#News on a Nailhead 7/9

Further confirmation CNN is run by complete lunatics.  (CNN:  Vladimir Putin charms another US president)

Bullshit was finally called on James Comey and James Clapper.  (RT:  Putin: Trump seemed 'satisfied' with my denial of Russian election meddling)

Putin's optimistic view of the discussion with Trump is highly encouraging.  (RT:  Putin: Trump different in real life than on TV, we can restore relations with US)

Trump scored well with Gorbachev.  (RT:  ‘Unpredictable’ Trump praising 1st meet with Putin ‘a good thing’– Gorbachev)

Merkel sees positivity as well.  (RT:  ‘Everyone benefits from good, honest dialogue between Russia, US’ – Merkel)

There was also better discussion between Trump, China, and Japan.  (RT:  Trump addresses North Korea 'menace' in meetings with China and Japan)

On Twitter, Trump's just another troll, but it seems he is now or is becoming a diplomat as well.

Trump just bitchslapped the anti-vaxx crew and they're pissed.  (RawStory:  Trump just announced his pick to run CDC — and anti-vaxxers feel betrayed)

Pro tip:  they're definitely betrayed and this couldn't be more amusing.

No-one likes golfers.  (Bleacher Report:  Moose Chases Golfer on Swedish Course)

The way to attack Donald Trump is not by insulting him since he has skin like a rhino.  Attack him by making damn sure Ivanka Trump is NEVER elected President.  The same applies to Chelsea Clinton who is even less qualified for much of anything.  (RT:  Ivanka Trump sits in for dad Donald at G20 leaders meeting (PHOTOS))

No chance this could be a problem.  (RT:  Eleventh Night: Bonfire built beside petrol station sparks safety fears (PHOTOS))
