Once again, President Trump has come to Russian President Vladimir Putin's defense by throwing America under the bus.
In a pre-taped interview with Fox News' Bill O'Reilly, aired on Super Bowl Sunday, Trump was asked to explain his respect for Putin.
"He is the leader of his country," Trump said, adding the usual boilerplate about wanting to have good relations and help fighting Islamic State.
O'Reilly interjected, "Putin's a killer." And a vexed Trump replied, "There are a lot of killers. We've got a lot of killers. What, do you think our country is so innocent?"
This was no gaffe. A similar conversation played out between MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Trump in December 2015. Scarborough asked about Trump's bromance with Putin, and Trump responded, "When people call you brilliant, it's always good. Especially when the person heads up Russia."
Putin "kills journalists, political opponents, and invades countries," objected Scarborough. "Obviously that would be a concern, would it not?"Read the rest from Jonah Goldberg HERE.
