    Trump will kiss his shoes and not get an ounce of respect back. Love to see it.

      I ran into somebody the other day that I graduated with about 20 years ago who’s still in the army, and he was trying to tell me that Trump is the only person Putin is afraid of and he’s tough on Russia.

      It’s terrifying to me that our armed service members buy into this bullshit.

          In your experience, what percentage of servicemembers are like that? I have my own impressions as an outsider, but my anecdotal experience is likely far less meaningful than your anecdotal experience.

            Depends on the job field. I was combat arms, and I’d say it was around 50-60%

            From my limited experience with non combat arms people, it seemed lower among them.

        How can anybody possibly think that? Have they somehow lost all memory of Helsinki?

          When all you listen to is far right brainworm feeding idiots, you’ll believe all sorts of easily falsifiable things.

    He’s just playing mind games. He clearly wants Trump to win, he’s got him on a leash.

      He doesn’t care who wins as long as we tear each other apart

    This serves two functions… perhaps for different audiences.

    1. It attempts to deflect accusations that Putin supports and would influence the election for Trump.

    2. It makes it more possible that Trump will pander to Putin to win attention and approval.

    He’s really laying it on thick.
