    Trump is firing people because of the truth? Jesus

    Trump is not a political outsider, where anyone ever gets that idea I will never understand, I mean other than extreme ignorance.

    Trump has always been involved in politics, donations, lobbying, bribes.

    Remember when he first started campaigning and always said he knows how the game is played, he has always played it?

    He is a con artist that a Small part of American citizens have fallen for...

    Putin doesn't think, he knows...

    You're right, it is a goofy idea but it doesn't stop the loony left from using it for 4 years.

    He probably said it, plus he ran on this whole "drain the swamp" propaganda tag, and people took it to mean he's an outsider.

    But no, he's not an outsider. Trump is the otherside of the Corporate-State coin that has been pushed by the Republocrat status quo for some time. Trump is the status quo without filter or brake. I would have said, a difference being that the status quo wouldn't cozy up to Russia so much. But we see how Moscow Mitch and Leningrad Graham have been backing Russia as of late, so there's not even that difference any more.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    You may have a point if trump had actually been legitimately elected but he wasn't.

    Trump has never won a fair election and never will...

On top of that Putin admitted flat out in a press conference he preferred Trump and before that the intelligence services uncovered various Russian efforts to help cause his choice to materialize. Now, Putin wants Trump for a second term, according to Trump's own national intelligence service. Why does he? Two obvious benefits to Russia come to mind. One, Trump has been a thorn in our trans Atlantic alliances, weakening them to Russia's benefit. Two, Trump has been a strikingly divisive force in the United States, weakening us to Russia's benefit. Seem like two good reasons to me.
    He supports Trump because he knows what Trump can and will do and with anyone else, he knows some clowns in the CIA or FBI who would be running things might do something stupid. Putin likes real men, not fakes.
    When the debate is lost, the loser resorts to slander.

    Putin either controls you or gets rid of you. Care to list Putin’s friends?

    THere are those so blind they can not see. Of course Trump wants to be an autocrat. Eveery thing he does points to it . Of course Trumpsters see only what trump wants them to, he even said so. He told them do not believe what you see and hear, only what I tell you. I see you agree with trump.
