When Vladimir Putin decided to invade Ukraine, Conservative media opined that Joe Biden couldn’t handle the Russian President the way Donald Trump could. Of course, Trump frequently praised Putin. The Russian President was getting everything he wanted, so he had no reason to step on Trump’s toes.
And while Trump isn’t in office anymore, Russian state media would very much like to see him return to power. During a recent spot on Russian TV, a host raged that America is looking to put “Our Trump” in prison.
Evgeny Popov began, “The Department of Justice opened a criminal case against our own Donald Trump! They’re investigating Trump’s actions before the storming of the Capitol last January and his attempts to nullify the outcome of a fake, unfair, falsified U.S. presidential election.”
The host continued, “They’re trying to pull it off by the midterms in order to put Trump behind bars by November. Otherwise, the Democrats have no chance of winning. So the Democrats have decided to eliminate their biggest competitor — our Trump.”
Popov then ripped off some Fox News talking points, saying that Democrats only care, “about perverts, the sexual education of children and protections of the transgenders.”
