Trump Bypasses Media’s Criticisms Of Him Requesting Putin Release Dirt on Hunter Biden

( Last week, former President Trump unleashed a backlash of anger after suggesting in a recent interview that Vladimir Putin may be able to answer the question of why Hunter Biden’s company received $3.5 million from the widow of former Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov.

In an interview with “just the News” last Tuesday, Trump brought up the $3.5 million payment initially revealed in a Senate report in 2020. Suggesting Putin might know the details of the payment, Trump told John Solomon that, now that he isn’t a fan of the United States, Putin may release information about this financial deal.

Unsurprisingly, the usual suspects in the media and Washington were horrified at Trump’s comments.

During her press briefing on Wednesday, White House communications director Kate Bedingfield blasted Trump accusing him of trying to “enter into a scheme with Vladimir Putin.”

Naturally, the weepy RINO Congressman Adam Kinzinger also chimed in, saying that Trump’s off-hand remark in his interview “is absolutely undermining the national security” of the United States. Kinzinger added that making that remark should disqualify Trump from “any reelection.”

But rather than ignore the screams of outrage, Trump doubled down.

On Wednesday, the former president released one of his ubiquitous statements singling out the hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” for getting upset over his suggestion. He said Joe Scarborough “and his psycho wife, Mika” didn’t think he should be asking Russia for information about the $3.5 million payment Hunter got, then added, “In time, Russia may be willing to give that information.”

Trump then veered off attacking the “Fake News” for claiming he called Putin a genius, explaining that what he said was Putin’s build-up on the Russian/Ukraine border before the invasion was genius “because I assumed he would be easily able to negotiate a great deal for Russia” and NATO would give him what he wanted.

Then Trump blamed the Biden administration’s “WEAK” foreign policy for Putin going too far.
