Dear Leader called Putin a genius, as Russia attacks a democratic country. Weak men love what they believe to be strong men, and Putin is an autocrat. Of course Dear Leader, who desperately tried to cling to power and who set in motion an insurrection to help him subvert the will of the people, is a weak man who wants nothing less than to be an autocrat himself. It only makes sense that he’s stroking Putin’s ego. If Dear Leader were president, he’d already have loaned out the Army Rangers, the Navy Seals, and the Marine Corps to Russia. God’s Chosen One.
