Officials considered one-on-one meeting between Trudeau and Putin, documents say

A one-on-one meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin could make for some difficult optics for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, given the swirling allegations surrounding Russian meddling in elections in the West.

    Especially Canada’s North West passage.

  • The fact is Canada interfered in the U.S. elections more than Russia did — the Lib’s foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland came to the U.S. and PUBLICLY campaigned for the Dems against Trump.

    I think the only thing the Russians may have done re: the election was clandestine data collection — something that they have always done. It’s called “Soc-Intel” — sociological, economic or political Intel that has no military significance and usually isn’t Classified (n.b.: the DNC and the Hillary campaign info was NOT in fact Classified which is why FBI couldn’t force them to hand over the servers). In fact, even American Allies often engage in this sort of clandestine data collection of one another — in trade-craft-speak it’s called “friendly spying”.

    Putin meets pussy; that should be interesting.

      Putin in the Ritz
      (apologies to Irving Berlin)

      Have you seen the G20 crew.
      Looking like the Hamberg Zoo
      On that Messe thoroughfare
      Noses in each other’s derriere

      High hopes but few are scholars
      Global plans, lots of my dollars
      Spending my tax dime
      For a wonderful time

      Trudeau flew
      And doesn’t know where to go to
      Why doesn’t he go where Russia sits
      Putin in the Ritz

      Polis who let in any foreign scrote
      Satisfaction from a lonely goat
      Description fits?
      Putin not having this

      Dressed up like a million dollar toy boy
      Acting like Canada’s newest playboy
      Super decoy

      Come, let’s mix where Rockefeller’s
      Have the politician fellows
      In their mitts
      Putin in the Ritz

      Now, if you’re Justin
      And you don’t know where to bust in,
      Why don’t you go where Russia sits
      Putin in the Ritz

      Polis who let in any foreign scrote
      Satisfaction from a lonely goat
      Description fits?

      Putin still not doing this
      Dressed up like a million dollar toy boy
      Acting like Canada’s newest playboy
      Super cowboy

      Come, let’s mix where Rockefeller’s
      Have the politician fellows
      In their mitts
      Putin in the Ritz

  • Oh, God … that would have been a disaster.

    İ doubt this will ever happenş Vladimir has far more important duties to carry out rather than meet with IQ80. Such as going to the bathroom.

  • Dave

    Trudope will try to dazzle Putin with some nifty socks so he can then go all Patrick Brazeau on his ass.
    Or so he would like to think.
    Petulant little man that he is.
