The GOP cheered these five vile things Trump did to Zelensky

Only five?

The current GOP narrative is that Trump was clearly a genius because Putin didn’t dare attack Ukraine while he was still in office. Not that they can point to anything Trump ever said or did to discourage such an attack, of course.

Or they knew Trump was such an unstable president that they couldn’t count on his having a predictable response to their invasion.

Pardon the vulgarity but I am spreading this around like Vladimir Putin’s untreated syphilis.

That brings back memories of Military School anti-sex / STD films they’d show us, untreated syphilis was one of the star films [disgusting beyond words], I really payed attention.

The real reason is that Putin wouldn’t put Trump in a position where he had to impose sanctions or do anything else harmful to Russian interests.

If that’s true in the least it’s not That Trump had sway or scared Putin but rather that Putin wanted to make Trump look good because Trump was a useful tool.

In a weird pathological way, Trump being in power might actually have postponed Putins planned invasion, but only because Trump is so vastly incompetent, so vastly deleterious to US national security:

Putin was possibly swinging for the fences. He knew that, with Trump in power, there was a fair chance Trump would have the US unilaterally leave NATO. Should Putin have invaded, Trump wouldn’t have the opportunity to find the “freeloading” NATO “useless” and a “burden” to US might. (You’ve heard of Nixon’s Madman theory of deterrence: this is the Stupidman theory of deterrence.)

I think that there might be an even simpler explanation: Putin may very well have calculated that invading Ukraine would cost Trump the election in 2020.
