Rachel Maddow looks at what is known about the nuclear nature of a recent deadly explosion in Russia and notes reporting that while Russia's conduct in the incident would be expected to elicit an international response, Donald Trump's relationship with Vladimir Putin undercuts NATO's ability to do so.

President Donald Trump Coddling Putin Hampers NATO As Russia Oversteps | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC
Putin is worth approximately $100,000,000,000.00-$200,000,000,000.00. How did he get these monies when he’s not a business man? He stole this money from the Russian people. Russia is a most corrupt kleptocracy ruled by mafia like Oligarch’s with Putin being the god-father. He is the real deal when it comes to dictators & SpankyPants admires & fears Putin at the same time. Spanky is Putins puppet like Hillary stated.
Show me Putin’s money! I can tell the Americans and the British in the government are robbing not only their people, but also Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Emen, Venezuela and want a war with Iran. And it is 100%. In addition to everything for imaginary danger in Europe, the United States is cashing in money from Europe.
P J. @ hahaha spanky..I love it!
tingle blade. speak english
Where have you been for the past 35 years, RIP Van fridge666?
The title says Tramp is “coddling” Putin. No, no, no…he’s scuking Putin’s dcik.
@D. Ross the answer is ‘yes’ to all your concerns. Even in times of USSR putin was considered as a pity mediocre student of intelligence academy in Moscow. Unlike most of his more perspective co-eds, he was assigned to some routine duty in Eastern Germany and later, following the fall of Berlin wall, he was dismissed from duty in Soviet kgb at all. Yet, he is life-time spy-wannabe. He dreams to be honoured like ‘professor Moriarty’, a mastermind behind everything in his universe. He literally turns even the economy of Russia or Winter Olympics in Sochi in 2014 into yet another wacky ‘intelligence operations’ as he understands them. And no doubt, he has a leash of compromising materials on many sinful politicians both in US and Europe. The weakness of putin consists of two main elements: hush money and lack of any real trustworthy ideology. He is an international gangster and he acts like the one. Take his money away from him and his criminal empire will fall as no ideology exists to replace the lack of money. Trump family is not exactly the Rosenbergs who gave Manhattan project secrets to Stalin just because they shared ideology of communism. Hit the weakest point of any gangster which is his money. As per could some compromising materials exist on Trump or not, let’s put it this way: whom do you trust more? Christopher Steele which is honoured and decorated intelligence service officer of British crown or realty estate con from NY which hides his taxes and has so many dirty sheets he is forced to consider building a Trump tower in Moscow to keep them safe?
@Igor Kovaliov Excellent writing my friend.
@D. Ross just to put an even against all odds. In regards to above, why do you think Trump really presses on China with so called ‘trade wars’? Who demanded him to step on China in particular? Who had those infamous one-on-one meetings behind closed doors? I guess you can tell it yourself now.
@Igor Kovaliov Badimir Putin’s long term goal is to weaken the U.S., China, and all Western democracies. Not coincidental–Trump has attacked and ruined U.S. relations will all of our allies including Canada, Mexico, Australia, UK, France, Spain, Germany, and others.
has ANYONE read the Steele Dossier?? Trump damaging NATO on behalf of Putin is all in there!
@loquayrocks They are frightened out of their wits, and mainly of black brown red and yellow people in the context of the climate change crisis so they confusedly want to believe in a white supremacist “Christian” alliance to preserve their lazy ways.
Right, we should go over to fox!
And have you heard? Fox is giving away free MAGA hats!
I’ll tell you what we’ll do, you go now so you don’t miss out on a free hat and I’ll wait here in case I have to tell anybody else where to go.
Oh, yeah get an extra hat for me!
Republicans keep gaslighting how the Steele Dossier didn’t justify the FISA warrant, when it was just part of the evidence presented to obtain the warrant–whose two MAJOR assertions, Russian interference in the American electoral system, and contacts between Russian agents and Trump campaign officials, have proven TRUE! They keep wanting to pretend the President isn’t compromised by Russia, when he so obviously has been. Republicans care more about their regressive tribal politics than about America.
Meanwhile, Trump wanted to launch nukes into hurricane Dorian, like a complete psychopath.
@Jack Capone Yes. I’m sure you’re answering because ^yawn*.
OK, time to go to sleep. Have fun with your single-handed marathon!
@Asehpe Your mom helped out with her mouth, so, I didn’t need a hand.
So Russia are building a nuclear containment engine is just crazy and so dangerous if the magnetic containment fails as we have seen. You get a nuclear explosion 💥 and fall out and people die and lots get contaminated as we have also seen and trump thinks everything is fine with Russia and America what a joke.
@tingle blade I happen to live amongst Europeans and even if those do harbour a considerable number of psychopaths , I know of very few human cultures that cannot boast of very similar densities in violent madmen .
I am sorry to say the Russians a European tribe BTW least of all qualifies as a peaceful one .
So to which tribe do you believe you might belong whose historical record might be that stellar ?
Beats Vlad having to use his usual poison or poking loaded needles in one or two resisting victims. The nuclear fallout will anilhilate hundreds in a covered up Vlad sweep and Americans are going to pay so “Donald” told him!?!?! Heres more proof of trump’s fake Russian presidency, i.e., he’s our Putin installed fraud traitor with a bonus; we also get a perverted pedolphilic raping predatory repulsive sick pig to overturn our sacred democracy. Meanwhile Siberia is burning 🐌🐌
ManOWords Yes,indeed. I also like your name.
And so… Republicans are actively endangering the world. Trump’s relationship with Putin and his deregulation of environmental protections are a direct threat to the entire planet. And the Senate Republicans continue to help and protect him.
@Blink Once on Sunday! Nice try – your so ready to condemn POTUS but you can’t take 10 seconds to support your assertion. Your TDS is stage IV. There is nothing can be done for you. Sorry.
@Jack Capone And Sharpie-gate is still ongoing. Remind me again. Who is deranged, Mr Troll?
@Blink Once on Sunday! If you think that is significant, that tells us all we need to know about you.
@Jack Capone You’re such a tool. It’s not I who thinks it’s significant, it’s that Twitter-happy insecure child you like to call president. He turned a simple correction by the National Weather Service about a deadly hurricane into a personal grudge match to prove that he doesn’t ever make mistakes. You are blindly supporting and defending a 73-year-old whiny baby. The real question is: what does that say about you?
Trump wants to fight a wildfire with a lit toothpick by nuking a hurricane
“a hurricane can expend as much energy as 10,000 nuclear bombs.”
@Jack Capone . Max yield of America’s largest bomb is approx. 1.2 megatons.
The actual energy of a hurricane in any given hour is approx ten megatons.
BTW how did they allow a pervert like you out of jail?
Jack Capone is a russian troll. Hes all over the comments trying to push the blame.
Since coward bone spurs took over we’ve never been weaker.
ahhhh you must be one them dumbies trump fans lol out you all go
@declan gibo Very well thought out and intelligent comment, gibo. Keep taking the adderall.
your a trump fan you would not know intellighnt if smacked you in the face lol
@Boyd Absolutely, weak people lean towards bullying, it is one of the tools they use to compensate.
Trump is trying to distract from Russia
Who cares about radiation? Who cares about hurricanes, or maps? Who cares about the U.S. reputation, world standing, economic and military might? Who cares about American’s well-being and security? None of that means SQUAT! If Traitor Trump doesn’t honor his contract with Russia to divide and weaken America, it will be CURTAINS for him!
Stop coddling hitler trump impeach nowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwsswwww
Two words a hole…O donnel.
So the U.S. is now buying nukes from Russia now thanks to Moscow Mitch, Leningrad Lindsey and Individual-1??
Moscow Mitch, Leningrad Lindsey and Traitor Trump
Republicans: Who cares about radiation? Who cares about hurricanes, or maps? Who cares about the U.S. reputation, world standing, economic and military might? Who cares about American’s well-being and security? None of that means SQUAT! If Traitor Trump doesn’t honor his contract with Russia to divide and weaken America, it will be CURTAINS for him!
Why not Obama and Hillary sold them the uranium to build them.
@Rusty Shackleford “Mediocre!”
And that is why trump is *CRAP* :
Corrupt – *Russian Asset* – Psychopath
@Ayla Thom Again, you don’t present a SINGLE fact, just spewing bile. Your TDS is Stage IV. There is nothing medical science can do for you. I suggest a heaping handful of opioids and wash it down with brown liquor. Adios.
@wily wascal @UCcPpAqHXhlFovZNeYiSTqKA Again, you don’t present a SINGLE fact, just spewing bile. Your TDS is Stage IV. There is nothing medical science can do for you. I suggest a heaping handful of opioids and wash it down with brown liquor. Adios.
@john smith derp
Next headline in Russian papers: Angry Villagers Disappeared Mysteriously
or: people are not found, only russians
Silly you, there won’t any any such headline. The journalist will disappear too.
At this point it’s no longer mysterious…
Putin has told Trump that he will pave the way for new Trump hotels in Russia if Trump makes some things happen for Russia such as getting them back into the G8. Trump sees $… Are we really that surprised?
Jack Capone How do you know it is a complete lie?
Marcia Shindler G-8? Next year it will be the G-6, without us.
Marcia get your head examined you have Trump derangement syndrome
seems like Trump is a Putin-sanctioned Oligarch with an American passport.
@Gerhard Rinkens – Oh Wow. Say it like you see it. Right on!
@Gerhard Rinkens I’ll say he is not right in what he does. That’s a no-brainer!
imagine a giant L and all you tards fighting over who gets to stick it to their forehead.
Gerhard or whatever silly name that is,,,,you win. 🙂 Here’s your sign…and here’s the glue
@friggen bozo …. You already have it stuck to your forhead. … that’s enough.
why don’t these two love birds go and sit in one of them rockets…..And fly into the sun with it…
Or consumate their love on one of these radiated barges….
Gee… maybe Traitor Trump is a traitor?
Nice job USA. You voted for this clown and the rest of the world paying the price for your mistake
Sorry Trump will be unstoppable in 2020 you just going to have to get used to it
@Peter Lawrence as long as you keep him there. No need to come here, we all have our own idiots , we dont need yours too
Oh will be keeping him here you zip
Russians have a floating nuclear power plant called chernobyl on ice.
His a puppet putni lover,his sacred of Putin. Trump is weak and the rhetoric is at home against the former president and women including minority. Trump a Russian lover together with Moscow mitch.
Trump is making profit to destroy America all in hopes of a Moscow tower one day. This is the best person RepubliKKK’cons have to represent them. Let that sink in
