In an excerpt of an interview set to run Sunday before the Super Bowl, Trump was asked by Fox News' Bill O'Reilly if he "respects" Putin.
"I do respect him. I respect a lot of people but that doesn't mean I'm going to get along with him," Trump replied. "He's a leader of his country. I say it's better to get along with Russia than not."
Trump added that if Russia helps fight against ISIS and "Islamic terrorists all over the world" then it's "a good thing."
O'Reilly, however, followed up by saying that Putin "is a killer."
"There are a lot of killers," Trump responded, "We've got a lot of killers. What do you think? Our country's so innocent?"
You know you would think that while there is so much discussion about Russia interfering in the election to win you the White House that you would at least PRETEND that you are not Vladimir Putin's little bitch.
Remember this is the guy who is supposed to be the great defend er of America and its ideals who just compared this country to a man who kills journalists and has his political enemies assassinated.
"What do you think? Our country's so innocent?"
Comparatively speaking you bet your ass I do!
