They say long-distance relationships are doomed to failure, but you’d never know it from the way President-elect Trump and Russian tyrant/terrorist/President Vladimir Putin talk about each other.
Putin (or Putie as he’s probably known to Trump) had this to say about the next President of the United States on Sunday during an interview with NTV:
“Trump was an entrepreneur and a businessman. He is already a statesman, he is the head of the United States of America, one of the world’s leading countries.
Because he achieved success in business, it suggests that he is a clever man. And if (he is) a clever man, then he will fully and quite quickly understand another level of responsibility. We assume that he will be acting from these positions.”
Considering that Putin very likely leaked information to help Trump achieve power and that Trump is rumored to have extensive business holdings in Russia, their mutual admiration is to be expected. But Putin would just as soon wipe the United States off the face of the map as he would steal another billion or to to salt away in his Swiss bank accounts. If Trump believes his Russian counterpart gives a hoot in hell about him or this country, then we have elected a man even more massively ignorant than expected.
In other words, I have some advice for these two love birds: We don’t want to see your romance. So do us all a favor and get a damn room!
