Putin Says Trump Is Being Persecuted

Tucker carlson must feel vindicated. 

Gee, I wonder what the chances are that Donald Trump will repudiate Putin's endorsement of him.

My money is on Trump reading this news and then saying he always knew Putin was very smart. 



The setting was an economic conference in far eastern Russia, with discussion of the ruble and domestic investment, but that didn’t stop President Vladimir V. Putin from wading into American politics on Tuesday, branding the criminal cases against Donald J. Trump political persecution and praising the billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk.

For years, the Russian leader has demonstrated an ability to exploit political divisions within Western nations, often by signaling to conservatives abroad that he is aligned with them in a global fight against liberal values.

Mr. Putin’s remarks on Tuesday, made at the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, appeared aimed at lending firepower to the Republican outcry over the prosecutions of Mr. Trump, who has long expressed public admiration for the Russian leader and has helped encourage a sizable Moscow-friendly contingent within his party.

The cases against Mr. Trump — who faces 91 felony counts in four jurisdictions — represent the “persecution of one’s political rival for political motives,” Mr. Putin said. He predicted that the entire affair would help Russia by exposing American domestic problems for the world to see and revealing the hypocrisy of American democracy.

“Given today’s conditions, what is happening is good for us, in my opinion, because it shows the rottenness of the American political system, which cannot pretend to teach democracy to others,” Mr. Putin said, prompting the hall to erupt in applause.

Mr. Putin, whose political adversaries have a way of ending up in prison or worse, said the criminal cases against Mr. Trump also demonstrated who Russia is really fighting against as it prosecutes its invasion of Ukraine. “As they said back in Soviet times, ‘the bestial visage of American imperialism, the bestial grin’” he said.

Mr. Trump offered no public response to Mr. Putin’s remarks, and his aides did not respond to requests for comment.

As was Jesus, Trump too is being persecuted.  And Putin, in the role of The Angel testifies to it.

Poor Trump.  Zelenskyy is not yet dead.  The Clintons still walk free.  And his most adoring fan is the 'man girl' which hails from the South.

“…the 'man girl' which hails from the South.”

Putin also says that Ukraine is not a country, and Trump calls him a genius.  The right wing lunatic fringe believes it.
