Goopers and Putin and Trump! Oh my!

Vladimir Putin’s Popularity Is Skyrocketing Among Republicans 

The guy is accused of manipulating U.S. politics and enabling the killing in Aleppo, and his favorability rating goes up.

Republicans have become so debauched, so marinated in their hatred of America, that they now openly admire the ex-Communist head of the Russian KGB and partner-in-massacre with Assad in Syria, Vladimir Putin.

They admire Putin above America's own president, Barack Obama.

Think about that.

Meanwhile, Vlad is doing this, and we expect the GOP is pleased to hear what their hero is doing because they admire this guy:

From CNN:

 Russian leader Vladimir Putin is stepping up the tension with the US by moving nuclear weapons to the European border and increasing military operations in Syria.

Kevin Drum:

"It is traditional at this point to acknowledge that lots of things affected the election: bad campaign strategy, rural blue-collar whites, etc. This is what you'll read about in all the post-election thumbsuckers, but this kind of stuff happens to all campaigns. The Trump campaign certainly made lots of mistakes too, though no one talks about them anymore. The difference here is that things like the Comey letter don't happen to all campaigns. This was an egregious intervention in the campaign by the director of the FBI, who was motivated at least partly by his fear of a rogue group of agents who were dedicated to Clinton's defeat.

This is decidedly not normal. Comey knew exactly what he was doing. He was warned that it would be an unprecedented act of interference in an election. But he went ahead anyway, and went ahead in a manner perfectly calculated to do the maximum damage. The press played along and the rest is history."

The Trumpanzees are giving a whole new meaning to "useful idiots". It's no wonder Putin is making the most of the opportunity.
