Had Trump denounced Russian meddling and refused to use hacked Emails in his official campaign from day one he could have avoided the entire Mueller investigation and the perception he is a Russian tool. He probably would not have won though. You people can debate among yourselves if it was worth it.

Yup. Imagine how history would be different if...........during the meeting when Papadopoulos pitched the idea of a meeting between Putin and Trump he said he could arrange.............a meeting Trump attended...............Trump and the rest of the campaign staff immediately decided the FBI needed to be alerted to a Russian operative making contact with a member of the campaign.

Why the hell didn't that worthless ass obie do it? He was the fucking president at the time.

Oh that’s right. He and his party were busy buying stupid dossiers and paying off Russians for fake stories about Trump.

If you want to have a meaningful dialogue with the leader of another country that has nuclear weapons and missiles at their disposal, you do not want to call that person a lying, cheating, mother-fucking asshole. You can think it, but you don't say it; instead you put a smile on your your face and say he's a good friend. Otherwise, tensions can get increased and more frosty than they already are. And that ain't good for anybody.

Cmon people, don't let the OP lead you down the "primrose path!" All he is doing is trying to create a narrative, where then he tells you how Trump made nice with Putin, so Trump is Putin's friend, geeze!

The real question should be-----------------> Was the USSR WORSE than Russia is today, and since BERNARD praised the USSR and how they did things, which country......RUSSIA or the USA.....is going to reach Marxist status 1st, if BERNARD is elected!

Come on people, this thread is a misdirection by the OP. You going to let them get away with it!

That Trump is enamored of Putin and other rightist authoritarian thugs – and fantasizes being just like them – is the problem.
