As if Trump couldn’t get any nuttier, now he wants to cozy up with his new bro-mance he seems to be having with none other than Vladimir Putin. The two exchanged warm and fuzzy accolades while dreaming of their possible working relationship together. It was nothing short of rainbows and puppy dogs.
Trump affectionately explained his adoration for the dictator during a rally in Cedar Rapids Iowa, “You know, he feels good about me. I feel, frankly, good about him. I think that we can do things with Russia that are to our advantage… It’s a mutual advantage.” Awww! Adorable!
Putin has given Trump what you may call an endorsement of sorts, calling Trump “brilliant” and “talent without doubt” during a press conference on Thursday. Before anyone cheers this union on, let’s not forget that we are talking about a dictator who has many human rights violations under his belt and has been rumored to kill journalists or anyone who may show dissent as Joe Scarborough pointed out in his interview with Trump. Of course Trump countered that argument on the “Morning Joe” saying, “Well, I think that our country does plenty of killing, too, Joe.”
Trump feels that Russia could be a powerful ally, even helping our debt ridden country save some dough. Trump mentioned the dictator twice during his rally saying,
You know, he feels good about me. I feel, frankly, good about him. I think that we can do things with Russia that are to our advantage… It’s a mutual advantage. Now, they’re jealous as hell because he’s not mentioning these people. He’s not going to mention them, so they’re jealous as hell. So a couple of them came out with: “Oh, well, you don’t want to be friends.” Oh no, we don’t want to be friends. No, we want to spend another five trillion dollars continuing to fight. We gotta be smart. Now, we gotta really be smart because we don’t have any money any more. You know we’re a poor nation — we’re a debtor nation.
Huh? Jealous as hell? Does anyone even know what he is talking about half the time? There is never a plan, just blanketed statements. Why aren’t people asking these questions? Like, where will we get the money to build a great big wall? Does one really believe Mexico will pay for it? And what about his relationship with the Clintons and Pelosi? That is a jagged pill to swallow for most conservatives and frankly it should be. Not to mention the Donald wants universal healthcare, but who’s keeping track of such petty little nuances like that anyway?
Trump went on to praise himself and insinuate his opponents don’t want to get along with the dictator saying,
Then what do they want to do? They want to have a World War III, okay? World War III. For what? For what? And they have problems, we all have problems. Russia has got plenty of problems. But I’ll tell you what: If Putin likes me, and if he thinks that I’m a good, smart person — which I hope he believes, you know, I am. Actually he’s right, I am brilliant. You know that, right?
Trump certainly is a legend in his own mind and has an ego the size of the universe but when we get down to brass tacks, blanketed statements just won’t cut it. When the herd thins and it’s just the last two in the debates there will be nowhere left to hide. Trump will have no choice but to reveal what he doesn’t know and the Trump train may derail into a fiery burn. Obama’s red line who?
