RUHLE: “Can you find — is Vladimir Putin someone you would respect? Someone who kills journalists, who’s invaded Crimea, is that a man you respect?
FLYNN: “I mean, stop it with that kind of stuff. I mean, this is a nuclear state Iran —“
RUHLE: “I’m sorry, stop it with what, sir? Stop it with what?”
FLYNN: “How you’re describing a leader in the world that is — actually, that we have to deal with. We’re dealing with him right now.”
RUHLE: “May I ask you —“
FLYNN: “We have to deal with Russia.”
RUHLE: “Without a doubt then.”
FLYNN: “We cannot make Russia an enemy. Russia is a nation that is deeply involved in the Middle East right now. The Middle East is totally unstable. We have over 5,000 of our own troops there in Iraq trying to fight, you know, the rise of ISIS.”
RUHLE: “Then, general —“
FLYNN: “Russia’s right involved so we have to figure out ways to work with them instead of making them an antagonist.”
