Trump reminds me of Neville Chamberlain (1938-saying Hitler wants peace)

There is something eery about Donald Trump saying Putin didn’t meddle in the 2016 election.  Top US intelligence officers have said otherwise, but Trump is gullible enough to believe Putin over the evidence.  This reminds me of Neville Chamberlain’s statements in 1938 that Hitler has pledged to want peace.  Then Hitler went on the blitz and started invading country after country.

Now Trump is saying Putin wants to cooperate in Syria-while a Russian/Iranian army is still fighting to prop up a repressive regime there, against our Saudi Arabian/Kurdish army-while Trump is even being investigated for Russia collusion in his election.

We all know what happened in the roll-up to WWII- the lone dissenter to Neville Chamberlain’s capitulation to Hitler.... was Winston Churchill, who went on to bravely lead the Brits through their darkest hour.  Looks like John McCain is the most verbal critic of Trump’s seeming capitulation to Putin, so let’s be where this one goes, right?
