This week will not reflect well for Republicans when the historians look back and document the extraordinary events that hit us every day.

Then some idiot seeking PR named Tucker Carlson gave the Russian dictator two hours to babble on about his version of reality.

Meanwhile, Putin had decided to murder his biggest Russian adversary, Alexei Navalny, who many consider a great Russian Patriot, as he rotted in an Arctic prison camp. Here in the US, where public opinion overwhelmingly supports funding Ukraine in its desperate fight for freedom against war criminal Putin, the Republican House of Representatives went on a two week vacation to avoid an aid bill that had a good chance of passing with bipartisan support, all while Ukrainians die daily.

That bill was killed by Donald Trump because it would give his opponent Joe Biden a win, a win the American people want. The same Donald Trump who leads a wind shift in his party to somehow find Vladimir Putin an admirable guy, even as he ruthlessly murders his opponents…
