Bill Kelly: Trump is taking America to a dark place

Trump says he takes Putin’s word on Russian interference, brings up Hillary Clinton
Speaking following their bilateral meeting in Finland, U.S. President Donald Trump said he trusts Vladimir Putin's word that Russia did not interfere in the 2016 election before bringing up Hillary Clinton's missing emails.

If the Saturday Night Live gang wanted to present the most outrageous Donald Trump skit of all time, they wouldn’t have to write one word of dialogue.

Instead, all they’d have to do is read the transcript of the farcical press conference with Trump and his puppet master, Vladimir Putin.

It was, according to both Republicans and Democrats, the most embarrassing performance by an American president, ever.

The leader of the most powerful country in the world played the submissive and obedient shill to one of the most heinous autocrats of all time.

You could see the smirk on Putin’s face as Trump denounced his own country’s rock solid evidence of Russian interference in the presidential election.

It was obvious as to who was the master and who was the submissive acolyte.

Remarkably, it was a former U.S. president who warned the United States about electing a megalomaniac like Trump.

He said: “We should beware of the demagogues who are ready to declare a trade war against our friends, weakening our economy, our national security and the entire free world — all while cynically waving the American flag.”

Those words were spoken, not by some left-leaning politician, but by Ronald Reagan, the godfather of American conservatism!

Trump has taken America to a dark place, and true conservatives like Reagan would be appalled that American voters allowed this to happen to their beloved country.
