European far-right populists: In Putin we trust

After the surprising victories of the Brexit and Trump, any election that involves a far-right populist who peddles isolationism, Islamophobia and nationalism is a concern. Cue in yesterday's Dutch election where Geert Wilders' Freedom Party failed to prevail and thus seems to have stemmed the populist tide. But let's not forget Geert's like-minded pal Marine Le Pen, who is running in the French presidential election next month. Geert, Marine and the rest of their posse of European far-right leaders frequently meet up, most recently last month in Koblenz, to talk about their pet causes like breaking up the EU, cosying up to Russia and erecting walls.
