Putin's Poodle Is Hard At Work

President* Trump on Monday declined an opportunity to call out Russia as a security threat, saying instead that he considers “many countries threats.”

Trump was responding to questions at a joint press briefing with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö following their bilateral meeting in Washington.

When asked by a Finnish reporter whether he considers Russia as a security threat, Trump replied, “I consider many countries as a security threat, unfortunately, when you look at what’s going on in the world today.”
If you're a central or eastern European leader and you are not ramping up your defense spending and training, then you are whistling past the cemetery.

Trump also claimed that Finland was buying more F-18s, which is not true.

Be nice if trump was one of those people that actually "looked at what is going on in the world." If only there was some sort of intelligence that was briefed...

It is hard to condense it down to a 3 x 5 card, with every third word being "Trump".

The Finns said of the Russians, "So many of them, so few of us, how will we bury them all"
....and...they were Nazi allies in WWII, perhaps in part because of the Russian menace
