Just ‘roll over and ask Putin to scratch his belly’: Tapper panel blasts ‘submissive’ Trump response to Russia

A Thursday CNN panel blasted President Donald Trump for his response to Russian President Vladimir Putin expelling 755 American diplomats from Russia.“First of all, it’s not going to help cut payroll at all. That’s just not how government budgets work,” said host Jake Tapper. “Beyond that, what Putin did was an anti-American action. Period. That’s all it was. That’s the definition of an anti-American action, and there President Trump is thanking him for carrying it out.”

“The Center for American Progress’ Neera Tanden agreed, reminding viewers that Putin’s actions were taken in response to the sanctions imposed by the United States for the 2016 involvement in the election. “It is a bizarre act for the American president to take the side of a foreign government against our own State Department personnel being expelled,” she said. “When we first heard that he had said this I think we all thought to ourselves, ‘maybe he was joking, he was trying to be funny,’ but there wasn’t any obvious attempt at humor there,” Tapper continued. Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) previous communications director Amanda Carpenter was aghast as well.
