Wall Street Journal headlines:
Donald Trump, on Russian TV Network, Criticizes U.S. Foreign Policy
Republican presidential nominee telephoned into program on RT network, which has emerged as Kremlin’s propaganda tool
Mr. Trump’s interview, broadcast Thursday evening on RT America, came a day after the GOP candidate praised Russian President Vladimir Putin during a national TV appearance. His comments drew fire from other Republicans, who have been sharply critical of Russia’s behavior in the Middle East and with neighboring countries.
PM Carpenter tells us about Cамодержец Trump:
"...what a shock it must have been to the Trump campaign that an RT interview would air on RT. Let us also ponder the fate of Barack Obama in 2008 had he appeared with Walter Xing Cronkite on Chinese Central Television, blasting sitting-president George W. Bush's foreign policy failures; denying that Chinese cyberwarfare was being nefariously directed at the United States and that, only out of partisan malice, only Republicans were "putting that out"; and alleging that virtually all American media — unlike, one presumes, Chinese Central Television — was imbued with 'tremendous dishonesty.'
Candidate Obama would have been lucky to carry Illinois or Hawaii. Democrats would have scurried in associational terror as Republicans not unjustifiably shrieked Nincompoop! and America-loathing Slanderer! and of course Traitor!"
