LIMBAUGH: Trump Is Not Acting Like He Owes Putin Anything

RUSH: The media narrative on this collusion business is that Trump is owned by Putin. The narrative is that Trump received information from Putin via the honey pot that was damaging to Hillary, that Putin, therefore, is owed by Trump, that Trump owes his victory to Putin.

This is what they’re trying to construct. They’ve been after this for nine months, that Trump and Putin colluded. And the idea that Putin is the master puppeteer and Trump is the novice that doesn’t know what he’s doing and Putin’s brilliant and Putin’s tough. And Trump is an egoist and he’s a narcissist and he can be played and manipulated easily.

They’re trying to make the case here that Putin owns Trump. And yet I don’t believe that’s the case because Trump just agreed to sell Patriot missile defense systems to Poland yesterday in an apparent counter to the growing Russian threat on European’s eastern board. The memo was signed by Trump on his first day in Poland, according to the Poland defense minister.

He said, “A memorandum was signed tonight that the U.S. government has agreed to sell Poland Patriot missiles in the most modern configuration. I am glad that I can pass on this information on the day of President’s Trump visit to Warsaw.” This happened when Trump was in Poland. It’s now actually done.

So if Putin owns Trump and if Putin’s a marionette, if Putin’s a puppeteer and he’s pulling the strings and he’s got Trump in his debt because he helped Trump beat Hillary, Trump isn’t doing a good job of paying him back here. If Trump was owned by Putin, those missiles would not be deployed in Poland today. That deal would not have been made.

It was Obama who wanted to take those missiles out and never deploy them. It was Obama who wanted to curry favor with Putin. It was Obama who was asking Putin for more time and flexibility. Trump is not acting like Putin owns him. Trump’s not acting like he owes Putin anything. I think all this is gonna turn out very badly for the media who think they’re on to something here, because some of these things just don’t add up, as they haven’t added up for nine months.
