengthy exchange on the subject. The president pressed President Putin on more than one occasion regarding Russian involvement. President Putin denied such involvement, as I think he has in the past.”
Radio host Rush Limbaugh addressed the topic, talking about how CNN’s Jackie Calmes claimed that Putin did not “diplay confidence” during the Trump meeting because Putin did not look his American counterpart in the eye. Said Rush satirically on his show, “There’s some babe on CNN, some analyst, analyzing the Trump-Putin meeting is going on longer than expected. Isn’t it obvious? Trump and Putin are already plotting the 2020 election, probably doing some things on the 2018 midterms. What else could be going on? What in the world else is there?”
He added, “So I guess I shouldn’t be surprised when a panelist at CNN thinks that Putin is the strongman, that Putin is the alpha male, that Putin is the dominant figure, and that Trump’s the one that ought to be weaseling up there and asking for permission to be in Putin’s presence.”
Rush said how ridiculous it was that CNN was saying that Putin’s lack of confidence was somehow a bad thing for America. He detailed, “When Putin was in a room with Obama, he sat back; he had not a care in the world. It was almost like he was disrespecting Obama. He was just telegraphing disrespect. But it was a different Putin that I saw with Trump. He looked down a lot. There was no steely confidence.” Continued Limbaugh, “Of course, the truth is Putin would have to stare at the sky to look Trump in the eye because Putin is a shrimp compared to Trump. What is Putin, 5′ 5″? People don’t know this but he could slither into a tank here with no problem whatsoever. He’s a tiny guy.” Do you agree with Rush?
