Garry Kasparov Has A Few Words

You remember Kasparov, Russian chess champion, Putin dissenter, now in exile. He's paying attention to The Donald's comments, the current reference to 2nd amendment people. Here's a link to his current tweets:

Here's a small sample:

"Putin's followers often "joke" about opposition leaders being killed. Posters with crosshairs, etc. Then they are murdered and it's no joke."

Winter is coming. Wake up, America. From a man who's been there.

3. Yes, He Has

Kasparov's book 'Winter Is Coming' is a stark reminder of what Putin's Russia has become. Particularly for those who disagree with Putin's formula for Russian renewal. Put's Trump's ardent Putin-love into a whole different perspective.

I'm officially creeped out by Trump's mindlessness and his need to work his supporters/followers into a lather. The man is dangerous. Period, full stop.
