Putin was not betting on Trump, he was betting on creating chaos and the media is fulfilling his bet

NY Times:

Putin’s Bet on a Trump Presidency Backfires Spectacularly

If the sanctions passed by Congress last week sent any message to Moscow, it was that Mr. Trump’s hands are tied in dealing with Moscow, probably for years to come.
The Times still does not get how it has been played by Putin along with the Democrats.  What Putin was trying to do is create questions about whoever won the election and the media seems complicit in fulfilling Putin's desires.

The sanctions will hamstring diplomatic efforts of the Russians and the US in dealing with each other for years.  What the Times still does not get is Putin was trying to foment trouble for whoever won the election.  He was using Fusion GPS to go after both sides.
