Fmr Secretary of State Madeleine Albright Says Trump Is Russia’s ‘Useful Idiot’ (Mediaite)

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said that Trump fulfilled the role of a “useful idiot,” an old Soviet term for a puppet politico that could be easily manipulated.

Albright, who served under Bill Clinton, told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchellon Monday afternoon that she was concerned about the provenance of the leaked emails from the Clinton campaign, which multiple intelligence agencies believe to have been stolen by hackers connected to the Russian government,

It was, she said, an unprecedented case of a foreign power “interfering in our electoral process.”
