Skip to comments.Trump and other top conservatives rally to Putin's side as he threatens Ukraine

Former President Donald Trump and many leading conservative figures have been praising Russian President Vladimir Putin as he threatens Ukraine with war. Meanwhile, many are also bashing President Joe Biden's attempts to deter Putin from an attack while trying to minimize the possibility of any direct combat between the nuclear superpowers.
While it's not unusual for former presidents to disagree with their successors on policy, it is unorthodox for them to shower a US adversary like Putin with flattery — particularly given the Russian leader is poised to launch a major military offensive on a US ally.
But this hasn't stopped Trump and some of his close allies from expressing admiration for Putin, including over the Russian president's misleading justifications to use force against Ukraine. The common thread in the Republican complaints seem to be attempts to blame the crisis Putin has stoked on Biden.

Yahoo is utter lying garbage.
Well yeah. Putin/Trump. Almost twins from what I hear. /$
This operation seems to be about smearing Trump as much as anything.
Wow! Sometimes the blatant propaganda of US media even surprises me.
Yahoo just went full MSNBC
To admit an adversary is smart and even smart enough to outsmart your own stupid leaders is not “praise”.
These are blatant lies.
The latest bit of Fake News...but so transparently obvious it is counterproductive (IMHO).
Did they mention anything about the Ukraine being the spot where the deep state cabal has their headquarters?
The MSM needs to detract from the fact that Putin only conquers countries when a Democrat is in the WH.
Over the period of the last several years the media has gone from somewhat subtle propagandists to crude, cartoonish, obviously fake news propagandists.
MAGA hath made them mad-a.
No one thinks Putin is a nice guy. But that’s different than saying Putin is making genius moves.
So the press has to lie.
And that the hornet’s nest of cabal criminals in the Ukraine might be part of what’s going on there?
If the cabal has a headquarters, shouldn’t we close it down?
No, it isn’t praise. It is telling everyone what we are up against.
Just flat out, shameless lies.
