Marching Orders

Is Trump even trying to look like he’s not a Putin puppet? Not that I can tell.

This was published on May 23 in Sputnik News, a Russian propaganda outlet:

Moscow has called on Washington to settle the issue of the “illegal” seizure of Russian diplomatic property in the United States in the latter days of the Obama administration in a constructive way, adding that if the problem isn’t resolved, the countermeasures by Russia will follow.

In December President Obama had seized the two diplomatic compounds, saying they were used for intelligence gathering purposes. The move was retaliation for Russia’s hacking the U.S. election.

And now, six months later, we have this:

The Trump administration is moving toward handing back to Russia two diplomatic compounds, near New York City and on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, that its officials were ejected from in late December as punishment for Moscow’s interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Just one week after Sputnik said Putin wants his Russian spy houses back, Trump is following his marching orders. But, no puppet, no puppet.

Got it.

    If you use the phrase “… now wait a minute … ” and can hold a job, I’d invite you to Canada …

    I can see it now…

    At some point the Congrifters will start standing up in the House and Senate saying, “I told the president to shit all over the rest of the world!”–like the gladiators who followed Spartacus when he was going to be put to death.

    The only real difference will be that people like Corker have no honor, integrity or courage.
