Trump loves Putin, like Bush: "I looked the man in the eye – I was able to get a sense of his soul."

Reagan is rolling over in his grave about Trump's infatuation with Putin.

That stupid claim about about the ex-KGB dictatorial despot with 84% approval. Stunning ignorance. Sickening that so many people think he is qualified for anything but a TV huckster. A con man.

Show us your taxes. That will end all this immediately.

Putin ran the KGB. He looks at Trump and the things he says and laughs greedily. He looks around the politburo and giggles, telling his henchmen, watch what I do with this bozo who thinks he can read body language! We need someone firm, not some narcissistic reality star who bases his decision on the last person who spoke to him.

And Bill Clinton received a personal thank you phone call from Putin after giving a speech in Russia.

And the Clinton foundation takes money from the Saudis' who execute gays.

And the Clinton reset failed,

Do you know the definition of insanity.

Putin is a thug and a murderer, and a dictator, but I'll take a new attempt at working with Russia than what has already failed. In case you haven't noticed their not going away. Do you really think Clinton has some great new plan.

VP debate:

Praise for Putin

Kaine: “Donald Trump and Mike Pence have said he’s a great leader"

Pence “No, we haven’t"

Fox July interview - Trump tells Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade that Putin is "a better leader than Obama.”

September CNN, Pence: "It's inarguable that Vladimir Putin has been a stronger leader in his country than Barack Obama has been in this country."


"inarguable"


As in....

It's inarguable that Pence is either a liar or well, you know...

A Trump supporter, ie. an idjit.

The Russians broke the Syrian cease fire,

They are dropping Bunker Buster Bombs under hospitals

They are dropping Chemical Weapons on children,

Kerry/Obama response, "We're going to stop talking to them"

Obama is just hoping he can make it to January,

This isn't a Trump Clinton problem.

You can make all the jokes you want, but ,

This is Nazi Germany being replayed.

Trump having a fan boy crush on Putin is no joke. Witness the 100 republican foreign policy professionals that signed a letter saying Trump is too dangerous.

Pence is worse - he would fire on Russian planes in Syria.

Jackal and Hyde.

Jackal - good one.

Watching Pence lie about the Trump statements, and Pence's own statements is just absurd.

Thanks to a ridiculous gop primary result, we will have our first woman president. There were 5 guys running who would be beating Trump.

Cruz. Pence. Bush. Rubio. Ryan. Romney. Who else?

Disaster.

With the audio of Trump talking about how he abuses women released, it looks like the biggest presidential tax scandal in history takles a back seat. Or, as Coulter tweets:

Ann Coulter ✔ @AnnCoulter
Trump up 5 points among the ungrabbed.

Other arch-conservatives:

Matthew Dowd ✔ @matthewjdowd
I have six brothers, and three sons. This isn't boys will be boys stuff. This is him celebrating his ability to sexually assault someone.

Erick Erickson ✔ @EWErickson
"But the Supreme Court!" you scream. Better tell Trump to get out of the race now.

Meghan McCain ✔ @MeghanMcCain
This godforsaken election. This vile excuse for a nominee. I cannot find the humor in any of this.

Guy Benson ✔ @guypbenson
Meh: Bawdy talk among dudes.
Worse: Bragging about trying to bang a married woman.
Repulsive: 'I'm famous, so they're chattel/playthings.'


"Repulsive" sums up the whole Trump thing quite nicely.

Would you introduce him to your daughter? Invite him to dinner to meet the "little lady"?

President Trump already promised to release his taxes - that canard is a red herring by leftists. They flood the msm with fake news.

"President Trump already promised to release his taxes - that canard is a red herring by leftists. They flood the msm with fake news." Show us the link, maestro.

Who's the perpetrator of fake news?

One Donald J Drumpf, who said today that he will not release them because they are under "audit". So many lies, and the gullible just swallow. Another would be "Mexico will pay for the wall" - wow, tough swallow on that one, eh?

He also said today that Putin's hold over him should be looked at as an "asset, not a liability."

I wrote this 4 months ago, nothings changed except everything.

- Reagan is rolling over in his grave about Trump's infatuation with Putin.

Putin is now crooning in Trumps ear "yer in my dreams"

And in his video.

Clapper showed Trump the dossier summary. Why wasn't this shared with America? We could have made other choices other than putin's video buddy.

Obama was a compromise president. Trump is a compromised president.

Remember the one item that Trump demanded in the GOP platform? Easing sanctions on Putin.

Don Trump Jr tells us they take ton of Russian money.

The short fingered vulgarian tweets that he takes no Russian money. Then he puts a bunch of blank pages on a table at a once a year press conference and says "see!"

So many scandals, this one is the one that most effects national security.
