U.S. Press Shut-Out From Today's Trump-Lavrov Meeting In The White House But Not A Russian Press Photographer

Business Insider: The reason we know about Trump's meeting with a key figure in the Russia probe is because of the Kremlin

President Donald Trump met with a key figure at the center of the probe into Trump's campaign, Russian ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak, and the only official transmission of the moment came from an official Russian government photographer.

In a tweet on Wednesday, the Russian embassy in the US and other Russian agencies released photos of Trump meeting the Russian ambassador, whose discussions with former national security adviser Flynn about US sanctions on Russia helped push Flynn to resign within weeks of coming onto the job.

The photo opportunity came during Trump's meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the White House on Wednesday, which was closed to press.

Can't hold a Handlers meeting with Agent Orange in view or earshot of the US Media.

The 1st thing the presstitutes did was ask the Russian ambassador about Comey.

They asked "What did he know and when did he know it."

Would you invite asswipes like that into the meeting?

Comedy gold. Good on Trump for cramming their blinkered, fake nontroversy hysterics right up their collective ass. Trump knows execrly how to get deep, DEEP inside the addled leftist mind. Not that difficult, actually. Like playing "go fetch " with you're pet dog.

/and they're not even aware they're being played.

Arresting the Press,

Liberal Hunting lisences:

Brownshirt Sign up sheets at GunMart, remember to sign up early, the early signers get the Long Knife Special,

Then the Spetznazi's taking your guns,

Then the Gulags.

Putin get's the Donbass and Crimea, Xi get's South Korea and Japan.

The US falls behind Bangladesh on livability.


The reality is Trump/Russia/Putin investigations will continue.

The leaks continue,

Bannon will eventually come up with a Nominee who doesn't decline,

He'll join the list as #438 waiting in queue,

The House and Senate will slow to a crawl on everything,

The teabaggers will continue to sabotage the Republican Party, the Dems will abstain, until September, when another short term budget will pass, eventually.

Trump will continue to shoot himself in the foot twice a week, sometimes 3.

Republican's will continue to run away from Town Halls.

Nothing much will change, between now and November, 2018, other than much less "winning" and "MAGA" than the first 109 days.

There will be lots more sabre rattling, some strikes for show, but the US Military's "tapped out".

LMFAO." - Jay

there is always a laughing jackass when you need one.

"The HDI for Bangladesh is 0.547, which gives the country a rank of 140th out of 177 countries with the following data:

a) Bangladesh’s human development index 2005:
b) HDI value: 0.547
c) Life expectancy at birth: 63.1 years
d) Adult literacy rate: 47.5 (% ages 15 and older)
e) Combined primary, secondary and tertiary gross enrolment ratio: 56.0%
f) GDP per capita (PPP): US$2,053 "

So much for the clown JabberJay

The U.S. is a republic.

Maybe you learned that and forgot.
Maybe you never learned it.
Maybe you are addled.

The Main Stream Press is a political party. What right do scurrilous politicians have to be in every meeting the President of the opposition party has?
