Donald Trump has found the father figure he has always longed for. The need Trump has for a loving, affirming father will outweigh any logic, any argument, any political reason to mistrust this man.
Far more than the lure of money or the value of building contracts, Trump’s soul has found nourishment, approval, affirmation — and woe to anyone who tries to come between him and his soul-mate.
Vladimir Putin affirms him, wants to “work” with him, supports him. The slightest compliment, a firm handshake, even half a smile from Putin will reach straight into Trump’s heart and dazzle him.
No logic or rationality can separate the two.
