President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin meet in Helsinki (Screen cap).

The Lincoln Project on Tuesday released a damning super cut showing how often President Donald Trump has shamelessly sucked up to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The new video, which features Britney Spears’s “Oops, I Did It Again” as its soundtrack, begins with Trump refusing to say whether he believed that the Russian government was responsible for poisoning Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

“Uuuuhhhh, we’ll talk about that at another time,” the president said this week of Navalny’s poisoning.

It then cuts to a clip of Trump’s infamous Helsinki press conference with Putin in 2018 in which he absolved the Russian president of any responsibility for interfering in the 2016 elections.

“President Putin, he just said it’s not Russia,” Trump said. “I will say this, I don’t see any reason why it would be.”

It then shows assorted clips of Trump complaining that Russia was thrown out of the G-8 after it illegally annexed Crimea, praising Putin for winning an election that many observers have called illegitimate, and describing overall what Putin has done for Russia as “really amazing.”

Watch the video below.

This article originally appeared at Salon.

Indeed, back at the start of the pandemic, alcohol sales skyrocketed — increasing in the United States by 55 percent the week ending March 21, 2020, compared to the previous year. While some data suggests that people have been drinking more during the pandemic, at least initially, the pandemic has also prompted a life re-evaluation, with many Americans reconsidering the role of alcohol in their lives.
