What does Putin know that we don't?

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Says Trump Might Not Sit Out Full Term


U.S. President Donald Trump may not serve out his four-year term, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on state television Sunday as bilateral ties continue to spiral following the eviction of Russian diplomats in San Francisco.

“Not all American presidents have reached the end of their term,” Zakharova told the host of the state-run Rossia-1 television channel Vladimir Solovyov. “It could be worth remembering, considering the government we are dealing with in today’s historical times."

Her comments to the channel’s flagship "Voskresny Vecher" (Sunday Evening) program followed on a remark from Solovyov that “no American president has ever gone this far.”

The comment marks a significant departure from the tone struck by Russian state media leading up to Trump's election.

The program aired two days after Russian diplomats vacated the consulate in San Francisco on the U.S. State Department’s orders. The move came after Moscow instructed the U.S. Embassy and consulates in Russia to cut their staff numbers by Sept. 1.

The report has an embedded link to the video of this clip from Russian TV. Not too surprisingly it is in Russian and Google doesn't have voice translation on my computer (yet).

And if anyone questions it

I'll have my translator take a look.

It certainly can be taken to be a (not-so) veiled threat.

Per my Russian wife:

Maria Zakharova is the "soft side" of the Kremlin, both intelligent and charming. Zakharova suggested Trump will face impeachment.

The host of the show, Vladimir Solovyov whom my wife has nicknamed "Fuckface," warned Zakharova that she'll be front page news with that suggestion. Yuk-yuk-yuk.

Solovyov and Putin are best buddies. No stinking fake news on Russian TV.

My analysis: Putin continues to foment chaos. Just watch. Before long, members of the American left will begin approving of Putin because he's taking a hard stance with Trump.

The main beef expressed by Zakharova and Solovyov is the seemingly random closure of Russia's San Francisco consulate ordered by Trump. Each agreed, the expulsion of diplomats had been "balanced," so each asked, why the SF closure? It upset the balance.

This balance is very important to the Russkis. Seriously. It's due to their paranoia, victim mentality, and in general their ubiquitous inferiority complex..

Moreover, no one can convince me that back channel communications aren't ongoing between Putin and Kimmy.

I don't foresee Democrats changing their opinion of Putin.
