Rabid leftists have been on the latest bone of contention with President Trump after his public congratulations to Vladimir Putin for his victory in the Russian election for a fourth term.
For some on the left, such a gesture is confirmation of his pro-Russia, conspiratorial attitude.
But wait, didn’t Barack Obama congratulate Putin as well?
Let’s check the fact checker. Oh, yes, indeed he did.
And not only that, he promised in a hot-mic remark to Putin he could work more closely with him after his re-election in 2012.
Gosh, we almost forgot also: Obama remained quiet after receiving intel of Russian election meddling.
Who’s the pro-Russia conspirator again?

After controversially calling Russian President Vladimir Putin to congratulate him on his recent election victory, President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday that former President Barack Obama had also given Putin a congratulatory call.
“I called President Putin of Russia to congratulate him on his election victory (in past, Obama called him also),” he tweeted.
Obama called Putin in 2012 several days after the results were announced to congratulate him on winning his presidential election.
