21. Actually Putin is spreading the disease.

Trump is just a carrier of the virus. The far right and ultra far right around the world are being infected, and every day citizens are coming under their spell. Skynet wasn't fully deployed in just a day.

22. Putin's economy is less than 1/10th size of Xi's economy

All I see in stores is products made by Xi's country (made in China).
I am still looking for something made in Russia.
May be I should try a Vodka store.

25. How is Putin winning here in US?

U.S. jobless claims dip to 211,000, and they are now near half-century lows. We also saw U.S. consumer sentiment reach a 15-year high.

36. Donald Trump is president...

...and all his major cabinet and white house picks are unqualified drifters hellbent on destroying our governing infrastructure. All thanks to Putin.

39. More Americans have jobs, Putin or no Putin

Only power Putin has is to employ workers posting on social media to create chaos here in elections. He has no economic power like China has.

42. agreed Russia is weak economically...

43. Best thing voters can do is..

to ignore social media propaganda, and do their own home work on issues. If they did that Putin would be powerless.

51. There is no evidence for this.

Many political as well as commercial players now use targetted social media before, during and after election campaigning... As the Brexit Leave campaign showed, with assistance of US as well as UK origin, this can be illegal, corrupt and corrupting. Has any serious research shown what proportion of this might be of Russian or any other overt or covert State origin, internationally and particularly in Europe?

7. This is depressing.. Fascism winning without a fight..

How did this happen? At 71, I'm looking at the downside, but I fear for the future. That said, the "green wave" looks a bit promising. The oligarchs might allow that to a point.

2. But of course

No TRUE American could disagree with their socialist agenda. No one voted for Trump, the Ruskies stole the election. Barr is a Russian agent too.

All Russia all the time.

6. It took Donald Trump for the left to renounce the Russkies.

Of course, when the Soviet Union posed an actual existential threat to the US, the left warmly embraced the Communists.

7. When it finally hits them just how irrevelevent they are to the world it will be like

Jim Jones offering the kool-aide, they will drink it. Imagine waking up one to realize you have been wrong your entire life. You wasted years being a hate-filled tool for a political ideal.
