The Russians Don't Like to Say It, But They Know that Trump is Their Guy.

A note of glee crept into Russian commentary and news coverage on Friday about the current turmoil in Washington around national security, with President Vladimir V. Putin seemingly checking off one item after another that he might have written on his wish list for Santa.
“Trump is God’s gift that keeps on giving,” said Vladimir Frolov, a Russian columnist and foreign affairs analyst. “Trump implements Russia’s negative agenda by default, undermining the U.S.–led world order, U.S. alliances, U.S. credibility as a partner and an ally. All of this on his own. Russia can just relax and watch and root for Trump, which Putin does at every TV appearance.”
If you ask the Right why they continue to support Trump, who is acting as though he is wholly-owned by Putin, all they can do is shrug and mutter "Hildebeast" or some such nonsense.

Let's be clear on this: Trump's supporters are supporting a traitor. There are no "ifs, and or buts" about it.

Which tells me something about the patriotism of Trump supporters and his party.

p.s., the rude pundit.

Y'all fail to realize that we knew Trump was far from the best candidate.

But the others were all worse.

So yes, "hildebeast". Plus all the others on both sides, in both parties.
Again, you can blame the ascent of TheDonald on the fact that both the RNC and the DNC fielded losers, traitors, and more losers.

If we want to get better governance, then we need people to demand candidates for whom we can vote "for" rather than "against".

So a Russian Manchurian Candidate was a better choice than Hillary? Those of you suffering from HDS are just cutting off your nose to spite your face. The future downfall of society, driven by a renewed century of conflict, possible nuclear war(s) and climate change, is on your shoulders. The names Donald Trump and the United States will be cursed for decades as we fall back to the Middle Ages. At least the population will become sustainable with the culling from the failure of antibiotics and the food shortages.

So the Republicans are at fault because the party had no control over who was nominated, while the Democrats are at fault because the party had some control over who was nominated?

Good to know.

To continue to support a man who has shown consistently that he cannot be honest, cannot successfully run the country, does not listen to what HIS staff experts tell him, and undermines what the United States stands (stood) for tells me one of three things.
1) They are too stupid to realize what THEIR man is doing to this country and the world.
2) They are too embarrassed to admit to themselves and others that they’ve made a grave mistake in voting for this idiot.
3) They’re themselves, are traitors and would rather see the United States fail than succeed on the world stage.

Trump’s racism (the Mexicans that are coming here are rapists and murderers), mysogyny (grab em by the pussy), xenophobia (I will implement a ban on Muslims coming into this country), egotism (his name on everything he builds), lying (Trump University scam) and a poor businessman (failed companies and casinos and lawsuits for not making payments); these were all on display prior to the elections but these morons/traitors willingly chose to ignore these signs and voted for him anyway.

The “right” certainly isn’t. They’ve fucked up but just can’t openly admit it.

Dale: Nicely twisted.

I like how you manipulate the Press's spin into policy statements.

And here I thought you were better than that.

dinthebeast said...

They didn't just vote for him, more of them voted for him in the primaries than for any Republican candidate in history, despite far more capable and qualified Republican candidates running. There were seventeen of them, if I remember correctly.
They told us in no uncertain terms that this is what they want for the country.
So if this is not, in fact, what we want for the country, we have to show up and vote for something different, which we just did.
Sixty million of us showed up last month, an unheard of number for a midterm, and right on par with what McCain and Romney got in their presidential bids.
We tried to tell them that this was too serious of a job for a bomb throwing amateur who happens to know how to exploit their bigotry, but they were having none of it, mostly because they have been consuming right wing propaganda for decades that reassures them every day that their ignorance is noble and their bigotry is patriotic.
So the consumption of those propagandistic ideas is really at the root of the problems we are now experiencing, and given the level of electoral cheating engaged in by the Republicans, I feel like it needs to be addressed also, as we might not always win elections even with our superior numbers.

B, please explain. No where did I use any ’spin’ to create policy statements. All I did was use his own words as examples of the type of person he is. This ‘businessman’ who is at the lead of the Republicans and the country is ruining both. One I care about, the other not so much.

Consider this: think of the country as a business. If the CEO of the business paid off porn actors for their silence, had side deals where his family members benefited, insulted suppliers, ignored the opinions of managers and other company officers (to the point where they resigned), causing the stock’s value to decline rapidly; don’t you think the board of directors would move to replace the CEO before he totally tanked the company? Not a company that any sane investor would sink their money into.

He’s YOUR guy. You are HIS base support. Until that support tells him to change, nothing will happen.

You can give up, Dale. I just figured it out, the Republican Party is now the classic abused spouse. The blame falls everywhere but on the abuser. The Republican Party married Donnie and now has decided it deserves to be knocked around a bit...horrifyingly, this is a well known psychological condition, but seldom seen writ so large. B. Is just parroting the words the Party is using to continue to avoid confronting the reality of the situation.
