The two-part documentary Bosom Bullies: Trump and Putin recounts the labyrinth of accusations and evidence that may shed light on the complex relationship shared between two of the globe's most consequential leaders.

The Russia story has dominated the first term of President Donald Trump and has been readily dismissed by both leaders. But watchdogs have long been laser focused on what they believe are the tell-tale signs of collusion. The filmmakers certainly spend time outlining these charges, but the film largely revolves around the similarities between the two men, and how they may bridge the gaps of history to mutual advantage in the future.

Part one opens with a brief history of U.S. and Russia relations, which had intensified significantly during the Obama administration. Warning signs pointed to another Cold War.

As evidenced by the clips presented in the film, Russia made their preference for Trump known prior to election night through their state media. The two men shared some of the same enemies. Their proponents respond favorably to each leader's love of bluster and provocation.

The scrutiny only intensified following Trump's election. The FBI made it their mission to investigate the notion of collusion and meddling as fully as possible. Conspiracy charges were issued against a slew of Russian players. The film covers the imprisonment of various Trump confidantes in relation to the investigations as well. This ongoing dynamic has divided Americans along political lines and aggravated the power structure in Moscow.

The filmmakers are as delicate as possible in attempting to give voice to both sides of the argument. It relies on an irrefutable timeline of events, as well as insights supplied by reporters and insiders who represent both the American and Russian perspectives. Some of the interview subjects claim the cries of meddling are ridiculous while others see real fire among the smokey veils of suspicion.

A large portion of the content found in Bosom Bullies: Trump and Putin consists of the headlines that have plastered newspapers and television media for several years. But there is instructive value in witnessing all the pieces of the puzzle interlocked to form a larger, more cohesive narrative.

No truer a word has ever been spoken as those spoken by Putin. He called the Democrats, "WORSE THAN PROSTITUTES"!! To this day, Pelosi, Schumer and Schiff still believe their RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA HOAX. "WORSE THAN PROSTITUTES", is an understatement - these Democrats are LOWER THAN THE LOWEST SCUM IN THE WORLD.

Peace is not good for business. Defense spending goes up. The real enemies are the brokers and lobby groups managing public opinion and defense spending. 3 trillion in defense spending on the US side in 2021. While all the attention is on this bromance continues no one talks about this. 11 billion was given to media groups when the geriatric soiled the white house.

Who has been a President and NOT done some kind wrong? NOT A GOD DAMN ONE! If you are looking for a Boy Scout in a politician, best go find that person who has done no wrong of any kind and convince them to run and you best get that GoFundMe acct going 6 years ago and that is IF they dont take your money first and get that person to win the election then all of you who say this person is a criminal, that person is bad can stop bitching like little kids who aint getting their way.

Strange. No in depth documentaries on Joe Bidet and his Crime Family.
While Slow Joe Bidet is on his knees servicing his Masters (China), we the American People continue to suffer and pay for his gross incompetency and mental psychosis

Trump and Putin are both fellators in crime. Got to keep an eye on these two criminals as they try to steal our election again. The old fart is up to his tricks again because he knows he can't win an election that isn't rigged.

Russia-gate is CIA warmongering propaganda lies. U.S. oligarchs and plutocrats own Trump, not Russia.
