Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye, the United States President has no balls!

After 540 days in office, it definitely can be said, Donald J. Trump has no balls. During the 2016 election, Trump was lampooned by Republican challenger Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida) who intimated that Trump’s small hands equated to a lack of male sexual prowess.

A point Trump went to great lengths to explain away. Few believed he was telling the truth when he asked the American people to believe him when he said he did not have any issue with his manhood. Anyone who has read a few books and has done a little thinking finds it hard to believe much, if anything, that comes out of this President’s mouth.

Be that as it may, if there was any doubt that Trump had at least one ball, it was smashed today in his meeting with Putin.

Going into this summit with Putin, Trump had been briefed about the findings of Robert Muller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. In short, actions that are tantamount to outright acts of war.

Just the thought of a foreign power carrying out acts to destabilize American democracy and place a President in charge of the country who would cater to the whelms of the Kremlin, is cause to mobilize the Second Fleet to its highest alert status and deploy it to blockade the Black Sea.

Not only did Trump fail to aggressively confront Putin with the information charged in the criminal indictments against 12 Russian military officers that alleged these officers had hacked into the Clinton Campaign server, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee server and had attempted to hack their way into two state election servers, he apologized and blamed the attack on the United States.

Let’s state this another way, Trump, who never apologizes for anything, offered Putin an apology claiming America was partly to blame for the Russian hacking because the DCCC and the Clinton Campaign computers were not safe enough to withstand the cyber attack from a foreign adversary.

He tucked his tail between his legs, “skinning and grinning” the whole while in the presence of Putin like a giddy school girl swooning over the star football player after a Friday night high school game, or a 1930's Negro, hat in hand, shuffling along to survive the indignities of segregation.

Gee Wiz, the United States President has no balls.
