Trump, Putin meet, shake hands — liberals freak out

On Friday, President Trump met Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G-20 Summit in Hamburg.  Trump actually shook Putin’s hand and reportedly said, “It is an honor to be with you.”  Putin reportedly replied: “I’m delighted to meet you personally, and I hope our meeting will bring results.”  Naturally, this and the subsequent meeting prompted liberals across the Internet to freak out.

Here’s just a small sample of the hate that spewed from the left:


Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?



Of course, that didn’t happen, but hey, who among the left really needs any facts, right?

Trump, the UK Guardian said, “refused to answer a shouted question about Russian meddling in the US presidential election, but told Putin: ‘We look forward to a lot of positive things happening for Russia and the US.'”

The meeting was reportedly expected to only last 30 minutes, but the meeting went on for over two hours, prompting even more hate from the insane left.

Right — meeting with the leader of another world power is a slap in the face to Americans.  No doubt, Obama telling the Russians he would have more flexibility after he won re-election was perfectly okay in their eyes…


No doubt some at CNN, the outlet viewed by many as the least-trusted name in network news, will run with this talking point, or at least something very similar.

Laura Ingraham sarcastically noted:


A Rex Tillerson parody account added:


How many in the liberal fake news media will fall for this parody? CNN? MSNBC? Keith Olbermann?

Chuck Woolery added:


We expect propagandists at CNN to drag this out probably until the 2020 election…

Meanwhile, the Daily Caller said, Trump missed a climate change meeting to chat with Putin, a move that is certain to trigger many on the left:

President Donald Trump will have to skip out on most of a meeting on global warming in order to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit Friday.

Trump “will have to cut short a potentially uncomfortable discussion on climate change, a major element of the agenda on which he has broken with European allies,” The New York Times reported.

Trump’s meeting with Putin is scheduled to start 15 minutes after the session on “Sustainable Growth, Climate, and Energy” begins. European leaders are expected to bring up the U.S. withdrawal from the Pairs climate accord during the session.

Some even tried to analyze the body language of the meeting.  According to the UK Sun:

Body language expert Judi James claims the US President “nailed” the historic handshake with the Russian leader and proved his superior status with a double-handed fist-pump at the event in Germany.

While speaking with The Sun Online, she said: “If this shake were a prize fight, and it nearly was, I would have awarded a points victory to Trump.”

She added: “The gap was a sure sign of the pressure felt by both men at that moment but as Putin raised an almost wary-looking hand for the shake Trump leaned forward with an outstretched arm and offered his hand palm-up.

“This is an infamous power-trap and Putin had no option but to put his hand into the clamp.

“Once there he suffered an underarm-patting from Trump that made him look like the dominant leader, so much so that Putin responded with a pointed finger, which is the body language equivalent of drawing a weapon.

“If Trump wanted to show friendliness but superior status I have to say he nailed it this time,” James added.

So there you have it. Trump nailed the handshake causing liberals to lose what’s left of their alleged minds, while Putin used his finger like a weapon.

Exit question: How long before Maxine Waters demands Trump be impeached for meeting with Putin?
