The people who still have faith in Donald Trump believe that Trump is a true man’s man – a real macho, take-no-prisoners tough-talker who gets things done. They’ll be pretty upset to learn that Trump has responded to Vladimir Putin’s decision to expel hundreds of U.S. diplomats in response to new U.S. sanctions against Russia by telling him “thank you.” The Republican tough guy rolled over like a scared puppy, showing that he’s too weak to lead this country. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.
