This is part of what I meant when I said we gotta think about what’s happening to our political culture here. The Russians can’t change us or significantly weaken us. They’re a smaller country, they’re a weaker country, their economy doesn’t produce anything that anyone wants to buy except oil and gas and arms. They don’t innovate but they can impact us if we lose track of who we are. They can impact us if we abandon our values. Mr Putin can weaken us just like he’s trying to weaken Europe if we start buying into notions that it’s okay to intimidate the press or lock up dissidents or discriminate against people because of their faith or what they look like.”’

Donald doesn’t like it when you bad mouth his guy. I mean his on his fourth leg of his victory tour now thanks to comrade Putin. But, sadly, for Donald, everyone except the most tone deaf wingnut now believe that the Russians were all in when it comes to getting trump elected.
