Trump just fired off an unhinged, vicious rant in defense of Putin and made a startling announcement

- 10.27

President Trump took to Twitter this morning and continued his Vladimir Putin Apology Tour, which is now stretching into its fifth day.

Praising the murderous Russian dictator and lashing out at the “fake news media,” which he dangerously labeled the “enemy of the state,” Trump called for a second summit with Putin while doing that thing he does where he just names issues and says he’s fixing them.

For him to call for a second summit so soon after the first is disturbing indeed, especially since Trump has markedly ratcheted up his vocal support for Russia in the days following the first summit. What was said behind those closed doors? The American people deserve to know.

Most reasonable people who have not entirely lost their minds to hyperbolic bloodlust would indeed say that preventing conflict with a nuclear superpower was indeed a good thing; it is disgusting to see the President try to hijack those sentiments in order to justify his unapologetic submission and defense of a corrupt tyrant who personally ordered the interference into the 2016 election.

Every single day this week has seen the president discard the interests of the United States in favor of avoiding any kind of criticism of Vladimir Putin and Russia. Yesterday saw him even going so far as to propose enabling Putin’s vendetta against certain American citizens, discussing handing over former State Department officials for interrogation.

Five days in, it’s clear Trump has no intention of backing off on his defense of Russia and we’re reaching a tipping point. When will his Republican enablers finally say enough is enough and do something to put a stop to this?
