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.”
Asked to chime in on whether Putin’s relationship with Trump will hinder an investigation into Russian hacking of the the election, intelligence analyst Malcolm Nance said of course it would and laughed at how easily Trump can be manipulated.
“I don’t think there will be any accountability with the regards of the Russian hacking against the DNC or even violating the entirety of the U.S. electoral process. He has benefited from that,” Nance explained. “He’s going to shut down any investigation if it implicates him or his campaign.”
I was going to avoid taking about "He who must not be named" today, but knowing how many of us will be talking about politics around the dinner table tonight, possibly with that conservative aunt or uncle, I thought this was a timely reminder of what a colossal fuck up this election turned out to be.
Remember, every single time that anybody brings up that idiot's name, all you have to do is remind them that he is Vladimir Putin's choice to run this country.
