During a recent segment on CNN's Anderson Cooper, Paul Begala, CNN contributor and long-time ally of the Clintons, suggested that the United States should bomb Russia in retaliation for meddling in the 2016 election.

“We were and are under attack by a hostile foreign power,” Begala told the panel. “We should be debating how many sanctions we should place on Russia or whether we should blow up the KGB, GSU, or GRU. We should be retaliating massively.”

“If I was Trump supporter, I would want to retaliate massively because it has tainted his victory," Begala added.

Democrats have come a long way from 2012, when they laughed at the suggestion that Russia was America's #1 geo-political foe.
