How hard is Trump on Russia? He’s not even ‘soft of Russia’ in athletic competitions.
Trump slapped big sanctions on some of Putin’s top money men.
Our military wiped out two or three hundred Russian ‘mercenaries’ in Syria, fighting against us with the rebels.
We have slapped huge sanctions on their good friends in Iran.
We’re helping Europe become independent of Russian natural gas supply.
And Hungary is in discussions about building a base of operations for US military to work out of… they’ve offered to call it ‘Fort Trump’. It’s a big change from Obama’s reset button and flexibility he promised to Putin.
Of course it’s ridiculous to suggest Putin has Trump in his pocket.
But now that we had an American facing a Russian at the UFC fights, our President gave UFC Heavyweight Derrick Lewis a phone call and some encouragement.
It was a simple message.
Before the fight, Donald Trump called me, and told me I gotta knock this Russian Mothaf*cker out ‘cuz they makin’ him look bad in the news, you know, Putin and S**t.
This is the most unvarnished and hilarious interview you could ever hope to watch. Enjoy, but be warned, it’s seriously NSFW.
He’s a tremendous fighter, but like he said in his interview, he’s not very technical. He was down to the final minute of the match, and behind on points. There’s only one possible way he was going to win it. As described here:
An hour or so before Khabib Nurmagomedov went ballistic at UFC 229, another Russian fighter was putting on a dominant performance. Heavyweight Alexander Volkov worked Derrick Lewis for 14 minutes and 40 seconds, using his superior length to tag Lewis whenever he wanted and staying out of range when Lewis tried to drop a power shot. Between the second and third rounds, Lewis’s cornerman even told his fighter that he was definitely down on the scorecards and that the only way he could win would be taking Volkov’s head off with a big punch.
Take his head off? Ok, coach.
Lewis is an American. He’s got pride.
Ain’t no WAY he was about to let America get shown up by any Russki. This is OUR house!
And here comes the BOOM!
So much Winning!
You’re not tired of winning already are you? After all, Midterms are just around the corner!
