Do it to them

Rebecca Morin at Politico on Trump’s grotesque “Russia is helping the Democrats!” tweet:

“I’m very concerned that Russia will be fighting very hard to have an impact on the upcoming Election. Based on the fact that no President has been tougher on Russia than me, they will be pushing very hard for the Democrats. They definitely don’t want Trump!” the president tweeted.

The tweet follows a week of backlash from Republicans and Democrats alike from the president’s summit with Vladimir Putin, in which he appeared to side with the Russian president over his own intelligence officers on whether Moscow interfered in the 2016 election.

During that same news conference, Putin explicitly stated that he did want Trump to win, which undercuts Trump’s Tuesday tweet.

Oops. I guess Don forgot that part.

Norm Eisen is quite forthright about it.
