After setting the media landscape ablaze by sending out a ridiculous “fire and fury” threat to North Korea, President Donald Trump is once again conceived, poorly timed, and completely tone-deaf comment in support of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

When Putin decided to boot 750 or so American Embassy staffers from Russia, Trump gave an equally laughable response to it.

Trump said, “I want to thank him because we’re trying to cut down our payroll and as far as I’m concerned I’m very thankful that he let go of a large number of people.”

Almost immediately backlash ensued and it showed no sign of slowing down. Amongst them was Michael McFaul, former Ambassador to Russia under President Obama lambasted Trump on Twitter for his insensitive and completely unpresidential comment.

In a 10-part tweet storm, McFaul eviscerated Trump for supporting President Putin and how the latter sees this as a weakness in the former.

We’ve combined his tweets into one continuous monologue for your convenience.

“Trump just applauded cuts of 755 in Russian embassy. Maybe he should look to trim his own staff?

“You realize Mr. President that the State Dept organizes US delegations to [the Global Entrepreneurship Summit] — those same people you just said were not needed in Russia.

“Our diplomats, professional staff, and military serving in Russia provide Washington with invaluable information about Russia. Imagine wanting to know less about Russia’s military modernization! That’s what Trump praised today.

“Imagine wanting to know less about Russian foreign policy intentions and plans! That’s what embassy personnel reductions will do.

“Imagine wanting to have less capability to gather data about dangerous transnational diseases originating in Russia! Trump seems to want that.

“Imagine dissing Americans — patriots serving our country under difficult conditions in Russia — to praise Putin. Our president did today.”
