My Fair Vlady

From abcNEWS:

Both Russia and the United States declared Friday’s first meeting between President Donald Trump and President Vladimir Putin a success. But hours after the two sat down at the G20 Summit in Germany, the White House has found itself fending off criticism Trump had been too soft on Putin, as the Kremlin seemed to outflank his administration in shaping how the encounter is being presented.

Toady Foster

From VANITY FAIR:

On Monday, Trump convened his first full Cabinet meeting since taking office, gathering the heads of every major government agency for a press gaggle around the elliptical mahogany table that occupies a prominent place in the West Wing. Traditionally, the media is present only at the beginning of such meetings, during which the president makes a brief statement and a few photos are snapped before a review of the administration’s progress continues behind closed doors. Trump tried something a little different.

Bond, WTF Kind of Bond Do They Have?

From REUTERS:

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson plans to skip an April 5-6 meeting of NATO foreign ministers for a U.S. visit by the Chinese president and will travel to Russia later in the month, U.S. officials said on Monday, a step allies may see as putting Moscow’s concerns ahead of theirs.

…snip…

The decisions to skip the NATO meeting and to visit Moscow risked feeding a perception that Trump may be putting U.S. dealings with big powers before those of smaller nations that depend on Washington for their security, said two former U.S. officials.

Umm, ya think?

Wayne’s Whirled

From The San Diego Union Tribune:

Prior to becoming secretary of state under President Donald Trump, Rex Tillerson used the alias “Wayne Tracker” to exchange emails about climate change while he was CEO of ExxonMobil, a New York prosecutor revealed in a letter filed in court Monday.

The letter by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman alleges that Tillerson used his middle name, Wayne, in an email address bearing the alias “to send and receive materials regarding important matters, including those concerning to the risk-management issues related to climate change.”
