Russia analyst: I was just in Moscow and people are laughing as Putin plays ‘that fool’ Donald Trump

Asked by host Sheinelle Jones about Putin’s letter where Trump described Putin’s thoughts as “so correct,” Russia expert Nina Khrushcheva said Trump is playing “right into Putin’s hands.”

“I was just in Moscow and the Russians are saying ‘Look at those fools, look at their their democracy.’ Absolutely,” she said. “‘How could America lecture us on any development, institutions, human rights, democracy, rhetoric when they just elected Donald Trump. He’s such a fool. He’s such a bully. That’s what America deserves and we’re going to take advantage of it.’ And that’s how Russians feel about it, and now it’s taking shape with letters from Vladimir Putin to Donald Trump with their exchange on potential nuclear armament and whatnot.”

1. Well, yeah. That's been blindingly obvious to everybody but Trump.

Putin is much smarter than Trump, and he quickly figured out that he could play Trump like a Stradivarius by flattering him.

13. They didn't care because he promised

he'd cut their taxes, throw out the Mexicans, prevent the Muslims from coming in, and kick those people off welfare.

14. Exactly. Trump's support came more from what

he would TAKE AWAY or DENY others than what he would do for his gullible voters:

Take away Hillary's freedom - "Lock her up!"
Take away Obamacare
Take away "socialist" programs - not that his voters have a clue what that truly means
Build the wall - deny immigrants
Muslim registry - take away religious freedom for a group that his voters generally characterize and dismiss as 'terrorists'.

2. Its embassaring.

That a country with a smaller GDP then California had more influence on our election then that state. The electoral college is a joke.

5. Are they dancing in the streets like they did on 9/11?

“How could America lecture us on any development, institutions, human rights, democracy, rhetoric when they just elected Donald Trump."

From the Russians: Mic Drop.

15. That group of voters dominated this site and targeted posters such as myself for months

 

and they are slowly trickling back in here.

I have had 2 posts hidden recently for stating the simple truth about Sanders never having a steady job until he was 40.

That is a literal fact.

That anyone would alert it, let alone vote to HIDE it, means this tiny group is still having a negative effect.

That'd be your next president.
