Trump's Tweets on Russia Reveal His Continued Russia

This morning, Donald Trump published a series of tweets, which, on their face, are clearly designed to invite us to believe that the Very Serious and Strong United States President has had it with Russia trying to push us around.

After again insisting "No Collusion or Obstruction (other than I fight back)," he launched into a series of ranting tweets posted over several hours:

There's a lot going on here, starting with the fact that his messaging appears to be totally incoherent. He starts by ostensibly "threatening" Russia, but then inexplicably claims that it's an investigation which is causing "bad blood with Russia."

I say his messaging appears to be totally incoherent, because it isn't really, when you scrutinize what he's doing. Which is using his earlier tweets to publicly warn Russia that a response is coming.

Remember in his scary rant Monday night, he said: "We're making a decision as to what we do with respect to the horrible attack that was made near Damascus. And it will be met, and it will be met forcefully. And when, I will not say, because I don't like talking about the timing."

Because it has to be enough time for Russia to move their assets out of the way. And his "threatening" tweet was giving them the heads-up to get started on that.

Viewed through that lens, it's clear that all three tweets are still in service to his allegiance to Putin.

And indicative of his continued, breathtaking disloyalty to the United States.
