This was in response to remarks Putin made at a press conference yesterday during which he went on the attack against Democrats while claiming that only Moscow knew that Donald Trump would win this election.Vladimir Putin said today about Hillary and Dems: "In my opinion, it is humiliating. One must be able to lose with dignity." So true!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 24, 2016
To be clear, this is our new president-elect joining with the Russian dictator who helped undermine our election process to help get him win the presidency, slamming Democratic Americans for being unhappy with how this election was stolen from them.
Here is how a former US Ambassador to Russia put it:
You know what gets me is that Trump is not even pretending that he is not working in cahoots with Vladimir Putin.So now the President-elect and an autocrat in the Kremlin team up to trash an American. Unprecedented. Will Republicans speak up? https://t.co/Vef1g5tiFK— Michael McFaul (@McFaul) December 24, 2016
In fact he is openly advertising their relationship like some high school freshman dating the cool college guy.
And this is the guy that is supposed to help this country maintain its position as a super power for the next four years. We will be lucky not to be annexed by Russia and renamed "Western Siberia."
