Foer went as far as to directly label Trump as Putin’s Puppet.

Continuing the “puppet” meme, Newsweek writer Maxim Trudolyubov noted “Trump has shattered the Republican orthodoxy on Russia, promising to get along with Moscow and heaping praise on Putin.”

Trudolyubov then asked the question Is Trump Putin’s Puppet?

Puppet Theory

Trudolyubov asked the question and never even bothered to answer it.

I will. The question is a joke, and Foer is a fool. No one is pulling Trump’s string.

Indeed, the Democrat and Republican leadership hate Trump precisely because he is no one’s puppet.

Talking with Russia is the smart thing to do. The sanctions on Russia were a huge mistake, but more so for Europe than the US. The US could have and should have opened relations with Iran after 911 but the neocons would have none of it.


The Real Puppet

The irony of the Sate article is Hillary Clinton is the real puppet! For starters, Hillary is a puppet of the progressives, the SEIU and public unions in general, and the warmongers.

The neocons so desperately want a war-puppet they can control, they are willing to overlook the fact that Clinton is a puppet of other groups the warmongers do not support.

What the Establishment Wants (In Lyrics)

Pull the string and I’ll wink at you, I’m your puppet
I’ll do funny things if you want me to, I’m your puppet
I’ll be yours to have and to hold
Darling you’ve got full control of your puppet
Pull another string and I’ll kiss your lips, I’m your puppet
Snap your finger and I’ll turn you some flips, I’m your puppet
Your every wish is my command
All you gotta do is wiggle your little hand
I’m your puppet, I’m your puppet

I’m Your Puppet
