Latest Trump Putin Appeasement: Growing Hostility Toward Ukraine | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC


  1. It’s such a comfort to those of us in Florida that the Chief Cheeto has stayed home to help us thru this terrible time. What would we do without him? Oh yeah, we’d have a functioning country again.

    1. AsiA I. You do realize that hurricanes don’t care how you vote, right? They just take out anyone or anything in its path.

  2. G8, G7, G6…. x.x Who is in charge of calling two of these guys “great”? I think Boris and Trump should be replaced at the next summit. When someone else is president and the UK behaves itself.

    1. Aren’t we even going to talk about how all this could jeopardize Hunter Biden’s next tranche of coke funds from Kiev?

  3. So once again, Trump is asking another foreign country to interfere in our elections. And of course Putin is going to interfere in our elections again. Putin is going to do every thing he can to protect his Russian asset in the Oval Office. He invested too much time and money into Trump, and other republicans in Congress. Putin won’t stop unless America makes it extremely painful for him and his gang of mobsters/Oligarchs, because that’s the only thing thugs like them understand. The late Senator John McCain was right when he said that Russia was nothing more than a gas station masquerading as a country.

    Economic sanctions should be placed on Russia that are so crippling, that it threatens to topple that criminal organization that Putin calls a government, but that would take real leadership from the Oval Office. The difference between Trump and President Obama when it comes to Putin, is that Obama never needed or wanted anything from Putin. President Obama was not beholden to any Russian Oligarchs. Traitor Trump on the other hand, owes much of what he has today to illegal Russian money. The Russians have been bailing Trump out financially since the 80s. We now know that even during the campaign, Trump was still trying to secure a deal in Russia for the construction of a Trump Tower in Moscow.

    Make no mistake, Putin is America’s enemy, and not because we want him to be, he’s America’s enemy because that’s what he has chosen to be. And he should be treated accordingly with the choice that he has made.

  4. Putin clearly ordered Trump to cancel his meetings with the President of Poland and Ukraine. And Trump being the slavish, self-abasing, treasonous Russian asset that he is, followed Putin’s orders to the letter.

    1. @cycoklr , That’s because Turkey abandoned it secular Government and reforms pushed through by Ataturk. It’s elected Islamists who have more in common with dictatorships than Western Democracies.

  5. It’s getting more and more obvious Trump is in Putin’s pocket and he is now paying back his debt to Vladimir like insisting Russia invited back to the G7 and now getting more anti Ukrainian!

    1. That’ll put even further pressure on America’s relationship with its allies. We haven’t forgotten MH17.

  6. He’s too old now to care I guess but he will be known in the future as an enemy of the United States.

  7. It’s apparent nobody is going to do anything about Trump. He could sign this country over tomorrow without any consequences apparently…

    1. @Salterino Kripperino Gee, your comment might have upset me, if I wasn’t certain that you know as much about Marxism as you do about grammar and punctuation, which appears to be little to nothing.

    2. @Salterino Kripperino Complete disregard for the constitution and the law and putting personal interests and the interests of another country above the interests of your own country does not make anyone a good president.

    3. @AThagoras – Exactly.
      1. #45 smiled, *saluted* and shook hands…with the men *who murdered* collegiate Otto Warmbier.
      2. #45 smiled, danced and dined…with the men *who murdered* journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
      3. #45 posed, preened and puled…with the former *KGB agent who attacked our country* via our electoral system.
      *’Three strikes’* …and #45’s *’out’.*
      It’s *beyond* shameful…and yet *utterly* unsurprising, considering #45’s affinity *for* our nations adversaries. 😒

  8. WOW! What are his aides and Generals saying ? Why isn’t ANYONE in the administration commenting on this ! They can’t or won’t !

  9. Trump as been compromised and his followers need to understand, this is not a good Republican President you people make him out to be…

  10. He’s a coward and a traitor to democracy. If he’s blocking aid to the Ukraine I wonder how much Russia is paying him for doing that.

  11. In the 30’s a man told the German people he would lead them and give then a better life. How’d that go?
