    In the upper picture, President Obama no longer has his tie on (nobody else does either), people are engaged in what appears to a productive meeting. It is clear they have been there at least a couple hours and

    In the lower picture, trump's body language is that of little kid who's sitting on the floor refusing to cooperate. He has look of indignation.

    Our representative showing the world that he really is a dickhead. I'll bet the world, except the USSR & his base wished he would be impeached or forcibly removed.

    Bing search: Body language: Crossing the arms. Crossing the arms across the chest is a classic gesture of defensiveness. This defensiveness can manifest as uneasiness, shyness or insecurity. When a person feels threatened by a situation, he crosses his arms across his chest creating a barrier that helps him protect his vital organs- the lungs and the heart.

    The body language says it all; arms crossed in a defensive mode; America wake up, congress wake up, voters wake up!

    Trump as well his cronies Kudlow, Navaro and Bolton joined in to scold Canada. I lived in Canada for 9 years, so I know something about that country.

    First of all Canada is an excellent example compared to the US like:

    1) It is not as deep in debt as the US

    2) It did not start wars all over the place; or have ongoing wars or disputes

    3) It has decent healthcare for everyone

    4) It has an parlementary system in which a Prime Minister does not have the ridiculous power as a Trump does.

    5) It has a normal voting system, where only votes count, not run by lobbyists or billionaires

    6) It has helped the US in their instigated wars

    7) The trade deficit is just about none.

    8) Canada has plenty of resources which are not ruined by a Pruitt like idiot.

    I could go on and on; Trudeau is an excellent leader with "manners" which Trump does not have.

    The result will be that the G6 members, will no longer see the US as an partner and won't share their intelligence any more related to Russia and others.Furthermore they will boost their trade with others not with the US.

    Scolding all the G6 members will only have negative results in the world order; likely Putin will benefit from it and dictated such to Trump.

    To some - he who talks loudest is right. Deplorable, I know. Sad how we have fallen with our partners around the world. Used to be about leadership. Now it's about "could I profit from a large hotel in Moscow ?".

    The minions have no clue.

    Canada should slap a 50% hike on oil exported to the U.S. from their oil sands, let's see how fair the manchild can get over that. It's ridiculous that the manchild is waging a war with our northern-most neighbor, they've been with us through thick and thin. I hope the people of Canada understand that not everyone in the USA dislikes them. We just have a jerkoff in charge right now.

    I also hope the NK leader takes a swing at him and breaks his jaw so he has to be fed with a feeding tube.

    Republican strategist Steve Schmidt often unloads on Trump on MSNBC. With that, today he unloaded another highly uncomplimentary Tweet on Trump's antics at the G7.

    Follow @SteveSchmidtSES

    "TRUMP disgraced the Presidency and the United States at the G-7 summit. From his slovenly appearance to his unpreparedness, ignorance and arrogance, he beclowned himself. The Republican majority is filled with cowards who are servile supplicants to the most unfit POTUS ever".

    I think Steve speaks for many of us.

    lol...that could be considered an understatement. He dumps on trump more any other political guest on MSNBC.

    It is my perception that he reflects main stream Republicans, including a majority of Republicans elected to congress. Those elected keep their mouth shut for various reasons, but they likely hate trump just as much Steve Schmidt.

    Steve Schmidt recognizes that everything and everyone trump touches turns into cancer, so as a Republican he is shouting from the roof tops that trump is swiftly destroying the Republican party because it will become the party of bigots, conspiracy theories, obstructionists, and a shit load of F'ing crazy people like DT etc.

    I believe the silent majority of main stream Republicans are anti-trump, and they will vote against the Republican party or simply not vote during the mid-terms. My prediction is record low Republican turn out for the mid-terms, something between 25% - 50% below average for Republican voters.

    I did not hear anything from the Congress or the GOP or the DNC members; dead quiet! It looks like we've really entered "dictatorship" ; "King" Trump can do it all by himself and nobody sets him straight, except McCain who at least tries.

    In other words his cronies are well trained in loyalty by saying the same as in the military:YES Sir!

    He did not select Bolton, Kudlow, Navarro, Pence, Miller, Ross for nothing; absolute dumb FOX news trained ROBOTS, who are even more crazy than he is. At least Kudlow got an heart attack; must be the "food" Trump served.

    When Trump comes back from Singapore he will have an even bigger bully mouth then before, as well the whole GOP will bow to him. Yes the US has become a full dictatorship! Congratulations America; you deserve the total "sick medal"

    Trump’s intended goal is to have all world leaders pay obeisance to him. That this goal has the unintended consequence of destroying decades long alliances, destroying trade agreements which will damage labor even further, assisting nations overtly or covertly hostile to this country and shift world power focus to the PRC means nothing to him.

    And you heard it here first. This so-called agreement with NK will be spun by Trump and the Republican Party as a massive, excuse me, yuuuuuge achievement. He will run in 2020 if he isn’t impeached and the idiot American electorate will re-elect him whether he wins the popular vote or not.

    Sadly, imo, there will be a small change in the number of seats held by Dems in the House this year. The senate will stay in Republican control and we will continue down the path of imperial Rome.

    Lonely, absolutely correct; read all my other threads in which I made clear that he likely will never be impeached because the GOP run Congress will never allow it, regardless of all what Mueller does or has found out. It is called "the blinders on" Right now the Dem's are dead silent and don't show a "backbone" let alone a fighting spirit. Where are all the people who kept saying that the Constitution would save us? It is all the non-laws for the higher up's which got us in this position. Corruption blooms.

    Yes this country is doomed; China will take over our position in the world. This country will become an isolated banana republic "island" fighting among themselves and make it the hunger games for foreign little kids.
