Republicans HATED Putin… Until Trump Told Them He’s Cool


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Trump has a frightening grip on the beliefs of a large segment of the population. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"American conservatives have always had a weird adoration for Russian president Vladimir Putin thanks to, in part, his macho leadership and old-school nationalism. But following the annexation of Crimea in March 2014, most Americans — including Republicans — held an unfavorable opinion of Putin. According to a July 2014 The Economist/YouGov poll, 76 percent of Republicans didn’t like him, compared to only 10 percent who did like him.

As of December 2016, the same pollsters found that Putin’s net favorability had jumped 55 points among Republicans — with 37 percent saying they have a positive opinion of him.

The most recent poll’s conclusion comes at a time when U.S. intelligence agencies have determined that Russia helped President-elect Donald Trump win the election by deliberately targeting his opponent, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Trump, for his part, has denied Russia’s involvement, tweeting that the CIA’s findings should be taken with a grain of salt because “it is very hard to determine who was doing the hacking.” While senate Republicans have pushed for a formal inquiry into Russia’s culpability, Trump has rejected his daily security briefings and has given zero indication that he wants to know who was responsible for the cyberattack against the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign.”*

      From Europe here, I confirm the USA is a worldwide laughing stock thanks to
      republicans and Trump. Now the educated part of the world looks down on the
      USA. Congratulations on electing a thin skinned sexual offender buffoon.
      China and Russia are going to enjoy the next 4 years.

      Don’t you get tired of being wrong all the time? Have you been sleazy for
      so long it doesn’t bother you, because I need a shower just for replying.
      You have no honor.

      How are we supposed to see their side when it’s all fabrication. How can
      anyone be convinced of anything when they don’t value facts, evidence, and
      the truth. Surely they can’t all be theists. Idiocracy and global warming;

      they sold their oil in Roubles or the Chinese yuan, America would be a
      different country today with a much worse economy. So the the last thing

      themselves regularly.Take this video for example “Republicans love Putin
      because Trump told them to” but doesn’t that contradict their previous
      “Republicans love Putin because of how he controls power” video? which btw
      was posted back in 2014.

      You do realize that the left voted for a woman who was a warmonger and a
      corporatist. Putin had nothing to do with Trump. It was because Putin is
      fighting ISIS in Syria while Obama and Hillary are supporting them.

    Republicans follow like sheep, they don’t run off critical thinking.

    • Posted by redwhitedude, at Reply

      Jolly Froster Trump begrudgingly supported it based on the information that
      was available to the public. He was part of the public so even though it
      looks that Trump contradicted himself, the public was lied to and deceived.
      You cannot crucify him for being a hypocrite in this case because of that.

    • Posted by Jolly Froster, at Reply

      Exactly. His reluctant answer on Stern based on what the public was told
      wasn’t the same as Clintons vote who had information we did not have.

    • Posted by Brent Showers, at Reply

      Jolly Froster trump supported it vocally friend and it’s even on YouTube
      interviews . Bernie led the opposition in the congress. Regardless of the
      information . I was in third grade didn’t have all the info and still knew
      the Iraq war was a mistake not having the info isn’t a excuse it really
      isn’t . If it took the logic I had when I was that young no one has a
      excuse especially him who had the resources himself to look into

    • Posted by Jolly Froster, at Reply

      +Brent Showers
      He had the the resources to look into it? He wasn’t in government, he had
      no resources. Also if you actually listened to the Stern interview he was
      very reluctant. And like I said Hillary didn’t learn anything as she did
      the same in other countries and was threatening Russia, a nuclear power,
      with war.
      I would think the left would be happy that Trump won because he is
      actually more to the left which is why he won the working class.
      What other republican would have held the LGBT flag while campaigning?

      MarcianusImperator Speculation and denial based on perceived ambition is
      fine and may comfort you, but just because it sounds ridiculous to you
      doesn’t mean it’s ridiculous to her. She knew exactly what she was saying
      and the circumstances in which she was saying it. She wanted the no fly
      zone. Russia and the Syrian government had their war planes buzzing all
      over aleppo and other major areas of Syria. (They still do). You had a top
      United States general say OPENLY that to control the airspace in Syria
      would mean war with Russia and Syria. Iran would have likely have gotten
      involved as well. Hillary not only supported the Iraq war, but look at what
      has happened in Libya as her being secretary of state. If we are to
      speculate anything, the idea she was trying to pander to the “anti putin”
      crowd is ridiculous to me considering the main group she had to win over
      were Bernie Sanders supporters, who are among the largest anti war
      demographic along with libertarians.
