Shouldn’t Trump’s trust of Putin concern those on the right?

Unless you have your head completely buried in the sands of denial, it must be apparent that there is something very peculiar going on at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. We have heard from several directions that Donald Trump favors the word of Vladimir Putin over the advice of our own intelligence agencies.

Why would anyone negotiating on behalf of America take such a stance? Attempts by the great patriots of the right to explain it really stretch the bounds of credibility for any but the most diehard Deep State conspiracy theorists.

If you subscribe to the notion of “Keep it simple, stupid,” we are long past the point that anyone should accept the word of this excruciatingly inarticulate Comrade President. Vladimir is close to owning our country. Do we accept that mistakes were made in the 2016 election, or do we ride the whole catastrophe down, slapping Stetson against the bomb with Slim Pickens?
