Donald Trump Goes On INSANE Saturday Morning Pro-Russia Twitter Rant (TWEETS)

-

The president-elect is determined, no matter how irrational his arguments may end up, to drive into the ground any and all suspicions over any corrupt connections to Russia that he may have.

On Saturday morning, Trump took to Twitter in an attempt to normalize his odd and potentially highly dangerous comfortableness with Russia.

He wrote, in a lengthy rant:

‘Having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. Only “stupid” people, or fools, would think that it is bad! We have enough problems around the world without yet another one. When I am President, Russia will respect us far more than they do now and both countries will, perhaps, work together to solve some of the many great and pressing problems and issues of the WORLD!’

This tweetstorm comes the day after the Office of the Director of National Intelligence released a damning report condemning Russia as having specifically sought to bolster Donald Trump’s bid for the presidency with a months-long cyberwar against the U.S. Democratic Party.

First of all, there’s a real problem with a president of the United States referring to his opponents as “stupid people or fools.” That’s not the level of professionalism that normally accompanies the office of the presidency.

Secondly, although Trump’s usage of the ever-so-conveniently ambiguous term “having a good relationship with Russia” certainly sounds nice, it has a rotten undertone.

Russia is a dictatorship that has been led by the same man — Vladimir Putin — for what’s going on decades. The Russian government is widely believed to be behind the deaths of many opposition political figures. The Russian government, as led by former Soviet Secret Police head Putin, is widely known to have a long tradition of jailing or otherwise prosecuting its political opponents.

Having a “good” relationship with such a nation that keeps it at a decent arms length, holds it accountable for its corruption, and still “respects” it enough to warrant some level of mutually agreed non-militarism is not the kind of “good relationship” that Trump has in mind.

Trump, in fact, has already made well known what kind of “good relationship” he has in mind as something that “only stupid people or fools” would oppose.

For example, he’s spent months showing how deeply dead set he is against holding Russia accountable for its corruption as shown through the DNC hacking scandal.

In addition, Trump wrote in his latest rant that he thinks that the U.S. and Russia can “work together to solve some of the many great and pressing problems and issues of the WORLD!”

And cozying up to a Russian dictator in such a fashion finds a lot more opponents than just “stupid people and fools” oppose, Mr. President-elect.
