'Don't fall asleep in the meeting and give Putin my warmest regards': Trump offers pithy advice to Biden ahead of his meeting with Russian president next week, and claims his own summit was a WIN

#1  Masterful

Also, Putin insisted on live transmission. No TelePrompTer or earpieces.
Will Pres. Asterisk comply?
Posted by: Ulemble Hupolutch5103 || 06/11/2021 8:59 Comments || Top||

#2  Gotta wonder if Putin meeting with Joe is all for show and the real meeting with Baraq will take place later in secrecy.
Posted by: Abu Uluque || 06/11/2021 13:04 Comments || Top||

#3  I just hope this isn't a rerun of Kennedy-Khrushchev in 1961 that led to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban missile crisis, etc.
Posted by: Tom || 06/11/2021 15:11 Comments || Top||

#4 
Joe, more advise "Double up on your Depends and don't let Putin pat your butt. And oh, don't sniff Putin's interpreters hair."

#5 
Don't get distracted by Putin's Supporters either.

#6  Wouldn't doubt the main topic of convo will be to which side of the Mississippi the Obama/Biden cartel are willing to sell.

#7  If putin offers soup or tea, be sure to eat it. Eat it all.

#2  It's all in the terms of the contract and the fear of your lawyers.
Posted by: magpie || 06/11/2021 8:17 Comments || Top||

#3  People want stuff. Whenever anyone points out that millennials don't own cars, point out that the time payment on their $1000.00+ iPhone is the new car payment. They've just set their sights lower.

Kim Jong-un calls K-pop a 'vicious cancer' and threatens anyone caught listening to it with 15 YEARS in a labour camp

#1  Mr. Kim, I actually agree with your assessment of the music.

Not the punishment, though.
Posted by: Mullah Richard || 06/11/2021 9:45 Comments || Top||

#2  Same with Boy Bands.
Posted by: Angstrom || 06/11/2021 9:47 Comments || Top||

#3  Not sure about the punishment either; does anyone who listens to K-Pop even know how to labor?

To be fair, when I want to piss the kids off, I put on Top Pop Hits of the 90s.

#4  'Afternoon Delight' - Starland Vocal Band on a loop.

Serious torture.
Posted by: Mullah Richard || 06/11/2021 12:09 Comments || Top||

#5  For the kids, for radio playlist accuracy, it is the song Bullet with Butterfly Wings, followed by a random Oasis song, repeat.
Posted by: swksvolFF || 06/11/2021 12:59 Comments || Top||

#6  He's not wrong.

#7 
I say old chap, 15 years is a bit harsh, a what, were you recently jilted in your romantic endeavors by a musician?

#8  the Gallagher from Oasis that pretty much said Harry needs to shut the fuck up is my new hero wolf. And as you know, that's probably exactly how he said it.
Posted by: Chris || 06/11/2021 14:10 Comments || Top||

#9  Most likely because the SK group is popular with the younger NK generation this is a no no.
Posted by: Blackbeard Barnsmell6454 || 06/11/2021 16:14 Comments || Top||

#10  I'm ok with this
Posted by: Rex Mundi || 06/11/2021 17:47 Comments || Top||

#11  Which boy band refused to bugger him?
Posted by: Rob Crawford || 06/11/2021 21:01 Comments || Top||

#12  Can we trade some BLM members for a few K-pop recruits?

#1  Skid - you're killing us, man. Just give a little whiff of what's going on (I think that ought to be standard); Daily Mail blows.

#2 

You heard him everyone.

It is Trumps fault that he lied and was caught.

#3  Adam Schiff talking about breaking rules -- priceless chutzpah.

#4  Accuse your target of what you have done.
Posted by: swksvolFF || 06/11/2021 13:18 Comments || Top||

#5  Considering Sessions and Barr prosecuted no one during their DOJ reigns it would be ironic if they get prosecuted.

#1  "Republicans claim" - good one, asswipes
Posted by: Raj || 06/11/2021 1:54 Comments || Top||

#2  Well, inflation was kept artificially low by the Fed for a long time, then they went all-in with money printing. Only a moron would be surprised.
Posted by: M. Murcek || 06/11/2021 7:11 Comments || Top||

#3  And, yeah, everything is a wartime footing, Manhattan Project, moonshot inside the Beltway now.

#7  Well, land, they're not making any more except at Mauna Kea and man made Chinese military islands.
Posted by: M. Murcek || 06/11/2021 9:56 Comments || Top||

#8  Sorry, meant Mauna Loa. I've visited both. Went to Mauna Kea to see the Keck telescopes. Went to Mauna Loa to see the lava.

#9  ^ Actually, these days it's Kilauea but we get your point.

#10  Inflation is here and it will bite. You can't get something for nothing even when you own the printing press.
