In other news, Ivanka Trump's clothing brand is shutting down because no one is buying it, which is interesting for reasons, but this detail really caught my attention: the brand only has 18 employees (in the United States) according to a company statement.

Meanwhile, Russian spy Maria Butina reportedly spoke at a fundraiser in May of 2016 that was attended by Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin. Butina gave a speech about freedom and guns.

Finally, it looks like Putin may not actually accept Trump's invitation to the White House. A Kremlin spokeperson says Trump and Putin can continue meeting at international events, like the G-20.

    There is no Second Amendment in Russia. Gun laws in Russia are quite restrictive and require state licensing.
    Automatic weapons like the AR-15 are banned. How is it that Russian intelligence is spending so much time, effort and money cozying up to the NRA in the US?

      Much the same way they use bots to troll social media sites like Facebook. To get inside the heads of their targets.

        They want America to be torn apart. Much as the Soviet Union fell to pieces, they want that to happen to the United States. Never underestimate the need for people like Putin to seek revenge.

    The Trump family are the ultimate grifters and a third of the country is either too stupid to see through it or are willing to enable it because anything is better than electing Democrats, up to and including literal treason. The country be damned.

    The entire Republican party is now a Russian agent.

    I don’t know what to make of Putin turning down the invitation. I have a hard time believing there’s a Republican alive that voted for Trump but wouldn’t vote for him again merely because of Putin.

      IrishGrrrl has it pretty much right about Putin turning down Drumpf’s invitation to the White House. And as to would Republicans not vote for Drumpf again because of Putin, well you just answered your own question in your first sentence. 😉

    The dog comes to the master, not the other way around.

  • Putin is obviously smarter than Trump because he knows it would create all kinds of good ads for the Dems leading up to the mid-term elections. Trump is the only one who doesn’t get that hurting the GOP hurts him.
