Trump Thanks Putin for Expelling 750 Diplomats; Former CIA Official Says Deep State ‘Will Kill’ Him

In this day and age, calling for the death of the President is a totally legitimate form of public discourse.

Here’s the set up.

Trump was asked about Putin expelling 750 America diplomats, which he replied, jokingly, thanking the Russian leader for helping him trim payroll expenses. Inappropriate? Maybe. More Trumpism.

Enter Phil Mudd, ex-deputy director ofthe CIA’s Counterterrorist Center and the FBI’s National Security Branch, who casually said the ‘deep state’, aka permanent government agents who’ve been on the job for 20-30 years, would ‘kill this guy’, referring to the President.

Jake Tapper tried to help Mudd walk back the comments. But as you saw, Mudd meant what he said and had no discernible reason to use those words in that context other than calling for the assassination of the President.

    Trump is doing a great job of showing you how irrelevant your democracy is.

    Statist thugs don’t care about your opinion or your vote, do what they say or they will kill you.

    Wow. I understand, however that about 700 of those so-called US personnel were Russian citizens working in administrative roles – that is probably the intent of the ‘back-handed’ compliment of Trump.

    However, Phil Mudd (Any relation to the infamous Dr Mudd who patched up John Wilkes Booth?) is going to get a knock on his door from the Secret Service or US Military (both place security cordons around Trump’s movements) in 3, 2, 1 …

    From the Guardian:

    ‘As of 2013, the US mission in Russia, including the Moscow embassy and consulates in St Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok, employed 1,279 staff, according to a state department inspector general’s report that year. That included 934 “locally employed” staff and 301 US “direct-hire” staff, from 35 US government agencies, the report said. That breakdown suggested that the actual number of Americans forced to leave Russia would be far smaller than 755.

    “We don’t have 755 American diplomats in Russia,” said Michael McFaul, a former US ambassador to Russia, in a post on Twitter on Sunday. The cuts seemed likely to affect how quickly the United States was able to process Russian applications for US visas, he added.

    “If these cuts are real, Russians should expect to wait weeks if not months to get visas to come to US,” he said.’

    How much of an idiot is Trump?

    Example #854
    There are no cost savings for expelled diplomats. They still have jobs.

    These are not diplomats, they are mostly local Russian Embassy staff.

    Funny, I saw Trump’s statement as an eff you to Putin, while the hysterical CNN guy saw it as supporting Putin.

    Obviously US citizen employees of the gov’t will remain employed in some capacity.

    Dude… he wasn’t saying murder .. he was saying they were going to make his life miserable.
    Maybe you need to listen again… or maybe put on a MAGA hat under the strong New England sun. I applaud any career govt employee who tries to keep our country safe and stable under Dr. Strangelove Trump. They are true patriots. And you were worried about HRC and Russia… ha ha.

          Love when you use pictures rather than words. Knowing one’s limitations is so important. Ask your mom for lots of pretty colors and remember to stay in the lines.

      This dirty Mudd cunt is personally responsible for one of the most calculated, painful and deadly torture programs the deep state will admit. Do you actually think he’s just joking about the Presidents death on live TV? He’s as cold as killers come and does not fuck around.
