‘They’re re-watching the pee tape’: Internet ponders just what Trump and Putin were chatting about for so long
President Donald Trump’s meeting with Russian strongman Vladimir Putin ran over two hours — a surprising amount of time for a president with a notoriously short attention span.
As the media anxiously waited with bated breath for what promised to be a boilerplate — and specifics-free — announcement after the meeting, social media users had their own ideas why the meeting went into overtime.
Long-anticipated Trump-Putin meeting was scheduled for 30-40 minutes, ended up lasting 2 1/2 hours…hmm #uspoli

Apparently Trump is having a very long meeting with his boss. I wonder if this will reflect poorly on his quarterly review?

Of course the trump-putin meeting is running past 30 minutes. It takes a long time for Putin to show Trump all the dirt he has on him.

It's amazing how long a meeting can take when you have to translate every 140 characters, and then Trump forgets everything that happened. https://t.co/E5U9X9mRY7
