    His first time meeting Putin in the flesh as POTUS. The G20 summit is July 7, and Putin will be there. This is going to be interesting. I wonder what Trump and Putin will talk about? What kind of crazy conspiracy theories will be concocted?

    They will discuss merging the 2 countries to create a truly global empire. Washington and Moscow will become co-capitals, we'll build another White House in Moscow and Putin another Kremlin in DC. All official government communications will be done in English and Russian going forward.

    Won't ever happen.

    Russia has universal single-payer healthcare that covers everyone, including the sick, poor, and elderly. GOP would never allow it because they hate helping the sick, poor, and elderly.

    The Russian constitution establishes that citizens have a right to state-run healthcare and medicine free of charge. The GOP will never allow it because they hate rights except those that let you shoot school children.

    Putin recently announced that the obligatory medical insurance tax paid by companies is increased from 3.1% to 5.1%. The GOP will never allow it because taxes.

    Then claims fake news, followed by claiming it was actually he who left with 4 because he's a good negotiator, then claims fake news again and that it was Clinton who exchanged suitcases with Putin, then something about Obama.

    In all seriousness though, should be interesting. My prediction is that at least while the cameras are rolling, Trump tries to pretend he never saw Putin, and Putin turns it into a game and makes sure he's in the background behind Trump and looking towards the cameras with some evil grin as much as possible.

    I don't expect much from it really.

    So, what you're saying is, that GOP wants the elderly to die quicker thereby culling its base? :confused:

    They'll each give each other the straight poker face, and then after a firm handshake, they'll tongue each other down.

    I wonder if Trump's advisers are going to coach him on how to communicate with Putin. What not to say, stuff like that. Putin is pretty cunning, lets hope Trump doesn't fall into his verbal traps.

    No one can coach Trump. He'll also be too giddy to stick to script, probably brag about all the secrets he knows.

    Somebody needs to warn Putin to gird his loins, because, you know, Trump is a celebrity so he can just reach out and ....

    So long as Putin allows him to do it, like the women in the quote so many keep twisting to fit their agenda, I'm OK with it.

    'twisting'? Have you actually heard the quote? He's admitting to sexual assault, plain and simple.

    EDIT: And Trump deserves to be mocked mercilessly for it.

    Definitely going to be a Mr and Mrs Smith affair. Kudos points to anyone who figures out this reference, and no, it's got nothing to do with that terrible Bradgolena film.

    It's great that everyone is has insurance in Russia, but unfortunately they have a horrid healthcare system. In fact thousands of their towns have no healthcare access at all and much of the healthcare they do have is quite unacceptable.

    I think I'd rather be in the US (where even the uninsured can get emergency care) and have access to a clean hospital, with bathrooms not overflowing with human waste, where one doesn't have to bribe staff to get adequate attention than get opposite of the above for free.

    Free healthcare isn't necessarily better than what we have. Russia has received national and international condemnation for their health infrastructure. I truly hope for the people of Russia that an increase in spending will fix the rampant issues with their imploding healthcare system.

    Yes, I was being tongue-in-cheek.

    Anecdote - I was ~17 last time I was in Russia, and I got a staph infection somehow somewhere. My dad brought me to a neighborhood clinic that his friends there told him was good. We get there, and the line to even get in is a block long. Further, the person letting people in is checking passports which was an issue for us because I no longer have a Russian passport and for obvious reasons we didn't think it would be wise to show them my US passport. We push to the front of the line, and my dad hands the passport-checking lady two crisp Benjamins and demands to see a doctor quick for my infection. She calls a nurse, who brings us to an examination room right away. Dad gives the nurse a few 20s. Doctor comes in, looks at my arm, brings in an ultrasound machine to look at the infection (not sure why, but it was pretty bad and swollen by this point), and prescribes me meds. Dad pays him a few hundred bucks too. We got get the prescription filled, and I'm fine.

    Moral of the story: the almighty dollar will get you anything in Russia.

    I expect them to kiss. Putin will lean forward, whisper into Trump’s ear “remember the golden tapes I have,” and then kiss Trump.
