Well, isn’t that nice.

During a call with Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, President Trump offered to help Russia combat the wildfires currently raging across Siberia, the Kremlin has revealed.

In the call between the leaders – which took place during the first night of the Democratic debates – Trump is said to have offered Russia emergency assistance to help stem the blaze which has now engulfed in excess of 7 million acres of Siberian woodland.

Putin expressed his thanks to the president for the ‘kind gesture’ but said for the moment such assistance wouldn’t be necessary.

Trump was told that a fleet Russian military aircraft have been deployed to extinguish the blaze, but Putin would take Trump up on the offer if additional support is needed at a later time.

Gee, how sweet of Trump.

However, I am not exactly sure what the logistics would be for sending American firefighters deep inside Russian territory. 

I tend to think that Putin would not be terribly open to that possiblity. 

And not to be too selfish, but where in the hell was the federal support to help Alaska fight their forest fires?

I mean we had hundreds of them burning this summer, and they are not all out yet. 

We could have certainly used more help as well. 

Or does Trump only offer help to those folks who help him to steal elections? 

But don’t think that Trump completely skipped watching last night’s debate, because he certainly did not. 

Look I hate to say it, but I cannot even blame Trump for getting bored and dialing up his buddy to talk about anything other than the debate. 

Last night was not exactly riveting television. 

Still, couldn’t he have at least called up an actual American ally to shoot the shit with? 

I mean what’s Boris Johnson doing that time of night? 

Never mind, bad example.

    So, CA was rudely told to “take the forests”, blaming them.for their fires.

    But Russia – which is not american territory – was offered the world, plus hookers and cupcakes.

    So Babcock is replaced by Stevens. Babcock use to be with MEA. If you take and loop in a wire to ‘leech’ electric from another pole, then when you try to ‘zap’ it and it loops around to the ‘leecher’ that is KARMA.
    So that means MEA is going to be owing someone a chunk of change. Arrest the leecher. Babcock will have to answer to federal investigators of why he ‘suddenly’ resigned along with another executive? Hu Sarah?

    We are respected again around the world?? Maybe to your face the leaders who coddle you, dumb@ss.
    What they say behind your back, a different story. Try being a regular tourist and what is said about “your” America and how we would elect such a putz.
    WE didn’t, now did we??.

    You can bet the farm that forest fires were not the real reason for the phone call.

      The breakneck speed with which McConnell has ushered young—and often unqualified—right-wing judges through the Senate confirmation process “should send shockwaves across the nation,” the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights tweeted Wednesday.

      MSNBC anchor Steve Kornacki reported “at this very moment Donald Trump’s own aides are on edge. They are concerned about what might happen tonight in Cincinnati. This is Donald Trump’s first campaign rally since Greenville, North Carolina, where the crowd infamously erupted in those chants of ‘send her back,’ to no objection from the president.”

    I don’t want my tax dollars to pay for helping the enemy, putin has plenty of money, most of which he stole from the russian people, let them fight there own fires.

    If trump wants to send help, why doesn’t he go over there and help. like he did on 9/11, and stay there.

    You do not suppose he would have said Russia if your listening to me, find a way for me to win, over these Democratic party presidential candidates, who ever comes out on top, in this group of candidates?

  10. Now what? August 1, 2019 at 9:42 pm

    Well that chat didn’t end well. BBC news reports ‘US pulls out of nuclear treaty with Russia’. So what is that about?
