CNN regular claims Trump wishes he could murder foes like Putin

When it comes to the electioneering commitment certain cable news networks on the left embrace to help ensure Donald Trump is defeated at every turn, there are few limits on how far talking heads can go in furtherance of that sacred goal.

Russia remains the liberal media’s favorite avenue of approach when it comes to smearing the former president, and with polling consistently showing that Trump would defeat President Biden desperation is setting in.

CNN political commentator Maria Cardona not only took the Russia offramp, she went so far as to say that Trump wished he could kill political opponents like Russian President Vladimir Putin while trying to blame the presumptive 2024 Republican presidential nominee for the death of opposition leader Alexei Navalny at a remote Arctic penal colony.

“It is so incredibly ridiculous — bone-chilling, but not surprising, because clearly, everything that you just played tells us what Alice [Stewart] just said as well, which is not just that Donald Trump is afraid to stand up to Putin, but that he admires Putin,” Cardona said. “And let’s remember, during the whole arguments of presidential immunity Donald Trump had his legal team argue that the president of the United States could have Seal Team Six go after and take out his political opponent and the president would have political immunity.”

This is a mischaracterization of what took place in the courtroom — Obama-appointed judge Florence Pan presented “this wild scenario” at Trump’s lawyer during arguments about presidential immunity, according to Newsbusters.

Cardona suggested that this influenced Putin decision to allegedly kill Navalny.

“Who’s to say that that did not inspire Vladimir Putin to at this moment in time, kill his most ardent opponent because he says one of the most powerful politicians in the United States of America is not going to say anything against this,” she opined, before putting words into Trump’s mouth.

“In fact, he’s going to admire me for it. And who’s to say? But in secret or maybe not so in secret, when this happened, Donald Trump didn’t say, ‘You go bro, I wish I could do that here.’ And we need to do everything in our power to make sure that he does not get — Donald Trump does not get anywhere near the Oval Office because it has everything to do with the future of our democracy as well.”

The whole argument about saving our democracy has grown stale. It amounts to little more than Marxist double-speak by those who seek to use “democracy” to fundamentally transform America — which is a constitutional republic, NOT a democracy.
