Washed Up Ex-Governor Howard Dean Believes Trump Would Hand Alaska Over to Putin
Some people can’t get over the Russia “collusion” hoax.
Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean is one of them.
CNS News reported on the latest manifestation of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Dean recently went on CNN and said if Russian President Vladimir Putin wants Alaska back, President Donald Trump “would give it to him today.”
Sharing his thoughts on the 2020 presidential race CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, Dean remarked, “I used to say it all of the time, and now it has a new meaning, but if you are not tough enough to get through this process, what are you going to do when Putin asks for Alaska back?”
“Well, unfortunately, we have a president who would give it to him today,” added Dean.
Michael W. Chapman noted the following:
“The Russian government sold the Alaska territory to the United States in 1867 for $7.2 million (approximately $125 million in 2020 dollars). It became the 49th state of the union on Jan. 3, 1959.”
Howard Dean was the Democrat governor of Vermont from 1991 to 2003.
Dean gained recognition in the Bush era for his antiwar stances and made a lot noise by nominally positioning himself as the anti-war candidate during the Democrat primaries of the 2004 election cycle.
Interestingly enough, Dean did not feel the Bern in 2016 and did not endorse fellow Vermont resident Bernie Sanders.
