Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, February 03, 2023

In a social media post that coincided with Trump's official 2024 campaign kickoff, the ex-president once again declared that he values the opinion of Russian tyrant Vladimir Putin more than those of the U.S. law enforcement and intelligence communities. He wrote, in part, "Remember in Helsinki when a 3rd rate reporter asked me, essentially, who I trusted more, President Putin of Russia or our intelligence' lowlifes." He then characterized U.S. intelligence and law enforcement leadership as consisting of "really bad people." He also used the word "slime" to describe them. And then he concluded "Who would you choose, Putin or these Misfits?"

There's also the issue that Trump's pal Putin has spent the past year making the sound case that he is one of the world's worst monsters, a war criminal, author of a brutal illegal war, and an outright enemy of the United States, our NATO allies, and everything they stand for. Going to bat for Putin as Trump did (checks notes) this week (!) is far more repulsive than it even was the first time he did it back in 2018 in Helsinki.

By and large, the Republican establishment has remained silent on Trump's latest betrayal of his country. The GOP-led House is continuing with its plans to launch a committee investigating the "weaponization" of government that will seek to undo, bury, or discredit investigations, such as those into Trump's Russia ties.

Even if he didn't mean it, that kind of casual and open disloyalty coming from a sitting President is pretty awe inspiring. Imagine if Obama had said that crap. Even his grave would need 24 hour security.

"Do you agree with Donald Trump that Vladimir Putin is more trustworthy than US intelligence agencies?"
"Do you agree with Donald Trump that US law enforcement is made of of slime and really bad people?"

I hope to see the media asking those question of all the magats running in 2024.
