'You Think Russia Ever Goes In and Gets Ukraine, or No?': The Wildest Things Trump Said...

Source: Vice News

WASHINGTON — President Trump was even more blunt, crass, and unfiltered during a private dinner in 2018 at the Trump Hotel than he normally is in public.

While the big standout of the meal was his demand to fire the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, his transactional approach to geopolitics, total lack of concern for helping America’s international allies, and openness to letting businessmen convince him to back specific policies that’d benefit them illustrates just how the leader of the free world operates behind closed doors.

Trump has never met Lev Parnas yet he talks to him a number of times during the dinner about Ukraine (including specifically about Marie Yovanovitch)and the marijuana industry. He is representing a few small interests at our expense. I'm sure we, as taxpayers, paid for that dinner.

2. He takes Putin and Parnas' advice over all of his advisors and US officials

On tape I think it's Parnas who makes comment about Ukraine liking Clinton and Biden and Parnas makes sure to let Trump know that Marie Yovanovich was a Clinton holdover. That's enough for Trump to bark out his orders to get rid of the ambassador and take her out.

4. ORDERS, not "advice". He follows Putins ORDERS.

Because of his imbecilic business acumen, Putin OWNS his ass through money laundering through his properties and illegal loans through Deutsche Bank.

3. Before his interview, I thought Parnas may be a backchannel

to Putin, via Firtash. After this dinner, I think he may be the one feeding him all this deep state/anti Clinton crap, on whose behalf, I am unsure.
On a sidenote, I actually assumed it would be worse..

7. Why do I keep reading this "they talked about firing her" meme...

When the clowns he was talking to had absolutely none...zero...zilch...authority to fire her.

Why isn't that being discussed... anywhere... in any mainstream news forum?

8. Interesting quote about Sanders.

“ “Had she picked Bernie Sanders it would’ve been tougher. He’s the only one I didn’t want her to pick,” Trump said.”

11. Marijuana

To tell the truth it was an interesting exchange regarding marijuana given that it was word for word the same pro marijuana talking points ever uttered in any discussion of weed vs. alcohol. Complete with alcohol makes people violent, marijuana just "lowers iq." Now might be a good time to introduce some legislation...
