Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, October 21, 2017

Russian President Vladimir Putin has called on U.S. citizens to stop disrespecting President Donald Trump, a trend that the Russian leader called a symptom of a poor political system in the U.S. Putin, who U.S. officials have accused of swaying the 2016 U.S. presidential race in Trump's favor, broke a streak of hostile diplomatic exchanges between the two leading powers during a speech Thursday in order to defend his former political ally from what he considers unfair criticism at home. Speaking at the Valdai Discussion Club in Sochi, Putin again denied any claims of Russian interference in last year's U.S. elections, asserting that Trump "won honestly" and that he and his supporters have behaved legitimately in response to the current U.S. political climate. "Inside the country, disrespect is shown for him. This is a regrettable negative component of the U.S. political system," Putin said, according to the state-run Tass Russian News Agency.

Old Vlad has the planet just where he wants it with the way the Commander in ----- has been alienating the US from its allies...I'm actually surprised he spoke up at all, I fully expected him to just sit back and watch the show in silence with a big old bowl of garlic popcorn.

Vlad can't eat garlic. Smart Russians hang it over their doors when he's in town.

Stand By Your Man

"Even though he's hard to understand
And if you love him, oh be proud of him
'Cause after all he's just a man.
Stand by your man, give him two arms to cling to
And something warm to come to
When nights are cold and lonely.
Stand by your man, and show the world you love him
Keep giving all the love you can.
Stand by your man.
Stand by your man, and show the world you love him
Keep giving all the love you can.
Stand by your man."

"Even my most left wing partisan friends stopped using the dotard slur a long time ago..."

I have to admit that a month under Trump does seem like years but is Sept 22 really "a long time ago" already?

Maybe your "left wing partisan friends" are not really all that left wing then?

Anyway it was such an awesome retort that cuts right to the quick it is hard to leave it behind.

Kind of like "O'bummer" eh?

The title basically says it all.
Thanks, #Trumpvoters!
Now we know why Republicans want to destroy public secondary and higher education: a dumbed-down populace will ALWAYS vote for the biggest bully and shouter in the room.

Trump's not gonna like it when Pootie-poot starts giving HIM orders. Of course, that depends whether or not we let this traitorous scumbag stay in office. Mueller may be the one who settles both their hash.

Not a chance. Rocket Man isn't even insulting whereas Dotard schooled the whole nation for moment.

...and once again, we are witness to Putin's brilliant manipulation of popular opinion in the USA, especially who they love and who they'll vote for.

All he has to do is will it and it shall be. Who is the real Manchurian Candidate now?

Classic example of a lie repeated until it becomes accepted as truth.

I remember during the Cold War how the American media loved to publicize Soviet news to show Americans how stupid Soviet propaganda is.

The tables have reversed. The Russian media loves to expose Russians to American stupidity.

Glad you made that clear. I thought you believed it.

On this site, many have stated they believe the Russians stole the election. I've been criticized for calling it a joke. Even once censored.

Even if the Russians did everything they're accused of, all of which is unproven, its not as important or relevant to the outcome as Republican voter suppression or this on 60 Minutes:

From the 60 minutes interview:

"As for Brad Parscale, he's already working on President Trump's 2020 reelection campaign."

Should send shivers down a liberal's spine.
