Russia Historian: Trump Has a Crush on Putin

CNN's Fareed Zakaria on Sunday interviewed Simon Sebag Montefiore, a historian who has written extensively about Russia, about President Donald Trump's seeming infatuation with Russian President Vladmir Putin. When asked by Zakaria why Trump has seemingly verbally attacked every major country in the world except Russia, Montefiore explained that Trump envies that kind of power and prestige that Putin and past Russian leaders have enjoyed as heads of state. "Donald Trump wants to be the first American czar," he explained. ... "He looks at Vladimir Putin and he sees a man who ... has control of violence, who can order interventions into foreign countries at the click of a hand," he explained. "I think that is a slightly boyish crush on the idea of the gangster boss."

Donnie admires the President for Life model, the control of the media, the appointing of personal thugs to high gov/business posts, the invading neighbors on a whim, and, best of all, the percentage off the top of all yuge bidness deals.
