In a shocking turn of policy that is probably very welcome to critics of Trump’s bro-love for Putin (like myself), Sean Spicer said that Trump expects Russia to return the Crimea to Ukraine!! What?!
I love how he makes sure to mention that it was taken under Obama, just to jab him a little.
That video is from Russia Today, and you can tell because it puts “return” in scare quotes in the title to let people know that they believe little Crimea was legally theirs in the first place.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian embassy’s account tweeted the video, without the scare quotes.

Wow. So what’s the deal here? It was Flynn who was accused of being too pro-Russian, and his previous campaign manager Paul Manafort had ties to Russia, and changed the GOP platform to help them out. Why the about face now?
Whatever the cause, the effect is welcome!!
