Republican presidential candidate, Governor John Kasich of Ohio, unveiled a new website and video on Saturday, satirically touting a Trump-Putin 2016 bid for the White House, reported the New York Daily News. Gov. Kasich’s campaign even came up with an appropriate campaign slogan: “Make tyranny great again.” The beauty of this ticket is the balance. On the right is Donald Trump, a modern day, neo-Nazi. And on the left is the former KGB agent, a former Communist Party member, turned brutal, murderous dictator of his political enemies and journalists, Vladimir Putin. While it is not quite balanced geographically, the feeling in the Trump camp is that Putin’s support among angry, white males is universal.
In addition, John Kasich’s campaign sent out a press release. “In a bold and visionary move characteristic of everything he does, today terrific billionaire Donald Trump named Russian President Vladimir Putin as his running mate in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign,” the faux press release said. “Trump pledged that together with Putin he would ‘Make Tyranny Great Again.’ “
The bromance between Putin and Trump started with Putin quoted as saying about Trump. “He is a bright and talented person without any doubt,” Putin adding that Trump is “an outstanding and talented personality.”
Trump embraced the love on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Trump said last Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that, “sure” he’s happy about the nice things Putin said about him. “When people call you ‘brilliant’ it’s always good, especially when the person heads up Russia,” Trump said. “It is always a great honor to be so nicely complimented by a man so highly respected within his own country and beyond.”
CNN reported that Donald Trump responded on Sunday to the charges that his dear, murderous friend, Vladimir Putin, is really a “brutal, murderous dictator of his political enemies and journalists.” Trump defended Putin against these well-documented of killings of journalists in his country. Trump acknowledged that the killings of these reporters were “horrible” on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday, noting that Putin hasn’t admitted any role in their deaths.
“He’s always denied it. It’s never been proven that he’s killed anybody,” Trump said. “So, you know, you’re supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, at least in our country. It has not been proven that he’s killed reporters.” He added: “Now, I think it would be despicable if that took place, but I haven’t seen any evidence that he’s killed anybody in terms of reporters.”
There you have it. Putin says he didn’t do it and that is enough evidence for Donald Trump.
