You just know that Trump with Putin today is going to go really, really badly. With his total, unequivocal inexperience, the only other U.S. person Trump will have in the room with him will be the equally inexperienced Rex "Friend to Russia-honoree" Tillerson. There won't even be any American there taking notes -- accurately or otherwise.
So, one on side, you'll have Vladimir Putin, ex-KGB officer, and Sergey Lavrov, each with 20-25 years experience in government. And on the other side, two businessmen each with six months experience -- one, a sociopath needy for praise, and the other, an award recipient as a "Friend to Russia."
O what could go wrong?
But it's even worse. After all, it's pretty fair to assume that Putin and Lavrov were doing final prep before going into the meeting. What was Trump doing? What else? He was tweeting about John Podesta not turning over the DNC server to investigators! And that's bad enough, except that Podesta was not with the DNC!! And further, he was the victim of hacks.
The thing is, you just know that Putin and Lavrov will absolutely suck up to Trump at the beginning, say all manner of nice, warm, friendly things about him, how great and wonderful he is, and Trump will just roll over to have his soft belly rubbed.
