Donald Trump has been far tougher on Russia than obama, who is the real traitor

The liberal media outrage over the last 24 hours is impressive. Predictable and stupid, but impressive.

Donald Trump has been far tougher on Russia than obama ever was. Obama was a push over for Russia:

Barack Obama sold out our Eastern European allies on missile defense. He slow-walked aid to Ukraine and did little more than shrug when Crimea was annexed.

He said “never mind” on his own “red line” in Syria and turned a blind eye to Putin’s intervention there, in large part because of his obsessions with getting the Iran deal.

The Russian meddling in our elections started on Obama’s watch — and not just our elections but those of many of our allies. When Mitt Romney famously said Russia was our No. 1 geopolitical foe, Obama mocked him for it as did countless liberal journalists who are now converts to anti-Russia hawkery.

Annexation of Crimea?

Invasion of  Georgia?

Invasion of Ukraine?

Nothing. obama just rolled over.

It was during obama's watch that Russia meddled in the 2016 US elections. He did absolutely nothing.

Trump, on the other hand?

In a text exchange, I asked one GOP lawmaker: If you believe Trump has been tougher on Russia, what is the best evidence? He quickly came back with a list. The U.S. is, he said:
  1. Bombing Syria, Russia's main client, and generally unleashing the U.S. military in Syria, including against Russians when necessary.
  2. Arming Ukraine.
  3. Browbeating NATO allies to increase defense spending.
  4. Adding low-yield nukes to our arsenal.
  5. Starting research and development on an INF noncompliant missile.
  6. Shutting Russia's San Francisco consulate.
Trump has repeatedly blamed the Russians for meddling, rightly putting blame on obama as well.

February 2018:

P​resident Trump continued his Twitter tirade about Russian involvement in the 2016 election on Monday, asking why his Oval Office predecessor didn’t “do something” when he was in command.

“​Obama was President up to, and beyond, the 2016 Election. So why didn’t he do something about Russian meddling?” Trump wrote.

July 2017
President Trump said Thursday that he agreed Russia interfered in the U.S. presidential race and slammed former President Barack Obama for doing nothing about it, saying he didn’t “choke” but made a political decision.

The president said Mr. Obama ignored Russian meddling in the election because he thought, as did most people, that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was going to win the election.

“The reason is he thought Hillary was going to win. If he thought I was going to win, he would have done plenty about it,” Mr. Trump said at a press conference in Poland. “His people said he choked. I don’t think he choked.”

Some democrats agreed that obama response to Russian meddling was impotent.

Trump should avoid a debate on “whose tougher on Russia” because it just plays into the Dems and deep state hands.

The real treason was committed by all of the participants and enablers of the Kenyanesian Usurpation.

The Constitution says Obama can’t be President.

He is not a natural born citizen.

He told US he was born a British subject.

Natural born citizens are naturally citizens because they only have one nationality, that’s what makes them natural born citizens.

BOTH parties colluded to violate the Constitution.

Those screaming the loudest are the traitors.

Governor Sarah Palin was much maligned and ridiculed for touting Alaska’s proximity to Russia during the campaign...what people forget is her prediction following Putin’s invasion of Georgia...

Palin said he would go for Ukraine next.

Everyone laughed.

The main person responsible for Obama EVER being President is Howard Dean....

HE was the head of the DNC when Obama SHOULD have been VETTED to determine his eligibility to even be President.

IF Dean had done his job correctly. Obama never would have been on the ballot. Charge Dean with TREASON, also.

Throwing around the word ‘treason’ here doesn’t look any more intelligent than when Democrats toss the word around.
