This is telling. White House staff must now walk on the same “egg-shells” as the Boss, when it comes to Russia:
Don’t make Putin mad.
Trump tells aides not to talk publicly about Russia policy moves

President Donald Trump’s national security advisers spent months trying to convince him to sign off on a plan to supply new U.S. weapons to Ukraine to aid in the country’s fight against Russian-backed separatists, according to multiple senior administration officials.
Yet when the president finally authorized the major policy shift, he told his aides not to publicly tout his decision, officials said. Doing so, Trump argued, might agitate Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to the officials.
“He doesn’t want us to bring it up,” one White House official said. “It is not something he wants to talk about.”
The White House declined to comment.
It’s a good thing Trump doesn’t gamble at his own Casinos — the guy’s got enough “tells” that he would have gone broke long ago, if he were a regular gambler.
Bad thing is, this same guy is constantly “gambling” with America’s future — with every constant erratic, chaos decision he makes next.
… as long as they don’t “agitate” the Boss’ Boss.
The odds of that NOT happening — are extremely long.
Afterall, we have a certified grinning-Idiot steering the ship … of state.
Need further evidence, Trump confirmed he had called Putin to “congratulate him on his electoral victory.”
Yes Boss, right away Boss. Whatever you say.
