Trump, Putin and journalists
I admit that I never even heard of Putin killing journalists until after Trump received a glowing endorsement from Putin, then all of a sudden this makes Trump evil because Putin murders journalists. I tried to research this on Google, but found nothing. You would think that if this were really a big issue, there would have been a least one major New York Times story predating Putin’s praise of Trump exposing Putin’s killing of journalists.
This blog post by Anatoly Karlin puts things into better perspective. Our supposed “ally” Recep Erdoğan is the one who has been imprisoning massive numbers of journalists. We really need to kick Turkey out of NATO ASAP. (Turkey was a decent place when the secular military controlled it, but now that they have a democracy of Muslims the country is clearly going to hell.)
So there are allegations that maybe Putin is behind the deaths of one or two journalists, but what about the allegations that the Clintons were behind the death of Vince Foster? And then there is the fact* that Bill Clinton personally raped a woman, which is a pretty serious crime, but no one cares about that.

*Well it’s an alleged fact, but a pretty compelling one that I think is most likely true.
