You know, that’s one of the most entertaining thing about having to deal with total sycophants. They are so slavishly devoted that they fall over themselves to please their master, and sometimes they accidentally fuck up.
Thanks to his total subservience to Vlad the Imp, Trump had a 5 year love affair with the Russian media. They covered him lavishly, which was a pleasant change of pace from the grilling he got from the national media at home.
And it looks like Trump wanted to pay back a bit of their kindness, and possibly start watering the seeds for 2024. In his rally Saturday night, Trump trashed Biden for the official response of his own country on Russia’s aggression against The Ukraine, and promised that if he were reelected in 2024, he would sit down with Putin and work everything out.
This was music to the ears of the Russian news media, all still enamored with Putin’s useful idiot. They were lavish in their praise of Trump, but then they got carried away, and like a puppy that gets too excited and pees on the carpet, they stepped over the line;
“The city on a hill is again being taken over by the Trumpists. Donald already declared that he will become the 47th president of America and will figure things out with Russia and Putin,” host Olga Skabeeva said on Monday’s segment of the Russian TV show 60 Minutes. “Donald, we’re waiting for you and are ready to elect you again.”
Really? Please feel free to explain further. Because I seem to remember a certain scumbag Russian President spending all of 2017 and 2018 bellowing to the heavens that Russia played absolutely no part in interfering in the US 2016 election. And now, we have loyal toadies of Russian state run media, fussing over Trump, and promising that they are ready to elect him again in 2024.
Apparently somebody didn’t get the memo. Russia good. Election meddling bad. They just accidentally confirmed something that everybody else had known all along. That Putin had put his thumb on the scale of the 2016 election. Oh, well. Nothing a nice all expenses paid 10-15 year vacation in Siberia won’t fix.
