Russian state TV celebrates Trump's chaos

As reported by investigative journalist and Russian media analyst Julia Davis, Russian state TV is celebrating the chaos.

On Thursday’s episode of the Russian state TV program “60 minutes,” the hosts gleefully highlighted the disarray Trump has caused and cheered on the possibility that he would plunge the U.S. into further chaos by declaring a state of emergency over a non-existent border crisis.

“Then we will finally defeat America,” declared co-host Olga Skabeeva.

Meanwhile, other segments on Russia’s state TV highlighted the controversy over funding for Trump’s border wall — and as seen below, it appears that Russian media is taking its cues from Fox News.

The opinions expressed on state TV provide important insight into the Kremlin’s perspective on domestic affairs in the U.S. Since Russian TV is controlled by the state, the only views and statements that are allowed on state TV are ones that the Kremlin approves of.

Sowing divisions around issues such as immigration was a focus of Russia’s 2016 influence operation, and clearly it remains a focus today.

As Retired General Gen. Hertling explained, the Kremlin likes to see the U.S. in a state of chaos because it puts us in a weaker position on the global stage.

“Our dysfunction remains a delight for Russian state TV, because it meets Putin’s strategy,” Hertling wrote in a tweet.

So, Farb thinks the Dems called Russian tv and fed them fake info about fake chaos. And then Russian tv reported about it. That sounds a little far fetched. Especially when you look at these screen shots.

Why am I not surprised in the least. Putin has achieved his goal of compromising our country and influence. We are the pariahs now. Can't be trusted by our allies because of Trump. How much further down the rabbit hole are we going?

Interesting response here. Margie tries a Hillary deflection and Farbauti goes with the entire Democratic party. Lets just ignore this problem right? Russia is celebrating the results of their interference in our electoral system. Oh Joy. Lets have more of that.

The kremlin was dancing in the streets when they got trump elected. They now can't believe how successful he's been at destroying world comity and weakening the US. Heck putin's already declared that the US is no longer a world power, and he's also stated he's happy to step in and provide soy beans and other ag to China, now that the US is putting up trade barriers. And whose given him any pushback over the increased military incursions into Ukraine? No one, that's who.
