Trumpian Greenwashing: Russian media racketeering and suppressing the 2020 vote

Russia’s useful idiots are also proxies. In a bid to repeat 2016, the swing states will have third-party efforts as well as support for non-Democratic efforts. In this case the self-proclaimed “environmentalist” declares that he supports the Green Party, but not really. Like greenwashing, it’s bait-and-switch.

Stop using GOP talking points re: healthcare – you already “pay for it”
