The media needs to stop trying to break up President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump gave Putin his final rose, and at this point they have a miniature poodle named Flynn and a Prius they share.

Sure, the commoner would think that asking about the Russian president’s decision to force the U.S. Embassy in Moscow to cut its staff by some 755 people would infuriate the American leader. But until the media accepts that President Pee-Pee loves the husky Russian and all his shirtless photos, the answer is to be expected.

And, yes, Putin’s move was in retaliation for sanctions imposed by Congress—sanctions the U.S. president can’t lift by himself because Congress knows love when it sees it—in response to Russia’s obvious meddling in Trump’s presidential win.

But was Trump upset by his lover’s show of force? Of course not. In fact, he thanked the Russian president!

“I want to thank him because we’re trying to cut down on payroll, and as far as I’m concerned, I’m very thankful that he let go of a large number of people, because now we have a smaller payroll,” Trump told reporters at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., the Washington Post reports.

“There’s no real reason for them to go back. So I greatly appreciate the fact that we’ve been able to cut our payroll of the United States. We’ll save a lot of money,” he added.

Trump stopped himself from saying: “Did you see the shirtless picture of him with the fish! He’s bae all day!”

Trump may have been joking, and if he was (which we all know that he wasn’t), doesn’t that speak volumes about the president whose administration is under investigation for its obvious Russian connections? And think about this: The president of the United States condemned Congress’ sanctions against Russia but praised the Russian president’s move against the U.S.

Our president doesn’t just have a man crush on Putin; he and Putin have had a civil ceremony and have had to explain in little words to Donald Jr. that two warring countries can love each other in the same way Daddy once loved Ivana.
