6 Reasons For Donald Trump’s Insane Man-Crush On Vladimir Putin

by JohnGallagher July 31, 2016

Donald Trump clearly loves Vladimir Putin. The list of times that Trump has sucked up to Putin is long and growing by the day. Putin has returned the favor, throwing the weight of the Russian media behind Trump.

In this case, it’s not a case of opposites attracting, but of the same: authoritarian bullies who are building their personal empires.

Here are six specific reasons why the pair were a match made in–well, you figure it out:

Why ask when you can just grab?

Trump has a well-earned reputation for stiffing people who work for him.  In fact, it’s one of his few unchangeable characteristics. Putin, of course, just takes what he wants, too.  Putin is even better at it than Trump; he may be one of the wealthiest men in the world.

NATO is for losers

Trump would happily withdraw from NATO unless the participating countries are willing to pay financial tribute. It’s a sharp departure from what most of the West views as a critical tool to check Russia’s expansionist impulses. Putin would love to see NATO disappear so he can go about annexing (by force if necessary) all the small republics that were once part of the USSR.

There are no good neighbors

Trump hates Mexico for sending all of those people to the U.S. Build a wall, make Mexico pay for it–Trump wants to humiliate our southern neighbor. Putin wants to crush his neighbors as well: Crimea, the Ukraine. He may end up giving Donald some unwelcome ideas.

Gays make for good political props

For Trump, we’re the victims of terrorism in Orlando, so we should side with the strong man who will protect us. The message is so far right that even Ted Cruz uses it. For Putin, we’re destroying Russian society, even though he has claims to have no problem with us on a personal level. Bashing gays is a handy political line to feed to the Orthodox Church, which Putin leans on for support.

Vanity unites!

Putin likes to parade around with his shirt off, although if anyone had reason for covering himself in a button down, it’s Vladimir. Apparently, Putin thinks he’s some kind of Adonis of the steppes. As for Trump–just looking at the hair tells you everything you need to know.

Charter members of the Elton John fan club

Both Trump and Putin are big fans of Elton John. There’s no accounting for taste.

Only One Candidate Looked Presidential At The Debate. It Wasn’t The Orange One.

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

For most Americans, tonight’s debate was the most time they’ve ever spent with Donald Trump. With any luck, it filled them with horror. For sheer unhinged lunacy, Trump was hard to beat. He can’t ever admit that he makes a mistake, so he doubled down on his birtherism lies.  He denied saying things he was proven to [...]

It Only Took Twenty Minutes For Trump To Unleash His Dom Side

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Well, that didn’t take long. Donald Trump decided that the way he proves he looks presidential is to start shouting over the woman in the room (and the African-American moderator). Unfortunately for him, Hillary isn’t a sub. If anything, she’s showing that she’s the dom here by goading Trump. Her line that he’s not paying any taxes [...]

Donald Trump Kicks Off The Debate By Thanking His Dad and The Housing Crisis

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Donald Trump is off to a great start: he acknowledged that he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and that he hoped to profit off the housing crisis.  And God bless Clinton for saying that Trump lives in his own reality. If by reality, you mean make-believe universe, that’s totally accurate.
