Russia is laughing at the stupidity of Donald Trump and the American people who elected him to Office, and it’s truly terrifying to think that Vladimir Putin id using Trump as a part in his game of realpolitik.
Nina Lvovna Khrushcheva is an expert on Russian affairs and professor at The New School. She recently appeared on MSNBC Live and said Trump was playing “right into Putin’s hands.”
Host Sheinell Jones decided to ask Khrushcheva about the recent letter Putin had sent to Trump, Khrushcheva went on to say:
“I was just in Moscow and the Russians are saying ‘Look at those fools, look at their democracy.’ Absolutely.‘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 and whatnot.”
Her statement of what she saw in Russia is horrifying. They think of us as fools, and although most of us are against a Trump presidency, a lot of people did vote for him and that certainly is very foolish.
Intelligence analyst Malcolm Nance, who was also in the same round table discussion as Krushcheva, said there is no chance of accountability for individuals to be brought to justice for their participation in Russia’s hacking of the U.S. “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. He’s going to shut down any investigation if it implicates him or his campaign.”
Nance also went on to give his opinion on the future to come under Trump as the 45th President of the United States:
“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.”
Let’s hope that it doesn’t come to that.
