Did I hear this correctly?
Donald J. Trump goes to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and declares that Germany is under Russia’s “total control.”
Is this man, the president of the United States, in touch with the real world? Don’t answer that. He isn’t.
What’s more, for this president to declare that another great power is under the thumb of Russia utterly is laughable on its face. Not because he is wrong. It is because many Americans back home believe the president himself is under the control of a nation that attacked our electoral system.
