Russia Analyst: People In Moscow Are Laughing As Putin Plays ‘That Fool’ Donald Trump

During a panel discussion with MSNBC, Russia analyst Nina Khrushcheva said Trump is playing “right into Putin’s hands” and that the Russians are laughing at the U.S. because they can see the Russian leader treating the president-elect like “a fool.”

Asked by host Sheinelle Jones about Putin’s letter where Trump described Putin’s thoughts as “so correct,” Khrushcheva sai:

“I was just in Moscow and the Russians are saying ‘Look at those fools, look at their democracy.’ Absolutely,” she said. “‘How could America lecture us on any development, institutions, human rights, democracy, rhetoric when they just elected Donald Trump. He’s such a fool. He’s such a bully. That’s what America deserves and we’re going to take advantage of it.’ And that’s how Russians feel about it, and now it’s taking shape with letters from Vladimir Putin to Donald Trump with their exchange on potential nuclear armament.”

Commenting on whether Putin’s relationship with Trump will hinder an investigation into Russian hacking of the election, intelligence analyst Malcolm Nance said “of course it would” and laughed at how easily Trump can be manipulated.

“I don’t think there will be any accountability with the regards of the Russian hacking against the DNC or even violating the entirety of the U.S. electoral process. He has benefited from that,” Nance explained. “He’s going to shut down any investigation if it implicates him or his campaign.”

“However, Nina is right,” he continued. “We are being played as fools by a spymaster-in-chief, a former KGB officer, Director of Russian Intelligence. He’s laughing at us in his letters which stroke Donald Trump. ‘His excellency!’ We haven’t had a letter like that in the United States since King George III. As long as Trump is manipulated, Russia and China will take our market share from the international markets out there, and the United States will be relegated to a third class country.”
