I can’t believe this happened. I think we have entered the Twilight Zone.
Donald Trump thanked Russian President Vladimir Putin today for expelling American diplomats from the Russian embassy on the grounds that “we’re going to save a lot of money.”
“I want to thank him because we’re trying to cut down our payroll, and as far as I’m concerned I’m very thankful that he let go of a large number of people because now we have a smaller payroll,” Trump told reporters at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
“There’s no real reason for them to go back,” he added. “I greatly appreciate the fact that we’ve been able to cut our payroll of the United States. We’re going to save a lot of money.”
This is just too bizarre to comprehend. Trump has apparently vested to his BFF Vladimir Putin the responsibility to set staffing levels for the United States Department of State.
And where the hell is Secretary of State Rex Tillerson? His silence is deafening.
Well, I guess this proves who’s actually calling the shots in America these days. Yep, you got him, Vladimir.
