Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America learn from the late National Review founder William F. Buckley that the left drew a moral equivalence between the USSR and the United States during the Cold War, and they warn President Trump not to make the same mistake. They also compliment Chris Wallace of Fox News for asking pointed questions about election meddling to Russian President Vladimir Putin, but they fear the interview and Putin’s weak answers will soon be forgotten. And they fret that the left has taken fair criticism of the Trump-Putin summit to preposterous extremes by labeling it as morally equivalent with 9/11, Pearl Harbor, the Cuban Missile Crisis and Kristallnacht.

    The moral equivalence argument is something that Trump has used before. He never gets too far away from his New York Liberal roots.

    What if the Russians “hacked” the Dems and Hillary because, like the rest of the world, they “knew” she would win the election. What kind of blackmail or embarrassing material might they collected. But I’m sure the 33k deleted emails were all about wedding plans and yoga appointments.
