The Russians are still using better perfected hypnosis/drug combinations to — for one super important thing — take control of President Donald John Trump’s thought process in the service of Russia’s (and thus Putin’s) world objectives.
This indoctrination activity was hidden under rumors of some sort of pee, pee activity period, which I’m sure Putin found to be an extremely amusing cover, fitting right in with Trump’s MO.
This hypnotic indoctrination would account for Trump’s many unrecorded phone calls and meetings with Putin and his associates. It is necessary that post hypnotic suggestions be perotically reinforced and updated as Russian needs evolve. With a single word Trump could be put back un a trance state open to new instructions.
PS Trump’s shallow mind makes him the perfect subject for this sort of hypnotic mind control.
