Putin Loves His 'useful Idiots' — Trump Included

President Donald Trump's authoritarianism, narcissism and racism threaten our democracy, but his gullibility threatens our national security. A man so uneducated and incurious about the world is willing, like his followers, to buy any crackpot conspiracy theory that makes its way to him via the Infowars-"Fox & Friends" pipeline. On the world stage, that makes him a sitting duck for slick manipulators and experienced flatterers.

All that was much in evidence on Saturday. CNN reports:

"'He said he didn't meddle. He said he didn't meddle. I asked him again. You can only ask so many times,' Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One as he flew from Da Nang to Hanoi in Vietnam. Trump spoke to Putin three times on the sidelines of summit here, where the Russia meddling issue arose.

"'Every time he sees me, he says, "I didn't do that,"' Trump said. 'And I believe, I really believe, that when he tells me that, he means it.'
