Donald Trump should be no more immune to criticism regarding his foreign policy (or lack thereof) than any other president. But it should go without saying that if you’re gonna go after him for his relationship with Russia, you’d damn well better have a leg to stand on first.
Too bad Ben Rhodes missed that memo. In response to this admittedly unsettling news:

Rhodes tweeted this:
Putin getting a high return on his investment as Trump shreds the Atlantic alliance and reaches out to Russia. https://t.co/xpYY9dQ2GV

Oh, Ben … you really should’ve sat this one out. You should sit everything out.

And speaking of returns on investments …
Not as much as Iran got from you.

Though, he must be pissed that Iran got so much more for no investment whatsoever. https://t.co/frq7N0lSND

You mean as in pallets of cash?

Obama gave Iran pallets full of cash. Wondering what was his return on this. Follow the money
