    All the type of comments I am referring to made by the left, or non-Trump, media, are framings, suppositions. I would like to offer a different framing, other suppositions.
    Obviously we don’t know for sure if Putin and his THUGS “have something on Donald Trump.” Do we really know if Trump is the way he is about Russia and Putin because Putin is holding him hostage with a pee tape or whatever? We don’t even know if Donnie believes that Russian Trump tower will EVER happen at this point.
    Does Putin even need some pee tape or tower?
    My frame…
    All the money he and his sons have been given? That’s not “hostage” that’s payment for being Pro-Putin and for a future they both are attempting to bring about. Payment for the promise of a future ally in a newly shaped superpower power coalition; axis of evil. Against NATO nations. Against democracy. Against Republics that use voting as a basis for who attains power. Against all those who resist authoritarians and an authoritarian wannabe. (Soon to be?)
    I wonder if Trump and the GOP have election interference envy? They have to work so hard at it. In comparison Putin has it easy. Putin gets to decide who runs, what parties exist and who to murder who stands up against him. This is why Trumpians love Putin so much. We have yet to make a habit of sending out assassins and finding some way to murder our Navalnys. Unlike Russia, neither party has yet to give the head of the country the right to eliminate any party that is anti-Trump or anti-Biden. But we are headed that way with Trump.
    Don’t start on me regarding the Trump indictments: those were “due process,” except unfortunately Trump and his lawyers are quite good at jerking the system around to cause delay after delay. If that were possible in Russia Navalny would still be alive and free. Just like Trump. Even IF he ever goes to prison it sure as hell won’t be some artic circle hell hole.
    More envy: Trump certainly wants that ability, has more than just suggested it if he gets in again. Putin and Trump and Trump share a goal: ultimate power, all the money one can imagine and squash those on the other side. Putin has that, Trump wants it and Putin is his teacher,
    Trump isn’t Navalny, as he suggests, he wants to be Putin and be able to send Seal Team 6 after Biden, Jack Smith and even peons like you and me.
    Trump has seen what Putin has and wants it too. He wants to eliminate any true opposition, have dictatorial power from day one. If he gets it and you think it will only be the first day you’re a damn fool.
    His every effort, his constant rigged comments made before even the 2016 election are part of the plan. HE WILL NEVER ACCEPT ANY LOSS, and that’s his intent. Is he too stupid to design and keep up such a plot? Maybe, but Putin isn’t, and who do you think pulls Trump’s strings? Who has met with him in secret? Must be tough sometimes. Trump is no way as clever and deceptive as Putin.
    All that time behind closed doors with Putin without any reporters, other Americans. Only Putin’s own people. Why? What did they talk about? Is this all part of the plan?
    I am not claiming Trump is some clever, brilliant strategist-plotter. Far from it. At least a useful idiot and Putin has every reason to guide Trump in that direction.
    Is my framing accurate?
    At least as accurate as falling into the Trump as the victim, being held hostage by Putin, frame.
