At a minimum, Trump appears to have a deep financial dependence on Russian money from persons close to Putin. And this is matched to a conspicuous solicitousness to Russian foreign policy interests where they come into conflict with US policies which go back decades through administrations of both parties. There is also something between a non-trivial and a substantial amount of evidence suggesting Putin-backed financial support of Trump or a non-tacit alliance between the two men.Sound crazy?

Holy crap. He killed it.Donald Trump, however, felt otherwise:
I’m not trying to spin you. I’m sitting here in shock. Shock. Tim Kaine was unbelievable.
He was natural. He was smart. He was relaxed and funny, and he was serious. He was proud of himself and his wife and family but never arrogant. He was humble without ever being cloying in that way the politically humble can often be. He was genuine. He was unbelievable.
And part of the way through, this thought struck me: He is the perfect choice for her because he comes across as so at ease and so real. These are two things, as we know, that Hillary Clinton has a lot of trouble with. She’s too scripted, she’s a phony, all that stuff. Kaine was just so easy-breezy, so comfortable with himself and in this role, that he has the potential to wash away a decent chunk of that negativity about her.
Just saw Crooked Hillary and Tim Kaine together. ISIS and our other enemies are drooling. They don't look presidential to me!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 23, 2016
Don't think people are really grasping how plausible it is that Trump could become president. It's a close election right now.— Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) July 23, 2016
Norma's link to Rachel Maddow was a fine, but lengthy road to the actual point…
Yep. One could go far with changing them. My favorite, and very simple, change would…
Donald Trump needs to put his toupee back on.
