The announcement was made over the weekend that Russia will eject 755 American diplomats from their nation. I suppose that by Tuesday morning CNN and Chuck Schumer will begin blasting Donald Trump for being unpresidential by shooting his mouth off about some issue and offending Vladimir Putin to the extent that Putin has ordered the ouster of the 755 American diplomats. CNN has been breathlessly awaiting this moment so they can remind us of how diplomatic Obama was on the international scene, how erudite John Kerry was with other nations and how Trump is destroying America’s credibility with every nation by acting like a real person and telling the truth.
It’s true that Putin has made the announcement of the expulsions, but it’s related to new legislation passed by the House and Senate implementing sanctions against Russia for its actions in Ukraine, not something Trump said or did. But I believe they will not miss this opportunity to blast President Trump even if there is no backing in reality for it. They’ve been doing just that with the Russia/collusion thing for months, so why would they stoop to telling the truth at this point?
But, in all honesty, would it surprise you to hear, after six months of CNN and Schumer riding Trump like a cheap mule for being too cozy with Putin and for colluding with Russia to assure the defeat of Hillary in the last presidential election, that now the liberals would reverse direction and blast Trump for not being diplomatic enough with Putin, and probably Kim Jong-Un of North Korea, as well, if he were indeed the reason for the international incident occurring in Moscow?.
One has to feel sorry for CNN and American liberals that this time Trump is not to blame for a foreigner objecting to something America did, and in fact this evidence of Putin’s anger would be prima facie evidence that Trump was never a tool of Russia, but don’t expect anyone on the left to give Trump the benefit of a doubt that he is somehow at fault for this international scandal.
Our President just keeps on keeping-on and doing the things he promised to do during the last presidential campaign. Any thinking person has to love this guy.
