Cheerful Putin after the violent trumpet uprising

Russian President Vladimir Putin was practically radiant as he left a Russian Orthodox Christmas Eve service on Wednesday. Speaking to reporters on state television, he gushed about “the anticipation of a miracle” that can get a person through any difficult period in their life. Putin was not talking about the United States, of course, but he could just as well have been: the outgoing American president had just presented the Kremlin with the biggest Christmas present imaginable by inciting a violent insurgency. Hundreds of Trump supporters descended on Capitol Hill, launching a brazen attack that tainted America’s most treasured symbol of democracy and attempting to overturn the outcome of an election in favor of their conspiratorial idol.

Russian state media had played their own part in amplifying Donald Trump’s baseless allegations of electoral fraud and gleefully predicting that post-election violence would inevitably follow. “There will be blood,” Russian lawmakers and state media officials said, a prospect they deemed “excellent”.
