Does Trump even know that Putin has had people killed? Asking for a friend.

Question to trump. Who do you trust, the fbi etc or Putin regarding Russia involvement?

Trump: but Hillary emails, and Putin told me very strongly that he did not have anything to do. So yeah I believe Putin. Because he told me very strongly.

Lol

There are a couple of things at play here. Leftist is a term used by those in the general political spectrum where I fall to identify ourselves as separate from liberals. In this particular context, what is happening is that, like many on the right, Gzusfrk does not understand the many differences between the variety of viewpoints to his left. Everyone's exactly the same, against what he likes and believes in.

One thing that has been amusing has been the inability of some of those on the right to be able to describe the politics of someone like Ocasio-Cortez. They've spent so much time calling Barack Obama's center-right economic policies "rampant socialism" that they have no vocabulary left for actual socialism when it's put in front of their faces.

This is all part of why conservatives are completely unable to successfully parody their political enemies. You need to understand your subject matter, and they never have.

We should save the money and get rid of the intelligence agencies. Trump is a one man intelligence agency.

The President of the United States stood next to the leader of the country that hit us with the greatest cyber attack in our nation's history, to date, and sided with that leader over our own intelligence community.

This is a surreal moment. Not unexpected, but surreal nonetheless.

Maybe this will be a turning point...

Tweet from @AriFleischer: I continue to believe there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. But when Trump so easily and naively accepts Putin’s line about not being involved, I can understand why Ds think Putin must have the goods on him.

... but probably not.

Here’s a good article on why Trump likes Putin so much, and what Putin’s plans are: https://www.vox.com/conversations/20...illary-clinton

It is. But many Americans won’t see it that way. We’re going to lose our democracy this way, all because of Russia.

Hypothetically if any country had hacked the RNC in order to try to get Hillary elected...Trump would be screaming about it from the rooftops. Tweeting about it 24/7, hiring lawyers, calling for a new election, railing against that country.

This, the hypocrisy has no ends to this administration. Imagine if Obama had a similar conference like today, the republicans would be screaming for his impeachment! And yet trump can get away with murder and it’s ok.

Right? No other politician would be able to get away with this kind of shit the way Trump has.

This is embarrassing and shameful and I hope to hell the entire GOP is made to answer for and pay for this, and called out for the fools they are for letting this shit go on as long as it has.

Remember all the Republicans who were constantly accusing President Obama of cowtowing to other countries? Extrapolated to accusing him of hating the US.

Are the same people speaking out today?
