I should clarify: Russia is hostile to loyal Americans. Of course they are not hostile to evil scum who align with Putin.

Hostile in the sense of at war with the USA?

Or just sort of generally hostile?

Russia is hostile against anything and anyone it perceives to be a threat to their full regional hegemony.

Far enough, but the context was an accusation of treason against the USA.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/to ... b9fe16e877

Article starts off about Trump tweets but goes full-on insane in the middle.
The question of whom they should believe — the president or his advisers — has befuddled European officials. German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel confessed Saturday that he didn’t know where to look to understand America.

“Is it deeds? Is it words? Is it tweets?” he asked.

He said he was not sure whether he could recognize the United States.

Away from the glare of television cameras, many European diplomats and policymakers echoed the same concerns. One diplomat, speaking on the condition of anonymity to avoid provoking Trump, asked whether policymakers like McMaster who adhere largely to traditional U.S. foreign policy positions were falling into the same trap as Germany’s elite during Hitler’s rise, when they continued to serve in government in the name of protecting their nation.

The answer, the diplomat said, might be found after a “nuclear war,” which he feared could be provoked by the Trump administration’s hawkish approach to North Korea.

Perhaps if the Brits and the rest of the fucking europeans were a bit more hawkish they would have killed Hitler after Czechoslovakia. Or during the rearmament. Or as he was murdering jews.

Two faced cowards, I refuse to take a moral lesson from any goddamn european. v Murder is in their blood.

For all I know, this isn't fake news at all.

But the fact that it fits my preconceptions so perfectly causes me to doubt it. 8)

Hillary Clinton’s security detail laughed when she broke her elbow
NY Post
Hillary Clinton’s security detail hated her so much that they privately snickered after she accidentally fell and broke her arm when she was secretary of state in 2009, one of her former guards told the Post.

Clinton, then 61, was in the State Department basement on her way to meet President Obama when she took a spill — and ended up in the hospital for an operation to repair her shattered right elbow.

“We sort of got the last laugh. It was kind of like payback: You’re treating us like s–t. Hey karma is a bitch! We were smiling to ourselves,” the agent told The Post on Wednesday.

But Clinton, who frequently behaved like a diva-in-chief, according to the agent, made it worse by pointing the finger at her detail for the mishap.

“She blamed us for breaking her elbow, saying it was our fault and we could have prevented that. She’s bad news,” the agent said.

...

The agent also said Clinton acted like she was president while serving as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013 and once made a visibly annoyed President Obama wait for her as she schmoozed with foreign dignitaries at the United Nations.

...

By contrast, the security detail loved former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Clinton’s predecessor who served under George W. Bush.
