Republicans may delusionally claim that their sham investigation has shown that there was “no collusion” between Trump’s people and Russia, but Russian state media seems to disagree (as does Robert Mueller, who has been indicting and getting guilty pleas from Trump associates left and right).
Upon hearing that Trump fired Rex Tillerson directly following his remarks that Russians had poisoned a U.K. spy, Russian journalist Olga Skabeeva triumphantly announced:
Yesterday Tillerson supported Theresa May in her ‘highly likely’ Russian accusation. And Trump immediately fired him. Trump is ours!
This isn’t the first time Skabeeva has celebrated state ownership of the gigantic orange buffoon in the White House. She also absolutely gushed when The Donald refused to enforce sanctions against Russia.
“Seemingly, Trump is ours again. So far, he’s being quiet and not supporting the sanctions,” she said at the time.
“Well, it seems that way,” a male host ageed.
We know it. The world knows it. Despite their claims to the contrary, Republicans know it: Trump is wholly owned by Vladimir Putin. It’s time for our frenemies on the Right to do something about it. But since they won’t, be sure to break the not-so-proud tradition among Democrats of staying home during midterm elections. This one’s more important than any other in recent history.
Watch her celebrate below:
