Trump Critics Enter the Twilight Zone, Claiming He’s a Manchurian Candidate for Putin
by Stephen Lendman
US establishment figures are so hellbent for Hillary, they’re reaching new lows to make her America’s 45th president – a legally challenged, trigger-happy Wall Street tool she-devil perhaps eager for global war.
Trump is no solution to changing America’s deplorable state. Compared to Clinton, he’s the lesser of two malign forces. 
With no public track record, he’s judged by his rhetoric alone, along with knowing all politicians and wannabe ones lie. Nothing they say is credible. Judge them by their actions alone.
Clinton’s notorious history is abominable, DNC party bosses and complicit media scoundrels suppressing what’s too scandalous and criminal to ignore.
Trump’s unorthodox, anti-establishment-sounding rhetoric makes him political enemy number one. Propaganda targeting him incredibly suggests he’s a Manchurian candidate for Putin. Maybe accusing of being Hitler reincarnate comes next. 
Brainwashed Americans believe most anything repeated enough. Propaganda works this way – a tool for deception, for misinformation and Big Lies, for convincing people about anything powerful interests want them to believe, suppressing hard truths they’re not told.
One-sidedly supporting Clinton, Washington Post editors call Trump “a threat to the Constitution…a unique and present danger…uniquely unqualified to serve as president, in experience and temperament.”
The New York Times deplorably said Trump’s calling on Russia to find Hillary’s 30,000 missing emails is “another bizarre moment in the mystery (sic) of whether (Putin is) seeking to influence the United States’ presidential race.”
Trump said “(o)f course I’m being sarcastic” in urging Moscow to uncover and reveal Hillary’s missing emails. 
“They have no idea if it’s Russia…China (or) somebody else,” responsible for hacking and revealing DNC emails. “(T)he real problem is what was said” and done. “It’s disgraceful…and (now) they’re just trying to deflect from that.”
Calling Trump a Manchurian candidate for Putin reflects how far US dark forces will go to distract attention from their own wrongdoing – aided and abetted by media scoundrels, substituting managed news misinformation for hard truths.
One observer said calling Trump a Manchurian candidate sounds like pilot for a new TV show. Another suggested he’s a Democrat plant to get Clinton elected.
Trump and Putin never met. Suggesting he’s a Manchurian candidate for Russia’s leader or fronting for Clinton is absurd, offensive, and typical of US mainstream misreporting.
Trump entered the race to win. Any close examination of his demeanor, comments and energy show he wants to be president. 
How he’ll govern if elected remains to be seen. Progressive change is off the table. If he wants normal relations with Russia, all to the good. 
Whether he means what he says can’t be believed unless and until he proves it, if elected in November.
