Hillary just tweeted a terse 18 characters which will go down in history. She replied to Josh Marshall’s tweet with a video of the last debate. Here’s the longer version of the video segment:
Hillary really unhinged Trump by saying Putin wants a puppet, “He’d rather have a puppet as president ….”
Tellingly Trump gets all defensive about himself being Putin’s puppet already and disrespectfully talks over her, “No puppet, no puppet, no, you’re the puppet. No, you’re the puppet.”
Watch Trump’s facial tell when Hillary says “YOU CONTINUE TO GET HELP FROM” Putin at 0:33, an explicit hand-in-the-cookie-jar expression.
With the retrospective view after the NY Times revealed the FBI inquiry, this video has new meaning. Pay attention also to when Trump interrupts her and when he doesn’t. He denies being a puppet even though not directly called one but when Hillary directly states Putin is helping him Trump has a guilty blush and just grimaces while shaking his head.
Let’s give Hillary’s tweet the love it deserves.
Like I said: A puppet. https://t.co/BeBfYMJcic
