    Why does Trump support and defend Putin?

    I think it's admiration combined with financial ties to Russian oligarchs who are Putin allies.
    Thanks from the watchman

    Trump throws US Military under the bus as "Killers" for invading Iraqi...while defending Putin.

    Could you imagine the unhinging if a Democrat did that...

    Spineless GOP silent.


    “Take a look at what we’ve done too. We’ve made a lot of mistakes,” ...“I’ve been against the war in Iraq from the beginning.”

    “A lot of mistakes,” Trump continued, “OK, but a lot of people were killed. So a lot of killers around, believe me.”

    “It’s never been proven that he’s killed anybody, so you know you’re supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, at least in our country. He has not been proven that he’s killed reporters.”
    He gives Putin constitutional rights.

    Sane Republicans are left with either being silent or willing accomplices to Trump being Putin's Apologist.

    The Trump Bloggers (real Americans and the paid Russian ones) naturally will dodge, deflect, try to change the subject, or even ACTUALLY DEFEND Russia and Putin.....

    and simply prove it's true that Trump is Putin's stooge....as they are.

    Perhaps it is a combination of what you posted about admiration and respect for the financial side along with the social ties between the countries. We have historically allied with the Russians before to defeat tyranny even when they were under dictatorship. As distasteful as it is, we need strong reliable western partners now.

    Admiring a dictator is problematic, don't you think?

    No......but as usual, you try to cover an inability to talk serious about a "dangerous topic" with hyperbolic snarkiness.


    Now move to your next Line of Programming....and try to change the subject to me or Hillary or Obama.

    RUN PROGRAM 1


    or prove me wrong and try to dispute my premise...with facts and logic. And blow my mind.

    Sorry, but, I am not ready, at this point to take the paranoid fantasies of the Left as a "dangerous topic."

    As for why Trump seems to like Putin...well, I can't say. (Because, I am not really privy to tRump's secret thoughts and motivations.)

    --Could be that tRump respects the fact that Putin is willing to take ON Islamic terror, rather than sticking his head in the sand.

    --Could be that tRump does have financial dealings with Russia. Many Billionaires do. I am betting he also has financial dealings with China. Does THAT make one "guilty of TREASON?" If so....we better gear up for some pretty serious "Loyalty Courts."

    --Could be that tRump is simply being overly defensive, not really cpmprehending that he can simply IGNORE the yammerings of the Loons, and do his fucking job.

    --Could be that tRump and Putin are in a pact to dominate the WORLD. (I think, they are both members of SPECTRE. Or, The Hand...I forget which.) One would think that they let the Chinese in on the deal, as well.

    --Could be that tRump is going to establish a Dictatorship. If so, I will be in the streets with you. But, no....NOT to replace him with one of the far Left, neo-Socialist Goons.

    Good enough for you?
