It’s “Russia if you’re listening” all over again, and essentially makes good on what he told @GStephanopoulos before the 2020 election: he’d be happy to collude with any foreign government if it’d help him win a U.S. election. pic.twitter.com/V33tWb19mC

The Washington Post:
… Just to put this in perspective, it was pretty objectionable when Trump asked Russia for help in 2016, but Putin wasn’t nearly the pariah he is now. A poll this week showed that just 1 percent of Americans have a positive view of Putin, compared with 88 percent who have a negative one (including 80 percent very negative). That’s entering territory generally reserved for your Osama bin Ladens, your Saddam Husseins and your Ayatollah Khomeinis.
To Trump, though, this appears to be merely a chance for yet more leverage. The logic seems to be: The American people hate you, so why not do something that at least a fair number of them might appreciate? (Indeed, that seems to be implicit in Trump’s comment that Putin “now would be willing” to do such a thing — apparently because the war in Ukraine has gone poorly for Russia?)
And indeed, that might not be a terrible bet. When is the last time a really substantial number of Republicans said they liked Putin? Right after Trump won in 2016, and we learned that Russia had interfered to assist in that victory. Favorable GOP views of Putin shot up from 16 percent the previous summer to 37 percent in one poll…
When Trump praised Putin’s strategic “genius” on the eve of the Ukraine invasion, perhaps Republicans could dismiss it as Trump providing pragmatic analysis — even as Trump conspicuously declined to judge Putin morally, and even as that narrower analysis aged poorly. Instead of condemning Trump, GOP leaders offered their own condemnations of Putin. And some who tried to toe Trump’s line, in varying ways, later corrected course.
Trump, though, is still playing the hits. And the hits apparently include seeing just how long his party and supporters will tolerate his treating a man they hate as a legitimate political ally. Because, as always, the point is winning.
Meanwhile on Russian state TV:
Host Evgeny Popov says it's time for the Russian people to call on Americans to change "the regime in the U.S." before its term expires "and to again help our partner Trump to become President."https://t.co/orPMoKoxwG pic.twitter.com/sPVDhVWm6Q

Somebody’s feeding him lines — my bet’s on Young Jared, at the behest of his Saudi paymasters, but that’s just *me*…
i'm not convinced that donald trump has ever had an original thought in his life; i assume absolutely everything he says is something he has overheard or something someone has told him, and i don't think his kids (esp. eric and junior) are any different
