Trump is meeting with Putin.
Or to put it another way the heads of state of the United States and Russia are having a pre-planned meeting in the capital of a neutral third country.
According to the unhinged Left, this is treason.
Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???

Trump just committed treason. There is no other word for it. He just met with the Osama bin Laden of this generation. Someone who is currently still attacking Americans at this very moment. Trump must resign and get the hell out of the White House, NOW! #TreasonSummit

This kind of meeting is nothing new. I was a baby when it happened but even Ronald Reagan met with Mikhail Gorbachev in Reykjavík, Iceland.
Then again, these people probably said that was treason too.
Clearly, these people have lose their shit.
But just for a minute, let’s humor them.
Say that they are right. Trump is in Putin’s pocket.
Trump has lowered our taxes and deregulated some of the economy, which is now booming. The unemployment numbers are so good that they New York Times ran out of words to describe it.* Minority unemployment is at record lows. The Trump economy is seeing record wage increases.
Trump got our allies in NATO to promise to boost their spending on defense.
The Russian economy is floundering, growing at an Obama-economy rate, partially because Trump is squeezing Russia’s balls. Russia also hit a record low birth rate which is an indicator of just how bad it is for the people there (the country has fallen to such shit that Russians have given up on fucking).
So Trump has strengthened the American economy and is increasing the defensive capabilities of NATO while Russia goes into slow collapse.
What does Russia get out of any of this?
If Trump was a Russian puppet, shouldn’t the Russian economy be growing and the US economy sinking.
If I were a Russian puppet, I’d turn off American oil wells and buy oil from Russia. Not expanding US drilling which undercuts Russian oil prices.
So if Trump really did conspire with Putin to win the election and is selling out America, what is the bad and when is going to hit?
If this is the effect of being bought by Russia, Obama should have sold out on day one. We would have done better.
