A lot of this is because Vlady is insecure about his penis size. Vlady never spent time at risk like the soldiers he sends to fight. He was a thug. We worked in East Germany as a KGB officer, not exactly putting himself out there by way of risk. He never had to worry about being arrested by the country where he worked. He's living vicariously through young, Russian conscripts and he's insecure because he feels like his penis is small. What we really need is for Donald Trump to tell Vlady that he (Trump I mean) isn't a size queen is doesn't mind being ****** but Vlady's small dick.

By the way, in case you all have not heard, Trump is now saying that he saved NATO.

When he was President Trump, he talked about the US leaving NATO and he withheld military aid to Ukraine as well in order to get some data about Hunter Biden.

But fortunately for us all, Trump is the one who saved NATO (or at least, this is what he is currently saying about NATO).

Trump, Who Wanted to Withdraw the U.S. from NATO, Now Claims Credit for Its Existence

...

“I hope everyone is able to remember that it was me, as President of the United States, that got delinquent NATO members to start paying their dues, which amounted to hundreds of billions of dollars,” Trump wrote in a statement released Monday. “There would be no NATO if I didn’t act strongly and swiftly.”

...

While he is now trying to portray himself as Ukraine’s savior and on Saturday called Russia’s attack “appalling,” Trump only days before praised Putin for the invasion, saying on a podcast, “Putin declared a big portion of … Ukraine … as independent. Oh, that’s wonderful. … I said, ‘How smart is that?’”

Trump's the poster child for narcissism. I can't imagine what it would be like to be married to or a child of that POS. He just makes my skin crawl.

In his defense (shudder) he could have been using sarcasm, and we all know that usually doesn't translate well to print.

Now that I've said that, let me emphasize how much I want him to have a debilitating stroke, at the very least, still.

Wait. You think it's even possible that Trump claiming to have saved NATO could have been sarcasm? What are you on? Have you fallen and hit your head lately?

I don't think so.
His "taking a country for $2 in sanctions" and "big country, just walked right in" were T's hard on for Putin's invasion.
Then he "read the room"... as in, the vast majority of the world calling for Vlad's head on a stick.
That, and I don't think he has the depth of imagination to grasp sarcasm.
T just floats wherever the political winds blow... but far more often, it's his original brain fart that shows the real man. And it's not a pretty picture.

Putin couldn't as long as his buddy Cadet Bonespurs was in office. It would have hurt his chances of re-election in 2020.

Yes. And you really should break it. Just how many times can you be wrong?


From Politifact:

Quote:

"I have been much tougher on Russia than Obama, just look at the facts. Total Fake News!"

We rate Trump’s statement Mostly False.
Obama Russia sanctions: 458
Trump Russia sanctions: 273


Quote:

Sanctions on Russia increased substantially during the Obama administration compared to the prior rate of designations, primarily in response to Russia’s territorial aggression in Ukraine and illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014. The Trump administration continued imposing new sanctions on Russia, albeit at a much lower rate than the preceding Obama administration, which designated 458 entities and individuals with ties to Russia during Obama’s second term compared to 273 under Trump.
So, so tough! LOL!!

When a Newsmax anchor claimed Trump was hard on Russia and that's why Putin didn't invade Ukraine while T was a POTUS, John Bolton said

Quote:

“It’s just not accurate to say that Trump's behavior somehow deterred the Russians.”
Quote:

Newsmax host Rob Schmitt said that “there is something to be said, though, about the simple fact that there was not aggression during the four years” Trump was in office, noting a list of actions that the Washington think tank Brookings Institution said the Trump administration took against Russia.

“I mean, he took a very tough stance against Russia. I'm surprised you don't think that he would have handled it better than Joe Biden,” Schmitt told Bolton.

“He did not,” Bolton replied. “We didn't sanction Nord Stream 2. We should have. We should have brought the project to an end. We did impose sanctions on Russian oligarchs and several others because of their sales of S-400 anti-aircraft systems to other countries. But in almost every case, the sanctions were imposed with Trump complaining about it, saying we were being too hard.”

The Trump-era national security adviser claimed the former president did not know where Ukraine was on a map and said he believed Russia did not take more aggressive actions while Trump was in office because Russia “didn’t feel that their military was ready.”

“The fact is that he barely knew where Ukraine was. He once asked John Kelly, his second chief of staff, if Finland were a part of Russia. It’s just not accurate to say that Trump's behavior somehow deterred the Russians,” Bolton said.

Very recently, Trump lionized Putin for being so very smart.

And now, Trump is congratulating himself for sending weapons to Ukraine even though Trump got impeached for hindering the weapons that were sent to Ukraine in order to pressure the government of Ukraine to provide Trump with political help.

https://news.yahoo.com/trump-now-cla...184203980.html

Trump now claiming credit for weapons used ‘so well’ by Ukrainians

...

“Russia has gotten in deeper than they ever thought possible,” Mr Trump said, “to a certain extent because of the weapons that I gave and that the Ukrainians used so well.

“I mean they use so well, amazing. So I think Russia is, something could be done with them right now, because they’re not looking so good.”

...


And of course, Trump being Trump, now says that it is time for some sort of deal which will get Russia out of Ukraine:

...

Asked by Ms Bartiromo what that “something” might be, Mr Trump replied it was time to “work out a deal” and that Russia needs to “stop killing these people”.

Sean Hannity's former producer has been arrested for violating US sanctions against a Russian oligarch:
Quote:

As the United States increasingly goes after some of the Kremlin’s business tentacles, the latest person arrested for violating U.S. sanctions against Russia is less notable for his ties to Vladimir Putin than his old ties to Sean Hannity—he is a former Fox News producer who left to launch a Russian propaganda network.

The Department of Justice on Thursday revealed that Jack Hanick was quietly arrested in London on Feb. 3 for dodging U.S. sanctions by helping a sanctioned Russian oligarch, Konstantin Malofeyev, start his right-wing Tsargrad TV.

The DOJ simultaneously unsealed a grand jury indictment against him, accusing Hanick of knowingly engaging in business dealings with Malofeyev, who had been formally sanctioned by the U.S. government for his role in financing Russia-backed soldiers in eastern Ukraine who have violently tried to break off from the democratic country since 2014.

While I wouldn't be surprised if some right wing propagandists are on the Russian payroll, I see no reason to assume so.

Right wingers are willing to simp for authoritarianism for free. People like Tucker Carlson are not being insincere when they drool in admiration for Putin's Russia, it's exactly the type of government they are working to foist on the US.
