The Left’s Russia Hypocrisy


Liberal leftists Trump hating so-called journalists are now equating Trump’s meeting with Putin with 9/11 where 3000 people died, Kristallnacht, the Holocaust where millions died, and Pearl Harbor where 2400 soldiers and sailors died. This lunacy is off the wall and an insult to every family who lost loved ones in those tragedies. This was all triggered by the fact that they lost and still can’t get over it. Psychologists and pundits have labeled this Trump Derangement Syndrome and rightfully so.

If you compare TDS-infected news to the weather, it is like being told that we are being ravaged by terrible storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, and tsunamis all at the same time. But when you look out the window, the world is as bright and sunny as ever.


On a recent episode of The View, Whoopi Goldberg succumbed to TDS with an over-the-top emotional on-air outburst at their guest celebrity, Judge Jeanine, of FOX News.  Goldberg was so overwrought that in the hallway after the show that she let out a series of f-yous followed by a repetitious command to “get the f*^k out of this studio.”

Democrat senators, such as Richard Blumenthal, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders, have surrendered decorum for rabble-rousing – elevating the smallest criticism of Trump and all who defend him into hyper-hyperbolic accusations of treason.

Just a few years ago all these Dems were buddy-buddy with Putin and fine with our relationship with him. In fac,t every president in the past 75 years have all met with the head of the kremlin. Now with Trump suddenly they call it treason?

Remember when Obama was caught off mic telling Medvedev that in his next term he’ll have more flexibility and Medvedev replies, “I will pass this onto Vladimir?

As everyone was taking shots at Trump for his post-summit press conference with Putin, Hillary decided to get her two cents in: She knows and knew then that Medvedev was just a puppet of Putin because Putin could not run again and had to take a break, he was and is the power in Russia…more progressive obfuscation and lies.

Hillary Clinton

Great World Cup. Question for President Trump as he meets Putin: Do you know which team you play for?

Hillary, as most know by now, sold massive Uranium rights off to Russia for 140 million to her foundation. And let’s not forget about the infamous “reset” button Hillary offered the Russians while Obama was in office.


Need we also point out the numerous occasions the Russians were have found to have hacked American government computers while Obama was in office — yet nothing was ever done.

Hillary also fired back “I would argue most important for voters to consider is the relationship between Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin,” Clinton says in the 2016 clip. “[Putin] knows he can use flattery to get into Donald’s head, to make Donald the Kremlin’s puppet.”

“So ask yourself, why would Putin be trying to get Donald Trump elected president?” Clinton continued. “Could it be because of all the nice things Donald has said about him or the fact that he has promised to adopt pro-Kremlin policies, or maybe because of the extensive business dealings with Russian oligarchs. Now, since Donald won’t release his tax returns and don’t hold your breath, we don’t know the full extent of his business relationships, but what we know is disturbing.”


Mike Huckabee apparently hit his breaking point, as he unleashed a tweet that absolutely shredded Hillary Clinton: Former Arkansas a Governor Mike Huckabee tweeted back:

“Hillary tweeted, ‘Q for Trump as he meets Putin: Do U know which team you play for?’ @POTUS never accepted $500K dollars for 1 speech from Russian bank, taken $140m for his foundation from Russian sources, or sold Russia 1/5 of US uranium supply. Which team are YOU on, Hillary?”

While Democrats continue to melt down over Russia, President Donald Trump shared an old video of Hillary Clinton talking about the United States helping Russia become a strong, stable, and prosperous country.

President Trump on Thursday tweeted out part of an old interview with Hillary Clinton during which she argues a “strong Russia” is in the world’s best interest. “We want very much to have a strong Russia because a strong, confident, prosperous, stable Russia is, we think, in the interests of the world,” Clinton says in a 2010 interview with First Channel Television, which is partially owned by the Russia government, according to The Hill.

The president tweeted the video along with the caption: “Will the Dems and Fake News ever learn? This is classic!”

The video, which has been viewed more than three million times in less than 24 hours, encapsulates the media double standard.

I guess Hilary forgot she said those things about supporting Russia. I think it was a good idea for Trump to play up to Russia. As the saying goes, “keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” Trump said, “if Putin doesn’t live up to our relationship he knows I will become his worst enemy.”

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has been one of President Donald Trump’s most outspoken critics over the president’s comments following a summit in Helsinki, Finland with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

But, it was not so long ago that Schumer and Putin were literally having coffee and doughnuts together.

The cherished moment for Schumer occurred after a Russian-owned oil company, Luk oil, opened its first gas station in New York. Schumer played tour guide for Putin and showed him around town. The tour included a stop for coffee and some Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

After the visit, Schumer said: “When I showed the president of Russia a Krispy Kreme doughnut and he ate it and said it was good, that was one of the more surreal moments I’ve had in politics.”


Schumer’s “friendship” with Russia did not stop at doughnuts and coffee, either. As George W. Bush’s presidency was winding down and Democrats were making a play for the White House in 2008, Schumer was calling for a better working relationship with Russia.

After the visit, Schumer said: “When I showed the president of Russia a Krispy Kreme doughnut and he ate it and said it was good, that was one of the more surreal moments I’ve had in politics.”

When Clinton and the Obama administration openly discuss having a good relationship with Russia, it’s called diplomacy and good policy. But when Trump and his team do the exact same thing, they are labeled as traitors and accused of colluding with Russia to undermine America.

Trump’s critics took issue with the president after he appeared to give some credence to Putin’s claim that Russia did not meddle in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Trump also said at the news conference — and again on Tuesday — that he strongly supports the U.S. intelligence community, who concluded that the Russians did attempt to interfere in the election. But that wasn’t good enough for many in the media, as pundits and hosts called Trump’s performance “embarrassing,” “disturbing,” “sickening,” and “un-American.”

The White House announced Thursday that Vladimir Putin has been invited to Washington this fall, even as leaders in Washington tried to fully understand what happened when President Trump and the Russian leader met earlier this week in Helsinki.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced the planned visit in a tweet, saying that national security adviser John Bolton extended the invitation and that “discussions are already underway.”

When you look at it this is a typical Trump way of poking his finger at his critics by saying, “You know how you critics criticized me with my meeting with Putin? Well guess what? I’m doing it again only this time over here.”  Trump is a real leader and when you criticize Trump he hits back twice as hard. When will they ever learn?
