We don’t want to be accused of taking anything out of context, so here’s what President Trump actually said in regards to our intelligence agencies and Vladimir Putin …
..so called American Intelligence were Dirty Cops who have now proven to be sleazebags at the highest level like James Comey, proven liar James Clapper, & perhaps the lowest of them all, Wacko John Brennan who headed the CIA, you could perhaps understand my reluctance to embrace!

Yes, that is what he said. To interpret his word soup, he accuses John Bolton of being stupid. Apparently Bolton is “stupid” because he claimed that Trump trusted and respected Vladamir Putin more than our intelligence agencies. Trump says that such a notion is ridiculous. He then goes on to call the heads of the FBI, CIA, and the Director of National Intelligence who all served with honor “dirty cops” and “sleazebags.”
For Vladamir Putin, there are no put-downs or derogatory references. But four honorable Americans are sleazebags, dumb, and dirty.
Which one do you think he trusts more? Which does he respect more?
Now, before someone gets all partisan and feels compelled to join Trump in his trashing of four honorable Americans who have dedicated their lives to the service of our country keep this in mind — all four of these men dedicated their lives to the service of their country. By the way, that country is The United States of America.
On the other hand, Vladimir Putin has also dedicated his life to the service of his country — Russia. Vladimir Putin was part of the KGB, the intelligence agency of The former Soviet Union. That is where his loyalty was and is.
Which would you trust? The four honorable Americans or the one who has dedicated his life undermining America?
Donald Trump has made his choice, and it is obviously Vladimir Putin.
Say what you will about Comey, Clapper, and Brennan. One doesn’t have to agree with anything they have done or any decision they have made. But then take a step back. Let’s say that you don’t trust or respect them for the sake of argument. But ask yourself, if they aren’t loyal to America, which government are they loyal to? There are only two choices here. America, or their enemies (like Russia).
We already know who Vladimir Putin is loyal to, and it certainly isn’t America.
The only question that remains is who is Trump loyal to at the end of the day? Again, there are only two choices.
Actually, he has tried to answer that question for us before. But frankly, most Americans missed it.
In July 2018, the place was Helsinki.
The event was a joint press conference with Trump and Putin.
At this event, Trump appeared to back Putin’s “we-didn’t-do-it” disinformation and discount the findings of the US intelligence community. “I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today,” Trump said, he then went on to say that Putin, “said it’s not Russia. I will say this. I don’t see any reason why it would be.”
Throughout his tenure, Trump has done very little besides praise Putin whenever the subject comes up.
Just in the last month, Trump admitted that he never even brought up the subject of Putin offering bounties on American soldiers. Something we learned via those same US intelligence agencies. Trump trusted Putin more on that, apparently.
Today’s tweet leaves no room for doubt, however. We now know who’s side Trump is on and he himself blasted that message to the whole world today. If any patriotic American cannot see that, then one must then question who they are loyal to … America or Trump?
