What I love is, if you saw the presentation ceremonies at the close of the World Cup yesterday, when it began to rain heavily everyone was drenched, and who was the only one with an umbrella being held over him? Thought he was a big hard Russian tough man? Can't take a little rain, Vladdy?

Like it or not we are where we are on a global stage. It affects every single one of us, whether it be the price of a gallon of gas, or your toaster. Or whether Russia can continue **** like what's happening in the Ukraine. Almost on a Hitler scale in many ways.

Trump has no problem talking **** about Canada, Mexico, Germany, England, Spain, Italy, or any of our other long time allies. He has no problem trying to be a bully with China, our largest trading partner by a huge margin (quick: run through your house and take an inventory of 50 items and let me know how many of them were made in the USA), and ****ing with our economy for years to come, yet he's a ****ing pussy in the face of Putin.

He called out the European Union as a US enemy and then sucked Putin's dick.

If you can't understand how bad this is for the US moving forward then I don't know what to say.

It will affect you. It will affect all of us. You just can't see it yet.

the reality is just that conservatives are attracted to authoritarians like Putin, their whole ideology revolves around authoritarianism
I think a big part of it is white supremacy

Russia is a much bigger Idaho

Question: what do you think when a salesperson is trying to get chummy with you?

Trump thinks Putin's a schmuck.

China has stolen millions upon millions from the U.S. in intellectual property (among other things). Long-term, they're a much bigger problem than Russia has ever been since the end of the Cold War. Oh, and they've hacked us before and the Obama administration did nothing about it. Where was the international panic and outrage when countless people's personal information (including government employees) were exposed?

Trump thinks he can pull off a "reset" with Russia that has eluded previous administrations. He wants to be the good cop to his adminstration's bad cop with the current sanctions and other measures. I think he'll have more luck with that if Putin conveniently keeled over sometime soon, but he's welcome to try.

Oh, and **** the E.U. They aren't some perfect union that's beyond criticism. Trump called out Germany on their fuel dependency issues and was right. He's also right about NATO.
