Failed former president Donald Trump is once again proving that he’ll never be anything more than a puppet for Russian president Vladimir Putin, bragging that he was the “apple” of Putin’s eye when he was still in the White House.
During an interview with Fox Business host Larry Kudlow, Trump remarked:
Trump’s comment was met with immediate criticism across the political spectrum, with some calling Trump a “useful American idiot” for Putin.
While Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) and his supporters love to say that he’s very different from failed former president Donald Trump, it turns out that in some ways, DeSantis is exactly the same as the disgraced ex-president.
Take, for example, comments DeSantis made today, which just so happens to be Presidents’ Day.
Appearing on Fox News, DeSantis attacked President Joe Biden for daring to visit our Ukrainian allies and reassert our support for them as they continue to battle against an illegal and immoral invasion by Russia and its terrorist leader, Vladimir Putin, remarking:
Ah yes, the old apples and oranges debate tactic, which only serves to prove what a completely unoriginal hack the Florida governor is.
DeSantis also mentioned fentanyl and Chinese balloons, adding this bit of red meat for the Fox viewers:
So Russia isn’t a problem? Putin isn’t a threat? Not to hear Ron tell it:
It’s not happening because President Biden has strengthened ties to our NATO allies and made it clear that if Russia even thinks of stepping one toe into a NATO country, he will bring hell down on himself and his country.
Ron DeSantis is the same as Trump in one important way that disqualifies him from ever being president: He’s a puppet for Putin. The entire GOP is in the Kremlin’s back pocket.
If perhaps you had heard all of the ridiculous shit that can possibly emanate from the mouth of a Republican, consider what Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX) had to say Thursday about how the Biden administration can end the war in Ukraine.
According to the congressman, the war would immediately end of President Joe Biden asked disgraced former president Donald Trump call Russian President Vladimir Putin, telling Fox News anchor John Roberts:
The remarks from Nehls come just a day after Biden announced would be sending Abrams tanks to Ukraine to help them repel Russian troops.
When it comes to the tanks, Nehls had this to say:
“The American people have to understand that is a very powerful piece of equipment, but it requires an enormous amount of logistical support. You have to have a logistical package. It has a jet engine. When you have to remove that engine, you need a big crane. It’s called, an M-88. It’s a wrecker for a tank. And you need to have smart people working on that. You need to have the maintenance personnel. You need to have the individuals know how.”
Here’s what doesn’t make sense about what the congressman said: For years now, Donald Trump has claimed he has no ties to Russia and denied that he is friends with Putin. But now Congressman Nehls is certain that one phone call from Trump to Putin would put an end to the fighting.
If Trump can end the war so damn easily, why doesn’t he just pick up the phone and do so? No one is stopping him.
We won’t hold our breath waiting for Donald Trump to do anything good for the United States or our allies. He never has.
Failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump is holding one of his Nuremberg-style rallies in Minden, Nevada, this evening, and judging by some of the attendees who spoke to the media, it’s safe to say that Trump supporters are a disgusting mix of hatred and anti-American sentiment, despite what they want you to believe.
One of those supporters was at the front of the line, waiting to be allowed into the venue. She’s what they refer to in Trumpworld as a “Front Row Joe.” These are Trumpers who are so maniacally devoted to the disgraced ex-president that they travel thousands of miles from their homes just so they can attend his rallies.
And yet they swear they’re not members of a cult.
Right Side Broadcasting was speaking with rally attendees, and they happened upon one woman wearing a sweatshirt that read “fake news is the virus.”
But it was what this unidentified woman had to say that’s most disturbing and disgusting.
Not terrible enough? Another lady claimed that Donald Trump is the nicest man in the world, making it sound as if she was referring to the messiah.
“I love him. He’s the kindest, gentlest man. He’s not a bully, like they try to say he’s mean. Just look at his children – they don’t smoke, they don’t drink. I mean, he did something right.”
His children don’t drink or smoke, but it sure as hell appears the oldest, Donald Trump Jr., is using some sort of substance, and it’s probably one that rhymes with coke.
These people need help, but they’re too damn entranced to know it. They need deprogramming, but they think the rest of us are the ones in a trance.
A noted journalist who has written extensively on the CIA, FBI, and Secret Service laid some uncomfortable truth on Fox News host Jesse Watters during an appearance on his show Thursday evening.
Ronald Kessler, author of the book, The Secrets of the FBI, explained to Watters what was probably in the classified documents failed former president Donald Trump took to Mar-a-Lago when he left the White House, explained:
Kessler added that the documents could also be about CIA “penetrations” of foreign nations, especially ones that have an adversarial relationship with the United States:
“Another is our penetrations by the CIA of foreign embassies, of foreign leaders like Putin, as well as recruitment of foreign spies overseas. So, we’re talking about incredibly valuable secrets that the Russians would have been after. The Russians would have been trying to penetrate the day and night and very possibly did recruit spies to obtain these documents.”
Rather than let Kessler continue, Watters interrupted him so he could defend Trump:
“So you’re saying that they could be there? We have no idea if they’re there or not and will never know and at this point based upon all of your reporting and the report we just did at the top you can’t trust these guys because they lie and they plant evidence for a living.”
As usual, Fox doesn’t want the actual truth about what Trump may have done. It gets in the way of their attempt to portray the disgraced ex-president as some sort of saint or savior. But a traitor is a traitor, and if it’s proven that Trump gave or sold top-secret materials to other countries, he deserves the harshest possible penalty.
