BREAKING: Putin Issues Shocking Trump Message

Can you BELIEVE this? Now, Vladimir Putin is lecturing the American people, issuing a statement that declared us Yankees ought to show Donald Trump a little more respect. Well, Putin may not be able to wrap his head around how a democracy works, but the American people ARE the sovereign here. Trump works for us, and we’ll boot him shortly for doing an abominable job.

Speaking at an international policy consortium in Sochi, Putin took a moment to muster a pretty outrageous, and very public, defense of Donald Trump. As if that wasn’t strange enough, just wait till you hear what Putin had to say. He’s mad at us for not respecting Trump.

“Mr. Trump was elected by the American people,” Putin began. “And at least, for this reason, it is necessary to show respect for him.”

No, Trump was elected by Russia’s Secret Service, at PUTIN’S request. Americans aren’t obligated to respect a tyrant president, and we sure as hell aren’t obligated to respect a treasonous tyrant president. Yet Putin continued on, defending Don John as if he were, well, his puppet.

“Inside the country disrespect is shown for him,” Putin said, so ridiculous that it’s almost humorous. “This is a regrettable negative component of the U.S. political system.”

“I believe that the president of the United States does not need any advice because one has to possess a certain talent and go through this trial to be elected,” Putin said. “Even without having the experience of such big administrative work, [Trump] has done this.”

Well, don’t ya’ll just sound like besties? Vlad and Trump, sitting in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g. Get Real. Putin’s Russia is the enemy of America, and the United States needs to start acting like it. It should set off alarm bells in everyone’s heads that our main foreign adversary is defending Trump so glowingly right now.

The worst part of all though? Putin literally blamed the Resistance for Trump’s unhinged antics, claiming that our rebellious protests have caused Trump to behave so emotionally.

“[He’s facing] great domestic resistance, which is the reason for his unpredictability,” Putin said. “Moscow will work with him despite all the difficulties.”

What an outrage. For Putin to come up to the podium and lecture the American people about it being OUR fault that Trump is so belligerent is ABSURD. We can see and speak for ourselves. Trump’s insanity is his own. And we didn’t pour millions of dollars into a covert campaign to elect Trump. Putin did. This is his fault.
