Three years in, it's obvious to even the dullest and most amateurish political leader that the way to get what you want from Trump is to apply liberal amounts of flattery and general sucking up.

Witness Zelelnsky. A "perfect conversation" indeed.*

Edit: this thread get 3 or 4 posts a day, if it's lucky, so I didn't bother to quote gustav. Oh, well.

* Here's the conversation, for any who might be interested. Zelensky's background clearly served him in good stead in dealing with Trump, whose narcissism blinds him to sarcasm, if delivered deadpan enough:

Downer had the good sense :shock: to bring an embassy staffer with him to the drinks session, so has a reliable witness. That report sent back to the AUS government is solid.

hmm but Downer is old school tie Liberal, not the Evangelical Right - may well get thrown under. (Yes it is on the cv btw)

Wonder if Scummo thinks Trump is the second coming too ? Certainly got schmoozed enough on his little visit.

"Fishnet" Downer is a grandee of the (not so) Liberal Party. He's very well connected and almost certainly has a lot of dirt on the internal machinations of his party. He was also a diplomat of long standing before he went into parliament. Throwing him under the bus might cause a fairly large erruption.

Alexander Downer informed the Brits of a conversation with George Papadopolus, in which the latter told him some dirt was "about to come out" on Hillary Clinton. This was back in 2016, during the US election campaign.

This was one of the things that set off what ended up as the Mueller investigation, which Trump is desperate to delegitimize. He presumably couldn't get Jeff Sessions to cooperate, but now that he's appointed an Attorney General who considers himself Trump's personal attorney, he has him flying around the world, trying to get different governments to collaborate on the project.

Papadopolous has since claimed he knew all along he was being "set up", and was trolling Downer.

Am I correct in thinking the Australian government has thrown Downer under the bus?

So when the leader of the free world gets in a fix he calls on... ScoMo?
How the fuck did Australia get dragged in to this whole shitstorm?
I know Trump's desperate but come on!
