Democrats have an opening as Trump rolls over for Putin

International politics has a long history of falling flat with American voters at the ballot box. But the untimely death of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has shined an important spotlight on Donald Trump’s cowardice and congressional Republicans’ dereliction of duty when it comes to providing aid to Ukraine.

Trump, who didn’t have the courage to condemn Russian President Vladimir Putin for Navalny’s death, instead tweeted out a mopey, self-obsessed, and abjectly delusional screed likening Navalny’s treatment in a Russian penal colony to his own here at home. 

“It is a slow, steady progression, with CROOKED, Radical Left Politicians, Prosecutors, and Judges leading us down a path to destruction,” Trump complained on Monday about finally facing accountability for a life spent cheating and swindling his fellow citizens.

Navalny was serving a 19-year prison sentence, complete with brutal stints in solitary confinement. Trump wouldn’t last six hours under such conditions. The day before Navalny died, he cheerfully elicited a few laughs from a judge during a court hearing in a video shared by Russia’s independent SOTA news service.
