 Bibi Backs Trump — on Putin

Since Donald Trump said that if Vladimir Putin praises him, he would return the compliment, Republican outrage has not abated.

Arriving on Capitol Hill to repair ties between Trump and party elites, Gov. Mike Pence was taken straight to the woodshed.

John McCain told Pence that Putin was a “thug and a butcher,” and Trump’s embrace of him intolerable.

Said Lindsey Graham: “Vladimir Putin is a thug, a dictator…who has his opposition killed in the streets,” and Trump’s views bring to mind Munich.

Putin is an “authoritarian thug,” added “Little Marco” Rubio.

What causes the Republican Party to lose it whenever the name of Vladimir Putin is raised?

  1. If one wants a little insight into the Russian mindset, let's do an experiment with the above map. First, imagine that you are a Russian. Now change the flag from NATO (in reality USA) and replace all of them with the Nazi swastika. Remember too, given the corrupt deals of our own government, the broken promises and treaties, the illegal wars and invasions of other countries the Russians do have reason to fear and hate US. Going too far in speaking up for the Russians? I've got only two words to reply: Hillary Clinton.

    1. I thought the Russians were our enemy until Obama.
