Yeh, the Russians know—know we're in deep trouble, and, most jokingly, do not realize it, cannot bear to realize it, refuse to realize it until we're are powerless to deal with it.
The Russians know that at least a third of the country is composed of subhuman abominations hailing their messiah Trump, a cult seething with bigotry and hatred, empowered by this messiah to want to jail and maybe murder HIS political opponents. Russia knows that they can manipulate these lemmings of the Dotard to believe any lie HE tells, and disbelieve every venal and criminal act HE has partook in, because they are so empty, so stupid, so without soul or compassion, that the only thing of any substance they have to stuff into their meager, pathetic lives, is the justification of Donald Trump.
What a set up! The Russians probably had no idea how easy it would be to submerge an entire country into confusion and chaos, dividing it like cutting up a corpse. How obvious was it that Trump and his bullying oligarchs in his cabinet, and financiers like the Koch brothers and the Mercer clan, so much like the Kremlin coterie of Putin, could exploit a lot of hapless fools of whom they feel utter contempt and yet use them as tools to take over the country and turn it into an autocracy where THEY pull the strings of the autocrat.
Russia also knows the democrats are mere house cats, prey for the greedy vultures of political expediency of the most vicious kind. Russia knows Nancy Pelosi is a botox-ridden, enameled high-end pol so removed from the real country that she is only good for two things—raising money for libs and rallying additional rousing hatred from the already revved up right. Russia knows also that the democratic party has no fighters, no wolves in sheep clothing, but currently only velvet glove/moosh mouth Charles Schumer, who actually on the senate floor referred to a jowly little conniving twerp like McConnell as HIS good friend!
Russia knows, and laughs at this, rejoices in this. So much to rejoice over, say, like the moronic religious right, those lily-white believers in armageddon and the rapture, those Christ-crazed legions knowing only of the bible and despising any other ideas or beliefs, led by smooth talking hypocrites like Tony Perkins and Ralph Reed, and bellicose evangelist/business moguls like the progeny of Falwell and Graham, fellow spewers of hatred and bigotry, one minute preaching God and Jesus and motherhood and wholesome life styles, and the next minute praising and ballyhooing the worst criminal and crook in the country, claiming they are not here to “judge him,” and that Jesus wants us to “forgive him” for past evils, while the poor suffer and die from lack of health care, and every safety net of genuine compassion is stripped bare, bringing us back to the days of “every man for himself.”
Russia must chortle smugly at the leaders of the far right wolf pack who are daily trotted up on Fox News to deliver lying diatribes in defense of Trump, and lying diatribes against Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling, people actually elected into office in these United States, like toadies Jim Jordan, Louie Gomert, Matt Gaetz, to name only a few, and bolstered by the requisite pundits of the airways, and simpletons from rural areas with so much punching power they can justify a frontier mentality leading to the slaughter of citizens and mostly our young people by gun nuts protected by the NRA.
Yeh, Russia's over here, witnessing our slaughter, rejoicing over our unintentional cannibalism, our President in cahoots with THEIR president, and his values and morals and ideals, and his greed and contempt for its citizens and his narcissistic image of himself standing above his people on the highest exalted elevation and saluting a parade of military might, a military sucking up just about every necessary resource of his people.
Yeh, surely, Russia knows. Oh how they will rejoice when the GOP holds the House in 2018 after another propaganda onslaught coupled with crumbs for the peons from the new tax plan designed for instant gratification (our calling card), and oh how they will rejoice when the Mueller investigation exposes Trump and his Gestapo as colluding and obstructing, and nothing will be done about it, the cowardly republicans will fail to impeach, will castigate Mueller, the villains will be pardoned, Trump will be re-elected, and the Supreme Court will be stacked with sadistical Scalia think-a-likes..
Just what will they do with us, though, when we become them?
