NBC’s Matt Lauer’s awful attempt at moderating the IAVA Commander-in-Chief Forum can only be surpassed by Donald Trump’s pathetic performance. Lauer questioned Donald’s professed love for Russia’s Vladimir Putin.
Donald said, “Well, he does have an 82 percent approval rating, according to the different pollsters, who, by the way, some of them are based right here.”
Lauer, in probably his only decent moment last night, said, “He’s also a guy who annexed Crimea, invaded Ukraine, supports Assad in Syria, supports Iran, is trying to undermine our influence in key regions of the world, and according to our intelligence community, probably is the main suspect for the hacking of the DNC computers.”
The idiotic GOP presidential nominee responded, saying, “Well, nobody knows that for a fact. But do you want me to start naming some of the things that President Obama does at the same time?”
Lauer asked him if he wanted “to be complimented by that former KGB officer?”
Well, I think when he calls me brilliant, I’ll take the compliment, OK? The fact is, look, it’s not going to get him anywhere. I’m a negotiator. We’re going to take back our country. You look at what’s happening to our country, you look at the depleted military.
You look at the fact that we’ve lost our jobs. We’re losing our jobs like we’re a bunch of babies. We’re going to take back our country, Matt. The fact that he calls me brilliant or whatever he calls me is going to have zero impact.
Donald added, “I think I’d be able to get along with him.”
Lauer then asked, “Do you think the day that you become president of the United States, he’s going to change his mind on some of these key issues?”
Donald said, “It’s possible. I don’t know, Matt. It’s possible. And it’s not going to have any impact.” “If he says great things about me, I’m going to say great things about him. I’ve already said, he is really very much of a leader. I mean, you can say, oh, isn’t that a terrible thing — the man has very strong control over a country.”
Now, it’s a very different system, and I don’t happen to like the system. But certainly, in that system, he’s been a leader, far more than our president has been a leader. We have a divided country.
In case you missed it, Donald disrespected our military in front of Veterans.

Right in front of our country’s veterans.
