When not busy inviting Russia to hack into someone’s personal emails and interfere with a United States election, Donald Trump continued his courtship with Vladimir Putin by proclaiming how much how wants to be Putin’s pal, and offering him up just a little trinket in the form of a ten-thousand square mile peninsula on the Black Sea.
First Trump had to restate how super-much he wants to be besties with Vlad.
“I think he does respect me. And I hope I get along great with him. It's possible that we won't, Jeremy. I hope that we get along great with Putin because it would be great to have Russia with a good relationship.
Right now, we don't have a good relationship. Putin has said things over the last year that are really bad things. OK? He mentioned the "N" word one time. I was shocked to hear him mention the "N" word. You know what the "N" word is, right? He mentioned it. I was shocked.
He has a total lack of respect for President Obama. Number one, he doesn't like him. And number two, he doesn't respect him. I think he's going to respect your president if I'm elected. And I hope he likes me.”
Vladimir Putin is the despotic leader of the Russian Federation who has invaded the Ukraine, taken Crimea, assassinated his political opponents, suppressed free speech, and just incidentally called President Obama a n*****r.
Trump’s position on all this: “I hope he likes me.” In fact, Trump wants Putin to like him soooo much that he offered up a little gift.
Donald Trump said Wednesday he would consider recognizing Crimea as Russian territory and lifting the sanctions against the country if he’s elected president.
I’m sure that Putin will have very nice things to say to Mr.
Chamberlain Trump. Why, if Trump becomes president, he and Putin will probably have lots of great talks. About the Baltic States. About Eastern Europe. About how Vlad could help Donnie take care of anyone who’s giving him troubles.
