Last Friday on Bold TV, we were joined by Lisa Dickey and Maria Snegovaya, women who are both well-versed in American-Russian affairs, to talk about Trump’s relationship with Putin.
Lisa is an American journalist, writer and ghost writer, who began writing in the ’90s in Russia. For her most recent book, Lisa took three trips to Russia, tracking down the same people each time over a period of 20 years to find out how their lives had changed. She interviewed people in 11 cities, exploring changes from technology to social norms. Her book, “Bears in the Streets: Three Journeys Across a Changing Russia” showcases Russian citizens’ positive perceptions of Putin.
Born and raised in Russia, Maria is an expert on Russian politics and an outspoken Putin critic. She’s a columnist at Russia’s Business Daily Vedomosti based in Moscow and a Ph.D. candidate at Columbia University.
Their discussion with Carrie and Clay was centered around the relationship between Russia and America, and what this means for our countries moving forward. All of this is especially relevant for an America living under the Trump administration.
Maria was quick to state how the perception of America is changing for Russians, and they are being fed information that improves their opinion on America through television propaganda. She pointed out, “90 percent of the Russians receive their news from Russian state TV channels, and you can see a very strong correlation between what the TV tells you and how you feel about the United States.”
In terms of Russia’s perception of U.S. presidents, Lisa talked about conversations she had with people in Russia about President Obama: “[The Russians] hated Barack Obama so much. And I was really astonished to hear that it was not just that they didn’t like him or they didn’t like his policies, they were kind of repelled by him.”
But concerning President Trump, Maria said:
“First of all, the Russians do not laugh at Trump, they celebrate him. There was a huge celebration all across Russia during the inauguration…because the Russian[s] expect the U.S. administration to deliver on sanctions, and improve their relationship with Russia, and they’re communicating this message. They hoped Trump would win…and they do hope the relationship will improve. There has got to be something going on between Putin and Trump because the Russian media has been remarkably biased toward Trump.”

NYC. Striving to reveal truth while offering a voice to the forgotten.
“There has got to be something going on between Putin and Trump because the Russian media has been remarkably biased toward Trump.”
And there you have the entire purpose of this article: to insinuate that Putin and Trump know each other, share identical goals, and are in cahoots with one another to bring down America. A craftier writer would have at least written a lengthier article with more innuendos to herd people into believing Trump is anti-American.
BTW, American patriots see through the lamestream media lies and LOVE Trump. The 24/7 fake news won’t change that.
Well said! Our lamestream media is biggest propaganda machine on the planet. To bad they can’t see past their own B.S.
