Watch this all the way through to the end. It's short.

Roy Moore speaks Russian and says "Maybe Putin is right." From an interview with @guardian - the end of this 1 min excerpt is chilling. https://t.co/2HnEOVJdDY pic.twitter.com/O7ymV4XInF

There's nothing wrong with fluently speaking a foreign language of course. Maybe he's one of those people who just picks them up easily. But it seems unlikely, don't you think? The only time he spent overseas was in Vietnam and a year in Australia.

It's just ... surprising.

Update: Ah. I missed the part of the Guardian piece which says he learned the greeting at West Point.  Never mind ...
