Glenn comes across as quirky, pro-Russia and anti-hillary. I don’t believe anything he says, but as homphobia affects him personally he could be right or he could pursuing his own agenda. I’ll continue to follow the story and see how it plays out.

Glenn is not pro Russia and anti Hillary. He is a journalist with an overview opinion. He’s not biased against Russia and Hillary. He’s just showing their position in politics from a larger perspective.
