President Donald Trump’s relationship with Vladimir Putin, has taken a bit of a rocky turn ever since Russian provoked a clash with Ukrainian boats, seizing two gunships and a tugboat that had been off the coast of the Russian-annexed Crimean peninsula and taking their crews prisoner.
Likely convinced by his national security team to finally make some kind of show of defiance to the Russian dictator, Trump canceled the meeting that the two leaders had planned for the G-20 meeting today in Argentina in a performative Twitter outburst:
….in Argentina with President Vladimir Putin. I look forward to a meaningful Summit again as soon as this situation is resolved!
— Donald J. Trump
Today, Trump and Putin were in the same room at the G-20, and photographers captured a very telling look from the Russian dictator towards his American counterpart — one that famous American film director Judd Apatow mocked in a perfect quip on Twitter.

With all the news breaking about Trump’s plan to gift Putin the penthouse of Trump Tower Moscow and his personal lawyer’s incriminating admission to prosecutors, things are about to escalate dramatically in the Trump-Russia probe — and neither of these two are going to be walking away unscathed.
