Establishment Angry because Trump has Exposed their Past Mistakes

Currently unpopular Russia scholar, Stephen Cohen, has an interesting theory about why the establishment seems so unhinged toward President Trump these days.

Cohen argues that President Trump has exposed the establishment’s past mistakes and they hate him for it. Cohen says that Trump is willing to admit that the nation has made foreign policy mistakes in the past, and that he refuses to repeat those mistakes simply because the establishment wants to protect their image.

Here’s Cohen on Fox News with Tucker Carlson:

For 75 years, the president of the United States, beginning with Roosevelt, has met the leader of the Kremlin.


Beginning with Eisenhower, in the atomic age, the main purpose was to avoid war with Russia. Right now, we are in a new cold war fraught with hot war from Ukraine to the Baltic region to Syria.


President Trump did not have a choice. He had to go, as his predecessors did, to meet with the leader of the Kremlin, Putin. And he did. We don’t know exactly what they decided. We will learn.


But never – never! – not only in my lifetime or history has a president coming back from doing his duty to avoid war with Russia been greeted with this pornography passing as news analysis and commentary.


He is literally being called traitorous, treasonous. And I don’t know what we are going to do because if we can’t discuss the issue, how can we think about our policy?

But there is a good piece of news and I will state it quickly. Ever since the Soviet Union ended, relations with Russia have gotten worse and worse and now we are where we are.


And we ask ourselves why did that happen. Communism is gone; the Soviet is gone. And the answer here is always – it’s an orthodoxy. It’s biblical.


You can’t dissent from it without being accused of being pro-Kremlin. The answer is Russia is to blame. Putin is to blame. The United States has done nothing wrong.


And now, the president of the United States has said something absolutely heretical. He said at first in a tweet and after the meeting with Putin.


And it was very simple, but it was profoundly true. He said we have bad relations today because both sides are to blame.


And I think that’s what underlies their fury at him. That he has become a heretic in the American policy system. He has challenged the fundamental axiom of American foreign policy for 25 years…


What President Trump has done – and in this regard, though I didn’t vote for him – I say three cheers for President Trump. He has said, look, we are in a dangerous situation with Russia and it’s not just Russia that’s to blame. We are to blame. We did wrongheaded things back in the 90s. And since.


What we need to do, this is me speaking now, having acknowledged that, is have a discussion of where our policy toward Russia went wrong, first under Clinton, then under Bush, then under Obama. It is fully bipartisan.


But what Trump has given us, if the media would allow him, is an opportunity to rethink. And if you don’t rethink, how do you get policy right? If you don’t get policy right, we are talking about war.
