This is an epic take-down of Trump’s clumsy clueless response to Putin ordering 755 US Embassy staff out of Russia by (lamely) thanking him for reducing US payroll. Donald Trump would rather trash US Embassy staff than say anything remotely negative about Putin. 

Ex-Russia ambassador rails against Trump over praise of Putin

BY BROOKE SEIPEL 

Former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul railed against President Trump on Thursday after he thanked Russian President Vladimir Putin for ordering the U.S. to cut its diplomatic staff by 755 people.

McFaul, who served as ambassador from 2012 to 2014, has previously spoken out against the Trump administration, saying in May of this year that he thinks "Russians are laughing" at the U.S.

Our Embassy staff know how to do their jobs, unlike president Trump who doesn’t even seem interested in (or capable of) learning how to do his demanding job.
