. when i taklked to the hillary clinton people and bush people that dealt with him in the george w. bush administration, most of them came to the conclusion that he tends to spin things in dramatic public settings that make him look really good. does that mean he lies every time? of course not. does that mean that he spins situations to make himself look good, i think if he was a more honest person, there would be good and bad in this record and you never get that from jim comey. >> that is a very fair point and the fact that you are the lone person here -- >> we're not against you at all. >> i was told to come on so company talk about this. >> we value your voice. >> this is what we do for a living. >> i've known you for a long time. i know that's true. but the point is, that you said about comey and kind of his m.o., i mean, you go back to -- again, i'm not talking about the voracity of what he said but his style is very dramatic. that testimony that he gave back during the bush administration talking about the hospital bed moment and how he threatened to resign when he was deput

george w. bush, have found is that at the end of the day, the united states and russia's strategic interests are too contradictory because of russia's alliances, partnerships, and strategic claims on the territory around it that it calls its near abroad. and what i see looming right up ahead in this theater of operations that trump is trying to secure partnership with putin on in syria is the fact that russia has a soft alliance and a nuclear partnership with iran. >> but let's throw the pictures up just quickly and here's my final question. we've been talking so much about substance. just body language of these two, respect, leaning in. back to your notion of putin's charm. do you think it's possible that president trump, given how long this meeting went, was charmed by this former kgb man? >> it looks like that trump -- and again, it's very hard to -- we're only speculating here. it looks like that trump has been somewhat charmed by putin, but i think, looking at the body language, less so than george w. bush was in his first few meetings with putin. >> interesting. interesting.
