Trump-Putin In Helsinki Goes Down Really Badly With The Folks Back Home


"No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant."

- Sen John McCain

Well, we did say yesterday that Trump v Putin was like an amateur boxer going up against Muhammad Ali.

If Trump thinks he's grabbed a Media Victory for those back home, think again, because he's being torn to shreds across the board.

'Shameful' 'Treasonous' 'Disgraceful' were some of the words used from across the entire political spectrum today - and an awful lot of the slamming came from Trump's own Republican Party. 

Republican Senator Jeff Flake (Arizona) called it ...
Shameful. I never thought I would see the day when our American President would stand on the stage with the Russian President and place blame on the United States for Russian aggression. This is shameful.
Republican Senator Son Beyer (Michigan) said ...
It was the most astonishing display of weakness and submission that I have ever seen from an American President.
Republican Senator Justin Amash (Michigan) simply stated ...
Something is not right here.
Republican Senator William Hurd (Texas) who's a former CIA officer ...
I've seen the Russian intelligence manipulate many people in my career, and I never would have thought the US president would be one of them.
Republican Senator Bob Corker (Arkansas) said that Putin was probably celebrating after his joint appearance with Trump ...
I would guess he [Putin] is having caviar right now.
Abby Huntsman, a Fox News Reporter and daughter of U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman ...
No negotiation is worth throwing your own people and country under the bus.
A Senior Trump-Supporting National Security Expert ...
Trump was played like a fiddle. It was an unmitigated disaster. Embarrassing.
Republican Newt Gingrich, Former Speaker of the House ...
It is the most serious mistake of his presidency and must be corrected - immediately.
New York Post columnist Karol Markowicz ...
Call it here: this was atrocious and no American president should ever behave this way.
Former CIA director John Brennan ...
Nothing short of treasonous.
Former FBI director James Comey ...
This was the day an American president stood on foreign soil next to a murderous lying thug and refused to back his own country. Patriots need to stand up and reject the behavior of this president.
But the harshest words of all came from Democrat Senator John McCain ...
Today's press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. The damage inflicted by President Trump's naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate.

The President made a conscious choice to defend a tyrant against the fair questions of a free press, and to grant Putin an uncontested platform to spew propaganda and lies to the world.

No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant.
