Just a thought I had this morning while reading a Kristof column; I thought I’d share it here:
When Putin denied hacking our election, and Trump believed him, how did Putin keep from laughing in his face? https://t.co/ARihKaCBjc

That Putin’s good, you know that? He’s the pro from Dover when it comes to this kind of thing. That KGB training wasn’t wasted on him.
He and his buddies at the Kremlin have to be pinching themselves constantly, so delighted they must be that, against all the odds, the thing they tried to bring about — sure as they must have been that it was a hopeless task — actually came to pass. There’s no way to know to what extent their interference contributed to the result, but they tried, and it happened.
And it’s working out so beautifully for them, far beyond their dreams…
