Many Americans are joking about today's events while my friends and colleagues abroad are stunned and horrified.

I have come close to tears while writing about today's events. One Brit friend said, "I hope this isn't the death of your democracy."

I hope not, either.
What concerns me is that Americans are already inured to Trump's outrageous behavior and thus are shrugging this off. Many on the left are making inane comments like "we knew, so what?"

This isn't just about America. This is about the free world versus dictatorship.
The FACT that the POTUS spoke out AGAINST our own government in defense of a foreign dictator who attacked our country as clearly as the 9/11 attacks should give every American a frisson of fear.

Two superpowers aligned today against the West.

#HelsinkiSummit
#Putin made Trump sit and wait--he was nearly an hour late. Putin was in charge of every aspect of the #HelsinkiSummit.

Trump became hysterical over reporters' questions #Putin just chuckled and demurred. Trump talked about his Electoral College win while Putin laughed at him.
Trump took a step today that sent chills through the world--he chose #Putin over his own government, the one over which he is Commander-in-Chief. He did not stand up for us/U.S.

That is a concern for the world.

John Brennan called it #treason.

Who else will be so bold?
