Welcome back, folks! In case you missed it, this summer we learned where our President’s allegiances lie. At the Helsinki Summit, he visibly acquiesced to Vladimir Putin, Russia’s iron-fisted President, at every turn. Putin has committed countless human rights violations, illegally annexed the Crimean Peninsula, and even went so far as to hack our elections. In capitulating to him, and opting to believe his version of events over that of our own intelligence community, Trump has shown us his true colors.
