Puppet String Theory

Trump responds with silent impotence to Russian aggression. When Germany determined a Putin opponent was poisoned. When Russia placed bounties on our soldiers. When Russian soldiers harassed our soldiers. However, he can harass a woman for "unsafe hair treatment". When he needs to defend our country against villains and viruses, Trump responds with "I take no responsibility".

Putin tugs on Trump's heartstrings like a master marionettist.
