Eeegads... you need a collar and leash to be pulled away from trolling out this site with your partisan Taurine faecal matter (like a couple of other members here too!)

So he meets Putin once and suddenly they are BFF's? Trust me there would have been much more communication with Russia by now if they weren't being absolutely demonized by racists on the left who like to generalize an entire nation. They've made it such a volatile issue that any coordination with Russia is difficult without them throwing a hissy fit.
The two leaders chatted in a foursome with Obama's national security adviser Susan Rice and a Russian aide. Their meeting was visible on a television feed provided by the summit's host country of Turkey, but their conversation couldn't be heard. Reporters weren't allowed in for the meeting, which took place during a working lunch for leaders attending the summit. Obama and Putin both leaned in close to each other as they talked, with Obama gesturing expressively with his hands.

Oh NOES! Please stop posting bad things about the prez! Please! He can't be allll that bad, righto?
WHAT do you want, people? Do you want to put fingers in your ears and go "LALALA, CAN'T HEAR YOU!", because you sound like that!
Stand to your prez all you want, but he DOES DO STUPID THINGS. And this smalltalk, WITNESSED BY THE OUTWEIRDED LEADERS OF G20 IN PERSON, was stupid!
No following of protocol means in this case that there was no second US-american official (even as a translator) as a witness to what was discussed.
Stupid. Just. Stupid.
Or careless. Careless about the possible future of the world, because two people with the ability to start a nuclear war were talking to each other without people to smooth over, or at least divert a heated argument as soon as that happened.
We were lucky the dumba$$ didn't try to sell some property to Putin, like Hawaii or Alaska or the Golden Gate Bridge... Isn't he the Greatest Dealmaker Of All Time? Help us god.
He obstructed justice in firing Comey, he's done nothing but lie about his Russian contacts, he's done nothing but lie period. Meanwhile the business of the country goes undone. Desks empty everywhere because either he won't hire replacements or in some cases can't get people to want to come work for him.

Confirmation process moving slowest since George Washington admin
Senate Democrats, vowing to use "everything" they can to stop Trump's nominees, have used procedural tricks like boycotting committee meetings to slow the confirmation process to a historically slow pace.
