In a reminder that Macron's victory by no means spells the end of the anti-establishment wave, Le Pen took to a stage in Paris and hailed her "historic" result - the best for her National Front in any presidential vote - and called on "all patriots" to join her in opposition to the new president.

Russians buy US dog food as an example of what an utter failure Putin has been. Rather than economic diversification, Russians ride the price of oil, up, or down.

you posted a potential national leader shaking putins hand and imply this says something about them. well, maybe not, maybe shaking putins hand is just something a potential national leader has to do from time to time.

i am not a trumpeteer, i dont celebrate him as a great leader. i dont think he is as dangerous as people have made out, nor will he make america great again, overall i think the whole thing is hysterical. i have called out a lot of liberal left wingers whose behaviour has been absolutely appalling.

i dont see what russias economy has to do with anything. if it does, can you explain what it means when obama and both clintons were seen shaking his hand? maybe its less to do with specific support for certain candidates, and more because its just something a national leader, or potential leader, has to do from time to time.
Thanks from Sabcat and Toefoot
