Trump (I almost typed “turnip” – wouldn’t be the first time) has recently been boasting “…Nobody was tougher on the Russians than I was…”
Well, yesterday, Russian announced a list of 13 Americans they are placing sanctions on (tit for tat sort of). The Americans on the new Russia sanction list are all Democrats, no Republicans, not even the vaunted “tough Trump.”
I am guessing that a bunch of Republicans are begging Putin to put them on the list so they can take some credit for being “tough on Russia.” I am guessing Putin made a big political “faux pas” here. Who is on the list and who is not is very revealing in itself.
The real “tough guys” didn’t make the cut here, even Lindsay Graham who wants to assassinate Putin or put out a contract on him. This is tough mob talk here Lindsay, real tough. Are you trying out for a part in a remake of “The Godfather?” Who’s playing the part of the Don? (pun intended).
