UPDATED (7/31): Tucker & Stephen Cohen On The Anti-Russia Porn Parading As News Analysis

Stephen Cohen, professor emeritus of Russian studies, history, and politics at New York University and Princeton University, to Tucker Carlson:

“I want my president to do what every other president has done. Meet with the head of the Kremlin to avoid an existential crisis—war—between the two nuclear superpowers. Sit with the other side and walk back the conflict. The Trump hunters, however, prefer trying to impeach Trump to averting nuclear disaster.

AND:

“Why the hostility to Russia AFTER the collapse of the Soviet Union?”

Why do Deep Staters dislike Putin, “president of post-Communist Russia, more than they disliked the leaders of communist Russia?”

I can partially answer that, Prof. Cohen: These people are so stupid and ignorant that they prefer to think of Russia as a socialist state, when it is politically nationalist and economically mixed. (See the Russian Journal of Economics, Volume 3, Issue 2, June 2017, Pages 109-128: “Lessons in stabilization and prospects for growth: Russia’s economic policy in 2016.”)

The rest of the answer owed—why the establishment hates Russia today, while it loved Russia of yesteryear—that’s more complicated.

UPDATE (7/31):

Wrong title. Corrected: Brilliant Russia scholar, Stephen Cohen, makes Mad Max Boot Cry. Boot is the warmonger con who said he’d sooner vote for Stalin than Trump.”
