    On Sunday June 19th Fareed has an interview with Putin; as you may know Putin is an supporter of Trump (at least the media thinks so) however it is clear that Putin says so because Trump is way to stupid to realize what Putin is up to. Putin wants "lebensraum" no US interference in his "game" If Trump wants to be "buddies" with him, then he does not realize why. Like the Ukraine split up, No missiles in Romania and Poland etc. out of NATO ;he wants expansion.

    Both Putin and Trump play politics on everything. I wouldn't be trustful of what either said. Both play on ignorance and emotions.

    I hoped you did see that interview; it shows that Putin is an hell of an lot smarter politician than Trump. We are the laughing stock of the world with this guy. Anyway Putin said the same thing as I said many times: the US is meddling in everything in the world and stick their noses in other peoples business as well we are the ones "provoking" everyone; like China, like the Romanian missile placement by the US. etc. Putin said NATO has no function because he does not intent to attack it. I guess the main reason is the terrible things the Russians went through in Stalingrad; something like that has never occurred on US soil, so they know what war does and still is burned in their foreheads. Warmongers here don't understand that.

    Laughing stock? Well at least we can laugh and joke about Trump as a candidate. What would happen to certain Russian citizens if they carried on the same way joking about Putin?

    Schmidt, you should know better; Putin is in power; Trump is not ( yet). I guess if Trump becomes our President, then you will stop laughing. Anyway this guy (Trump) is worse than Putin, but more like Hitler since he wants to "badge" the Muslims here, just like Hitler did with the Jews. At least Putin does not go that far.

    We have a freedom of speech First Amendment. I have seen more shit (jokes, vitriol, lies, hate speech, etc.) written about President Obama...and other stuff that will a person an interview with the Secret Service. Putin has nothing negative written about him, and for the few who have dared to challenge him, somehow they have ended up dead. Remarkable.

    Yes Putin is in power in large part because he controls the media. His approval rating in Russia is consistently in the order of 90 percent. Wow...we should admire that? And call him a great leader?

    Power is Russia is not measured in the same way power is measured in America.

    And no I am not laughing. As you know I have been solidly behind President Obama and Hillary Clinton, despite all the lies said about them both. The Hillary haters live in an alternative universe of believing Republican talking points...and maybe also Putin's talking points.

    Yes, of course you realize; what was exactly my point, that the Russian "system" does not compare to ours. Neither is it an Capitalistic or Democratic system. Putin at least acts as an "politician"; Trump does not.

    Anyway Hillary is not clean either, but I will vote for her regardless; but I still don't like (not hate) arrogant "ego" trippers like her either.

    At least a bit better than Hitler Trump.
