VIA| On Sunday morning, ABC anchor Stephanopoulos went after the GOP front-runner for his praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin last week. The stink of bias will be so clear to see in the video below.
If you missed it, Trump complimented Putin after he was called a “very talented” person. Trump embraced Putin’s praise as a “great honor.”
Stephanopoulos then brought up allegations that the Kremlin has been involved in orchestrating the deaths of political opponents and journalists.

As you will hear in the video below, Trump responded:
“But, in all fairness to Putin, you’re saying he killed people. I haven’t seen that,” he added. “I don’t know that he has. And you’ve been able to prove that you know the names of the reporters that he’s killed? Because you’ve been hearing this, but I haven’t seen the names. Now, I think it would be despicable if that took place. But I haven’t seen any evidence that he killed anybody, in terms of reporters.”
Why didn’t George “Clinton” Stephanopoulos provide proof? Why did he keep hammering the issue when Trump answered him the first time? Why is it Republicans show up on liberal talk shows but you never see a Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama appear on the Sean Hannity or any other conservative talk show.

After all, George does know a bit about the benefits of maintaining good relationships with some pretty sketchy characters. Seventy-five thousand dollars in the pocket of a corrupt organization here and there may be morally objectionable, but George appears to believe that the benefits reaped may be worth the questions it raises about your judgment and character.
Watch the video when Stephanopoulos couldn’t prove any journalists were killed. The ABC anchor then tried to change the subject. This was very good by Trump:
The reality is there is no evidence Putin ordered killings, and there is no reason for him to kill. He is the most popular Russian president of the last 150 years; he doesn’t need to kill anybody.
