Discussing the troubled vote counting in Florida’s Broward County, Doug Schoen, political consultant and author of a series of books on Russia, said Friday that the ongoing electoral chaos showed the world that Putin has won, and the Russian dictator was laughing at Americans.
After host Harris Faulkner asked what Russia must be thinking, Schoen was unsparing.
“Putting aside the Russia investigation and the specifics, Vladimir Putin has won,” Schoen said. “He’s won because we are fighting among ourselves and we’re going to keep fighting among ourselves.”
Schoen agreed with fellow panelist and Washington Examiner contributor Beverly Hallberg that the U.S. electoral system is deeply flawed.
“The Russians laugh,” he said ruefully. “We can’t administer our own country, we can’t administer our immigration policy. We can’t even run our Congress.”
