I’m not prepared to count Putin out of this equation.

He had two hours alone with the president.
If I were him I’d have filled his head with nonsense (ok, more accurately, reaffirmed the nonsense already in his head).

“Don’t trust cabinet officials, they are in the line of succession and want your job.”
“Don’t trust the phones theUSSS people are giving you, they are bugged.”
“You and I are men of power, men of action. All women want to be with us and all men want to be us. I will tell you the truth because there is nothing I need from you. Everyone else will lie.”
“There is a huge shadow government trying to destroy you.”
“You will come up with fantastic solutions. Lesser men will try to convince you that they cannot be implemented. They say this most often because they will lose their jobs if you solve the problem.”

There is no doubt Putin told Trump exactly what Trump always wants to hear: anything that feeds his narcissism. As long as T thinks another person recognizes his 'genius' and superiority then the other person is 'smart'...not as smart as he is, though...and gets as much respect as T is able to give anyone who isn't him. Trump sees himself and Putin as almost equals but admires and is envious that Putin has been able to take control of Russia and have complete power and control without answering to anyone. Trump believes in the Divine Right of Trump.
