We always knew that Donald Trump had an unsettling amount of admiration and envy of the dictator types. Frankly, no one could ignore the way he behaved when it came to the likes of Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un.
But now that his favorite Russian dictator has launched a violent, all-out war the former president’s feelings regarding Putin have truly been showcased for the whole world to see. And just when you thought it really couldn’t possibly get any worse, a former member of his own administration comes out with a revelation so sickening and troubling that it quite literally left a pit in our stomachs.
Speaking during a recent appearance on ABC’s The View, former White House press secretary Stephanie revealed how, in her educated opinion, former President Donald Trump felt a heady mixture of fear, intimidation, and admiration when it came to Russian dictatorial President Vladimir Putin.
“Honestly, I think he feared him. I think he was afraid of him. I think the man intimidated him,” Grisham explained when asked for her thoughts on Trump’s feelings about Putin.

“I also think he admired him greatly,” she went on to add. “I think he wanted to be able to kill whoever spoke out against him.”
“In my experience with him, again, I’ll just say — he loved the dictators. He loved the people who could kill anyone, including the press,” the former Trump White House Press Secretary went on to explain. A 2017 report from the Washington Post shed a light on 10 individuals who were vocal critics of Vladimir Putin that went on to die in violent or suspicious ways.
Grisham used the appearance to publicly slam her former boss, noting that while Ukrainian President Voldomyr Zelenskyy is fighting right alongside his people to defend their country from the Russian invasion and attack, Donald Trump would undoubtedly be hiding and cowering away in fear somewhere far away from the conflict.
“I just want to say this. In watching all of this, with Zelenskyy — Donald Trump would be 57 feet below ground hiding. And Zelenskyy is out there fighting for his country, and I just think that’s great,” Grisham fired off.
Grisham is currently one of the dozens of former Trump officials who are working diligently to ensure that Donald Trump never sees the inside of the United States White House again.
