In a brief battle over exactly how much Donald Trump loves Vladimir Putin (is it just a lot or more than he loves his own children?), Trump offered the most infantile, absolutely incredible retort of his campaign thus far. Specifically, Trump went with the tried and true, “I know you are, but what am I?”

It started when Trump alleged that Putin doesn’t respect Clinton, the implication being, of course, that having a secret crush on the Russian leader is preferable. Hillary answered with “Well that’s because he’d rather have a puppet as President of the United States.”

Trump’s response:

No puppet. No puppet. You’re the puppet. No, you’re the puppet.

Good job, buddy. You did it. You really got her.
