Donald Trump Says Something Stupid #32: Continues Bromance With Putin Says The Dictator Is A Better Leader Than President Obama

Last night both presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump spoke at NBC News' "Commander-In-Chief Forum". For the most part Clinton walked away unscathed but for Trump it was a different story.

While sitting in front of veterans of all ages and ranks Trump was asked various questions by host Matt Lauer about the military.

Here is an exchange in which Lauer asks Trump about his previous remarks in which he has lavished praise upon the Russian strongman...

Matt Lauer...

"Let me ask you about some of the things you’ve said about Vladimir Putin. You said, I will tell you, in terms of leadership, he’s getting an A, our president is not doing so well. And when referring to a comment that Putin made about you, I think he called you a brilliant leader, you said it’s always a great honor to be so nicely complimented by a man so highly respected within his country and beyond."

Donald Trump...

"Well, he does have an 82 percent approval rating, according to the different pollsters, who, by the way, some of them are based right here. Look, look…"

Lauer...

"He’s also a guy who annexed Crimea, invaded Ukraine, supports Assad in Syria, supports Iran, is trying to undermine our influence in key regions of the world, and according to our intelligence community, probably is the main suspect for the hacking of the DNC computers…"

Trump...

"Well, nobody knows that for a fact. But do you want me to start naming some of the things that President Obama does at the same time?"

Lauer...

"But do you want to be complimented by that former KGB officer?"

Trump...

"Well, I think when he calls me brilliant, I’ll take the compliment, OK?"


Later Trump told Lauer...

"The man has very strong control over a country. Now, it’s a very different system, and I don’t happen to like the system. But certainly, in that system, he’s been a leader, far more than our president has been a leader."

Yes, Putin, an ex-KGB, war criminal, who has opponents tortured and murdered is a superior leader and in addition has no rivals in the category of riding a horse shirtless as well! What a special love both he and Trump share.
