Letter: The 'Manchurian Candidate'
Has anyone in trumpworld read the "Manchurian Candidate" by Richard Congdon? Message to trumpsters: your man is a Russian plant. If you don't believe it, watch how Putin tools on our feckless, malignant, narcissistic, neo-nazi and you'll see what I mean. The trump has not been so much brainwashed as blackmailed, the result is the same: a fifth column, as it were, groomed and dispatched to wreck our country.
Step back and look at Putin, a mafia don, KGB functionary who is ripping off the Russian people, who surrounds himself with low-life criminals posing as oligarchs, who suppresses all dissent by killing journalists and the opposition and who hopes to bring us down to his level.
Now check out the trump, who surrounds himself with lying sycophants and toadies, neo-nazis, anti-semites, right wing goofballs and propaganda artists, who calls journalists "the enemy of the people."
Watch the trump play little dog to Putin's alpha male and you might see why the blackmail theory looks so obvious.
