Clearly, Tя☭mp☠’s first political loyalties lie with Putin, not the United States. Putin, who is supposedly not a combatant in our hostilities in Afghanistan, pays a bounty to Taliban soldiers for each American “scalp.” U.S. intelligence knew back in February or possibly much earlier, and says it briefed Trump, both verbally and in writing. Trump denies being briefed. So either Trump knew about this act of war against the United States DID NOTHING, or was given a briefing that he did not read or pay attention to or remember, or is so detached from his role as president that he is outside the loop. No matter which it is, it renders Trump utterly disqualified from the presidency.
In any case, this has been known since Friday — four days ago — and we STILL have heard NOTHING from Trump about plans to respond.
Oh, did I say Trump did NOTHING? Pardon me. Since we became aware of Putin’s ACT OF WAR against the United States, Trump has tried to get Putin invited back into the G7, continued to try to ease sanctions, moved U.S. troops out of Germany (as Putin wanted), got the U.S. to back out of the nuclear arms treaty (something Putin wanted, but he wanted the U.S. to be the one to quit so he wouldn’t get blamed) and helped Russia negotiate favorable energy sales contracts. Russia perpetrated a hostile act of aggression — an ACT OF WAR — against the United States, and our “president” rewards him with multiple gifts and ZERO SANCTIONS, in violation of his oath to protect and defend the United States from all enemies, foreign or domestic.
The kompromat Putin has on Trump must be massive. Not just the pee-pee videos, which I’m sure he has, but that would be merely embarrassing and Trump is shameless. More like decades of sweetheart loans, money laundering deals, sanctions violations and, of course, Putin is the one who knows EVERYTHING about Trump’s 2016 collusion — stuff that doesn’t just embarrass, but loses him the election and sends him to jail.
Putin sleeps well at night knowing that Il Douche won’t try and interfere with his American bounties.
While Putin has done it to Russia, the Orange menace only attempted to change the Constitution to his liking. He’s sure tried hard enough! If Dante were with us today, I just wonder what circle of Hell he’d relegate Trump to!
How does the UCMJ judge a sentry who allows the enemy to infiltrate his post, for money?
The penalty is dire.
And a so-called “President”, a compromised asset of a hostile foreign country, who looks the other way in a war zone when the enemy attacks his soldiers?
It’s written in the Constitution. And his supporters should be equally judged.
Even more cringe inducing than that Miley Cyrus travesty.
There’s something to think about, Billy Ray.
What’s the name of Trump’s book again? THE ART OF THE TREASON ?
Luckovich has, I think the phrase is, jumped the shark.
This is a perfect portrayal of what trump has done to America and it’s Citizens.
Putin’s Personal Puppet and wrecking ball.
He didn’t know, or else he did know, and did nothing. Is one any worse than the other? It is his job to know, not hold rallies.
This is the line in the sand for supporters of PINO Trump.
Putin has sown discord worldwide and it hardly cost him anything.
This is a very powerful cartoon. It should be on the front page of every newspaper in the United States and in color.
It is simply IMPOSSIBLE that trump wasn’t briefed on the “bounty” on American service personnel. Can you say “bullshit”?
This is a very accurate depiction of Trump as a mindless tool, being used by Putin as one more weapon of the hybrid war that he is waging. The ultimate goal is to cause Americans to lose all trust and faith in our system of governance, starting with our electoral process. In addition, right wing White Nationalist groups are being infiltrated and urged to acts of violence, as evidenced by Maria Butina’s infiltration of the NRA. Similar groups in eastern European countries are being used as covert Russian para-military forces. The only improvement on the cartoon would be to somehow incorporate William Barr, the second greatest threat to the country.
Now that Useful Idiot Trump has served his purpose, it’s time for Putin to repeat to him those famous words by Leon Trotsky: “Go where you belong from now on – into the dustbin of history!”.
Loud mouth Bolton said he told brain dead Trump the moron about the Russian plan to pay for the deaths of American soldiers a year ago.
John Bolton briefed Trump on Russian bounty plot — and it happened a year earlier than previous reports
This absolutely nails it.
But don’t forget all that money you still owe me… and that pee tape…
I think he will hide in The Kingdom after absconding with funds and family.
I think King Donnie and his beloved Pooty created the scandal of Russia paying to have US troops killed for King Donnie to use as a distraction from COVID-19.
Putin doesn’t even have to operate the wrecking ball. He gave Trump his marching orders and now he has to just sit back and watch his “apprentice” do the dirty work.
And Republicans still support Trump, hoping that once the country is destroyed, they’ll be able to rebuild it in their (and ONLY their) own image.
The RNC emails must be pretty bad.
Putin shows the world his “tool”.
SNAP! Will nothing send this orange murderous traitor to prison?
