Republican Senate nominee Corey Stewart (Va.) was interrupted by audience laughter during a debate on Saturday after saying President Trump “stands up” to Russia.
Stewart, the controversial chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors, was participating in a debate against incumbent Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.).
He was attempting to attack Kaine’s responses to acts of Russian aggression during the Obama administration, such as when Russians shot down an aircraft over Ukraine or invaded Crimea.
“We have a president who is standing up to the Russians,” Stewart said.
He was met by loud laughter from both the audience and his opponent.
In light of Trump’s incredibly embarrassing joint press conference with Putin in Helsinki, it is almost impossible to believe that anybody would say such a stupid thing out loud and NOT expect to receive laughter from an audience.
Essentially you would have to be suffering from severe and irreparable brain damage not to realize that Donald Trump is Putin’s poodle and that he will do essentially everything his handler demands of him until he is forcibly removed from office.
So why would the good people of Virginia want to elect a Senator with such a poor grasp of reality?
I think Tim Kaine has this in the bag.
