It’s pretty clear that Vladimir Putin thinks of a certain orange haired con man as a useful idiot. For four years, our U.S. president presided over the weakening of NATO, the hero worship of brutal autocrats, a clear distain for friendly democracies, and the enabling of the engine of Russian disinformation.
But what if there is more to the story? What if Putin himself is merely a useful idiot? If so, the terrible tragedy unfolding in Ukraine might be just the beginning of something even more tragic.
