President Donald Trump’s blistering tongue and stinging tweets spare almost no one. But there are two blatant exceptions to his saturating rhetorical fire: Vladimir Putin and Stormy Daniels.

The President never shrinks from slamming his perceived foes from Rosie O’Donnell to the cast of “Hamilton,” to slain political enemies like “low energy” Jeb Bush and estranged political guru “sloppy” Steve Bannon.

He’s jabbed allied leaders such as Britain’s Theresa May and Germany’s Angela Merkel, torched whole nations, such as Pakistan and Belgium, and teed off against retail giants including Macy’s and Amazon.

But the ex-KGB man in the Kremlin, who is accused of meddling with US democracy and ordering a nerve agent attack in Britain and the porn star who told 20 million “60 Minutes” viewers she had unprotected sex with Trump each get a mysterious pass from the President’s attacks.

Those omissions were especially noticeable on Monday as the Russian President and Daniels were vying for top billing on news shows.

As tempting as it must have been to hit back at Daniels, Trump kept quiet, possibly seeking to avoid being drawn any deeper into a thicket of litigation by three women who have brought sex-related civil cases to which he is linked.

Also Monday, Trump’s White House rolled out its toughest action yet on Russia, kicking out 60 diplomats over the attempt by suspected Kremlin agents to assassinate a former Russia spy in the sleepy English city of Salisbury.

But Trump, consistent with his practice of never personally calling out or criticizing Putin, was nowhere to be seen.

The reasons for Trump’s reticence were not clear, since he’s not talking. But there will be suspicions that he’s keeping quiet because both Putin and Daniels may know something about the President’s past that could hurt him.

After all, Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti insists he has evidence supporting her claims about an alleged 2006 affair with Trump as she seeks to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement. Trump has denied the affair, the White House says.

And special counsel Robert Mueller’s request for documents on Trump Organization business in Russia could suggest he wants to know if there is any activity the President would be keen to cover up and that could help provide a motive for a potential attempt to obstruct justice. Trump, again, has denied any wrongdoing.
