Trump putin collusion

Trump said this at the beginning of the invasion:

"This is genius.’ Putin declares a big portion of the Ukraine — of Ukraine — Putin declares it as independent. Oh, that’s wonderful,” Trump said in a radio interview with “The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show.” “He used the word ‘independent’ and ‘we’re gonna go out and we’re gonna go in and we’re gonna help keep peace.’"

Now putin is threatening nukes with a statement paraphrased saying we will defend our annexed territory and people with nukes if need be. He thinks he is defending pure Russians from Ukrainians in some sort of distorted thought process.

His nuke statement and trumps explanation of what he thought was happening are way too similar. To me there is no question putin explained this thought process to Trump before the invasion, and got Trump on board with it.

2. Why would Putin explain anything to Trump?

Trump was out of office. He'd served his role of sowing chaos; Putin doesn't need him any more.

4. Trump doesn't need to "know" something to rant about it.

5. trump is way too stupid

to come to that conclusion by himself. Putin had to put that in his head. Who says this wasn't communicated during his presidency?

6. trump used putin, putin used trump - now hopefully they're both fucked.

Everything trump touches dies. Everything putin touches dies.

Remember jared kushner's big, secretive push to establish a back channel to Russia. That's one of many things that I don't hear about anymore.

7. I dunno. tRump remembering a thought from one moment to the next?

Maybe PUT-IN had explained it and there were witnesses, who re explained it at PUT-IN's request so tRump seems to show support.

Still think tRump is more a delusional puppet, than a thinking anything
