Трамп - марионетка Путина (Trump is Putin's puppet according to Google)

Do you think that the second-tier politicians (not the candidates themselves, but those in the public eye, Democratic pundits, etc.) should consistently refer to Trump as "Putin's Puppet"?

Would it be an effective message (think of all of Trump's constant insults, such as "Little Marco Rubio" and "Lyin' Ted" Cruz). If not "Putin's Puppet," what would stick? I know it's juvenile, but could it be effective?

1. Google doesn't always get it right

But in this case, it's accurate.

It is not helpful or necessary for Democrats to refer to Trump as "Putin's puppet." It would make us look petty, and besides, he already acts out the part to the point where no further emphasis from us is even necessary. If it's not obvious to you now, it never will be, even if Putin poses with Trump on his lap while he pulls the strings.

2. Yes, I did check it both ways - English to Russian/Russian to English.

At times, I want to be petty. I guess that's my problem. I suppose the only people who would respond to pettiness would be his base, and we're not wooing them anyway.
