Less Than Super

Yesterday’s Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki, Finland elicited varieties of shock and awe in the US and across European nations, where the consensus for President Trump’s performance was less than super. 
It could be that he is still learning on the job and simply rewriting the book on US-Russia detente in a style of his own. But many political watchers take a more critical view of the proceedings, arguing that Trump’s stance on Russia – expressed both at the NATO meetings and the press conference with Putin – is at odds with the geopolitical and economic interests of America and its allies in the European Union and elsewhere. 
While the Trump administration’s socially conservative and pro-business strategies remain popular with his home base, foreign relations are a different story. Poor relations with long-time allies, tariffs and trade wars have a price.

Non Truth Decay. Agreed. Still enjoying that misspelled speech moment about "the server" thing. No kidding. That was about something serious.

This your truly decayed, from Helsinki, in the long hot summer of the year 2018.
