Putin ‘ALPHA POSTURING’ shows TRUTH of Trump relationship: Body language expert reveals all

What did the expert say about their Helsinki press conference?

“If the [UK prime minister] May/Trump summit looked chilly, this Trump/Putin meeting looked buried under a thick layer of perma-frost.

“Both men arrived performing the kind of alpha posturing you normally see in a boxing ring, swaggering with puffed chests and in Trump’s case a mouth clamp plus what was bordering on a scowl to camera as both pulled at their jackets in what is commonly a ‘prepare to fight’ ritual.

“In the room for the photo-call though they looked more like a sullen, divorcing couple at crisis counseling.

“Putin was especially sphinx-like, returning little of the sparse eye contact he received from Trump and maintaining a poker face even after Trump’s ‘soccer’ flattery was being translated for him.

“Trump sat in his usual ‘Trump Slump’ pose with his legs splayed and his fingers in ‘downward steeple’ position to register macho dominance but this time his fingertips tapped together throughout which is a sign of impatience.

    Much tough talking behind doors, I would imagine. Putin is only 5’5″ or 5’6″. Trump is big. Russia is weaker than they seem. Demographics against them, surrounded on the south by Muslim states.

      Yes. It was a tough session, no need to carry it out from podium. Hence wariness and nervousness. Putin agreed to nothing? Won’t give up easily. But knows what Trump will do, believes Trump, a man sent to do a man’s job. First such experience for Putin. From anyone, probably. He can’t dispatch this enemy as he does domestic opponents. THAT is my scenario.
