Trump Leaves for Europe, with Harsh Words for NATO and Kind Words for Putin

Donald Trump left this morning for a trip to Europe, where he may sabotage the NATO summit, will be greeted by carnivalian protests in the UK, and will have his first face-to-face meeting with Vladimir Putin, with whom he'll meet alone, leaving no official record of their talks.

On his way out, he naturally made a ridiculous and horrifying statement:

So I have NATO; I have the UK, which is in somewhat turmoil; and I have Putin. Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of 'em all. Who would think! Who would think!
Trump was asked if he views Putin as a friend or a foe, to which he replied: "I really can't say right now. As far as I'm concerned, he's a competitor. I think that getting along with Russia, getting along with China, is a good thing. It's not a bad thing."

It's not a bad thing to "get along with" the nation that launched an unprecedented attack to interfere in our last election, and is already mounting an attack on the next one. So says the U.S. president.
