"Vladimir Putin, a ruthless authoritarian kleptocrat, is trying to influence an American presidential election, and he intends to employ all means, fair and foul, though mostly foul, to put the man he wants leading the United States in the Oval Office."
"If Trump loses, the entire Congress should be required to take a field trip to Independence Hall to remind it of the compromises on which our country was based, with a special mandatory session for diehards. I know I'm dreaming. Yet, unless the Trumpsters learn to respect America's history and its founders, they will take our democracy down."
It is easy to see why a man like Donald Trump admires Putin. They both share a penchant for posturing, a fetish for unhindered power, a disdain for institutions and for the law, an extremely high self-regard, and a tendency to act unpredictably. So, if you are comfortable with Trump admiring Putin’s leadership style, then you must also be comfortable for Putin’s results. Donald Trump will not more make America great again, he will remake it in the image of Putin’s Russia — weakened and isolated.

'There's a lot of excitement in terms of the possibilities for creating a better situation.'"
