Laughs, what happened? Dissing the Overlord? He has to watch it, those pee-pee tapes might be just 'round the corner.

Could it be that the bromance is over?!

I support this.

I'm wary though that he would expel Russians spies over an event he can't even admit the Russians were responsible for.

Seems strange.

Weird, it's not like Trump ever tries to control the news cycle to distract away from...

It's absurd that the only thing that will get Trump to take action against Russia is an interview maligning his sexual prowess.

It's a co-ordinated expulsion with Canada, the UK and other NATO and EU countries in retaliation for the Salisbury attack.

Yes, it is a ballsy move, and the first time I have seen Trump show an actual spine, against the Russians. The end result is right, but I wonder how much of this was based on the correct attitude about Russia, as opposed to simply having to work with allies, that are peeved right now, at Russia. Or perhaps even a distraction, to the fact that he's been sleeping with playmates and porn stars while married.

It's the right move, but I strongly suspect it is DESPITE Trump, not because of him.

The White House press release about this was not in Trump's name; it was in the name of the press secretary.

I tend to agree, I suspect Trump will back away from this as quickly as possible, lettig it stand, but totally unwilling to discuss it, or highlight it in any way. In other words, let the news cycle pass, and ignore it.

I can't find the article again, and would be grateful if someone could coroborate or refute this, but I heard the US expulsion was for like 4 weeks. Woo.

Why does Putin need diplomats and spies in the US when the orange man at the top is already his bitch? This move was approved by the Kremlin and will gradually be undone over the next few months.

I am completely puzzled by how the White House works.
Trump phoned Putin to congratulate him on carrying on being an effective dictator against all advice and doubled down on it on Twitter. Then the White House acts like it cares about Putin's crimes. Who is in charge and how do they manage the man-child?

While I wholeheartedly agree with the expulsion of 60 Russian diplomats I cannot stand up and applaud the President for doing this nor does it in any way, shape or form erase his chaoticness and general sloppiness as President.

This is what he's suppose to do!!!!

I agree that it’s his job, but instead of just doing it just for show (such as only a few) the Trump administration went to the extreme. Good on them. I sense Bolton’s influence here.
