Trump’s Closest Non-McConnell Ally Strikes Again
It appears that Vladimir Putin, whose best interests and long-term designs were key priorities of Donald Trump’s foreign policy throughout his one-term presidency, has once again tried to assassinate his influential public critic, Alexei Navalny. This time, Navalny was poisoned with a Soviet-era nerve agent associated with many previous deaths of Putin critics, while he was being transferred from Siberia to Germany for further treatment related to his recent recovery from the previous poisoning attempt on his life.
Luckily, the plane made an emergency landing and German medics were able to save Navalny’s life by administering an antidote that reverses the effects of the nerve agent. Perhaps everyone who criticizes Putin ought to be provided with a packet of that antidote to hang on a chain around his neck at all times. Needless to say, Donald Trump, the most enthusiastic and unabashed presidential cheerleader and apologist for a Russian dictator in the history of United States foreign policy, will not be needing one of those packets.
